My girlfriend and I needed to find a last minute place to stay after booking a same day flight to Thailand. Other websites had given more positive reviews of Aree Bungalow so we took the minivan from the ferry to Aree Lamai Beach. We found the location to be good (not great). We had a room facing the beach which...

Sadly enough I wasn't reading the comments here before setting my foot in this place.When I've already got there it was too late....me and my partner were carrying heavy bags,and considering the heat outside we have decided to ignore the bad signs and check in for 1 night.What a miserable decision that was ! I totally agree to everything that...

I found this place on sawadee.com and reserved 8 nights. it looked good and the rates seemed ok. That was my first mistake. I should have just booked a single night to see how the place was. The website has a very extensive contract that you have to agree to. I skimmed most of it. I did notice that I...

I have stayed here twice now and each time have left after one day due to the bad attitude of the manager. Once could have been forgiven maybe but not twice to the same guests. Aree was generaly friendly but never over friendly. The resort could have potential if run correctly. You don't get that welcome feeling here. As soon...

AVOID THIS PLACE. The manager has BAD ENERGY Big time along with his wife you get a sense of Greed only hungry for your money. Myself and my partner had a "run in" with the manager of Aree. He avoided asking simple questions eg. noise (after we told him we had shifted from another hotel nearby because of noise), he...

4 friends and myself have just got back to England after staying in Aree. After reading the previous review I am very surprised by your experience. We were treated kindly by the man who you say was rude and insulting and he even gave us a little discount. Aree bingalows is the best value for money on ko samui with...

Aree Bungalow --- If you want Thai hospitality, this is not the place. The man running the place was the worst experience of our vacation. When we checked in the type of room we requested was not available. Our party was split up, so we went down the beach to find a place that could accommodate us all together. When...
