Our booking was made through a package booking also. The stairs are trecherous but the service is amazing. Very friendly and helpful with good english. We are backpacking so we are used to various levels of comfort and this was perfect for us. 3 min walk from the beach but no inconveneince, we have access to the best beach on Koh Samui (Choengmon Beach). They also sort out ferry for full moon party and any other trips you might consider. If you need to get somewhere you can hire a scooter from there or one of there staff will happily drive you - for half the price of the local rip-off taxis. The room was nicely presented and perfect for washing sandy feet. The airconditioning is noisy, but at least it's not a fan. Very nice staff even when you come in at 1am after night swimming :P Free internet is an added bonus. I also reccommend the omelette. Very nice stay.
