What a place”
Amazing value for money, Staff were all amazing - very welcoming and polite. Pool is a decent size. The hotel is located on the beach front so the views are amazing - especially the sunset wow! Only negative - the gym is very poor. I have seen better gyms in war prisons. Despite this, I personally do not go to gym so this did not affect me whatsoever. Who wants to gym on holiday any? All in all - this place was incredible value for money and the staff were great.
Not too bad”
We stayed when there were no parties going on and it was pretty quiet but that was okay for us. The room was cheap and very large. The bed was mostly comfortable just the pillows were made of a leather material so it wasn’t too comfortable and in my opinion it didn’t smell clean. So maybe bring your own pillow. Other than that we had a great time and the bar/restaurant has reasonably priced food like (60-70 baht) and during happy hour (5-7pm)reasonably priced beers I think 60 baht. We had a good time!
We are satisfied every time”
-Peaceful garden and clean rooms -staff sometimes busy but try to be friendly -Pool is clean and kitchen is cheap&tasty! -the best too rate in KPG between FMP Recommend for budget stay with old team!)
Great place to enjoy your stay”
Overall really great place to stay. Pool, good food, scooter rental, views etc. Everything already dated but if you use all possible promotions they have (for scooters, for bungalow rental, food/drinks etc), you stay here for pretty good price. Really worth to stay and enjoy beautiful sunset sitting by the pool. P.S. Internet can be annoying, but possible to work.
We booked for 2 nights initially but expended our stay for one more night because we loved it! and probably because of the low season it was a great value for money/quality service. Initially we were accommodated in the ac room next to the restaurant and the beach but because of the music till 23.00 we asked to change the room and we're located at the very end without any disturbing noise in the evening. So the staff was very helpfull and efficient. We had wonderful 150 bhat massages (250-300 on the island), very resonably priced meals at the restaurant and 150 Bhat moto bike rent on site (250 on island), which was great. The room it's self quite basic but clean and spacious. Nothing to expect more for a such price! And just 10 min walk to the beautiful Haad rin beach! Recommend it very much!
Great location and staff ”
We had a great stay at coral. The location was great and the staff was amazing. Very special thanks to Sunny who took time to talk with us and recommended a schedule for our coming days. He’s a star. Only two downsides which are that the bathroom was dirty and the deposit at check in was very high, 5000 baht while most places we stayed where it was normally 1000.
great value and facilities ”
checked in for 5 nights and ended up staying almost a month due to some unforseen circumstances. the price outside of full moon is great, and outside of the party nights it's pretty relaxed. bungalows are clean and and has everything you need. I would reccomend the air con over the fan room. the bar/restaurant is reasonably priced and the menu is extensive and just about everything on there is worth trying! there is dishes from all over the world and they make them well! great pool and right next to the beach. And all of the staff are friendly and speak great English. If you're coming for the full moon party or other parties then I would also reccomend it as the place is full on these nights and has a great atmosphere. we weren't happy about staying on the island for so long but this place definitely softened the blow!
One of the best in Phangan”
we stop in the CORAL many times - the main thing is not to do it during the FMP period. We are satisfied with the price and quality of services: restaurant, massage, swimming pool, beach ... Take a passport as a deposit for the period of residence - do not spoil the property! It is desirable to have a bike for movements.
Had the best stay at Coral Bungalows, room was clean and huge with a double bed and single bed for 2 of us. The hotel restaurant had loads of choice and food was really nice every night. The staff were lovely and couldn’t do enough to help. Hotel is about a ten min walk from the main area of Haad Rin but it’s well lit and there are always people about. Stayed over the Half Moon party and taxis were organised for us. Would definitely stay again as it was the best value for money.
very old, good value for money”
the place is very old, it runs like a military facilities, you need to sign for every thing for example that you checked your front door and its not broken :-), the towels i got are in a very bad condition. but the value for money is great, its a quite place and a good location. there are parties in the place, need to ask when. i think i will not come back again to that place, but never say never.
good place, good owner and staff ,good time here”
This bungalow full fill my trip, there have all I needed very friendly owner and staff with lovely service amazing location, spending my time at the pool and restaurant which close to the beach, seeing sunset and sky change its color with favorite music I also got voucher for free breakfast, the meal very tests good and cheap
Great Place, Great Price”
They have strict policy of passport for deposit , probably because there’s a lot of young people that already destroyed the place in the past. But as long as you check the room and keep it in good condition - you’ll enjoy your stay !
We had a nice stay. Restaurant is good and pretty cheap prices too, we went 3 times during our stay. Staff at the restaurant was nice and friendly. We booked the aircon room as it was the only available online, then decided to extend our stay but moving to a fan room as we didn't need the air con. The room was big, a bit dark and with only 1 electricity plug. You can book ferry tickets at their travel agency for a good price. The pool area is nice and you can see an amazing sunset every night. Staff at the front desk was a bit unorganized but try to do their best to satisfy our needs. You need to leave your passport at reception along with 300 key deposit. You can rent motorbikes for 250 bath a day. We didn't go during full moon so prices were affordable. There was a pool party while we were day but we disnt attend as my partner was with the flu, we wete able to sleep well. We had a nice stay.
