“Good for travelers, not for honeymooners”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We stayed at the Sarikantang for 4 nights (12-16/11/2012) at the deluxe pool access rooms.
Pros:
- The hotel is quite close to the main Haad-Rin beach (5 mintes walk) although the walk is a small climb on an unpaved road which could also get muddy if it rained in the last days - also note that most of the taxis would only take you to the entrance of this small road - the rest you'll have to take the hotel's taxi or go by foot.(~200 meters)
- The food is quite good and not expensive.
- The deluxe pool access room are relatively new so they are quite modernly designed.
- The beach is nice and relaxing
- The price is fair.

Cons:
- Compared to other hotels we stayed in in Thailand, this hotel's service is not as good. We also didn't like the fact that they charge you on the whole stay right on the checkin and also add 1% credit charge to the original amount.
- Ants are constant members of the room.
- Since the pool is shared between all the guests of the pool-access rooms you need to choose between staying in the dark with the curtains closed or opening the curtains and have no privacy what so ever.
- We also once left our key by mistake with a friend and at 02:00am when we asked the if the front desk representative could open the door for us so we won't be left outside he acted as if he doesn't know english and said he has no key to open our room (sounds reasonable? not to me)
- Although the Spa of the hotel is not expensive I'd recommend to do your messages elsewhere. I got a Thai message over there which was one of the worst messages I've ever got.

Bottom line - these hotel might be good enough for travelers who wish to upgrade their usual stay at guest houses, but for people who want good hotel with clean rooms and warm staff should look elsewhere.(I believe the Cocohut hotel which is right next to this hotel is a better option which I cover in a separate review)

Room Tip: Use either the pool-access rooms or beach front rooms.

We stayed at this beautiful resort for 4 days, and it was money well spent. Beautiful Island,beautiful beach and really nice rooms!we had the delux room i think,with the pool just outside our terasse!swim in,swim out!service was good,the food at the restaurant was fantastic!we didnt explore the island that much,wasnt much too see and we had all we needed at the resort! So if youre after a few days of relaxation in bautiful conditions,this is totally the place for you!I highly recommend this resort:)

My wife and I stayed here Oct 2012 for 3nights and would have stayed longer if we had not already paid for accomdation on the other islands.We were upgraded from standard bungalow to a deluxe which had all we wanted, safe, coffee making, balcony with hammock, great views,clean and well serviced. Good showers hot/cold.Aircon worked well. In all could not find a fault with this bungalow.The beach which is classed as private was beautiful and peacefull with plently of sunbeds scattered around.The restuarant is almost right on the beach with nice views. Breakfast was well served with plenty of choice. The meals were good valve and the price of a bottle of beer was the same as in the nearby town, so if you didnt want to leave the hotel it would not be worth the walk into town.The staff were very good and offered a good service.They arranged our transfer to boat for our next destination. We would definity stay here again if we came back to Koh phangan

It is not long ago when Koh Panagan was a cheap destination with great beaches and wild nightlife (if you consider Haadrin beach). this has probably changed for the most part. New real estate constructions, bad infra structure, stink from sewer, and bad food. even the famous Mamas Chicken does not quite taste the same.
But i thought at least the room at Sarikantang (which cost us 2400 Bht + not cheap for this island) will be appropriate. it was not. horrible shower, hard bed, no mousqito net, and bugs all over.
you better off paying bit extra and have a wonderful room at the adjacent resort.
but its not only the room which ruin it for us - the access road to the hotel is pure mud road. some taxi refuse getting there. walking to town is a pain too.
I imagine that some other room were better, which is why we gave it 3 stars and not one!.
The beach itself is nice, bring memories of old times where we were young and naive, like this island was once. Not anymore.

Room Tip: take the villa at the front of the hotel. worth it, if you can pay.

After a long day of work, this place is exactly what you need for a real vacation. The room is cozy with great view of well-decorated landscape. The beach is clean and serene.

My favorite part is the restaurant by the beach where you will have complimetary breakfast of your choice and fresh seafood anytime. The dogs here are so friendly too making me feel like home.

Phangan island is famous for full moon party but this place is recommended for family and couples. Not far from the party place but still have a space for peaceful privacy.

Cant wait going back there again for my next days off.

We stayed for 3 nights in a pool access room for about 4200 B for night (not during full moon).
The room wad very spacious and nicely decorated. The pool was much better than the hotel major pool.
Location: haad rin, on the quite side of the area. Good location to my opinion since it is right on the beach which is far enough from the noisy part of the area and only a five min walk to the center.
During Sept there were about 3 shuttles a day to the center but again, its only a short walk.
Free Wi-Fi arround the lobby and restourant ,the signal was good enough on our balcony as well.
We found 2 problems during our stay:
1. Brown water came out when we tried to fill the bath with hot water.
2. Breakfast: it took too long to take the orders and to serve them.

In total, we had a great stay and we highly recommend it.
