We had deluxe beachfront room which was so close to the beach (via stairs). You could see the ocean from bed! Breakfast was very average, coffee was terrible. Can grab local taxi to chaweng for 100baht pp. Can barter down. Great little beach to snorkel

Awful hotel. I actually felt unsafe. Noisy, outside felt unfinished and not worth it. It gets visitors because of the stunning location. The room was basic. Food OK but nothing special. Would not recommend.

Stayed here with my partner on our way to koh tao. A tad pricey considering the location being a bit far away from all of the action. The rooms were okay but a bit old. The bathrooms were slightly gross. Hard bed etc. I wasnt that impressed because our room was right beside the highway and loud scooters were the... More

We have just come home from a 5 night stay at this little gem of a resort. It is right on Crystal Bay, the best beach in Koh Samui. We stayed in a seaview room and looked directly out over the bay. The resort is an older style one and is probably only about 3 stars but the 5 star... More

Thank you for your feedback it is very useful for us to make improvements. We have 9 grades of room in the resort and I recommend Seaview Deluxe and above for those wanting a more luxurious and modern room. We also have many grades of cheaper room so all budgets can enjoy our lovely beach. More

We never stayed as this place was completely booked, however we did manage to spend a couple hours swimming in the irresistible turquoise water nestled in a small cove against forest and rock formations. There is a bar here, a pool, restaurant and massage area also.

I would rate the resort itself as average to good. Value for money it was good. Our room was a bit tired and could use some TLC. Food served was very good value and excellent. The staff was friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The beach was very clean and beautiful. Just a pity that some visitors left their... More

We were disappointed to find that the hotel is used as a walkway by public to the beach. This sadly made the feeling of security non existent as it was very busy with streams of people passing through. This just felt wrong for the paying guests. We were in room A1 with what should have been great views of the... More
