“Great price, clean Bungalows.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

A nice clean bungalow. Quiet but close to Khao Lak main road. Great price for all your needs if they are not too fancy. Very adequate. Staff very helpful with bike hire and anything else you may require.

Room Tip: Further away from pool are quieter at times. Did not ntry fitness centre and not sure there is one s...

If you looking for a nice affordable accommodation in central Khao Lak, this is the place for you. I have stayed here several times and it have not let me down yet. The staff speaks good English and will help you in any way they can.

Room Tip: The rooms around the pool area can be noisy but worth it if you plan to go up early in the morning...

Read about it on the internet, so I got the taxi from Phuket directly to this little place in Khao Lak and good that the cab driver knew about it. As it was off season, got one of the fan 'bungalows' for only 400 THB and it was worth every penny!! The place was almost empty and there was complete silence which was too good. The atmosphere here is extremely lazy, the guys at the reception do facebook or watch youtube, however rooms are cleaned every day and fresh towels are given too. There is a small restarant but it looks abandoned and it has a great pool too and loved the gardens. The Nang Thong beach is only 15 mins walk away and all eateries and tour operators are just along the main road. Had to check out early morning and the staff told me to simply drop the keys at the reception! For the money,its an amazing place!

The Banana Bungalows are great! They offer simple accommodation in an individual bungalow setting with a pool and restaurant near by. The staff that run this place are very helpful and friendly - particularly Min and Tan.

We stayed here for about 5 days while we did a dive course and then returned a month later to stay before and after a dive liveaboard for about 5 nights again. The location of this place is great as it is 60m to the main street where there are many places to eat and drink. It is also only 5-10 mins walk to the beach which you can swim at.

The bungalows are simple, have air-con or fans, fridge, safe, bathroom (hot water) and another an out door shower and front veranda/sitting area. The windows have fly screens which is great for mozzies! The resort also has a pool/motor bike rental and you can eat at the Dive In restaurant is next door or head to the main street. Overall, I found the sleep quality to be good.

This place is no fuss, easy going, friendly, clean and affordable!

One thing - it would be good if they re-opened the bar area in the evening as it is a nice area to sit around.

Room Tip: Depends what you like but we got a room two rows behind the pool area but the pool area is generally...

Great basic cheap accomodation with great staff.
Nice swimming pool. Free WIFI. Aircom rooms with large bathroom.
Min on the front desk was excellant for advice and help.
Off the main road so quiet.
Nice place to stop while moving onto the live aboard diving boats.
Will use again.
Didnt use the restaurant at all. Great food at the end of the road on the right.... sit outside the mini mart. Cheap as chips and very nice.

Bungalows are quit nice for the price. there is a small swimming pool and location is quit ok in town. 15 minutes walk to the closest beach. Free WIFI. Nice place to stay so !
Only one bad thing is the owner of the restaurant Banana Dive In Restaurant.
She was really awful and each time we get there. She move out guess when she want to close the restaurant even if we didn't finish to eat. She yell on the poor staff. She ask us to move inside the restaurant and not on the terrace because I use a computer. As i use computer during breakfast she want to change me 80THB (without said anything before). The girl give a very very picture of thailand ! the rest of the staff are very friendly specially people at reception.

Room Tip: dont go the Banana Dive In Restaurant !

This was the fourth time I stayed here and its always a pleaser to come back here. You have free wi-fi and access to a pool. The managers (Min and Teng) both speak good english and where very helpful. If you plan to stay a bit longer it could be an idea to ask for a "better price".

Room Tip: Depending on what you like it could be a good idea to choose a room close to the pool. Then you have...
