We have just returned from 2 glorious weeks at this fabulous hotel.
We were greeted with a cold drink & cold towels, heaven after 14 hours on a plane.
Check in was fast and efficient. We were quickly shown to our room which was lovely. After a couple if hours sleep, decided that we would like to look and upgrade to a Boat Suite (nothing wrong with our room but the boat suites are something else). We upgraded to the very front boat suite overlooking the pool 425.
Very glad we did, the cost was reasonable. Incredible suite, worth the money.
I can honestly say, I cannot find fault with this hotel. Everything was great, the staff throughout, must mention Baw, whatta a lovely guy. There were many others to, that all had smiles on their faces and greeted to you whenever you saw them, from Reception staff, cleaners, gardeners, maintenance men and all others we saw. Nothing was any trouble for every member of staff throughout the hotel that we spoke to. A rareity in this industry, a real credit to the management.
Breakfast was plentiful and so much choice. The grounds were well maintained. The general vibe of the place was fantastic. It was clean, our suite was stunning. The grounds were sprayed for mosquitoes at least twice in our 2 week stay.
We had a minor problem with our safe, a small technical glitch, this was rectified within half an hour. Never found language a problem, all spoke good English and to be honest, I know about 5 words in Thai and this was never a problem.
We never return to the same hotel twice but will be returning to this hotel next year as we fell in love with the place and many people are return guests and I can see why.
We have travelled to many places and have never felt so at home and in such a stunning place.
Friends we met in holiday last year recommended this hotel, so glad they did.
A true gem - thank you for a great stay.

A brilliant hotel. Great for families. Clean rooms and amazing swimming pools. Great choice at breakfast and delicious food. Been there 6 times and never been disappointed. I would recommend this hotel.

Great hotel with a nice laid back atmosphere. Wonderful beach right on your doorstep, and really good pools.Good food at the restaurant on the beach (Captain's Table). Nice breakfast with plenty of variety. Good bar near reception with a live singing duo. Our room was nice enough with a really spacious terrace, unfortunately the bathroom let the whole place down. It was quite grubby with stains behind the door and poor finishing. The shower head was not fixed and spun round and round when used, as though possessed! Water then went everywhere leaving floor flooded and slippery.What a shame!
The last but not least thing to mention are the staff. Tremendously helpful and friendly.
We really enjoyed our stay here.

If you want to escape from the backpackers down in Chaweng beach then this is ideal!

It backs straight on to the beach, which has a little beach side bar and free deck chair use (happy hour is always a good shout). We stayed in the middle of the hotel where we just had a standard double room but you can get chalet style huts closer to the beach.

The hotel provide a free shuttle into Chaweng Beach that runs on a timetable alternatively you can get a Tuk Tuk for around 400 Bhat!

We had breakfast but didn't eat in the hotel.

My husband and I found the hotel a bit tired, but clean with great staff, except for the reception where they were generally pretty abrupt and unfriendly from the start.
The gardens were gorgeous and both pools were great. A quiet spot away from the crowds. The beach was OK, but at either end there seemed to be really bad pollution from run-off. We didn't venture into the water because of that. Lots of other people swam though.
The Captain's Choice Restaurant was great with excellent service. We had a good price for the stay which made it worthwhile for a week's break. Unfortunately we find Thailand's poor sewerage and lack of general street cleanliness off putting so will give a cleaner country a try for our next holiday. In saying that, Choeng Mon was much cleaner and friendlier than Chaweng. If you want a cheap, warm break with easy access to the airport, this is worth it.

Me and my wife decided to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng Beach and this hotel in Choeng Mon was a brilliant choice. The staff were great, the room and hotel were very clean and spacious. We loved our stay here and would definitely return.

A lovely hotel in a beautiful quiet part of Koh Samui - the walk to the beach each day through the beautiful gardens was breathtaking - flowers and birds in abundance. Staff were always polite and friendly and the whole place was immaculate. We ate once at the hotel on our arrival which although more expensive than restaurants outside was still cheap compared to the UK - plenty of choice at breakfast with fruit in abundance and a beautiful view of the garden - excellent ice coffee at the beach bar and took advantage of happy hour from 4:30 - 2 drinks for the price of one.
Our bathroom was rather tired as were our room towels - in hindsight should have asked for a room on the 1st floor as we got bitten by mosquitos on a daily basis despite protection. Used the hotel shuttle bus to go to the Friday night market - excellent but not enough time and also to visit Chawaen - so glad we weren't staying there!! Also did a snorkelling trip to Koh Tao.
Mr Coppi has excellent fruit for a lunch snack on the beach.
Would definitely recommend this hotel and the area - hope to go back one day and see more of the island.

Room Tip: 1st floor to avoid mossies.
