“Great holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2014

had a really amazing time, great location! stayed here over Christmas and new year. the people who worked there were very hospitable and catered to my ever need. I would highly recommend staying here any time of year as they always throw great parties. i still stay in contact with a few members of staff on Facebook as i am looking forward to returning at some point this year as they made my stay very delightful. If going on your own or with friends it is the place to be as they draw a good crowd and everyone is very friendly.

We stayed here as part of a holiday to go to the full moon party and it was pretty ideal for that purpose and didn't cost much.

Everyone on reception etc were very friendly and helpful and made booking things really easy.

Bar at the pool was always busy and not very relaxing to sit by the pool, as well as finding it quite slow to get a drink especially in the evenings.

Hotel fairly set back from main life so have to get a taxi to go anywhere which on a rainy May evening can leave you feeling a little stranded.

Over all I think it's good for a short backpacker stay as the atmosphere was lively and the rooms quite cheap (although very basic)

Stayed here for 6 nights over the May full moon period. We stayed in a private room with a fan overlooking the pool. Decent sized room and you can have it cleaned whenever you like. Quite close to the loud Tiki bar which plays music from 11am until the early hours but I guess you have to expect this over the full moon period. The hotel offers cheapish taxis and free paint for full moon. It also has its own tourist information. One big negative was the cost and quality of the restaurant food. Well overpriced compared to the local restaurants. Overall, I'd recommend staying here though.

Thank you for review, we're pleased that on the whole your stay with us was a good one. It can be loud around the Tiki Bar, but as you say, this is to be expected around Full Moon! In regards to the restaurant, we would never consider ourselves a finished product and are constantly improving, which is impossible to do without feedback, so we welcome your comments and will take them on board. Hopefully we will see you again and you will notice some changes.

Stayed here for 6 days over the May 2014 full moon. In a nutshell it's a great place to stay, good food and drinks, great views and a lovely pool. Had no problems and staff were extremely helpful. dorm rooms were clean (even with 14 people coming in and out all day) and the air con was the best I've had yet, a little too good but we did have the controls and kept on full. security was good with lockers in rooms as well as a secure locker room by the reception. Round the pool was good and the owners were happy for us to stay in the pool after hours. A little away from the full moon but the pickup truck ride there and back was well organised and cheap, leaving every hour throughout the night/morning. If I'm back in koh phangan then I will be staying here again.

Room Tip: dorm rooms are always a gamble, if you're coming to the full moon expect a party atmosphere wher...

We're very glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We try to think what would improve our stay if we were travelling and use these ideas, so it is nice to hear you appreciate out efforts with the air conditioning and lockers. Thanks for the good review and hopefully see you again soon.

Travelling for quite a while so absolutely loved this place! Was like a posh backpackers resort and made us feel like we was on a really nice holiday. Stayed in dorms as still on budget but these were really nice dorms-large patio doors with little patio, air con and two toilets in each dorm-all for 200 baht! Bungalows looked really mice aswell. Pool was lovely really big, clean and amazing view of the beach and sea too. Food was nice and average price. Strawberry daqcuires were amazing, so refreshing. Definitely stay here, cheap great location and beautiful setting!!

We payed £6 a night for a dorm and as a budget traveller and this is a steal for full moon accomodation. There is an excellent area to cure a hangover with a decent size swimming pool and a pool bar. The prices are a little high for food in my opinion but if that bothers you there's a supermarket down the road with a cheap cafe. The dorm was fine for £6 over full moon, my only complaint was the fact they have gravel outside the dorms meaning the dorms get dirty easily. Showers and toilets are dirty. There are lots of complaints about the high deposits.. Personally 300 baht for a towel is acceptable as a lot of people thieve them but 300 baht for a bed sheet? I know it's a deposit but I can understand why that would wind people up. Personally I made do with a towel over me. Location wise, you are 5 minutes drive from the pier in ban tai and 20 minutes from haad rin (full moon). They will organise a taxi for 100 baht each way to full moon. There's a few bars and restaurants walking distance. I would stay here again for full moon. Only complaint is dirty bathroom but tolerable as a backpacker.
