Stayed here with a friend last week. The family who run this place are really lovely and helpful. The room rates are totally reasonable. If you want housekeeping done, just ask. The massage girls are super talented, best thai yoga massage I've had in a while. The grounds are kept really tidy, and the beach itself is lovely to lounge around on all day. Not too noisy. Quite a few dogs about, but they are all super friendly little guys. There are some fancier places for similar prices nearby, but we decided to stay put at Nice Sea Resort because the atmosphere there was so chill, it felt like a little home away from home. Thanks for a lovely stay!

This place exceeded my expectations. The staff are so nice and friendly, Mr Nice is the manager and he was super helpful with travel tips and even gave us a ride to the port, as he was going that way.
The resort was right on the beach and was very relaxing. Rooms were so clean, secure and well worth the money! I will be sure to return and would recommend this place to anybody!

The owner Mr Nice is fantastic. Very helpful and kind as others have said. Gave me the fan from his office because he was worried I be too hot with just the ceiling fan. Looks after his guests. Always smiling. In fact everyone there was lovely. Food very good. Right on a lovely, peaceful beach complete with amazing sunsets and various affable canines. In short, a beautiful chilled out place to be.

I was so happy with my choice when I arrived. The location was perfect! We had a bungalow right on the beautiful and private beach!
The staff was incredibly helpful and kind. Mr Nice went out of his way and did everything he could to make our stay as good as possible.
Could not ask for anything more. My stay there was absolutely perfect!

The resort was peaceful and quiet with a perfect location right on the beach. The bungalows were pleasant and clean. Mr Nice the resort owner was lovely, courteous and certainly lived up to his name! He helped us print off an important document I needed to send home. Would definitely recommend him and this resort.

We were 8 people staying there for 4 nights- absolutely brilliant! We stayed in 3 different bungalows, all A/C. If I was to come back, I would not probably choose the most expensive bungalow, purely because we did not spend a lot of time in it, but there was nothing wrong with it- it was lovely... We just got home to bath and sleep. A/C is essential though, especially if you are travelling with children. Although we went in the hottest month of the year- April...
We all loved the relaxed atmosphere there and the beach was amazing. We snorkeled just off the shore... Nobody was trying to sell us stuff and we just felt like at home...
Natiwut's mother is amazing chef- don't bother eating else where. We tried, but could not find anything better.
Breakfast was great- the kids loved different pancakes with mango, pineapple, banana. I would always go for pad thai or fried rice (after full moon party) and would feel full after untill the afternoon...
If you need transport to the Full Moon Party or a transfer- Natiwut will organise everything!
On the first day our little girl got sunburned, so Natiwut brought Aloe Vera plant from his other home, which was very useful. We did not ask- he offered. His whole family:himsef, mum, dad and sister seem to be very nice people, they care a lot obout their little busines and I am sure if you had any issues or concerns, they would do their best to help you.
We wanted to drive around the island, so asked Natiwut for the best way of doing that and he arranged for us to hire a truck. We enjoyed that day a lot, went to some nice beaches and a waterfall.
After that we went to Koh Samui and at the end of our holiday we all said that if we were to come back, we would go to Koh Phangan and we would definitely stay in the Nice Sea Resort. Oh, the evenings there on the beach, with a bottle of cold Singha, watching (trying to photograph) lightning... I hope we will come back there one day...
Natiwut, if you are reading this, thank you and your whole family for everything- we had the best time ever! Good luck!

If your looking for total chill then look no further. Its utterly beautiful, we originally booked a beach bungalow but upgraded to a beach front delux villa (soooo worth the extra), nice and modern, large villa, clean and comfortable, large balcony leading down to the whitest sand, 20 steps to the sea, the beach itself is wide and clean and quiet, very few people about. The sea is flat, the water is hot, not warm - Hot! you can walk out about half a mile and still only be up to your knees (i'm told it does get slightly deeper in other months). There are small sand banks in the sea perfect for sunbathing on. Nice sea resorts has enough sun loungers for all, if you dont see them laid out on the beach just ask and they will get you one from the store hut. The massage hut on the resort is great - 300THB for an hour massage (which often ran to about 2hrs if nobody else was waiting). There is a restaurant in the resort opposite the reception, Mr Nice's family run the kitchen and the food is exceptional, sooo cheap, we would often order 3-4 dishes just for the two of us because they were so cheap, try the coffee shakes drink and the fried cashew nut noodles :). Mr Nice himself is a great guy - he picked us up from the ferry when we arrived and when it was time for us to move on to our next destination he dropped us off at our next hotel. Its such a beautiful place we will be back. Additionally if you stand on the beach looking out to sea, turn left and walk down the beach, you'll see a beach cafe, a posh restaurant (which is ok but not as good as Nice sea food) and then a bar called '3monkeys' - only recognisable from the neon painting of the 3 monkeys on the side wall of the bar and what looks like a faux campfire out the front - get yourself in here Ki and Lisa run the place, Ki is more than happy to put on a fire poi show for you while Lisa keeps your drink topped up - meet some great people in here and visited it at least 3 nights out of our 5 night stay. This entire section of Thailand is exactly how you picture thailand - just like the movies, complete with people with guitars gathering around campfires randomly along the beach. Katie & Rachael

Room Tip: upgrade to the best villas - trust me they are worth the extra
