We were limited after to full moon festival for places to stay and this we thought would be OK judging from cost. To be fair we were wrong. It's basically a backpackers place. Very very basic and relatively clean. We had a family bungalow which is a big basic room with two double beds and a tiny wet room/toilet. We... More

WARNING: Some readers may find this review disturbing! I stayed four times at Beachside over the last three years. The 2012 and 2013 stays were fine: at the beach, close to downtown, minimal amenities but OK in a rustic way. The 2014 stays (two different rooms) were a nightmare. So, I report a 50/50 chance of a decent stay. First... More

On first sight the resorts looks ok. But staying there I would not recommend. Very rude receptionist, unprofessional staff, kitchen was never open and multiple times trouble with daily changing prices.

We paid 1200 baht for a bungalow with a/c, considerably less than we were quoted by other nearby resorts. At this price it was reasonable mid priced accomodation. As others have noted, the beds are pretty hard, but the room was clean, pleasant location, the owner was always polite and friendly and it was quiet. Creatures in the room -... More

Lets start with the only plus....it is near the beach and walking distance from all the restaurants. But that is all. The accomodation is very overpriced compared to other resorts (and certainly compared with hotels of koh samui or the mainland). We paid 3000 bath per night as a family but what do you get.... A room which is the... More

The bungalows look lovely from the outside and are in a great location with pretty surroundings. The rooms however are extremely basic for the 2000bht a night we paid. In the room was a bed, sidetable and a fridge. The beds were rock hard and it was impossible to get a good nights sleep. The fridge is filled with beer... More

Thankfully we only spent one night here. After checking in we were practically out of breath from trekking uphill to our 'bungalow' in the blistering heat. When we got the padlock off our door we turned on the light (there would be more light off a candle) we tried and failed to get our safe to work. To my horror... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in August 2012. We went for an airconditioned room . Room was large, with screens on windows, fridge, bathroom with hot water, a deck with chairs and a hammock. As is the Thai style the bed was hard but short of staying somewhere luxurious then expect this! The bungalows are in a quiet location... More

We landed a fan room for 450THB per night. Room was large, with high ceiling, clean, screens on windows, window winders that worked, front and back door, two decks, 1 x hammock outside plus two chairs. Room was quiet - no scooter noise. In the mornings by opening the doors a cool breeze would bring the scent of flowers into... More
