We came to Loyfa after spending 3 nights in an incredible resort in Samui so perhaps our expectations were a little higher. Rooms were ok- nothing special however with beautiful views. This side of the island has pretty average beaches not really suited to swimming etc so we ended up by the pool for most of the trip... but were never able to get a sunbed next to the pool as they were always full!! I had HUGE issues with the A/C and fan systems in the room- they both blew directly on my face and I was freezing and uncomfortable with either on, but uncomfortably hot with either off.

Breakfast was really average as you only get one option- cereal/ eggs/ pancakes/ fruit, but the food otherwise was actually really good and great value for money!

The staff on the whole were also OK, few were exceptionally friendly but others not so much.

I wouldn't even consider coming back here again.

After three weeks touring in Thailand, this "resort" was very disappointing... The lady at the reception was very unprofessional and even rude: we had to pay everything upfront (?), not the hospitality we were used to (coming from 3*, 4* and 5* resorts all over Thailand), the pool had yellowish water, the location was ok (beatiful view), only food (diner) was really excellent! Breakfast however was very poor.

Stayed here June 2011 and recently again in June 2012....and will be back (hopefully) in June 2013...
Everything about this place has already been said ! Only to say that they are all correct and that Loyfa has everything going for it. A great place to stay on Phangan, with terrific staff who smile endlessly and cannot do enough to help..(hello Sawana and Krit !)
Hope to see you again next year !

Room tip: The new "hotel" rooms are great value, but the other options nearer the beach (more expensive, of course !) are much classier !

This is a definitely the best hotel you could go for in Koh Phangan. The staff is really friendly and helpful. The hotel facilities are really good. We got the cheapest room which is in a building and it is a good value for money. Room was very clean, with AC and small fridge. The hotel has a private beach which is beautiful and the swimming is nice, clean and just like you see in the pictures. We dine at the hotel one night in a table close to the beach, and food and atmosphere is really great. They also have a bar at the beach, we unfortunately we didn't had time to go.
I would definitely stay there again and trust me, this is a right choice if you are planing to stay at the island.

Room tip: If you are in a tight budget the rooms at the building are a really good option. But if you have a bit more to spend stay at the bungalows with a sea view.. must be amazing!!

We chose Loyfa as it offered both a private romantic more luxurious feel as well as in a good location to get to other good beach's, town to shop and to the parties. Its beach is the best on the island. their food is great, service great, and the rooms all have great views and are clean and actually get cleaned daily. For the price it is your getting possibly the best value.

My favourite hotel in all of Thailand. I would go back in a heart beat. Great value and a great holiday!

Room tip: We had one with a beach view, right on the water, it was more secluded and gave us the feeling it was our own private beach! Loved our room!
