“LOVED IT!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2011

Starlight had been recommended to us by friends who had stayed here before, both long term travellers & those just on a holiday. We originally were going to stay 5 nights but ended up staying 10. There were really only 2 staff we encountered much but they were really friendly at all times. Room was spacious with comfy beds & good balcony, we got a room on the upper level from which we could see the sea but not all of them afford that view. The beach is amazing, clean & long with lots of different restaurants/bungalows to choose from to eat & drink. There isn't too much else to do on Thong Nai Pan beach but for what we were looking for it was perfect - we spent a fantastic 10 days lounging around & relaxing. The pool is really good & right beside the beach & they provide beach towels for guests. Only negative would be a occasional smell coming from the bathroom but after speaking to other people who were staying there it wasn't just our room!! Boat trips to other beaches can be arranged easily & they also can arrange taxi boats to Haad Rin for moon parties with last boat coming back at 6am if you're looking to party without having to stay there.

Highly recommended & I wouldn't take any notice of people saying it's overpriced, for what you get compared to Australia/NZ it's a bargain & a little slice of paradise!

Given the price, my expectations, I admit, were high. I was expecting something that sparkled a little bit. Undortunately our room was dingy with a damp odour. The tv had only two  English language channels. They are probably the worst I've ever seen (diva and starworld) - so don't count on either for a rainy day. The pool is a good size and reasonably deep. There's a shop which is useful but no restaurant, which isn't a problem.  It's all ok, but really very over priced (£50 a night for twin double around the full moon party). I'm disappointed.

We had a great time at Starlight in Thong Nai Pan Yai - which is the more spacious beach than the neighbour beach of Noi - and we stayed there 4 nights at the end of February. It was a nice Hotel (our room was in the stone building on the upper floor) with a pretty kind of sea view - but very good price! The room was new and comfortable, although it seemed that they have not finished the interior already, like furnitures (there were no chairs or desks... maybe therefore it was such a good price). The really best thing was the wonderful pool with view to the sea and the quiet ambiance in the hotel (friendly staff). As there is no restaurant in the hotel, it is not noisy in the evening. Internet, good restaurants, good bars to hang out and supermarket nearby at the beach. Do not be afraid of the overland road to the village from the ferry pier (Thong Sala) passing the road to half moon festival. It is worth to go to the place, especially the nice beach, which is not so crowded and good to swim all day long. At nights there were good possibilities to have a drink at one of the friendly beach bars. We really enjoyed our stay!
