Rin Beach Resort
Ranked #97 of 135 Ko Pha Ngan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

Me and my girlfriend took a room for four nights during the full moon party and enjoyed mostly the view from our room.
The hotel service is not too good, it's not clear to them that they should clean the room every day and if you want them to clean your room you have to tell them that.
The swimming pool is nice and clean.
The best thing in this hotel is the view and the location.
Prices are OK

We quite enjoyed this resort situated in the heart of the Haad Rin district. It would be an ideal location to both relax by the beautiful pool and stumble home from the full moon party. As far as Koh Phangan goes this was a good place. Just be careful they apparently charge if you get sand in you sheets, a tad ironic because it's a beach front resort!

Right by the pier at Had Rin, where the boat comes in from Ko Samui. About 5 mins walk from the full moon beach. Good pool with a nice restaurant. A little bit on the expensive side for what you get, but I guess you pay for the location.
Our room was comfy and spacious, but the bathroom smelled pretty bad.
Some reviews I read complained about the woman at reception, but I think she is just being efficient! Just don't get paint anywhere or lose anything and there will be no problems!

Very handy location, and to be fair I found this not an unpleasant hotel to stay at. Booked the beach front bungalows but can imagine some of the other lodging options may be less desirable! The pathways and steps are rather precarious, so not ideal for anyone with slight mobility problems. The pool area is great, though the wooden loungers could do with foam toppers as its hard on the back when laying out for more than an hour. The pool bar offers breakfast and lunch/early dinner and the two occasions that I ate there I enjoyed. Agreed from other reviews - the woman at reception is a dragon, we didn't have any problems with her though (booked for 5 nights as it was over a full moon but only stayed 2 nights)All other staff were friendly. They have a small bar/shop selling obvious things you may require by the pier. If you are looking for a convenient location with nice pool for a couple of nights Rin Beach resort is fine, just don't expect to find much of a beach!

Room Tip: Its worth paying more for a better standard of accommodation if this is important to you.

A dirty, grotty, horrible hotel with the most vulgar staff imaginable.

I could have dealt with the horrible room and location but being told to pay more when we checked out, due to them thinking we had stayed an extra night when we did not, was ridiculous.

The staff are unbelievable - very hostile, aggressive and beyond rude.

After trying to explain that we were only here for two days someone grabbed hold of me and the next thing I knew there were a dozen people attacking us - throwing chairs, shoes anything and everything.

How this escalated to such a scene I have no idea. I've never met such angry people with the worst attitude I've ever had the displeasure of encountering.

Please do yourself a favour and do not stay here - lots of similar reviews below also.

We arrived and we found an used condom in the room (next to the bed). The staff did not respond to this mistake. It´s a dirty Hotel and the staff is very rude. There are many others options with the same price and better service.

This was once a great hotel. Great to crash after full moon, but not for anything else. The showers are terrible. The rooms are insecure. When locked out, our neighbours were let in by the owner picking the lock. Our other neighbours were robbed. Beware of the lady at the front desk. She is very hostile. She would not give us our keys for an hour as our friends wanted to store their bags with us and she didn't like that idea. Make sure your affairs are in order. We saw a group being beaten by her footsoilders as she wanted them to pay extra. The pool, however, is great.

Room Tip: Bungalows are just private versions of the economy rooms. The showers in both are terrible.
