“Amazing view, Great location”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

Stayed for 7 nights between 23.9-30.9.2013.

This resort is an excellent option for those staying at Haad Rin. It is very close to the beach parties but far enough to be very quiet around the clock.

The resort offers lots of different bungalows with different pricing, and I gather that the experience may vary greatly depending upon which one you choose.

We took one close to the shore with a full sea-view and no neighbors (part of the bungalows consist of two rooms, one above the other, so you still have them).

The view from our balcony was just superb.

Pros:

Great Location & view.

Quiet & peaceful.

The interior design was very nice and unique (wooden floors, huge stone as part of the bathroom's wall, a tree growing through the balcony floor).

Wifi is included in the room's rate & works ok.

Very comfortable bed.

Cons:

They make up the rooms only once in two days.

No safe in the rooms. There are lockers inside the reception area but it is being closed between 21:00 PM and 8 AM the morning after. So you can't access your staff during the night.

The resort is badly lit during night time. This is troublesome since it is built on a cliff and the paths are quite crooked and uneven. So you have to be careful when you return late (especially after drinking in the party).

Breakfast is not included in room's rate.

The water pressure in our room was very weak. It got a little better after we complained, but still not satisfactory.

General:

1) Overall it is a really nice place, very suitable for young couples. We would certainly try to visit again.

2) There are lots of insects in the island of Pangan. We've encountered ants, millipedes (not poisonous) and even a scary-looking spider in our room. But you can't blame this on the resort since it is in the middle of nature. When in a bungalow in the tropics, it is hard to avoid insects.
Actually, we complained about the ants and they were taken care of.

Room Tip: Take a single-floored bungalow with a nice sea-view.

I stayed at sun cliff for 4 nights with my girlfriend and mainly had a great time, however, the service was truly lacking.

The bungalows are beautiful located on the sunset side of the island meaning you get some spectacular views at night and don't have to hear the noise from the full moon beach. The rooms are also very clean.

On our third night we were rudely kicked out of our room and told to talk to the big boss. The big boss was very rude and told us we only booked three nights so we had to leave although I had confirmation of 4 nights. The big boss sent us away to talk to another person at the other side of the resort (the resort is on a cliff making this quite dificult). This new person acknowledged that they made us a mistake but told us we had to leave our room since a new person was coming in. We had to argue with them to try and get out of this but they insisted the room was better. After visiting the room it was not at all and they eventually let us stay in our room. With that being said, this wasted a lot of time on an already short visit and was not appreciated. I must not I usually don't care about poor service but this really just put us in a bad mood for the rest of the day

Stayed here recently for the full moon party. It is situated in an ideal place for the full moon, close (less than a 5 min walk) but far enough to escape the noise and chaos! We booked 3 bungalows and each were amazing, all different and unique and each offering spectacular views from their balconies. It was reasonably priced also, we had an amazing stay. Definitely recommending it to friends.

If your going to had rin for the full moon party then stay at suncliff as its only a short walk to the big party but when you want to sleep there is no noise.

The best kept secret in had rin is the pool and restaurant at suncliff bungalows. Its on the cliff and so very nice....

book ahead on FMP night.

Room Tip: if you can afford it take a bungalow on the cliff.

Reviewed 15 March 2013

We stayed here for the full moon party feb 2013 and stayed in the bungalow for 4 nights 1000 baht a night, it was clean, had a hammock, the basics no problems with that, then after much debating we decided after packing and checking out to stay for another 2 nights as we couldnt decide our next move, we were given the choice of a room for 700baht which again had the basics but the air conditioning kept breaking and when we asked for batteries for the remote they said they'd do it and we came back to our room there was no remote so we had an uncomfortable night with the air con on all night with no ability to turn it off.

anyway we paid through an agent down the road for the overnight ferry and explained we were staying at sun cliff, the next day we checked out and left our bags in the reception, a few hours later we checked the bags again, then at 8 oclock we thought wed get our bags to be ready for the mini van but ohhhh no we were told through the very rude receptionist 'no ferry', we asked what did she mean and the receptionist explained the agents had rang and said there was no ferry, to which this would have been hours before and she saw us going to our bags to check on them she could have told us then!
with her blank expression she told us to get accomodation at jaha and made it out the agents had arranged it all to which we went down to jaha and they were not aware of this. so then my boyfriend went back to the suncliff receptionist to find out really what was going on, she then rang the agents once then said they were closed. My boyfriend told her to ring again as she seemed to have a 'cant be bothered attutide' she dialed the phone number then walked away, luckily the agents picked up the phone and sorted us another ferry out for the day after and arranged some accommodation after all the rubbish the sun cliff receptionist had caused us.

I honestly think she ruined one of my days on holiday as she made me sob by the lack of communication she gave us.

the accommodation isnt anything like the photos either.

Room Tip: dont choose sun cliff resort if you dont want a poor service

The views from our villa were spectactular! Beautiful sunsets. Room was quirky (a rock and tree ran through the room and bathroom) but we really liked this. Yes, there were a few ants and bugs, but a mosquito net was provided and we had no problems. Overall, this was the surprise package of all the rooms we stayed in during our trip. Also great for a slightly quieter place to stay for full moon - only a 5/10 min walk to the main full-moon beach but a little quieter if you wanted to go to sleep before sunrise. Overall highly recommended

The hotel consists of many cabins. They are scattered on a cliff that overlooks the sunset beach.
The view from the porch is amazing! You also get a hammock and a bench. Reading a book there is a lot of fun :)

The shower has hot water but the stream is rather weak.

Bottom line, I think this place provides good value for money.
If you want to be super close to the parties then you should get a room somewhere else on the sunrise beach, but if you want to enjoy a special view and a bit more quiet place, then this is a winner!

I would stay there again :)
