I've found a nice hotel with beautiful beach. Always love to go pool party? That's one of the biggest pool party in Koh Samui. Beach party was so much fun at night, fireman show, dancing girl next to DJ's. It's good for solo travelers who love to enjoy party at beautiful hotel. Good service, friendly staff, cozy room, nice beach...

Our family visited here for a dance and drink together after dinner. My husband and I went home about midnight and our three kids stayed to party. Their phone was stolen and when they asked around, they were told they needed to pay to get it back. My sons became angry and abused the security staff and they were attacked...

Room was Pretty good.. Clean and roomy. Nice little balcony. Location was very good. Good place to stay if you like to be in the centre of Action. Can be a bit loud at night so if your not into the party scene it could be obtrusive.

Booked a premium deluxe room and what we got looked nothing like the pictures on the website, room was old and tired. Check in takes a while, you get the run down on what it is going to cost you should you break or lose something. You have to pay 1000Baht deposit for the pool cards/key. The noise from the...

We are a fun couple in our 30s and was excited for the pool and beach parties. But my expectations may have been too high. Firstly, we booked a premier deluxe room which had so much wear and tear. The door had a crack in it, there was a sewage smell coming from the bathroom and when we took a...

I was so excited about this hotel, it looked like a good place to stay! WRONG The rooms are filthy dirty, stained bed linen and curtains, poor wifi signal if any!
