“Dont stay here!! Very misleading brochure. ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

From the stained towels and bedclothes to the shower that you have to hold yourself! This place may look good from the outside but is scruffy and dirty inside. I dont mind basic accommodation but I do mind when a place is dirty. I went for the deluxe room with ocean views, far from deluxe with 3 single bed scruffy mattresses to choose from.

what can i say about jack and the beach village? probably the only way to explain it is THEY SAVED MY LIFE (bike accident) could not recommend a better place to stay or better people to meet. It is the first place in Thailand where i felt safe and knowing they wanted to help me.

The Beach Village was so much fun for full moon party, great party atmosphere at night and chilled perfect place to sooth your hangover in the day by the amazing pool with a daiquiri! Our bungalow was literally 5 steps from the pool and then the beach, beautiful. They ran taxis to full moon for 200 baht return, we couldn't find it on the way home but that didn't even matter as it was still cheap. room didn't get cleaned but that was because we were too lazy to ask. Staff are really friendly and everyone there is chilled out and cool, restaurant is good too.

Ku club next door should be open more - it was my best night on the island.
Thanks Beach Village!

Room Tip: Poolside bungalows the best!

I only planned to spend a week here but ended up staying for three. The place has everything you need: great food, clean rooms, friendly and knowledgeable staff and management, and they host some great parties at the club next door. It is right on the beach and has its own pool. You'll find it difficult to leave!

When we arrived it was quiet as just after full moon however we liked the chilled out atmosphere, all the staff were pretty chilled out and made you feel welcome, always there to answer your questions and for any help needed, we had a beach hut where the view was amazing, the pool is also just off the beach, the only thing I would say is the sunbeds were uncomfortable and could do with some cushion covers, only a short walk to the supermarket and Tuk Tuk ride to the nightlife, they do have their own club on the beach called KU club which is good however wasn't really our taste of music but that's only our opinion, overall would stay here again if visiting Ko phangan!
