we stayed 6 nights in the beach house, the list price was 5000 baht/night we got it for 3000 but even that was way too expensive for the standard they offered, so bargain hard at the desk if u want the beach house, the whole resort is full of big potts of standing water that is a perfect breeding ground...

My friend and I on our first visit to the island in February had a terrible experience at this resort. We stayed for 3 days around the Feb full moon party and paid for our accomodation in advance. This resort is expensive and is also about a 10min car journey from the full moon party beach which suited us as... More

Yes, this is not the best hotel I have stayed at and it probably was a bit over priced. However... I was absolutely dreading staying here after readin all the terrible reviews and almost considered staying somewhere else. However upon arrival it wasn't that bad. Reception was average service. They were friendly, but some were not 100 % with their... More

Staff are lovely! some speak english really well! They do their own taxi service which is quite reasonable and comfortable. The roads in the area of Haad Rin Nai are mentally steep (20%+) so you can't walk around the road (but beach is nicer so who cares) and it's not advised to ride a rented motorbike because that's so dangerous...

Vimarn Samut Resort was the worst hotel I have ever visited. Not only did the guest rooms have bugs / sand fleas everywhere, but you have to request that your room get cleaned each day, and there's no guarantee that your room will even be cleaned. The worst part was the owner, who, upon my request to pay by credit... More

When I arrived there were an English couple in reception complaining and trying to get new accomodation, so that wasn't very promising..BUT... I was shown to my room and it looked absolutely fine. It had obviously just been cleaned and I didn't spot any roaches during my stay. This hotel is quite basic, so if you're looking for 5* then... More

We have strong suspicions that the positive reviews written about this "hotel" on other sites are the work of an english speaking owner or a tourist who was paid to post them. This place is beyond terrible. Located on a far and deserted part of Haad Rin, dirty and worst of all- overpriced. They misrepresent themselves online and charge prices... More

I stayed here in low season so expected the area to be as quiet as it proved to be. The hotel is an 8 minute walk from the pier, another 5 minutes on to the town, but walking back after 1800 you must clamber over rocks that jut out into the sea (so make sure you're still relatively sober!) The... More

Do not waste your money here! It is one of the most overpriced hotels I have ever stayed at. There were cockroaches in our room, the bathroom roof leaked and there was no television even though they claimed it as one of the best hotels on the island. Besides that, the air conditioning took forever to get cold and it... More
