Stayed here for a week during the full moon season. The bungalows are spacious and nice, simple but for the price really good. They've got a nice little restaurant with cheap good food and the staff is friendly and helpful. There's a little private beach, perect for sunbathing although the water is not as picture perfet as some other beaches... More

This place is horrible. The staff are some of the rudest people I have ever met in my 10 months in Asia. All they care about is making money and they don't know the first thing about customer service. We were kicked out of our room after half our stay and told to switch rooms. We were promised the price... More

The room was dingy and not worth the 600 baht that we payed but we dealt with it for two days. Staff was unpleasant and unwelcoming (white british lady). On the third day we were eating breakfast when a commotion started between another guest and the rude front desk lady. They were trying to charge him for a scratch on... More

We would like to ensure all travellers that motorbikes are not a scam. We use the government issued form as required by law which all riders must complete before renting the bikes. Any existing scratches are pointed out in advance to rider and marked on the sheet. We then leave the rider for as long as they need to thoroughly... More

I don't usually leave bad reviews but this place was bad. Obviously places want to make money during the low season but this place squeezed money out of us at every opurtunity, sometimes through dishonest means. Being a little out the way they can take advantage as you have no alternative when you are there. Pros: Beach good Room ok... More

Thank you for your review, just to clarify there is a 3 night minimum stay at Full Moon period this is standard across the island. Touts at the pier do not work for the resort, they gave you a half price taxi on your arrival and you paid the set charge on the island on your departure. We check our... More

Stayed here during the Full Moon party and loved it. The pool and bar were great hang out spots and we met loads of other travellers that we ended up partying with too. Yeah sometimes the service is a little slow in the restaurant but this is Thailand and what’s the rush?!! Great view and decent beach to pass the... More

This place has by far been the absolute worst choice for lodging throughout my month of traveling in Thailand. I recently stayed here for one night with my two travel companions. We arrived in Kho Phanang mid-day and were soon after greeted by a woman offering 800 baht bungalows with 3 beds and air con. We're three dudes and sharing... More

On the one hand the hotel looks ok. The rooms are clean, air conditioned and close to the beach. But on the other hand there are many negative points. The hotel is located far from the city, you have to walk at least 15 minutes to the next 7eleven. The employees are only friendly when they can sell something to... More

For a budget place the rooms are fine. Unfortunately the two women who seem to run it are horrible. We read about the bike scam before coming to Koh Phangan but it is basically impossible to get around and not spend a fortune on taxis if you don't rent a bike so we decided to rent from the resort. It... More

The staff here are the most impolite, unhelpful and rudest people I've ever came across. We asked for some advice on where to print boarding passes and getting to other islands and they were as helpful as a brick wall when they had to simply tell us there was an Internet cafe at the top of the road. People are... More

Was here for 5 nights in September 2010. An average place that got what you need. Pleasant stay all in all. The beach is somewhat shallow, and not much for swimming, but they have a nice and cool pool. Restaurant right on the beach, good food. 7/11 right around the corner.
