I'm always a bit dubious about staying in hotels as they often let you down however Viva On The Beach was an exception. Upon arrival a very friendly manager (Fabio) showed me a number of rooms i could choose from and i picked a basic room but it had air con, fan, lovely large shower and toilet and a little kitchen - Perfect.
Located directly on the beach and in walking distance to everything in Chaloklum i did not have to hire a scooter. I met the owner too a big character named Eddie who made our stay a bit more special by giving us a Viva On The Beach cocktail for free! The barman was also very friendly and seemed to really care. All in all Viva On The Beach was excellent value for money and when i return (not if) to Koh Phangan i will stay there again.
