Ok let's get the facts straight, there's lots of good and bad reports about this place, and to totally honest it's not my preferred place in samui, but I was charged 16,000 baht for a whole month here we got an upgrade to family room on the fifth floor, views of waste land and the samui ring road, which at...

My wife and I stayed at the joy residence for 2 weeks and would say that this is the best hotel we stayed in whilst in Thailand. Firstly the price of this hotel was value for money for 600baht a night over Christmas and new year. On arrival they only had a family room available so we had to stay... More

I stayed here for the full month of April, as it was the accommodation provided in my TEFL course. The room was amazing, clean, comfy and beautiful. The pool was also very nice. Security is a big thing for me in choosing in places to stay in. This place is not secure at all. The first night we checked in,... More

My boyfriend and I did not even see the room, before we were whisked away to their sister resort, Wimaan Buri. I read via tripadvisor but did not think it would happen to me. I booked through agoda and when we reached there, they just told us they were overbooked and we had to move to Wimaan Buri. But i... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights after we became ill with Dengue fever. It was very close to the hospital for our daily blood tests. The room itself was large and modern with a comfortable bed, good a/c, hot shower and free, fast wi-fi. The pool looked really nice but we were too ill to use it.... More

It’s a good 10-minute walk to the main street, which runs parallel to the beach, but that is compensated for by the hotel amenities and value. This is a relatively new and stylish property that seems to cater for longer-term residents but also has rooms available for daily rentals. There is a huge pool, a small fitness center and a...

I stayed here for 1 and a half months from Feb 2013 to mid March 2013. Its a good hotel with good service. Rooms were cleaned 2-3times a week and cleaned well.
