“Basic but oh so good!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for three nights totally based on recommendations from trip advisor as we changed plans and decided to have a look at koh phangan before moving on to ko tao.
So glad we took the good advice! This place is very reasonably priced, yes it is fairly basic but the rooms are tidy and cleaned each day, the rooms are also well kitted out, with the exception of an in room safe.
The facilities are lovely, the beach is great, some people may moan its shallow a long way out but it's on a reef so it's not their fault plus it was great to paddle about in!
Breakfast was nice, quick and good set choices (ours was included in price) but the highlight for me was the coconut shake 50bht and worth double that - amazing!!!!!
It's also worth walking or getting a taxi (80bht) into Tongsala one evening to go round the street market for local foods - lovely and a really nice vibe in the town. We didn't go to any of the local bars etc so can't say anything about those but the street food was awesome and some nice local shops too so you can pick up a bargain - remember to haggle!

The hotel sorted out transfers, taxis, ferry tickets etc and it was brilliant, the staff were awesome and made this extra special, even waving goodbye when we left up the drive!

Oh and before I forget, one evening, make sure your prepped with a cocktail sat on the beach to watch the most amazing sunset over and amazing island, you won't regret it!

It s second time that i come back in this resort, suggested by a friend.
The front beach is one of the best near the town, the food is excellent and rooms are cute. They can prepare very good strawberry smootie. Just a pity that they increased prices from last year.

This place was perfect. Its not 5 star but for the price its perfect. The breakfast made my day and never got boring. Yes its basic but its clean and well run. Would return anytime. Perfect place for families or those wanting a quiet time but near enough to the action to not bother you.

Spend 8days at Sea Scene, wish we could have stayed longer! The beach right at our doorsteps, the food to die for(only if you enjoy authentic thai food). Very laid back, totally relaxing, nothing to worry sort of place. Perfect sunsets. Thank you Mr Rop and the 5ladies in the kitchen :))) The 5 of us are planning our next trip and we hope to visit you guys in the near future :)))

We really liked our stay at sea scene. Bungalows are clean and well designed, but the real asset of the resort is its direct access to a very nice beach and the spacious facilities with lots of room to play and hang out. The restaurant has a play corner for kids and on request the owner also provides play buckets and shovels for the kids to play in the sand. As we did not want to go by scooter being a family of four, we found it difficult to get around the island. The shared taxis only drove by very occasionally so we ended up walking to Tongsala along the road several times. The staff is friendly but a little bit reserved.

I stayed at Sea Scene in a sea view bungalow during NYE and thoroughly enjoyed it. Only 10 minutes (50 baht on a bike or 100 baht on a tuk tuk) to Thong Sala, where there was a great food market, some shops and a couple of bars or 40 minutes (200 baht by tuk tuk) to Haad Rin, where the full moon party is.

I love the simplicity of this resort – nice clean rooms with plenty of space. There is a cute private beach with a couple of chairs available and nice, reasonably priced food in the restaurant. A husband and wife duo own it so it’s very much a family business.

The only thing I would say is I couldn’t change the pressure or temperature on the shower (it was warm) but that was no big deal.

Highly recommended for reasonably priced accommodation.

The resort is well kept and clean. The beach is very small and during high tide it is difficult to find aplace to relax. We had a garden view bungalow but we could see the sea. Bungalows are clean with a fridge. Breakfast is simple but good. If you want to find another beach you have to rent a scooter for 200 bath. Food from the little restaurant is delicious and cheap. Beautiful sunset.
