    Good hotel with bizarre signs everywhereThis hotel did the job. 2 bug pools both of which were nice. We had a pool access room in the new block. The room was bug but a bit sparse. No easy chair for example and fairly limited storage. Pool access was down some stairs. The pool is pretty badly designed and getting in and out is difficult. If you have any mobility issues don't bother booking one of these rooms. Book one in the older section where the pool is easier to access. Breakfast was fine and served until 10.30. The staff were helpful too and we rented a car and booked scooters with the hotel without problem. The hotel is in the centre of lamai. Right next to loads of shops and place to eat and drink but a 3min walk from the beach. The beach is pretty mediocre. All around the hotel and in your room you will find signs reminding you not to do things you'd never thought of doing. I found this odd and a bit like being back at school. Overall though the hotel was fine .

    Good location but noisy Being in the centre of Lamai, the property is well placed but that also brings major drawbacks. One being that the music from the bars easily penetrates the rooms and goes till early hours. The beds are hard, for me that's a massive disappointment but most beds in Asia are hard. Pool was clean but the pictures are dramatised. Not as big as you would think. Hire a motorbike somewhere else as the budget motorbike is as expensive as the premium in other parts of Thailand. Rooms are ok, shower and toilet are good, cleaning service was good, breakfast was what you would expect from a hotel of 3 to 3.5 stars. Greeting was lovely and the complimentary drink was amazing. Just bare in mind that the walls and floors are thin. You will hear the neighbours walking around above you if you book a pool access suite.

    Nice hotel with good poolsThe swimming pools were clean and of good size. We ended up staying round the pool most days. Breakfast is good with options changed each day. Kitchen is spotless. The rooms are a good size and cleaned each day. I did hear some music from the bars (as they are not far at all) but only as background noise and didn’t bother me at all. A friend we met there didn’t hear any music from his room. It’s a minute walk to the beach which is great with lots of restaurants both on the beach and on the main road. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would recommend.

    Stay here, you must”

    I'll be coming back for sure, excellent location right in the centre of everything yet quiet and peaceful (when the Chinese aren't trying to drown their own children). 2 pools in vastly differing styles, we first had a pool access room on the more modern pool with the swim up bar, this was really nice however the balcony was completely enclosed and had no sun, from there however you could climb out and into the pool, this was more of an obstacle course but, pool access direct from the room was achieved, even if advanced acrobatics were necessary. The room was quite noisy, chair dragging and heavy footsteps from upstairs etc so we changed to a pool side room by the other more traditional pool for a couple days which was much better. So back to what I eluded to above, there was a large proportion of Chinese guests who would come and basically invade the peace and quiet by the traditional pool at about 4pm everyday, one of them felt the best way to teach their son to swim was to throw him in the pool and beat him while the child literally screamed for its life. I intervened when I saw the father actually push the kids head under water in what I knew to be at least half a meter more depth than the child's height. Now this isn't the hotels fault or even within their control, however this is not the first time I've witnessed this kind of behaviour and if this hotel is often used for such parental practices, I'm not sure I want to witness it. That aside, I would definitely stay here again, right up until I felt I had to police the pool again. I did think it was slightly expensive but maybe 15-20% on what else is available in the area.

    The only thing I wish they had was phones in the room. When traveling g in a group, it was difficult to communicate with everyone. Wifi was spotty, it worked well in the lobby. Overall it was a great stay.

    Am Samui Palace Hotel,”

    Big clean rooms, friendly staff, nice pool area, central location

    The Am Samui Palace Hotel is well located near the shops, restaurants and nightlife. During the day time beach access is a short walk through another resort. However to get to the beach at night or early in the morning means walking along the main road and down a long side street as the gates are locked. This was only an issue for us as I had the crazy idea of getting up early to watch the sun rise. Security seems very good and both the reception staff and cleaners are very friendly.

    Great pool and friendly staff!!
    A short and a little confusing walk to the beach.

    This is a fantastic value for the money!! The breakfast was good but only had 3-4 choices. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. The air conditioning was very cold and the pool water was very warm. I loved the location in the middle of everything in Lamai. The Muey Thai fights a couple of blocks away were fun to watch and free. Overall, I think this hotel was a much better value than the hotel I stayed in in Chaweng for twice the price.
