“Unbelievable views, privacy and seclusion”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

By far our best holiday destination ever. Very quit with private villas dotted all over the hill amongst thick jungle ensuring privacy and intimacy. Spectacular views, excellent service, magnificent pools, beach side dinning. We loved evey minute and will return as soon as we can

1.The drainage hole of the shower room is blocking.
So water cannot drain.
2.The room is so small.
3.The lock of the balcony’s door is broken.
4.The thermos is broken too.
I should not want to go again.

upon arrival the view was stunning--we were then taken too our rooms/bungalows down below with an old double cab shocks gone-along the route old palm trees and rubbish in black bags and stuff lying all over the place underneath other rooms--rooms are old,bedding dates back to 1920 or earlier,bathrooms are dirty and smelly--view from the top below on the rooffs of the other bungalows is terrible rubbish lying on every roof down below--my wife and the other couple walked up to the pool area and bar to try and get something cold to drink while i tried to manage to get us another hotel via our travel operator back home--some bottles of drink at the pool bar is standing on a wall in the sun with labels already discolored from the sun,the fridge single door pepsi is empty with some old tree branches and leaves lying next to the sink and tap where u wash glasses--no staff member around,no towels,no umbrellas set up no pool bar available--so off we go the the lobby reception area where i went to complain the the rooms are old,bedding is terrible and i got told by the lady manager that booked us is"yes we know it is old and terrible"after i complained that we are not happy with the accomodation--we then tried to get something to drink from the main lobby bar but could not as there was nothing in the main lobby bar fridge except half used tomato sauce bottles and other stuff--dirtry mopps and brooms standing in plain sight next to the bar against the bar chairs--we walked across to the next place next door where we could buy some cold drinks as there was nothing to buy at the hotel lobby bar--so we sat out side waiting for directions from our travel agent back home next to more dirty mopps and brooms and broken wooden dust bins and this all forms part of reception--this was nearly the end of our 20thwedding ann.trip as my wife refused to stay and eat anything here--we think health inspectors should close the place down permanently--we then found baan haad gham on chaweng beach where we spent the next 4 nights in luxury clean and affordable accomodation

We've been a frequent visitors to Koh Samui and recently we've always picked this little gem of a resort along the east coast of the island. If you are looking for a hotel in the middle of action, then this is not for you. But if you are looking for a quiet hotel conveniently located in between different parts of the island, then like us you'd love this location.

Almost all of the rooms and the bathrooms have stunning sea view. The rooms are basic but nice. The swimming pool and deck is a great place to unwind after a long day running around the island. Breakfast is a bit disappointing so we always just go out and try out one of the many local noddle shops along the roads.

The hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful. They clearly remember us by our 3rd stay and we can now demand to have the same room every time we go!

We've been to Samui Cliff View Resort & Spa for our firts 2 night in Samui with our 3 and 8 month boy and 1 and 7 month little boy. We've booked the beachfront villa which is a large villa on the beach with large bed and very nice bathroom with hot-tub. We've also got a baby cott as we asked when we booked. The hotels is loacated on a very steep cliff and the access to the resturant, the pool and the reception is very difficult, especially with kids but the staff was very kind and always came to pick us up. Overall, very nice hotel, very good staff.

Reviewed 19 July 2013

We booked the waterfront villas for 2 nights. WHAT A MISTAKE. We only booked due to the view from the top and the pictures online. False pictures and false reviews on AGODA.COM. We sent a review to agoda but they didn't publish it, seems they only publish good reviews.

The first thing we noticed was that there was no wifi signal at the bottom of the hill, even though the waterfront villas said in-room wifi. FALSE, there is only wifi up the top from the main lobby. When we confronted reception we were told we were wrong and they do not advertise in-room wifi, we were wrong and we misread (yeah their english is crap). As i knew they would say that i showed them a screenshot i had taken with my phone showing "IN-ROOM WIFI" well that was the start. We managed to get the second night cancelled through agoda.

THE ROOM
HA! half eaten out by white ants, the tracks were everywhere, we were in villa 5, first on the left at the bottom. The bed had no pillow cases on the pillow, the bathroom (more like a shed built on the the villa side) smelt like piss, was full of mozzies as it was not closed up to the open air (like i said a shed), there was no spare linen, the closets were full or dirt and spider webs, there were cockroaches everywhere in the room, even on the hutch at the back of the bed, so we moved that back from the bed, there was a mozzie net but only on the sides not only the top (WTF!), the aircon made a clunking noise all night and took about 3 hrs to actually cool the room down. And sorry you can't keep the aircon on as you only have 1 key and you need to use the key to operate the aircon.

The bed was hard as a rock and since we only had 1 pillow each, it was not a good night at all. We call reception to get more pillows and clean pillow cases and were told "Sorry we don't have any spare as we are fully booked" I'M SORRY IS THIS A HOTEL? SERIOUSLY YOU CAN'T EVEN GET A PILLOW CASE BECAUSE THEY WERE SO TIGHT OR MAYBE JUST TOO LAZY TO BRING ONE DOWN.

The rooms are very very old and even had outdated big box TV's, and to no surprise, they had 4 channels that were all fuzzy. No fans

THE POOL BAR
HA! There is NO POOL BAR - there is an empty room next to the pool with junk in it and no staff anywhere near by. you have to walk all the way to the top to reception to ask for a drink by the pool. They consider a pool bar, being able to get a drink delivered to you at the pool.

BREAKFAST
HA! worst we ever had in Thailand. We left and went into town to each breakfast again, food was all cold for the limited range there was. The staff we again miserable.

As an Aussie couple who stayed in 6 hotels while we were in Thailand, this was the worse hotel for service, cleanliness, price, location & facilities. This is a 1 star hotel with a long way to walk from the bottom to the top.

Reviewed 24 June 2013 via mobile

We were excited to get an online deal for $70AU a night, after seeing the spectacular view from reception. After seeing the room, it didn't seem like such a great deal. Very worn out furniture, holes in the bed sheets and could barely see the ocean from our room. Breakfast average, stick with an omlette. The staff were friendly and quite efficient, took about 5 minutes to check out. The pool is great and the views awesome but if those are not extremely important to you, I would not recommend this hotel.
