We stayed at Hillside for only one night as we were doing a diving course on the island. This was a huge mistake. It was our most expensive nights stay out of our whole 3 weeks in Thailand, and can safely say it was the worst. We had booked the most expensive 'hut', we stayed in A28, and it was... More

I loved this hotel, staff were so fantastic, the views and bungalows are breathtaking. Good food and drinks in the hilltop restaurant. Wish I was still there. Not good for mobility issues and not central to the shops etc but taxi only a few pound and if you adventurous you could walk it. You will love this hotel and it's... More

The resort is set in the most beautiful location, about 15 mins from the catamaran pier. Our twin room was cosy, the beds hard and the air con very effective. The rooms were basic but comfortable. Food in the restaurant was tasty and the cocktails at the beach bar were delicious and served by a fun, dreadlock wearing barman. My... More

We had booked and payed in advance for 10 nights at Hillside in July. When we got to our delux bungalow after a scary lift down the steep hill in a golf cart we were hoping to finally relax ! Unfortunately the entire bungalow was completely rotten. You couldn't use the deck as the floor boards all moved as did... More

The two nights we spent here were the worst hotel overnight stays we ever had. The cabins are very dirty. Insects can easily come into the cabins, because there are holes in the walls and gaps under the door and between the balcony doors. A lot of vermin was roaming around the rooms, it was disgusting! Also the sanitation was... More

As an expat living in Thailand and experienced traveler in the region, I can honestly say that this was by far the most disappointing holiday I’ve had. The first thing that hit me when I arrived was the rundown state of the place. The walkways and banisters are rotting and ant infested. The rooms are basic and run down. The... More

During the transfer to the pier to catch the boat to Koh Phangan we heard from a german couple, who stayed also on this resort, that they missed 400€ that morning, they have there money back thanks to a quick reaction of the...

This hotel is located at north side of the island, it is too far away from everything. U have to eat at the restaurant that the hotel provided, otherwise you have to rent a motorcycle to get to the downtown.The hotel only provide 2 shuttle service. If u miss it, that's ok, just pay them to drive you. Awful experience!
