We paid $106 for Superior room and get 2star level room: 1. Old furniture, old TV, weak a/c, poor bath room. 2. Located in reception building, with no view, far from the beach. 3. We got only one key to ensure no electricity (no a/c) when go to the beach. So we suffer from 15min. of sauna when we enter... More

My family and I lived in the front pool villa 206 and 207th Banana fan is truly a unique place with atmosphere and well engineered gardens. nice pool area and beach bounty and good lunch specials in the restaurant, which run in rotation weeks. We stayed at the hotel during the flooding in late March 2011. The staff worked around... More

Stayed here between the 8th February and the 13th. Pick up from the airport was arranged with the hotel and they were waiting as we came out the airport. Only a 10 minute journey found us at the hotel which has a great location on the best stretch of beach in Chaweng. Very quiet other than the occasional late night... More

After a lengthy process of elimination, we decided on the Banana Fan Sea, room 329 for our 7 night holiday. We are a young married couple with a 1 year old and didn't want to be too far away from the action, but far enough to have a quiet nights sleep. Well the Banana Fan Sea far exceeded our expectations!.... More

We stayed at Banana for 8 nights from the 21.02.2011 8 amazing days! The staff was outstanding. Professional, friendly and helpful. We had a 11 months baby with us and there was no problem to have him with us at this hotel. I can really recommend this superb hotel to anyone - especially room 327 with sea view. Fantastic! We...

I stayed here with my partner in early January for 5 nights. I would have to say that resorts in koh samui are far too overpriced for what you get. I didn't mind this resort, I found it to be on the nicest part of the beach, close and far enough from the main area (there was a lot of... More

After arriving at the room, was a little bit unhappy as it seemed just like a normal clean hotel room with nothing special. However, after 24hours at this resort I realised that everything else about this place was excellent. Turn down service for room at night included lighting candles in bathroom, and emptying bins etc. Cleaning was immaculate and all... More
