We've spent out honeymoon at this hotel in July 2008. We booked the place through a travel agency in Bangkok. From the brochure they showed us the hotel looked much more fancier than it actually is. So when we arrived in Koh Samui and saw the hotel I was a little frustrated cos it looked old.
My frustration grew bigger when we were taken to our room. We were given one of the downstairs room which was quite dark and cos of the plants in front of the window we had no sun or no view. The only nice thing was the decoration on the bed made with rose petals and towels. Soon after we got the room we went back in the lobby to ask if we can swap the room cos we were not happy with it! I thought we were gonna struggle with it but the staff was quite helpful so they arranged another room for us in 15 minutes. We moved to an upstairs room which looked much lighter and had a better view. The decoration on the bed was moved to our upstairs room as well!
So the hotel looked old, it needed to be renovated but it was clean and the staff was very smiley and helpful. There was enough variety with the breakfast and dinners were lovely. We also enjoyed the view from hotel's restaurant which is placed right on the Chaweng beach. The pool was nice as well and the hotel is located quite central. It took only 5 minutes to walk into stores, restaurants, market place etc...
For us the biggest downside was the bathrooms. The bathtubs were almost yellow inside and the water didn't look very clean, Other than that we were happy with our stay at Blue Lagoon. I would recommend it to someone who doesn't have very high expectations of a hotel but if I go to Samui again I would probably try a different hotel!
