“What a great place to stay.”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

Me and my wife stayed here in January.its the 5th time we have been to the resort.the staff are very friendly.we wanted to see the island but not on a motorbike,so they arranged everything for us by getting a pick up truck with a driver who had extensive knowledge of the island,we had a great day.they also arranged and advised us on the best way to get up to Bangkok.they really do make make you feel welcome.the food was really nice,western and Thai.we spent alot of time around the swimming pool and the beach bar,for us it is the perfect place to have a real relaxing holiday.oh and I can't forget how great the massages were.we had one nearly everyday.

This place had a really nice atmosphere with really friendly staff. The resort is right on the beach (hence the name) with cool little bungalows. Although if I was going again I would definitely go for the air con option. Food was nice although slightly above our tiny budget (although didn't find anything much cheaper on the island!) The only problem was that we had to stay at least 5 nights (3 would have been enough for us!) There is a nice pool to help you recover from the full moon party antics... and a bar on the beach when you're ready to go again!

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.
