“Friendly, cozy place in Haad Salad”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

We stayed at Cookies 13 nights this january. We had a really nice and spacious room. It was clean and had all we needed. The beds were actually good compared to all of the other places we slept during our 2 months in Thailand. The rooms are modern, and quite newly decorated. The terrace was perfect and the view amazing. We had a room in the hotel area, not the bungalows, so we had a lot of stairs to climb when returning from beach, pool or the hotel restaurant. Our 2 small girls complained a lot when climbing those stairs, and it was also a very good workout!! The breakfast was also very nice compared to thai standards, and the food in general was ok in the restaurant. I loved the garlic fried shrimps!!! I had them everyday.

The staff is so friendly and nice, we enjoyed eating there almost everyday because of the good atmosphere. The view is the best i Haad Salad. Aom that manages the hotel is extremely nice and will go out of her way to make your stay pleasant, easy and nice.

We are definately coming back to say hello to all the nice guys and Aom at Cookies.

This is the second time we have stayed at Cookies. We really feel in love with Haad Salad last Christmas, its a quiet family orientated beach and it suits us perfectly. No noisy bars till all hours, and no people bugging you on the beach. I think you'll pay a little more here, for any resort. But its worth it for the peace (although the dogs do like a bark at night.. bring ear plugs!).

Cookies is in the perfect spot on the beach; built on the bank on the far side of the bay. This is not for people with difficulty walking as it is all on a steep slope. The view is worth the walk though, day and night the perfect scene of the arc of the beach. It really is something special.

The restaurant is pretty good. I have to say the menu has been limited since last year, and there are only a few Thai dishes on it. This was dissappointing as we only wanted to eat Thai food during our stay so after a few days we found ourselves going out to other places just to try new dishes. The restaurant, however, has the perfect ambience and we would have been happy to eat here every night, had it not been such a limited menu. I did notice though, that the majority of people staying were ordering the western type food, so I guess the menu reflects demand.

Breakfast was ok, in buffet style. Last year we were able to enjoy porridge with fruit and eggs to order, but now they have simplified things and it was a bit limited, but we were happy with what was on offer.

We love Cookies and if we return to Haad Salad we would definately stay here again. However, we have found some nice other areas that we may stay in next time for a change.

NOTE: If you want to get around you will have to hire a bike and the dirt track leading to the main road is dangerous for an inexperienced rider. So dont pick this hotel unless you are able walker for the sloped and able to ride a moped on soft ground full of loose rocks. They really need to get that sorted.

Cookie's Salad Resort is a great place for the midrange budget, or the backpacker looking to splurge. Haad Salad is paradise: an intimate cove of crystal clear water and soft powdery white sand. Because it is a cove, there are no waves.

Cookies is perched overlooking the beach. Seems to attract a mix of travellers, from singles to couples to families with small kids. I think I stayed at the "oversea view wooden hotel" room and it huge: spacious, airy, cool, lots of natural light, with its own balcony space and hammock. Balcony was so big, I could do yoga on it overlooking to water.

Breakfast is included and it's good. Food at restaurant is hit and miss, a bit pricey but you'll find that the food at Haad Salad a bit more expensive because you need transport to go elsewhere.

A few small drawbacks: There was no safe in my room. Cookies is on the end of the beach that is rocky and isn't nice, but you literally just have to walk 100 m down to get to the white sand. If you are walking back from a bar/restaurant on the beach at night you'll get accompanied by barking stray dogs. It is pretty terrifying at first but once they approach and see you, they stop barking and just happily tag along. Also, I noticed that because it is a sheltered cove (and therefore not breezy), there were a lot of mossies at night.

But also a few perks: beach towels, snorkel rentals, beach rinse off shower, free pick up from the pier.

I did suss out cheaper options on the beach but you definitely get what you pay for. And likewise, there were many other hotels and bungalows that were charging a lot and were completely full for weeks.

Great stay, being a family business this probably helped alot, staff always "truly" friendly and helpfull. Salad beach is known to be one of the best on the island. For snokelers 200meters after swimming or walking 1m to 1.5m lagoon there is a nice coral reef... (30m past the white flag) saw blue spotted ray, a few pufferfish, a barracuda et al.

Room Tip: room 11 has a great view and a hammoc, any of the ocean panoramic are probably the same if anything...

Stayed 10 nights in Cookies in December. Although the weather was not perfect, everything else was. The staff in the restaurant was so friendly and helpful, thank you so much Yan and the others! :)
We got possibly one of the best cottages, just next to the beach but still a bit elevated which meant a beautiful panorama of the beach and also not too much climbing wherever we went. The cottage had a huge room and big bathroom and also a big terrace with lovely view as I said.
The hotel has a lovely pool too with sunbeds and even a slide for kids, and there was also a small catamaran which we didn't see to be used but I guess it was due to the windy conditions.
During our stay we wanted to check all the different restaurants on the beach but in the end we ended up spending every evening in Cookies restaurant, since it had nice food, great choice of dishes, a lovely view to the beach, cosy seats, nice cocktails, cheap prices, the friendly staff, good music and a biliard table as a bonus - also two book shelves in case you finished all the books you took to your holiday. All in all we had a wonderful time, no complaints at all (except the not so perfect weather but who to blame.... :)) and we would definitely go back or advise it to others.

Cookies are excellent. Very good rooms, excellent food - most thaistyle but made for western people - very tastful and served with charm from a very kind staff.
Every body is help full and they do a good job - they are family - in the best way you can think.
The restaurant has a beautiful view to the beach, where you can swimm and snorkling. It close at 22.00 - and that is very good when you are a family.
Our best recomandation from Denmark.
