One of the worst places i Have been during my stay in Thailand. This place is not a resort but a place where they take your money by smiling to your face. The staff is really terrible, like some local people with no english but thinking that they are so smart and the foreigners are so stupid. They have a... More

Myself and my husband stayed here for our honeymoon. It was the end of a 3 week stay around Thailand, money was running low so we stayed here for the last 4 nights. Luckily we got a room on the end which meant sea views. Strangely there's a side window that backs onto your neighbours side window so this can... More

We booked this place and were planning to stay there. We put down a deposit for the room as requested since we wouldn't be there for another two days. Once we got there we requested to see the room we would be staying in so we could check it out. All the signs of bedbugs were in the mattress seams... More

DON'T GO. Do not encourage rude thai people to continue this attitude. The women who run this place are just R-U-D-E. They scam you, they want money from you and then they shout at you, they always want money in advance and they really make you feel like the worst bug. They never wan to clean your room, they say...

I later found out that we were charged three times the going rate. The people there are dishonest and unfriendly. The bedding was dirty and we were bitten by bedbugs. We left first thing the next morning. We then spent a week at Montalay resort at Tanote bay which was great.

We stayed at the Big Fish for 1 day. Really felt so ripped off price wise. We were charged 1800 bat. We were tired after our jouney and just needed a good room for the night. Staff rude and unhelpful. There was no bedding, just a sheet and what looked like a single bed duvet cover. The bathroom was disgusting... More

We stayed at the Big Fish in May and didn't have any of the problems mentioned in the other reviews, apart from not having our room serviced, which for our short stay didn't really worry us. We were only paying 500 Baht a night, for three nights, and in that time I didn't have any money stolen from their Safe... More

Big Fish resort was recommended to us by the famous big bubble diving resort. While the resort seems to have acceptable bungalows with sea view, it turned out to be a nightmare. to keep it short: - the owners are thieves. we made the same mistake as some of the other users of this board, we handed our money to...
