Came in here with my boyfriend while waiting for our boat. We ordered two soft drinks and the server saw that I had about a thumb full of water left in my bottle which I had on the table and told me that I couldn't bring water from outside in. This was an absolutely ridiculous thing to say to a... More

As I told you when you brought this up with me we have no problem with people having a drinking water when they come in the bar as long as they order something and be an ordinary decent customer like everywhere else in the world. Every day this is the case and people bring with them already opened waters, order... More

Stopped off at the hub whilst waiting for the ferry back to Samui. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Good food, decent prices. It's located just across from the ferry pier, so it's really convenient too. The bar also has a full list of the ferry timetables, so that's handy too!

The breakfast here helped me have speedy recovery from my hangover so I feel like I am forever in their debt. Good iced coffee and juice and decent eggs. Slightly slow service but it was quite busy.

We had a nice experience with renting a scooter for a couple of days. No crashes and no problems at all. The owner checked the bike afterwards, and everything went smoothly.
