Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

the room itself is fairly basic (we booked a standard room) but clean. outside the hotel is very good, direct access to the beach, infinity pool. the restaurant is very good and reasonable price. the best part is the staff, everyone is very friendly and welcoming.

First of all after reading some reviews on tripadvisor for this resort I have to say: if you are looking for luxury or a high class resort with top services look for something else. But I`m sure it will cost you two or three times more! For everyone else (also for us) is this resort absolutely great! I`ve stayed here with my girlfriend for 6 nights in January 2014 and enjoyed every minute we have spent in this resort. The view from pool area to sea is incredible, the pool is really just a few steps from the sea. The staff is really helpful, always keep on smiling. Breakfast ok, reasonable prices for lunch or dinner. The room was basic, but clean at all, beach is one of the bests on Koh Phangan! Nice peaceful place, so if you want to party hard find some accomodation on haad rin beach!
So overall this is a nice place to stay, also for groups with children.

Room Tip: Depends on your budget, but the standard hut is also enought.

This place seems to have two faces. The good:the staff is very friendly, breakfast is ok, and the infinity pool area is clean and a good place to relax. The bad: our suite cottage was not so clean and nice. We had to kill several cockroaches in the bathroom, and there were stains on the bed. Checking the bathroom for cockroaches when you want to brush your teeth was not our idea of a nice holiday. They only 'clean' the room once every two days, and by this they mean splash the bathroom with water, change the towels and make up the bed.

In our opinion, they maintain the reception and pool area very well, but don't care a lot about the rooms/cottages... We would not stay here again.

We planned on staying in Koh Phangan just for 3 days during the full moon party.

We ended up staying 10 days at this great resort! It has nice rooms with a semi-outside bathroom which is really relaxed because it kinda deels like your showering outside.

The staff is really friendly and always willing to help you. We especially liked 'Happy Guy', you'll understand the name when you meet him.

The hotel serves a great, big breakfast with a lot to choose from!

It's a 15min drive from thong sala but with a scooter its no problem.

And then the pool.. It's an (very clean) infinity pool overlooking the sea. The best way to wake up is to jump in before or after breakfast, at least thats what we did!

Please DO NOT stay here! We had a standard bungalow booked for 3 nights. We checked in, were brought to our room and immediately called agoda and demanded a full refund. This place is a dump, it was a rock hard bed in the middle of a tiny room, there was no kind of decor it was just a bare room that reeked of mold and mildew. There were cracks in the ceiling and a lizard came running out of one, the bathroom was a whole other story, it looked like a bathroom at a gas station on the side of the road that you are terrified to even go to. During the brief 10 minute stint in our room we also realized the wifi and air conditioner didn't work properly so had to go down to reception to use the internet to find somewhere new to stay, and got literally aten alive, this place is in close vicinity to a lake and is completely taken over by Mosquitos, leaving welts and bites all over us, they were EVERYWHERE. The staff however were friendly, except when we asked the receptionist to call us a cab to leave she would not and told us to go wait by the road. I am wondering if people are being told to write these "rave" reviews because this place is a complete dive, save your time and money.

We only stayed here for one night as somewhere to stay after the full moon party. We arranged a transfer to the hotel from the ferry at Thong Sala, which was unexpectedly provided for free. We had lunch and some drinks in the restaurant which were very reasonably priced and had a nice view. Our room was fine for the one night, we had a garden view room. If we were staying longer I would probably have upgraded. The hotel arranged a taxi service to the full moon party for 200 baht per person which left at 21.00. The hotel kept hold of our key to save us losing them at the party! There was someone waiting when we got back to return the key. Due to the torrential rain the wooden walkways around the hotel were wet and a bit slippery, my husband fell over and has a bit of a cut on his shin.
There were plenty of DVDs/books/magazines to borrow from near the restaurant/reception.
The staff at the hotel were really friendly and helpful.

We had always stayed on Haad Yao when staying on Koh Phanagan but this being our third stay fancied a change, we looked at quite a few resorts along the West coast and settled on Sunset Cove.

The staff were brilliant, really friendly always happy to help with a smile.

They offered an excellent walk in rate which included breakfast for our 5 night stay.

The beach was ok and was cleaned by the staff while we were there.

The infinity swimming pool was great - amazing for sunsets.

Breakfast was very good. We had lunch there once which was ok, not great though.

There were lots of little extras like bug spray, free fruit and DVDs which was a really nice touch.

We stayed in one of the C bungalows, which is a little way back from the beach front. They are all detached and of wooden construction on stilts. The bed was firm, not too soft. The room and bathroom was clean with TV and fridge. The bathroom had ineffective looking netting which in fact worked very well and we hardly saw a mosquito in the bathroom or room.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would return tomorrow if we could! The low season walk in rates are excellent value for money.
