Me and my boyfriend have been travelling around Thailand and have stayed in 5* resorts in the past. In comparison, this resort isn't rated a 5, but is certainly not worth rated a 1 as.per last review. We were given the same large sea view bungalow as mentioned in the previous post. Correct, there was a small gap from the... More

We had a "large seafront" room and it was horrible as was the staff. Don't trust the photos or the reviews...maybe written by someone who really wasn't there. The first room we were given had a large gap around the front door, but was able to be locked. We noted the room was kind of crummy looking and smelt like... More

My boyfriend and I were at Papillon Resort for only one night. We wanted to find a hotel that was close to the airport but still comfy and quite. Papillon it was and I recommend this lovely place to everyone! The staff was incredibly friendly. We ordered room (bungalow) service and the food was fantastic. Whenever we'll visit Chaweng in...

This was a lovely resort to start our trip off at Koh Samui. The pool is a little small, but it seemed like we were the only guests for the time we stayed there, so it worked for us. The garden area and eating area is close to the sea so you are surrounded by beautiful views. The beach is... More

We have stayed at the Papillon resort many times since 2006 .We have had extended family gatherings as well as individual stays.We keep coming back almost every year for many reasons but mainly because of the brilliant staff.It is a very very safe environment for children because the apartments we stay in face directly onto the pool and the beach...

The resort looks nice. There is a pool next to the beach and the staff was o.k. the srrunding of the room is very humid and its imposable to be in the room without A/C. The thing that made us leave the hotel was waeking up to sound of running rats and squeeking. NOT recomanded.

Great location, facilities, service and food.. Wish I could have spent longer than one night here but had to catch my flight back to phuket.. Overall this was easily the best hotel I have stayed in whilst being in Thailand.. Room was already cooled upon my arrival and a free cold drink was given to me at reception.. Food at... More

Stayed with them for 3 days in May 2014. Its was a low season and only 3 rooms in the property were occupied. The rooms were decent enough but quite old. They do need a serious overhaul as I could see the paint chipping and other noises from the walls. Nice sitting space outside the room. The staff overall was... More

Although I had called the resort two days prior to arrival and asked for a pickup from the airport, there wasn't one. Upon checking in, I mentioned this and got a shrug in reply.The golden rule in Thailand is not to get angry if things don't go your way, so if you follow that, you're bound to get a warmer... More
