        My favorite beach”

        Good hotel located right on Pangka Bay beach. Bungalows are simple and very nice. Mosquito nets are good. Facilities are very basic. Cold water. Fan. I stayed at the one on the hill and like the view. Restaurant ambience is very nice. Staff is supper helpful. Beach is good for swimming in the morning. The quietest place on the island! However the tide is super low from 2 PM to around 9 pm. Half of the bay is bare seabed. Stayed in Feb and got excellent stay. Please note the Koh Bulone is cash only island with electricity on from 6pm to 6am and the amazing place for those looking for solitude or getaway.

        Panka Bay - away from the beach”

        Panka Bay resort is located 15-20 minutes hike away from the main beach. Location is very peaceful. Cottages are really basic, with a good mosquito net. DeLuxe bungalows are nothing luxury. Only things I miss is a sink at the bathroom & shelf or closet to hang your clothes - room has only one small table to fit couple of things and other things are kept on the floor. Bathroom is really basic, without sink or anything.

        Starting with a positive note, we thought the island was lovely. Very laid back and tropical! Unfortunately the chalet at Panka Bay wasn’t particularly clean and the decor was very tired. The open bathroom vents let in lots of mosquitos and we were unable to shut the bathroom door. Notwithstanding the above, the staff were very helpful and friendly. All in all a below average experience for an above average price.

The staff are suepr lovely and very welcoming. Rooms where good except the shower had low pressure but nothing a bucket can't fix 👍. The main beach is 5 min walking distance the walk is lovely thought the little roads and jungle. Lovely little island in all its Thailand natural essence. I would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

        I booked the Panka Bay because it was the only resort on the island that was on Agoda, unfortunately it dose not have a nice beach and doesn’t have WiFi in rooms as it said it does on Agoda, also it only has electric from 6pm - 6am, the breakfast is very basic you don’t even get butter with your toast and you have to walk for over a kilometre to get to the good beach, I would not stay here again as I found a better place on the beach for cheaper.

        Quiet island, quiet place to stay

        If you look for a quiet place to stay, it is fine. The small houses are simple, but nice view on the bay. The island is small, but lovely. However, to be honest, we had better deals during our stay in Thailand. The stuff spoke just hardly English. The small breakfast was very simple.

        Very basic - not deluxe at all”

        The welcome was friendly and efficient and the staff were helpful at all times. My gripe with this resort is the bungalows need updating. The shower cum toilet is tiny and only has cold water. Every time I went in there I was expecting to have to share it with the local wildlife. .. luckily it was a cute frog rather than something more sinister. There is no basin to wash your hands so you have to use the shower which is not convenient. I'm a cat lover but having cats yowling on my veranda all night doesn't put me in the best of moods. Breakfast was very basic but when I ordered a meal it was delicious. Yes this is a cheap option, and it was clean, the bed was relatively comfortable and bottles water was provided, I was left wishing I had paid more to stay at one of the other resorts.

Deluxe bungalow was okay, rooms were not cleaned but we got bottles of water every day. Power from 6 PM to 6 AM. Through the floor you can see the forest floor and the roof in the bathroom is open (visiting salamanders and frogs)

        Standard bungalow was very substandard”

        For the price I was disappointed. There was nothing to hang clothes on or any drawers. Not even a nail in the door! There was only a bed and a small table in the room. The bathroom door will disintegrate on it's own soon. I would have liked a sink in the bathroom not just a tap sticking out of the wall. I have stayed in much better places for half of this price or less. At nearly £40 a night it was not value for money. The location was good. That's why I stayed on for the time I'd booked.

        Simple accommodation with sea view, very quiet place, nice bed and toilet. Stuff is very nice and polite, great location to have breakfast on the beach. If you want to see the village and the fisherman life you have to walk 5 min, or 15 min to the beautiful beach on the south. You can eat good at Bansulaida restaurant, and take a good drink at the reggae bar in the middle of the island. The most beautiful island that we've been, it has all (turquoise sea, nice people, sea gipsys, nightlife, forests, ...)

        Definitely not Deluxe”

        It's set in a pretty bay - pity that you can't swim on that side of the island. It's rustic rather than deluxe. The lack of hot water, basin in the bathroom and air con was a big disappointment. As was that I was unable to lock my bungalow when I went out. The staff were pleasant enough but their limited English made things difficult. For example they were not able to tell me where I could go snorkelling on the island. They suggested I ask another tourist. Breakfast was very rudimentary, though the ala carte food was good. I think a better and more accurate description of the venue would have lowered my expectations which would have been met. It's rustic, and clean and should be celebrated as such.
