“Great place, great vibe”
Reviewed 21 May 2011

just spent a month at phangan beach resort, had a great time. felt like i was part of the family. food's great, bungarlow's clean and tidy and not expensive, good value for money. There was also an amazing thai traditional massage place at the resort, beach view front called Cravitra Massage & Spa at a reasonable price range. There are many different variety of treatments available for you to choose from. While i was at the resort Andy and Thatchet organised some great day trips for me and also organised my all my transportation all the way back to bangkok. i was very pleased and will be certainly going back there for my next holiday.

My husband and I wanted to be right on the beach for a few days to chill out after doing a detox spa. We took one of the concrete bungalows, which is right on the sand and it was very basic for the price. A few little extras, such as a hammock, soap dishes in the bathroom, bedside lamps, etc would have made all the difference. The owners were very nice, but their dog was a bit crazy. He (as well as the other dogs on the beach) started barking frantically at random times and at random people and it was a bit scary, especially if you don't like dogs.
The resort was very empty when we got there, so I can see how it would be perfect for young groups of people wanting to party on the beach. For us, we enjoyed it, but felt quite isolated as we daren't walk up to the road, as it meant passing by about 8 crazy dogs, whose owners did nothing to restrain them.
The food in the restaurant was really lovely and very reasonably priced.

I was lucky enough to have an expert travel agent travelling with me who did his research and decided on PBR for our stay. SO glad we did. The whole time we were there we were looked after perfectly. Even when we were stranded in Thailand due to the Volcano cloud over the UK Andy and his great family were kind enough to find us a room in the fully booked resort for the duration of being stranded, at which time they helped us with money and still carried on the party! Where else can you go in Thailand where you can sit down on St Georges day and have a full English roast on the beach!!! Spent all day preparing it for us, it was epic. Had our very own security guard to keep the bad ones out, he was also really handy when to drunk to roll a smoke! ha

Can't thank you guys enough for making out time in Thailand perfect, will be back soon don't you worry. Have one of your ice cold draught Singhas waiting for us! Will go for the Air Con room next time ay.

Room Tip: Air con is needed.

We had a little beach bungalow, when you opened the door you were greeted with a hammock on a beautiful beach! The bungalow was basic but had aircon and a dvd player! The bar and restaurant were also fine

This hotel is fantastic!!! And what can i say about the owners..................... Big love to them!
This was our second time to this resort. First time me and my partner ended up staying a week longer, we had to see half moon with these guys, we were having that much fun! The second time we brought our friends there for Christmas and as anticipated had a blast! Home from Home! I think our third trip might have wedding bells a ringing!?
The huts are always kept clean, get a good nights sleep under the air con and the open air shower is just what you need after a full moon party dip.
But what makes this place is the energy of the people that keep it running, bar staff, kitchen staff, owners (and family) are what make this place so inviting!

Room Tip: The beach huts are lovely to sit out side for set!

I stayed here with a group of 5 others over the festive period and completely loved it. Andy and Dachuk made us feel completely at home from the moment we arrived, as did the rest of the staff. They made our entire group, as well as all the other guests, feel like nothing was too much trouble. After experiencing bad sunburn they were on hand to provide everything I needed to ease the pain...

The room was perfect for what we needed it for, sleeping in! It was clean, secure and well kept. We had three bungalows and none of them had any issues whatsoever.

The food in the restaurant as well as the cocktails in the beach bar were very reasonably priced and very impressive. In addition to this Andy and Dachuk were able to recommend good restaurants and bars locally for the nights we did venture out of the resort! During our stay it was one of the group's birthday. On very short notice Andy managed to get us a beautiful cake for her complete with personalisation!

I honestly cannot recommend the Phangan Beach Resort enough. As you will see from the attached photos it is beautiful, well kept and I for one will definately be returning!!!

Room Tip: No tips, just book! You'll love it!

When booking the Phangan Beach resort we were looking very forward to getting there. On arrival the Staff were very friendly and showed us strait to our room. The room had all the requirements you expect, air con, a fridge, tv and comfy beds. The best part of the Bungalows obviously are them being rite on the Beach! What more could you ask for waking up to the sound of the sea!

The owner (Andy) made us feel rite at home, we loved the hotel that much when travelling round South East asia we returned to Koh Phangan and The Phangan Beach resort on numerous occassions, we didnt even think of booking any where else. When ever we felt home sick the resort felt like our second home. While we were there it was my sisters birthday and they even arranged a cake and a small barby on the beach for us. If thats not good customer serivce i don't know what is!

We chose the Phangan Beach resort as we didnt really fancy staying in Had rin. And for the full moon trips they will always arrange taxis and different times to come and collect you to take you to Had Rin. They also arranged for a massive barby to be put on for the full moon nights....a full roasted pig being the best part!

Andy also arranged a boat trip for the day which was also fantastic!

Benefits of the hotel.

Close to the boat
Near restaurants
The food being FANTASTIC ( Some of the nices meals we had in Thailand )
Rite on the beach (which is lovely)
Best customer service we recvd in Thailand
Nice Bungalows

I couldn't fault the resort at all and can't wait to head back there! If there are any bad reviews on here IGNORE THEM :-)
