“Did not honour booking.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

Make sure you have one room 4 your stay. We arrived at Pine Bungalow late aftrernoon after informing them via a phone call from the Thai owner of the hotel that we were staying in the night previous,that we would be arriving via the ferry. We were told by a rude member of the staff that as we arrived late are room had been given to some1 else. The treatment we recieved from the staff was very poor!! we were told we could stay in 1 room 4 one night and then change to another room 4 two nights at a extra cost. We did not agree to this and left to stay next door in a far better accomadation right on the beach owned by a German fella called Heiz.. We did eat at Pine but the service was slow and the staff were not intersted in any of the customers, so all in all if i were you i would look at booking next door.

Room Tip: Stay next door.

Arrived by minivan from Hat Yai, and the hotel picked us up in the city (for a fee). We stayed in the 600B rooms which had no A/C and only a fan, but it was just 3 bungalows in from the beach. The bungalow is well worn, isn't cleaned daily, linens aren't changed, and even though we removed shoes before entering, sand just kept getting in to the unit. If you needed more toilet paper or soap, you had to ask for it. We were only given one bath towel each. The bathroom had small ants and an occasional gecko. The bathroom is very small and there is no hot water. The shower and toilet are combined, so water gets everywhere in the bathroom. The vanity shelf by the sink was beginning to fall off, and the mirror was too high up that I had trouble trying to put my contacts in. Electrical outlets weren't very convenient. Mattress was too firm and the pillow uncomfortable. I would normally not want to stay in a place like this for more than a day, but the beach (and resort) is quite breathtaking making up for the shortcomings and we stayed for 4 days. Free WiFi was available in the restaurant area. The food was also excellent and several cats roam the grounds making for good entertainment for a cat lover like me. Scooter rentals were for a 24 hour period and recommend going in to Ao Nang for a day to see what a crazy beach town you're NOT staying in.

Room Tip: Having spoken to the other guest, I don't think the A/C rooms are that much better in terms of c...

Me and my partner stayed here not realising how far oit it was compared to where we wanted to be we booked air conditioned room for 1500 bht when we arived the staff are quite friendly there was not rly much atmosphere here very chilled out not even a bit of back ground music no where really near here to go quite secluded beach not that great our room was very basic full of ants inside and out but ok clean and comfortsble if it doesnt take thst much to please u and u r on a budget and domt mind sitting sround all day then this is for you we got bored here quite quickly and I didnt thimk it was worth 900 baht more just to have air con and sea veiw ur practically on the beach anyway they should all be no more than 900 baht a night fan bungalow r more reasonable and for what it is at 600 baht. However the food we had here was amaxing couldnt fault any of it.

Great food and wonderful location! The bungalow was just in the near of the beach and the food was delicious! The people were friendly but the 'architecture' of the place is awful! I would go back anytime!

I spent 3 days in this place because of the price and the review in Tripadvisor but still not so sure until we arrive. We were quite surprise when we arrived and saw the pickup van and the time travelled from airport to the Bunglow (approx 45 min).
When we arrived, the driver brought us straight to our bunglow without any registration, they handed over the key to us and the room is lock by a padlock, Once they handed over the key to us, they will just leave you alone until you check out.
I have booked a bunglow with aircon and near the beach, it is very near the beach (3 meter away)The room is very basic, double bed, a low pressure shower, a pill. No TV, no wi-fi. but that didn't bother us, the place is quiet, hammocks are all over the place, and we enjoy our stay there vey much, just lying under the sun, on the beach whole day, reading books, doing nothing for 2 full days.
This beach is beautiful but with a lot of rocks, the only time one can swing in the sea is in the morning till noon, when the tide is high,which is about 4-5 meter from my door step.
SHould have stay a bit longer if not because we are going to Bangkok after this.
The food in the restaurent is fantastic, and this is the only place with wi-fi and the signal is very good.
The staff are friendly, very helpful, and speak good English. They can help you to arrange tour and anything. though during my stay I did not get out of this place at all.
A truely nice place, if you do not mind the above and hang around to enjoy the surrounding. definitely will be back again.

This place was great. It's on an uncrowded part of Ao Nang, has a really nice, relaxed staff, is inexpensive relative to the quality of the experience, and has really delicious food. I would love to go back and stay there again.

We came here for 3 nights based on the good reviews and it didn't disappoint. It's literally on the beach and the food is amazing! Best food we have had in Thailand yet. The only disappointing factor was the bed, I have never experienced such a horrible bed, could pretty much feel the springs. If the bed was better we prob would have stayed longer. But over all a pleasant experience. The staff were lovely and helpful too!
