I have to admit that I was very disappointed with the hotel. At first I let go the fact that the manager promised us other room than received, that chef at restaurant had to go shopping every time we placed an order, or that beach was far more than “5-minute walk” (along street without sidewalk – unsafe for kids).

We enjoyed our 3-night stay. It truned out that our mini-bus driver or his colleagues at the pier didn't know where this hotel was; they dropped us off at another hotel with "cottage", which was 3 km from this one. Near "Coco Splash" you must instruct if they look puzzled. You can rent a motercycle for 200bht via hotel and... More

Loved this place, koh Samui isn't the best island but this place was great. Restaurant across the road was lovely too...and cheap! You can eat breakfast by the pool and have as much as you like, sometimes they bring out melon throughout the day, clean and quiet and hiring a scooter from them was easy.
