We went to the Friday night party with Apak and Wednesday with Stafford Bros. After years of partying in Ibiza we found it to be ok however the music, drumming and way the speakers are set out makes the sound disjointed unless you are sat directly in front of the DJ stand. That drummer drove me crazy!! If you're sat... More

Friendly staff, 3 pools with with constant partying and DJing. Rooms were kept immaculate and modern also with super strong WIFI. Right on the beach and a close walk to bars inland. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a good time in Chaweng!

Good: Friendly reception and cleaning staff. Clean rooms and great location right at the beach. 100 meter to Chaweng center. Bad: Same House-beat all day and too loud, the music is kind of annoying. Bar and restaurant staff rude. Constantly harassed by people trying to sell you the same things over and over again. NO wifi at the rooms, only... More

It's in a perfect location situated by many restaurants, shops etc. the beach front bar has great food and a really wide selection... More

Great location for parties and young people! Good crack each night, rooms ok and clean! But the towels policy and how strict they are is a bit ridiculous! They would not give me a clean towel until I gave them back my other one! When we where checking out, it took nearly a hour. I understand they have to check... More

I went as part of a group of ten girls on a party holiday and this was definitely the place to stay! It's right on the beach with great beach and pool parties and when that finishes its right on a lively street and close to some of samuis greatest spots. The rooms were very clean with everything you could... More

We have stayed for three nights here,our room was located near the reception away from the pool so we didnt listen to the loud music that plays until 02:00. We enjoyed the breakfast which is good for the extra fee you pay. We loved the beach and pool party! Is indeed the heart of Samui. We liked the food they... More

The beds are as hard as concrete, very uncomfortable. Unable to put a dent in them if I wanted to, just solid wood with linnen on top. The floor would sleep more comfortable if all kinds of biting insects didn't already live there. Bedlinnen was dirty on arrival, staff refused to replace. So, go there for the party's on the...
