Great budget hotel. Good location at the end of Chaweng beach road and not far from the main road. Fantastic swimming pool and jacuzzi, and food and drinks are served poolside. Location right on the corner and adjoining both Chaweng and Chaweng Noi beaches - the latter is much quieter and more peaceful, with fewer beach vendors. The best of... More

Make sure you no what type of room/bungalow you have booked,as they range in size, views & distance from the beach. we ended up in a small room with a view of a wall & an extractor fan. Our room was clean and secure and we could go to balconies at either end of our floor and sit down if... More

Stuff was almost rude, taking more care about getting the money as about the guests requirers. Size of the room and the short distance to the pool was great. Rooms are probably exactly like when they were builded up in the 70's. Fridge and TV could be given to a local museum to rest there in peace. Pool anyway was... More

Staff was very rude. I heard they said very annoying and irritated when I phoned them. If we can't ask them before we make a booking, then they should not provide phone number or email on theirs own website. There a lot of better places to stay in Samui. Don't ever waste your holidays by staying at this hotel. I... More

Stayed in a beach bungalow and was amazing! Located on the best beach in Samui! Food is great and staff were friendly and helpful. If you want something a little quieter and away from the hustle and bustle but still close enough to the main strip that you don't have to travel too far then this is perfect. This resort... More

I stayed at the First Bungalow with friends. I stayed in the general accommodation whilst friends stayed in a luxury poolside bungalow. Both rooms were not much - very hard beds, basic looking, not the best but not worst shower (over tub). In my friends room the TV would not work (fuzzy channels). In my room the air conditioning unit... More

Do not book the standard room, it is a huge mistake and there is absolutely nothing standard about it. It's like a prison cell with grotty showers and a lovely stale smell to welcome you. The pictures on the website must have been from the most expensive rooms which we were super disappointed at. We immediately turned around and carried... More

Big resort at the most beautiful part of Chaweng beach. Beach is broad and waves good. The beds om the beach a little bit worn out or just broken. Deluxe room is a big room with a standaard bath room. Everything is there and clean, friendly staff but it has no taste at all! Compare it with the price and... More

Had the cheapest room which had no view but that is ok with me. The rim and bathroom excellent with comfy bed. Very quiet place and a long walk from centre of chaweng. Staff friendly enough but seemed a little tired and stressed and I didn't even get s goodbye when I checked out! Would have been nice

if you not have luxury expectations and you want stay in a simple room close to the beach here you are right. Cheap bungalows, cheap food. Meet the owner family. Rooms are clean and nothing to complain!
