“Best hotel on our stay beating several 5 stars in bangkok and koh samui!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Koh Phangan was another area we did a lot of research to try and find a quality stay at reasonable prices and again tripadvisor steered us true. This is a Thai family run business and it’s a mix of quirky service with outstanding local friendliness and chilled from start to finish. Your isn’t ready sure sit down, have a drink and look out on an amazing scenic view. They have an infinity pool which was a god sent as you need to go miles out to get any depth from the sea which has a lot of corals which the island is well known for (some good diving spots can be swam to/complimentary sea kayaks either). The food from breakfast to dinner was real good home cooking – not on par with the more expensive dining options further up the beach but the service won’t be beaten. They looked after our transport to and from the hotel, booked ferries for us when we were leaving - when that was delayed and they spotted us still waiting they dropped over to check that we were ok!

We spoiled ourselves at times in Thailand with some luxury 5 star hotels yet this is the one that stays in the memory as the best hotel from our trip

My friend and I were really looking forward to our two night stay here but were terribly disappointed. The room was bare, grubby and the first thing we saw was a cockroach... and then hairs under the sheets. Yuck. The restaurant food was not great and the area isn't brilliant for other options, so we chose to escape the next day to Koh Samui - definitely the best plan. Such a shame as Sunset Cove looked really nice online, but completely failed to live up to expectations.

My husband and I went here for our honeymoon, the service is great, staff are nice and helpful, the villas are sweet and really just everything you need, the restaurant was wonderful, just perfect.
it seems as though they thought of little treats for you, from dvds for you to take as you please to anti mosquitos spray:)

the only con is that it does not have a beautiful beach, it has a great infinity pool but the beach next to the hotel is so so, other than that it is perfect.

We will come back!

Yes can not keep away from here, the peace and quite this place has is just amazing, from the pick up at the pier, the relaxed approach from the staff, nothing is too much trouble, not having to pay for anything until you leave (if only other places would do this) it all adds to the relaxing time you will experience here.

We stayed here a few nights at end of August with 2 young children (4.5 and 1.5).
Great beach, amazing sunsets, superb breakfast, free fruits (nice treat), beautiful pool including for the little ones, friendly and helpful staff and beautiful restaurant in the evening.
If you are staying in the serene Haad Chao Pao and you have small kids this is the place for you. You might find other families with kids too so kids will have some company :-) Just need to mind some cracks in the wooden deck floor (some rennovation is welcome, as well as in the rooms).
I think that rate during high season is a bit high, but still affordable. Apparently season changed back to low on September 1st.
For dinner check out the restaurant and don't miss the ones next door as well.
Enjoy!

01- 03 oct 2013
Shared mini bus taxi from hadrin pier to resort was 100 baht each (8 people travelling west).

Accommodation - we paid 1200 (£24) per night for C7. it was decent enough, quiet, some insect noise at night, but not a problem at all, & there were three power cuts during storms, but only at night.
Infinity pool - perfect.
Bar/restaurant was good, and all the staff were very polite.
Breakfast - nice, & included in price.
Beach - picturesque, great sunsets, a few rocks, cleaned every morning, & you can view the locals walking with fishing nets/hooks during the morning.
Sea - shallow waters, very clean, 3-5m visibility, but much better as you get to the boulders (50m out), with decent marine life for snorkelling.
Bed - squeaky, good job there were no neighbours, ahem!
Shower - good, plenty of hot water,
Room cleaned every 2 days.
Mosquitos appeared after a storm, and butchered us between 1730-1830...

We would definitely go there again.

Room Tip: In the off season it was empty. Try for an upgrade...
