V-View Beach Resort
Ranked #24 of 91 Hotels in Ko Pha Ngan
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here in May for the full moon party.

Pros:
Owner is friendly - let him do your paint for the FMP!
Beach looks poor at first, but if you walk out a but the water is shallow for as far as you can see which make it like paddling in a warm bath! :)
Bungalow was modern and clean upon arrival.
Short walk to big c supermarket (50 baht meals if you're on a budget like us)
Usually a party going on at the hostel next door.

Cons:
No amenities in room (fridge, kettle, safe, TV etc.)
Room has no lock, you have to use padlock (we brought a bike lock to close it during night of FMP)
Room was not tidied or cleaned during our stay.
Food isn't great and portions are small.
Mosquitos can easily get into the room.

Room Tip: Go for the aircon room!

Stayed for 4 nights over the Full Moon party in April 2014 with 4 kids aged 8-14 and absolutely loved it. We had the big hut on the waterfront that sleeps 4 and a smaller one for 2 - and it was exactly as we hoped. A veranda with hammock for chilling out on, free wifi, a restaurant that sells great food at reasonable prices, a much more lively place next door (run by a great character called Paul) that has music etc, it was just fantastic to relax and enjoy the Thai beach experience. The guy who runs it is a legend - works all hours, couldn't do enough for us, booked trips, taxis, ferry tickets etc. Our rooms didn't have AC but it was fine, just used the fans. Perhaps a shelf or two in the rooms would help, and no, you don't get the bins emptied, sheets changed etc unless you ask and / or do it yourself, but hey, he's not a slave and who really cares about that sort of thing for that sort of money!

Room Tip: There is 1 hut (Number 1) that is on the waterfront - it has a great view but can get noisy with som...

The owner is a nasty individual who thought it was funny to insult us in front of other guests for no reason. He also demanded cash upon check out and refused to accept any credit card. As for the location, it is very far away from the "Haadrin beach" where all the fun takes place. The v-view is basically a boring bungalow located on a very dirty beach! If you choose the bungalow with the fan, be prepared to bake inside your room, as it is extremely hot! Avoid this dump at all cost.

Good points: The location is perfect and the place is beautiful and calm.The food is indeed good and not more expensive than in other Thai restaurants on the island

Bad points: The services are simply inexistant: In 4 days, our linnens have never been changed.
No furniture at all in the room ! We had to take the small table that was on the threshold .
The bathroom smelled the gutter from times to times
The owner is quite lunatic.

We stayed here for 4 nights and had a great experience. Big, slightly basic room, though had everything we needed (especially given the price which is very reasonable). Warm showers and very good AC. The food was excellent (amongst the best we've had in Thailand) and the dining/chill out area is right on the beach so great place to relax. The owner, Pot, is a really nice guy and arranged our trips/transfers etc for us, which was a great help. In a quieter area, so if you did want to visit the 'livelier' parts of the island, you would need to get a taxi/tuk tuk, but this does mean the resort is always quiet and peaceful.

I have been to stay here on three different occasions now and every single time feels like the first. Simply stunning. Pot, the owner is the dictionary definition of legendary. He is the waiter, the travel agent, the guard, the photographer, the comedian, the painter and if you become lucky enough through friendship...your taxi too. The list is endless and I haven't even started on his place! White sand beach for miles, volleyball and beach front lounge area with bean bags and hammocks and the little huts/rooms are just bliss. I never want to leave. He makes this the most relaxing experience in the world. Forget the Maldives, forget the Virgin Islands. Pot's v-view is exquisite. Only place I would ever consider staying in Koh pha ngan. Cannot wait to go back!

Room Tip: Ask for the rooms opposite the social area. A little more expensive but the best of the bunch!

My girlfriend and I came here from Haadrin beach following Full moon Party.
We stayed in an air-conditioned cabin with a private ensuite.
The room was great, it had a huge double bed and the bathroom was very clean. It helps a lot that the bungalow had a hammock!
The common area on the beach was very comfortable and had good cheap beers and reasonably priced food; although the serving sizes are rather small.
The owner was great too, very helpful and kind.

Room Tip: Get a room with an air conditioner, one of the newer bungalows with dark wood exterior.
