I read good reviews about Phangan Beach Resort on tripadvisor and decided to give it a go. My friend and I did a 4 night stay and both of us were quite disappointed with the accommodation. The room was small (even though we picked the best room), the water from the tap had a rotten egg stench and the mattress I slept on was not in good condition and I could feel the springs poking my back.
One thing I loved was the massage provided by the resort though. It was 100baht more than the usual but we appreciated the convience of getting a good Thai massage right beside our room.
The view was alright and the beach... quite frankly, unswimmable. I would much prefer the beach by Haadrin - deeper and cooler waters with softer sand.
Appreciated the friendliness of the staff, the bartender was pretty chatty and took a couple of us out one night to visit the good parties.
Overall, I felt that it was PBR has loads of potential but might be needing a little upgrading of their interiors and furnishing. And if possible, an alternative music choice (instead of house music in the day) might be kinder to dizzy heads from a night of too many drinks.More
