What a great place to stay. Bungalow on the banks of Mekong. All very clean, hot water,shower curtain, plumbing that all worked, breakfast at restaurant opposite included, mosquito nets, screens on windows, bike hire, laundry. They have it all covered. Friendly staff too as well as bus tickets. Only down thing- roosters are plenty & they crow pretty early, also boat traffic on river can start early but there aren't enough boats to be a bother (it is life on the river)

Room Tip: Riverside bungalows if possible

We stayed at Pans as part of a 3day tour with Green Discovery, so I have no idea what the price was so this review is based on my guess of the worth.

I was really pleasantly surprised with our bungalow.... All bungalows have a chair and hammock on their own veranda, and although we didn't have a river view, this was fine for us... we looked out onto a little narrow garden with banana trees and we spent most the time out and about on Don Khon and Don Det anyway.

The room was spotless and felt like it had been relatively recently decorated. Bathroom very clean, shower worked fine, aircon and fan worked ok and we had a mosquito net too which we appreciated.

We ate dinner there and food was tasty... But you don't get the riverside atmosphere at the restaurant. Interesting enough the identical menu features at another restaurant bar further down the lane which we popped to later for a beer with a view.

There is no better way to relax then kicking back a couple of drinks on the patio in front of your room and watching the Makong go by.

The rooms are spacious, the AC works well, the restaurant does a good breakfast, they have laundry, and book transportation that leaves from right in front of your room. They clean the room every day and the hotel is located in the perfect spot on Don Khone. You can grab a bike for a dollar and head to the waterfall or cross the bridge and check out Don Dhet. It is family run and everyone there does a great job to make sure your enjoying your stay.

The only downfall would be it is a little expensive, but check on Agoda for some discounted rooms. It also helps you save your cash (through Agoda), which is important because there are no ATM's on the island.

Came into 4k Islands during a horrible storm - boat man refused to take us to Don Khone and couldn't get hold of Mr Pan on the phone (I needed to add a + to the number given when using a mobile) so had to stay on Don Det for 1 night. However picked us up the next day by boat for free and did not charge us a cancellation fee (stayed for 3 nights as had already paid for 3) after a bit of negotiation. Bungalow was $30 which I felt was a bit pricy for what it was although bungalow spotlessly clean - however when the excellent included breakfast was factored into the cost it worked out ok. Don Khone felt a bit isolated as it was a long ride/boat trip to Don Det and there was a fee for using the bridge, very quiet at night and would stay in Don Det next time. Management friendly and helpful and food at the restaurant excellent.

We had a nice AC bungalow overlooking the Mekong. From our terrace we watched some beautifull sunsets and in the morning the fisherman left in their little boats right in front of us.There is no wifi in the room, but the restaurant has wifi, that works most of the time. Compared to the (too) commercial Don Det the isle of Don Kkone is much more quiet, traditional, relaxing and enjoyable. The village-life is all around you. The breakfast and food in the restaurant is good, although there are restaurants in the small village that are more special. For Laotion standards the rooms are a little overpriced.
