Unbelivable! The rooms are dirty and the whole stuff is unfriendly. The food in the restaurant is very expensive and its not the quality you expect. There are muuuch nicer bungalows on phangan. The only thing we loved about that place were the beautiful souls of dogs!!

I've been to this resort (just because it's called resort) with two of my friends. As soon as we arrive it didn't really look so bad, a part of the road to get there, it was very damage. I highly suggest you to don't go there driving. As soon as we met the first person of the staff, we understood...

My boyfriend and I were excited when we checked into Great Bay. It is tucked back in a secluded area right next to the beach. They offer Bungalows with A/C for about 800 Baht (which are further back from the beach and the resort pool and are quieter) and rooms with A/C for 600 Baht, which is what we rented...

As we got to the hostel we experienced the staff's bad attitude. Not hospitable to say the least! On check in, we had several questions which the staff didn't had any patience to answer to. They demanded we'd pay up front, and deposit 1000(!) baht for the key. They read to us a list of how much we'd had to...

everything here was overpriced, food, room, not a very good environment. DO NOT RENT MOTORBIKES HERE. Was charged 6,500 baht for a very small scratch. This place is not recommendable, stay anywhere else.

The place and location are really pretty but the food is overpriced and not that good. Also the lady at the desk attempted to withhold our key deposit after we gave her the key because we couldn't find the receipt.

Dante once took a walk through the infernal cesspit that is hell, but he thanked his lucky stars every step of the way that he wasn't staying in the Great Bay resort. The woman behind reception is the dark lord lucifer himself disguised as a small Thai woman. They are the most unfriendly staff I have ever encountered: the Austrian...

I feel bad for anyone that has to spend anytime around this staff. If you book here, and are then reading this afterward, just take it as a loss and leave. This place isn't worth a moment of your time and the food will leave you feeling sick. We've had the most amazing experiences all over Thailand, and this happens...

We made a judge mistake by stopping by for a quick lunch on the beach today. The staff is rude, the bartender borderline aggressive and has no idea what he's doing (can't make a cocktail because "you know man, there's nothing to make a cocktail here, this is Thailand") and food is close to Panda Express quality. My advice is...
