don't go there”
worst hotel I have ever been super dirty, old.... full of animals in the cabins, mosquitos,geckos (aluve and dead), dirty and broken sheets.... there is nothing around only the beach pool wasnt very clean either never coming back
Nice and comfortble”
Staying here for a week in a standard room, and it was standard to say, but everything you needed, all rooms with a balcony so it was excellent. Great if you are travelling, and an excellent location onto a very beautiful beach. I would recommend staying here if visiting for a week or two, great and quiet location also.
Very nice hotel”
It never happens, but it happened now - this guesthouse looked better in reality then online. No bad things to say about this place, everything is at it should be - the pool, the staff, the free shuttle to the pier, the restaurant (a bit pricy but good quality and VERY nice staff), the rooms,... Recommend!!
one of the best hotels all around”
the food at the restaurant was so good we ate most of our meals there. the staff was as friendly as you get and they were always helpful! the location of the hotel was right on the beach and very close to the main part of the island for shopping and spas. the pool was wonderful to relax at and if i go back to koh phangan i will definitely stay at this resort again!
Good hotel , Nice beach Can walk from the Pier”
In hotel Motorbike rental fee 250 , But they suggest to walk a bit and you'll got per day nearby. Bike is 100 baht a day. Nice beach , very cool breeze at night time Food is only for Foreigner , No Thai Food The villa is also nice but I stayed inside the building
beautiful banana garden ”
we thoroughly enjoyed our stay except for one thing: the bathroom was so smelly! every time we turned the shower on it stank of sewage. as long as you close the bathroom door after youve finished in the shower, then you should be ok. except this, everything was perfect. lovely garden with banana trees, swimming pool right next to the beach, nice breakfast included in the morning.
Beautiful resort on the beach”
we really enjoyed staying in dakanda resort. the staff were exceptionally friendly and made us feel very welcome. the room was beautiful and very clean. there's a big garden next to the pool which is very well maintained. the beach is a few metres from the pool. we have already extended our stay here twice since arriving! the restaurant, whilst not being the cheapest, serves great food. highly recommended!
Avoid this hotel at all costs !!!”
This hotel is TOXIC !! They bomb their rooms with a perfumed concoction to cover up molds. fungus and odors, and with no screens on doors and windows, to kill all insects. The smell is overwhelming and settled poisons won't go away. As a health professional I know that when any human breaths these poisons all night long its damaging to one's health. After at least 100 hotel stays in Asia, I've never been to a hotel that was more toxic than the DaKanda. I got an instant headache and nausea. When I asked for my money back it was denied. I had to walk away to find another hotel. If you read this and still book a room at this hotel you'd be foolish. People have died in hotels in Thailand who bomb their rooms with toxins like this.
Best resort ever!!!!”
We stayed at Da Kanda for our honeymoon from August 23-26, 2018 and again from August 28-September 1, 2018. We left in between to head farther south on Koh Phangan for the full moon party and planned to go to another island, however our initial stay was so incredible all we wanted to do was go back! The beach was the best we encountered on the entire island (and we scootered around about half of it), the staff, especially Nan and Yu, were the friendliest and most accommodating hosts you could ask for, and the resort ambience was unparalleled. We travelled during a low season and had the beach and entire resort to ourselves much of the time. We spent the days playing cards on the balcony of our beachfront villa, walking the beautiful beach, and swimming in the perfect pool. We truly couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing, beautiful, and memorable honeymoon spot. When we returned the second time Nan and Yu knew we were coming back due to our reservation and made sure we had the BEST villa at the resort. They put sweet smelling flowers and swan towels on our bed and lovingly showed us to our room with huge smiles. It was an unforgettable trip and we will absolutely return. We are so grateful to have chosen this resort and it continues to be the best decision we made while in Thailand.
Great value for your money”
So far nothing to complain, the only thing is the toilet I guess its mounted the wrong way you have to climb over it :)
Very nice and good price. And i close walking to everything in thongsala.
