This hotel was lovely. Instantly we got that impression when the staff where so welcoming. The rooms are very clean and modern. The pool is big. The restaurant food is ok but wouldn't optionally choose to eat there. We booked this at an off peak time so we got a great price it may be a lot more expensive in... More

The rooms were clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The position of the hotel is at the far end of. Chaweng away from the main shopping and Restaurant area, but within walking distance. The only down side was it was a little too close to the road but saying that was good value for money. The beach at Chaweng... More

We came during the lowseason in November and the hotell was almost empty. We really liked the rooms, which are very big and have balconys. The pool is also good. The hotell would have been perfect if it was closer to the center. You had to walk 20-30 mins to get to the middle and 10-15 mins to the beach.

great cost benefit, if you just want a good hotel, but not a resort in samui. I stayed there for 2 nights before going to the full moon party. This wasn´t a good choice, if you happen to go there just to go to the full moon party it is better to stay in koh phan ngan

(i had to buy earplugs) in the second room the air conditioning was not working at all! they tried to fix it, during the night, and after an hour the... More

The reception is efficient but do not expect much English. Rooms are modern but shower had problem with water. The pool is not attractive at all and location is a bit out of Chaweng center but within walking distance. OK place to stay at but nothing special!

We really enjoyed our stay there. As a family we had our own double bedroom with an interlinking twin room for the kids, the beach was a 5 to 10 minute walk away (depending on speed of kids) and the pool was big enough for adults as well as kids and was kept beautifully clean. We walked into town on... More

Good location just on the edge of Chaweng, perfect for walking into the town or going on the scooter to Lamai. The pool was great, and amazing fun in the rain. Only bad thing was the hot tub was out of order :( The reception staff were great, arranging our return taxi and speed boat to the full moon party... More

To walk to centrum maybe take 20 minutes. I stayed in room 415 and the room was very clean and the aircon works good but they have... More

Far enough from the noise but close close enough to walk to the main night life. Could get there for about 100baht for two People if you haggle with the taxi's a bit. They start at 200baht. Friendly staff. Underground parking. Distant sea view from our room. Nice pool. Is a slight smell in the bathroom but if the extractor... More
