We stayed at Phangan Beach for eight nights. The resort is not directly located at the main road, a small gravel road leads to the resort. If you got much luggage and missed the shuttle service, ask the driver to let you out in front of the resort and not at the main street.
Phangan Beach is a very beautiful, clean and well-kept resort with nice owners and employees. They got some concrete bungalows and the standard wooden bungalows. We stayed at B7 and had a wonderful seaview with lots of kite-action.
For kite-boarders and those interested in that sport Phangan Beach is probably the best choice, if you prefer swimming and snorkeling you should do trips to better areas (Haad Salat, Koh Mao etc). The sea is pretty low there, so swimming is perfect for litte children, but maybe not so good fun for adults.
The restaurant has some nice snacks (Pizza, Honey wings) but was not as convincing as other restaurants we visited. A match billard costs 20 Baht.
An internet terminal is missing, but they got free wifi for those who bring their smartphones/tablets with them.
Concerning the room (B7): We thought the AC was placed a bit bad directly over the beds where the heads are rested, but it has probably to be there due to lacking alternatives. The room itself was ok, even though the small whirlpool-fridge a bit to loud. But overall: A beautiful room in a really nice resort with many awesome people and an incredible beachbar.
The only thing they could improve is the music, but thats just a matter of taste, right?!
And a word to Ban Tai: there are way more beautiful bays, beaches and villages on Phangan like Haad Salad or Haad Khom, Ban Tai itself is not the most beautiful village, located directly at the main street.But what makes Ban Tai really so special is the location: you can get to everywhere in no time. So it's really worth a thought about making Ban Tai the homebase for day trips to the rest of the island.
