We stayed here for 6 days and couldn't have picked better.
the rooms are great and the beach is only 3 mins away by scooter. The pool was awesome and they even had a good selection of dvd's you can use whenever at no charge. I also recommend a scooter. you can rent them through Ban Tai for 180baht/day. makes this big island easy to get around as it is a 10-15min scoot away from things (which we liked).
Richard the manager was very helpful, spoke GREAT english. There are a few restaurants within walking distance,
Overall great place to stay.
Also, as others said no matter where you stay on Koh Samui, make sure to check out Fi Restaurant! If you like Greek food, it's delicious with all you can eat on fridays. It's a little up the street beside Tesco Lotus.
