“So much more than expected”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

After reading some posts I was worried about this place. The staff was friendly and very helpful. I found they didn't speak much English but did all they could to make sure they helped. The breakfast that was included was great for the price of the place. My friends and I loved the fact you could walk along the nearby beach to explore different restaurants and even send a lantern into the sky at night. There are a few bars outside the resort but its not the same as Lonely Beach. So its not the party part of town but we used the Island taxis to have nights out. I would go back again.

Room Tip: I would say to get a room with AC. Even if you wont need it. The rooms with fans are up on the hill...

Depending on what you're looking for, this can be the perfect location. Myself and two friends stayed in one of the air conditioned bungalows and found the proximity to a nice beach and to the main road perfect for us.

The restaurant served an adequate breakfast (though we would suggest getting the pancake breakfast rather than any of those with eggs) with unlimited tea, coffee, juice, water, and pineapple along with your main course. We snagged dinner there once, as well, and were pleased with the food.

Despite what other reviews have said, we had no problems with bugs. We did, however, have an issue with the toilet. It wasn't "broken" so much as "it took about 20 good flushes to get anything non-liquid down it without having the entire bungalow smell like poop". We just got used to having to spend a nontrivial amount of time fighting our poo down into the bowels of whatever septic system they utilize there.

However, the internet functioned well the whole time we were there, the front office staff organized a boat tour for us without a hitch, and the air conditioning worked beautifully. Overall, for the price, it's a great location (fairly centrally located on the west side of the island) and a clean, cool place to stay. You can't ask for much more!

Room Tip: If you can, grab one of the bungalows closer to the ocean. It'll make for a shorter walk and a b...

Don't hire a boat from this office based on beach.
We booked a private speed boat for 2 of us. We were told that the boat would be 3 years old and the driver would speak good English. When we finally saw this wooden boat it was disgusting and about 30 years old. Broken windscreen, torn seat cushions, most paint flaked off.
Driver was extremely young and spoke virtually no English. We were not offered any lifejackets although we could see some when they opened a cupboard. Felt very unsafe on this boat. We refused to go out on boat and got told they would change the boat. When we saw the other choice of boat it was no different. Eventually got 3/4 of money returned but was a spoilt disappointing day.

Well, that isn't exactly the best place where you wish to sleep given that the rooms are literally inside the jungle with all kind of noises from god knows what animals, and a few late night parties on the beaches and the chance to find a huge gecko inside your bed on, most certainly, bathroom. But you know what, it's cheap, nice and most of the time you'd be around the island with ur scooter and the time spent the bungalow is really, really small. Furthermore they serve a great breakfast on a lovely restaurant on the water....c'on, if i made it, you can make it too :-) Be sure to have a few anti-mosquitos (or ant other species) on you and close the door...monkeys may ask you for some company...

Room Tip: Ask for the sea-front room as they are located a farther from the main road and the noise from bars.

I stayed five nights following a sleepless night due to a full moon party at Lonely Beach. I also managed to negotiate a 100 Bhat discount on the room.
My room was a sea front, air conditioned concrete bungalow. It was clean and tidy with tv (only Thai, Germanand French channels) and fridge. Due to the location, there is not much you can do about the insects but the room is well sealed with mesh over all the windows. To counter this problem, just spray the room thoroughly, close the door and go for a beer...problem solved.
On the third evening, speakers, chairs and tables were being assembled outside my front door, this was for a private party and I was assured the music would stop bt 10 pm. That evening the boom boom of the speakers started at 6:00 so I went for a meal then a few beers, returning at 11:00. The music had stopped but the guests were playing games with one particular lady screaming like a banshee. This went on until after midnight. At 6:00am it all started again with the guests congregating outside and making a noise until their bus collected them at 8:00.
I mentioned this to my neighbours who had complained to the management and were fobbed off.
What should have been very pleasant stay has been soured by this episode and the uncooperative attitude of the staff.

Our travel agent booked us in here and the brochure made this place look tidy. It wasn't sadly and we left within an hour to another far superior hotel.

We arrived to our room to the sight of excrement still in the toilet which left a terrible smell throughout the room.

The rooms as expected were basic which wasn't really the issue. We immediately asked to change room which we did but again it proved basic and just nothing like advertised. I'm more than happy to 'slum it' but mentally we were prepared for a far nicer stay than what we got.

Very disappointing but thankfully our decision to upgrade to Amari Hotel 2 doors down was the best decision we made all trip and I'd much rather pay another £30 a night for luxury like that.

Poor

the room was horrible, rat or mice poo on bed and floor, ants crawling around everywhere and the toilet was actually full of water and overflowing slowly. i checked out after less than 20minutes after arriving!
staff did not speak much english either, and were rather unfriendly.
i walked about 20minutes southwards down the road and checked into a much nicer place called golden place.
