Reviewed February 8, 2009

Samui beach resort is located on the best section of Lamai Beach in Samui. Great value and decent facilities. Staff was friendly.

We bookeed over the net and thought we had booked a room with a/c and a mini bar but when we arrived, we were lead to a dingy old room with a fan and no fridge by a neanderthal dragging his knuckles along the dirt path. So we opted for a more exencive room. cockroaches in the wardrobe, mosquitoes everywhere, the floor of the room was disgusting and the smell of mould was rank!!! STAY AWAY IS OUR ADVICE

We booked four nights through a TAT. when we arrived we noticed the reception is down a dirt track and not near the rooms, there is no security either.

The rooms were disgusting and the bathrooms smelt of egg. our first room had a green carpet with stuff growing in it so we moved to a slightly cleaner room.

There is no security so anyone can walk in off the beach. The pool is clean but the food is nasty.
The saftey deposit box closes suspisiously at ten so if you've had a night out you can't lock your money away when you return.

Our room had a dodgy lock on the handle, we returned one night to find the saftey deposit box shut, we had our money, passports and travellers cheques with us as we had hired a car that day, we went to bed and locked the door, at 4am we woke up to someone running out of our room with everything of value to us!

DO NOT TRUST THE STAFF, HOTEL OR THINK YOUR SAFE IN THESE ROOMS!

We stayed for 2 nights. The chalet was good and clean. The pool area/bar has a good atmosphere and the staff are welcoming. It is a distance from Lamai which we found ok as Lamai is a bit tacky.

We booked before coming to this hotel expecting a clean, beautiful room for 800 bahts but what a shame... The outside bungallow appearance was dirty and the inside, the same. We found some fresh mouse [--] in our bed, bathroom was unclean and full of sand... We were so disappointed ... but we found , very close to this hotel , an other bungallow BUATHONG RESORT, so nice people and so cheap (600 bahts), everything was clean...

I stayed round about two weeks there (April 2008) at first out of the reason my Diving school was nearby.
The Light:
The very friendly Bar stuff with wich I had an very funny time, they tried to learn me Thai and handled me like an good friend
(speciall thanks to Egg,Toy and pumkin)
The bar and pool area are nice (simple & plain) and nearby the beach, food and beverages where also ok but like the rooms a little bit too expensive

The Shadow:
The rooms are overpriced !!!
( Stayed on other Places nearby too)
the bungalow was clean and functionelly but not very cosy- just an room with white walls) so its not an amusement to stay in room. Also an minus- the other staff (reception+manager) was in oppinion to the bar staff uninterested unfriendly and rude.

Overall an simple beach resort for an exaggerated price
for less money you get much better accomodations nearby
(f.e Bill Resort)

Spent 800bht for a fan room (quite pricey) which was dirty and full of damp and rot. First night just about to sleep when we noticed our entire bed was full of life - bugs everywhere.
I spoke to reception who didnt at first believe me, so they sent a member of staff to investigate who promotely supported my story. We were given another room, but i'm sorry to say this was just as bad. Having been refused a refund We left that night at 10.30pm looking for another room.

I retuturned the following day on no less than 3 occasions asking for a refund which was refused.

Disgusting place, please don't go through what we went through. There are plenty of much nicer resorts and even cheaper!
