We stayed here for 5 nights on our first trip to Koh Samui. Whilst a slightly more expensive option then some of the other places we could choose we chose it as we liked the look of the Thai theme that ran through it... And glad we made our selection! The staff were friendly and helpful, there was a lovely... More

Specials on food everyday at the bar like satay chicken skewers or pizza. Negatives were the room wasn't topped up properly every day. The beach section for hotel and pool beds... More

We booked our stay with booking.com for 4 nights, but we were planing to extend, if we like it. The day we checked in no one informed us that there is big construction right next door. The next morning we waked up from horrible noise, which will continue a year or more. We asked them, but no one even bothered.... More

With ugly view and noisy construction right next to our suite ! This suite shouldn't be open since the view is too bad and very noisy the hotel should charge way less since the noise is too bad and the view is totally ruined the vacation ! Be aware !

Stayed at the Dara in December 2015, it is a fairly smallish hotel, compared to the bigger chains, but it does offer character and culture. The staff are friendly and helpful and the Manager gives the impression that he aims to please to his best ability :-) The pool is quite small and the sunbeds are arranged around the outside...
