Goldkey Bungalow

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

First of all, you need to understand that this place is in the middle of jungle so you can't avoid some insects, roaches, spiders, geckos etc. We arrived and were greeted by awesome staff members, who were so nice to us the whole week. Our bungalow had its own shower, toilet and fan and also mosquito net. The only thing that bothered us slighty, was a really hard mattress. Other than that, I cannot think anything bad to say about our bungalow. Buffalo bay was a really quiet beach and we totally recommend night swimming there because of glowing planktons! If your bungalow isn't right next to the beach, you can easily walk there in 2 minutes. There were hornbills on the trees and we saw bunch of squirrels playing there as well. Geckos were laughing as we relaxed in our hammocks. On the opposite side of the road there were My BBQ Bar, which had the best barracuda on the whole island. So if you need a break for all the big city hustle and bustle, this is the place for you!

Located along buffalo bay beach so it's excellent for seeing the amazing sunsets plus you have a few restaurants close by. We stayed in the beach facing bungalow, this place helped us out after being let down by another resort. The bungalow we had was made from wood, quite small with a Thai bathroom, i.e. no hot water for a shower, but a shower was present. The room is fan cooled, no AC. Bed is protected from mosquitoes by a mosquitoe net. No cupboards for clothes only a few coat hooks. Never ate food here as we like to eat out. Grounds are still very undeveloped so you have that feel of being at one with nature. That nature feel is also accompanied by the squirrels that frequently run about the trees above you but also the magnificent Hornbills!! We saw Hornbills everyday around this area, if you stay in room 3 as we did there is a Palm tree here, keep looking here as the Hornbills are regular visitors at close proximity to you too... At The front of the resort near the road is a small convenience store for those little essentials like mosquitoe spray, gas for your motorbike, sangsom etc.. The staff were all super friendly and helpful, especially Jame! They really can't do enough to help you with your needs. They helped us rent motorbikes and bicycles, arrange tickets back to Ranong etc.. great stuff from the staff!! I hope in time they get the funds to make this place better,, for now this is a very affordable budget place but I can see many people not seeing here as meeting their expectations. You have to remember, this place is still very quiet from tourism so you are not going to get the usual luxuries you will from main land.. You will experience electricity cuts, slow Wi-Fi etc.. but on a whole this place is very good.

I stayed for 2 nights here in bungalow. I love this place as it is locayed at beachfront, just walk fron my room to the beach. Fan room was fine enough for me. The only annoying is mosquito, not only here but also everywhere in Koh Payam. They provide the mosquito net cover the bed in every room. Guest can order food here and also cocktail during while watching the sunset.

We have been to this place for 3 nights. We had a family room which was spacious, with good mosquito-nets, clean bathroom and fans. The personnel was friendly. The food was ok. The quality of the food was different every time. It good be excellent, but also poor. The location of the hostel was amazing. Next to the beach, with a bar and seats and a wonderful view of the sunsets. For this period of the year (December), the rooms are over priced. If I return, I would choose another hostel or resort.

We stayed here at the lowseason and it was like paradise, not many people a big beach with sand and no rocks. The staff helped us a lot with 2 accidents of a friend and organized a speed boat to the hospital in ranong. The rooms are clean with a nice bed in it.

Wir mussten insgesamt 2x umziehen in ein anderen Bungalow.Personal war immer freundlich und hilfsbereit.Aber die Bungalows sind der absolute Graus.Stromausfall,wasserausfall,teilweise kein Wlan.Kein Schrank und Ablagemöglichkeiten.Die Bungalows sind niedrigstes Niveau.Da vergeht einem der Urlaub.Ein wilder Hund hat mich dort gebissen.Dann bekam ich auch noch Dschungelfieber.Urlaub komplett versaut.Da fahr ich nie wieder mehr hin!!!
