Stayed 5 nights in the basic fan bungalow, slept well every night. Amazing location right on the beach. The staff were very helpful and you could organise just about anything directly through them. Will definately return one day.

Koh Phangan was the first stop for myself and four mates on our holiday to Thailand. Although we stayed next door to PBR, our first day there found ourselves at there beautiful restaurant for lunch overlooking the beach. We were overwhelmed with how nice, helpful and fun the staff were, as well as how good the food was, we found ourselves back in the same spot for breakfast, lunch and dinner (and drinks in between).

Unfortunately as I said, we didn't actually stay at PBR but looking back on our time there it is the most fond memory of the island and it can easily be attributed solely to the staff. They made us feel welcome having drinks with us each afternoon, took us out and showed us around at muay thai, and put on a BBQ for us before heading off to the half-moon party. These moments are just a few that stood out and that set this place apart from anywhere else we 'stayed' on our entire holiday.

Although it isn't in the centre of the wild partying of Hat Rin, it was very easy to get there from PBR by taxi and was a much nicer place to rest our aching heads the next morning.

Next time I make it back over to Thailand, this is one place that I will not even consider looking elsewhere for accommodation. That is unless the word has rightly spread and there isn't a bed for me.

We had a great time at Phangan Beach Resort. It fronts on to the best beach on the entire island and has a sweet as bar and restaurant. The people are so friendly and the rooms are gorgeous.

We first visited Phangan Beach Resort in 2008 over the Full Moon Party in one of the basic bungalows. We came again in June 2010, because as we were traveling India, we thought we were so close to PBR, we just had to come for another visit. It will always be remembered as one of the best weeks of our lives for a few reasons...

The STAFF are the friendliest and most caring people we came across on our travels. They were very accommodating, understanding and looked after us like family on both of our stays there. They always 110% looked out for us and helped us with anything.
The Lodgings themselves are incredible and are definitely some of the best value for money on the island, if not Thailand itself. We stayed in the fan rooms, which as the most basic are still immaculate and the bathroom is the best bathroom ever.
The LOCATION is spot on. It's not too close to Haad Rin so the crazy people don't come so close to the hotel, but you are close enough to get a quick taxi there no fuss. It is super close to the wicked jungle areas within the island etc.
The FOOD AND DRINK. Wow the meals are fricken amazing too, great menu, lovely service, and the drink selection is ace, and the beach bar is wicked.
The PARTIES are AMAZING. This hotel sure know how to throw a damn GOOD party. But if you need a night off then its perfect still, because the bungalows offer peace and quiet from the action if you're not feeling so up to it.

We went back to this hotel the next year as we fell so in love with the hotel and the people who work and lived here. We have stayed in hundreds of hotels and hostels ,and nothing compares to this place. I've definitely had some of the most memorable experiences of my life here.

I have recommended friends to always come to this hotel if they are on the island, and those who have stayed have had similarly great experiences.

this place was recommended to me by friends,i stayed for 1 week ,we had a small bungalow on the beach the guy who own's was friendly and would chat with us everyday,ive stayed in many place's in thailand most of which are eaisly fogotten but this one is very special,you can take one step out of your front door and be on the beach its amazing.

you will need to catch a taxi or take a bike into hadrin but its not far,i have stayed in hadrin before and on the fullmoon night my bungalow and the one next dooor got broken into,so my advice is dont stay in hadrin PBR is far enough away from all the craziness.

ive seen reviews on here saying this place is bad because they had a spider or cockroach in the bathroom,but they seem to forget they are on a tropical island,personally i didnt see anything in my room.

Brillant place so much fun, Great hospitality and the food was good (im a chef i should know lol). Any problem, request or general Help I needed was there and the management bent over backward to sort. Location is paradise, The Rooms do exactly as you would expect and were kept very clean. The resort as a whole has a friendly feel and inadvertantly encourages all guests to interact with each other. Would always recommend it and if in Thailand I would always be stopping off there!
