Liked: The place itself was pretty and the walk through the boulders to each cabin was awesome. The beach is nice and the restaurant is moderately priced. The location is really remote so it's nice to get away from all the action especially during Full Moon Party but there is nothing else where this place is so you either have to go all the way to town or stick with what the property provides.

Disliked: The wifi didn't work and there was no cell service. The only way to leave the place was the hire a private taxi which was $30 for every ride which is a bit ridiculous. There is no hot water or AC and the fans they provide are small and don't really do much.

Liked: The bungalows are scattered along the seculded Than Sadet beach, which has a good amount of visitors but not too many. The road to the bungalows are wide and new, but please be careful of the sandy areas! My friend slipped and is now in hospital with 60 stitches.We stayed in the bungalows on the river which were very nice; a balcony, mosquito net for the bed, and a nicely decorated bathroom. Towels, soap and water were provided, which was a nice surprise. The food in the restaurant was pretty good as well!There's also a taxi boat to and from the Full Moon party.While electricity was not always on, during the weekend we were there, the electricity would stay on until late hours of the night (around 4am). Hopefully the owners will be able to provide more electricity since it's important for travellers to charge phones and cameras!

Disliked: The location is a bit far; 35 - 40 mins car/scooter ride from Haad RIn beach (where the Full Moon party and clubs are) and from Thongsala Pier.The rooms were a bit musty and smelt a little bit, and the mosquito net was repaired with band aids, which obviously didnt work!I also think it's necessary to have a hose before the entrance to the rooms to wash off any sand that guests might have on their body.

Liked: mai pen rai bungalows are beautiful and secluded. if you are looking for a very relaxing place with peace and quiet this is where you want to be. if you are more of a city person or need a lot of stimulation, you may only want a few nights here. it is extremely serene and literally past the jungle in koh phangan. there is one restaurant on the beach and it is very good and reasonably priced. the staff was welcoming and helpful.

Disliked: it is good for a short stay

Liked: It was beautiful and the beach was wonderful

Disliked: It is cheap for a bungalow but keep in mind u have to pay AT LEAST 200 baht one way to get anywhere. So far and so far out of the way ... For the money u save staying there it isn't worth it because ts so far and expensive to get anywhere. Also the drinks and food are expensive at Mai pen Rai but u have no choice because there isn't anything else close at all.

Liked: This is the beautiful fantasy beach it claims to be, you couldn't get more character than this, in magical little beach huts. But...

Disliked: People need to be aware that this is very isolated - there is no shop, no regular transport, patchy internet. If you wanted to see the island, you won;t be doing it easily from here. Gazing at the sea is the order of the day...

Liked: Beautiful bungalows built on the side of a mountain in a quiet area away from all the crazy busy party areas, although they do offer both car and boat taxis to and from most parts of the island. The staff were lovely and always friendly, the food is tasty and cheap and it was such a relaxing place we stayed an extra 3 nights.

Disliked: Make sure you pack insect repellent, although they provide nets for the beds if you attract mosquitoes half as much as me it's a good investment.
