Car Hire or Taxis?

We are staying at Rockys Resort in March and wonder if we need to hire a car or manage with taxis? Most days we will be around the pool/beach with a restaurant at night but we would like to have a general look around the island.

A general look around the island means car hire is the way to go. Do it by the crooked taxis and you'd lose all your spending money in a day!

I'd contact your resort for prices-they are usually very good at sorting out safe hires as they don't want negative experiences that their guests will complain about. I hesitate to recommend any firms as it then becomes a farang on Thai negotiation ,and while that can and does work,, in tourist areas such as Samui it can often end in tears - yours, not theirs.

Can you hire a car and driver for a day, what would the price of this be around for say 7 people in a 8 seat van
