Pros:
- big room with nice big pool and huge terrace (we had the penthouse suite for two-Room 331)
- very nice turn down service where they bring daily a little something to snack on (very yummy)
- room with big couch, fully equipped kitchen, huge minibar, two TV's
- book directly through their website, to receive complimentary pick up and drop off at the airport
- nice breakfast
- friendly staff
- four bottles of free water daily
- free wi-fi in room

Cons:
- there was a huge stain (looked like a spoiled drink) just underneath the couch but I could see it while sitting there (made me wonder if they clean the room probably)
- door for the toilet is not completely covered so you can be seen while sitting on the toilet
- cotton pads where not stocked up, so I had only two to use for our 4/5 day stay
- coffee/tea, water, juices are for free at breakfast - however they do charge for latte's etc.
- TV channels have a bad reception, however they have a selection of DVD's to rent for free
- reserve cabanas at pool early

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Beach Republic. Probably one of the best rooms we stayed so far. Pool is ok. Mixed crowd. Could use a little maintenance in some areas. You either need to use a taxi or rent a moped or car to get around.

Room Tip: The penthouse suites as well as the rooms with the private pools are very nice.

We stayed beginning of February. Weather was great so everyday we spent part of the day near the pool..Yes must get in quick as daybeds go fast, very understandable as great music (chilled), beautiful pool area and great friendly staff thanks Aung. Food was excellent we were there for Chinese New Years lunch.Our room was a good size & comfortable.The only suggestion would be a couple of kayaks could be a added bonus :))

We went 2 times to Beach Republic, the 2nd time was our last day in Thailand and we wanted to stay in a place before our flight the same day. If not part of the hotel, you have to pay 1,000 bahts per person, this includes all the beverages and food you want up to 1,000 bahts so really worth it. The place and premises are beautiful, the beach according to us was much nicer than Chaweng and quite protected from the wind (no waves). The waiters and hostesses are super nice and friendly. Great choice of food and beverages for a good value for money. Cool atmosphere, with great music ( not too loud compared to Nikki beach).  Everything is pretty chilled so you'll have a nice time but don't expect a 'show off' atmosphere (unlike the Nikki). The hotel looks quite good but we haven't experienced it (it also has a spa).

We recently stayed at and had our wedding at The Beach Republic and we could not be happier.

Everything was perfect.

This hotel is a great place to stay, the rooms are great, spacious, fast internet, new, clean, good air con - fantastic.

The hotel grounds are very well kept. The atmosphere is so relaxed. The beach is good for swimming and the poolside area is perfect for a relaxing day.

The staff are great. Very friendly and helpful. We felt welcome and comfortable through out our stay.

The food is also really good. Everything you could want for breakfast, fresh and clean. Room service is fast and good.

The wedding planning and night was really good. I had no idea what I was doing but I was helped by the staff every step of the way. It was really fuss free and worked out cheaper than we planned. Our wedding day was amazing, the area was step up beautifully, the wedding planner was on hand through out the night, we had enough privacy and all my guests said it was the best wedding they have ever been to.

All in all we are so impressed with the beach republic as a wedding destination and hotel ~ we will stay there again!

As I write this we only have 1 night left of a week stay. The service from the moment we checked in, to the pool boys adjusting the sun umbrella for us has been first class.

As part of our stay we stayed 1 night in a 5 star hotel very near by (wedding), that cost in one night 4 times the amount we paid for here and do you know what .... I missed Beach Republic.

The ambience down at the pool is superb with the DJ playing great chill out music all afternoon. The sunbeds are the comfiest I have ever come across and the breakfast kept us going all day.

The cleanliness and attention to details all around the resort is second to none.

Our 2 bed penthouse has been phenomenal and could not have asked for more.

The only negative I have, is that 7 nights is simply not enough.

Keep up the great work all.

Our experience with the hotel was really positive. Whilst reception was quite odd and off-putting on arrival, the rooms were lovely and big with a kitchenette and lots of space. We asked to be moved to a higher floor and the hotel happily obliged. There we had a view and more privacy.

Whilst it's fairly small, there was always a pool bed free and the pool boys were very kind and helpful. The lovely big day beds facing the beach were so lovely, and you could get umbrellas moved, up or down to suit what you wanted. The pool got the sun all day and was very relaxing.

There is lounge tunes playing most afternoons, which was fun for us as a young couple, but may not suit everyone. The breakfast was delicious with lots of options and open until 10.30 so you can sleep in. The staff were so nice and really helpful, arranging a good speedboat company to take us to Koh Phangan for the full moon party and everyone was always smiling and obliging. If you want something with a bit of life then come here, they had an anniversary party whilst we stayed with fireworks and flame-throwers. Overall, I'd really recommend staying here. How could you not feel relaxed and looked after? Great time.

Room Tip: A higher floor provides a bit more privacy on the balconys
