5 nights was too long in the Samui Island Beach Resort, our stay was disappointing to put it mildly. This is not a Resort – it has a non existant beach, poor food, dated - over-priced rooms, construction work going on 3 sides of the hotel. You will find better value for money elsewhere.
It is at the top of the Chaweng strip, a good 15-20 mins walk to all the bars and restaurants, not convenient. Shorter if you walk by the beach - that is if the tide is out.
For what I paid for the room, I expected more. The superior bungalow is small, basic and dated; we were upgraded to a hotel room which is a good size, average bathroom and facilities.
The breakfast was poor - average quality and little choice, if you weren’t there before 9am, the trays were empty.
The pool ... limited beds some without padding. The Hotel was right on the ‘beach’, but it has to be low tide for you to access it – its water front, not a beach where u can lie on and sun bathe.
There was construction work going on 3 sides of the hotel (stayed here Feb 09), lying by the pool is not relaxing when all you can hear from 8am to 6pm is nail guns, grinders, hammering and general construction work, to the other side of the hotel there was excavation work going on. You could not get away from the noise, hence we checked out early.
The staff were friendly, however there is not a lot they can do to shut down 3 construction sites.
I will not be returning to the hotel.
