This was our first stop on Koh Samui as part of an island hopping trip. We arranged a transfer from the airport prior to our arrival via email, the correspondences were very quick, polite and helpful. Our driver was waiting for us at the airport, ready with the air conditioning on, which was much appreciated due to some confusion in the arrivals hall which is outside!
When we arrived at the hotel we were quickly checked in and shown to our room. The room (a twin) was lovely and clean with a nice bathroom. Despite being in a busy area there was very little noise at night which was reassuring as we were a little worried by this when we arrived.
The pool area was really nice, with comfy loungers and 'bed' areas. However be careful on the bed areas as they are surrounded with plants and we discovered a lot of bites on us after an afternoon in the shade here! Some reviewers mention the pool area being covered in shade all day - we did not find this to be the case, obviously the sun moves throughout the day creating shady spots but this didn't appear to be a problem. If you don't want to be kept in the shade, choose a lounger nearest the courtyard area. Sadly we did not see the swim up pool bar opened once during our stay, it appeared to be being used as a storage area! Clean, fluffy towels were provided for guests to use on poolside.
The breakfast included a selection of Thai and continental options, with fresh juice, tea and coffee. You were also able to have an omelette, scrambled or fried eggs, cooked to order. All of the staff in the restaurant area at breakfast were incredibly friendly and helpful with local information etc.
There was free wifi available, however we didn't find the signal to be very strong or receptive in our room on the 4th floor. It was very good in the restaurant/breakfast room and around the pool.
I would definitely return to the Mercure if I was in this area of Chaweng again.
