We stayed at the Salad Beach Resort for 5 nights. Try to keep it short:
The resort is well maintained, the staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms have been clean with daily room service. Furthermore the staff was very hornest: One day we forgot our 600€-camera in front of our room and the cleaning staff didn't take it but obviously put it on the table while they cleaned our "public balcony" in the morning (an improvement would be if they bring the camera to the receiption and give us a note about it).
The pool was clean as well, the resort was nice and green. The rooms had a security locker which is very good!

The breakfast buffet was not high quality...in fact we had breakfast included but only ate it ones. The other days we went to another restaurant to have breakfast because the breakfast at Salad Beach Resort was not very tasty. Another day we tried the restaurant for dinner....we ate directly at the beach, they had a friendly service and the food was good. Defnitly better then the breakfast.

Now, we had room 325 and room 326 - booth rooms are in the Main Building. We paid 2,300 Baht per night and room. It was peak season but defnitly overpriced because the rooms are very noisy - you can here the cars, and motorbikes starting in front of your window, the talking at the reception and the telephone ringing. And there is not a big noise protection...

Room Tip: Try to avoid room 325 and 326 - they are very noisy and to expensive for the noise.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights for the full moon party. This was the only hotel we could find where you didn't have to stay a minimum number of nights during the full moon party. It was good value for money although quite a way for the full moon party (around 40mins). The hotel was clean and the beach was good too. The hotel grounds are lovely. The location is good for a couple of nights however it's not so great if you want to go to the main nightlife. The food was good and the room was clean. The bathroon was especially nice. There is not much to do near the hotel however there are some nice places to eat along the beach. Would recommend for a short stay.

Ive stayed here alot over the last two years probably 5 or 6 times and it was always a pleasure. I loved the experience everytime and will go back for the rest of my life . The staff are amazing and will help you with everything as long as you are happy and willing to learn about them and their lives. Me and my group made very good friends with the staff and often spent out spare time talking to them about their life. Amazing place to stay a must and with such a beautiful beach why not escape the hustle and bustle of haad rin

This is a must go - must see.

To start off with, on arrival, we were met by the bellboy who carried our bags through the complex: I say complex but mean only in terms of hotel size, not rooms-the majority of the hotel being comprised of a beautiful open garden, overgrown and housing ornate statues, a waterfall (the entrance to the hotel is at the top of a slight incline) and a superbly kept and clean swimming pool.

Either sides of this mini jungle are small bungalows - these appeared quite modern and peaceful being in the garden, but we were in another part of the hotel (other reviews here have mentioned these and are worth reading).

We were then taken through to the main social area-our room was a beach view which was atop the main meeting place: the open plan dining area, patio, bar and computer area (for a small fee these can be used-I believe it was 20B per 10mins).

Taken up the stairs, our room over looked the patio and the onsite massage area (which I should add, had agreeable prices and were really good - and this is coming from a bloke!).

Room was basic with a balcony but we were paying for the view and this should be in no way a negative.

On site facilities are kayaks (a deposit of 1000B is needed but then it's 250-300B for 2 hours or so), a professional and accredited diving company as well as a pool table in the social area.

Plenty of seating around the pool, outside the bar above the sandy beach and plenty of towel space for the beach allocated to the hotel.

The food was also divine: seafood BBQ every evening and then a good selection of Thai and some western dishes also to choose from. We ate there every night and this was not only down to the food but the staff-all if not most were from Burma, very keen to share their stories and learn more about you and were genuinely nice people. If nothing else, this made the experience in itself and can't rate them any higher. Highly attentive and very high standards of service.

We had initially only booked two nights due to travelling schedules but after arriving, we paid for another night (paying for the hotel in Samui as well!) so we could enjoy the peace and tranquillity. Definitely the best decision we made on our trip!

Note to Travellers:
Arranging taxi transfers to the ferry port, the only bit of guidance I would add to anyone going to Pangang overall is to ensure if possible, booking a transfer with your hotel of choice whatever it may be: there is a taxi mafia at the port and there is no option to barter, with strict prices for all Taxi's. Although marginally cheaper, it was with Salad's own taxi service and this should be noted for all travellers going to the island, who would prefer to pay smart than pay to the taxi syndicate.