Awesome value for money!! ”
This place is insanely good compared to it's price! Rooms are clean and everything works! There is an awesome swimming pool and its right on sunset beach! The resturant is affordable and cooks pretty good western food! The beach unfortunately gets submerged during the day but comes out again in the evening as the tide goes out! Can recommend this to anyone!
Coral Bungalows is definitely recommended at its in the heart of Kho Phangan and every party is pretty much a walk away. It was just unfortunate that it was a raining season which spoilt half the fun..;)
Cool spot near the full moon party”
We really enjoyed our stay here. Its close enough to walk to haad rin (where the full moon parties are) and far enough that it's quiet. Its got the friendly vibe of a hostel but is a good step up from a dorm room. Each room has a double and single bed, so you can split the room between 3 ppl if you really want to save money. We opted for the ac room and were very glad we did. It was very comfortable. There are two fans on the ceiling that are independently controllable as well as an ac unit, so you won't be uncomfortable. The bathroom was pretty standard except that there is actually hot water (not the ubiquitous suicide (electrical unit) shower). So we were pleased. There is a restaurant with a huuuuge variety of options, though this makes everything sort of mediocre. The portions were a little small and they charge separately for rice so the cheaper items are a little deceptive. The pool is great and most importantly, the drinks are STRONG. A mojito bucket is 250 baht and there is about a third of a bottle of liquor in it! We stayed in 3 different bungalows on koh phangan and this was BY FAR the best. Highly recommended. Rent a motorbike when you get off the ferry (150 baht per day) so you don't have to take a taxi there and back (100 each way).
Perfect Place for the FMP or for the Party Animals”
We stayed at Coral for two nights over the Full Moon Party. This is the PERFECT PLACE for young party Animals!! But that comes at a cost! The front desk demands everyone's Passports ( For any damage caused to the rooms), and as we had rented scooters we did not have have all our passports, so we had to pay 6000Baht per passport missing! I found this very unreasonable and the staff we rude about the situation. However after seeing how trashed and out of hand some people get, I now understand why. The Rooms were really Basic (a bit dingy to be honest) but for the price and the location it was worth it for the full moon party (FMP). Wifi could only be reached by the restaurant and not in the rooms The Restaurant was absolutely fantastic! Amazing food and great staff! Coral Really put in alot of effort to make the build up to the FMP a memorial one! We were able to walk from our hotel to the FMP and walk home after the Jol! The Pool is pretty awesome, however there is no swimming after 8pm, and there are camera's and if they catch you (which they will!!) its a fine of 2000Baht! There is no swimming beach here either as there are fishing boats (but you can dip in to cool off!). Overall this place was perfect for the FMP, 2 nights were more than enough. It has great locations for the Party Animals, a nice pool, good food and lots and lots of young drunk people!
Good but possibly not for everyone!”
Fantastic location and good value for money for the 'Home of the Original Pool Party'. Less than 10 min walk to Haad Rin beach and right on the sunset beach. Clean pool and lots of space to chill, either in the bar, restaurant or poolside. The pool party was a bit tame when we were there (due to alcohol restriction on a Buddhist holiday) but wouldn't have been bothersome from a noise and sleep point of view, as the bungalows are set back from the pool. Staff were helpful enough and very inoffensive - not sure quite how some reviewers had a bad experience with them! The main drawback to the place is the bungalow rooms themselves - pretty poor efforts have been made to keep them clean, stained bedsheets, walls in need of painting. I can only speak for the fan room but it got pretty hot and sticky two of the nights. Fortunately the windows/mozzie mesh were effective at keeping insects out. Also the bathroom was decent enough. Overall I'd stay again!
The staff was horrible. On the last day when we returned the motorbikes, they had a misunderstanding between the staff of the pool and the reception and they where screaming at me and making me speak with the staff of the pool and after going back to reception to get my passport back. Don’t go there, it will only stress you out and make you feel mistreated. They didn’t clean our room any day. And the sheets stank of sweat. Disgusting...
Staff Diabolical, Awful and Unhelpful.”
The rudest staff I have ever met at any resort. These are not the Thais I’ve come to know and love over several years of travel to Thailand. These people were aggressive, unhelpful and downright rude, even laughing in our faces and amongst each other at us. I had a disagreement with one member of staff over the fact they rented us a motorbike with a BALD front tyre, when I complained about it and said I would not be paying for it, due to the fact we nearly fell off this shoddy bike, he threatened me with the fact he had my passport, even holding it up, smiling and waving it in my face to taunt me. After a very heated exchange between us, he even told me he would get someone to kill me. Absolutely horrific, would never return. The one member of staff we absolutely loved was Davis, aka Danny Dyer. As it turns out, he’s not even Thai, he’s from Myanmar, which sums this resort up. The Thai staff here are the worst I’ve ever encountered and multiple people agreed.
