Reviewed 25 November 2009

The services, accomodations, location,... were of top level, and prices can be negociated at less than half their nominal value during late summer

It was my first time in Samui and I did a lot of research for hotels, 3 star and up. As I was not familiar with the terrain at all, I was relying heavily on pictures and map locations, and secondarily on friends' experiences who have been.

The hotel is located between busy (and highly touristy!) Chaweng Beach and quieter Lamai Beach. As the nae suggests, the hotel is built into a cliff. The views are breath-taking, truly. And if you want to be off the beaten track, this is a wonderful place. It has a rocky shoreline, so you have to travel to Chaweng or Lamai for beaches. You can walk in either directions if you like to walk. Or you can taxi in either ways.

The room was clean, had everything required and the bathroom was a treat as it had a huge picture window looking out to the sea.

Each and every room has a MAGNIFICENT view as the hotel is so built. The infinity pool also looks out to the sea and is spctacular.

The service was also wonderful. I had some internet connectivity problems in my room, but the staff took care of it, no questions asked.

I didnt eat at the hotel so do not know what the food is like. The buffet breakfast, however, was nice, especially the banana pancakes!

I would recommed this hotel to those who would like to be in a quiet cove, yet accessible to the main beaches of Samui.

My partner and I chose the Samui Cliff View for it's beautiful views.That's all it is.A view.Nothing else about this resort is special.We were suppose to stay for 3 nights,but only stayed too.Transportation is a big problem.I won't recommend this resort to any older couples,people with disabilities or couples with younger children.It's not a convenient location at all.If you want to go to the lobby you have to call the resort to pick you up or you have to climb 300 steps which is not a good idea in the heat and humidity of Thailand.
The rooms are small and not well equipped.The bed had sharp edges and I hit my leg four times on the sharp edges.The rooms felt extremely old and outdated.
The bathroom was dirty and full of bugs!Their bathroom amenities are very limited. The only plus was the jacuzzi.
Rooms service was OK,but they didn't even come to collect our dirty dishes.
The pool was very nice,but the deckchairs were old.The pool bar was closed and the massage area was covered in plastic.
The breakfast was horrible.I found ants in the breakfast cereal.
On a positive note:the staff was very helpful and friendly.

All in all it was OK.Not the worst I've stayed in,but also not the best.If you don't like to be close to the beach or like to be very secluded,this is the place for you.
