If you have to stay in this area of Lamai, Poolsawat Villa is the best choice. I am just finishing up my second stay and I would recommend it to anyone as an alternative to the decrepit rooms next door at Spa Samui. It is much newer and while it's beginning to show a bit of wear, it is a vastly better choice.
Pros: Next to Spa Samui (detox programs, delicious healthy restaurant), amazing lap pool, granite floors, huge rooms with plenty of natural light, mostly clean, cheap food/massage very nearby
Cons: Staff speak limited English, furniture/linens starting to show some wear, thin walls (I had a screaming baby next door), far from town, beach not good for swimming
If you stay in the Deluxe rooms and not the villas, be aware that there is significant noise from the street. Additionally, since my first visit, a Eurotrash restaurant/bar has opened across the street - on weekends and random days during the week it blares club music from 8pm onwards. Last night it was still going at 12:30am. If you're not a night owl, bring earplugs.
