Wang Sai Mae Haad: "Give this place a miss- one big building site" Ko Phangan Hotel Tip by traceyspacey

Ko Phangan Hotels: 90 reviews and 123 photos

We were recommended this place by our friends who had been a while back. We arrived and found that the garden resembled a building site. They are in the process of knocking down the traditional beach bungalows and replacing them with unattractive imposing concrete bungalows. We were first shown a medium size wooden bungalow up on the hill that was for 600b for fan only. It wasn't worth it. We asked if they had anything for less that was away from the building site and noise. They just left us there and ignored us. Yes, they do have cheaper bungalows but you are right next to the building site. We certainly did not feel welcome.

This place is featured in the most recent Lonely Planet (August 2007). It makes it sound great. It is nothing like the description with the exception of the boulder.

We have found a better deal down the road, which I will put on asap.
