“Love this place!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 8 days (while backpacking around asia) and this was the best place in 3 months! Huge room with aircon (cheaper with fan) was cleaned daily! Spotless! Clean towels and refills of tea and coffee self serve every day! Tv & fridge! Free wifi and free use of the computer in the lobby and also free place to exchange books which ive found unusual in asia! The owner an staff are so friendly and helpful! The best part is the poolside right on beach, free beach loungers! The food is nice too bit expensive for backpackers but average price for the south islands! There is mini mart right on the street along with 3 very cheap thai restaurants! The walk to town is about 15 mins along beach and alot longer by road, quite dark at night but fine through the day! Just get a scooter for 200 baht a day n you can get about easily! If your looking for quiet place to relax then this place is for you! Would 100% come back great value for money!

This place is great, we stayed 6 nights. firstly, don't come here expecting a 5 star resort, HOWEVER you get a lot for your money and the staff are very friendly!

We stayed in a 650 B aircon room (fan is 500 B), it was not the cleanest but very spacious and had all the luxuries we like as backpackers (aircon, hot water, nice bed, fridge, spacious room, balcony). The resort backs onto the beach so its about 10 steps from the pool to the sand. There are lounges around the pool and on the beach (all free).

If you are looking for nightlife this isn't quite the place but is perfect for a relaxing beach stay. We rented a motorbike (which they discounted for us) and went to tesco lotus on the first day, stocked up on cheap breakfast and lunches and ate dinner at the family run restaurant Perm-Poon directly across the main road (GREAT food, very cheap).

This place is half the price of those around it, which were totally empty. If you are backpacking and fancy a relaxing holiday on the cheap, come here!

Positives: Price, beachfront location, clean rooms. Negatives: both very minor - sometimes unreliable wifi in room, restaurant food mediocre.

Much of Ko Samui's beachfront is taken over by high-end resorts, leaving those of us on a budget to find a place that doesn't require walking too far to access the beach. Fortunately, Samui Beach Resort is literally right on Lamai Beach. Even better is a nice pool and restaurant right on the beach. We stayed in one of the remodeled bungalows, 40 steps from the pool. It was very clean, housekeeping was on-top-of-it, AC was nice refrigerator, hot water pot, free instant coffee, tea, TV. The only issue was the electrical wiring to the bathroom - sometimes the switch worked...sometimes we had to hit the box quite hard to make the connection. Our other minor issue was the spotty wifi. It wasn't always reliably working in our room. Oh well. The property rents out scooters for 200 baht/day - well worth it to get around town. The restaurant on site was so-so. Our pizzas were burnt. Chicken salad came with the driest, smallest, flattest strips of chicken that I thought it was chicken jerky. It was inedible. Prices are basic resort food prices, but you can walk 2 minutes to the main street and find 2 authentic Thai restaurants where we ate most of our meals for less 250 baht/2 people including drinks! If you want a swanky experience, walk south on the beach for 3 minutes, climb onto the rocks towards the pink neon Dinky Rock Bar sign. Felt like we were in Miami. So, all-in-all, can't find a better place in all of Samui on a budget. We would stay here again for sure. Enjoy!

Remco the dutch manager is awesome. He advised us about car hire and was genuinely a top bloke. A fantastic yet unintrusive presence he is forever helpful..even giving me a lift back to the hotel on the back of his scooter after I dropped the hire car off. Cheap and cheerful accommodation right near to the beach. Nice food from the beachside restaurant with free use of the hotel canoe available to all guests to go and explore the famous grandmother and grandfather rock right next to the hotel. Lovely and quiet with a chilled atmosphere. Just what you want on holiday. We stayed for 3 days during our travels around southern thailand. Go visit there. Remco is a cracking bloke that deserves the business.

We chose this hotel based on distance from airport so it wouldbe quiet, but also on the beach. Price. Was great, restaurant was good, massage hut was perfect, right on the sand, I literally had one every day. Hotel owner very involved and attentive we would highly recommend.

The resort is away from the main street in lamai so it isn't so loud. It is also about 15 walk from the main town in lamai on the beach. The staff here is very nice and the rooms are wonderful. For the price we paid we definitely got a bang for our buck. It was a least 2/3 cheaper than the resort around it and just as nice. The pool is great and so is the restaurant. However a little pricey for travelers on a budget. It is quiet but also fun if you are looking to meet some people. They have their own private beach and free kayaks. Its also located directly next to the grandmother and grandfather rocks. The staff will help you plan any excursion and will went scooters for 200baht a day.

We originally booked two nights but because it was so nice for the price we extended 6 more days. I highly recommend it for anyone on a budget or those just looking for a simple nice comfortable stay.

Room Tip: The superior bungalows have very thin walls you can hear your neighbors. The Double beds are two tw...
