“Amazing Location”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

We had a lovely stay at Cookies; the room was beautiful, the staff were very friendly, the food was great and the location was amazing. We wished we had arranged to be picked up from the port because when our taxi dropped us off at the entrance we weren't very impressed, we felt like we were in the middle of nowhere but the staff quickly made us feel welcome and we soon realised we had found a beautiful part of the island. We were staying with a friend and they put our rooms next to each other with a connecting balcony which was really nice. We didn't hire a scooter so we basically spent 4 days on Salad Beach but there is loads to do, the pool was nice and on the beach there are plenty of restaurants with nightly barbeques and massage parlours. There was bugs everywhere and it was boiling but once you get into the feel of the resort it was our favourite on the island and we'd definitely recommend it and come back again. We even had a pet cat for 4 days!

Quick to respond and very helpful with any queries. Gave a discount for 3 nights without my even asking. The website says pay a deposit but then appears that you are paying the full amount. You aren't, they do it manually their end and only take the deposit.

Note that there is another Cookies on the island! More basic, no air con smaller rooms etc. Some reviews on the other Cookies I think are wrong because they have the pictures for this Cookies! So take care which one you book and make sure you are reading reviews for the right place.

Nice big room. If you don’t like caterpillars don’t stay here though as the bathroom has them on the floor. No shelves or drawers in the room. Just wardrobe with hanging space. Poor lighting. I say this everywhere because my husband found it difficult to shave!

Not a child safe place but they are honest about that. We have a four year old who isn’t very brave so doesn’t run and go off at a pace and risk falling down a load of rocky steps which are everywhere so wasn’t too bad for us at all. However, if you have a toddler who is gone when you turn your back for a second or really likes climbing don’t go here.

The pool is ok but often you won’t get a sun bed and the place was quiet. From about 3.30pm it gets quite cold ‘cos the pool and around goes into shade! (March/April). Get pool towels.

Yes there are dogs here, but they are over the island so if you don’t like dogs don’t go!

Very friendly staff, Aom the manager is very friendly and helpful.

The food is appalling! Don’t eat here! Breakfast was much the same as elsewhere buffet, but the staff are so slow and don’t show any initiative! They wait for plates to become empty before replenishing so you wait ages for stuff! Evening meal, they were quiet but so slow we waited about an hour for our food, pork and steak with different sauces but they came with the same. We found the Haad Salad Villa further down the beach was fantastic food. We were really annoyed that we didn’t try it the first or second day as we would have regularly eaten there!
Watch your washing. I gave it in a carrier bag and think it got weighed like that. However, we saw them weigh washing in one of the wicker baskets so you would be paying for the basket weight as well!

You need beach shoes for the beach or your feet will hurt! Walk a long way to get anywhere in the sea.

3% charge on credit card payments when at resort.

Room Tip: Room tip – if you are a family group the bungalow looking over the pool and beach has a good view. W...

We had a great stay at Cookies. The staff was always very pleasant and helpful. Salad beach is quiet and full of European families. It is a little bit of a journey to get to the other side of the island, but the staff were able to arrange transportation for us. We really enjoyed the pool. There are some great restaurants on Had Salad. The roads seemed really dangerous and we saw numerous tourists with bandages. For this reason we decided against renting a motorbike and stuck to taxis.

The actual hotel is nice and very good value for money. But it was very hot, with no sea breeze, which made the days quite uncomfortable.

We recently stayed at cookies salad for one week in an over sea view cottage. This was our third stay at cookies and it most certainly will not be our last!

Aom (the owner) is one of the main reasons for staying here, she is the most helpful woman I have ever met! She will somehow manage to get you everything you desire at any time day or night and all with a smile upon her face.

The bungalows are clean and fairly spacious and boast fantastic views of one of the most beautiful beaches on Koh Phangan. The restaurant serves good food and all of the staff are equally as helpful as their mentor, Aom.

Cookies is however placed on rather a steep hill, so be prepared for a climb, once you get there it will definitely be worth it!

If you are thinking of booking a holiday here stop thinking and do it NOW, you will not be disappointed!

Was at cookie's in feb 2012, and I keep the greatest memories of this hotel.
What made the whole difference is the hospitality of the employees.
Gest service is impeccable, We dealt with the hotel for everything: transfer service from the pier, scooter rental, taxi booking, laundry, tour booking and I can't find anything else to say except thatwe got an amazing service throughout our stay. All employees were always smiling and polite and would do the extra mile to make sure everything is right. We also had most of our meals at the hotel (4 days) and the price/quality of the food is just great + the restaurant has the best view over haad salad beach. It was my wife's first time in a hotel in thailand, (we are in our 30's)' and the room wasn't what she expected, but in retrospective, after our trip in Thailand, she was really happy with this hotel. The beach is ok, I thought there would have been less rocks under water and a finer sand and there is more hotels around the beach than I expected, but still a great spot. Overall, i had an amazing stay at cookie's and I highly recommend it for anyone passing by koh phangan.

Room Tip: We had room no. 5 and we were quite please with it. Good view on the Beach, relatively close to the...

We (a couple and 2 children aged 10 and 12) had a fantastic 10 days stay in a overseaview family cottage. The view really was stunning and the cottage nice and cozy built with at mix of wood and concrete. The size of the cottage was also fine and we really felt at home during our 10 days stay (had booked 6 days in advance but extended twice because we didn't want to leave!) The restaurant and its service is very good and the prices quite low. Happy, smiling and barefooted people, a mix off furniture incl. lounge-couches, relaxing music, a pooltable and at beautifull view over the bay made a perfect scene for our holiday. The owner Aom is very helpfull and smiling.The pool is simpel but fine for playing and 15 min daily swim. When cookies say "we are family" it makes really good sense. Only thing missing is the sunset. On the other hand, whats wrong with watching at beautifull sunrice from your own hammock on the terrace.
