Totally rundown place, renovation very necessary, very slow and unfriendly guy sitting at the reception not interested in anyone to stay there, low quality food, just a very sad place next to a beautiful dream - beach, what a pitty! I stayed there a few years ago but nothing changed but everything got even older and worse..

For 800 baht a night, the room here was adequate. More spacious than other bungalows we have stayed it here, with a TV and larger than average bungalow bathroom. The view is lovely, and there are some friendly massage ladies with a massage hut overlooking the bay. That's where the pros here end. The staff - in particular the young... More

We have been all over Southeast Asia and this place by far has the most rude and incompetent and frankly nasty staff that I have ever encountered. When we got in off the late ferry and arrived at the hotel we were immediately made fun of and laughed at by all the members of staff for thinking we could just... More

We were based in Haad Rin and got a shuttle up to visit Koh Ma. We had lunch at Royal Orchid Resort, and it was possible one of our best meals on the trip! We hired our snorkeling gear from the same resort and it was very cheap! The visibility was poor, but it's always luck of the draw. If... More

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.
