We stayed at Chills early October 2012. We got picked up from the ferry (no additional charge) by Johnny, who immediately started pointing out local hotspots on the way to the resort. Whether you want to visit a good Thai-/seafood place to eat, rent a motorbike, book a daytrip, hail a cab, go to a party, he's your go-to guy. We rented a 1 room bungalow with adjoining bathroom, which was great, with a really nice ocean (and sunset!) view. Chills resort is a small place right on the beach with a very personal feel to it. The staff makes you feel right at home. And then there's the food. It doesn't really matter what you order (curry, seafood, western food), it all tastes wonderful. The beach in front of the resort is a little rocky, but the rockpool and the reef totally make up for it. If you want sandy beaches, hire a motorbike and head north for a bit. Make sure to visit the jam (at a beach bar closeby) on saturdays for some live music!
I'd recommend this place to anyone who isn't just on Koh Phangan for the full moon party and is looking for a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere - for a very reasonable price!
