“Best hotel we stayed in”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

We stayed in this hotel for the full moon party, It was quite far out from the party however it was very sercluded and had beautiful surroundings and the hotel arranged taxis for all guests going to the party for only 200 baht! very cheap!

We planned on staying in the hotel only 2 nights at first however loved it so much we stayed 4 nights! and I dont think this would have happened if it wasnt for the extremely polite and helpful staff! we had a fab time... they even turned the lights on for us to go swimming at 11pm at night when we'd been drinking, complimentary cocktails and alot of beautiful relaxing memories.

I've got to say what made it for me in particular was one particular male staff members - I called him Mr Happy because come rain or shine he was permantly with a smile on his face and a pleasure to chat to.

The food at the hotel was amazing, that good we didnt end up going to the little beach bar/resturant right down the bottom... steak was always a winner and at a bargin price.

The rooms were not amazing but standard rooms and ones you would typically expect in thailand, we had stayed in alot worse but the surroundings and the hotel itself was that beautiful it honestly made it. I would quite happily go back to thailand and spend 2 weeks just in that beautiful hotel.

My dream of the Thai islands came true on Koh Phangan at this resort. For $30 CA we got a lovely villa on the beach - which when we went was basically our own and deserted. The best thing about Haad Son is the pier they have - a picturesque stone walkway over the water with hammocks at the end of it. You can jump off it!
It was quiet when we went (Monsoon season) so the beach bar they have wasn't open too much but we still had a mean pad thai there.

Only complaint I had was the front desk clerk FORGOT to book our taxi on the day of our departure. We almost missed our ferry and a flight and lost a few hundred dollars because she was asleep and made this huge mistake. Quite the ordeal!

Haad Son Resort was GREAT! The resort has it's own private beach and the staff were very lovely and helpful. I was traveling with a group of 10 friends and none of us had one bad thing to say about the resort!

We stayed here for 8 days and had a great time!

Good food, relaxed atmosphere, great snorkelling and the best ocean-view ever (from room number 408).

One point for improvement (as others have mentioned): Cleaning!
Rooms are cleaned every 2 or 3 days (and cost 2500 baht!). You would expect better for that price. Especially since you are expected to dump the toiletpaper in a bin... Which starts getting smelly after a couple of days...

When complaining about the frequency and quality (we even found somebody else' dirty underwear under the bed and some rodents poo) of cleaning the response was: "Yes we get that complaint a lot".

When asking whether they are thinking about doing something about the complaints the response was: "The cleaners are on a holiday".

When asking whether they should maybe think about hiring more cleaners the response was: "No, we have enough cleaners, but they are on a holiday"...

The staff are friendly and have service mind although their English is limited. Good location to escape from the crowded community and chaotic beaches like Haad Rin. Bad thing is that we cannot swim in the sea in front of the resort due to plenty of coral reef and stones.

Room Tip: deluxe rooms are expensive, but it's worth for panoramic sea view and fresh air from the ocean.

Stayed there for 5 nights and found it to be at a good location and the rooms were clean and tidy. Not the easiest place to get around with suitcases but the staff were friendly and helpful. Nice to have a bar next door on Secret beach with sensible drink prices. Transport to and from Ferry terminal a bonus. A scooter allowed us to see cheaper and better hotels further up the Island but would recommend this hotel for short stays only

pick up from the pier was great, reception and booking by the staff, which speak english were excellent. You have access to wi fi in the main building, breakfast was alla carte but great, we asked for extra cofee in the morning without extra charge. Access to the private beach and restaurant, hammocks on the sea shore if you would like to "just chill". Great allround atmosphere. An excellent resort for less baht.

Room Tip: Rooms on the beach and even the sea facing bungalows are great
