Extremely cheap, however you certainly get what you pay for. Stayed in a basic room. Toilet and shower was deplorable. We felt dirtier after our shower than before.
We stayed for four nights and had already arranged a transfer to the hotel with their own transport. We spent the next 30 - 40 minutes rolling around the back of a pick up truck along with cases of beer and the hotels daily shopping. If you are familiar with the Island then you will know that most of this journey is on dirt track roads. We were filthy by the time we arrived at the hotel.
The staff were very dismissive. Arriving at the restaurant, we were ignored until approaching them at the desk. If they weren't ignoring us then they were pre occupied with children.
The food was just ok, not very authentic as they describe on their website. I got mayo as dip for a thai starter. One of only 4 Thai starters on the menu.
Canoes are provided however they were leaking and only one paddle for two canoes.
If you come here for the food then I would not only avoid this hotel but avoid this whole resort. If you have already booked, the only thing worth doing is easing the pain by spending your nights in YAI bar. Lovely staff and owner and great fire show.
Thong Nai Pan itself is extremely expensive. If you are visiting the island for the first time I would suggest you stay in the south.
