18-25 don't stay anywhere else. This is the place you want!
Booked 4 nights. Then booked an extra then came back for another! Couldn't stay away from the place. Thought we'd booked somewhere different for one night and big mistake. So left after 5 minutes at other hotel to return here. Staff very friendly and willing to help. Big shout out to Pat, lovely lady. 3 pools available. Main pool I found the best but was shut for maintenance for a couple days but happy to use other pools. Very modern and clean hotel. No faults at all! Location right on the beach. As mentioned I recommend this hotel for the younger or those who don't mind music playing all day in the background and a good beach party on Wednesday and Friday's. If I was to return to koh samui. I would be booking here straight away. Trust me on this one! Food was also lovely, maybe a tiny bit more than those elsewhere but good quality and for us was perfect. Bit cheaper than English prices for English food. ARK BAR ALL THE WAY

Over Priced Hotel!
ArkBar is over rated, the food & beverages sold at the premises is over priced, some of them even double the price. When you are at the bar by beach, you are constantly disturbed by the locals who are selling many items. The restaurant / hotel is doing nothing about it. There are plenty more reasonable hotels / resorts right along Chaweng Beach!

Dorm style hotel
I didn't like the hotel or the service I got there on Thursday. And the check in was just annoying, having to lug around huge keys to different parties and the a/c only worked when the key was left in a slot, which meant you would return back to a hot room every time u went out for a while. My room was never cleaned, and the person at the front, Mew was very rude. I told him this and he told me I was supposed to put the card in the window requiring service. After telling him I did, he replied "I don't believe you and I have to check the cameras." The location is great because it is close to the parties outside the hotel which were great, the party inside the hotel didn't seem like much at all. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.

Best stay in Koh samui.
Myself and my friend stayed here and if was definitely the place we stayed. I highly recommend it. . The rooms are jus amazing for the price, cleaned everyday, there are two pools , one with a bar in the pool. They have restaurant with really good food. Have something for everyone. They have a beach party every Wednesday and Friday and they are jus great. Cannot speak highly enough of it.

Good Location
Good Location, Nice Staff m IMPROVE POINT Should be check room before guest check in. when staff open room am smell who throw up but it late night.So I didn't tell any thing when I check in bathroom have some one throw up in wash basin.Next day I request staff to check my room. After came back from day trip they already clean with good smell. hope resort will be carefully this point to much. As we know your property have bar so some day guest throw up in room after check out should be double check cleaning room.

Great stay
We stayed here for 9 nights and really enjoyed it. We didn't get a lot of sleep though so if you are not going our every night don't expect to sleep until 2am even if you are in the quiet zone. Also be wary of drugs we actually asked for a refund as the guy below us was on some serious drugs and yelling and abusing anyone that walked past and asking people to buy his drugs. We went to reception and they said they would look into it however not a lot was done and they just cleaned up after him each time he threw all his stuff out the front door. This was hard for us as we didn't feel safe. There were signs at the resort saying that drugs were illegal and not permitted . Other than that location was great.
