This place was the highlight of our trip to Koh Phangan. The hotel is very service oriented, with the friendliest staff we've seen in Thailand. You get a free transportation from the pier or from your previous hotel. We booked only one night but ended up staying for a week - it was so good. We ordered the most basic room but decided to upgrade it to superior which was totally worth the $5 difference. If you book for 3 nights and above, there is a discount.
The restaurant is beautifully set up right on the beach and has probably the best food on the island, breakfast is yummy, BBQ is just delicious. The lounge area is cozy and relaxing. You can play pool, ping pong, badminton, all free of charge.
The beach is not the best on the island but there is a pool and the atmosphere in the hotel totally compensates for it. The location is good, quiet but a short ride to many parties and other points of interest. We rented a bike for the first time in our life and it was a great experience on its own, the roads in the area are flat and safer than in Haad Rin and north east/west. The central road to Chaloklum and Malibu beach (central north) is just gorgeous and also flat.
The manager deserves particular gratefulness - the guy helped us so much with so many things. Whether it concerned our stay in the hotel or other issues, his helpfulness was beyond what you would normally expect from a hotel manager. Pond, thank you so much!
Overall, you get the greatest value for money and we would recommend this hotel to everyone, and will definitely be back some time.
