Love Tony and Staff!

Tony & staff, the bungalow, breakfast
Tony and his staff really made my stay a great one - he took care of me as if he had known me for years which was so wonderful since I was travelling on my own and this was my first stop. I sometimes had a tough time with the island and the area which had nothing to do with Papillon. I didn't rent a motorbike since I had had an accident and was too nervous to drive one which hindered my exploring abilities sometimes......but Tony was still able to help me figure out some great activities to do. The location is good - its close enough to the beach and the beach has plenty of restaurants and bars. I was there at the very start of high season so it wasn't that crowded but I was still able to meet a few people staying in the other bungalows which was nice as a solo traveller. The food is also pretty good - loved the pancakes! There was one day when wifi didnt work but it was not a huge deal since it worked right next door and it got fixed within a day......and it's really good when it is working. Overall had a really good stay there and love the people - thanks Tony and staff!!

Exactly what we were looking for.

Friendly, relaxed, affordable
Stayed 10 nights at Papillon and thoroughly enjoyed it. Tony and the staff are really friendly and helpful, but never pushy. We stayed in a regular bungalow, which wasn't huge, but was perfectly adequate for the two of us, with a large clean bathroom with hot water shower, and a nice little outside sitting area with that holiday essential - the hammock!. Great wifi in the room (as throughout the resort) and very importantly enough sockets to keep everything charged. Room can be cleaned daily, or on request, and the staff do a great job. Quiet and reliable aircon, and a ceiling fan meant it was nice to be able to switch between the two at different times. I do like a firm mattress, and found the bed to be very comfy. Bungalows are set in a quiet garden with a nice little pool which is perfect for cooling down after a hard day bombing around the island on a bike, and the resort has a nice little restaurant/bar area. Menu wasn't hugely extensive, but what there was, was good (and that was seconded by my boyfriend who is himself Thai). It's just a short little two minute stroll down a little dirt track through the undergrowth, and you find yourself on a beautiful, quiet stretch of beach, with a couple of nice little beach bars/restaurants easily accessible - a great place to sit and relax and catch a few sunsets. I would definitely stay here again.

Peaceful and relaxing

Quite. Good staff. Cute cabins.
Clean, cute cabins, really liked the room and bathroom. Air con worked perfect. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was lovely, 1st tea with milk in a month so nice European touch there, great. I had The pancakes and they were a nice change too. Long beach was a 5-10 min stroll down a raid from next door so a little way off the beach but it was no problem and the owner did say he was making a new path direct from the site, to be ready soon. One sheet on bed so with air con on was a little light but I asked and was provided with a second bedsheet, again no problem. Overall a very quiet place with great accommodation and service. Well worth the money. I would recommend for anyone wanting total peace and quite but there also seemed friendly people walking around if you wanted to chat.

Great stay for good price

Location, Pool, Close to Beach
We enjoyed our stay here. The hotel is a quick walk down the path to the beach and also has a refreshing and clean pool as well. They have a dvd collection for those rainy days or relaxing nights in. The food was good, although somewhat higher priced in comparison, but the complimentary breakfast was good. Great place for a quiet getaway, but location close to everything as well.

Natural location

Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, relaxing nature setting.
My daughter and I stayed for just one night, we were pleased with the room and comfortable beds at a reasonable price. We had no negative issues but moved to a beach side location purely for late night swimming. It isn't a long walk to the beach but a little dark to walk back late.

Great stay

Pool area, nearby beach, DVD library
We enjoyed our time here. Nice pool area. Very relaxing. Staff is friendly and helpful. A/C in the room was powerful. The bed only had a sheet on it, so we woke up a bit cold throughout the night and had to readjust the A/C and fan. But that wasn't a big problem. The nearby beach is really beautiful and peaceful. At night, we enjoyed watching movies from the extensive DVD collection. Nice stay overall. Thank you!!

Very friendly staff and great breakfast

Cheap scooter renting, very very friendly staff, located close by the beautiful beach
Our stay at the Papillon Bungalows was really nice. The atmosphere there is really warm and friendly and in comparison to other accommodation, you can count on the staff, they arrange everything you need and do not cheat on you. We rent a scooter for a day which is a great opportunity to discover the island yourself and we bought our ferry ticket to Koh Jum at the reception. Since we had to leave quite early in the morning, it was no problem for them to prepare our breakfast earlier than it is actually served. The beach is really nice, and at night you can relax at the bar on the beach that is close by.

Nice bungalow place

Very quiet, friendly staff, value for money
Very nice week. We stayed in a family bungalow with two rooms each with very large beds. Good standard and clean. 5 minutes walk to the middle of Long Beach. Very friendly staff. Food in restaurant very good but I personally would like more choices for breakfast.
