We were staying at a nearby Resort and went by Thongtapan Resort's beachside restaurant for on dinner. We had the stir-fry vegetables, a vegetable soup, green chicken curry, and stir-fry pork with mixed vegetables. Portions were pretty generous and fare was well-cooked, excepting the pieces of corn which tasted like they had been frozen for a little too long or... More

We had a wooden bungalow with ac. It had a very simple decoration, but we liked that, it was spacious and clean, with a wooden balcony. The bungalows were surrounded by tropical plants and trees and the atmosphere was always calm and quite. The only downside was the mosquitoes even at daytime. We found the room price quite inexpensive. The... More

The resort is quiet and far away from the full moon crowd. It was a pleasant stay. Our room was nothing fancy, the service was good. They also have BBQ on the beach, it was very good. Getting from the resort to anywhere around the island, I would recommend renting a scooter. For 150baht a day, well worth it.

You are paying for the location, and the price is good. Thongtapan is on the best part of what is surely the best beach on Ko Phangan. We had one of the two beachfront superior bungalows (#2), and loved being able to step outside of our room onto the beach. We also loved the restaurant...the food was good and setting... More

This resort is really good value for money. I was surprised that the room was so nice for the money we paid. Yes, there is no fridge, that is the only thing I was missing, but still you get what you pay for and we could suvive without a fridge.. We stayed in the bungalows on the hill and the... More

This hotel is in the middle of nowhere and you will pay (min 1.500 Bath) a lot to any cab-driver to bring you to this place. The atmosphere of the houses is pretty basic and ours smelled terribly :( At night there is nothing to do and if you need something you are totally dependent on the hotel staff, which... More

Dear Veronique, We are disappointed to read your review, in particular your reference to fake reviews as there are several fake points with yours. We are a small family run business that has been around for over 30 years and such libel like your comment make our hard work feel even more impossible. Firstly we offer a taxi service from... More

Bradley, the manager was very helpfull when our toilet broke.Took 2 hours+ to fix.The Star Hut in the village in the best restaurant by far (especially their "Tom Yum Goong" Still the best swimming beach on the island.

Oh this place. I had a nightmare 12 hour journey to get to this place after a terrible bout of food poisoning. It had me from long tail boat, minibus, hot sweaty bus shack, bus, tedious boat ride, motor taxi in the dark and then a walk along the beach with my backpack. All I was thinking the whole time...

This is a resort situated on the beautiful and quiet beach of Thong Nai Pan Noi. They have the best restaurant in the area, staff is friendly and helpful. Bungalows are comfortable and simple, but a fridge and a hair dryer in a hotel, even if it's a bungalow, it's a must, and they don't have it. Overall, it's a... More

We stayed at the resort for 7 nights and had such an amazing experience. With complimentary beach chairs, a very large beach front area, and a short 5 minute walk away from the main road, this resort was fantastic. The best part of the resort was definitely the friendly staff! They were so helpful and kind, especially Mint, and so... More
