Very good location on a wonderful Beach (even if THE best access to THE seaside is from THE other end of THE Beach). Big and silent rooms, good breakfast. THE restaurant is med level, quite high prices vs THE general offer. THE staff is kind and helpful. Very good and romantic place to stay! Good price.

We stayed at what was previously Samui Yacht Club for three nights in July 2014. We first inspected it before we checked in and although it looked tired, it was well situated on beautiful Silver Beach and. it appeared to have a rustic charm about it. The one thing the hotel has going for it is wonderful staff they have.... More

Thanks for your review. You are correct that the resort is in need of some upgrades. We just took over the resort at the beginning of July 2014 (4 weeks ago as I write this) and we have already started to implement many changes. The beach and pool and gardens are almost perfect already but the rooms are in need... More

Formerly called Samui Yacht Club, this resort hotel with old, tired, spacious bungalows has new management from 1 July 2014 (the same managers who do an excellent job at Crystal Bay Beach Resort 100 metres up the beach), so some of the small 'issues' are sure to be ironed-out quickly. The rooms are a bit outdated but are clean and... More

The resort is the last of five on silver beach therefore is quiet and not many people on that area. The staff is friendly and didn't made any issues with us making early check in and late check out without Extra fee. We had no hassles whatsoever for renting a car and motorcycle. All that process appeared transparent and fair.... More

We were staying in a resort just up from the yacht club so can't comment on rooms, but the Thai food is some of the best we have on out trip. So reasonable with pricing and portion size , we are going back tonight for a 3 rd time .

Rooms are spacious so families with small kids are more than welcome. Swimming pool is great and so are the ping pong table and the swings. The restaurant is not cheap but there are other options on the beach. Very good money value, Very good and helpful staff. Will return and recommend!!

We stayed five days in the resort. The location is beautifull, one of the best on the island. The houses are nice, but a lot is wrong. Bathroom wasnt as nice as we saw on the advertisement. There is absolutely no 'outside' garden effect. The plastic roof old and dirty. No warm water and the bathtub was dirty. The staff... More

The bungalow we stayed in (superior garden) was oke. It was spacious and the beds were good. The bathroom is pretty large aswel, it was not spotlessly clean and it looked kinda outdated. But for us it was more then fine. And then the beach... O my god it was just paradise. The private beach was not crowded at all... More

I'll keep this one short, as most of my comments have been covered by other reviewers. Great Location, beautiful beach, Indifferent staff, Zero service, There seems to be no Management what so ever. Beautiful pool area, littered with dirty dishes and empty beer bottles that are never picked up from breakfast until after dark. Food quality at the restaurant could... More
