“Value for money..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

After reading some food reviews and shortlisting some good hotels in Samui, we decided to book hotel via Agoda. It was a never a mistake as the staffs are very friendly, the view is awesome and the breakfast was good.
A very nice place to relax and have a peace of mind. You may have to rent a bike or take the local taxis to Chaweng street.
I will definitely want to come here again.

Location is really good, quiet and motor bike gets you in places. Staff is really friendly and rooms are good. Staff will get you motor bikes and my advice is to take them from hotel. The bikes are good and they will not [--] you upp. There is also a small 7-eleven in about 100 meters from the hotel. The beer is much cheaper in there.


Lovely garden and simply the best coffee in Samui!

We stayed for the three nights of our holiday - nothing was too much trouble. Great breakfast with bottomless coffee & toast. The pad thai was also a favourite. good quiet location with everything you need a short walk away. Bed was comfortable - there were a few mosquitoes though as there was a small gap in between the front door. Didn't bother us though. Would definitely come back!

Room Tip: Bungalows are nice and quiet

We stayed 4 nights and the hotel was in a great location away from the frenetic chaos of Chaweng. You can walk into Chaweng or catch a local taxi in which costs about 50 baht a person. The hotel has great food, tasty and a good serve. The only disappointment was the standard bungalow we stayed in, the door had a gap and the mosquitoes were very bad, bring mozzie coils if you want a peaceful nights sleep.
Please be very careful when hiring motorbikes, we hired one through the hotel that came from a company up the road , the first day we returned at 2pm and didn't use the bike till the next morning. We had a flat tyre and pushed the bike back to the company, they made us pay 250 Baht for the damage even though we argued that the bike had sat all night at the hotel. They said we damaged the valve?
We then hired a car from another company and they were very picky when we returned it as they reckon there was a scratch on the back that wasn't previously there. Check the cars and bikes thoroughly before hiring them.
This is our third time to Samui having last been there 4 years ago. It was abit disappointing as has grown so much and is now very much like Bali, over commercialised .
There are still some peaceful lovely beaches located on the West coast.

I'm actually writing this review on the last day of my stay as I am so sad to leave this place. Iv stayed in my fair share
of hotels, b+bs and hostels but this without a shadow of a doubt over rides them all. Location is so perfect. Close enough to walk into the town for a mad night out and far enough to have a quiet and peaceful stay. Hotel is right on the beach and pool area etc is gorgeous. Staff were the nicest people in the world. So friendly and helpful. After a mad night out we were goin elephant trekking and the hotel staff came running to the bus with a packed lunch for us as we slept in and missed breakfast. Restaurant food was delicious and the rooms were ideal. Overall this place is hard to whack and I'm so sad to be leaving. Roll on next year. I will definitely be back!!!!

We found this hotel while doing some hotel research online. After reading the reviews, we decided to book papillon. When we got there, we were welcomed with drinks, the owner of the place was very nice and helpful. We got to have breakfast every morning facing the sea. Wifi was only accessible in the common area i.e. the restaurant/bar area and the lobby. There are charges to use the wifi in the rooms.
The only disadvantage was that while we were having our breakfast, flies were everywhere and it was quite irritating to have to swat them away all the time while eating
