“Never come again”
Reviewed 14 January 2012

This place seems nice when you arrive, but latter the only thing you want is to get out is soon as possible.
My husband is working in IT and when we were booking this place they assured us that they have Hi Speed ADSL. When we arrived there was shared with all condo wi-fi, wchis was unstable and it took me 10 min to OPEN my e-mail. Of course, it was a disaster for my husband. No one in the reception could speak English and we couldn't explain the problem.
Next day we found Steve(manager) and ask for internet he sold us a pin and password for hot spot that was better but we had problems with it all the time. On the second day our toilet stop working and they couldn't fixed it for 3 days.There was no water in the kitchen I washed dishes in the bathroom. I heard that other people had the same problems with toilet, oven, water...
The last, but not least if you want your security deposit back you need tell about it a day or two before check out, because "all money in the bank in Bangkok and it will take a half a day to withdraw them"(Steve). It's ridiculous!!!
Oh, almost forgot...our neighbors next door was Chinese, they had 2 cats with their bathrooms on the street and they cleaned them like once a month, all their garbage was in the street also and the smell was awful. For two days another neighbor drill from 11 till 5 for 3 days!
Also you can't sleep till 5 am because of music from dorm(next building) or parties near the lake (we had Minitry of Sound all night)

Basically it was Ok. Pluses:
comfortable apartments,
not far from the Chaweng and local attractions, shops,
have swimming pool and gym.

Not so good:
We just decided that we prefer bungalows in Thailand or sms more private - you feel axacltly as at home with neighbors everywhere;
water in swimming pool warm and not refreshing at all, but I dont sure that its just there, because we didn't use any other pool.
Anyway, better to live on the beach, and in June can do it for the same price.

I've lived in Koh Samui for about 15 month's and lived in Whispering Palms for about 3 of those month's and I have to say this place was by far the best one I stayed in. High-end appartment style rooms, with fully equiped kitchens and bathrooms. I have to say it's a litle bit out of the way so best get yourself a motorbike to get around, you should be able to rent one for about 200-300 thb a day. Or you can use the hotel operated tuk tuk to bring you where you need to be. This place has everything you need, two great swimming pools, a fitness, sauna, etc...
If you want great value for money I sugest to stay in this place.
