BLUF: Decent, a/c, wifi that reaches the beach. Hot shower, clean towels, and breakfast included. You're at the north end of the beach, so a few less tourists than at other resorts. I used booking.com, but perhaps call or email a couple of days ahead and check the rate.

ROOM/RESTO: Not sure if we paid a pre-Thingyan price, (115 USD per night) for a double room detached bungalow with private bathroom, right next to the beach and restaurant. We had 2 twin beds, and decent wifi even on the beach. Didn't try to watch anything, so not sure it's sufficient for streaming. A/c worked fine and the water was hot enough. Ants in the room, but not much you can do without poison...Breakfast was included and decent with an egg station, Myanmar tempura veggies, mohinga, fried rice, stir fried veg, and a few other Asian/Western options. Bread, fruit, juice, tea/coffee. Note: they might close up a bit early (advertised 7:00-9:30 but told us they were closing at 9:20). So if you're a last-minute to breakfast type, send someone over to let them know you're on the way. Resto is not open after breakfast, so you can enjoy one of the many options nearby.

HOTEL/BEACH: Very nice, plenty of lounge chairs with cushions and inner tubes to rent. Staff is friendly and speaks great English. They accept credit cards and will pick up/drop at airport for free. Just be sure you call/email and make a reservation for the pickup from the airport. About 15 minutes from Thandwe airport.

Rent bikes at Best Friend restaurant for 500 MMK per hour and ride down the road to see the local village life. We took a boat ride that included snorkeling and a trip to a nearby island for 30,000 MMK. It was great, and our guide was sweet and offered great conversation and his thoughts on Buddhism and religion. Hotel can book you a tour or meet a local guide on the beach (we did!).

In the evening, stroll down the beach or the road and eat at one of the myriad of restos. All the food was lovely, but I was with a vegetarian and my fish fillets were perfect every night. (Two restos reviewed as well).

Overall, it's an acceptable place, but shop around because accommodations in Ngapali range from 30 USD/night guest houses and expensive resorts (500+ USD/night).

Room Tip: Ask for a bungalow if you want to walk out to the beach. ~30 more USD a night than the regular room.

on the quieter side of the beach, i had one of the least expensive rooms in a building in the garden, no sea view but large rooms well equipped and furnished with fridge.good breakfast, not really cheap but good value anyway for Ngapali.

We stayed for just one night before moving on to Yoma Cherry Lodge. We didn't really enjoy our stay here but neither was it terrible. Our room was tired looking with no nice touches. The dining area is lovely with great views of the beach. Plentiful choice at breakfast. However, we immediately didn't like the atmosphere of the place - particularly when checking in. We were pleased to leave.

A semi-detached bungalow room with a view overlooking Ngapali’s glorious beach – plus a comprehensive, plentiful buffet breakfast served on a terrace facing the sea. That sums up our experience of this nice, easy going hotel in one of Burma/Myanmar’s fast-developing tourist locations. And five minutes walk along this idyllic beach, you’ll come across a swathe of charming restaurants, all of them serving fresh local fish along with a bottle or two of ‘Myanmar’, the nation’s beer. Oh, and try a bottle of Red Mountain sauvignon blanc, too – the country’s leading (and very decent) white wine.

Another thing to say in the hotel’s favour is its free airport transfer. If you want to be collected from the airport on your arrival, you need to let the hotel know a couple of days in advance – but the point is, it’s a free (and very welcome) service.

Meanwhile, the hotel provides loungers and beach towels (both free) for guests to sunbathe, read, watch the world go by or, in the evenings, enjoy the spectacular sunset. The beach itself is clean, uncluttered and uncrowded, and our four-day experience at the Silver Beach was the perfect end to an unforgettable stay in Burma.

We stayed in the lotus room (4207) which is in a block of 24 rooms set in the garden. We were lucky and had a sea view. As we arrived the bathroom was flooded out and there was hardly any water pressure. The entrance door was very hard to open and close. We reported the problem with the water pressure the next day and every day there after. If you had enough water pressure to take a shower it fluctuated so much that you would get a blast of icy cold water or scalding hot. This was on a daily basis and I asked the manager if he had any other rooms and he would only upgrade the room if I paid for it. It was not just my room in the building with the water problem because other guests complained and moved to other hotels. We resorted to taking a cold shower in the garden most evenings. Breakfast was plentiful although it did not change the 11 nights I stayed there and no ham or bacon were available. The restaurant staff were sometimes on the ball but were often in another zone. The beach was clean but dogs often defecated and the fruit sellers sometimes left the waste buried in the sand. The last 3 days of our stay we were bothered by sand flies and the blisters to a few days to heal. The sea was very clean and calm and some regular guests said it was the calmest sea since at least 10 years. If I stay here again it will be in the higher priced bungalows.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the Lotus rooms
