    Nice hotel, quiet.”
    It is not too well located, if you have no transport. There are a few bars near & food is ok. When a place like this offers 'fresh milk' as UHT milk, find another venue for breakfast! The staff are very good. Twice I printed Boarding Passes & all smiles. Nice little pool. And a short walk to Samui Noi Beach. Ignore the ;Do Not Enter' signs. The establishment on the beach is closed!

    budget beach hotel”
    good location, close to beach and main road, but quite, affordable price
    Hotel located close to main road, where you can get bus to any place in island. Hotel located about in ten minutes by walk from Chaweng beach, in two minutes by walk from a lot of massage shops, close to good restaurants with thai and western food. Most of guest in hotel was russian couples without children. Breakfast was very good (but expensive, 250 baht/person). Another good thing is free towels for beach, which changed everyday.

    quiet, convenient and free wi-fi
    worth the money.. nice and clean room with free wi-fi... its located on the edge of chaweng so if you're looking for busy night life then you may want to choose other option. the weak point is that it doesn't close to the beach so you will need to use public transportation or rent a motorbike.

    Lovely Pool, clean and brand new ! Friendly staff. Value for money.
    No lift! need taxi to get around.
    We loved the stay a lot! Koh Samui is a must see for South Africans and the Hotel was a great help in finding all the attractions! We have a Phuket based travel company and we visit all different places to advise our own clients and The First residence will be on top of our list for budget travellers. Our company is called Paradise Golf Tours and we cater especially for South africans who want to see Thailand. The rooms were very clean and the nice folded towels was a good surprise!

    First to give a great deal!”
    The price, the food, bar/ minibar prices, the swimming pool, the cleaniness, free internet access
    Reception staff could be slow, especially if someone else was checking in and you wanted something. Bathroom toiletries not replaced. A little bit of the beaten track for some
    Excellent value for money and service for the price. I felt previous reviews were rather unwarranted. Newly opened. It will become very popular soon!Airport pick-up excellent, and they transferred us to their sister hotel(First House)on the beach free of charge. You can use the beach facilities of the sister hotel which is 5 minutes walk away.Hotel was quiet, great prices and pool. Would definately ecommend it.

    Great Hotel Option Close to Beach”
    If you're looking for a hotel that offers a great balance of value, convenience, friendly staff and comfort this is a great option. By staying here you'll also have access to the private beach that is part of the First Residence, First Hotel and First Bungalow Resort. You have access to a second pool that is closer to the beach. It's a little quieter in this area but there are still plenty of restaurants close by. Alternatively, you can walk to the food court (15min) or take a Tuk Tuk (4min). The beach is great, clean water and not too crowded. We stayed at the more expensive bungalow for the first 5 nights and the staff at First Residence are much friendlier and more helpful as a general rule. Good size rooms, reliable wifi and good breakfast.

    It's a nice hotel ”
    Great place in Chaweng noi area, far away from noise but at the same time close to the center. Hotel has own beach but you have to walk there. Beach is always crowded. The room is big but air con was pretty old and produced awful sound. So be aware of it. It's not possible to regulate temperature in the air con as well and it is freezing like hell. It was very annoying during my whole stay but luckily there was very rainy period so I didn't use the air con that much. This hotel would have been much better if they changed air con system. Swimming pool is very small and doesn't look like on the pictures. The rest: staff, breakfast, room service was fine.

    The swimming pool, the buffet breakfast and the size of the room.
    Due to the fact that it was my birthday week in Thailand I wanted to stay at a hotel that was close to the beach, relaxing, with a good buffet breakfast. I was lucky. I got everything I asked for even a good swimming pool. The rooms were comfortable, staff friendly and efficient, and it was in a good location to tour about or hang at the beach. I would reommend this hotel to other travellers.
