“Great place”

I have nothing really to add to all of the previous comments.We found Winnie and Peter wonderful hosts and the hotel very much as expected.One thing though, make this an Adults only hotel, its perfect for it.

Spent 4 happy days and nights here in Feb/March having made a decision to stay based on reviews whilst in Chiang Mai. It turned out to be one of the best decisions of our 4 week trip around Myanmar and Thailand. Peaceful, great location, outstanding pool and Peter and Winnie lovely, laid back people who will help in any way they can. Hard to fault.

A lovely family friendly hotel which is a haven of peace away from the hurly burly of Phuket. The hotel is well run and the facilities are all that is necessary for a pleasant and relaxed holiday. Good swimming pool and air conditioning - very important when the temperature is in the mid thirties. Can recommend.

We stayed at pen Vila for only one night. Very easy to book online or by phone. Rooms on the top floor are the best; large, spacious and clean. The best bit of the stay was the lovely staff. Especially the owners Winnie and Peter, who made the stay very homely. Winnie's home cooked food is a MUST, some of the best Thai food I've tasted. Very short walk from surin beach too where u can see a beautiful sunset. All in all we had a brilliant short stay....... A wonderful guest house if you want a quite, peaceful break.

Not the Fanciest place but the rooms are large, clean and have all the required ammenities. The best part of Pen Villas are the friendly staff and easy going nature of the establishment. Nothing is too much trouble and always willing to help, advise or just have a friendly chat.
They really help you feel like you are on Holiday
Large open foyer/restaurant, large pool and fully stocked bar.
Ask at reception and they will get you a rental bike or a Taxi within minutes
Surin is a swanky area that is a little spread out so if you have a little rental bike than you can hit all the beaches and restaurants and not have to pay top dollar for Accom on the Beach front. If you like to walk it will take 15min to get to the beach.
Small fridge in the rooms so the staff more than happy and expect you to stock up with drinks, nibbles and whatever you want to buy from the convenience store. Closest 7-11 is literally 75m away.
Great mix of Guests from all over the World, friends, couples and Families all staying here. Great Vibe

Room Tip: Can only recommend the Top Balcony rooms as this is where we stayed. Checked out the other rooms...a...

We spent a week at this wonderful hotel and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. I had read reviews on Trip Advisor prior to our visit so had high expectations. We were not disappointed - the hotel was everything we had hoped for and more. It is an oasis set back from the main road and a few minutes walk away from the hustle and bustle of the sea front. When you walk through the door you enter the relaxing, friendly atmosphere of a small hotel. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and all look out onto the immaculate garden and pool area. We had a ground floor room with a small kitchen area which was great for a longer stay. The air conditioning was very efficient, all the windows had mosquito screens, there was plenty of storage space and a lockable drawer which was useful for valuables (although there was also a safe at reception for guests to hand in valuables if they wished)
What we really loved was the warm welcome we had from all the staff but Peter and Winnie in particular - nothing was too much trouble for them and they always found the time to stop and have a chat, suggesting local restaurants, places to visit or just a friendly conversation. Winnie cooked us some fabulous meals, so good we opted to eat in the hotel most evenings as she always had something new to suggest after her daily trips to the local food markets. Peter serves up a mean mojito - well worth trying! A fabulous place to stay!

We have spent four nights in this fantastic hotel. The large and comfortable rooms, the big swimming pool filled with spring water, the garden, all are beautifully looked after and very clean. Peter and Winnie run this excellent guesthouse in a very professional way. They are passionate by doing everything for their guests, as they think is the best. They want to make the guests as happy as possible, but without overdoing it. Winnie is a passionate cook and can cook according to your individual taste using fresh products bought daily at the local markets. For guest ordering Swedish meatballs she would prepare them, for those desiring to taste traditional Thai cuisine, she would prepare her grandma’s best recipes. Both Winnie and Peter are delightful hosts and thus every moment in the hotel was a pleasure.
Within easy walking distances there are three beaches and the proximity of several shops makes life easy. Peter and Winnie can advise you the best restaurants according to your personality and culinary mood.
