Just got back from Samui, had a splendid time at Centara Villas. The staff are wonderfully friendly... happy hour at the beach bar is a blast... great restaurant location, lovely beach, beeeyoootiful sunsets!
The just OK...
1. Expect to climb steps! The hotel is built on a hill and the climb from the beach to reception can be a challenge (well for me anyway, not for an athlete)
2. Don't expect too much privacy, the villas are built very close to each other.
3. Shower pressure is crummy.
1. Clean, pretty rooms with kickass aircon (which you WILL need, it's hot!)
2. Super food and service.
3. Lovely beach and pools (although the main pool is being renovated).
The hotel is a fair distance from the main towns (which we liked... it's quiet). The food can be pricey compared to local restaurants (roughly double)... but that's BAU and it's very good. Taxi's will get you anywhere at a very reasonable price. There are a couple of restaurants 5 min walk away that we enjoyed (The Barracuda was really good).
Overall... loved it!
