Well they got off to a terrible start by not showing up at the airport for our arranged and confirmed transfer when we arrived. Then!! Yes there is a then! They tried to charge us for the transfer after we arrived in our taxi, which we thought was the better option after waiting at the airport for 45 minutes. As... More

Set in a lovely garden, props for the gardener, are Some ten bungalows And a newer building. Though the bungalows give much more privacy, the only rooms worth booking are the newer ones in the building. We had two "pool acces rooms" after staying in a two bedroom bungalow. We found the bungalow in a poor state so moved to... More

We only stayed in Panalee Resort for 2 nights but loved every minute. The rooms we had where next to the pool which was excellent to relax in. The area around the resort is quiet and the beach is on the other side of the road but less than 100 metres away. There is a really nice restaurant about 30... More

I'm surprised by the overwhelming number of positive reviews on here as my wife and I are not picky or high-maintenance and do not require anything fancy, but we found ourselves so disappointed in Panalee that we stayed the night of our arrival and left the next morning after booking at another place. When we arrived, we were stunned at... More

This resort is lovely and the rooms and bathrooms are modern. It is quite nice for the price. The staff were lovely and very accommodating with regards to any needs and queries we had. The only thing is it is a bit far from the main spots on koh Samui and there is nothing interesting around the resort or good... More

The standout about Panalee is the helpful staff. On the first night we stayed in a standard bungalow and realised the hot water did not work. The next day we told the staff, try checked it out and had us move to the apartments. The apartments are much more modern and the shower was amazing. The staff always helped us... More

The staff were very friendly and accommodating ; they tried their best to attend to our requests. We were a bit surprised and just smiled about it when they told us they like us because we are very nice and we don't have too many demands and complaints. We had a deluxe villa which although clean and quite spacious has... More

I stayed here with my Husband in a poolside bungalow. The bungalow was spacious & clean with a good sized balcony and nice view. The area around the resort is quiet which is what we wanted. The beach is a 2 minute walk across the road and there are lots of great seafood restaurants near by. The 2 pools are... More

Very quiet stay for us with three kids. Stayed in a good sized 2 bedroom bungalow amongst the garden setting. Great staff, good breakfast, generous pool though heavy on the chlorine and whilst there's a beach across the road, it is not ideal for swimming. Ideal place for a quiet stay!
