Great value”
Price, staff performance and cleanliness
Cheap but a nice place. Was upgraded to the suite for free but it's pretty far from the beach and the rental for the motorcycles there are always full. But overall, great place at the cheap price.

Nice hotel, but beware of overselling ”
Value, pool, cleanliness
I had actually walked into this hotel and asked for a room but they told me it was sold out. Then found it listed on Agoda so I booked a room. When I arrived, they had to upgrade me to a much larger room because it was all they had left. During my stay I saw several other people walked to another one of their properties in a totally different area called Wimaan Buri. I wanted to extend my stay but they wouldn't let me. I could have still booked another room on Agoda but didn't want to get walked to the other hotel so I voluntarily moved to a different area. I will say that it was nice and quiet due to location, but also a little too remote at night. The road it's on is pretty dark and no other hotels nearby so I wouldn't walk from Chaweng to the hotel after dark w/o a flashlight.

joy residence”
Value, staff, quiet area
The Joy is ok but a little out of the way from the main entertainment areas. The rooms are clean, but no frills. Probable good value for a longer term stay as there was a small kitchen in my room. Limited TV. Good pool. Friendly staff.

Amazing stay over xmas and new year”
Staff, Cleanliness and the pool
Our stay was amazing. The staff couldn't do more to help. The rooms were fantastic and very very clean. We were only 10 min walk away from main strip in resort which we preferred as friends of our stayed on main strip and found it very noisy. I would definately book again to stay here if returning to Koh Samui. Fully recommend you stay here

Great value hotel”
Nice staff, great swimming pool, good price
The Joy Residence is one of my favourite places to stay on Koh Samui. The staff are always friendly and helpful, and the place has a "family" atmosphere once you've stayed there a few times and have gotten to know the people. Plus the swimming pool is one of the best on Koh Samui, and it's hard to beat the price you pay for a room. It isn't in the best location, but once you know your way around the island, you'll find it's not in such a bad spot, either.

Great value for the money”
Good price, friendly staff, great swimming pool
Although the Joy Residence is a little out of the way, it is excellent value for the money you pay. The rooms are clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. In addition, the swimming pool is one of the best on all of Koh Samui for doing laps. It's long, clean and generally not overused. Of course, you should realize that for this price, you're not going to get luxury. There is free Wi-Fi in the building, for instance, but I was lucky to get it working well about half the time I was there. There's also a fitness room, but the equipment is so old that you can't really do much with it. In addition, breakfast at the Joy Residence is quite basic and you do have to pay for it (a reasonable price), but on the plus side, it's pretty tasty and really all you need to get you through the day. The fact that this residence has a lot of repeat customers, many of whom spend their entire time on Koh Samui staying there, is a pretty good testament of what a decent place it is. It's not fancy and conveniently located, but if you're on a budget, it's a pretty hard place to beat.

Really nice place”
Swimming pool, large modern room, comfortable bed
We stayed at Joy as both my husband and I had Dengue fever, so we needed to be near the hospital for daily blood tests. The hotel was clean and quiet, which was exactly what we both needed. The swimming pool looked great, but we were too ill to use it.
