The staff were lovely, and the hotel was great. I have no complaints other than the fact we didn't stay long enough to get good at pool... wow - we were rubbish (especially Sam Ashton - now that guy, doesn't have a clue). The drinks were cheap and the area was such good fun - please, if you're looking for...

Totally disagree with all the negative reviews, the music is loud but totally bearable and exaggerated on here. Rooms were big and nice with air con and bottled water, staff were amazing felt so welcome, helped us plan trips and the owner even gave 7 of us a lift to the ferry port!! (30 min drive) free of charge. Brilliant...

We stayed here for 3 nights. When we arrived we ended up been upgraded from our originally booked 4 person room to two 2 person rooms. We were on the 5th floor and had a rooftop terrace. The rooms were clean and had air-conditioning and a fan. The owners were friendly and helpful. At night it obviously is quiet loud...

Location is excellent. Close to the beach, shopping, restaurants and bars. Our AC room for 4 people had flat screen TV & fridge & private bathroom. Room price was cheap. The rooms were big and clean. First floor have Irish Pub with pool tables & reception area. Free wifi but it only worked downstairs. Staff was really nice and helpful....

Thank you for your review. Yes, unfortunately for some and fortunately to others we are located in the middle of the busiest party area in Koh Samui. So my advice if you want to have some fun time and want to party Moby Dick Guesthouse is the perfect place to stay. Everything is only step away from our guesthouse... bars,...

booked to stay here after leaving another guest house for 3 nights. Only stayed 2 and refused to stay a third night. Worst place to stay if you want a good nights sleep. Music thumping from the club down stairs until 5am!. No sleep even after going out and coming home before 5am. Room was clean at least but very...

When we first found this place, we were shocked that it would only be 500 baht for a double bed, air conditioned room. The room was bright and beautiful, with a fridge, balcony and SO clean. It was a great location during the day, but as soon as the night came.. Oh my god. I know reviews have mentioned the...

Whenever i think of my stay here i laugh and shake my head... First time in Chaweng so we knew very little and we wanted somewhere cheap to lay our heads... The room was basic, stuffy and the bathroom was small. I think we got a complimentary bottle of water each which was probably the only good thing about it....
