I'm not normally someone who would write a negative review but feel compelled to do so after spend 11day at this Hotel and being a new Accor plus member. We stayed on the beachside which was meant to be the better side to stay and this is not a cheap hotel in Koh Samui. Our room was large but very...

We stayed beach side at the resort which is the better side to stay. The hygiene of the food keep is ordinary at best. I know Asia very well and know what to expect as I have been to Asia on at least 30 occasions, but this place is something else and certainly not what you would expect from a...

Pretty nice located when you take the beach side rooms. Rooms are generous but dirty. Especially the bathrooms. We booked two deluxe rooms and in both is a lot of fungus and mold in the shower.

Nice big rooms right on the beach. Breakfast buffet was the usual experienced in Thailand (not great/not poor). Short walk into town, far enough from the crazy and noise to relax. No issues at this hotel, all good during our stay (group of 8).
