    Nice pool, property in the rooms!

    The staff in the restaurant is slow

    Exceptional

    Friendly english speaking staff. Nice room and beachside.The restaurant is located with view over the sea. The hotel is located at the end of chaweng road and so it is more quiet than in the middle of chaweng rd and beach. Liked the garden view with palms, small ponds filled with water lilys, frogs and koi carps. Booking of tours and transportation was no problem and well organised. Stayed in fact 8 days because it was such a nice place.

    Location

    We booked a superior twin with garden view and got a standard room with a view of a side path. We believe the room we booked was given to someone else. Also considering that it was a resort for tourist the staff did not speak much english. I suggest spending the same amount of money for a 4 or 5 star resort on another part of the island.

    Amazing, the room is the most basic room (Garden view), but the interior of the room was spectacular! Love the decor. Love everything about the resort! Thumbs up!!

    This is a veeeery nice hotel on the beautiful beach with white sand! It is very close to all shops + it is a very quite place if you need to relax and sleep tight during your holidays :) i do recommend.

    the bed was too hard, just take it in mind.

    Very good

    All. Quiet and relaxing, very freindly staff. Nice room and nice beach.

    We need to pay everything( for 8 nights) right away upon arrival instead of check out. Nobody informed us about this while we book this hotel.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The resort is very cosy and compact and offers both a nice pool area and quick access to the sea. The newer rooms are built and decorated in a design-ish style, which is a fresh alternative to those outdated oriental styles. Staff was very friendly and helpful. As to the room equipment, we were happy to find safety boxes in the rooms (I don't recall that to be mentioned in the hotel data)

    Stayed first at a pool view bungalow, which was basically nice. However, as in so many places in Samui, the plumbing was a problem. During two nights, our toilet overflooded to toilet floor (not nice). Naturally, we were then kindly offered a new room, which we then decided to update to a seaview room. This was an excellent decision, since these rooms (3 in total) have probably one of the best distances/views to the beach in the Chaweng area. Another issue was the WLAN, which worked randomly, not quite satisfactorily.

    Superb

    All the staff are extremely nice and helpful. The resort, while not brand new, is in excellent repair and very well maintained. I really liked the location being on the quieter side of Chaweng Beach (hardly any jetskis!). Nice and very clean room.

    My only issue is that the restaurant (very nicely located at the beach) could use some improvement. I'm willing to concede, though, that this may be because it was really low season during my visit.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    It is a very nice place to stay in Samui just on a very nice and peaceful beach and right next to the shopping street.

    The resort is more suitable for couples and families and not for single travellers.

    Fabulous

    This hotel offers remarkable value. The manicured grounds comprising grass, lily ponds, coconut palms, paths weaving through. The Hotel takes a lot of care, sweeping/cleaning the grounds and pool from before dawn to after dusk. They use shears not whippersnipper so the place remains peaceful. A simple restaurant overlooks the beach. Nice and breezy location. Breakfast buffet was good, staff in restaurant very helpful. The Hotel lends out DVDs free of charge. Nice looking pool, although we did not use it. Beach is prepared very early in the day. Overall, I think this hotel is excellent value.

    Reception. Some of the staff were very "blur". They do not check-in returned DVDs' they are slow to deal with email, they have limited knowledge of Samui, especially if you are enquiring about anything BUT the major tourist items. The two PCs located in reception converted to chargeable whilst we were staying so there was zero free internet. Our Garden View Standard room bathroom was in very poor condition. These bathrooms are being renovated during 2012. Not before time!

    Good hotel for this money. But they should some improvements there.

    Not very clean bath and it's rather old.

    Only the beach is reasonable.

    If you like frogs at night then the best hotel is this. You can dance with them all night without sleeping.
