Good bungalow at tongsala, quite place beside the main road. Total of only 10 bungalows. Pool included. Good place to relax from the party life if the island. Besides one time that they did not clean the room (maybe they didn't pay attention to the"clean my room" sign), the overall hangout was good.

I stopped here on my own over xmas and new year, and it was spot on. Located just outside the centre, I couldn't fault it. Lovely surrounds, quiet, and reasonably priced (booked in advance so price was ok, probably would've been more if I'd have just turned up on the day). Had everything I needed, a decent bed, TV, wifi,... More

This place would be passable for a quarter of the price. The rooms were quite small, TV was an old CRT which did not work properly, hot water was intermittent and, most concerning, the room was often permeated by a tepid, nauseating stench from the nearby river/sewer. Note to self - never again book a room in a hotel located... More

First things first - if you have a cat that enjoys being swung, this is not the place for you. Bed was comfortable and the fridge worked. The internet was flaky, as was the TV and, most seriously, on 3 occasions in a 4-day visit, there was no hot water. I can forgive the rest, but when you've spent the... More

Came here as a group of twenties travelling. We were looking for something more off the beat and track from the regular tourist areas, and this fit the bill nicely. Large accommodating rooms with a bathroom to suit, very helpful owners willing to give advice and book taxis. The place is secluded enough that you could forget about the party... More

Stayed here with friends for 3 nights and all 5 of us were completely in love this beautiful villa. It has only few villas, therefore completely quite and secluded giving much privacy for couples looking for relaxation. Villa is new, modern, clean, beautifully landscaped and well maintained. Rooms are spacious enough for 2 pax. Bathroom is clean with good hot... More

What a great place to stay if you want to be close to the pier when you reach Phangan. We stayed at Mangrove Villa 4 nights with friends and were satisfied. It's modern, clean and well maintained by the owner and his staff. The villas are spacious, the bed confortable and the bathroom clean. Outside the villas there is plenty... More
