“Just right!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

Mr. Nice is so incredibly friendly, he, as well as the rest of the staff, really shaped our experience. We paid 600 Baht a night for a fan room for three people on the beach. It has hot water, toiletries, and a nice porch with a hammock. It was perfect. The smaller bungalows (which we stayed in) are still on the beach, but quite a bit less expensive. There were also few houses on the beach for rent but those were around 2,000 baht a night. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay on Koh Phangan. Even if you wanted to spend a night or two going to some of the parties, they are still close enough that you can get there and back without any trouble.

This place is a delight, and definitely lives up to its name. After a terrible experience at the nearby Rainbow Seaview Resort, where the owner is decidedly not nice, Nice Sea Resort was a welcoming oasis of kindness and simple comforts. The owner, Mr. Nice himself, is a true delight, going out of his way to make sure your stay is a great one. We felt more like friends than customers.The location is gorgeous and the bungalows are quite comfortable, with varying degrees of luxury depending what you pay. All are beachside with hammocks and provide all the basic niceties (including towels, water, soap, and free drinking water) which many places will forgo altogether. The food at the restaurant is delicious and well-priced, and there are cute dogs everywhere. Love this place and will definitely come back!

Room Tip: The deluxe bungalows are fancier and closest to the beach but the basic ones are right there too - y...

What a gem.
Nice by name, SUPER nice by nature!
The bungalows are in a beautiful location on Sri Thanu beach, you walk out of your bungalow onto the very pretty beach. The staff are the most helpful people you could wish to meet. The bungalows themselves are excellent- really comfortable, own balcony with hammock, free drinking water and toiletries are provided, as well as having hot showers - a rarity in bungalows in this area. But the big plus here really is the staff. They made our stay so comfortable and happy. We couldn't have asked for better.
Well done Mr. Nice! I shall definitely be back!

Best place of our whole trip to Thailand!!! Mr. Nice is so friendly and helpful, no matter what time of the day you call for him! Food is the best we had in Thailand I would recommend just eating there the whole time you stay. Out of all the other resorts this has a lovely stretch of beach, and watching the sun go down from you apartment is amazing. We stayed in a aircon room and it was great. Clean and comfortable with great tv channels/movies. There are dogs that live on the the beach but they are very friendly and being animal people made our stay even better :)! Unless you feed them or give them attention they will not bother with you, so even if you dont like dogs you'll still enjoy ur stay. Rent a scooter and travel up along the coast to find lovely view spots and beautiful beaches. For the price it is amazing value and i would go back in a heart beat!!

I stayed at nice sea resort for one week where I thoroughly enjoyed myself and highly recommend this hotel to others. I stayed in both the basic fan bungalow complete with very basic bathroom setup which was very cheap and the deluxe bungalow with A/C and better shower facilities. The restaurant is great and the Wifi is acceptable in all rooms. Mr Nice will pick you at at the ferry with a huge smile and will treat you well throughout your stay.

This is the most beautiful place that I have ever stayed. The welcome from Mr Nice and his family's hospitality during our stay was genuinely wonderful. We arrived in the dark to be shown to the most outstanding bungalow, on a powdery sand beach. Mum cooked us a lovely Thai meal before we retired to bed, leaving the blinds open so that we could experience the view as soon as we woke, and what a view !!! We could not wait to get up and out to enjoy the fantastic beach, wonderful clear warm sea and a Thai masage on the beach. If you are looking for a place to get off the world for a bit, then this is it. After spending a few days in Bangkok, this was just what we needed. We planned our trip around the full moon party and Mr Nice had transport laid on for us. He also arranged our ferry crossing back and took us to the port when it was time for us to leave. I cannot rate this high enough.

We decided to go to the Nice Sea resort because we didn't want to spend to much,we found the room with a good price and very good reviews.When we arrived the place didn't look to good,we crossed a little bridge and there was a lot of rubbish around,but once we crossed this bridge everything changed.We booked a wooden bungalow with a fan,it was very hot because it was august,but in the bungalow it wasn't to bad,the room was very simple but very clean.The bathroom was big enough with a very good shower.The family was wonderful,very polite,very good food,thai and international,especialy the fruit pancakes that we had in the morning for breakfast.Nothing was a problem for Mr.Nice and his family,they did everything to make us feel like home,and made us feel one of the family.It was so perfect that we was supposed to stay there only two nights,but we changed the bungalow with a bungalow with air condition and that was more comftable tv,fridge ,and in the end we stayed there another eight nights.The bungalows are on the beach,and if you want there is a small village that has everything you need with a five minute walk from the resort.Perfect to rent a scooter to go around the island.We also stayed at the Salad beach resort for another eight days because we already booked the place from home before going to Tailand,the standard of the resort was supposed to be superior of the Nice beach resort,even if we had a nice stay there,I would prefer the Nice sea resort.If you want a place simple,friendly,clean,with no frills I would certainly recomend this resort.
