The Blue Parrot Beach Resort
Ranked #11 of 137 Ko Pha Ngan B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 August 2012

Had a lovely time at the Blue Parrot with 2 friends. It was recommended by someone we met per chance on koh samui.
It's clean and very presentable, there is a little patch of garden outside each bungalow which is really lovely and well maintained. I stayed in an AC bungalow which accomodated all my needs. The food is very tasty and if you like Pizza this is the place to get one! The staff are very nice and friendly. Trips and taxis were easily organised by the staff. If you want to chill out and relax on Koh phangan, this is the place to do it.

We arrived a few days before the full moon party, when we arrived the hotel was dead and we were the only guests there, at first it seemed perfect, on a beautiful beach in Koh Phangan, however we ordered a fan room and were surprised to see that the fan room consisted of a stand up fan that hardly worked, where as everywhere else we stayed the fan was on the ceiling as the standup fan was hardly effective which left the room extremly hot and unbearable, so we had to move as the fan room was a bit of a con!

we suddenly had to leave koh phangan and told the manager who was completly unsympathetic and useless we felt bullied in a group of three young girls, and ended up paying for an extra night in and air con room which we did not use, i think the manager/ owner thought he could take our money

i would not recommend this hotel to anyone, the thai women tried to charge us excessive amounts for laundry and were not helpful, they just sat in a hammock all day and were not attentive to our needs, i am not a picky traveler i just felt the owner is a bully and the staff were not attentive and they tried to con us out of a lot of money. The fan room is useless and unbearable and its too far from the full moon party.

Room Tip: dont use fan room

conorrooney, Owner at The Blue Parrot Beach Resort, responded to this reviewResponded 8 August 2012

Both reviews dated Aug 6 are from the same room, the guests were booked in for 5 nights over Full Moon and after two nights they informed me that they had to leave for Bangkok as their friend was sick there. I told the girls that I was charging them for one night cancellation in an A/C room as they had moved their booking the day before (as opposed to the full stay period as it said on their booking confirmation). I would have done the same whether it was 3 girls or a 15 man rugby team so any notion of bullying is untrue. Considering that both girls were together and that one of them says that my staff were lovely and the other says that they were not attentive to their needs, I think the girls should have got their stories straight before they wrote these reviews.

the staff were very nice and pleasant but unfortunately the owner was not so nice. We were supposed to stay here for the duration of the Full Moon Party but unfortunately due to a illness had to leave and Blue Parrot were not helpful what so ever. Customer service is definitely not a strong point for this place! We felt taken advantage of as we were a group of 3 girls.

Blue Parrot was situated about 10 mins walk along the beach from the pier or 3 minute taxi ride. The entrance was in need of some repair as very uninviting for a first impressions. We were greeted by friendly staff & shown to our little bungalow, a couple back from the beach. The door was open when we arrived so the room was very very hot. The air con was totally useless for the first 12 hours but after this it was ok. The room looked good with all concrete moulded into bed plynth, bedside tables & dresser etc, a great concept but when the concrete heats up it takes a long time to cool again. There was no seating, no TV in the room & no fridge & although you can do without the TV, the fridge is a must as water was quite expensive at the bar & of course needed to clean teeth etc. They do not have a pool but guests are invited to use the one next door as you cannot swim in the sea as it is too shallow at this beach. The restaurant is a little expensive so we ate next door also as they had good food at a reasonable price. Blue Parrot had a nice deck area & also a pool table & hammocks which were used by the staff the whole day it seemed. The place was a littlke untidy so we believe the staff could have been using their time more efficiently like other resorts. We were told the boss was away so thismay have been the reason & the day we left the lawns were getting done. We arrived home one night only to be baled up by dogs, not allowing us to go into our gate. Just as well the manager was still up as she had to come & call the dogs away. This is so not customer friendly. All in all this place could be a nice little resort with a few little extras, however fridges are definitely a must. We were going to stay an extra 3 days but decided to book a resort a little further along the road as the price was the same for a lot better value .

Room Tip: Must have aircon, you would not be able to sleep in these rooms with just a fan.

great place to stay for full moon. Although on the expensive side (that said most places were the same price, just expensive compared to other place in thailand) this is a great place to stay for full moon. after hearing horror stories about bungalows getting robbed we felt totally safe here. conor the owner took all of out important/expensive stuff and either put it in safe or had staf mind it overnight. Always a good group staying there, people tend to congregate around free pool table at night and have a few beers. nicely situated looking out on sea although not swimable. just a 2 minute walk from the main street. a 10-15minute tuc tuc from haad rin beach where full moon takes place. we were happy to be away from the chaos down there! great staff and lovely food.

Room Tip: all the rooms are great but maybe one of the middle bungalows either side so you're not too clos...

Stayed at this hotel to go to full moon party, it’s a lovely little family run place, rooms are very basic, there is a lovely bar area where you can get food and relax. The resort is pretty quiet, we walked to the ferry port and there was a little market.
Would stay again.

Room Tip: It was my birthday so asked for a sea view room.

Nice little Resort. Stayed there for three nights for the full moon party. Rooms were very clean and we'd emailed to get beach front bungalow which the management was happy to provide. The overall stay was very pleasant and made so welcome by the the family based staff.
