Me and my boyfriend stayed about 12 days at the Banana Fan Sea Resort late August to September 2011.
We had stayed at Banana Fan Sea Resort once before this year, during the flood in March-April, and we had decided that we wanted to come back to see how beautiful Koh Samui also can be. We had a very nice family trip in March, but the flood did, that we were unable to see as much as we wanted to see in Koh Samui. The reason why we choosed to stay at the Banana Fan again were following :
the staff was very friendly, smiling and helpful
the surroundings was pretty, clean, safe and quiet
the rooms was nice even though smaller renovations can be needed in the future. Even though it can seem as if the bungalows are very near eachother it doesnt feel crowded
There were no bugs, exept from 1-2 hours in the evening time, where some moscitos just had to come to the terrasse outside the room. Indoor there were none unless you didnt shut the door. So in fact not a problem at all..
Just remember to use the moscito reppellent in the evening hours about 18-19 o'clock.
The pool was nice and was checked daily
The restaurant at the hotel had a nice breakfast menu with all you could dream of having for breakfast. We also went to get lunch and sometimes dinner at the restaurant. The prices were fine. And the staff were very friendly and helpful and they just smiled all day long ! They also had a fantastic view over the sea all day long, perhaps that was why they kept smiling?
We also thought that the hotel was located on the best part of the Chaweng beach : the water is clean, the beach is clean (caused by the staff who takes care of it), the sea is pretty predictable in matter of the depth (small children must be under supervison during tides and when there are waves)
The hotel is also located near the street with restaurants, small shops and so on. Nothing was out of reach.
Outside the hotel it was very easy to find a taxi or the normally used cars, who can take more than 8 persons at the same time, if you want to get to the other end of Chaweng, where you find more activities in the evening.
If we go to Koh Samui again someday, we will definately go back to the Banana Fan Sea Resort !
Greetings to all the staff at the hotel.
