Reviewed January 6, 2010

From the warm welcome as you arrive to the heart-felt goodbye the staff here are warm and offer great service.
Our room was clean and fresh everday. Good, free internet connection.
The location is not perfect as it's on the the main road but minimal noise at night.
The beautiuful Chaweng Noi Beach (better than Chaweng in my opinion) is only a 500m stroll away across the road and accessed through a nearby resort.
Not walkable to shops, noisy clubs, convinience strores etc. but I think that's a good thing although it is walkable to beach-side restaurants.
if you get a motorbike here, you're set. Great stay.

We were very satisfied with the hotel as such, and especially the service. The owners were truly friendly and made our stay a real pleasure.
The rooms are spacious, in excellent condition and very clean.
The location is right across Chaweng Noi beach, and in walking distance to the restaurants and shops in Chaweng Noi.
Nothing negative to mention.

This small family-run hotel is very well located, just 3-5 min walk from the best beach in Koh Samui (Chaweng Noi). It's a no-frills, simple hotel (without a pool), but with big and clean rooms, a very friendly staff, free wi-fi/desktop computers with internet and great value for money. The food at the hotel is also cheap and good, being a great alternative for the more expensive beach restaurants. I definitely recommend this hotel and will return to it in my future visits to Koh Samui.

Stayed here for 4 nights before going to ko phangan and again for 1 night on our return. Excellent size rooms with air con mini bar kettle tea/coffee tv and free wifi if you take your lap top. Paid less than £30 a night and rooms larger than hotels you would pay double this price. Recommend if possible you have a room at back of hotel as the road at the front is very noisy. Prefer this location to chaweng, which i found too big and not very attractive. The beach restaurants are lovely and v cheap, I recommend beach love and the one to the right of it sorry cant remember name. there are also a few beach beds that are free next to a little food shack and the jet ski rental, we used these every day and ate lunch from them. The owners and daughter of this hotel are lovely and cant do enough for you, its a very personal service and they really make you feel very welcome.

We stayed at the Chaweng Tara for 4 nights and were very impressed. The staff were all very helpful, and were keen to give extra information about the local area. The rooms are big and clean, and internet access in reception is free.

There is no pool but the hotel is a stone's throw from the beach. Also it's worth asking at reception about using other hotels' pools while you're there.

The breakfast (not included) was a bit disappointing but otherwise I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Really loved this small family run hotel, met some really amazing friends in the staff here. Our room was just a normal standard room but when we walked in, we were pleasantly surprised. The room was huge as was the bed and the finishing touches in the room and bathroom were perfect. Although it is not on the main Chaweng beach, it is only a short taxi ride away, about 10 minutes and won't cost more than 100 THB per person each way. Also, right across the road from this hotel, a 5 minute walk,is Chaweng Noi beach which is alot quieter than the main Chaweng beach but has lots of lovely beach restaurants and a lovely beach. The staff go out of there way to help you book day trips, ferry trips to other islands etc and even have a hotel taxi which costs the same price as a normal taxi on the street. Would definitely stay here again when we next visit Samui, very good value for money and a lovely hotel!

The lovely staff at this hotel consistently went above and beyond what was required of them. They helped us with everything from giving recommendations to driving us around. The rooms are clean and aircon is awesome. Location is close to beach, charming local restaurants and cheap laundry service. Free internet is also available. Would definitely stay there again.
