“It was a nice enough hotel, but... (many but's)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Arriving at the hotel it looks really nice and the staff is friendly, but only one spoke a tolerable English.

Rooms are nice, but not like the photos. Rooms are dressed on the photos but those dressings are not actually there when you check in, so the appearance is somewhat disappointing and bare. The finish is not top shelve and woodwork looks simple.

I enjoyed the open air bathroom

Shelves in the closet were dusty and had been for some time

The A/C unit blows directly on your head while sleeping, so turn off a/c or sleep with head in the foot end of the bed

Restaurant is situated in the street outside the resort. It looks like a diner and has no view but an empty street.

Pool area is a nice place to relax. If you can find a free sun bed. I think there are only 7 sun beds to 17 rooms.

Hotel is nice and quiet if you don't count frogs quacking all night. Hotel is on the wrong side of the main road circling Samui and traffic is mostly tight.

All in all it is not an expensive place and things are basically okay, but it is easy to find better alternatives in the same price range. I will not go back to this hotel, but I will not advice others against it. I am sure many will find it okay.

Unpretetious and friendly service. Spacious, well maintained rooms. We arrived late at night, and left next day to Koh Tao. Perfect for that purpose. Lady borrowed her own bike to us to quickly get breakfast before the pick-up. Recommended.

Samui Heritage Resort is slightly off the beaten track but well worth the find. It's location is opposite the "second entrance" to Fisherman's Village, down a small road and in a cul de sac. Simply cross the main road away from the sea at the second entrance and u will find it!!! On arrival we were greeted by the sweetest Thai lady, very helpful and at once gave us a glass of chilled orange juice, so welcome as it was extremely hot. The resort, set amongst large lovely trees is really very charming. Our room/ bungalow was spacious, clean with a good size bathroom en suite. The resort also has a pool, however the water was not chilled so didn't offer the " cool down and relax factor that was so badly needed!!!!... Having said that it was an enjoyable stay, we paid 900 bht per night, indeed very reasonable for a lovely place. We would quite happily stay there again!!!!!

Room Tip: Perhaps request a room away from the pool, if you would like complete peace...and book well in advan...

Before going, I read a review regarding the outdoor toilets and was not looking foward to this place. However it turned out to be very nice. It was in a good location beside fishermans village and 5 minute walk to beach. The pool was lovely. We had an apartment kind of bungalow with two bedrooms and two bathrooms for the three of us. One of bathrooms had No roof but was still indoors and the other bathroom was totally normal. They didn't present any problems, they just advised to keep bathroom door closed to avoid insects inside. Staff were helpful regarding booking tours etc too. Would recommend!

We stayed here in April 2012 - We were greeted with drinks while we signed in. The grounds and buildings were lovely. We paid £17 per night....£17!!!!! a real bargain, we were fortunate in that our room wasn't available as another guest was overstaying so they put us up in their top suite very very impressed - the beach and restaurants are about 120 meters away a short walk it also looks like they are deveolping a walkway there. There are shops and restaurants nearby as well just be careful crossing the main road. We ate at a restaurant on the beach I had chicken fried rice very tasty and lush...ended up having two portions beautiful beach would stay here anytime oh and staff were amazing make sure you tip them well.

Stayed here for a week in April. The staff were excellent - friendly, helpful and nothing was ever too much trouble.
I had a one bed 'bungalow' - adequate for my needs. Bedroom had plenty of space; the open air bathroom took a bit of getting used to - but was clean and adequate standard. Sitting room / kitchen had fridge and kettle with free water and coffee / tea and a table to eat from. Suited my needs.
Swimming pool was small but was clean and was adequate for a dip.
The hotel did involve crossing a busy road but opposite was a cut through road ensuring you were in the Fishermans Village within 5 minutes - and on holiday, a walk around in the evening was more than acceptable.
The price I paid for the room, I'd definitely stay again.

Booked this hotel as a stopover before ferrying over to Koh Tao. The driver had some issues finding it as actually located behind a empty strip mall (this alone should tell you how far away it is from the beach). Its a small hotel with an appropriately sized pool to go along with it. The room itself was clean but I was not personally a fan of the outdoor bathroom, especially going out there in the middle of the night with all the mosquitoes.

The perks was that it was located 400m from the Fishing Village (down a dark road, but seemed safe enough). There was a 7-11 next door and a pharmacy on the other side which was convenient. Hotel could arrange ferry with pickup directly without additional fees.

For the price and cleanliness, it is definitely a value for the $25-45/night paid but I would look elsewhere for longer stays as it seems a waste to come to Koh Samui and not stay somewhere located closer to the beach.

Room Tip: Pick up mosquito coils from the pharmacy next door to flush out the mosquitos in the room or clear o...
