This has to be the friendliest place in Thailand, and by far the best place we have stayed. It is a family run hotel that makes you feel like one of the family as soon as you arrive. We booked 3 nights and stayed a week, we would have stayed even longer if we could! Location is perfect, 15 minutes... More

I basically liked this place, it was situated in a nice environment and the staff was also very nice, especially Bobo (she is crazy..in a good way). There are many shops, supermarkets and restaurants around. However, when you are looking forward to swim in the sea and chill on a beautiful beach-this is not the right place. Whole beach was...

Randomly found this place and can not recommend it highly enough.. Feels like your staying with family. Great atmosphere in the bar and around the pool. Rooms are standard beach bungalows cleaned daily. It is the perfect place to stay when in ko phangan. Bo bo and Baby are the perfect hosts.

If you're looking for 5* luxury then this isn't the place for you! The room is very basic with a shower which barely produced more than a dribble and a shower head which didn't stay on the wall. The TV had no aerial and the safe didn't lock. You may be thinking why have I given 4* then, here is... More

We stayed at First Villa in October 2015. The staff were amazing and very accommodating. Located on the beach front its the perfect relaxing place to stay. I highly recommend this hotel if you want to stay away from the full moon party. The full moon party is held 20mins away by taxi. (which cost 5euros) The restaurant in the... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights and we really enjoyed it. First Villa is a family owned and operated facility and they are all super friendly and very helpful. The food was really good and we basically ate curie all the time. If you order the curie, get it with the roti, its amazing! Rooms were clean... More

Had a too-short stay at First Villa. It's run by a family led by the vivacious BeauBo (who is awesome!) The family thing makes it feel a bit Fawlty Towers at times, but it's definitely a fun place to be. Room was very cute, and pool nice and big with lots of loungers. Location is great, easy to pop down... More

We stayed here for 3 nights for the full moon party, and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The staff are so friendly, and the manager Bobo was amazing, made the stay enjoyable by being so helpful and encouraging everyone to meet each other. The place had a great vibe before the big party and the staff... More

Stayed here for 4nights in a basic bungalow. It was lovely to have our own room after staying in dorms! Rooms were quaint. Had a fridge, TV (with fox movies on in English!) and a safe. Rooms were cleaned daily with new sheets and towels. The setting was beautiful with the beach one way and swimming pool the other way.... More
