The land of smile , lost the smile. Money money money nothing else and they don't even smile when you pay them. Terrible energy in general. Not on the beach, no wi fi , dirty rooms but the worse is that the guy there is very angry most of the time. Not a good idea to stay there.

My boyfrien and I have booked a double room/bungalow for 10 days over Christmas and new year at Smile Beach Resort. Despite the bad reviews we thought we'll give it a go as the description from the from the management was perfect: 1) "We have Internet cafe and wi-fi" 2) "1-2 minutes walk to beautiful and secluded beach" 3) "You...

Owner will charge for small almost invisible scatches an absurd amount of money. Also expect running water noises that might disturb your sleep in the bungalows. Guy at reception is obnoxious. Overall bad experince and service

No doubts about this place; location is perfect, ambiance is perfect, hygiene is perfect. Just do it! (Just the wifi is a bit of a problem, but the bar at the beach has free wifi so it'll work there) if the full moon party is here you know it's gonna be busy so deal with it, without the party it's...

We stayed here having decided to move to Haad Salad from elsewhere on the island, so we asked at a few resorts to see where we could get a room. We ended up in the smallest ac bungalow here as they didn't have any bigger ones left - it was ok but pretty small, so I'd recommend paying a bit...

For the price we paid I cannot complain, we paid around $10 AUD per night and had a small fan room. The weather was good for the most part so we could avoid being in the room. The restaurant was great value compared to the other restaurant in Haad Salad. Internet was 2 Baht per minute which was disappointing but...

5 of us stayed here in late November 2012 for 5 nights in a 5 bed bungalow. It was a bit of a wash out so we ended up spending most of our time in the restaurant/bar at the Smile Beach resort. The owners were very attentive but not intrusive, the drinks selection was great and so was the food!...

This resort is located on one of the most beautiful beaches on Pha Ngan, which, despite its party reputation, is also home to some of the most marvellous feats of nature in the world. Despite this, it is worth renting a motorbike so you can explore the rest of the island. The roads are hilly and, on the east of...

I stayed here over the Full Moon period with my boyfriend and 2 friends. We got the standard double room. Each of the rooms had a strange smell - a bit stale, as though the rooms hadn't been used in a while. Because I was put in the only room with no window, ventilation was bad and the room was...

We stayed in standard fan room double and it was very nice, for the price we paid. The room is near the beautiful coral reef. The only bad thing is that they don't have fee wifi, but one of the restaurants had it so it was no problem.
