We (myself and three buddies, all twenty-something males) stayed here for five nights during the July Full Moon Party. We had a "Garden View Bungalow" or something like that. We had literally a perfect experience here. The location was unbelievable for Full Moon (right on the famous Haad Rin party beach, but slightly further down from the bigger dance parties, so felt more secure, little less noise when you're trying to pass out at 8am) - everything in Haad Rin is walking distance. The resort itself was also awesome - very clean, the rooms were great (not just for the price), grounds well maintained, awesome pool, and the food at the resort's restaurant was decent as well. Each bungalow has a patio which was great for hanging out on and pre-gaming before going out for the night.
That said, although everything else was near perfect, what really made our stay was the staff at Palita, and particularly the manager Arh (sp?). From the first night we arrived, he (and the other staff too!) was around attending to anything and everything we needed. He planned a boat tour for us and some other friends staying on the island (if you do this ask for Captain John, he is hilarious), put together a special fresh seafood lobster/prawn/fish dinner and went to the pier himself to pick out the food, gave us rides wherever we needed (including to pick up friends staying across the island at another resort), took us to the clinic when one of our friends broke her foot, and just generally went above and beyond to make sure we had fun, partied hard, never had to worry about anything, and stayed safe. I would HIGHLY recommend staying here for Full Moon (or for any other visit to Koh Phangan) - seriously couldn't have been better.
