I checked in here for 5 nights.

All staff very friendly and helpful, especially Sunny. She has great English and is knowledgeable on the local area.

I hired a big air con bungalow which was clean, spacious and met our expectations.

The resort itself is well maintained and a short walk from the beach.

The food here is amazing, had breakfast included in the deal. I had many lunches and evening meals here too and can not fault the quality.

The location of the resort is pretty central, couple a minutes taxi ride will take you to bars and restaurants.

I would recommend staying at this resort as it is reasonable priced and good value.

One slight negative, there is no safe in the room but the resort is so quiet and felt safe.

Thanks to all the staff as they made us feel at home.

Nice garden setting. The bungalows are average. What makes Papillon good are the staff who were all wonderful. The breakfast was very good. Like other reviewers have commented it would be nice if they had beach towels but its not that big a deal. The sheets on the beds were a bit sparse. I recommend renting a motorbike and exploring the island, there are some great beaches on the southern end.

Thank you for your review, appreciate it. Nice to hear that our staff is nice and friendly, we think so too and are so grateful to have them.

Will think about the sheets, maybe ad something warmer. Beach towels are unfortunately too expensive for our budget (we have to send them to a laundryservice) and we don't want to increase the roomrates.

Hope to see you again!

Warm regards
Caroline and Jens

We stayed at the papillon bungalows for 6 nights of our honeymoon, we wanted a relaxed guesthouse near to the beach and we got exactly that!

The bungalows are lovely, clean and in a beautiful garden setting which sometimes made us feel like we were in the jungle with the animal noise in the night! Breakfast is included in the room rate and is one of the best guest house breakfasts I've ever had! The restaurant also serves food during the day and evening which is really good and reasonably priced.

The staff were very friendly, we rented a scooter from them which was very reasonable at 250baht per day and they were very helpful when some items of clothing went missing when we sent out our laundry all items were found and returned quickly!

The only issue we really had was the location, the main road is difficult to walk along as there is no real foot path and a lot of traffic, you can walk along the beach but there are large channels where water discharges into the sea, these can be quite deep during the evening and there is little or no light, bring a touch! To the left of the beach we found the channel so deep it was impassable in the dark.

If you turn right on the beach you will find some lovely beach restaurants and bars, lym's rice bowl, somewhere else and san's sunset bar were our favourites.

The staff is super friendly. The resort itself is nice gardenlike area with a pool and a cozy restaurant where u can spend time. Free wifi works in the restaurant. You can borrow dvd's and watch them in your room. Our bungalow had aircon and was really nice. Beach is close and had free sunbeds. Food in the restaurant is good.
