“Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2014

Nice relaxed resort with nice and clean bungalows. Not to far from the beach. If you likle to relax or are looking for a good starting point on the island this is great. We paid 1000 baht for 2 persons a night. There are shops in the neighbourhood and the restaurant has delicies food.
We rented a car as soon as we arrived on Koh Samui to avoid the expensive Taxi's and to have freedom to go around.

We stayed a Harry's for 4 nights. It's quiet, clean, and comfortable. The pool is great, the grounds peaceful, and our standard bungalow was spacious with good air con. Also, the wifi was the best we've had in Asia and worked absolutely everywhere - bungalow, pool, resturaunt, etc.

The resturaunt is good, but spotty. The curries are great and a good value, but breakfast (not included with the room) is average and a little expensive, although the coffees are good. But, there's a market nearby and plenty of other places to eat within 100 meters.

A few tips. The
beach is a 5-10 minute walk. But, you can take a left out the entrance and cut through the neighboring resort, which takes 3-5 minutes. Once on the beach, head
right 200 meters or so (past the resort) until you hit Buddah Bar. There are several massage places, and Buddah Beach Massage is great (and cheap). Buddah bar does good cocktails (100-150 baht, beer 50 baht), and is run by a friendly lady who makes some thai food at lunch as well. Any of the massage places, or the bar, will let you use their beach chairs or hits at no charge if you buy something. So, for 250 baht ($8 USD) you can get a massage and a chair/umbrella for the day. It's 100 baht for a chair at any of the resorts, so this is a great deal. We definitely recommend this stretch of beach, near Buddah Bar - massage and bar but no resorts, so you'll have the water to yourself...

This is an ideal place for a family stay in Maenam beach. All individual large bungalows, ( ours was 2 bedroom ), set in nice gardens with a pool. Restaurant is very good & reasonably priced, staff are friendly & helpful. Excellent beach is 5 minutes walk away & there's a good choice of restaurants in the village, 2 minutes walk away.
We also rented cars from the guy opposite Harrys & found him to be a straightforward & honest operator.

Room Tip: Rooms 8 & 10 are both 2 bedroom

I love everything about this lovely property, their little garden, their small path, their ambience, clean bungalow, they actually located on Mae Name beach, they just do not face the beach. But it doesn't matter because you can literally walk to the beach. We arrived at Lipa Noi Pier late evening, it cost us taxi of 500THB to get to the hotel.

Harry's Bungalow is actually in the same entrance of Lomprayah Pier if you come from the main road. Convenient stores are hard to miss, there is a laundry service nearby too. There is just small thing that their water in swimming pool tasted a little bitter, but we were swimming at night, I'm sure it was because of some leave or flower fell from the tree.

Room Tip: Take a Family room of two connecting bedrooms, it's not only convenient but very worth every pen...

I been in the area for 5 days and we tried different restaurants.
Unfortunately we tried this restaurant only the last day.
The food is really good, and the price is really competitive, for a dinner for 2, we spend 800 bath (with tip), and we had beer, coke two appertisers and two mains.

This is just outside the Samui Buri Resort, so if you want you can step out and 200 meters far on the right there is this restaurant.

Strongly suggested, because in terms of quality only John's Garden is probably better, but this is something like 30% cheaper.

I was lucky enough to stay in such a beautiful resort along with my friends at a comparatively low cost. Cabs are quite expensive their and it resulted in costing us 900 Baht from beach to Harry's Bungalow (hardly 5 minutes drive) but that loss was overcome by the kind of food and ambiance we found there. Though swimming pool was not as clean as we expected it to be (may be because of low season) but overall it is a reasonable place to live.

BEWARE OF LIZARDS IN THE ROOM IF YOU'RE NOT FRIENDLY WITH THEM

We went there with 6 others friend in the middle of may 2014.
The domain was almost empty because of low season.
We rent one 4-people bungalow and one 3-people one.
Bungalows really match the pictures and the all place really looks like a small jungle with many beautiful trees and flowers.
The 3-people bungalow has no AC for the 1-bed room, only fan
The safety box is only a simple box not even fixed on the wall with a single padlock.

When you arrive by Lompraya ferry boat, don't take a taxi, you can easily reach Harrys, 5 minutes walk away.

The staff is okay but don't count on them to give you discounts or other information about what to do during your stay, you'd rather go to other travel agencies or the small rental shop just in front of Harrys.

The swimming pool is nice but the water is kind of salty.

About the restaurant, it is ok when you cannot go anywhere else but you can easily find cheaper and better food around.

To sum up, if you look for a cheap place, go for it but be prepared to rent a car or motorbike to go to major points of interest
