This hotel has so much potential - but unfortunately they need some major improvements - mostly with the attitude and service of their staff. The restaurant staff in particular were rude, and made us feel like we were an inconvenience to them - we ended up avoiding the restaurant on most occasions. We stayed in a garden villa - and...

We stayed here for 6 nights. Our cabin was really nice and located in the beautiful garden. We had a mosquito net over our bed which was absolutely a must. But for the extra bed for our son they didn't provide one. We put one up ourselves. As for the beach, it's absolutely beautiful but NOT PRIVATE. Very dissapointing. They... More

Our stay here was everything we dreamed of. We were a group of 21 celebrating my husbands 60 th Birthday. Great beach, great staff, great location. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate our every whim. The food was great at the Talay restaurant, the staff was helpful. Ellis and Pel great! Many good times were had with happy hour!...

Beautiful resort. Staff is fantastic. Funny, attentive polite. The white sand beach is beautiful. Clean, with some trees that cover some areas with great shade spots. Water is warm. Food is good and comes at a good deal. A must visit.

We stayed here for our last two nights in Thailand. The resort is beautiful and next to a private beach. Rooms were clean and the staff was friendly. It's a bit far from the main beaches. So if you're looking for a quiet area this is the place to be. Recommend it!

This year we thought we would return to Thailand, although for the last few years we have been staying in 5* luxury AI caribbean resorts so we had a little shock to start with ! On arrival we was a little disappointed that the hotel didn't really look like the pictures! We arrived early and was allocated a room before... More

Waking up with a stunning view on the Gulf of Thailand with Chaweng bathing in the morning sunlight and in the back the silhouette of Ko Phangan is simply breathtaking. Best way to spend your vacation

I stayed In a garden cottage for five nights and we were more than happy with our stay - I'd love to come back some day. Pool area was really nice and the restaurant was just excellent; god service and really good food. The beach was also nice, some stones at the bottom so bathing shoes helped, with a small... More

We had a Beachfront Villa which was large, well equiped, clean with a good size bathroom and great shower. Nice towels and no complaints about the room at all. A large patio and sunbeds looking out to the beach and sea idyllic. However there are things about this place that need looking at. Firstly reception, not friendly like other places... More

We stayed at Crystal Bay Yatch Club Beach Front Villa from 17-19 June. The room, though simple, was clean and spacious. And it came with a big refrigerator for us to stock up our food. It is all about the beach here. Soft powdery sand with shimmering crystal clear waters. It is a lovely place to chill and relax. Massage... More
