Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This lovely restaurant is located in a very peaceful area of the island. We decided to give it a try for a little change from the various local eateries . As an Italian, I certainly was not disappointed. Probably one of the best aubergine parmigiana I ever tried ( including Italy), delicious pasta & pizza and lovely home-made bread. Service friendly & very personable. It Felt like a little Italian community which I did not expect. If you are in the area, is definetely worth a visit.

After reading nice reviews from other guests, I can't wait choosing this nice Villa as holiday accommodation. Pro : This Villa house belongs to Mr. Roberto Giacomelli, an Italian man who has been living in 🇹🇭for more than 20 yrs. ThisThai house is among Coconut Orchard, beautiful with nice garden and swimming pool. Beach is 5 min driving,or 15 min walk. Room is lovely, clean & boutique. Bathroom is spacious.Surrounding, there is only one Family mart,others there are nothing except coconut farm.At Villa,they provide Italian menu. Con: Unfortunately, Smart TV in room cannot be watched as it relys on internet connection. We could not watch any channels. We ended up with our own mobile device. All in all, This Villa is suitable who prefers quiet place, far away from bustling area.

Roberto is a great host. He and his wife have created a charming place in the more "peaceful" part of the island, an area which we really enjoyed. Everything is pretty much "as described". Our room was relatively small but absolutely fine (comfortable, clean and well equipped) as we were exploring beautiful Koh Samui during the day. The en-suite bathroom was perfect with its separate shower area and enjoyable water pressure. We very much enjoyed the terrace outside our room in the mornings as well as the evenings. WiFi in the room was excellent. Villa Giacomelli also has its own small swimming pool and a very nice restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Overall a great 2 night stay. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !

A special hideaway where we were greeted by very friendly owners. The Villa had a lovely restaurant and swimming pool. The room was clean and spacious with air-conditioning and tea making facilities. Set in a coconut plantation, this is a charming place is well worth a visit. If you get a chance visit nearby i-talay beach resort ( just past the Intercontinental hotel) where everybody congregates to watch the absolutely fabulous sunset!! It really doesn’t get any better.

Spent two weeks here in July while volunteering as a vet student in the local dog shelter. The shelter is a 15 mins walk away . The place is ran by a charming young Italian couple and a small few lovely local staff. The chef, Joe, gets a special mention cos he was just great. This place is amazing value for money. By far the cheapest we paid in Thailand and got a lovely double room with an ensuite. There is a great restaurant on site that does Thai food and unreal pizza. We were there for 2 weeks and tried other places in walking distance that were nice too (Mum a Roy's for eg.) when we needed a change. The owners provide everything, taxi cheaper than we could organise ourselves . Scooters or bikes if you want to rent them etc. There is an amazing beach about 7 min walk away. We spent many peaceful evenings on the terrace having beer and chats. For from the busy filth of Chaweng.

We stayed there because we thought it is not crowded but it's sort of an empty area.. no thai food except 1 place that closes very early. Their food was expensive for us and in very small portions.. we didn't find the peace we wanted. I would not recommend. And not so clean.

We loved the patio. We stayed in deluxe room on the second floor and enjoyed the view and warm tropical winds in the evening. The location of the villa was nice and quiet and near the beach. There were many great eating places nearby (The Island view restaurant, Pada Thai, Mum-A-Roy) The mattress on the bed was a bit hard for my taste at the beginning, but I got used to it:)

We stayed in this lovely hotel. The customer service was fantastic and the price very much worth it. Near a lovely beach. Note: there are two dogs and a cat. It is a hotel away from anything. Although there is a fantastic restaurant next door. Yaew restaurant. Super cheap and really amazing food.

I don't even know where to start, it was honestly the most horrific encounter of customer service me and my partner have ever experienced. We started off getting there and the owners were lovely and helpful to start off with but after getting to our room it went downhill from there. The room itself had mould in, it was filled with bugs and bed sheets smelt bad. For us personally it was to far out to do much, you definitely needed a bike. So we booked to stay in a different hotel in the more touristy part of koh samui. When we notified the owner we wouldn't be staying for the 3 nights we were told we would have to pay for 2 nights even though we stayed for 1 which we were confused about but agreed to it and she told us the price that night. Anyway when we went to check out in the morning there was some confusion about how much we had to pay as the member of staff said a much higher amount to what the owner said we had to pay, so we asked if we could speak to one of them to clear it all up and get it sorted and the member of staff said "he is sleeping (bare in mind this was at 11:00am) if I wake him up he will be angry for the rest of the day". Weird. So we paid what we thought was agreed the night before. Then this shambles of a place starts emailing my girlfriend abusive messages demanding more money and saying we shouldn't be staying in Thailand because apparently she was scared of a butterfly?? The emails contained name calling, verbal abuse and threats. We was honestly horrified and to be honest so shocked how a owner of a hostel can email a customer like that. It has genuinely upset us how we have spoken to and this could have all been avoided if the manager would've just woken up to clear any confusion we had over paying.
