I got free upgrade so that I did not have to climb stairs to room because of disabilities
Good resort with clean rooms. We did expect a more luxourious room but it was clean (we had the standard hotel room) and big so we were happy! Right next on a pretty beach and good breakfast. Perfect Thai Massage right on the beach, part of the hotel. Ask for On! (that's her name).
We didn't think the food in the restaurant (hotel) was that good, a bit boring. Eating on the beach was great, but the food was a dissapointment. They staff had a music installation on the beach and one night they played loud urban music, which didn't really fit with the sound of the beach and the relaxed resort atmosphere.
beach view (from restaurant, pool), fairly clean
not welcoming, money-driven staff (particularly elderly lady running the place and dominating everything/-one): a) had to pay full reservation price in advance (even before seeing the room), b) resort is very remote and far away from supermarkets such as seven eleven (1h walk). the resort supermarket (operated by hao yaad) charges 250%-500% higher prices than seven eleven. c) air conditioner only cools room down to 28degrees (says 18degrees on display, but didn't work). fan works ok d) fatty breakfast - no buffet (even though I booked it). limited a la carte (one is only allowed to order once p.p. and only one egg-dish), no milk, cereal or dark (=healthy) breads. e) staff didn't help when I needed emergency transport to koh samui hospital
The beach was nice and the rooms were comfortable. The rooms were private and quite big.
Our room was infested with ants, our air conditioner didn't work and the vans used for shuttle broke down and were very dangerous considering the price. The staff spoke poor English.
Good value for money, nice pool and friendly personel
Our view wasn't that great.
The Staff was quite nice and the guy at the welcome desk funny. We stayed there for 6 days and it was ok, some points to notice (see downstairs) but not horrible
the breakfast was fat and limited, everyday the same 4 dishes (no cereals, yorgurt). Impossible to swin in the sea (not deep enough until rocks - 100m away). No elevator but tiring stairs (though not that impossible to do!). Stains on sheets and towels (though the room was made everyday and quite clean). Location Excentred (but ok if you rent a motorbike).
With a stay at Haad Yao Bay View Resort and Spa in Ko Pha-ngan, you'll be on the beach, steps from Haad Yao Beach and a 3-minute drive from Salad Beach. Featured amenities include dry cleaning/laundry services, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. A roundtrip airport shuttle and a ferry terminal shuttle are provided for an additional charge.
