    Staff are really friendly and helpful. Pool is really nice. You could basically have a holiday in this place without leaving the resort as there's bars, shops, spa and even a super market in the hotel. The rooms are excellent.

    The part of Lamai Beach where the resort is doesn't have the nicest beach, but both the nicer part of Lamai Beach and Chaweng beach are close by

  • Single
    9.6

    Very good location if you prefer to stay outside either Chaweng or Lamai, but still have good access to both. Rooms were quite spacious. Great value for money.

  • Couple

    Very clean, nice hotel. Room good, food good. Female manager very good English, which always helps. Depending on what you are looking for, this hotel quiet and relaxing. One of the better gymns I have used in my experiences of hotels in Thailand, two good outdoor pools. New Irish bar on site and a few new-looking restaurants on site, as well as a mini-mart. Couple of minutes walk to beach (Lamai) although not necessarily the best bit of beach I have seen in Thailand, but descent beaches nearby.

  • Single

    the price i paid through bookings.co., 950 baht was very good value. I wanted to extend my stay but was unable to do this at a rate I wanted through bookings.com. I did however agree a rate of 1500 baht direct with the hotel, to stay a further 18 nights. My prime reason for wishing to stay at this hotel is that it is very close to a spa i am attending for a fasting period.

    the room was good but could be better with a little thought. the lighting is a little dim, a another bedside table would be nice. also some hooks in the bathroom woud be handy.

    Me and my wife stayed at this hotel for one week and we liked it very much.Close to the beach and nice area with restaurants, coffe world, pub, shops and more. Short way to reat of Lamai City for more thaifood and market and so on. We will recommend this hotel to all who want a nice vacation.

    One thing we will complain about... woodenfloor in our rom very squeeky7noysy. That must be fixed in all room. Our room 334

    I liked the room the best. It was very cosy and didn´t felt like a hotel. Nice pool area. Friendly and helpful staff.

    They closed the pool at the beach after a few days to renovate it and clean it. To reach the beach you have to cross a very busy street. But there was a security man who helped you. The beach was small and dirty but the north part of the beach was much better.

  • Couple

    this is a great hotel for all kind of people and ages, we stayed here for 2 nights whilst travelling and then came back a few nights later as we cudnt find a better one for value in koh samui.... we hired a jeep for 1 day which was great fun and cheap to rent through the hotel. free internet at all times which is great!

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    We enjoyed this resort. The room we had was small but lovely decorated and good bed. We had a balcony but no chairs to sit on so requested them and they arrived immediately. It has two pools one at the resort and the other across the street by the beach which were great. Included in our stay was the buffett breakfast which we thought was very good. Staff were friendly and always wanting to please.

    The beach in front of the pool was not the best but you could walk down the beach or take a tuk tuk a bit farther down and the beach was much better.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    we stayed for 10 nites with our 9 month old son staff were excellent couldnt do enough for us

    the price of soft drinks on the resort

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Very good value for the price we paid. Great room (get a junior suite, its worth the money!), great service. Breakfast very good, did not use the restaurant at other times as there are so many option on the island. Everything is clean and in shape, nicely decorated rooms, good beds. Nice fitness room. Great staff, especially the resort manager, Melissa, was very helpful

    Can be a little bit noisy because of traffic coming in and out, but this is indeed a minor issue. Is not located directly at the beach and the beach section which is on the other side of the street (where the second pool is located) is not the best beach of the island. However, we had a car so this was not an issue. And if I am right, the Buddy also offers transportation to another beach as well.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    beautiful building - old colonial style. great staff - helpful and friendly, lovely room - well equipped, shuttle to chaweng was useful

    unfortunate smell of 'drains' in room and generally around complex. Might have been due to heavy rainfall for a few weeks - don't know

  • Single
    7.8

    Very nice room, large and affordable. Good service and nice facilitation within the resort. The beach pool was especially nice, with a small bar, and cushion beds for relaxation. Friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere.

    Bit far away from Lamai central, and with the beach proper not being of the best quality either. Be prepared from background noise getting into the apartments as the walls are too thin. Hard beds.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    Everything was perfect! We highly recommend this hotel. 2 pools, gym, huge breakfast which we used olso as a lunch, free wifi, good restaurants and a very good location.

    No food available during the night.
