“Dirty underwear in room, bloodstained mattress, unhelpful staff.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2008

We are generally skeptical of one extremely negative review on Trip Advisor amidst several positive reviews. As such, we booked one night at the Koh Samui beach apartments notwithstanding the recent review describing a bloodstained mattress in the room. Well, we must have received the same room, with a myriad of additional, SERIOUS problems. First, a bloodstained mattress was propped against the wall in the hallway, corroborating the earlier review. Second, the bathroom not only had a disgusting odor emanating from a floor drain (as mentioned in the previous review), but what appeared to be vomit was streaked all over the bathroom floor. Third, we discovered a pair of DIRTY (....trust us, they were NOT CLEAN) men's UNDERWEAR in the drawer. Finally, and most upsetting - the hotel employee actually accused us of lying about the men's underwear (claiming that the previous guests were women so it was impossible that soiled men's underwear were left behind); he was extremely hostile when we went downstairs to complain about this, and the other conditions. We approached him in a non-confrontational manner, and this employee (who refused to give us his name) began shrieking that we were "Stupid Canadians girls" (we are both 25 year old, professional women, btw). We arranged to leave ASAP and stayed instead at the Akwa guesthouse across the street. So, to sum up, EXTREMELY unsanitary, dirty conditions in the room, horrible odors in the bathroom, and unbelievably hostile, verbally abusive staff. This review is in no way exaggerated - you've been warned!

Blood stains in the bed and devastating odors in the bathroom. Please stay away! Both the hotel and the booking agent LateStays.com, refused to assist in the matter. The owner, who is spoken highly of in reviews, is apparently unavailable since it is the weekend. Even though check in said there were vacancies last night, miraculously, there are no available rooms today. Photos to be posted upon our return home.

A great alternative to the busy area of Chaweng beach. Located on the South end of the Island, this is the quieter area. About 20 min walk from the main club area or a quick ride on one of the local pick up taxi's. Run by a Canadian, apts are attached to the Seascape resort. Use of their facilties (pool, chairs etc) is allowed and only 15 second walk to the beach. Good size rooms at good prices. Office also has a travel agent who can book you local tours as well as flights.

I last stayed at Samui Beach Apartments in September `05
Samui Beach Apartments are a very viable alternative to the bungalows that are so popular on Koh Samui as you get the best of both worlds because you share full facilities with Seascape Bungalows eg pool ,deckchairs (pool & beach ) & restaurant facilities but with so much more living space.
Room facilities include ,king size double bed, kitchenette (microwave,tea,coffee etc ) Local & satellite TV , hot cold shower ,remote controlled thermostat A/C, complimentry water in fridge & plenty of living area.There is also a travel office to help you with anything from sightseeing to car hire
Samui Beach Apartments are exceptionally well priced . A standard room is 1500 Baht per nite in high season , 1200 Baht in low season & 1000 Baht per nite if you stay 2 weeks or longer.
There are 10 rooms all up including 2 that are especially designed for families.

Another great advantage that this accomodation has is it`s location,it is situated at South Chaweng which in my opinion has the best beach & water quality on Samui & is quieter than main Chaweng yet only a 15-20 min walk or 5 min songtaew ride away from the main shopping,restaurant & entertainment precinct of Chaweng.

Everything has been enjoyable in my 2 visits here from the Canadian part owner to the room attendants.
