“Lovely pool & beach, but that's really it!!!”
Reviewed June 5, 2009

Booked this through a travel agent in Bangkok fir 5 days last July and paid about 2,500 baht per night - definately not worth it!! Bungalow was small, bed was not very comfortable, like the other reviewers said, room was not cleaned for the entire 5 day stay and we had to remind the staff several times to get towels and toilet roll for the room. TV had barely any channels and there were frequent power cuts. Restraunt was ok, food was nice, but staff really didn't seem to give a crap, you could be waiting for service for 10/15mins even if the place was empty!! Overall, lovely pool and beach, but I'd look elsewhere!!

May, being the low season, we were able to book a beachside villa for only 1000Bhat/night. We had the whole beach to ourselves, and considering that it's a p[rivate beach to begin with, it made for some great football along the beach for my friends and I.

The villa is air-conned and vrey bueatiful. It was right along the beach, and had a hammock on the front patio. There is a fridge to store things in, and a TV.

The restaurant serves soem great food, with great service, for very reasonable prices (by mid-range/high end resort standards).

The pool is wonderful, and not too small. It overlooks the bay and has a magnificent view from the poolside.

I strongly recommend staying here, especially during low season.

We stayed the last 2 nights of our 14 days Thailand trip, I wished we stayed here for the full 2 weeks. Koh Phangan Island is absolutely magic and Haad Son Resort is no different, great friendly staff, beautiful secluded beach, our room was clean, and the food in the restaurant were great. Most of the staff speak good english this is a bonus in itself, weve stayed in 3 other places in Koh Phangan and seen a few more so we know in regards to value for money,service this is definitly up there. We chatted to others who stayed there and they couldnt believe how friendly the staff were either.

Only 15 minutes to Thong Sala Pier and 30 minutes on the motorbike to Haad Rin.

The Owner/Manager Oh(yes her name) local Koh Phangan lady was soo friendly and welcoming, she even lent me her motorbike at no charge cos the resorts motorbikes were all rented. I have recommended to friends who are going there next month and we will be returning end of july for a longer stay.

Thank you for the great experience, definitly recommend to anyone.

  • Liked — Friendly staff, beautiful secluded beach, sea view
  • Disliked — our room was situated at the top of the hill a bit of a walk to main area

We found Haad Son per conicidence! The room was really great, nice inside and the view to the beach is just wonderful!
The pool is clean like the rest of the hotel!
And the staff is superfriendly!!!! We had a lot of fun in the restaurant and the food is good aswell!
I think there is no better place to stay on Koh Phangan!

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights over New Year. The hotel is in a fantastic location (one of the best on the Island) with beautiful views over the ocean.
When we first arrived (New Year's Eve) we were shown to our Pool View Bungalow. The bungalow had not been cleaned properly, only one of the lights inside worked, the TV was only tuned into one station and it was impossible to see anything from our bungalow as it was completely surrounded by bushes. We complained and were moved to a nicer bungalow the following day.
We stayed here with 6 other friends and during our 5 nights here our rooms (4 in total) were never cleaned once! We also had to ask at reception for fresh towels and even toilet paper which was slightly embarassing.
The staff were pleasant although they often forgot about you when ordering food and drinks from the bar. Also, when it came to ordering food and drinks you weren't required to sign the bill which meant anyone was able to put drinks/snacks on your room.
When we arrived back at the hotel on our first night after being out, the whole complex was in darkness. It was very difficult to find our way back to our bungalow and there didn't seem to be any hotel staff around.
We did enjoy our time here but I think if you look around there are far better hotels nearby that provide a better service for less money.
The hotel has the potential to be one of the best on the Island but it would have to improve considerably in several areas.

  • Liked — The location
  • Disliked — The fact that our rooms were never cleaned!
