“Great place - good value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Rooms are nice and clean. Staff is friendly and helpful. Perfect location to the best beaches on the island. Also, tons of fresh, cheap local fruit and full meals right nearby.

Right next door is a very friendly travel agent to help book tours, shuttles to the airport, etc.

Great guest house in a perfect location. Rooms are spacious, beds are huge and comfortable, shower is powerful & the tv has good English movie channels.

Location is so good because its just round the corner from all the small bars, good if you want a quiet night as there is no loud bars outside the guest house. 5 min walk to the beach. The owner, tony, couldn't be more helpful if you need any local advice.

The rooms are spacious and have everything you need, safe, tv, wireless internet, fresh towels daily and bottled water, but it is a shame the bathroom does not have a more powerful shower and is not more modern. My room (room 3 i think) was noisey with the sound of elvis playing until the very early hours of the morning for a few nights from a bar on another road.Green island is however in a very good spot with bars/restaurants very close and an easy flat 4-5 minutes walk to the lovely beach. The bar down stairs is fairly expensive, another bar I visited on a regular basis which was very close, for just about the same price I got a large bottled beer instead of a small one! I would stay again but would shop around before booking, as I think for the money other guest houses offer a better service! i.e breakfast/airport transfers/more bottled water.

I stayed here for one night, and would not have liked to have spent my whole holiday here. It is pretty dreary. The rooms are in need of some modernisation and are quite depressing. My room had air-con that leaked constantly, a shower that broke and a lingering smell of drains. While the man who worked there was really nice, the woman was so cold and unwelcoming that it actually made me uncomfortable.
This place is tolerable for a night or two at a push, but there are much nicer and cheaper (I paid 1000 baht/ night) budget places about Karon and Phuket.

I cannot say one bad thing about our stay at the Green Island Guest House. I will start with the basics of feeling like your right at home- rooms are clean and cool, hot shower with high pressure, comfy bed, and the location is perfect. My first night there, I spent some time at the bar with the owner and his family and friends. The entire staff are the sweetest, and if you have the time be sure to get to know Tony the owner. He is very helpful if you need advice on things to do or places to eat. The travel agent, Tuk, is right next door, and she is amazing as well. Be sure to check out this hotel if you are on a budget or just want to save money in general. We saved so much, and our trip was awesome, because we got to spend the extra money on activities. There are places nearby to eat breakfast for less than 165 baht, if that is something you may be concerned with. The family at the Green Island Guest House will know you by name, and you won't find that anywhere else.. Trust me!

If you have ever heard stories or seen anything about Thailand on the television do not believe it! Go there and see it for yourself.
Some of the most beautiful people we have ever met.
This extends to the Green Island guest house, every one is there to help and cannot do enough for you. You are made to feel welcome as soon as you step out of the taxi.
Tony and his family were waiting for for us to arrive rather than go out to dinner.
He gave us directions to the nearest restaurant and made sure we settled into our room (after 20 hours of travelling we needed looking after and for Tony it was no trouble)
We will be going back as soon as we can and look forward to it.
If you love the beach it's only 5 min walk away.
