“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Posiedon Bungalows are outstanding in every way. Beautiful place, amazing staff are friendly and responsive. The Similan tour is the pick of the bunch - amazing sea life and a great way to explore the Similan islands. The crew are all fantastic and my kids loved playing around with Lek, the young boat man. Food is awesome too!!! Jen, Greg, Oscar & Darcy

Where can you find a place with great food, friendly staff, cute and comfortable bungalows in paradise for $30.00 a night?? At first you feel a bit isolated but take a walk up the beach and there are resorts, restaurants and even a small shopping centre. The food was so good that I didn't go to the other restaurants. The island tour was fantastic with plenty of great food, good equipment and nothing was too much trouble for our guide Ester. Even the taxi driver they called for me was a sweetheart. Thanks to everyone for a really memorable time. Heather

Room Tip: If you are getting there from Bangkok its easier to go by bus. The train was very old, a bit dirty...

The tour to Similan Islands is brilliant - boat is charming, guide was very enthousiastic (thx Esther!, the pictures you took are great, too!), food was very good and accomodation comfortable.

Some kind of a name game or introduction to start with might be a good idea?

We stayed one night before the tour at Poseidon main house which was ok, but if you're looking for a longer stay I would recommend the bungalows.

Yours from Åbo, J and V

Poseidon has a great location for people who want to a hideaway - the bungalows are comfortable, the view and the birds that can be seen from the restaurant are great, and you can walk along the beach or take a taxi into town if you want to see more. The tour to Similan Islands is excellent - great boat, guide, food and local knowledge - and good value too. To be recommended for experienced snorkelers who want to do something different as there are many more fish varieties than round the islands to the south of Phuket.
The only disadvantage to the whole experience is that smoking is allowed in the restaurant and many tourists from Europe seem to be smokers. I'd forgotten how horrible that is (its long been illegal in Australia) until eating my first dinner with smoke wafting across my face. Please do something about it Poseidon!

Hi Jan, glad you liked it, and smoking is banned in the restaurant even as it is outdoors! There is a sign to this effect but some of the Thai staff are reluctant to confront customers....
We do provide a smokers corner with chairs just outside by the BBQ!

We had a very enjoyable few days at Poseidon. We opted for the economy bungalows which are definitely more rustic, but I prefer that. Rooms 5 and 6 overlook a beach, so there was a lovely view. The food was great and the staff are friendly too. I would go back.

The first time for us at Poseidon, but not the last one.
For our family with 2 children around 10 years it was perfect. The bungalows were simple, clean and comfortable. The price was nice and the food at the restaurant was good. The nature, view and surroundings couldn´t be better. Poseidon felt very familiar and our family felt very relaxed due to the nature and the staff at Poseidon. They were very helpful and gave us good information and recommendations of things to do. It was easy to travel to wherever we wanted and the taxidrivers picked us up whenever we wanted.
We had a nice day at Khao Sok, one wounderful day at Pang Nga and three outstanding days at Similan Islands with Ester as our guide. She learned us a lot about the "seaanimals" and took really well care of our children. The staff and food there was also very good at tho boat.
Many thanks to all of you at Poseidon Bungalows
