Under new management! Carpe Diem (new name to be determined?) is THE place to be on Friday nights, during the "walking street" night market at Fisherman's Village. Hang out with friends & people-watch, while listening to jazzy tunes and enjoying 50 baht mojitos & 60 baht Singha beers. Andy, Pat, Glen & the rest of the Samui Fever crew have... More

Our intention was to stay here for 7 nights but 7 minutes was too long and we had no option but to find another hotel. Our room was absolutely filthy and stunk of damp. We complained but the owner was not remotely interested and couldn't see a problem. Eventually we were put in a room at another hotel for one... More

This is the one of the worst hotels we’ve ever stayed at. It looks nothing like the photos, which were clearly staged and probably taken when it was first built. At one time it may have been nice. But there has clearly been no maintenance since. We booked a transfer from the airport, which did not show up even after... More

The old adage you only get what you pay for! The main problem, the owner! She should not be allowed front house, she's not good at it and obviously doesn't enjoy it!

Very good hotel, Friendly staff and excellent location in Fishermans Village. Priced very well (700baht p.n.) and comfortabele, clean and aircon rooms. Interior Lobby is spacious, white and open. Excellent choice for a stay on koh Samui.

I am very late in writing this review but we had such an awful experience here I thought people should be warned! We had part of our honeymoon at this resort in feb 2010, unfortunately the site wouldn't let me select this date as it is a bit too far back I think. But I am writing it anyway. We... More

The laid back attitude of this place rubs off! We had fled a hideous hotel and on the eve of sonkran was lucky to find this place. The rooms are all individual in style and have a great quirky atmosphere. Our room was clean and the bathroom basic but adequate. The shower was cold and quite hit and miss. A... More

Good location, right by the Fisherman Village. We went on Friday, Bophut walking street started right outside the hotel, which was great for food and drinks. The hotel itself was not that nice, a bit pricey for 1,000 Baht and still have cold shower! And it could do with shower curtain as water was just everywhere in the bathroom. We... More

Carpe diem has very unusual style, rooms and all the interioir designed in an unexpected manner. And look good and impressive. This hotel has wonderful location in Bo Phut fisherman's village, not far from the Pier restaurant. Staff speaks strange language except of the one girl at the reception. It is impossible to get any cooperation in the evening, because... More
