That's how we felt in this place. Stayed two nights in a room with fan and no windows. It was like a cave. When we got in there the room was full of mozzies. It's in a quiet location, but room was very poor. All the bedding had massive rips in it and was filthy. The towels were stained and... More

Beach was amazing! Rooms were clean. 5 minute walk to main street. Although if you are with a group of people I would recommend staying in chaweng as it has more of a party life. Lamai beach is very quiet. Rooms were spacious and great. Only thing about this hotel is staff can't understand English the best. But that's to... More

This is definitely a 'get what you pay for' type of place. Nice location in Lamai Beach, we enjoyed the surrounding area and the beach was decent. There is a large bar across the street, so don't expect a secluded quiet experience. Not a gorgeous space by any means. The rooms were clean, certainly not spotless, but good enough for... More

We booked this on the boat over to Samui and found that it was very well known when we were asking for directions. It was super cheap, had a bar with a great spot and sunbeds right on the beach. You get what you pay for when it comes to the room but great service and location. I would recommend... More

The hotel is in a good location just set back from the beach in a central location in Lamai. When I arrived. The young girl on reception (unfortunately did not catch her name) was very friendly and hospitable. However, when I came to meet the other staff (the older women), I have never met such rude staff in any hotel.... More
