What we say: 3.5 stars

The Pansand overlooks a scenic lawn with abundant palms and flowers in a quiet corner near the school and beach. It still strikes us as somewhat overpriced, though the value seems better after neighbouring Bulone and Marina resorts upped their prices considerably. The mid-size resort features simple yet comfortable white cottages in a few different sizes, with slightly cheaper bamboo editions located on the other side of a small canal. Fully enclosed bungalows are made from a mix of wood and concrete, with terracotta roofs and interiors of woven bamboo walls, tile floors and wooden furnishings. There's no air-con, but ceiling fans and screened windows keep the air flowing when power is switched on from 18:00 to 06:00. Beds are soft and equipped with mosquito nets, and the cold-water bathrooms have modern sinks and flush toilets. The resort has a large open-air restaurant and smaller gazebo where you can enjoy a romantic seaside dinner. There's also a shared internet station and book exchange in reception, though it's often locked. While we've found the staff to be impersonal compared to smaller places, Pansand's combination of comfort and quietude set it apart. All rates include breakfast. Expect a price drop of 200 to 300 baht if you're visiting in the shoulder months or travelling solo.
