Very good stay loved the bungalow Amazing view while having breakfast nice pool and right on the beach😎 it's about a fifteen to 20 minute walk from the main drag but we liked the walk but there are plenty tuk tuks to get you up and down if you don't fancy walking👍

This hotel has great staff that make you feel so welcome. The owner/manager is simply a great guy and makes you laugh if you are lucky enough to have a drink with him at the bar. I thoroughly recommend this resort to anyone wanting a good holiday in Thailand. It is also close to everything you need should you wish...

This is such a nice place to stay.. Bit away from the center so rather calm surroundings but near enough to the action. Superfriendly staff, nice breakfast, spacious, clean rooms. Also: a pool and the ocean is right at your feet. Highly recommended!

Nice cabin room with lots of space. Pool has a great view. Resort charges 4X taxi rate for their Airport Shuttle and refused to call a taxi. Restaurant was empty and food and drink prices were much more than anywhere else in Thailand.

We stayed here for two nights on arriving in Ko Samui. The room we were in was a small hut but was enough room for two, sort of. The pool is in a good location and was good to cool down with in the morning, mainly as our room had rubbish AC so we melted during the night. During the...

We spent 2 nights in this familiar hotel. Our 3 little children were adored by the staff and we really had a relaxing time here. Kids lived the pool, the jacuzzi and the breakfast. We were allowed to have a late check out so the boys could sleep after lunch. Cleaning was good, food excellent (hot chocolate for breakfast:))! We...

We stayed at Papillon for 4 nights over New Years Eve on our family vacation and had 2 Large Rooms - Breakfast included. The location is quiet and away from Party Central, which we loved. Some of the staff were very nice and friendly. We were disappointed that there was no beach at all in front of this hotel, the...

I would like to write a good review about the hotel, as the staff was very nice and helpful and good location close to the sea, but there were some facts which left a very bad impression. Shortly: very tiny shallow pool with jacuzzi without water, shower in the bathroom without pressure and water is not dripping at all, and...

Had a bit of a bad experience with this place. At first the hotel seemed nice, location was good, the girl who checked me in was nice and the room was ok. I had thrown my stuff in my room and switched on the TV when I heard a scurrying noise from the roof. I switched off anything making noise...

We had to call the tourist police. we were sleeping one night in this hotel. We decided to go somewhere else that we did not like the treatment of staff, the Boss and the full hotel was FRENCH, no thai personal, and they are very rude , the worst treatment I had in Thailand. The French owner was drunk when...

“I'd be tempted to go for a slightly larger room than you think you'll need from the photos. If in doubt, email the resort as I found them very good at communicating and answering questions.”
