This hotel is very old dirty infested by mosquitos and in the middle of no where. The beach is useless because you cannot swimm thevtide is too low. The swimming pools are disgusting the water is not clear. They mix bath towels and towels to go the beach so they all are disgusting. The one which were white are now light beige with stains everywhere... We were excepted a buffet for the breakfast. And for 250 bath per pax we had tea or coffee, orange juice in can ... 2 taosts with butter and eggs which tasted fish. We had a standart room we ask to get a superior room it was even worth. They never accept to refund the money. We had booked through agoda web site.... The hotel is in the zoo so it stinks tiger and monkey everywhere. A nightmare. Stupid girls at the reception desk. Dont go to this place. i forgot to take pics i was so upset. The aircon is linking or do not work .... But you have a fridge to feed ten people in your room ( very nice decoration when you have a huge old fridge in your room it makes extra noice that's it....

We enjoyed our stay here, although we had just come from a very bad one in Pattong so anything would have been good :) .
We travelled all day by bus and boat to arrive at approx 8pm. We were very tired and extremely disappointed that we had to leave the hotel to get some food and a drink as nothing was open. The focus is definately on the day activities of the tiger park and aquarium.
Swimming with the seal was fantastic!
Rooms and pool were nice. Staff were reasonably friendly.

Room Tip: A ground floor room near the pool is lovely and only steps away from the pool. Also has a loveley patio out the front

rooms were dirty and overpriced, staff were extremely rude and unhelpful, the property is not well maintained and the food was terrible. the zoo was also very disappointing, the animals were treated poorly and their living conditions were nothing short of disgusting.
as a frequent traveler i have stayed in differrent levels of accommodation across asia and around the world.
what im saying is ive stayed in some dodgy places in my time but samui orchid takes the cake.
do yourself a favour and go elsewhere

Room Tip: its very simple dont stay here

Stayed at this hotel for 2 months Dec and Jan 2011-2012 - the area of this hotel is just gorgeous and the property is kept beautifully and spotless - 3 large pools on this property and very clean.
Breakfast is very simple and always the same - only thing you can change is how the eggs are done and what type of fruit you want. If you have to pay for breakfast (meaning not included in price) 250 Baht is not worth it at all.

As far as the rooms are concerned, they are clean and very nice - but small - and the cleaning girls always have your room done when you leave - you don't have to wait for many hours like some hotels - so that's very positive.

Hydro goes out all the time - many many times during a day but they have generator on location so you only have to wait for a couple of minutes before it clicks in. They advertise satalite TV - wrong - they have 1 HBO channel, 1 sports channel that is hardly ever working and CNN News - 2 other English news stations and the rest Thai - the 3 satalite channels hardly work all the time and we had to go to staff several times asking where these channels are - and miraclously, in a few minutes they appear - it seems someone at the front desk is messing around with the channels - sometimes watching a soccer game and it disappears - goes to another channel - so this is not a positive for the hotel for anyone who wishes to watch a little TV in the evening.

The staff - they are very friendly but they have hardly any knowledge of English and they are very unorganized - if you have a problem, they do take care of it very quickly but sometimes you have to get angry to get your point across - so this is a little negative as well. And the cleaning staff starting at around 8:30 am every day - talk at top of lungs with no regard to people still sleeping so if you want to sleep in, forget it unless maybe you are on the top floor.

If you go for a month or so, they give you a good deal but the prices are way over priced for a week or two - especially for Thailand. This place is no way worth the price they want on internet.

If you want to come here and want to stay in the building, only book the main floor as they are totally decorated as what internet says - but if you choose 2nd or 3rd floor - they are no where near as nice and for same price....so be careful which floor you book on.

In summary - the place is beautiful, the area stunning with a few negatives but we had a wonderful time here and we would come back but only if the prices don't soar any more than they have already,

Canadians

Room Tip: If you like being away from the busy town this is the place to go - quiet but if you have a bike, no problem
