“Great value!”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We stayed at Haadson this February with a group of friends and had a great time at Haadson. It has a beautiful private beach which you can snorkel right off, had a great restaurant with delicious and trustworthy food. The restaurant had a concrete island on the water with hammocks and tables which was gorgeous at sunset and we had a great time jumping off into the water. They also had a large selection of delicious cocktails at great prices. We stayed at the bungalows on the beach which was only a 100 m walk to the beach itself and they had Thai masseuses all day. The rooms were a good size and had their own hammocks on the veranda. The only down side was that the bathroom lacked a shower curtain but they were clean and considering the price we paid, it was an excellent location and the restaurant was great, which certainly made up for this. The staff were also very nice and accommodating to our needs, Definitely recommend at this price!

Room Tip: Definitely go a bungalow room! Great views, close to the beach and the restaurant.

The hotel rooms are nicer than the villas , the resort is right on secret beach but a sharp uphill walk to the neighbouring two beaches. The Burmese staff here were great though the others where very indifferent. Better places nearby.

We stayed for 2 weeks in 2008 in Haad Son.
Clean, simple room with AWESOME view.
We paid 11€ for a room with cold water and fan for a week and 13€ with hot water and air-con (monsoons came so we needed a bit of hot water).
The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We had booked our accomodation 3 months in advance, but when we arrived we didn't get the bungalow or beach that we booked for! We came with the late ferry on the night of the fullmoon party and went to Haad Yao Bungalows (see through resort) where we were suppose to stay. The staff were rude and didn't give us any notice, they made some phonecalls and said that they where fully booked and that we had to change resort. We where upset but tired and went with them to Haad son Resort & restaurant instead (both resorts had the same owner). When we came there we got a really lousy bungalow, not with the tv and fridge that we had paid for. Plus there were alot of mini ants in the bungalow :/ After two nights we changed to a better room, right to the beach which we got for a better price after some complaining. Our stay didn't turned out as planned - we didn't stay at the beach (haad yao) we originally booked for which is less isolated then Haad soon, where theres only one restaurant. Though it´s an okey walking distance between both beaches and it was nice to see both beaches. Koh Phangan still became our favorite island and we rented mopeds and went around the island. Renting mopeds is mucher cheaper (200 baht/day) then going with taxi which is (minimum price) 150 baht per person, one way. The haad son beach was fab and you could snorkel with alot fish. It was one of the best beaches during our trip! but the service was not that good & it was a awkard feeling between us and the staff our entire stay. As soon as they saw us they felt uncomfortable and ashamed in a way....

The bar area down near the water is really nice and its is great to relax in the hammocks in the middle common area.

However, the room smelt of mothball, they don't service your room unless you ask for it to be because "they have problems with theft". Shower is on demand hot water which is only a trickle. Overpriced for what it is considering the other places we stayed in Thailand.

Also Koh Phangan is only for full moon parties. Don't waste your time here for anything else. The other two islands have lots more to see and do.

We stayed in this hotel in January 2011 with my boyfriend. This place is great for people who do not expect luxury and really want to unwind. The hidden win of this hotel is in its closeness to nature and its location in a beatiful private bay. We planned originally to stay just 4 days but we changed our mind as we enjoyed it so much. Of course after 7 days we quite appreciated the luxury of Kirikayn in Koh Samui but Haad son on the other hand was the Robinson island experience you crave for. This is a place where you feel hidden from the world. Very romantic. As I said dont expect immaculate service here, or wide choice in breakfast. This place is about staying in a hut, swinging in a net in the bar, staring on the amazing sunset, enjoying funny service of Toan and sending lighted baloons on a journey across the ocean. The shacks have airconditioning, safe, ok beds and very basic bathrooms. Hotel rooms feel a bit safer and more equipped but you lose this amazing feel of having your own summer hut with a net on the balcony. As I understood they have also a couple of luxurious rooms on top of the hill. You get towels and they change bedsheets although not every day and the cleaning is not the best in the world. Buy mosquito spray. The huts and rooms are spread in a beautiful hilltop gardens with butterflies and banana trees. There are two restaurants, they are fine but if you fancy some really great dining take a walk to nextdoor Haad Yao beach, you can taste a shark there for virtually nothing. There is a small buffet place on the Haad son beach with fruits and drinks, you can also hire sunbeds there. When we stayed there, there was about ten people a day in the beach, paradise! The sea subsides in the afternoons, it gets shallow and there are dead corals but it did not stop us from swimming and low tide was everywhere in Thailand were I have been. There is a swimming pool, which we never used as we swim only in the sea. Koh Phangan is a more natural island than Koh Samui at least in this Western area away from Half moon parties, not so touristy, not so equipped, lot of young travellers there. There are only couple of shops in Haad Yao with really basic stuff, there is a bancomat. You can go by boat to Koh Tao, which we did. It made the impression on me that it is absolutely stunning for snorcheling but there are not many beaches and it is oriented on scuba divers. The boat journey is quite long...we had cloudy rainy weather and lot of people were seasick. What I also recommend is a trip to Ang Thong national park, this is really beatiful and worth doing. The trips and ferries are all very well organised in Thailand, no worries.

Room Tip: Chose huts close to the sea. If you dont like small insects, stay in the hotel section.

We were excited to get to Haad Son ready to hit the Full Moon party when we turned up the this place was filthy i wouldnt bother using the bathroom you would be cleaner if you didnt bother. no towels or beds were changed in the 4 days we were there over the new year period so we bought some and our toilet got blocked and no one came to fix it so we had to walk up to reception everytime. We knew it was a bit of a distance to the full moon but there is literally NOTHING around the hotel unless u hired a moped but after seeing the state of most peoples injurys we thought it wasnt worht ruining the rest of out hoiday for, the hotel bar is only busy because of this although the food is quite good. the decor needs updating if they replaced the gorish pink and green paint with white i think it wiuld brighten the place up in stead of being a dark whole. on the up side they do have a bus that picks you up for fee at the tongsala pier.

Room Tip: pick the spa room at the top of the hotel - about the only one that looked decent.
