Good Points: Hot shower, tv, safe in the room, aircon, walking distance from everything, spacious rooms, free water, clean, friendly and helpful staff. Bad Points: Not on the beach, pool is in the reception area, jacuzzi is just a bubble button within the pool. Overall: If you're just looing for a base from which to explore Samui rather than a...

The Amarina is a small well run and comfortable hotel to stay in just a short walk from a fabulous beach. Very clean and quiet with free coffee throughout the day. The staff are very helpful and really pleasant. I stayed here last year and had no hesitation in booking again. Very good value for money.

Perfect location in the middle of Lamai. There is an inside pool but actually its just a cold jacuzzi. Luckily the beach is just 50m from the hotel. Clean room and good bed, polite staff. Express laundry for just 35bahts/kilo. Not a single gecko or insect in room. A good place to stay.

Beautiful hotel for a great price. Staff were always very friendly and welcoming. Just a couple of minutes to walk to the beach and a short walk to the Sunday night markets which has loads of great food to choose from. Rooms are comfortable, spacious and most importantly very clean.

The nicest place in Lamai for this money. We booked one type of room and they upgrade it without additional payment! Great and friendly stuff. 2 minutes to the beach. Feel like at home. Certainly, return back!

When we were booking the hotel there was afew comments about the rooms being small but we found it to... More

This was the perfect wee hotel for what we needed in Koh Samui. Good location in Lamai - so close to the beach. The room was on the smaller side and didn't have a lot of natural light - but for what we paid that wasn't a problem and they were nice and clean. The staff were lovely and very... More

My wife and I stayed for 8 days over new year. We stayed in the Amarina room. Pleasant room but a few things missing like a shower (only had a bath) and the bedside table had fallen off the wall and was left next to the bed and wasn't fixed during our stay even though I requested this to be...

We stayed there for 1 night. The room was relatively clean, location is fine but we wike up so many times because of the noise out side it was terrible... We stayed on the first floor maybe the upper floors are better. Another crazy thing: the cleaning lady woke us up at 7am since she didnt think to check first... More

We stayed for one night in September 2013. The rooms are very clean and nice, there was no window, which did not bother us. The staff was very helpful and really nice! We would definetly recommend this hotel!
