A warm welcome

Review by Maggie HExeter, United Kingdom

A warm welcome is always guaranteed when you stay at this genteel resort . I have stayed here five times now and the resort is all about making your stay the best it could be . Although the accommodation is older it is nevertheless very clean and the rooms are quite spacious ...

The breakfast is very varied and cater for all nationalities and cultures .we ate in their restaurant quite frequently and enjoyed all our meals , we ate from their Thai menu and it was delicious and reasonably priced . The beach is amazing and sun beds and towels are provided . The staff across the board are helpful , patient and very pleasant . This is a great place to stay give it a go !

Lovely Stay

We stayed in a pool villa and had a lovely time. All of the staff were incredible, very friendly and helpful.

The room was very comfortable, everything was clean and beautiful...

The private pool in the villa was nice to lounge in, especially if you have a float. It’s not completely hidden from view and people walking by could see in so no skinny dipping here.

Prices at the restaurant and mini bar are expensive but that’s normal for resorts like this. There are restaurants and shops within walking distance so you aren’t stuck at the resort if you don’t want to be.

They also offer two computers in the lobby for guest use which was very convenient when we had some unexpected work to take care of.

On Saturdays they offer a buffet dinner with live music and traditional Thai dancing. It was a lovely evening.

We enjoyed our stay and would certainly return.

Minor details lost it a star

Review by TrackerhPeterlee, United Kingdom

First impressions when arriving at this hotel was it looks a little tired and needs a good refurbishment. Staff at reception where lovely and very helpful. Again arriving at my room, although very clean and spacious from the first outlook, minor details and faults let it down...

The bathroom had a lovely big bath, 2 sinks, a shower cubicle and toilet. Bath tap was slack, the toilet seat slack, shower had mouldy spots in the corner of tiles and wood was rotting in places off the damp. Sinks not bad but minor marks on mirror. The cleaners I have to add do a fantastic job keeping the rooms as immaculate as possible. The Wifi was a complete joke, some things worked well and others not at all. In the end I ended up every day at reception using the hotels private Wifi to get things done. The good points, the staff are excellent and will help you in every way they can, The Gardens and gardeners are excellent and very well maintained. They work tirelessly to keep them maintained. Again the pool is beautiful and has a lovely infinity pool with a small children’s area. Beaches are beautiful and outside the hotel area well maintained, but if you go for a walk in either direction be prepared for the horrible sites like rubbish etc. We where on Half board here and found the service and food excellent, with a big choice to choose from. This hotel also has an excellent tailor shop, Raul the Tailor made me 2 pairs of Linen trousers and the wife 2 beautiful silk tunics, all at very reasonable prices. The bedroom has a few good tv stations, had a slight problem with the English movie channel as it kept switching off half way through a film, and we had to keep reminding the hotel it needed switching back on, but these faults are minor. The room I was staying in on the ground floor also boasted a narrow 25m swimming pool, the wife loved it as every morning she would wake up and go out to swim a few lengths, this was also cleaned daily. I did have a wonderful stay here and have wrote quite a few minor points, what looks when reading pretty bad. But they are only minor points and the only reason I couldn’t write 5 stars. Give this hotel a minor makeover and it would be perfect. Would I stay here again, of course I would, it’s a beautiful area and immaculate garden, Pool And Beach, who wouldn’t.

Dissapointed and Dissatisfied!!!

Review by TasosAnthAthens, Greece

We had arranged an one monthe travel in Asia and we had decided to spend New Years Eve in Koh Samui and especially in a luxurious hotel with room with private pool in order to have amazing and unique moments. After searching many months in advance we found this good looking hotel, with traditional architecture, pool and right in front of the beach. We decided to book the Grand Pool Villa...

