I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Papillion. The bungalows were amazing, the bed was very comfortable, it was quiet. The restaurant and sun loungers are right on the beach. I thought the food was very good and the staff was great! The Thai lady who is the manager is very nice and helpful, she even helped prepare for an interview...

Very friendly service. Nice rooms that are well maintained. Standard room is similar quality to more premium one. The location is good near many nice things and directly on the beach. The breakfast is a La carte which is great as you get your eggs or whatever you choose made fresh unlike in other hotels where they have buffet. Also...

Not the most flashy place but they have incredible staff who make you feel like you are very welcome. Particularly a lady named Ped Ped – she's the best. The beach isn't swimmable, but it is pretty to look at and you can walk along it to amazing beach-front restaurants. The pool isn't massive, but the kids love it and...

Location is very good if you like peace and quiet environment. Great restaurant in hotel with incredible warm and friendly customer service. We spend 5 days in bungalow and it was clean, air conditioner and everything works properly.

This hotel has great staff that make you feel so welcome. The owner/manager is simply a great guy and makes you laugh if you are lucky enough to have a drink with him at the bar. I thoroughly recommend this resort to anyone wanting a good holiday in Thailand. It is also close to everything you need should you wish...

This is such a nice place to stay.. Bit away from the center so rather calm surroundings but near enough to the action. Superfriendly staff, nice breakfast, spacious, clean rooms. Also: a pool and the ocean is right at your feet. Highly recommended!

Nice cabin room with lots of space. Pool has a great view. Resort charges 4X taxi rate for their Airport Shuttle and refused to call a taxi. Restaurant was empty and food and drink prices were much more than anywhere else in Thailand.

We stayed here for two nights on arriving in Ko Samui. The room we were in was a small hut but was enough room for two, sort of. The pool is in a good location and was good to cool down with in the morning, mainly as our room had rubbish AC so we melted during the night. During the...

We spent 2 nights in this familiar hotel. Our 3 little children were adored by the staff and we really had a relaxing time here. Kids lived the pool, the jacuzzi and the breakfast. We were allowed to have a late check out so the boys could sleep after lunch. Cleaning was good, food excellent (hot chocolate for breakfast:))! We...

“I'd be tempted to go for a slightly larger room than you think you'll need from the photos. If in doubt, email the resort as I found them very good at communicating and answering questions.”
