“Great value for money. Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2013

Couldn't have asked for more, brilliant value for money! Our rooms were basic but worth much more than we paid for them! Beach was amazing so clean and quiet just like a postcard. The nice family definitely live up to their name, so helpful even if they couldn't understand us they went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Traditional and modern cooking was soooo good and such good value for money! Mr nice himself was brilliant helping us book our boat and hotel for the next island. He also took us to the full moon party and to the port which was so much easier than getting a taxi and was a lovely touch! I would definitely recommend this place one of the best and most memorable places we stayed in thailand, we will definitely be returning :)

Mr Nice certainly lives up to his title. He's very helpful, informative and friendly. He treats all people the same regardless of standard of bungalow you book. The resort is super clean kept even cleaner by the efficient cleaners. Food is delicious. Location is tranquil and peaceful. Secluded beach.

One word to sum up the stay - amazing!! Nice sea resort was recommended to me and it exceeded all expectations (and they were high!). Mr nice collected us from the pier for a small and fair fee. He was so friendly as was his close knit family who work around the resort. Nothing was ever to much to ask for. There are dogs on the beach however they all have their own lovable characters and are well behaved. The only downside of staying in the end bungalow on the beach was that the water and electric supply struggled at peak usage times however the view and other services made up for it! I can't recommend this place enough!! Stay here if visiting koh phangan!!

Mr. Nice is so incredibly friendly, he, as well as the rest of the staff, really shaped our experience. We paid 600 Baht a night for a fan room for three people on the beach. It has hot water, toiletries, and a nice porch with a hammock. It was perfect. The smaller bungalows (which we stayed in) are still on the beach, but quite a bit less expensive. There were also few houses on the beach for rent but those were around 2,000 baht a night. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay on Koh Phangan. Even if you wanted to spend a night or two going to some of the parties, they are still close enough that you can get there and back without any trouble.

This place is a delight, and definitely lives up to its name. After a terrible experience at the nearby Rainbow Seaview Resort, where the owner is decidedly not nice, Nice Sea Resort was a welcoming oasis of kindness and simple comforts. The owner, Mr. Nice himself, is a true delight, going out of his way to make sure your stay is a great one. We felt more like friends than customers.The location is gorgeous and the bungalows are quite comfortable, with varying degrees of luxury depending what you pay. All are beachside with hammocks and provide all the basic niceties (including towels, water, soap, and free drinking water) which many places will forgo altogether. The food at the restaurant is delicious and well-priced, and there are cute dogs everywhere. Love this place and will definitely come back!

Room Tip: The deluxe bungalows are fancier and closest to the beach but the basic ones are right there too - y...

What a gem.
Nice by name, SUPER nice by nature!
The bungalows are in a beautiful location on Sri Thanu beach, you walk out of your bungalow onto the very pretty beach. The staff are the most helpful people you could wish to meet. The bungalows themselves are excellent- really comfortable, own balcony with hammock, free drinking water and toiletries are provided, as well as having hot showers - a rarity in bungalows in this area. But the big plus here really is the staff. They made our stay so comfortable and happy. We couldn't have asked for better.
Well done Mr. Nice! I shall definitely be back!

Best place of our whole trip to Thailand!!! Mr. Nice is so friendly and helpful, no matter what time of the day you call for him! Food is the best we had in Thailand I would recommend just eating there the whole time you stay. Out of all the other resorts this has a lovely stretch of beach, and watching the sun go down from you apartment is amazing. We stayed in a aircon room and it was great. Clean and comfortable with great tv channels/movies. There are dogs that live on the the beach but they are very friendly and being animal people made our stay even better :)! Unless you feed them or give them attention they will not bother with you, so even if you dont like dogs you'll still enjoy ur stay. Rent a scooter and travel up along the coast to find lovely view spots and beautiful beaches. For the price it is amazing value and i would go back in a heart beat!!
