Reviewed 15 January 2014

Stayed here as a couple... Had a lovely large room close to the main lobby of the hotel. Swimming pool was great with beach access just a few steps away. We did the thai cooking course with the hotel chef which was a great experience. Ate many lunches and a couple dinners at the restaurant by the pool which was also lovely. Would recommend to anyone travelling to Chaweng - only 10 minutes away from all of the action.

Our family of 4 adults and 2 young children spent four wonderful days at this clean, quiet and friendly Hotel. The cabins and rooms are spacious and clean. The cleaning and gardening staff were very conscientious. The restaurant, overlooking the great beach, encourages you to choose the strength of the Thai spices to suit your taste and the food is excellent. We are already planning a repeat visit.

Room Tip: There is one Beach Front Villa with private pool. It is twice the price of the superior rooms but we...

We recently stayed at Banana fan sea and loved it! We were tavelling as 2 adults and 2 children aged 18 months and almost 3.
We were surprised how small the 2 bedroom pool view rooms were, however we soon adjusted and loved our stay. We had stayed at a different place in much larger accomodations so perhaps our view was a tad warped but the 2 bedroom pool view comprises of one small room with queen bed and small bathroom and the other room is the same with an attached lounge area but the lounge is not separate (just separated). It also has a small bathroom. Our rooms were situated the closest to the pool and restaurant which we felt was ideal. It was not too noisy (except for the extraordinarily load fireworks that people (not the resort) let off at night.
The food was delicious and very well priced. We ate every breakfast, and many lunches and dinners at the restaurant and thought it was amongst the best we had had in Thailand. The room service menu is limited but has a good selection.
But the thing that makes this resort stand out and makes us want to return for our next holiday is the staff! Very very friendly and warm and very nice to our children.
I certainly understand why it has such a high ranking on trip advisor.

Room Tip: We had rooms 206 and 207 which are attached by a secure sliding door to make one 2 bedroom apartment

I stayed at Banana Fan Sea with a friend for 2 nights. From the moment we set foot in the resort, we were extremely well looked after. We were immediately welcomed with an upgrade to a garden deluxe room only a few steps away from the beach / pool area. The rooms were not particularly modern or unique, but very nice. However, the pool / beach area is fantastic. The beach section assigned to the hotel is on the quieter end of Chaweng beach and simply beautiful. If you want to enjoy the Chaweng nightlife you only need to walk a mere 10 minutes along the beach to the other end. At night, this is a beautiful walk. The hotel is clean, staff are helpful & friendly. I would definitely go back in a heartbeat.

This resort is great. It's right on the beach so you have the option of lazing about the pool or on the beach. It is down the southern, more quiet end of Chaweng which I enjoyed. Having spent NYE at the 'party end' this was a perfect contrast. The staff are lovely, the rooms are beautiful and the food at the restaurant is great. The included breakfast is really delish and there is plenty to choose from.
This place is great for couples, families, singles and friends.
Overall I would recommend this place to anyone and I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Depends how many people you have and what you're after- but the little huts closer to the beach...

Banana Fan Sea Resort My home from home . Another 15 days in this resort I wish it was more .The staff are all so caring and make this resort the only choice when we come to Kho Samui . I have been here 8 times and now feel part of the family , a good resort makes you feel at home and anticipate your needs . From breakfast to turning down the bed in the evening everything is perfect . We will return again soon to see all our friends at the Banana fan Sea resort .

I like this hotel, it's my second stay here from total 4 visits. Nice location, nice rooms, friendly staff. You will feel yourself very comfortable in this hotel. If you are looking for the nice hotel in the first line of Chaweng it's a right choice. Some hints: very good sea food restaurant Sydney is located on the left side from the hotel, good massage center Friend ( orange chairs, orange uniform) - 200 -300 m on the right side
