I can 'rough it' I have travelled a bit, slept in airports etc, but I had to leave in the night after paying a deposit because I didn't want a confrontation with the manager on how awful the room was! There was a massive whole in the bathroom roof and the place was so damp mould was growing on the...

Don't expect to have menus or be offered food or drink unless you chase the staff. The serving staff did not know what a green curry was ( wasn't much cop when it did arrive). Did not have Thai food that was on menu, did not bother to clean tables. Manager surly and uninterested to the point of rudeness. Room...

We stayed in this resort for 6 nights and we didn't like it at all. Understatement;) The first day, the " manager" " Jaco", was simply ignoring us, The guy is Dutch, like us, but he just didn't care at all. When we asked how to get to an ATM, supermarket or restaurant, he simply replied : " uum well...

I stayed at Haad Gruad resort for 5 nights with my boyfriend. The resort is nice in ways but not so good in others. Its location isnt the best, its about a 20 minute walk to the main beach and the dirt track isnt that well lit. The restaurant is ok, perhaps a little overpriced considering the service. The quality...

This place is ran by a bunch of cowboys - literally. What looked to be like a charming and unique holiday setting turned out to be a complete nightmare. The 'resort' is a dirty, badly managed dump with lazy, impolite and intimidating staff. And the manager is basically a thug. He greeted us at arrival with: "the rooms we have...

We just wanted a clean place near a beach and with a pool. It is undoubtedly a very beautiful hotel, which makes the problems all the more annoying, as it could be amazing if it was run properly. Haad Gruad's pool was so murky you couldn't even see the bottom, which was a shame as the sea was too shallow...

Ok, we didn't book a room in advance before we went to PhanGan, so we booked the room at an agency before taking the boat. First of all, the "resort..hahahaha" is located in the middle of nowhere. A dangerous, muddy and long way down. First impression was good, but it was night, also the first impression of the rooms, the...

Decent rooms and bland food, set on an unusable beach, run by a misanthropic and nasty manager. Give credit to the tout -- he sure did trick a lot of decent travelers on that fairy from Don Sak into checking into this miserable "resort." Normally we avoid touts but it was a late, dark ferry ride and we didn't want...

The manager and the guy who rents the mopeds and the lady behind the desk are the worst hotel staff I have come across in all my travels EVER! They are terribly uniterested, twisted, mean, and greedy. I will never stay here again and hope this place goes out of business so that a better owner can come along, change...
