Koh Samui is such a lovely friendly island. It's a real shame the management and staff of this hotel try their hardest to be as rude as possible and I leave with a bitter taste in my mouth. Not what I thought when I booked in for a week's stay in a bungalow in the beach. The reception staff seem... More

The location is good, the hotel is alright, the staff are nice enough. The restaurant is slow, overpriced and small portions. The beds are very hard and we are in a 4th floor walkup. But the hotel is fine. I would give it a 2.5 out of 5 perhaps. BUT our problem is with the acceptance by the hotel of... More

Fantastic view. Right at the sea. Incrediable good personel. They took me for no charge out all nights and also a round trip. Ask for Lazy Oat he can fix a Bungalow fisrst class for 3000 BHT a night. TIP HIM !5% on everything. AND remember that not eating everything on your plate is an insult, because he makes 6000... More

Had a great stay for two nights at First Beach Bungalow. Rooms were clean and comfortable, and service was very good. Perhaps the best part of this resort is how far away it is from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Beach. This was exactly what I was looking for after a hectic few days in Bangkok. If your looking...

First to counter the negatives of other reviewers...we had no problems with internet, it is slower than we have at home but I guess fibre optic broadband isn't here yet!!!! The staff at reception/bar/cleaners are all wonderfully friendly and happy to help with any query. We stayed in the cheaper rooms in the seperate block, are this is where my... More

Average and overpriced. We stayed at this hotel for our honeymoon from 24th to 31st of December. The hotel is not in a good location, you need a taxi or a scooter, which is what we rented. First I will start with the reception. The lady at the reception desk was very unfriendly and upset, which makes difficult to inquire... More

First of all, Chaweng is a great place for hollidays. First Bungalow Beach Resort is located in walking distance to the center where you find great opportunities to go for shopping, bars etc. I recommend renting a motorcycle from the hotel for 200 baht per day. I had a bungalow with beach view. The standard was pretty ok, with air... More

Chaweng is a very busy area with masses of restaurants, bars and shops along the main street. Same, same but different which is so true and you ca get Tee Shirts to prove it. This hotel is at the far end of the beach and much quieter. Just a short walk and you have everything you need. Catch a truck... More

On our recent trip to Koh Samui we had to seek alternative accommodation for 6 nights in the Chaweng Beach area due to major renovations happening at the resort we originally booked. The First Bungalow Resort is located at the quiet end of Chaweng and fronts Chaweng Noi Beach. It is one of the few resorts in that area that... More
