“Good place”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We stayed here for four nights in February 2014 in a wooden hut set back from the beach.
The huts are small, but have a balcony area with chairs and hammock. The beds pretty hard but have a nice bathroom. The rooms are lovely and cool on an evening.
At the time of visiting they didn't have a thai cook so I cannot comment on the food. It was the start of the holiday so didn't fancy eating Italian.
Ko Kradan is a stunning island! Some of the nicest beaches with turquoise waters which are great to swim in. For this reason it is expensive in comparison to other islands. Don't go here if you're on a budget.

Small but adequate huts with decent mozzie nets and good bathrooms. Not the most extensive Thai menu and the pad Thai wasn't very nice. Very good Italian food! Location excellent. Ko Kradan is truly gorgeous. Nice n quiet at night. Bit pricey for a hut, but think that's the case on ko Kradan.

We didn't stay here but had lunch here one day as we fancied a break from Thai food. We ordered a pizza and weren't really expecting much due to our remote location but we were pleasantly surprised. The pizza was fab! Really one of the best we've had in Asia and fairly close to what we've had in Italy. We had the spicy salami to share for just over 300 baht and would definitely recommend it.

This is the best of a pretty sorry bunch of restaurants on Ko Kradan (excepting, possibly, the very upmarket resort's restaurant, which we did not try). The co-owner, Mario, is an affable and laid-back guy. He knows he is not running a 5 star place, and makes no bones about it, which I respect. The service is lackadaisical, and the Italian food would be laughable in any major Western city, but you're on a tiny island in the middle of the Andaman! I always try to eat Thai in Thailand, but the choices on Kradan were so abysmal, we kept returning here
Just show up, lower your expectations, order a Chang, or five, take in the great view, and everything will be fine.

Used sanitary pads in the shower. Dirty sheets. The most uncomfortable mattress I have ever slept on. Room service (if you want to call it SERVICE) only on demand (the used sanitary pad was not removed even after the so-called cleaning service). Incompetent and unmotivated staff - Completely ignorant owners. Many insects. Overpriced food. It can be resumed in one word - FILTHY!!! We left prematurely... Do yourself a favour and just do not stay there!!!

We stayed there in April, one of the hottest month of the year. The lack of air condition was not a problem. The cabin was cooled by sea breeze and the ocean was 50 meters away.

The staff was friendly and one of the owners Luigi lived on the site. Luigi was super friendly , a great host and assured that the service was professional.

The property has two types of cabins. thatched huts on the left and newer wood cabins set 50 meters back. This may account for the differing reviews. If you stay in the newer wood cabins you will be very comfortable.

The property is family friendly and is best for tourists who are looking for a quiet time away.

Me and my partner stayed in a bungalow here in January. Koh Kradan is an amazing island - by far the best island I've been to in Thailand, and I've been to many! But that is where it stops.

DO NOT STAY HERE! It is infested with cockroaches. We bought some food back to our room (leftovers from dinner) and woke up to a scuttling noise. We turned on the lights to find our room infested with cockroaches - all over our floor, belongings and food. It was absolutely disgusting.

As the owners don't go to sleep until late as they're up partying and drinking with their music up loud, we went over to the owners and told them the situation. They blamed it on the island (this is so not true as I stayed at many island bungalows on my trip and no cockroaches at all) it is because in between each row of bungalows there are these man holes that have not been fully concreted so the cockroaches crawl through the gaps! Also it doesn't help that the floor boards have huge gaping gaps which the cockroaches then crawl up through into your room!!! The owners simply laughed and gave us some cockroach spray. Which did not help as there were just too many!

The owners are Italian so you'd think they'd be more caring, but they're not!! They're the opposite. After laying down towels and clothing over the gaps in the floor and having a very restless sleep, we checked out the next morning. To our surprise, the owner charged us a cancellation fee which is absolutely disgusting as we were checking out as their service and lack of looking after their bungalows was shocking!!!

We were talking to a few other families in the bungalows around us as they saw us spraying the man holes with the cockroach spray and then the armies of cockroaches. We later saw them checking out too.

One word, disgusting.
