I stayed here with my fiance for a few days at the start of May, we tried other places first but they were full. The many touts at the ferry pier from Samui recommended this place as nice.....
We arrived and all seemed ok, nice pool, restaurant on the beach, etc but the staff seemed too full on and slightly aggressive especially when we were politely turning down their endless offers of tours, excursions, etc. My fiance particularly felt uncomfortable by the short but seedy caretaker called Tony whom always seemed to be around when she was near the pool or walking back to the room by herself, forever coming to ask if she needed any help !!!!!!
It all turned pearshaped when leaving, we had been careful with our budget and so made a record of the things that we had bought only to find on check out that they had added many many things, food, internet, drinks, most of them fictitious. They knew that we had a ferry to catch and so when we asked to see the signed invoices they deliberately took ages to find them (20 - 30 mins), and then could't find them all !!!! By now we were about to miss our ferry and so were about to walk away when the caretaker Tony appeared with a pool cue in both hands and was standing near the exit ahead of us, gesturing for a fight !!!! The other staff all took aggressive positions too, they had obviously seen this before !!!
We paid for the sake of being hurt with violence and vowed never ever to return to this place. All the happy touts will recommend this place since they get their commission regardless, easy money !! And so many new visitors come to stay each time that they don't care about bad press since it will not deter future business.
Our recommendation, please do not suppport these people any more and please stay elsewhere. Threatened with attack with a pool cue is not my idea of a chilled holiday, especially when they had added to the bill fictitious items !!!
