We arrived there and automatically looked for alternate accommodation which we found but at a high cost due to full moon.. It is dirty smelly and very run down.. Normally I can cope with the odd bad accommodation but this was horrible. Our bungalow was infested with ants, and the beds were not nice at all. If you don't mind... More

I stayed in this place during the May full moon party and it was terrible. The room felt more like a holding cell. It had this smell kind of like a mangrove swamp. The bedsheets were stained and still had fluro paint from the last person to stay there. There was also no real blankets or anything to actually sleep... More

My friend and I booked this place for the full moon party and my friend paid. It was quite costly for her because of the FM party. Our room had good aircon, the wifi mainly worked fine, with the occasional slow period. The pool area was lovely. Our room was nice but the smell from the bathroom was off putting.... More

Stayed here during the New Year's Eve full moon party for 5 nights and really enjoyed it! Whilst our bungalow could certainly have done with some re vamping - the shower was a wet room and quite dingy, the furniture was old and there was no safe or light 😂 - we saw other rooms which were slightly more expensive...

Rooms are basic and clean.. Perfect for people heading to full moon, we were here for NYE party and had an amazing time, staying 3 nights. Rooms come with beach towels, some noise in the early hours but is expected. All the staff are very friendly and the food decent and reasonably priced. Pool is clean and pool area nice... More

Arrived at friendly resort and spa and the staff were very welcoming. The hotel had a homely feel and the rooms were basic but a good size. We went to the full moon party and friendly is only a 5 minute walk from the had Rin beach. The hotel is great value. The food however was not very appetising luckily... More

My fiance and I ended up booking a room here last minute because our previously booked hostel ended up being far below our expectations and we were planning to share it with two friends, but we had gotten engaged a couple days earlier and were hoping for a nicer room with some privacy.
