When we arrived to the hotel, nobody welcomed us. We brought our own luggage to the reception where the receptionist seemed a bit annoyed with our arrival. To get to the beach you need to cross a road. If you have kids, they will not be able to cross by themselves. The breakfast is the same EVERY single day, and... More

We have spent there like 5 or 6 nights and simply loved that place! Quiet, clean and modern hotel located in the north of Koh Samui. There are two pools in this resort (during our stay usually completely empty), pretty good free Wi-Fi in the rooms, really good breakfasts and a beautiful empty beach on the other side of the...

I stayed at Panalee for a week at the beginning of March. The property is very good value for the money: pools and common areas are beautiful and rooms are nice. The area is okay, but not the best. There's a smattering of restaurants and storefronts across the street (and you're very proximate to a 7/11). You will need a... More

We read a few previous reviews and were slightly apprehensive of booking Panalee , however , we needn't have worried ! Had a really warm welcome with a cold orange drink . Our room was big and clean and spacious , overlooking the lap pool . The balcony was also a decent size . As well as the lap pool... More

I paid a lot of money for the new year to stay there and it had a good location next to some good beach front restaurants/ 7/11. I thought the room would be more swanky...it was nice but there was a hole and crack in one of the windows, no bins in the room & the paint was pealing off... More

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
