On reading some of the more recent reviews namely 'chelseacasual' (is that a joke name or what)and the other one star review I can only surmise that the Waterfront is a victim of its own success and these reviews have somehow been posted by the opposition who are jealous of their success. How else can you explain remarks that bare no relation to any of the other reviews?
I have stayed at the Waterfront many times, despite being able to afford accomodation 3 times the price I preffer the homely atmosphere. Just to reiterate the staff are welcoming the food is great(Ihave the girth to show for it).
I feel sorry for the owners who when you meet them you will realise they bend over backwards to make your stay happy and comfortable. Perhaps some of the opposition should take a leaf out of thier book instead of posting malicous reviews on trip advisor? Maybe these bad reviews have been posted by disgruntled guests, but there description of The Waterfront is totally inacurate. These are hard times and I fear some resort to desperate measures.
The next time I am on Samui I will stay at The Waterefront because it is the best place to stay on samui. When I stay there I stay for 3 weeks at a time but I recieve no more or less attention than folks that stay there for 3 days. It's a great place to indulge yourself in whatever way you wish. I highly recommend it.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Family run, small, select and peaceful, yet only steps away from excellent restaurants, bars and boutiques.All rooms are beachfront and the view of the sea and outlying islands is spectacular. Many guests extend their stay, recommend us to others or return themselves, often to meet other guests who have now become friends. Its like coming home, they say. Lots of little touches to make you feel welcome including free pick-up and free internet. ... more less