I mark this clearly as it is the top room of the hotel with private big pool as it is shown on their photos and ofcourse much more expensive and non refundable price. To sum up we booked the room on 13th of August, almost 4 months prior to our arrival with the cost of 525 euro for 3 days which I suppose is a big amount of money especially non refundable but this meant that we booked the room we wanted and reserve it as to be sure. After spending almost one day travelling and being extremely tired but very excited to arrive in such place and room we arrived at the hotel with the transfer that they book for us and cost 20 euro more. Everything looked great upon arrival, the hotel, the atmosphere, the staff...but here starts our nightmare. Upon info they told us that with our reservation we have dinner free on New Years Eve which was good but suspicious to us because nowhere was such an offer and nobody inform us in advance. My worries became true when we arrived at the room. Although the interior looked somehow the same as the photos was much smaller than the advertised, dirty, with old furniture, misplaced plugs and with bad smell. Top of when they show us our private pool. No privacy, not a single plant, dirty and looked like a pond or small bathtub. Not at all grand pool. We start to have feelings that we have been cheated and to be very sad and helpless. After some time I decided to inform the reception for all the situation.When I arrived there calmly I expressed all the situation and the manager appeared just to inform me the my room is not available and given to another guest and there was not other available room during all our stay. I felt even worse about this after booking it 4 months in advance and paying this large amount in advance. They also found excuses that their photos are misleading. They admitted. Returning back to my room and after a short conversation with my girlfriend about their answer she started to be even more sad and me personally not in so good mood and anxious. We were trying to find desperately solution. We contact with the online booking company about all and waited. As time was passing we realised that our first day was ruined from the hotels behaviour and all our plans have gone away to go to the pool or to the beach. A very bad start for this part of our trip which made me mad. After 4 hours already in this room we decided that we need to discuss it agin with the manager and inform them that online booking company was already informed. We went again to the reception again calm although we were so mad from everything. We said straight to the manager to find for us solution or else to compensate us at least half of our stay for this bad treatment and for cheating on us. All the time she was speachless couldn't say or find solution for us. After listening that the online booking company was also informed she got anxious and tried to find solution for us. Suddenly although being informed earlier that there is no solution, found 2 rooms but from the next day and asked us to give her a chance and see the other rooms the next day. The only mistake from us is that we accepted to give the chance as we were very tired from the trip, lost already a whole day to find something else or to move and we wanted to be in a hotel with this architecture and area. Next morning after the breakfast we informed to see the other two rooms which were more acceptable than the first but still not the one that we booked. Finally we decided to stay in one of this two which had at least a bigger pool but still in bad condition with broken woods, dirty, not working the recycling, no plants, no privacy. I decided to bother the reception again to clean the pool. After sometime someone came to clean it but not properly. I gave up. Couldn't do anything else and i felt so sad. During all our stay we felt that we were targeted because of our complaints since on the first night we offered the fruits and ice that were given everynight to all as comments also say. The next two night nothing, not even ice, toilet paper forgoten one day and also in the dinner our plates were remained empty on our tables and also our food came wrong two times. Maybe lets say it was too many people but still unacceptable. Overall our stay was ruined and very bad and since both of us we are working in hotel industry in very famous and touristic place this was a totally unacceptable treatment from the hotel which mu attitude to the guest who pay a lot of money. Apart from this hotel had some other bad issues, like the lack of pool and beach chairs where you should put your towels early in the morning in order to have somewhere to seat, main pool area although it was nice the bar looked boring, chairs very uncomfortable, beach area very dirty and not private at all. The only good things were that some of the staff were polite, the breakfast was very good with a lot of choices although fruits were not so good and that was not so good in a place famous for fruits, new years eve dinner was very good again with many good choiced and a large variety of food but still we needed to pay a large amount of money for drinks. Overall one of the worst stays that I had, i felt so cheated and that my money does not worth here, i dont recommend it to anyone. Very dissatisfied!!! After my departure i asked the online booking company to do something as the hotel to compensate me for this awful treatment but on their communication they inform me that the hotel said that they gave me the room I booked. Which meant that they kept lying sorry to say this. Finally the compensation I took was only 10% for making my stay on of the worse, for ruin my vacations and for cheating me. Thankfully there are photos. Check the Grand Pool Villa and check mine.
