We stayed at Papillon for 4 nights over New Years Eve on our family vacation and had 2 Large Rooms - Breakfast included. The location is quiet and away from Party Central, which we loved. Some of the staff were very nice and friendly. We were disappointed that there was no beach at all in front of this hotel, the... More

I would like to write a good review about the hotel, as the staff was very nice and helpful and good location close to the sea, but there were some facts which left a very bad impression. Shortly: very tiny shallow pool with jacuzzi without water, shower in the bathroom without pressure and water is not dripping at all, and... More

Had a bit of a bad experience with this place. At first the hotel seemed nice, location was good, the girl who checked me in was nice and the room was ok. I had thrown my stuff in my room and switched on the TV when I heard a scurrying noise from the roof. I switched off anything making noise... More

We had to call the tourist police. we were sleeping one night in this hotel. We decided to go somewhere else that we did not like the treatment of staff, the Boss and the full hotel was FRENCH, no thai personal, and they are very rude , the worst treatment I had in Thailand. The French owner was drunk when... More

We traveled to Koh Samui on the last leg of our trip in Thailand. We were in Thailand for one month over xmas and new years. We read a lot of reviews before going to Thailand, in particular at the Papillon Resort. There were a lot of mixed reviews, but we decided on the Papillon for its location and atmosphere.... More

My second time at Papillon spent 4 nights here in July. The appeal of Papillon is its location. Its away from the main Chaweng drag in a very quiet semi concealed spot at the far(airport) end of the beach. The views and atmosphere are wonderful and spectacular. Its a small quiet place with bungalows set in tropical garden. Be careful... More

Went there with 2 friends and got a really nice duplex room. The staff were the most friendly we have met so far in our trip. The guy at reception spoke 3 languages (thai, english and french) really well which is a pleasure in this country and even let us use his personal phone to call an airline to book... More

Good resort - rooms were clean, nice little bungalow to ourselves, pool is lovely and great views (especially at high tide). Great location and close to restaurants along the beach. Breakfast was nice. A little expensive but you pay a premium for being beach front on Chaweng. Staff helpful but travel can be booked cheaper from outside travel agents. We... More

This is a nice budget-friendly resort located at North Chaweng beach. We didn't go in expecting it to be a luxurious resort with chocolates and a beautiful lobby (like its neighbor resorts) and it wasn't! It's a guesthouse, cheap for the Chaweng area and good value for getting your own cute bungalow to yourself. The people were nice and helpful,... More
