I've stayed at the Mallorca Rooms for almost a week last December, including Christmas. That was my first experience at a "room" in Thailand since before that I have only stayed at hotels/huts/hostels.
The owners, Sylvia and Peter, are wonderful people and create a warm atmosphere. Boy, they even share their fridge and appliances with their guests :) I honestly loved them, even if communication wasn't always very obvious, Sylvia speaking mostly Spanish (but we still managed to chat like girls do about men and go shopping together :)), Peter speaking Spanish and some English. I had a great Christmas party with them, some of the guests and some visitors.
I haven't seen all the rooms (I think there are 8 altogether, but not sure), but you can see mine :) I got this double bed during my stay that you see a picture off. My room was spacious, with a little desk with a chair inside, a small bedtime table, and two small open-shelves units for clothing, a good fan fitted in. The bathroom is basic but good enough - it does seem they have invested money in the rooms, all fittings are new and modern, a simple cold-water shower plug but the floor is kinda skewy so water off the shower gets away quickly down the drain. Outside each room was fitted with a small table and two chairs. VERY clean.
The only thing that was not wonderful were the beds - like in Thailand, too hard. When I got the double bed though I got a real mattress which was real comfy :)
Beach is a short walk out, the BhoPhut main street close by, you don't really need much on a budget and I was actually very surprised I got this quality at their price.
I'm sure I'll visit Koh Samui again and stay there, if only to meet Sylvia and Peter again :)
Sylvia and Peter - all the best for 2014 New Year!!!
