My partner and I stayed here for 13 nights in May 2014. We had a pool villa, which was very spacious and well presented, with our own private pool. The pool was small but enough for relaxing and cooling off with a few drinks. In the room there was a king bed (hard mattress), a day bed and lounge chair, good size TV, kitchenette etc. No bath in the bathroom unfortunately but a very large shower. The room was clean, and was cleaned once per day, however the odd hours of the cleaning made it difficult to plan our day. Housekeeping would come to the room at any time from about 10am-2.30pm. Also, the pool in our villa was not cleaned at all while we were there, so after a few days it was starting to look dirty!
The hotel restaurant is quite good, buffet breakfast every morning with a fair bit of variety. Dinner at the hotel was lovely as there are tables directly on the beach, fresh seafood and live entertainment, friendly staff. Very romantic :) only problem with the restaurant is they didn't do any room service! In fact there was no phone in the room at all, so if you need to speak to reception you'll have to walk up there. The staff at reception were good, and helped us book some tours, and hire a bike which they have at the hotel for a very reasonable price. Speaking of bikes though, unless you're a very experienced rider I wouldn't do it- the roads on samui are terrible and traffic is worse- small wonder there are 30 deaths on the road a month there.
The hotel setting is very pleasant, a lot of greenery and had a large pool which we didn't use but seemed popular. The hotel backs directly onto the beach and they had massages available there which are great! Very cheap and the ladies there are lovely. We walked 10 minutes down the beach to get to the best swimming area, as directly outside the hotel the beach has a breakwater which makes it very still and not as nice as further down. The hotel also has lounge chairs available beside the pool and on the beach during the day. Before coming here we had read that it was noisy at night with arkbar so close, but our room was in the middle of the resort so we didn't hear anything apart from the occasional fireworks. The entrance of the hotel is on chaweng beach road, which is the Main Street of chaweng, with HEAPS of restaurants and shops, as well as taxis and songthaews to take you where you need to go, which is convenient.
If you're looking for a nice and affordable place to stay in chaweng, montien house is perfect. However for our next holiday in Samui we are going to stay up at Bophut/ Mae Nam for a more peaceful stay away from busy Chaweng.
