“HORRIBLE dirty and unfriendly”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013 via mobile

The location is great but AVOID this place. It is dirty, unfriendly and not cheaper than many other places around. Chaloklum is a geat port, the atmosphere is much less touristic than the rest of ko phangan, still you absolutely need to find somewhere else to stay. Try anything, it can't be worth.
They do not even provide mosquito nets where as the place is full of mosquitos and dingue.

The Place and the location is verry good. It is a little bit far away from the city chaloklum but it is directly at the beach.
The bungalows are verry dirty and the should been renewed. The stuff are unfriendly and i saw that they did not cleaned tbe room when new guests arrieved. They tried to get more money as it should cost if you like to pay.
Sorry but all in one its verry bad!
I will never stay there.

Firstly, the beach and the sea here at Chalok Lum are absolutely gorgeous. Crystal clear water with that lovely pale blue colour. Great for swimming. The sand is so fine and white.

North Beach resort is a very relaxed place where you’re able to just relax and get on with it with no fuss from the staff. The huts are basic and the bathroom is al fresco with cold shower. But this is not a problem and in many ways is better than an indoor bathroom: cooler, lighter etc. They’re very good value for 400baht per night. And you don’t have to commit to a long stay, just pay for each night in advance each day.
Each hut has a deck area with a couple of chairs and a hammock. They all face the beach and the ocean, and as this beach is on the north-western part of the island you get to see the sun setting over the island every night.

The restaurant and bar area has a lovely setting facing the beach and sea. Food and drink prices are reasonable, about the same as pretty much everywhere else on Chalok Lum, but like with all Thai islands the prices are double those of the mainland and don’t expect them to be great. Perfectly acceptable though. I would advise paying settling your bill each time you eat as we there were a couple of times when I was being over-charged and had to get the menu out to show them the right price. The staff generally seem like they can't be bothered and rarely smile but this I've found this common throughout Thailand so don't take it personally.
I really recommend staying here. My girlfriend and I stayed for a week and wished we had stayed longer. Will definitely return.
