The bar is right on the beach and offers free sun beds during the day (you must buy drinks from them to use the beds) The drinks are good value and the iced fruit shakes taste great - mango one is v good. I would not bother with the food though,we ate there once and didn't bother again. Whilst it... More

A large beach side bar with much to offer. You can use the sun beds and parasols free of charge. There is also a small swimming pool upstairs which you can sit around. There is a fire show every night at 8pm which was impressive. The only negative to speak of was the food. As in much of Thailand there... More

This place has terrible customer service. We came in during happy hour and we were sat down with menus. After waiting 10 mins to be served, I walked up to the bar and ordered my drinks. I was told to sit down and my drinks would be brought over. After waiting a further 15 mins, I proceeded to go to... More

Good food and very reasonably priced. We came for lunch and it was happy hour so our drinks were cheaper than normal. I would have given 5* except I happened to be in the "ladies' room " with one of the bar staff, she came straight out without washing her hands. Then she went straight behind the bar to make...

Not the way it looks in the pictures. Beach furniture is well past it, Cocktails are desperate and the beach itself is very dirty. That may be because its a Gulf of Thailand location, as it was my first visit I don't know. Not expensive.

Very poor service and the photos on here are not up to date. The balcony over the beach is definitely sinking into the sand and the whole section is not level. The whole bar could do with a face-lift and a coat of paint. Wait staff was slow and smelled of cigarette smoke. Never going back.

Great fire shows on the beach everyday. Nice cocktails but weak by many other thai standards. Pool could do with a bit of a clean!
