Don't like to say it but there is nothing special about Twin Bay apart from the location, which is on the quietest part of the great beach at the top of the island. Rooms are a decent size but are worn now, and for the price I must admit we expected better.
Breakfast was OK, but left out, uncovered, in the mornings meant there were always lots of flies etc. Coffee was poor quality, eggs 5/10, and not a great array of fruit. In comparison to places we stayed in Koh Phangan (of course it's a different island but still), then Twin Bay is massively overpriced for what it is.
First room we had was a family one, which had a strong smell of damp. Indeed within 5 minutes of walking in a staff member came in to spray the whole place. After two nights we upgraded from standard to a bungalow 'on the beach' for our last night. Pretty much the same but bigger and about 5mtrs in front of the one we were in the previous night. Cost went from about 50euros to 100 and the front door didn't even close properly (gap at the bottom) meaning it was all the easier for unwelcome guest to enter. Appreciate there's wildlife around, but gaps in the doors of 100euro bungalows doesn't help the situation.
The restaurant was just about OK - very bland in comparison to what we enjoyed during the rest of our month in Thailand. The 'bbq' was about the same standard - served up very dry squid and you just felt there was no no real inspiration or 'love' put into what was cooked up. Although the staff themselves were pretty friendly.
The Bar had a sign saying 'always time for a drink' in the 3 days we were there they ran out of Singha twice and it was closed at 10.30pm on the Friday and Saturday night we were there (first week December). Overall, it's a 5/10 place but I've given it two out of five because for the place needs to do much much better.
