I stayed here for 5 nights and enjoyed the facilities of this resort very much.
Great swimmingpool, 1 minute walk to the beach, the friendly staff! What more can you wish for?
It's in the middle of Lamai, so if you are looking for some rest, maybe this is not the resort for you (although it is fairly quit at night)
If you want bars, clubs and markets within less than 2 minutes walking, this is your place.
Rooms are quit sober, but absolutely complete en very clean.
I recommend to choose a poolview room, very nice!

We stayed here for the 2nd week of our honeymoon. This hotel is in a great location, smack bang in the centre of Lamai, and a 5 minute walk to the beach. The hotel is more for family groups, especially if you're eastern European. I think we were the only English people there. And the other reviews are correct regarding the sun loungers, you need to get out there before 6.30am to secure a lounger, otherwise they are all taken. The hotel is also right behind a nightclub so beware if you're in a room near the reception, which we were. Breakfast was inedible, but i highly recommend Scoops across the road by Subway, the best breakfast and french toast ever!!

The staff were great, and our room was always clean, although they did take ages to clean and make the room up each morning. The shower was a bit crap though, constantly going hot and cold and you couldn't angle it so you could stand under it, it could only be pointed at the cubicule walls. Just as well Thailand is hot!!

Whilst there wasn't really anything wrong with this hotel, it wasn't what we expected, and not really a romantic resort.

We spent 8 days in the Am Samui Palace in July 2012. We selected this hotel due its location and review comments. We had the pool view (access) room - the balcony was good place to spend time. The hotel met our expectations. The location is good. The breakfast is not perfect - I would say that it is okay but you would eat the same food during your staying. As for the pool, it was good enough - but I would recommend to clear it more frequently.
I would recommend this hotel for couples who wants to spend time at Lamai. It is good enough for its price.

Room Tip: The rooms with pool access at the first floor is good enough.

We stayed here for 13 days in a poolside room. Large room with ensuite shower/toilet. Mattress fairly hard but slept well.50 metres to main Lamai street and 150 metres to beach. Breakfasts were a choice of 5, we mixed it up by one ordering omelet and one fried rice and halving the portions on our plates. Pool was lovely, pool loungers seen better days. Staff were excellent, a few langauge problems but part of the fun, we would go back

Room Tip: Pool side rooms were good, just hear the street music

I had 6 days in Ko Samui, the first three at the Am Samui, and i just loved the location, it was right off the main street in Lamai beach, at right opposite the night market . Even though it was just off main street, it wasn't noisy, the hotel has its own charm, and is a great place for families to go. The rooms were big with big balconies, nothing flash, but had all the necessities you needed.
I loved breakfasts and the super friendly staff, and for the price, I thought it was great

The hotel met our expectations and we enjoyed our 6 days stay. The room was clean and large, the madress was good and we had a nice balcony. The staff was always welcoming and smiling, from cleaning ladies to reception staff.

During our stay families with children occupied the pool area. Unfortunaty, children did not know how to behave around the pool area. Thus, children (and also the parents) very screaming and shouting all day long around the pool area and toys were left in the pool which was quite annoying. Of course, we can't blame the hotel for this.

At nights, huge and noisy concerts were going on until 6 am in the morning at the Swing Bar close to the hotel. We woke up several times during the nights.

We had a pool view room no. 215 with balcony. If you are not on a tight budget we recommend you to book a pool view room as the view and location are nicer than the cheapest ones.

It seemed the hotel is very popular with families travelling with children. If you are travelling as a couple you might consider a less family oriented hotel.

The breakfast was poor.

Central location,we had a pool suite room with living room and bedroom. The bed was very hard but very quiet even though right in the centre. The breakfast was not good, coffee was awful. Lovely beach and lots of good beachside restaurants and great places to eats in the centre.

Room Tip: Not on the beach but very very near.
