“Good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

Budget accommodation, with facilities in excess of the nightly rate.. Ok, so the bathroom is far from the best, but daily clean bedding and towels, and 2 mins walk from the main street Ask for a room overlooking the pool, with air con, and you wont complain.

Room Tip: Overlooking pool, with air con

We took this hotel adviced by the Lonely Planet book. Advice is not worth the paper. Sheets on the bed were very dirty. Bathroom was very dirty and fall almost apart. Not worth the money at all. Really terribible Never again.

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.
