“Loved this place!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Gorgeous little bungalow with a snug terrace area outside them , overlooks a secret little paradise :)
My boyfriend and I loved it here! Everyone makes you feel so at home!
The friendliest staff!! And so helpful!
Food in restaurant is great and not too overpriced!! Cocktails are nice and strong!! Beach is nice place to watch sunsets! Rent a bike from reception (4€ a day) and visit all the beaches around! That's how we found our next accommodation. Book online !
We loved this place so much. We stayed in the standard bungalow and found it perfect!
Highly recommended!

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

This is our second year coming to b52. The rooms are clean, nice decor, and the staff is very helpful. The beach isn't the best but we enjoy it. Pool is clean with swim up bar . The manager Gail wants her quests to be happy and it shows. B52 has all price range bungalows. We get the basic and we are just fine. We will for sure come back next year.

Room Tip: If you want the best room ask for beach front..romantic. You can sit right in front of the beach. Be...

I stayed at this resort with 3 friends for 2 nights in Feb 2013. Myself and my friend had a beach villa and it was gorgeous and my brother and his friend had a standard twin which was equally lovely just a lot smaller but you don't need a big room as you're not in it much.

We got a taxi to the resort from the ferry port, all the taxis knew our hotel and told us which taxi to get into and we paid 100 bhat each. The reception greeted us warmly and our room was all ready and made up for us, the bar/pool boys took our luggage into it for us. All the staff were very friendly throughout our 2 night stay.

The pool is lovely as is the amazing beach that the hotel is situated on. The hotel is so quiet and peaceful and it felt like there was hardly anyone else around apart from us. The weather was a bit shaky, mornings are quite dull in Koh Phangan it seems (they were whilst we were there) but from 12pm it brightens up.

Kevin the pool/bar boy from South Africa was awesome and chatted to us all day and played our ipod for us around the pool whenever we wanted. The bar food at the B52 is lovely but i was really disappointed in the bbq that they put on every few evenings. My brother lives in Koh Tao and he said that it was 3 times the price of what he usually pays on his island and it was of really bad quality in comparison so i wouldn't recommend having this, but the club sandwiches, burgers and breakfasts were lovely and reasonably priced.

This hotel is in the middle of nowhere so you can't really walk out and find lots of restaurants. You'll need to book taxis or walk out and try to flag one down on the main road. We went to the half moon party and managed to get a taxi easily there and back.

My only criticism of this hotel is the decor around the pool/beach is in need of a little TLC. The wooden flooring around the pool needs repairing here and there as you could easily hurt yourself on it, i would also say the beach bar needs a paint. But other than that it is a fantastic resort that i would recommend to a friend and I would return and stay there again.

Room Tip: Beach Villas are the way forward! Lovely.

Our first stop, on our 2 week island hopping trip, was B52 Koh Phangan. Incredibly close to Thong Sala pier, so do not be fooled into paying 200THB for a taxi, instead inform your hotel at what time you will be arriving so that they send someone to collect you.

The resort is at a wonderful location, not over crowed like haadrin, but close enough to it as well in case you want to party. My boyfriend and I stayed in the deluxe room, which is cosy, beautiful and comfortable. You get a gorgeous bathroom too and your own deck with chairs to sit out at any time. The staff is absolutely wonderful, extremely polite and helpful with whatever we needed. The pool is clean and great to relax by while you stare out at the beach. I asked for a Thai massage by the pool (late afternoon) and it has been one of the most relaxing ones I have had in a while. The food was also surprisingly very good, so eat at least one meal there. The resort is very close to the night market in thong sala where you MUST go and have paad thai!

Definitely rent a moped from your hotel, pick up a map and drive around Thong sala and beyond. We had a wonderful time at this resort, especially laying by the beach and staring at the starry sky on cloudless nights. Don't forget to check out Haad rin, it's a 10-15min taxi ride and should cost you about 200THB one way, Cactus bar is where it's usually at, unless you are specifically going for one of the many parties the island has.

Would definitely come back!
