Nice Beach Resort

Our rating:
3 stars, based on 1 expert review

The name Nice Beach Resort may be unimaginative, but the beach here is indeed nice and the resort sits midway along its length, between the centre and southern end of Thong Nai Pan Yai.

Reception is to your right as you walk in off the beach, overlooking the quite smart freeform swimming pool and offers a mix of old budget bungalows and newer mid-range rooms. While there are a couple of smart rooms directly behind the swimming pool, most of the offerings at Nice are back off the beach and of an older beach bungalow style.

These concrete chalets overlook lawn grounds and come in both fan and air-con flavours but they feel like they're biding their time till they're knocked down to make way for fancier digs like the rooms by the swimming pool. Beds are soft, decor frumpy, bathrooms a bit musty and some really need a coat of paint, but, for the money, these are not awful value for Thong Nai Pan Yai.

The newer rooms are of a considerably better standard and overlook the swimming pool and the beach beyond – go for an upstairs room for more privacy as the downstairs one faces directly onto a pathway that separates it from the pool, so there is plenty of passing pedestrian traffic.

Mushrooms and swings by the sea.

The beachfront area has loads of frontage with some shade trees slung with hammocks, a few swings and a handful of odd decorative two foot tall cement mushrooms. No, we have no idea why either.
