“Terrible place”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

Came to eat at the restaurant , looked ok and therefore went up to the terrace where the restaurant is. All tables were taken so they told us to wait in the relax area of the terrace. We ordered drinks and food ( possible to eat at the relax area) but hopefully a table should be available before the food arrived. Several tables became available and we was waiting for the staff to make the table ready. New people came and sat down where wanted so we thought they had another table in mind but no they didn't . After 30 minutes and still no drinks I asked for it and 3 minutes later it came. The beer was warm and we asked for new cold beer. They then came with ice cubes and glass . We asked for new , got new but still warm and therefore asked for a bucket of ice to keep beer cold but they had no bucket. Food arrived; my son asked for a burger without salat , just burger no salat, he got everything except the meat. It took about 30 minutes before all had the food served , the last person got it when everyone was finished eating. The plates was not washed properly , dirty on the outside , difficult to see the inside in a soup plate when soup in it .
Never again , stay away. I hope I'm not ill tomorrow or later tonight.

Situated near the end of the main drag, it's nice and quiet when you want to sleep. Only a 3 minute walk to the market, restaurants and bars (ie the awesome reggae bar) Best area of the island to stay to get to and from the beach, island hopping and nightlife. Only stayed for one night, couldn't have stayed here for more than three. Samui is perhaps the 'Magaluf of Thailand Gulf'?

This place is easy to find, secure and clean. Good plain food, the staff are fantastic too. This place is ideal for 21-40 somethings on an adventurous and mid budget backpacking trip.

Oh - plenty of mosquitoes, be warned. You will need a citrus based shower gel and plenty of local repellant - 100%deet (army standard) does not work!

Be prepared for plenty of thunderstorms and dark evenings from 6.30pm in June.

Room Tip: Specify any needs, bare in mind there are plenty of steps, but lift access to the upper floors. Som...

I'd like to start by saying we didn't stay in the accommodation but rather took advantage of their 89bt happy hour drinks. However it was enough to get some lovely photos courtesy of the staff and some good value cocktails, all in a modern and civilised environment, which clearly must be great once it got 'buzzing' after 10pm or so.

The stay was comfortable and breakfast was included in the stay.
Hotel is very close to the beach and the main market! Very peaceful place and away from any disturbance of any sort. They arranged our travel around the place also.

Great value for money!

We dined at the Loft with our 2 young children. The meals came out fast and staff were friendly but taste of meals left a lot to be desired.
Do not eat there with small kids unless you want to be chasing them away from stairs and platforms.

We booked this hotel last minute & there wasn't much choice as December is a busy period. The location is ok although I would prefer to be nearer the beach, pubs & restaurants but if you don't mind a 5 min walk you will be fine. The room is quite dark and basic, the bathroom has a hot water power shower which is good. We stayed for 3 night which cost £107.00 which I think us expensive for what you get.

Found this place randomly - walk-in customers. Decided to stay as the hotel is located really close to the beach (5mins walk). The room is very basic, clean, with not much in it: bed, AC, shower, toilet, towels, some hangers and and old TV. Ok to stay 1-2 nights.
