“Clean Rooms...Thats about it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2012

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights during a Full Moon Party. The rooms were decent and clean, but the hotel is run down, dirty (there were dirty plates in the hallway from people ordering room service and leaving them outside the room to be picked up, which stayed there the whole time we were there) and we did not feel safe there-anybody could walk in and out of the place as reception is a room outside the hotel which you did not have to pass to enter the building, the floors were tiled and always wet so was alway slipping when walking and the elevator kept breaking down as well as having a hole in the floor!
The staff also were unhelpful and did not have a clue. We booked the boat to Koh Samui, which included transport to harbour, however on the day, the staff turned round and said they could no longer take us to the harbour and we had to find our own way there. We ended up dragging our 30KG bags ourselves down there which was not fun in 40oc heat!
Very close to where all the action is for the Full Moon, but nothing else to do so I would suggest staying elsewhere and travelling in for the Full Moon Party.

In all of my travels this is the WORST place i have ever stayed in my life! Stayed there with a group of 20 friends for the full moon party and wished we had caught the ferry from Koh Samui!!! The people in reception were SO dumb and spoke poor English, then they tried to trick us into going to this really expensive dinner! They also lost our reservation and it took an hour to sort it out! We booked for 3 people in our room but we arrived to 2 single beds which had tears in the sheets! 2 days after the full moon party the blood through the walkways was never cleaned up, room service plates never removed and the linen still piled up in the hallways! Worst part apart from people urinating into the pool from the dance floor was the shower - argh absolute nightmare!!!!!! The free buffet breakfast was stone cold and so disgusting we ran out looking for the nearest restaurant! DONT EVER STAY HERE!!!!

I stayed here for 4 nights in feb over the full moon party week. First of all the elevator to level 3 were my room was didnt work, the button to level 3 didnt work so we had to go upto 4 and walk down a level. I found cockroaches in my bedroom, the toilet seat was broken. One night i went to sleep and i woke up my friend during the night asking if he could smell something, it smelt like gas and it was coming from the aircon, it was so bad we turned it off and never put it back on. The foam party was really average, its not worth staying at drop in for them so dont be sucked and find yourself a better place on the beach to stay. It was also abit of a walk from the beach and main part of the shops. The only good thing about this our room was the amazing view we had of the beach looking towards koh samui, each night we could see the sunset and the balcony was very large and the best thing about the room we had. I still had a great time at the drop in but i wouldnt stay again.

my friend and i stayed here for the most recent Full Moon party 7/2/12-11/2/12. Ofcourse we had to book a 5 night minimum...
the staff are rude and unhelpful, the shower didnt work-it would turn on for 10 seconds, then off for about 20, then be boiling hot and then slowly die out cold again (very annoying after a beach party or swimming all day).
I didnt sleep for 5 nights, the bed was so uncomfortable and could feel every single spring, with rock hard pillows, not nice after a night out.
Swimming in the pool is almost impossible due to the "foam party", which was a poor excuse for a selling point. They didnt not put enough chlorine in it and you could not see the bottom of the pool for the next 5 days-very disappointing as you pay extra for this facility.
The "gym", is open to viewing from the pool with less than adequate equipment.
The breakfast is a poor excuse for food, served once at 6:30am and i assume not replaced at all, by 8:30 the food is gone or stone cold.
Our sheets were not changed, and we had to request this twice, and we only got given 1 towel and 1 water, when there was clearly two people. they also didnt clean the bathroom, purely made the bed and literally threw the pillows on.
Also, if you are planning to stay here for full moon, even though only about a 5 minute walk from the party and main streets, you get hit with a 100BAHT entry fee, which you cannot avoid, a bit annoying.
I would not recommend and definitely not stay here again.

Stayed here for 6 nights with 2 friends. Shared a double room with a/c an hot water for 500 baht per night which is about £10. Massive beds as we were 3 in a bed no problem. Big rooms. No mosquito nets but we were fine as room is air tight when windows are closed. The cheap rooms are basic but perfectly good and safe. 2 lovely swimming pools. The hotel was empty when we were there maybe about 4 out of 80 ish rooms taken. Was so quiet considering the area is more of a party town. Had the pools to ourselves everyday. It's about 5-10 mins to beaches but it's in the middle of all the shops an restaurants on the top of a small hill. Thought location was good. U get what you pay for... I would reccommend it to all my friends. Don't be put off by reviews there to fussy for paying £10 a night. It's clean and safe an quiet. The outside looks shabby but inside isn't.

We stayed at this hotel when the full moon party wasn't on.....so i'm pretty sure we were the only ones staying at the hotel. It was creepy, dirty, most of the lights were faulty, and when it rained there was a river flow down the corridor past our bedroom door. Please don't stay here unless you just want a place to sleep.

The only good thing about this place was the Same Same burger place at the bottom of the street. We went as a big group of girls for full moon party and though we are never one to shy away from a dancefloor, the constant music at the Drop In was torture. From 9am to midnight the same playlist was on repeat and seemed to get louder and louder throughout the day. Not good when you want to recover from the antics of nights prior.
When we went in January there was an 80 to 20 boy girl ratio, making it quite intimidating to go for a swim when all balconies circle the pool and can watch from above.
Beds were firm, so firm we woke up with bruises on whatever bony prominence we had laid on the night before. Room service was usually cold when it got to the room.
It is a decent 10 mins walk to the party scene, which involves a nice tour of the slums of koh phangan.
All in all would not recommend this place. A few friends stayed at Coco Huts which was prime location and frankly paradise compared to Drop Inn. Tommy Resort by the beach is also one I would recommend.

Room Tip: Request not to be near the speakers
