We were met with drinks on arrival which was a lovely touch. The staff are so friendly and accommodating and instantly made us feel welcome. The rooms are big and very clean with comfy beds. The pool is a good size and the wifi isn't bad. Would definitely stay here again. Need to get a taxi into the main bit... More

This was a pleasant, clean and spacious hotel with friendly staffed and rooms were cleaned every day. We checked out early on our last day and the staff kindly let us stay in the reception and lay by the pool for a good few hours.

Stayed here for a week in June, booked at short notice and contacted the hotel in advance to arrange a pick up from the pier which they organised for us which was nice after a half day travelling from Chiang Mai. Hotel itself was clean and staff friendly and welcoming. Had a few ants in room one day but hotel... More

after a week in Samui staying at a 5 star hotel, I checked into first residence only for one night at the end of our stay. I must say for the price it is you definitely get a lot for your money .. big rooms, clean, nice pool, restaurant, great location and helpful staff.

We stayed at First Residence for 5 nights as a couple and absolutely loved it. Not only were the rooms exactly as we expected and beautifully cleaned, but the staff were so helpful and lovely to us through our whole visit. From helping us with printing, to finding stamps for me (I looked at about ten different shops, so frustrating!)... More

This is not a luxury hotel. If your looking for something cheap and basic this is fine. Rooms are dated and a little grotty eg stains on the walls, dirty grout in the shower, old towels. Location is good 5 min walk to the beach and a few restaurants. Staff are ok not overly friendly Tip - They have a... More

We stayed for two nights in February and were very impressed for what we paid. The room was spacious, clean and had an excellent shower. The staff were extremely helpful, in particular Auddy who helped us organise trips and motorbike hire, he was very obliging throughout our stay. The hotel is slightly out the centre of Chaweng but it is... More

Good hotel with a reasonable price, just at the start of Chaweng beach (its a 30-45 min walk to the hart of Chaweng beach). Friendly staff and nice spacious rooms for the price, perfect value ! Didn't have breakfast, nearby is a good Italian restaurant with good coffee and breakfast. Clean swimming pool with some beds. Would definitely visit again
