We booked a bungalow with Mr. Nice for three nights...three weeks later and we're still here!
There is a range of bungalows to suit every budget and we've tried them all. Every single bungalow is exceptionally clean and well-equipped according to where it is on the scale of luxury - I'll describe each option for you...
The basic wooden bungalow is perfectly fine - you have a powerful fan and a comfy bed, complimentary water, towels and as much loo roll as you need also comes as standard. For 500baht a night, you really can't complain.
The standard AC bungalows are LUXURY. Big, clean bathrooms, big comfy beds, sea views - just amazing. The really posh bungalows are just the same but bigger and are right on the sea front. The free wifi is a huge bonus - it stretches to the beach so I'm 'working' from my sun lounger!
The staff are just amazing - we now regard Mr. Nice as a friend as opposed to the resort manager after everything he has done for us. He and his family are just the kindest, loveliest, most honest people you will ever meet. And Mama's cooking is to die for (the coconut soup especially - YUM)!
We've checked out other areas of Koh Phangan (seeing as we've been here so long) and nowhere else even comes close.
Did we mention the private beach and the beautiful sunsets? In short, just book here - it's the best decision you'll make on your trip to Koh Phangan.

Room Tip: They are all good, depending on your budget and what you're looking for. Our favourite is bungal...

I stayed at the Nice Sea resort in one of their wooden bungalows for the month of May in 2013. I had a delightful experience. I searched up and down the beach for bungalows and talked with many of the operators and saw inside a lot of the wooden style basic bungalows (most in the 250 bht/night range were cold shower, Thai style bathroom, fan only and not very clean to say the least). Nice sea resort, while more expensive, was far and away the best of the places. VERY clean, adequate if somewhat rustic bungalow (but if you want more amenities they have beautiful luxury rooms and villas as well), and friendly and attentive staff. In addition to this the folks who stay here tend to be families and young professionals rather than college backpackers. This made for quiet neighbors that were fun to chat with when laying on the beach or in the restaurant. Wi-fi works fine (more than you can say for some places that advertise wi-fi). Beach umbrellas, chairs, and loungers were well maintained and available in sufficient numbers. The staff rakes the sand and beach area daily! The entire grounds are very well maintained. Mr Nice is absolutely professional and caring. I temporarily misplaced my ATM card and was dismayed that I would have to eat at the only restaurant in town that took credit cards (also the most expensive), but Mr Nice offered an alternative if my card didn't show up and then called the bank in Thongsala to figure out where my card may be. He suggested the correct amount to pay for taxi/transportation, was always ready with a reference, a true gem. I was very well taken care of. The staff speak varying degrees of English, and all will do their best to make sure you are helped in whatever way you need and that you are treated with utmost respect and friendliness. Safe, clean, friendly and professional, great value for the price (whatever level you stay at), fantastic atmosphere on beach and in "neighborhood," and the dogs that have claimed that part of the beach (and temporarily a visitor or two and their porch) are friendly and fun-loving. I could not have asked for anything more. I will definitely stay here in the future and have any friends who find themselves on the island stay here.

Room Tip: Wooden bungalows are more rustic and can get hot during summer even with fan. Spend more for AC if...

This is such a beautiful destination, we chose this place mainly due to the reviews on here and let me tell you we were not disappointed! They have a choice of 3 levels of accommodation, the cheapest being the fan cooled huts. These we were great, they had hammocks on the front porch and whilst furthest beach, you still got a great view of the beach and see. All the accommodation are a good distance and well positioned from each other. There is a bar and restaurant on site, the food is lovely and great value for money. Mr Nice was so lovely, nothing was too much trouble, he arranged our ferry, picked us up from the ferry, took us back at the end of the stay. I highky recommend this venue!

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.
