              Modest no frills as expected Location OK for walking to chaweng night market and beach access within 10mins. Beware of songtaew(step on/step off communal taxi) overcharging. Should be 50baht per person in day - travel to bo phut area, more expensive at night but negotiable. Hotel was quiet & easy to sleep, nice sized pool with attentive staff. Booking airport transfer via hotel on way back was cheaper than grabcar app(400 vs 460 THB).

              Nice getaway”

              The First Bungalow Beach Resort provides all the basic necessities to enjoy a relaxing holiday in Koh Samui. Clean hotel rooms, pool, semi-private beach, massage, beach bar/restaurant, hotel restaurant, and free beach towels. It isn't the most glamorous of resorts and rooms, but it's comfortable and family-friendly. You get what you expect for the price. It's close to other restaurants, tourist offices, pharmacies, motorbike rentals, and other hotels/shops. Only complaint our room was a bit dark and the nearby construction noises were a bit bothersome in the morning. But seeing that you're in Thailand for a holiday, other than sleeping, staying inside the room probably isn't a real concern for most. I'd recommend it to any friend or acquaintance looking for a nice time in Koh Samui on a bit of a budget.

              Breakfast was very good. Only a couple meter to walk to the beach. Large swimming pool.

              Stayed at the hotel for 3 nights, and i enjoyed it very much. Nice rooms and a nice bathroom with bathtub. A little far away from the center of Chaweng. But no problem juat hop on a bahtbus in to the center take about 5 minutes. WIFI connection in room was very poor.

The sea side were further away from the pool and lobby and pool rooms we wanted to be close to our friends.Great connecting rooms for families with children at the pool rooms safe for chidren enjoying a swim while parents in their rooms.

              This resort is located on the best part of the best beach on the island. Chaweng's night life is close and taxi's are easy to get for the short 1 km ride. Restaurants of all types are nearby too. The swimming, the water and the beach sand are incomparable. Enjoy!

              Phuket.. Koh Samui... not a fan. Better options elsewhere”

              The good..requested ground floor room and got it. Room was nice. Clean.. air con . Hot water. Nice bed. Clean sheets. Good tv. Breakfast was good..eggs cooked to order. And good selection of food. Hotel restaurant is next to one part of a beach peninsula.. so has views up the beach. Good location with 7-11 at front and plenty of restaurants around it. Pool was great. Can hire scooters from hotel at 200฿ a day or better bikes outside at 150฿ The bad. Full of chain smoking Russians and Germans.. there is no smoke free area around the pool so even If you pick a lounge away from the others someone can sit right next to you and smoke. The restaurant outside area needs to be made non smoking. The pool area needs to be non smoking..  Shares a beach with very upmarket resorts but beach bar was constantly closed others hotels bars were open. Improve the standard of the beach bar and include a restaurant or sitting area for meals. Found better hotels beach front on mainland..

              I will not book here again”

              On arrival, it took 2 hours to get my room sorted after I had booked 7 months ago. I emailed for many times within the 7 months to make sure of things and on arrival,the air did not work, rooms had dust sheets on them. I was so close to finding another hotel. They did not compensate me they just reduced the beach bungalows by 600 baht and we paid extra to stay the rest of the trip in luxury. Breakfast was promised to be packed for when we depart by the manager, but disappointingly it was not ready on the day we departed. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone traveling half way around the world for a private beach holiday.

              Beautiful beach ,rock hard beds”

              We stayed in a beach bungalow, great view of the beach . The bed and pillows are rock hard. Room service was ok but our room phone didn't work and after telling reception twice ,it was never looked at😞pool was big and clean but not much shade. Staff friendly and rooms clean . Great variety at breakfast .Would stay again if beds were not hard .

              Had my camera taken when a member of staff helped us to move our luggage to a better room. There was no help from staff on booking in desk to help find it. There was no lost property office. Told there was no security to do at least whatever was necessary to find where the camera went. The staff member helping to move our luggage disappeared off the scene on the second day. Spoke to Police who told us they go to the hotel every fortnight to check security. We saw them come in for breakfast a couple of days before we left. We received a letter from Police for an insurance claim but it is the photographs taken in Chaingmai we miss. Our stay at The Park was wonderful so thank you for that.

              We had a wonderful time staying at First Bungalow Beach Resort! The Beach was fantastic, the pool was even better and I'd recommend getting a massage from the ladies on the northern end of the beach. All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. Great value for money!

              Hmm.. wouldn't bother to stay here again.”

              The location is SUPERB. Access to both beaches is an enormous bonus! Staff were awful. Immediately upon check in they were very rude.. The area by the swimming was dirty. It didn't look like anyone bothered to clean there. I asked the staff to clean our balcony as there was dried poop all over it which had obviously been there a long time. It could be great if taken better care of and if the the usual thai politeness had been present..

              Great middle of range resort ”

              Overall a great budget resort. Pool was amazing and very clean but would have been nice to have a shallow end for the small kids, they could stand in jacuzzi but not main pool. Shame one jacuzzi wasn't hotter water too. Bedrooms big and basic, staff friendly, if I was being really picky id say a bit more bleach wouldn't go amiss in bathroom, towels on hand to grab for pool rather than request them be better and dont get the pedi, manicure in the hotel beach hut, prob worst one I've had and polishes all need to be replaced, massages there are the best I've had though.
