A group of four of us stayed at the waterfront for two nights to relax and to head across to koh phangnyan for the full moon party. This was a great place, although they double booked our room they gave us another suite at discounted rate as an apology, this was a lovely room (no ten) and had 2 double rooms and a living area which was great, just not the bungalow we had booked. The staff were super friendly and helpful, in particular Carole, she was great and booked all our transportation to the party and then from Samui to Phuket where we went next.
One word of warning and this was no fault of the waterfront just a note for those booking transport, always go with the main VIP bus service, not " the other option" we had a nightmare and got totally ripped off going across to Phuket, it took 14 hours and we got done for an extra 300 Byatt to get taken right the way to where we needed to be on Phuket, then to be dumped somewhere entirely different and have to pay for a taxi to get us across Phuket anyway, nightmare!!
I would also recommend the fishermans market which occurs periodically on the streets on bophut, so many amazing things to buy and eat and drink!!
Anyway the waterfront was great, friendly, and very chilled, highly recommended!! We had a lovely time thanks to all there!
