Excellent Wifi. Large room, high ceiling, Pleasant and helpful staff. Nice small pool to cool off in. TV signal didn't work when I arrived, nor when I left after six days. Glad I brought my Chromecast, since nothing happens in the area at night. Hotel is right on the beach, but on a high concrete terrace, with no stairs down.... More

The rooms in this hotel are very nice - very tastefully decorated, very clean, everything works. Unfortunately, I probably got the most inexpensive room, which is right on the street - so it was quite noisy. Most other rooms seemed to have nice views of the courtyard and many had views of the sea. The hotel sits right on the... More

This place was amazing, and that was primarily the staff that made it so. The manager/employee who was always there and and beyond helpful and welcoming was a young woman who said her name was Pop. I hope i am getting that right! She was probably one of our favorite people we met on our trip. The room was spacious,... More

Wonderful position right facing the beach and sea. The rooms would have been beautiful a couple of years ago and still could be, in need of a little thought, tender loving care and attention to detail. Fans so noisy, air conditioning not working properly in need of attention. Curtains had seen better days and were ready to be replaced.

We found this hidden gem after a recommendation from a local. Staff here were a husband and wife, very friendly and nice to us. Room was large and spacious. There was a small pool and a view of the beach which had a little sand to make your own private beach.

This is our second stay at this hotel which our party took over booking all the rooms. We stayed in one of the front rooms which has a wonderful view across the bay.

We had one night in Koh Phangan and wanted something a bit nicer than usual, and we found this place, very clean and modern, with a Spa in the bedroom, epic and perfect for us with a good price also. Just down the road we also found the best pizza place ever. We will definitely be returning to this hotel,... More
