It was a clean & beautiful resort in Chaweng & just right infront of the town center. It's worth of value & will stay again for my next visit. The staff is friendly especially the receptionist Miss Kai & she was really a helpful lady. It was the best resort to stay & we had a enjoyable holiday.

Its an average property but value for money right on Chaweng, one side is pool, resturant all beach facing. The hotel has his own private beach. The other side is happening too, Green Mango is 5 Mins walk and and all market and resturant around. Great Location. The place is calm and quiet. They have cottage rooms which are good.

I have stayed here twice. Although there are cheaper options in Chewang, The Island a nice plavce to chillout for a few days. By far my favourite thing about this place is the bar/pool area. Food and drink are very reasonable, even by Thai standards. Service is good. You really feel like you're on holiday when a nice and friendly...

Do not book! The hotel is nothing what is appears like in the promotional material. The rooms are terrible and dirty. The shower is covered in mildew and mould. You enter the shower dirty and come out worse. There is a real pungent smell of the water also. They also advertise free wifi on the brochure- lies! When checking out...

What was pictured was not what we got - brown muddy water filled the toilet, and a non-working shower. Dirty room on top of that. Do yourself a favor and go next door to the dara Samui as we did - much better stay.

Well.... After reading the review I was really worried about the condition of the room. I specially requested an upgrade to deluxe bungalow and stated I need a new renovated one. I keep sending email to them but their response is very slow, I had to sent three time before they would reply me. The service not good at all!...

Really dissapointed with the bungalow. It was right nexy to the hotel block with two airconditioners facing us and no privacy. The bungalows are old and basic. For the price look somewhere else. The location is great though.

Probably I would give this hotel 3.5 stars just like the rating. The location could hardly be better in samui its in the middle of chaweng beach where basically everything is going around. If you need something outside and more quite you might reconsider. Allthough beeing the most crowded beach its still a very beautiful beach at chaweg. I had...
