Help needed Urgently!! Master Card problems in Ko Samui? Am...

Can anyone tell me if there is an issue accepting Master Cards in Koh Samui? The travel agent that I used to book my stay in Koh Samui is having troble with taking master card (system under development and won't be back on until April 06). I am traveling currently in Asia and only have 2 master cards with me. Please tell me my Master cards is good in most of the places!!!

Please tell me my cards are OK.

Would appreciate comments from my fellow traveller who is currently there or had just returned from the island past week.

Thanks

I had heard that there were issues with MC in Thailand, never used one though all I had was VISA but here is a solution.

You can go into any bank in Thailand and get cash from your Credit Card. This is NOT a cash advance. They run your card and give you cash! Just bring your passport along.

So if you do run into problems just go get Bhat and you will be fine
