“Very nice all round”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

Good location near beach. Mrs manee very nice manager, check in and breakfast area nice and clean. Villa lovely, really big bathroom and got one at far end, slightly bigger. Neutral and pleasant room. All the usually, good tv, safe, nice large bed. Breakfast quite small but nice, good Thai place over road that delivers. Nice for couples who want to chill out, don't tell the people with young children!
Pool clean and well maintained, some loungers for each villa.
One warning, mrs manees machine for payment didn't work on day we left so we had to dash to the ATM and pay by cash. A good choice!

Room Tip: Villas 118 and 119 more private as at end of pool. Smaller pool is shaded 24/7 so maybe that end bet...

We booked one night at the Pai Tan Villas and fled as soon as we could.

Upon arrival we were presented the room, which was reasonably sized, looked relatively clean and was surrounded by a nice but tiny garden.

Check-in was quick and the guy behind the counter was very friendly. So far, so good but until we wanted to have a cold beverage before we went to the beach. We were told that they didn't have anything as there was only breakfast. This was a bit of a downer as they claim in the brochure as well as on their website that they feature a restaurant and a bar.

So we went to the beach without our beverage. The beach is about 5 min walk, but you have to go through a pretty creepy back-alley. Once we arrived at the beach there was our second disappointment: the beach was deserted, not that clean and featured a lot of ruins of old restaurants and huts. Only cool thing on the beach were the hundreds of crabs running around near the shore. Luckily there was a trendy beachclub so we finally could get a refreshing drink.

After a reasonable but expensive dinner at another beachclub we went back to the hotel for the night. We had a nightcab at the pool (bought it at the local minimarket) and noticed how thightly cramped together all the bungalows were. There was virtually no privacy, luckily there weren't any other guest (at least that we saw). As we wanted to go to bed, the first thing we noticed was that the doors of our bungalow had a really flimsy lock. The second thing we noticed as we folded back the blanket on the bed were the mold specks on the sheets under the blanket.

As it was already 1:00 AM there was no-one around. We slept on the clean side of the bed and checked out as fast as we could the next morning. Check-out was relatively smooth but the price is way too high for what they offer. We didn't complain about any of the above as we just wanted to leave as fast as possible.

The only positive thing about this guesthouse (we wouldn't call this a hotel) is the friendliness of the staff.

I found this small complex of villas very relaxing with beautiful grounds. The rooms are very good size and bathrooms are spacious and moden. Mannee the owner goes out of her way to please her guests and arranges all your needs. My husband and I prefer this relaxing, peaceful place than Karon Beach. Will be back next year for sure.

Room Tip: all rooms are over looking the pool's

I stayed in this lovely Hotel just to relaxe and meet some of my Swiss freinds.
The owner was very nice and helpful. She remembered my name after the first talk and she organiesed always the best quality Tickets and Taxis, for the cheaper price, for us. The room was quite good but the Bathroom was just spectacular.

Thank you again for you hospitality.

We were lucky to have nine nights at this lovely hotel. We had a superior detached villa which opened on to the pool. There were six villas around our pool but it was never too busy and we often had the pool all to ourselves. The room and the bathroom were lovely, large, well designed with lovely little touches, We did have coffee making facilities but we did ask in advance for this. I think if you ask for something at this hotel they will make every effort to help.The gardens surrounding the villas are beautiful and well kept. Manee, the owner, is lovely and takes good care of her guests. We were especially lucky as we were treated to Tom Yang Goon soup and fish cooked in lemon, caught by her husband and cooked by Manee, it was gorgeous.
Bangtao beach is lovely, 8km long.There are a couple of busy areas but generally it is really easy to find a nice quiet part. I loved Pai Tan Villas and Bang Tao Beach and can't wait to go again.

The owner (Mrs.Manee) is very friendly, despite she is the only one who speaks (not much) English.

The rooms are nice and clean, excellent quality if you thing that the hotel is run by a private family.
The thing that we love this place is the private access to the pool directly from your room, and the garden is taken care very well.

Nice place with some cutie cats! We did enjoy our 2 days in Pai Tan Villas!
We would recommend this hotel to the family traveling with kids or small children
