“Beautiful location, nice rooms”
Reviewed 29 March 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 3 nights in the sea view villa. The room itself was very nice and spacious with a gorgeous outdoor shower. There were some large spaces under doors which allowed a cockroach to sneak in. So we had to shove towels under all the doors. The beach is amazing and beautiful, quiet and great for swimming. The pool there is the perfect temperature, however there are no chairs/ area to sit by the pool. We ate at the restaurant once and were not impressed with the food and ate elsewhere the rest of the time. The staff also were not very friendly compared to other places we stayed. We would go back simply for the beauty of this place but with the understanding to not expect much in the way of service/friendliness.

I spent 7 nights at Candle Hut Resort in a bungalows. The room is simple but the view is exceptional and at night we can hear the noise of the waves. The fact to have an hamac on the balcony is nice but it should put some long chairs also. Windows should be cleaned and the curtains. The beach is very nice but for people who is looking for a little activity it is very quiet, nothing in the small town. It is very dark at night and there is no restaurant in the small town so you have to stay and eat to the restaurants at the beach and it is quite boring after 7 days. In resume, the beach is very clean and nice but there is nothing to do from 6:30pm when it is becoming dark unlessw you have a transportation to your disposal. Transport is quite expensive.

Room Tip: many bungalows have seaview

Stayed for just a few nights and it was nice enough....but found it to be overpriced in comparison to other locations in Koh Phangan. We were rather disappointed in the lack of friendliness of the restaurant staff and the need of TLC in the bungalow. The location and view and layout of the bungalows is great, but the overall upkeep is lacking...huge gaps in the doors and windows allowing in bugs; moldy, stained curtain in the shower; stained curtains; there is only a curtain separating the room from the toilet; and they could definitely use REAL coffee in the restaurant, not instant. Nice to be on the beach and it's great that the bungalows are well spaced out and breakfasts was good and included.....but they need new deck chairs and could use real chairs around the pool, not just beanbags, and there are too many kids in the pool, but that's just a personal observation. Great location on Thong Nai Pan Yai and close enough to all other locations on the beach for food and drinks.

I've been coming here since 2002 and even though some of the huts are getting worn out it is still a great place to stay! I stayed in the older bamboo huts and the prices are much higher than a few years ago but the staff is still breast and the restaurant is still my favourite on the beach! It was a bit noisy on the weekend but quiet all other nights. Still can't believe these resorts all have pools now (the ocean is rich in front of you!) but people seemed to enjoy it. Overall a nice stay but with the prices getting high I may look elsewhere on my next visit.

Stayed one week on 111 banglow right in front of the beach and it was perfect, pretty cheap, the swimming pool was clean and the room was simple but with the ocean and the moon from the bed, simple is perfect!

We loved our stay at the candle hut.
The rooms are very nice the pool is big all the area is very spacious, you can see the beach from everywhere. The restaurant area is so nice and to eat breakfast there is great.
The staff is so nice and friendly and it make all the guests friendly and all the atmosphere is relaxing as it should be.
We wish we could be there again.

Room Tip: if you are a family there are rooms with another room inside. check them out if you want some privac...

I brought 70 people here for my wedding and we all had the most amazing time. Naklop and Noo were amazingly nice and helpful for the year leading up to the event. They went far above and beyond to make the trip amazing for us and all our guests.

This isn't a 5-star resort but it's clean, nice, and friendly. The rooms right on the beach were amazing. I love the outdoor showers. The bar was fun and the staff was very nice. The food was great. The location is ideal and they helped us out with travel and activities.

You should stay here.

Room Tip: The beach front rooms are great. The concrete rooms are better than the wooden.
