Horrible staff, horrible service. When we arrived at the hotel, the first thing they asked at the reception is to pay full amount of reservation. When that was done and the bill signed, they said "We are very sorry, but the hotel is full, so you will have a room in another hotel" WHAT??? After making a huge scandal they...

We have had a lovely stay in Dara Samui, we were greeted by a porter to carry our bags up all the steps (poor chap!) Then we were given cold towels and a cold drink while we checked in. Our room wasn't ready as we landed quite early in the day but the staff went and prepared one for us....

The staff at Dara are exceptionally helpful and always so pleasant whenever you see them. Very courteous and can't do enough to help. Personal highlight was the waitresses unexpectedly singing happy birthday to my girlfriend and bringing her a cake in the morning with no hint to me about it! They also helped me plan a birthday night out by...

Most importantly, the staff was very friendly, and after two days, the front desk ladies all remembered my name and room number. Second, the room was decent sized and the bed was totally comfortable, invariably sleeping well every night. Location is perfect as I never needed a taxi: restaurants, bars, shopping, and night clubs abound within a half mile... easy...

We love Thailand and the people as we have travelled there many times but this was a sad experience. Dirty rooms, smelling of urine and mould, lacklustre hospitality and 'Garden View Rooms' of dilapidated resorts next door. Our Air-Con didn't work for the first 24 hours and breakfast was a non-event in terms of offerings. The one good thing about...

The hotel is located in the Chawen beach road. The hotel is decorated in Thai style. The front office is helpful. But the room is a bit old with no sunshine. The pillows are high . I used to have low pillows. The room amenities are not that enough. The restaurant is good. The servers are nice.
