The staff was extremely helpful, they helped us get a scooter and took us to the pier for free after our stay. The bungalows are super good and the location avoids the mess of the haad rin beach, and still it's very easy to get there as there are always taxis passing. Can't recommend this place more!

The owner and his family were so nice and helpful to us during our stay, They even loaned us a charger for our camera as we forgot ours. Its a little far from everything but they rent scooters, which I highly recommend doing so you can explore the islands. The bungalow which has a hammock outside was cleaned everyday once you put the sign up. They can arrange trips and bus tickets too. On the mornin of our departure we had to leave at 6.30am and the owners wife dropped us into the port. We will definitely be back. truly enjoyed our stay here and would recommend it to anybody looking for cheap, clean and very welcoming accommodation.

I would highly recommend Ban Tai. I stayed here during full moon party in January. The rooms are nice and the resort has a good bar/ restaurant and is a 2 min walk to a small beach. There are several shops, restaurants and bars nearby which can be reached on foot. The resort is run by a lovely family who were on hand to book excursions, recommend restaurants and help with anything else. One day the owner took several of the resorts guests out on a great tour of the island for just 300 bhat each. Another night he and his wife have us a ride on their mopeds to a restaurant popular with locals and shared some of his home made wine
with us! Haad Rin (full moon party) is around 10mins away in a taxi and they frequently pass along the beach road.

great place to stay - guy and his family who run it are extremely friendly and he literally got up in the middle of the night to help my friend who'd fallen off a scooter. he gave us a free lift to the port on our departure day aswell. you can book things to do through the resort and hire scooters aswell. the restaurant attached isn't bad at all for hangover food. We had a 4 man bungalow which was cosy but clean enough for us. the only down side is you will have to get used to the taxis. it's half way between the pier in thong sala and haad rin where the full moon party is. walking either direction would be bold. overall great

Firstly I have to say the hosting family who look after this place are first class, when i arrived i was unwell the manager immediately insisted on taking me to the pharmacy on his scooter, because of this i was fit the next day for the full moon party, secondly he saved me a lot of grief... I took off in the morning and forgot to collect my passport, as i was about to board the ferry he came quickly down the road on his scooter and got me just in time!!
Apart from that I found their excellent service overall i.e food (great pad thai) laundry was excellent, they done my laundry in a hurry because i was leaving the next morning, also my door wasn't locking very well and they had it fixed immediately
Downside... well the location isn't fantastic but we only stayed here for the full moon then went on, the nearby beach isn't a great sight and there is very little within walking distance however they do hire scooters really cheap. And the beds... hard as a rock, but again i only stayed 2 nights and it was a good last minute place for such a cheap price. but all things considered for the price it was you cant complain.

Stayed here for 3 nights around full moon party. The bungalow was small, with only 1 plug socket and a bathroom full of ants. The wood of the bungalow let loads of mozzies in which made for an uncomfortable sleep.
The location was not within walking distance of many places to eat/drink but not far from the beach for a nice stroll.
We did walk along the road to the 'Fishermans restaurant', this served gorgeous food, defo go here!
The location was not a massive problem, as the road has songtheuws going up and down, so only 10 minutes either way to Thong Sala or Had Rin (FMP) where theres a great choice of places to eat,shops etc.
Overall, we didn't pay much for this place and feel we got what we paid for. If you don't mind a very basic bungalow this is fine for FMP time as you are literally not spending much time in it anyway. I would rather stay closer to or in Had Rin next time, just for the convenience of walking back after the full moon and having the freedom to walk to restaurants and bars without relying on or paying for transport.
