We stayed in a beach villa. Great in the evening adn early in the morning but the beach is very busy (beacause very nice) during the day. The restaurant is good but not terrific, breakfast is pleasant with a nice see view. The personnel attitude is below the Thai average: - We booked two beach front villa, when we arrived,...

The beach itself is great. Unfortunately not so was the hotel - very basic room, old grey-colored towels and bedding, awful breakfast. Also the constant canalization smell in and outside the room (we stayed on the ground floor, but you can smell it everywhere around the hotel).

We stayed here for 2 weeks in the top floor Grand Seaview room. It was perfect, we loved it. The room is spacious with views for miles, I can't vouch for any other rooms as they have a few different types for different budgets but this was our 27th wedding anniversary so we went for a little luxury and it...

We spent 3 nights here in a Beachfront Balcony Suite. The room was very nice, on the second floor with a beautiful view of the rocks on the cove and palm trees. The room was large, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was okay - it was buffet rice, curry, eggs, and fruit which were generally cold. You could order one hot...

Not my first time in Samui ; but I've always stayed in Chaweng area since it's so central. Found this family friendly beach a short drive away from chaweng with fantastic massage overlooking the sea. Nice friendly staff and good , cheap massage considering it's a tourist destination. Clean waters to waddle in but lots of small rocks in the...

I am glad you found us! Many of our guests like the fact we are on a quiet and relaxing beach but still close enough to Lamai and Chaweng to enjoy the bars, restaurants and other entertainment there.

Firstly, the beach is great - a beautiful bay with clear water and some snorkelling opportunities. Secondly, the view you get from your beach front room is excellent and the rooms are clean. However - you can hear the traffic going by behind the building. I would spend a bit more cash and book the Crystal Bay Yacht Club as...

Thank you for your review I am glad you loved the beach and enjoyed the views from your room. Economy and Standard rooms do get some traffic noise and are priced to reflect this. Seaview rooms and up have no traffic noise.

Good beach location. Area around beach is nice (massage, foods, water).. Hotel has large room, however are noisy and basic door security (just a bolt to block your room)... Pool is nice and you have a bar with nice cocktails. Is good value for money, but I won't described as luxury experience or the best beach in island

We are in our 3rd week of 3 at this hotel and despite a terrible unseasonal week of solid, often torrential rain, causing island chaos, we have had a great time with our friends Julie and Brendan. We made sure that we didn't sit and sulk in the room, we just bought ponchos and carried on regardless. We are in...

We had deluxe beachfront room which was so close to the beach (via stairs). You could see the ocean from bed! Breakfast was very average, coffee was terrible. Can grab local taxi to chaweng for 100baht pp. Can barter down. Great little beach to snorkel
