“A paradise”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Just back from a week at Rocky´s with my family. We stayed in the pool deluxe villa, which was perfect for a family with teenage daughters in need of some privacy. Everything was just perfect! The personal was friendly, the rooms and the hotel area was nice and clean. I loved the garden and just perfects with two pool areas (it was never crowded). And the massage at the beach, ah :) Ask for Nan if you like to get a real thai massage with strong hands. I will definitely come back if I get the chance!

Rocky's is a very pretty resort with friendly and warm hospitality. The rooms are lovely and we were fortunate to be upgraded to one that overlooked the ocean which was small but nice. Despite these great qualities, there are some downsides that are important to highlight:

-Location: Rockies' is just south of Lamai Beach. Although the beach is nice, there is nothing charming about the downtown. It has seedy nighclubs, massage parlors and irish pubs. It's not walkable from the hotel because the street has no sidewalks. To get anywhere on the island is expensive by cab. So, we had the feeling of being trapped at the hotel. If we ever decide to go back to Ko Samui, we will definitely stay at a different part of the island.

-Beach: Due to the plankton, the beach is really only for wading and not for swimming. There is no fitness center on site. Given that swimming is not possible and the beach is too short for walking, this was a big negative for us. They do offer a fitness center at another hotel though.

-Food: The food is good but nothing to write home about. Most of the breakfast buffet seems to come straight out of a box and the portions of the breakfast 'entree's' are rather small. Our breakfast was not included and we had to pay extra for it. The dinners underwhelmed us; especially given the inflated pricetag.

-There were a number of families with small kids here. The resort seems better suited for families with small children than couples.

Room Tip: The ones closer to the beach are best in my opinion. There aren't that many of these.

Just home after a wonderful 9 night stay at rockys! we came here to get married and loved every minute of our stay. The location was just perfect, with a lovely private beach for guests. With regards to accomodation, the rooms are very comfortable and are situated very close to pools, bistro, dining room and bars. The staff are second to none and make you feel very welcome and special, they are a credit to themselves and Rockys. Ann, our wedding planner done a wonderful job and the attention to detail for our special day was more than we could have asked for. A special mention for Martin for giving away my beautiful bride and Lucas for his friendly nature, ability to put a smile on guests faces and willingness to go out of his way to assist in any way. Rockys truly is a family and we are so glad we spent the most wonderful time there. We will definetley be back at Rockys in the future and would reccommend it to everyone. Thanks again to ALL the Rockys team!!!!

Room Tip: We stayed in the deluxe garden room, which felt quite secluded but close to all amenities in hotel.

This was a return visit to Rocky's and I am pleased to say this resort is as good as ever - the staff are excellent - friendly and efficient. Special mentions to Tien - a wealth of information on Thailand and its culture and Lucas who goes out of his way to chat, arrange and sort things out. There is a real culture here that the guest comes first - there are few places we have stayed where the manager (Martin) is happy to sit at the bat and chat.

The resort its self is small, well set up and kept immaculate. There is no road noise and plenty of space to chill by one of the two pools on or the beach.

The food is very good and there are a couple of excellent local restaurants as well - frequented by the locals - offering amazing meals looking out over the beach.

Overall we cannot fault Rocky's and we will no doubt be back again soon!

Room Tip: The pool view rooms can be noisier during the day - but then you should be out and about!

We came to marry two friends, the ceremony was incredible !! A luxurious place, nice rooms, nice small buildings, 2 extremely beautiful swimming pools with nice gardens, great thai bistrot, wonderful breakfast looking at the sea. Little downsides : the rooms are humid, pool view rooms are a little noisy on the ground floor, the pools are closed during the night, the little rocks on the beach, the unfriendly and expansive public taxis to go the shopping area in the island. We stayed in the hotel during our 3-day trip, in this paradise, away from the too urban Koh Samui island.

Room Tip: garden view better than pool view at ground floor

we arive to Rocky's after staying in 3 other 4-5 star hotels, and planened to stay for 3 days. we end up staying 9 and wish we could stay some more. the location is unbelivable,day and night.
we came with a 2 year old child. the kids club is very nice with activities, the garden pool is great for kids and to beach pool is right near the sea. the tai resterant is reletive O.K. price wise, with the best tai food we ate. the oriental resterant is right on the beach is the most beutiful place, great food but expencive.
the servise is very personal, this is not a big resort and all the staff are extrimly nice and polite and helpful.
everything is always clean and service is always with a smile !!!
most evening they have some enterteiment.
the resort is little remote from other places and the food and drinks are reletivly high, however, the cost of rooms are not very expencive reletive to other 4-5 start hotels, so even with additional cost for food/drinks/taxi this is the best value per monay location we have being to. we staying in a garden view room wihic was beutiful.
I hope we will be able to come back some day.

one thing they need to improve - kids pool must have shade

Room Tip: don't go on a safari trip in tailand. they abuse the animals. you can go on the privet boat in...

I really don't know where to begin with this resort other than to say I have never stayed at a finer place. There is not a single thing bad or even a tiny bit disappointing for me to write about. The ocean side suite was beyond cool. The amenities, the cleanliness of everything there, the exceptionally friendly staff, I mean every level and every detail of this resort was far beyond what I expected or have seen in our past travels. I know I sound like a shell for Rocky's but it's just that I was truly blown away by them. In my opinion don't walk, run to Rocky's if your looking for a relaxing time and want to be pampered beyond belief.

Room Tip: If you can afford it the ocean side suites won't disappoint
