Outstanding5.0 / 5
Nice location, very affordable, and pool is great
Best value for money you can find in Samui. The room was very spacious and was cleaned properly by staff. Tuktuks to the main street are just 50 baht per person, so with 5 mins drive away - this hotel provides amazing proximity to the scene in an affordable price.

Great location, basic hotel
The hotel was towards the end of the strip on chaweng beach. Location was great for the price with a half hour leisurely walk down the strip to get to the shops and restaurants. We arrived and were given a room of the first floor but had paid for a pool view room. The lady quickly changed us to a room on the fourth floor over looking the pool with no problems. There was no lift so this was a bit of a trek. The room was basic but clean and for the price we could not complain. There was a sewage smell coming from the bathroom at times which wasn't so reassuring. The shower was a bit temperamental to get to the temperature you want. You also have to go down to reception to ask for a hairdryer which was a bit annoying. One umbrella in the room which was good for the rain season but could have done with 2! The bed was two singles put together and the split could be felt. Rock hard beds too but there was a sign saying to ask for a soft mattress topper if needed. Breakfast was below average, however one of the guys that worked there would prepare an egg your way fresh. I probably would not book this hotel again as we booked it last minute due to a change in our travel plans but it did the job and was a key location for us. The price was a major factor for us as we had left another hotel on the west of Thailand early due to the bad weather.

Excellent value for money
This is a fantastic hotel, it has all you need at a great price. The pool is great and only a 5 minute walk to the beach. The staff were very helpful. The main section of Koh Samui is a short taxi ride away however there are some cute bars near to the hotel.

We stayed here for four nights at the beginning of our holidays in Thailand .. This is a fab hotel it has everything that you could wish for .. It's clean ,the staff are great and will go out of their way to make your stay one to remember , I admit I was a little aprehensive when my partner first suggested this hotel only because of the price being low but I'm so glad we stopped .. Really this hotel should be charging double this rate its that good .. Hotels clean Staff are so friendly and helpful Pools just right We never ate here so I can't rate the restraunt only because we liked the food markets so much which are a ten minute walk away in the hustle and bustle .
