The hotel looked good at first sight, with a good location and with a wide beach. Me and my girlfriend got one of the bungalows at the front room 739. From the outside the bungalow looked alright, with a nice porch. Inside it also look alright. The bed was awful, it felt like concrete, both the mattress and the pillow.... More

What a pleasure it is to stay here! Staff are helpful and friendly, always returning a friendly smile. You can book trips, get room service, hire mopeds and it's only a short 10 min walk or super quick 3 minute moped ride until you're amongst a plethora of shops, markets and food courts along the buselling Chewang strip. We had... More

I'm here right now, the room is clean but the bathroom never gets hot water and is very dated. The wifi is dreadful. Drops out all the time, slow speed and hard to connect to. The staff don't smile and are argumentative rather than helpful, we have got to the stage where would rather not speak to them as we... More

This is an older resort but beautiful none the less. Our beach bungalow was big and clean, situated right across from the main lobby and the pool at our door step. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We booked the first 10 nights at this location as you are never sure if what you see on line, is what... More

I have visited Koh Samui and Thailand a number of times and never imagined I would have anything negative to say however my visit to the First Bungalow Beach Resort has left me disappointed. Arrived to a rather unfriendly welcome, nothing like what I'm used to from the reception team to be allocated room 1101 (standard room). My advise to... More

bad customer service, seems weird that staff is so rude, unusual for Thai. You get much better service at Ibis in Bophut. They did not say thank you once during my stay Breakfast is also quite disappointing I will not return

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay for our first trip to Koh Samui. We had a bungalow in the beach which allowed us to enjoy the freedom of swimming in the gorgeous water and kicking back on our deck all within walking distance of each other. What we loved most about our bungalow was the fact... More

Reception area personnel spoke little English, rude, argumentative when questioned, had no understanding of customer service, however the bell boy by the name of Win was amazing, he gets my recommendation to CEO. Thank you Win.

We stayed in a beach bungalow for four nights. We spent a lot of time in the room as my partner wasn't feeling well. It was right on the beach, however our view from within the room was mostly people on beach chairs with the ocean behind them and it was easy to see into the room so we therefore... More

I recently stayed in a beach bungalow. The bungalow itself was fine however much older than it looked in the pictures. The location is not ideal - abit far from the main part of town for my liking and they don't offer a free shuttle. During our stay we had 3 main issues: 1. They had run out of alcohol... More
