Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

We stayed there for 4 nights and it was our best choice.
The staff was amazing and always willing to help and very friendly! They arranged a safari for us around the island and it was perfect!
It's a small resort but their pool, the beach located 10 seconds walking, the location near chaweng centre, the breakfast located just in the beachfront!! Everything was excellent in our stay. Don't expect the luxury of a 5 star hotel but for the price payed it's totally worthy it. I highly recommend this place.

My fiance and I stayed at Baan Talay for 3 nights. We were immediately upgraded once we arrived. Our room was very nice and provided free water everyday as well as beach towels and baskets to go to the beach with. We had an amazing breakfast overlooking the water each morning. The buffet had everything you could want, hot dishes (western & thai) as well as omelette bar, fresh fruit, juices, yogurts, granolas, and muffins. I wouldn't recommend the restaurant for lunch or dinner. We went and thought the food was overpriced and lacked flavor. There are plenty of restaurants down the street that you can venture to. There is a 7-11 right across the street for any beach snacks. The beach had nice chairs to lay on and the pool was really nice as well. The staff were courteous and I'm really pleased with our stay. This hotel is away from the party scene but and easy 20 minute walk will get you there. There are a million restaurants and clothing shops on the way. I really recommend Baan Talay.

If you want a beachfront hotel in chaweng baan talay is what you are looking for
For a solo traveller I would suggest a place closet to the centre of the nightlife
But for a couple who want to relax watching the ocean with the fruit drinks and stuff likethat it is perfect
My advice: ask for the beachftont rooms with the hammock!
Otherwise once there you will regret and envy who is staying there in those rooms

I stayed in this hotel with my husband for 4 days. Perfect ambiance, location and friendly staff!! However, rooms facing pool/beach are preferable over other rooms. It is quiet and is the perfect place to chill and relax.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms facing pool/beach!

We stayed here for 4 days in June and the location was amazing for us, close to restaurants and shops, right on the beach with the restaurant looking over it. The pool was lovely too, however our main problem was with the room, we booked a garden view bungalow, which their idea of a garden is a small balcony with a strip of plants in front of a wall, however we were not that bothered about a view. The main problem was the cleanliness of the room, we first noticed a lot of ants all over the desk that were coming in from a gap along the side and bottom of the sliding door, this worried us slightly from a security aspect -one lock was all that held the door in place, and the fact that bugs could get into our room. We later discovered half a dead cockroach in the bathroom which was obviously not cleaned that well and the bathroom had a strange smell the whole time we were there.

A few days later we discovered a cockroach on the curtains which you certainly do not expect to find inside your room. In our attemps to catch it, it went underneath the door a couple of times and came back in, clearly the fact that the door has gaps is an issue. When we eventually caught it i went to the reception desk to complain and she seemed more stunned at the fact I complaining about a bug than the fact that the bug was there, maybe these are common in Thailand, but as a paying guest these should not be in rooms. She wasnt the friendliest person in the world stated 'what do you want me to do?' (This could be language difficulties however) and only follwed this up by sending someone to remove it who basically was laughing at us, not a response that staff should have.

Also, the air-con was totally useless, hardly cooled the room at all which meant that I could not sleep under the duvet, and due to the gap in the door led to me receiving many mosquito bites despite using deet 50%. The window in the bathroom also did not close properly which led to bugs getting in and further security problems.

A nice location and facilities however they are charging to much for the garden bungalows when there are a few issues that need sorting.

First time in Samui - great experience and a really nice place to relax. Right on the best part of Chaweng beach. Clean rooms, friendly stuff, great facilities and very convenient location - quiet, but yet very close to the action. Breakfast is not too fancy, but everything necessary is there. Pool looks nice, but we haven't had a chance to experience with such a beautiful beach at your footstep. Had a minor hiccup with wi-fi, but it was just a minor issue in overall experience. Definitely recommend the place.

Room Tip: if you want more privacy, ask for a garden view room instead of a pool view one.

Best place we stayed at in Thailand. Staff were good and helpful and we got a lucky upgrade which was very much appreciated.
Pool was awesome and the breakfast was the best thing to wake up to. Free sun beds on the beach are great. Rooms are very well maintained. Couldn't ask for anything more than what we received!
