“Absolutely brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

This was by far my favourite place I stayed in Thailand. Really reasonably priced. The welcome is friendly and the place is lush. The bungalows are simple but nice located on the beach. Cleaned daily. The food is cheap and really good.
close to tons of nice shop and supermarket. Will highly recommend!

Stayed February 2014

Enjoying our stay here so far! Poo the owner is very friendly and so helpful. Nice relaxed place and a few steps away from the beach. Rooms cleaned daily and water is replaced daily which is fantastic.

We have stayed here 5 times since 2006 and just love the place, the houses with a view to the sea, the friendly and helpful personnel and the generel atmosphere. We accept the small mishaps that can happen because the price is so reasonable and the beach is fabulous.
We will always return to Green Beach when we are in Thailand on holiday.

Room Tip: If you like the view and sound of the sea then spend the extra bahts and get a house right next to t...

We (3 persons) spent the extra money to get a beach front bungalow. It was worth the extra 500 Baht. The room service was good but you should be aware that fornt desk clerks are not very good in English. Trip to Chong Fah waterfall on a moto bike Taxi was perfect. Snorkeling trip was booked worn on a wreck diving trip with no possibilities for snorkeling.

The service for the room was realy freindly and good. And for the money it is probably the best bungalow you can get there. I stayed in Nang Thong Bay I resort before, where the service is more professional - but you have to pay the difference.

Green bay room service - for me - was perfect considering what I had to pay. Reservation mad in August worked perfectly for the holiday season over X-mas.

For the food: the Tom Yang Kung in the Green Beach Restuarant is a bargain and delicious.
In the evening and for the breakfast we preferred the nearby Nang Tong Bay Resort I Restaurant.

Room Tip: Spent the extra money for the beach front bungalow!

Stayed 1 night. Surprised to be charged 50 baht for internet access, as it's been a standard free/included service throughout SE Asia (at places with internet access, at any rate). Even more surprised to find that access only allowed connections about half the time, and when it did connect was so slow as to be borderline unusable. Incredibly frustrating when trying to book or confirm onward travel arrangements.
Rooms were simple but nice, although thin-walled. We were in the bungalow next to the main beach access path, which meant we heard restaurant staff on their way to and fro, with clanking carts of food and other items, as well as snippets of other guests' conversations.
Beach is good enough at high tide but not at low tide. At all times watch for hidden rocks as you walk in to the water. Some garbage in the water and on the beach.
Beachfront restaurant: reasonable food at reasonable prices.
In short, you can do better elsewhere.

We stayed for 4 nights in feb 2013
Yes, it's on the beach, and it's looks like "tree houses" (that children like !!) but
Aircon is noisy and cannot be left at night
No curtains, so at 6 am, you are awake !!!
The walls as so thin that you can ear your neighbours, and all the animals outside so You ca'nt sleep well
The service at the beach restaurant is "average" and for just a few baths more it's much MORE better and the Nang Tong Beach just a few meters beside

My husband and i have done plenty of backpacking, so we are fine with rustic accommodations. but we were horrified by the treatment and accommodations at Green Beach. A number of inconveniences, oversights and unpleasant interactions with the manager, Alapat Nikam, added up to a very stressful stay. This place may be a bargain, but it's not worth it.

Overall, the place had the feeling of something that might once have been rustically charming, but hadn't been maintained in two years. The garden setting was completely overgrown and unkempt. The grounds were dark, plants were untended, and empty flower pots held murky standing water. There were about 20 large open trash bags full of plastic bottled in the garden area between two bungalows on the path to our bungalow - though these weren't visible from our bungalow, they were visible from the porches of the other bungalows along the path.

Inside, sheets were clean, but the bungalows were musty-smelling and cobwebbed, with leaky bathrooms, dusty light fixtures, and moldy walls. The mosquito nets had large holes. The back door to our outside shower didn't lock, leaving our room exposed to anyone who hopped over the wall.

The staff had us switch rooms for our second night (of which they informed us before we'd arrived but well after we'd paid) and when we arrived to our room in the evening the second night, we found the A/C was broken. Until then we had been frustrated but resigned. This was the incident that convinced us to leave. We called the manager, who tried unsuccessfully to have someone fix it. It was swelteringly hot and humid. We asked to be moved to another room, and he told us he had no other rooms, and blamed us for the situation, saying we should have told him earlier. (We had just arrived back to the hotel after being out all day.) He raised his voice at us and several times walked away from us as we pled for him to find another room. Finally, he had one of his workers move us to a bungalow facing the beach. There was mold and dirt running the length of the wall, and pools of water on the bathroom floor from the toilet leaking. We were exhausted by this point, so we slept there and decided to check out in the morning.

In the morning, we asked for a discounted or complimentary night, and Mr. Nikam became angry and threatened to call the police. The man was an absolute nightmare.

Lastly, I wish only to note that the handyman/bag attendant, Chi, was an absolutely lovely man who treated us wonderfully, spent hours trying to fix the A/C and was very sweet and concerned.

We ended up moving to a place that wasn't on the beach, and it was so much nicer, and only a short walk to the beach, and we were so much happier. Find something off the beach or outside Khao Lak if you can't afford a different beachfront resort, but definitely don't choose Green Beach.