The room was nice. The resort located near the street market, however it was very far from the Fullmoon party. The beach was quiet and peaceful at night. I was very impressed with their nice staff. They were great and very helpful.
Basic & run down”
Stayed here for 2 nights. Pre booked which was a shame as we would've moved out after the first night. The room was barely furnished with concrete bedside table & seat. Bathroom was also concrete but not even painted. The shower was pathetically powered and there was water dripping from the bedroom aircon unit into the shower. The pool looked as if it hadn't been cleanes at all & the pool loungers were well outdated and dirty. Do not be fooled by the website photos. They were probably when it first opened. Would not recommend.
rude owners ”
Nice room and roomy bathroom, but don't be fooled its called a resort - it's far from that! Fan is not going to cut it, it is really hot in the room. Internet connection in room 3 wasn't working properly, you had to type the password again and again and if lucky, it worked for 2 minutes - the worst internet connection in one month of traveling in SE Asia. The reservation through agoda was having a little sign the room has A/C, after checking with the most inpolite older couple (owners) we found out it is only a fan room. Shower has a weird current, it took ages to wash the soap off. We wanted to get a ferry+bus combo to Krabi since there was a pricelist in the room. We found out the prices changed from 800 to 900B (without drop-off). We got it for 850 in the first travel agency with drop off at the pier, with no bargaining. Owners are really rude and wouldn't recommend staying there.
We loved Dakanda it is in an area away from the craziness but close enough to access easily. The staff was awesome they helped us with everything and made sure we were enjoying our selves. The restaurant was a little slow but that’s been pretty common in Thailand as a whole. Other than that if my wife are ever down that way again we will be checking into Dakanda.
Beautiful location, underwhelming facilities”
I had the Beach villa which was an incredible location directly on a quiet beach. Room was spacious and comfortable. Restaurant had decent food at reasonable prices considering location. Staff is very friendly. Main complaint is that the facilities are a bit outdated. The TV is an old CRT and the shower must be 10 years old and trickled our warm not hot water. For the price, I’d expect a hot shower. Overall it’s a nice place with a good location.
First the location. It is max 15min walk from pier and the centre of Thong Sala so you can save money on taxi. The bungalow itself is really spacious with huge bed, wardrobe and a sofa. The bathroom is also big with separate shower and a bath. The air-con works great which is sometimes problematic in Thailand (no too cold not to hot). The ocean is just a few steps from the bungalow, at the beach there are resort's sun loungers on which you can lay down. The water is calm and not too deep (reaches the waist of adult man) which is perfect for family with children. It is also a great place for kitesurfing. The dishes at the restaurant are tasty and if you want you can order a dinner to you room and eat it at your terrace and admire the breathtaking view of the ocean. At the resort there are scooter rental and travel agency what is very comfortable. When it comes to staff this requires a longer description. The lady at the reception was extremely helpful, always smiling and was speaking English really good. We would like to thank her for all her help after our scooter accident in which we were injured. She was asking all the time if we need anything, is everything is ok, she arranged us a discount for the damage of the scooter, let us stay beyond check out hour while we were waiting for a ferry and what is more, she also arranged us a transport to the pier. She is lovely person and because of her attitude towards us it will be a great pleasure to visit this place again in the future. We sincerely recommend this resort.
Nice resort at the beach”
Nice place to relax a few days at the beach. Staff trying to be helpful, not always successful. Got also some Internet problems. Daily beach cleaning, pretty shallow water to go for a swim ... Good location for most activities in the evening.
+ Lived in the most basic bungalow for three nights and it was clean, insect free. Nice pool, RIGHT on an OK beach, great little restaurant where we tried both breakfast and dinner. Hired us bikes for 250 B. Free shuttle to the pier. Helpful staff when booking onward travel. - Clogged sink in the bathroom. Very week wifi signal in the room, a lot better in the restaurant.
