I would not recommend this hotel ”
Have stayed in at First House in 2017, I booked three rooms for our family Koh Samui holiday in 2018. The rooms were, as asked, all on the ground floor for easy access for our elderly parents. That was probably the first disaster - being right near reception meant we heard every sound made by staff every single morning - and they are loud! They yell at each other (rather than speak) as early as 5.30am in the morning, they never lift chairs (but rather prefer to pull them across the floor). My parent’s door lock was faulty which meant that even when locked anyone could open the door by simply pulling the sliding doors open. Staff refused to change rooms or have the door lock repaired. The rooms were not all equipped with cups and glasses which meant that at check out we were charged 400baht to replace them (outrageous). And never in my life have I met ruder hotel staff who don’t understand, don’t care and openly talk rudely about customers - right in front of you!!

Do not stay here”
I have nothing good to say about this place. The front desk staff was unhelpful and unfriendly, our bathroom had mold everywhere, the restaurant was expensive and the food wasn’t good, the air conditioner leaked, it was loud, it didn’t look like the pictures. I could go on but there’s no point. Don’t stay here. Everywhere we walked past looked nicer. You could definitely get better value for your money.

Amazing location!”
This hotel is very relaxed, far enough away from the party strip that it is quiet at night, but only a short taxi drive (or 30 minute walk) in if you do want to go out in the town. The beach is amazing, is a bit stony at the top, but gets sandier the closer you get to the sea, the actual sand and sea is very clean, no seaweed, and very warm and clear! And their hotel pool is also lovely, long enough to swim lengths, or to relax in. The food served for breakfast (included for us) is simple and delicious, and the hotel rooms themselves are very basic but have everything you need - free water, air con, hairdryer, comfy bed and i think all rooms have a terrace/balcony. There is a laundrette right outside the hotel, and plenty of tour shops to organise your days activities in. The hotel staff also are so friendly! They helped us get cheap minibuses around the island, and looked after our luggage for a few hours after we checked out. Would stay again!

If you order a standard room, they will put you in a dirty hostel over the road. Upon extra payment, we were accommodated in the main building where everything was okay. This accommodation is a disaster where, through the toilet and the bathroom, you can see a balcony from which another building is 1 meter. The main hotel had a 50% occupancy, so it seemed like robbing people. I had a stay in January already in June, so I did not stay in the hotel. Especially that they had my money half a year. Milos

This hotel is very outdated. The shower, ac, and the toilet barely worked. When I asked the receptionist about the problem, she asked if I wanted to change room. When I did, it was a different problem at a different room. My second room’s bathroom flooded. When I decided to pay for the grand deluxe on my second visit, the toilet, ac, and the shower barely worked again. The WiFi was really slow. When I told the receptionist about the problem, she just told me to complain on the website. It’s one thing when I pay for a cheap hotel and get what I pay for. However, I paid for the most expensive room with a good view but I had so many problems. I don’t recommend.

lovely stay”
Breakfast was great with an assortment to choose from. The rooms were cleaned everyday. The swimming pool was big also allowing for toddlers to swim in 2 smaller and shallower pools. The beach was on our back porch. It was nice to see that while we were there they were busy cleaning and renovating the buildings.

It's a very basic and run down hotel in an excellent location. But given my requirements go as far as a clean room with clean sheets, good aircon and clean bathroom with running water - then I was satisfied. If you care more about what's outside your room (as do I), then go ahead and book this hotel. If you want the full resort experience, then pay an extra $100 a night - there is no shortage of lush resorts in Chaweng or indeed other areas on Koh Samui.

Nice base for a holiday Samui, Thailand”
I came back here because I love Samui and this is a very good hotel to use as a base (for me anyway). It's a 15 minute saunter down the beach or road to the busy buzzing heart of Chaweng but has everything you need to hand - but you can always rent a motor scooter for £25 $33) a week. There's a pleasant sheltered pool and just a couple of minutes from a beautiful clean beach where you can swim anytime - clean water and no dodgy waves/currents. (there are signs warning of rip-tides & jelly fish but I've never seen or heard talk of them and I've been there various times of the year). I paid a little extra this timefor a room with a balcony overlooking the pool...and buffet breakfast....and I think it was well worth it. The hotel isn't 'new' and some bits are showing signs of age (there are some dodgy recliners by the pool for example) but the rooms are decent sized with plenty of lights & sockets; bed's a bit firm but plenty big enough for 2 (at least!). Hot water, aircon, storage space, all ok. There's a sort of private beach with loungers free to use. I find staff friendly & helpful and always give small tips here & there - I doubt they are paid very well. If I go back to Samui (3 times in 2 years is maybe enough) I would stay here or one of the neighbouring places which are owned by members of the same family I believe.

Staff are wonderful, breakfast buffet is terrible. Beach is gorgeous total atmosphere not worth it ”
The sandy beach and clear water is beautiful, but the hotel actually shares it with the First Bungalow resort. The room is spacious and clean and staff are friendly and wonderful but the overall resort is old and not well maintained. There is a bridge over a dirty smelly ditch/pond that connects it to the beach area and there are lots of birds flying all over the place especially at the breakfast area. You cannot leave your table for few minutes and the birds will swoop down and steal your food on plate. We also paid extra to get breakfast included..it would be better to get breakfast somewhere else coz it wasn't worth the price. I must say the sunrise is spectacular on the beach..but had we known, we could have booked rooms next door at First Bungalows because the resort is well maintained and have a bigger nicer pool.

Good option a little removed from the hustle and bustle of Chaweng. ”
Great place, all be it starting to look a little run down. Helpful staff, nice pool, and only a short walk over the footbridge at the end of the pool to the lovely beach of Chaweng Noi, which is much nicer than Chaweng beach. Room was neat and clean, but the beds are very very firm. Too firm for most I would think.

Nice big rooms which surround a pool like a cruise ship. Reception girls were very nice & friendl”
Rooms were clean and spacious. The outside of the building however could do with a fresh coat of paint. Located in a quieter part of town and a short walk over a bridge to a nice beach. Also close to good restaurants and good cocktails at The Bamboo Bar. Friendly, professional staff 😊
