“Bad location, bad service attitude”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

Reserve the hotel based on the agency. The view is nice in the beginning. But after few days, u will feel all the views are the same. The location is not close to any other night markets or hot spots. There is no shuttle too.. Above all this bad conditions, the worst is their service attitude. I think they lost their smile and enthusiasm long time ago. U may ask urself why they don't like most of the other people u met in Thailand. In the end of the days, I will serious suggest u not to go this hotels. If ur agency suggest u to go with big discount, u will not want to save a little money to lost ur good mood

Room smelled of mold and had definite water damage in the shower ceiling, most likely due to poor ventilation. The towels have even picked up the smell of mold. Smell of sewage floats around outside. Lots of steep stairs, which doesnt bother me but could be problematic for others. Very negative impression, especially having to pay for 3nights upfront.

Room Tip: Always look at rooms and grounds before paying

By far our best holiday destination ever. Very quit with private villas dotted all over the hill amongst thick jungle ensuring privacy and intimacy. Spectacular views, excellent service, magnificent pools, beach side dinning. We loved evey minute and will return as soon as we can

1.The drainage hole of the shower room is blocking.
So water cannot drain.
2.The room is so small.
3.The lock of the balcony’s door is broken.
4.The thermos is broken too.
I should not want to go again.

upon arrival the view was stunning--we were then taken too our rooms/bungalows down below with an old double cab shocks gone-along the route old palm trees and rubbish in black bags and stuff lying all over the place underneath other rooms--rooms are old,bedding dates back to 1920 or earlier,bathrooms are dirty and smelly--view from the top below on the rooffs of the other bungalows is terrible rubbish lying on every roof down below--my wife and the other couple walked up to the pool area and bar to try and get something cold to drink while i tried to manage to get us another hotel via our travel operator back home--some bottles of drink at the pool bar is standing on a wall in the sun with labels already discolored from the sun,the fridge single door pepsi is empty with some old tree branches and leaves lying next to the sink and tap where u wash glasses--no staff member around,no towels,no umbrellas set up no pool bar available--so off we go the the lobby reception area where i went to complain the the rooms are old,bedding is terrible and i got told by the lady manager that booked us is"yes we know it is old and terrible"after i complained that we are not happy with the accomodation--we then tried to get something to drink from the main lobby bar but could not as there was nothing in the main lobby bar fridge except half used tomato sauce bottles and other stuff--dirtry mopps and brooms standing in plain sight next to the bar against the bar chairs--we walked across to the next place next door where we could buy some cold drinks as there was nothing to buy at the hotel lobby bar--so we sat out side waiting for directions from our travel agent back home next to more dirty mopps and brooms and broken wooden dust bins and this all forms part of reception--this was nearly the end of our 20thwedding ann.trip as my wife refused to stay and eat anything here--we think health inspectors should close the place down permanently--we then found baan haad gham on chaweng beach where we spent the next 4 nights in luxury clean and affordable accomodation

We've been a frequent visitors to Koh Samui and recently we've always picked this little gem of a resort along the east coast of the island. If you are looking for a hotel in the middle of action, then this is not for you. But if you are looking for a quiet hotel conveniently located in between different parts of the island, then like us you'd love this location.

Almost all of the rooms and the bathrooms have stunning sea view. The rooms are basic but nice. The swimming pool and deck is a great place to unwind after a long day running around the island. Breakfast is a bit disappointing so we always just go out and try out one of the many local noddle shops along the roads.

The hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful. They clearly remember us by our 3rd stay and we can now demand to have the same room every time we go!

We've been to Samui Cliff View Resort & Spa for our firts 2 night in Samui with our 3 and 8 month boy and 1 and 7 month little boy. We've booked the beachfront villa which is a large villa on the beach with large bed and very nice bathroom with hot-tub. We've also got a baby cott as we asked when we booked. The hotels is loacated on a very steep cliff and the access to the resturant, the pool and the reception is very difficult, especially with kids but the staff was very kind and always came to pick us up. Overall, very nice hotel, very good staff.

Room Tip: Rooms next to the pool and restaurant
