    Thanks so much for documenting this – it’s really interesting to read, and I’m going to refer back to it next time we’re going to Thailand.

    Thanks so much for this post! We are just now in the process of booking a place on Koh Phagnan. I looked up Sandy Bay and it gets terrible reviews, mainly due to the service. What did you guys think of the service? Thanks so very much for your info. – Kathrin

      Hi Kathrin, yes it wasn’t exactly service with a smile which we really noticed coming from Line n Soda where they were very friendly. We stayed at Sandy Bay for my brother-in-law’s wedding which was held there. I probably wouldn’t have chosen it based on the reviews but we were happy there and the staff were great for the wedding. The food at the restaurant was average and we didn’t eat there very much. We liked the restaurant at High Life Bungalows up on the cliff.

    Yep, I am definitely just going to head here for recommendations in those parts. Looks good (especially the Bangkok, Chang Dao and Sukothai recommendations).
