We stayed for 6 night in a very expensive room. Still the staff and manegment were very roud. Everything you need you need to ask 3-5 times. Cleaning room service was very pool. We stayed with 2 children and no consideration from the staff at all. If there was other place available we would have gone there. Breakfast was lack... More

It consisted of air con, fan, hot water shower, bar fridge, double bed and hammock on the little balcony. Breakfast was included every morning. The view of... More

We have been to Candlehut several times and if you want a perfect beach with basic but comfortable accommodation then this is great. A front line hut with perfect sea views from your hammock will cost less than £30 per night including breakfast. If you want more luxury there are modern more expensive bungalows but for me clean, relaxing with... More

They've got one of the best and largest properties on the beach, a restaurant/bar (looked good but pricey), nice luxurious looking villas and older more basic bungalows. So much potential...wasted. It wouldn't take much to make it so much better. The place is empty as service is simply non existant here. Lots of staff at the restaurant (almost always empty),... More

Bugs in beds and place is old, never renovated, but the location is good and the beach is great when there is no storm or big waves. As most of the people I like Tong Nai Pan Noi the other beach a lot more because hotels are better and food choice is the best on Koh Panghan.

Beside the perfect location, the rest is really bad, especially when you concider the high price they charge. starting with maintainace which suffers from terrible neglect: no body cleans the pool. we were two families with two kids, after two days we stopped using it, it was so dirty! no chairs arround the pool. few sun chairs on the beach...
