Worst night in many many years. Someone in a nearby resort has had a live band and a party going on all night and it is still going at 2 am. At 23.00 I tried to find a member of staff here to call them to get it to stop but there was no one around. As this is a tented camp which supposedly is quiet after 2200 this is not acceptable. In addition, not to find any staff or guards in the middle of the night is terrible. The tents are comfortable enough , the food is mediocre and it is a pain to drive here so do not bother. Our busy day tomorrow is completely ruined by the fact that we cannot get any sleep even with very good ear plugs!!

We booked a 2 night package including tours/activities. It starts with an early pickup from Bangkok by mini van, then once outside the city we transferred to a larger coach with more passengers and less comfort. Before reaching the camp you stop at the war graves and the Death Railway museum and the bridge over the River Kwai, this geographically makes sense but you feel a little as if you're rushed through the main reason for the trip. Then there is a stop for lunch at a roadside restaurant, this was disappointing and little did we realise we would revisit this den of mediocrity on the return journey to Bangkok. After lunch the larger group was split based on which resort you were staying at, we continued this time in the back of a pick-up truck which was fun, just before reaching the camp we stopped again at the Hellfire pass exhibition, this truly was a whistle stop and didn't give us enough time to fully explore or use the audio guide. I personally would have returned here later if it had been possible. Check in was a little chaotic as several guests were there together obviously. The camp is nicely laid out. The tents have flaps to the front and back, the back opens into a 3 sided shelter that makes up the bathroom area which is open to the environment. The actual living space has air-conditioning and mosquito flaps, it is a rural setting so we had ants in and around the bathroom which is to be expected, we did need mosquito spray and I suspect it would be worse during the rainy season. The food served was generally good, but it's limited choice would be tiring for more than a couple of meals. My biggest complaint was the package of tours that we had booked, if I did this again I would opt for an a la carte tour, largely my only full day consisted of a laboured tour of a Mon village which is an encampment serving as home to the imported workers from Burma, it was empty as all the workers are working. Then we went to the Lawa cave to observe the stalagmites and stalactites, interesting but if you've been in other caves this isn't a must do. We did skip a few activities, preferring instead to relax a little. The final morning is mainly killing time to ensure you are transported to the station in time to board the train crossing the wooden trestle bridge, this was anticlimactic. Prior to check out, I asked at the reception desk for more water, 3 bottles per night is the limit on drinking water, I was advised that I should buy water at the bar as I was checking out this day, given the cost of our 2 nights, it leaves a sour taste to penny pinch on a basic requirement like water. Overall the Hintok camp is in need of some maintenance and refurbishment, currently it appears as if it best days are behind it.

We had a lovely night here - I echo other reviews in that there isn’t loads to do (especially if you’ve visited Hellfire Pass etc on your way here) so 1 or 2 nights is likely enough. I do recommend a little bike ride around the local area though …… be sure to road test your bike first!!! I found out to my cost that they’re not all that well maintained!! Accommodation is lovely - definitely much more ‘glamping’ than ‘camping’ and the only way you’d really know you’re in a tent is the vinyl smell and the zips to get in and out!! Dinner is nice - outside affair in the central ‘campfire’ area. To be honest, the BBQ stuff is the weakest of the food but the accompaniments and the pad Thai are fantastic. Staff, as always, are very friendly and willing to help with anything.

We are a family of 5, 3 teenagers, spending two nights here following a 1 night stay at the Float House River Kwai (still losing my sea legs). I read many reviews before choosing this place, after Bangkok and before Phuket and am so glad I looked beyond some of the less positive reviews. I can only say that it is great value for exceptional location and views. We have two tents (carpeted, air con, attached lovely bathrooms), and have set tables outside for dinner. Maybe the food could be warmer but the Pad thai and salad are some of the best we’ve had anywhere- gorgeous! We’ve done the Treetops adventure- booked through the hotel, and every time we’ve been on a longboat on the river Kwai is a treat. It was well worthwhile/ my kids loved it - my arms will take a while to recover!

This camp is 4 hour-ish by car from Bangkok and worth the time. A very remote and quiet setting on the bank of the river kwai. Tents are airconned, compfy with hot water. Food is served at the local eatery and quite good. We stayed 4 days covering Anzac day, which the camp management can organise should you wish to partake. The setting here is total remoteness, quiet, relaxing and you can do as much or little as you like.

A very beautiful place out in the off-back-nature… Cool tents with all you need and the most perfect barbecue in the evening A special thanks to all the personal (staff and guides) for making this really special for our family. Our kids are 6 and 9 and can really remember all the historic things, bat cave - but especially swimming in the natural waterfall….

We loved our Delux Tent, which was immaculately clean and well provided for. A really fun experience, as was the buffet dinner by the campfire, although the Dolly Parton Country & Western music did seem a little surreal! The natural pool was very special, located by the river but the sun loungers were all very tired. The view from the bar to enjoy a really delicious cocktail will always stay with me. Absoloutely stunning to say the least. I was disappointed that the hotel did not offer a taxi to Hellfire Pass Interacive centre at a reasonable price or indeed a complimentary shuttle several times day. Its 4 km away, and you can not walk uphill that distance in the heat. I have given 4 stars for the accommodation and beautiful setting a lone. However, the Hintock River Camp museum was very poor and disappointing. Now we come to the massage which we booked as we arrived. The promotional photograph showed an outdoor area with beautiful views to the river. However our experience was somewhat different. My partner and I checked into the area for the massages, and there was already 2 other people waiting. We assumed they must have 2 massage areas but this was not the case. All 4 of us were in the same room which was grubby and unkempt. It felt like we were in some seedy Bankok back street massage parlour not that of a 4 star hotel. This needs to be massively improved and made more hygienic and preresentive of the on-site advertising promotions material.

We chose Hintok River Camp for the location right on the Kwai River and near the Saiyok falls. The camp is very well located right on the banks with a pier at the bottom next to an outdoor natural pool. This was a true glamping experience with a spacious bed and bath area fully equipped with fan, air-con, and hot water. The tents were clean and comfortable as were the beds and terrace area. A few drawbacks though - the campfire dinner and breakfast were alright but lacked variety and Hintok’s location is remote enough that even with a car we could not get away for meals. In addition without outside organized activities there really is not much to do. Luckily we were there for just the night.

After 3 weeks of exploring Southeast Asia, the 2 nights we spent here at Hickok River Camp was just what we needed. It was calm and peaceful and with a beautiful waterfall fed pool right on the river- we could not have asked for more. The tents were very comfortable with all amenities needed including plenty of hot water. Massages are offered at reasonable prices and the buffet dinner each night include some wonderful choices including on the spot made Pad Thai and bar-b-cue. Highly recommend!
