Arriving from a very quiet beach on Koh Phangan the hotel was initially a bit of a shock...it's squeezed in among many beachfront hotels on a busy part of Lamai beach. However the pool / bar scene overlooking the beach is stylish with groovy seating and it's easy to adapt to - even if your preference is generally more rustic. Beach restaurant in the evenings is cool, elegant and a wonderful place to relax. Our four and six year old children loved the chaise long we sat at for dinner and the hawkers selling overpriced torches and flashing lights kept them entertained. Though we didn't buy these we were easy targets for the balloon lanterns which you light with candles and send your wishes to the stars. In fact with so many lanterns gracing the skies it's evening long entertainment for the children.
The rooms were nice but the bathroom layout a bit awkward and the smell of drains was persistent and not particularly pleasant. Breakfast was included and rated as the best we had during our 3 week trip. The rooms set up for families is adjoining rooms but without connecting doors.
I wouldn't recommend the hotel to a friend..not because of the hotel itself which I'd give 7 / 10 ..but because I found Koh Samui and Lamai beach generally too busy and I disliked the prevelance of jet skis / luxury motor boats and the absence of traditional thai boats on the water. Koh Phangan would get my vote.
