Surrounded by a very noisy street, with a french owner only thinking of making you spend your money in his "restaurant".
Lucky for him the beach is a gift of god to thailand.
In resume, you can find much better for an even lower price in samui.

mmmm....
what to think about this review ?
i will just respond by facts.
1) we are not surrounded by a noisy street , that is completely irrelevant ( have a look at the map )
the main road is more than hundred meters from the resort and the only noises you might get come from birds.
2) i cant remember you being pushed in any ways to spend your money in our restaurant.
guest are free to do what they want.
and as you may have noticed lots of people enjoy our restaurant lunch and dinner.
3)as a fact we are located right on the beach and that does not have much to do with god.

Great times at Cactus - run by lovely people headed by Jeff who made us feel welcome from the moment we walked in. We stayed for 4 nights over Christmas - the rooms were immaculately clean and were made up every day on request. Comfortable beds - best night sleep I've had in Thailand. Good pizza, cold beers, showed the footy and had free pool - what more could you want?! Played some really good music as well - complete opposite to the thrash you hear in Chaweng. Highly recommend this place if you want to stay somewhere outside of the main party area with a cool vibe at an affordable price. Chaweng is less than a 10 minute taxi ride away so you get the best of both worlds.

Location is great, convenient for getting on off the ferry from Koh Tao or Samui, and also for the airport. The room is lovely, clean and comfortable. The room are surrounded by palm trees so you feel like you're in the jungle! Also, Bophut Beach is very quiet so you can sit out and have a cocktail and feel like you have the place to yourself!

And was met with a warm welcome one evening (we where staying next door at Free House).
Lovely little beach side venue.
We didn't see rooms but I met a couple staying there and they where happy enough to extend their stay whilst there.
Looked clean & tidy to me.

everything was fine, less the swarm of flies and mozzys in our room when we first arrived, until the last night when halfway through my shower, the water decided to stop. So for our last night we had no flushing toilet, running shower or sink tap and it still wasn't running when we left the next morning! According to the owner the water tanks were being refilled but we had to go and find that out.. a simple knock on our door to pre warn us would have been something better than nothing, but he wasn't bothered and offered no alternative.. on a plus side bophut is the nicest beach around!

For the price, you can't really go wrong with this place. The bungalows are decent enough, though I would advise people not to book into the fan-only rooms - they get incredibly hot and uncomfortable in the night. The showers are cold, but why you'd want a hot shower in southern Thailand (and most of Indochina) is beyond me anyway. The restaurant is pretty good and the location on the beach is excellent. We went up the coast on a few day trips whilst we were there and Bo Phut was easily the nicest resort. All in all, pretty good.
