Totally recommend Ban's! I couldn't be more satisfied in my 6 days for the open water and advanced diving courses with Anthony G as my instructor. Funny, professional and great teacher. The place attend all needs for travelers with tours, tickets and it is close to 7eleven, atms, bars, clubs. fits all budgets. Great place to get your certification, chill... More

Went to get open water diver license, ended up staying and doing advanced open water diver course too! Dived 30m, saw a ship wreck, dived at night, had an amazing time. Amazing instructors helped me a lot as I get nervous doing the deep dives...really, really recommend :)

I stayed this hotel and it was really convenience place to go to the scuba diving. This hotel has a scuba diving center and easy to book the diving tour. Instructors and dive masters are excellent so I could enjoy the scuba diving during my stay. Breakfast were included. There are 3 choices and all of them were delicious. Room... More

We stayed for a night! Big group of friends on our way to Koh Samui. The rooms are very good, however ants and other bugs could be found. Complimentary fruits at arrival were really great. View toward the beach is breathtaking. Breakfast is served as a choice of 3 types of menus which were excellent while enjoying the lovely view.... More

Did my open water course with Ban's in August. Free accommodation that came with the course was fairly basic but did the job (we upgraded to hot showers)! The dive course itself I really enjoyed but the classes can be large and some of the instructors are more attentive then others! We had a group of 8 with one instructor... More

This is the first time I dive, which was one of the formative experiences of my life. The hotel itself cozy and nice. There are simple rooms with a fan, but I recommend upgrading at 600 baht to a simple room with an air conditioner. There are really luxurious rooms with the addition price (on the basic room) for up... More

The rooms are nothing like the picture. They will give you very bad room (worst than an hostel) and they will try to upgrade you to an expensive room! If you still didn't upgrade they will treat you bad. They won't be nice anymore and even the staff didn't help me and my wife with our luggage! Avoid it unless... More

The hotel- we stayed at the delluxe hilltop. Very nice room with amazing view of the island. Only downside- it is a bit far away from the center and you have to climb a lot of steps up the hill to get there, so make your choice. The staff was very friendly and helpful even though reception closes at 21:00.... More
