Stayed at Chaweng Cove Resotel. This hotel is located at the southern end of Chaweng Beach - it is about a 15 minute walk to the central area where all the bars and restaurants are. However, within 5-10 minutes of walking there are other restaurants, shops and spas along the way to the central strip.
We paid 400 baht to get the airport transfer - we thought this was pricy so on the way back to the airport took a taxi, which ended up charging us 400 baht as most taxis refuse to use the meter.
The swimming pool was under renovation when we arrived for checkin and we were upgraded from the pool villa to the beachside villa which was right next to the beach. We were also given access to their sister resort Samui Beach Resotel and Spa to use their pool. The sister resort is much much nicer and we ended up spending all our time there.
The beachside villa was renovated and furnishings modern. The bathroom was outdated but clean. The room included a safe, mini fridge and flat screen tv.
The breakfast buffet was so-so. Nothing special, but decent. The hotel does not have a whole lot of amenities - it is not a resort but more a hotel.
If you are looking for a decent place to stay this hotel is okay. However, I wouldn't recommend it as there are many other nicer, more conveniently located places to stay on Chaweng Beach.
