    Fabulous

    We rented a beach bungalow, which met all our expectations (and even beyond !) Waking up, taking a dive and then have breakfast gave us (family with 2 children) a real feeling of being on a bounty island. The staff was very helpful, the breakfast very good. This is absolutely a place to return to.

    Superb

    We stayed three nights, which we had booked from Denmark. We had booked a Seaside Bungalow, which was a mistake, since it's not near the beach at all, but behind the restaurant, and with no view at all. Very professional receptionist, that made it possible for us to upgrade to a Beach Bungalow. They are very small, but the only ones worth staying in, right in front of the fantastic ocean, wake up and go for a swim! The resort is old, but the surroundings are faboulous, you can easily walk to center of Chaweng in 5 minutes. The pool was large and very pleasant, nice food and great massage at the resort! We booked additional four nights, when returning to Samui, at the same bungalow(747), which was the one to stay in. Rent scooters(remember helmets!) very cheap(200THB a day) through the hotel.

    Very small and worn out bungalows, but is you can live with that, as we could with two children, don'r hesitate to book.

    Chaweng is quite busy, but the hotel is at the end of Chaweng beach. It's a very nice quiet place. The pool is very big!

    The restaurant and the poolbar are very expensive. The WiFi is most of the time not working and if it works, it works only in the lobby. Continental breakfast is simpel.

    We had 8 rooms booked for couples, I couple was on their honeymoon. When we arrived at the hotel we were finally taken to our rooms which all had 2 x single beds, We were not able to change our rooms until the following day which we had to be out of our single rooms by 10am with bags stored at reception and then were allowed to check into our new rooms after 2pm. this really wasted the first day of our holiday. 1 family in our group had Children 3 years old and 10 months old. This was a huge inconvience. Secondly good luck finding a banana lounge next to the pool, the entire time of our stay there were german tourist who had reserved banana lounges by the pool and were either in their rooms or at the beach ( where they had also reserved lounges) only returning to the pool rarely for a swim. This should have been policed by the hotel. I counted 32 banana lounges reserved with 1 Person swimming in the pool and no one else in the pool area on one morning at 8.30am. This was common for every day. Thirdly we ordered three plates of french fries to share costing 450tbt, we were lucky if we got 1 full plate when combining all 3 plates. absolutely massive prices for food considering you can buy a complete 500g steak meal with sides for 300 tbt at most restraunts in the area.

    Superb

    The hotel staff especially the bus boys were the best thing, they couldn't do enough for us and made things so much easier. A special mention to one of them guys who's name is Beer. Couldn't have done anymore for us, true asset to the hotel

    Only problem was having to book an extra 3 nights which I paid over the counter only to be told 2hrs later that due to problems back in melb and that I had to leave quickly I was not able to get a refund due to hotel policy. I found that pathetic to be honest and had nothing to do with with money for me it was principal but can't do much about it now

    Hotel was located on Cheweng Noi beach and not Chaweng Beach as advertised and stated on websites. Reception veru disorganised and rude.

    Great beachside location. Close to amenities and not to close to the town's noise. Breakfast was pretty good as well.

    Villa's cleaniliness was poor at arrival. Window blinds were broken and shower head was damaged. However these were promptly rectified.

    The beach was at the door step

    I didnt like the fact that we had to pay for a Gala dinner which was total waste of time and money. There were all sorts of things wrong with the room like broken toilet, TV, AirCon and there was no Cold water! We were also charged for extra for room service fee.

    Lovely hotel and pool area, expensive to drink and eat at. A long way from main Chawang beach shopping area, about a 2km walk. Hotel has shuttle to and from airport but cheaper to take taxi.

    Too far from main restaurants and shopping area. Walkable but in heat and monsoon weather isnt a good idea.

    Good

    Close proximity to the beach. Quiet, efficient air con. Great pool and lovely gardens which were extremely well looked after.

    The beach area was not looked after at all.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The private, sandy beach is really great and good for families/kids, too. My "First room" included everything necessary for reasonable money. The resort itself is well kept and clean, swimming pool included. One can buy all necessary items at the surrounding shops. If you are keen on a long walk you can either go to Chawng or Lamai. But it will take you about 20-30 min minimum. Use a Tuk-tuk instead.

    Only thing not so fine was the fact that the transfer from and to the airport was not included in the price. So I had to pay 700 Baht extra...
