If your in your early 20's maybe its the place - ill be honest didnt really like it ! The rooms are basic - no windows other than the doors which open to a pathway full of kids throwing up. The pool had 'white stuff' floating around. The music is 'ok' but pumps out all day long without any respite ....ill be honest i didnt like the clientele, most thought they were in Ibiza no idea what nationality they were but they but several people were just walking around thinking they were cool when they were nnot ....its not san tropez or a classy place in ibiza ...its ark bar on a not nice beach on koh samui ...the beach is horrible .... and the drinks are so expensive its a joke.
Expect to get harressed by horrible little kids ...several i had to swear at because i was getting so wound up by them ....its sad to see the girls are on the beach trying to play noughts and crosses ...whilst there mothers are playing connect four in the bars ....its a sad part of Thailand that you dont really want to see. The worst of it is the young idiots encouraging the kids to arm wrestles ...usually aussies who are trying to impress the young girls - not realizing that there encouraging the horrible destitution of these children more ...
If your young and want to party with other idiots go for it ...else dont bother get outta there and get to an island with cool people .... !
If you do go take some sensibility with the young children !
