Stayed here 4 days, 2 couples. This place was the best time in our whole trip to Thailand. It was just the ambiance of the resort together with the weather which made all so good. Rooms were good, and we never asked for any housekeeping. Though we all were vegetarians but the still we had few options in the restaurant. Food was also good. Cannot say more about this place, just go and enjoy one of your best times in life.

One thing which we didn't like about the hotel was that, while checking out the owner charged us for the transport to the pier while she provided free while we were checking in. When we reached the pier we saw most of the tourist were coming on the resorts own transport and free of cost. Its not about the charge but its about attitude and service.

Room Tip: We had the most expensive room in the hotel so all was good with a sea view. But I think other rooms...

I stayed here for 4 nights in a beachfront air con bungalow. The bungalow itself was small but being right on the beach it didnt matter. The shower was cold but we didnt really mind. The beach was fabulous and quiet the whole atmosphere of the place is very relaxing. The food is lovely and the staff were helpful. The only negative thing i have to say is there was no free water which most places do offer and when we checked in the girl on the desk had little english so some things werent explained to us that I heard being explained to other people checking in. Also the wifi is only in the restaurant and not in the rooms. I would recommend this place to stay overall.

The bungalows were clean and well presented. The showers were cold but it was so hot we needed it! The fan was ok but we were extremely hot at times.

The beach and bar area are great and very clean. The staff were all very helpful and the good was excellent.

Overall this is a lovely resort and excellent value for money.

We were very positively surprised with this resort. There were mixed opinions about this resort and the bungalows looked just so so in the Internet. It turned out that we spend great couple days in this resort.
The atmosphere in this resort is very relaxing and friendly. It has rather British than Thai character, but if you just want to enjoy sun and sea it should be OK for you. Beach is very clean (probably the nicest in this area, with some hammocks and original sun-beds). Entire resort is located in well maintained garden. Bungalows (we were in the wooden ones) are in fact much better than they look in the Internet. They are comfortable and clean. The only thing that might be improved are bathrooms, which should be refreshed. In fact at some hours of the day, for some reason they are getting bit stinking. Another thing which I disliked were surfers coming very close to the beach. There were plenty of them and they were making swimming dangerous.
In my opinion it is not five star resort, but in fact it offers quite good quality of accommodation, beautiful beach and nice garden for very modest price. Great value of money, I strongly recommend this resort.

Room Tip: No need to pay extra for higher standard bungalows. The wooden bungalows are absolutely enough. The...

Dear Valued Guest,

Thank you for your review on your trip to Phangan Beach Resort.

I am very happy to hear that you had a great time and it surpassed your expectations from the internet.

We do our utmost to maintain the gardens and beach all day to make sure you enjoy paradise to it's fullest.

In regards to the smell, this can sometimes come down to storm drains overflowing as the tropical storms and rainy weather here can thunder down where the drainage cannot cope.

We would like to thank you and wish you all the best.

Andy Duggins
Owner

We saw the pictures of this place online and immediately decided that was where we would be staying. It didn't disappoint, the bungalows line the beach with a few behind them, and theres a great pool, beach bar and plenty of hammocks and loungers to laze the days away.
We had a problem with our first cabin (heavy rain led to a big leak and three of us had to squish into one bed). I told the owners (who are lovely and so helpful) and straight away they were trying to sort something out for us, and within an hour they had another room for us even though they said they were fully booked, and we got upgraded to a beautiful beach front bungalow that was so much more expensive that what we'd paid.
The rooms were really clean and there was literally everything we needed, and someone was always on hand to help us out. Great location if you want to go to the half moon party as well as it's only 10/15 minutes (100B) in the taxi away.
The beach is really pretty but not ideal for swimming, but that was fine as the pool is lovely and there's a massage tent there.
Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Koh Phangan.

Room Tip: Spring for air con, the fan huts are absolutely boiling.

We stayed here for 4 nights at the aircon beach bungalow.
It was great: we opened our doors and were right at the beach. Staff was great and always helpful with any questions. Quality of the food was well above average and Adam was a big help too.
Only thing I missed was more seafood on the menu.
