We didn't have anything booked in Phangan for the New Year's period and were looking for somewhere to stay for few hours driving around the island on a rented motorbike. We found this and for 1000 bhat for a AC double room on the beach, we thought we got a bargain.
The rooms are very old and not very clean. They do not provide mosquito nets and they don't clean the rooms at all during your stay. We stayed for 5 nights! If you don't clean your bathroom for that long in this country... Well, it stinks! Everybody who visited Thailand knows what I mean.
The restaurant is ok, not great, but will do. There are other restaurants on the beach if you don't like this one anyway.
The resort does not have it's own beach, it is located just in front of the sea but there is no beach here (although it is just few meters away, so no problems here).
They have motorbikes to rent, that is a huge plus.
You should stay somewhere else is you can. The beach is not that great and is quite far away from everything. I recommend Salaad Beach very close to Mae Haad.
