“A lovely hotel in good location!!”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

Stayed here for 2nites in koh samui..on arrival staff were lovely, providing us with welcome drinks and cool cloths. facilitated our early check-in and showed us to our beautiful room with everything you need! The hotel is on the beach so you can come and go as you please! Pool also lovely! Prior to this we stayed in 5star outside chaweng in a quiet area..however moved here for last 2nites to be in the hussle and bustle of chaweng!! If you want to be in middle of chaweng this is the perfect hotel!

Great hotel! staff is very professional and kind (most of them).our room was spacious and comfortable and breakfast was very tasty althou it was served on open area on the busy side of the street. the location is very good, on the beach . the beach was very noisy (music and people...). The bottom line is that we where really enjoyed.

Dara samui is one of the better choices at chaweng beach. Our room was big and clean, (most of) the staff friendly. Unfortunately, breakfast is served on the busy streetside. Another drawback is the loud music at the beach, which can be very annoying. Restaurant choice at chaweng is great - but if you like to be undisturbed, choose another beach.

Well We came to the hotel and first impression was gr8 , We got cool towel and drinks and got a free upgrade for our room hotel facility are nice but not as fancy as you would think for the hotel price,
We were tired an wanted to extend our stay and than all trouble began.. I don't know if this is the hotel policy to every person that was free upgrade but first they told us that there are No more rooms(I double check in every webpage including there own rooms were avaliable!!!!) and they only got room that I will need a manager that will open my room everytime (Really?) than they told us to come in the morning to check if any room got free (We spent all night looking for hotel because of that) , so we came in the morning and they told us that inorder to stay in our room we need to pay extra(Thank you nice hotel for the upgrade :/ ) or move room , I stayed in too many hotels to know that If you upgrade a person for free you don't ask him to move out of his room to extend his stay ... So I left to a nicer even cheaper hotel ...
More notes: Pool is half closed , breakfast sucks

Room Tip: Don't get an upgrade if you want to extend your stay they will charge you.

Upon arriving at Dara Samui, we were not met by anyone to carry our bags up all the steps to get to reception which normally wouldn't bother me too much If i wasn't paying 3000 baht a night. We get to check in and our reservation is not on the system, so we had to connect to there wifi and send the confirmation email through, I asked If we didn't have the email on us could we still check in and was ignored 3 times before I got an answer. And then we were told we should go and take a seat. We will decide that! so we waited for 20mins hot and sticky as there was no fan. To then be told we could not check in until 2pm which was an hour and a half away! no effort was being made to get us in a room early which we have not experienced anywhere else on Samui, infact other hotels/resorts normally go out of there way to get you in and comfortable as soon as possible. And take great care in looking after their guests! Not here. We were told to go shopping until then. Yeah thanks. Once we got the room all was better and we could finally relax in a lovely room. great decor few minor issues with bath needing maintenance but apart from that we had a great sleep and enjoyed the room. and wifi worked ok too. Customer service really needs to be looked at, then I would give this place 5/5.

Dear kkltd,

Thank you for taking your time to review your comment of our resort on Tripadvisor,

We thank you for choosing our Resort for your stay and we apologize for all your inconvenient during check in, after serious investigate to our staff members we found that our bell boy offer assistant to carry your bag but you were refuse as you only have the bag not the suitcase,

For check in you just book the room via internet agent a minute ago before arrive to hotel and we not recieved the confirmation yet, when we check the booking system we were not found your booking that the reason taking time to asking you to send the booking refferrence confirmed.

The accommodation voucher is important for the hotel to billing and hotel will do not allow any guest to check in with out this its voucher.

After our reception try to explain you why we should have the confirmation details , it take a while for you accept to send voucher then the reception check you in and after check the room is still all occupy and you should wait for the room until 14.00hrs with the offer of instead of waiting at the hotel lobby our staff reccommend you to go out at area of shopping centre while waiting for the room,

We would reassure you that our staff have been well trained on customer service but if any case make you feel uncomfortable please accept my apologize on behalf of my team members

Hope can get an other opportunity to serve you again here at Darasamui in the near future.

We got the rooms on agoda, so we got a really good price.
With the money we paid the hotel was a deal.

In the heart of chaweng, so going out to eat at different places was easy.
The beach side was ok, shallow beach but clean.

Pool was not big but ok for relaxing.

If your looking for a place in heart of chaweng, not so big on going deep swimming and just want to relax in a convenient place then this is the place for you.
