This hotel was definatly a exellent place to stay for the full moon party. It is about 5 minutes walk from the full moon party yet when you get back to your room its quite peacfull and feels miles away. We did have the odd drunk screming up and down the hallway at 3 in the morning lol but that was algood. Me and my girlfriend stayed hete for 5 nights over full moon march 2013. Our room was big and had everything we needed, fridge, TV with movie channels, air con. They dont clean your room daily, we stayed 5 nights and our room wasnt cleaned once wich was ok for us, just know what to expect. You can still go down to reception and get clean towels. The pool was nice. The beach right by the resort isnt the best for swiming tho. If you want to see a really nice beach in koh phangan rent a moterbike and go to haad salad, absolutly beutiful. Sunrise beach were the fullmoon party is looks beutiful but after seeing 100 people lined up pissing in it and all the trash that ends up in there I wouldent recomend swiming there even tho it looks so beutiful. The Staff at friendly resort were friendly enough, although we noticed that Thai locals are alot less friendly in haad rin than in every other part of Thailand we visited. A bunch of young westerners come and completely destroy the beutiful beach every fullmoon, and I noticed a lot of Europeans being rude and obnoxious to them also. So I dont blame them at all. Most of them were fine but we just noticed a couple of grumpy rude locals wich you wont find anywhere else in Thailand. Overall I would recommend staying here for the full moon party but if your looking for a peacefull beach holiday head to the bungalows at haad salad.
