After 3 weeks of travelling around southern Thailand we spent our last two nights him Thailand here as we wanted to get an early ferry and also wanted to see the night street market in Thong Sala. We left an awesome beach and Hotel In Haad Yuen to stay here. In hindsight we should have stayed at Haad Yuen. Thong Sala is pretty boring compared to other parts of Ko Phangan. We enjoyed staying at the Grand Sea Resort. We booked the two big beachside bungalows and they were large, clean and very comfortable. The pool is nice, the beach is very average (you need to walk out 300 meters or more to get to water above your knees!!) The staff at the Grand Sea were very pleasant and helpful but the restaraunt was average at best but acceptable. We were stating during a quiet period. The resort was nearly empty.
We had an nice time staying here but it wasn't our favourite on KPG. Whilst staying here we did the elephant safari. We wish we hadn't as we felt that it was taking advantage of the elephants. The seemed to be treated ok but its a fake environment for them to live and it exploiting them so a few tourists can ride an elephant. We would boycott the elephant rides in the future.
Also the staff at The Grand Sea resort were very helpful especially the guy who drove us into town and would pick us up. He was a great guy (so was him family). Thank you
We wouldn't stay here again yet we did have a nice stay here. There are just nicer places elsewhere on KPG
