Thai Tan Tien
Good budget off-beach option
What we say:
Originally entering the market as a sort of Beach Club clone, with a similar set of thatched roof bungalows, Thai Tan Tien has begun to stand alone as the beach's true budget option. Of course it isn't quite as nice as other spots on the beach, with the bungalows are set about 40-metres off the beach, behind a marshy swamp. Rooms are simple and no frills, with fridges and warm showers but on the whole they could use a bit of sprucing up. For the price, however, you can look past the blemishes. Plus, even though the rooms themselves are off the beach, Thai Tan Tien has one of the most private stretches of beach in the area, with little traffic coming from either side. Their beachfront restaurant is worth a stop, even if you're not staying the night, as they offer acceptable food at the lowest price on the beach. There are definitely nicer places to stay on Long Beach but for the price they're hard to beat.

How about... Different than the Beach Club?
We really enjoyed Thai Tan Tien, it's actually a lot better than the Travelfish would lead you to believe, although it probably isn't as nice as the Beach Club. Can we just think of it as it's own entity though? The rooms are clean and well-furnished and each bungalow has a nice porch with hammocks or chairs. It was really QUIET and nearly no one bothers you on the beach. The restaurant is mediocre and there were a lot of mosquitoes during our visit. I would recommend renting a motorbike as it's pretty far from town. Bungalows are now starting at $22.

Lovely well-priced Bungalow Resort
This place was just perfect. The staff were friendly and some spoke great English. The rooms were big with everything one needs and nothing you don't. The bungalows are about 100 feet from the beach, where there is a great restaurant. Soccer balls, volleyballs, and snorkeling equipment available for free. Good food/drinks and cheap. And the beach may as well be private. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Much greater than your description
The place is just great. Simple, quiet, no fla fla. 10 bungalows all at 15$ all seasons. No music, no restaurant but a 2 eggs and baguette breakfast in the morning at 1,20$. Held by honest owner with only nice daughter and son. Might be less sophisticated than Beach Club but much more natural in my opinion. The so-called marshy swamp is an overflow of the sea from rainy season and habitat of frogs and crickets making wonderful concert for the night. What is better ?
