We found Samui avillon is one of the best hotel we have ever stayed in.
The staff are very friendly and caring with their customers and always ensure that we had the best time there. We had little 4 years old with us and all staffs have been so welocming him and he was very happy with the pool.
The beach was crital clear, we can see lots of big and little fishes on when we were swimming. We can borrow snorkel from the look out bar at no cost and see most beautiful coral.
I had my massage every day by the beach on the left handside from the hotel beach front and it's very cheap. The pool are quite small, but very specious and small pool for our little one and he's very happy.
Our room has private pool and walking shower and very clean and tidy (only some small ants in room) but we were expecting that as it's on the grown floor and it's tropical country. Breakfast were lovely and we can see beautiful view when we have breakfast.
We hire a four wheel drive to drive around the area and the were very cheap (only Bath 600) per day.
If you would like to have a totally chill out, relax with luxury and best service, I would recommend you come to Samui Pavillion. We can wait to come back there again.

Fantastic terrace with a beautiful swimming pool, a very good restaurant and wonderful bungalows on the beach.
The place to be in Lamai.

Its my 3th time (2005, 2009, 2010) at the Pavilion and I allways enjoyed the time at the hotel and the very friendly staff.

Following are my reasons why I choose the Pavilion:

Location:
The hotel is located at the best part of Lamai Beach, if you prefer the tourist area, its very close (2 min waking distance) to shops, restaurants and bars, but its very quiet in the night. If you prefer the Thai area its also 2 mins walking (opposite direction) to the Thai area (foodmarket, cheap Thaishops .... )

Rooms:
Great ... same like on the website of the Pavilion :)

Beach:
its one of the cleanest part of the beach in Lamai, great for walking or enyoing the lazy life ... for swimming at the sea, please use shoes (corals).

Poolarea:
Great poolarea with nice furniture and allways helpfuly stuff. You will find allways a sunbed :)

Restaurant:
Very great and romantic view to the ocean ... also very good food :)

Guests/Customers:
Nice and friendly customers from the whole world, no (less) childrens ...

Staff:
Accept privacy and are very friendly and helpfully ...

Price:
Its expensive but over all its the money worth ... or ask for a better price :)

Next time I will choose the Pavilion again ...

We booked a hydro pool villa at the Koh Samui Pavilion for our honeymoon. We have stayed at the pavilion 6 times now in the past 3 years in various types of rooms. The hotel has the right location, right on the beach with enough space to relax and not feel claustraphobic like the other hotels in Chaweng that are right ontop of each other. You are greeted and checked in and given a small drink and a much needed ice cold face towel. In that heat you need it :)

The hotel is quiet, yet is situated at the very start of the shopping street in Lamai, so is very easy to go out of an evening and wander down the street, eat out, watch kick boxing, have a few beers or some shopping. The air cons are a little noisy in some of the rooms, so if you struggle getting to sleep in a new place like me, then bring some wax ear plugs. The rooms service is great, hydro pool villas are very spacious, junior spa suites are best value in our opinion. Towels (shaped like dogs or elephants by the maid - nice touch with the franjipanji flowers on the bed) and bedding very clean (changed daily) , beds are very large and comfortable. Ipod docking stations are an added plus and DVD players also good when you want to curl up and watch a movie.

The hotel bar on the beach does close a little early though, so if you arrive about 10pm like we do and fancy a drink, just take a little walk down the street. The hotel bar on the beach is lovely. Definitely recommend a Koh Samui dream cocktail at sunset - cannot get enough of these!!! Its definitely a good spot to take your camera if you are keen on taking photos of lightning. I have managed to take a few wonderful shots from the beach of storms in the distance out at sea.

Its easy to hire a car from the hotel and good value. Taxi's can be a rip off however the small bus vans are good value if you dont mind sharing. From Lamai its about 15 mins to Chaweng where there is actually a boots chemist and such a long long road full of shops stores etc. Chaweng for us is also home to the best italian restaurant we have ever found worlwide, run by italian chef... Restaurant is called Prego.

So in summary, if you want a hotel where you can eat breakfast a few feet from the sea crashing lightly on the sand, to be within walking distance to Lamai (where items tend to be cheaper than Chaweng in my opinion), have a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed and actually have a good relaxing break then here is the place....

That was our the worst stay on Samui. I'll get to the point:

On our arrival, we found out that A/C was not working. Called reception. They promised to fix it in 45 minutes or change the room. The room looked fine at first, but jacuzzi had a big crack in it, and we found some other minor problems. We went for a walk and an hour later A/C was still not working. A new manager on reception told us they would fix it in 30 minutes. At this point I insisted they move us to another room. They found a room with a small pool and upgraded us free of charge.

This room was better, though it was very dark. In addition, for some reason the lamps in the room kept burning out like every day. A/C worked, but was very weak. Luckily it could handle the small room. The water in the shower wasn't flowing out properly, to the point we were afraid to flood the room. There was no view from the room, because of the fence surrounding small yard.

Breakfast was pretty bad, very limited. We were staying for only 5 nights and the breakfast immediately got repeating. We also ordered some food on the beach bar a couple of times (cooked in the hotel restaurant) and it was pretty bad too. So the only thing I kept ordering was coffee.

The beach was nice, clean, with free sun-beds arounds. That was the place we spent most of the time, as the hotel pool was small and awkward, and we didn't want to spend any time in the room except for sleep. They even had free WiFi on the beach and beach bar. Not sure it was supposed to be that way, as they offer broadband internet in the rooms for a charge.

The worst thing about the hotel is its architecture. There is ugly concrete everywhere, awkward steps (making the hotel very child unfriendly!), and too little green. Everywhere you look, your stare is blocked by fences, walls, more fences, and concrete blocks.

The last thing that made our stay "fabulous" was our small private pool. During the last two nights of stay it would turn on its jacuzzi pump for no reason. It's a nighttime and that working pump creates a lot of noise, irritating everyone in the rooms around. First night it worked for 5 minutes and shut down. The next night it turned itself on again. It didn't react to controls, so I couldn't shut it down. Calling reception, sending staff to fix it... This time it took them about 30 minutes to turn it off. It was 2am, our flight back in the morning.

Almost every day they were fixing something in the hotel. Sometimes it involved drilling (lot of noise again), sometimes it was less intruding.

Overall, your vacation don't deserve to be ruined by staying in this hotel. Every time I hoped it was the last problem that occured, but they kept coming. And even if there were no problems, this place of concrete is definitely not something you would come to Thailand for.
