What we say: 2.5 stars

Koh Hai Villa is a throwback to the days when Ko Ngai was a practically unknown island where backpackers freely roamed. Unfortunately, its bamboo and wood bungalows with green tin roofs haven't seen an upgrade since then, and today they look like they're on the verge of falling over. If you stay here, be prepared for a tiny, dusty room with cheap plastic matting over the floors, uncomfortable spring beds with worn sheets, lumpy pillows and mosquito nets conspicuously lacking, one tiny screened window, one crusty looking electrical outlet and a rusty wall-mounted fan. The porches have plastic chairs that look like they just washed up on the beach. In the bathrooms, cold showerheads are onerously placed where the ceilings slant downward, meaning that only the shortest travellers won't have to duck while showering. On the bright side, the huts are spread around a lovely lawn where football matches take place around sunset. The lone "superior" fan bungalow closest to the beach is considerably better than the standards. You'll also find air-con bungalows made of concrete; the one we checked out felt damp and cave-like. Breakfast is included in rates, though the one served to us by a careless staff member was cold and unappealing. Despite all of the negatives, this is the only option if you don't want to spend over 800 baht or sleep in a tent.
