We had booked 5 rooms in at least 2 months in advance. Only to find 2 rooms were not available for the nights we booked! After a few calls to the agent, they finally gave one room. My friend ended up sharing a room with another friend! Not ideal especially after long journey, and long night ahead! The main doors... More

We spent 7 nights at this hotel and had a lovely time. Location: maybe the only downside, especially if you do not want to rent a car or motorbike, as it's relatively remote, with only some restaurants/ shops around. If you want anything more, you need to go to Haad Rin or the port (first must be around 7 km... More

Last year we stayed at a separate hotel and regularly came down to Milkybay for evening meals and cocktails in the afternoon and the staff were very warm welcoming. This year we returned to Koh Phangan and Milkybay was fully booked so we had to stay elsewhere. Again we went down for an evening meal and the service was shocking.... More

Do not book the standard bungalow here! We stayed for the full moon party weekend in June and would have left if anywhere else on the island had been available. The room is very small and not sealed to the outdoors at all, so it was crawling with lizards and insects. We asked for a mosquito net over the bed... More
