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.

Candle hut The name of the place is: candle hut resort, so guys is it not a resort and this is the main problem. It is all about expectation. If u calls yourself a resort than treat your customers as in a resort, it is much closer to a spacious guesthouse. Poor maintenance, beach chairs are rotten rusty and broken.... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in the sea view villa. The room itself was very nice and spacious with a gorgeous outdoor shower. There were some large spaces under doors which allowed a cockroach to sneak in. So we had to shove towels under all the doors. The beach is amazing and beautiful, quiet and great for swimming. The...

The fact to have an hamac on the balcony is nice but it should put some long chairs also. Windows should be cleaned and the curtains. The beach is... More

Stayed for just a few nights and it was nice enough....but found it to be overpriced in comparison to other locations in Koh Phangan. We were rather disappointed in the lack of friendliness of the restaurant staff and the need of TLC in the bungalow. The location and view and layout of the bungalows is great, but the overall upkeep... More
