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

Rooms are beautiful, clean and comfortable. Staff didn't have great English, and service was average. Pool was great and it's right on the beach. For us things were a little built up and not the prettiest beach

I stayed here this month for 2 nights. At first sight its a perfect paradise. The coffee shop / Restaurent in on the beach and gives a beautiful view to the endless ocean. I found everyone at the resort very helpful and joyous, and ofcourse they deserve to be happy to live/work in that place. The food especially the breakfast... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here month of January 2014. Our room was fairly clean and cozy. Food was mediocre.The resort is on the ocean but there is no beach. Beautiful clean pool with gorgeous view of the ocean. Don't expect any help or information from the owner unless you speak French. Even tho he clearly speaks English. There was... More

Placed perfectly at the beach in the Chaweng area of Koh Samui Island in Thailand, this is the perfect beach-front property. The breakfast, consumed leisurely sitting on the rising-sun soaked chairs, was nice and tasty. Even better were the rooms which were spacious, well-provided for and just perfect for a great night's rest. If you happen to be in Chaweng,... More

We stayed here as a reasonably large family and friends group for a few nights after a family wedding elsewhere on the island (also very good - see other review)and found the resort a great place to stay. Was slightly worried by a couple of reviews suggesting a grumpy owner, but we found all the staff, including the French owner,... More
