The room was quite small especially with a toddler but it worked for what we needed. The breakfast had a great choice and the outdoor seating area for breakfast was perfect. There is no longer a swim up pool bar as advertised. Location is right on the beach which is perfect. The staff are very helpful and accommodating with the exception of the bar staff who were most rude especially when we queried how they could run out of wine on not one but two nights running hmm. We were dismissed quite rudely for asking and told this is just how it is. Besides this we enjoyed our stay in lovely Ko Samui and we would stay at this hotel again.

Not your average ibis it's a new building beautiful lobby, beautiful beach, beautiful swimming pool! We paid 4500 for 3 nights other hotels were charging 6000 per night and weren't half as good. Our room was clean and the service was amazing! They cheekily saw it was my gf's bday on her passport so when we popped out they put flowers and a towel Dove shape on our bed with a lovely b day message! Who needs a huge room with a sea view that you have to climb a bloody mountain to get too! There's no funny business in this area it's nicely situated off a main road on flat ground not a silly mountain! Book it and spend the rest of your money actually on your holiday! Not were you'll be sleeping! We were going to go to a hotel called Mantra but they were so rude and on a huge mountain far from the beach we drove off on our scooter!

We stayed 5 nights in April and checked into a lovely room, not as small as expected!
Hotel was very nice and clean, the grounds were lovely and the pool was fantastic! The beach was also lovely backing onto the pool.
The pool bar was slightly expensive and slow service due to only 1 member of staff.
Breakfast wasn't too great at £5 each!! The A La Carte breakfast was basically leftovers and even NO milk for your cereal, tea or coffee. The fruit juice was also removed so we paid £3.50 for some pieces of melon, a bowl of dry cereal! Not good!
The Asian buffet was also poor....it was not really a buffet as you were served your food at the table and the choice was not very extensive. If I would of known, I would have gone across to Jack's Irish bar where the food was good and beer was cheap!
A little far from everywhere but not too far from Fisherman's village in a taxi. We walked it and it was too far in the heat!
Overall, Hotel & facilities were good but food was poor. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: I think all rooms will be nice at this hotel

This IBIS offers excellent value for the money. If you are looking for a clean, well managed, with a nice pool landscape and super accessible beach hotel, this is definitely the right address. The staff is very friendly and helpful and there is absolutely nothing to complain about, if you consider the very affordable price. I can only recommend the place and we would definitely stay there again.

Ibis hotel was the best value hotel we have been in Thailand.

It is clean and comfortable.
The location right on the beach is perfect.

The pools are small though but we did not use them.

They offer shuttle bus to fisherman village or chaweng for 50 baht per person.

The wifi is working great.
