“Perfect location, clean rooms was glad I stayed here for full moon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012 via mobile

From what we could see they owned various types of accomodation: beach bungalows, standard apt rooms, superior and I think basic as well. We stayed in the standard room for 5 nights costing approx €40/£33 a night. It's so expensive but everywhere is for full moon.
Was delighted how close a walk to sunrise full moon beach (quick 5mins) and to beach (2min) although the sunset beach is only ok, bit of debris.
Our room had 2 beds (single&double), tv, fridge and nice sized balcony. Was beautifully clean and definitely a good find! Room was perfect and big!
Minimart outside is not the cheapest but there is a 7/11 in the way to the haad rin beach (only 1 real one in this area!).
No reception area here so don't be expecting a receipt when you leave.
Also a good tip if going for full moon, arrive a few days before as parties always going on. The days after are like a ghost town with not much to do.
They kindly gave us free late check out at lunchtime as our boat was not until 2pm the day we left.
Also 5 nights is more than enough, without a bike there's not much else to see walking.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2012

We booked a room with 2 beds from a agency in Bangkok. She called and confirmed everything in front of us, and gave us a receipt.
One day later we got there, and as we arrived, no one bothered to get up to come to the reception. So a old lady came and helped us. She looked at the receipt and gave us a key and showed us to our room. ONE BED. We asked for 2 bed room, but they said they had no room with 2 beds. There was hair on the floor, stains on the toilet, sand on the floor and dirty sheets. So not so clean.

On the evening and the day after we saw a lot of rooms had 2 beds in them, so we asked again. Then they said we didn't pay enough for 2 beds. And we saw their price list. We had paid more then what a 2 bed room costs, 200 baht more, so we should have gotten one. But no, they refused to. So we wanted our money back for the second night, but they refused to give us back the money. She was even to lazy to come and talk to us. She stood on a balcony and talked. And no, we were not unfriendly.

The beach in front of the hotel is not good. No good for swimming, just for walking on. Have to pay for the internet, and there are so many hotels in Hada Rin that have free wifi that are cheaper and better.
