      Restaurant had a big enough menu, but I had to go through three different options before I found something that was actually available. The hotel was big a fairly well kept, but felt a little deserted by staff and other travelers.

      Pretty Good Value for the Money”

      Samaya Bura is located in Lamai Beach area, however, the ocean there is subsiding and a bit rocky this time of the year (mid-late April). Though no fault of the Resort, a good swimmable area of ocean is important to us. The pool is very nice but a bit small. The resort itself is beautiful and the staff even more so. Ask for a view room if you can get one. Daniel C.

      Beachfront location, nice restaurant, good quality rooms

      I'm staying here at the moment on a 3 week holiday and absolutely love it. The rooms have everything you need and are very comfortable, and there is a *really* beautiful garden area with a pool, bar, and restaurant, all of which is directly in front of the beach, which you have very easy access to. Service is also good. My only complaint would be that the hotel's WIFI is slow and unreliable, though I've been mostly able to get around with that with my phone through 3G and tethering. But I didn't come here to spend a lot of time on the internet, so it hasn't been a major inconvenience.

      Great place for a family holiday”

      Right on the water, nice pool, very friendly staff, quiet location, not to far from the main beaches (Lamai & Chaweng)

      We stayed here for 10 nights and would come back here again. In fact, we met another family who keeps coming back to this hotel. It is not a 5 star, but it is very comfortable, lovely location (the rocky coast has been cemented in and there is a sand beach right next door). The staff were very helpful and the manager even upgraded our room for free. It is about a 5 min drive to the Lamai beach and shops and a 10-15 min drive to Chaweng beach and shops. The restaurant next door is great and there is a coffee shop and a convience shop 2 min walk away. We enjoyed our stay and would come back.

      Nice hotel but not the best part of the beach”

      Nice hotel, breakfast ordinary, not much variation during our stay (10 days). Small pool, quite ok. The beach bar was closed and the surrounded area was broken (maybe by a storm) so the walking way to the beach was not in good condition. Very few guests during our stay so the place was pretty quiet. Our room was on the beach side which was good, the road side seemed to be quite noisy.

      Not good.”

      On arrival they demanded 2000baht for a key deposit which I think is unreasonable. I refused and so they asked for my passport, which of course I refused. It got a little nasty so I said I’ll just not stay and they then told me that I’d not get any refund at all for the four nights I booked. I was put in an impossible position, so had no choice but to stay. In the course of the heated discussion, they forgot to take my deposit, which was a small blessing. I was shown to my room which had twin beds. I always choose a large bed. I refused the room and I was by now annoyed. They then moved me next door to a room with a large bed as I had initially requested. The room as it turned out was on the road side of the hotel. I didn’t see this when I booked (CHECK)! The traffic is so bad I was awake at 6am. I complained, they said if I paid more they would move me, otherwise tough. I went to speak to the manager (Vin) - who stood smirking and saying no. The manager needs replacing.

      Cons- our room was left open twice from housekeeping. The second time the door was wide open. All our money/passports were right there for the taking. Manger suggestion was to get a free night but had to go through agoda to do so.. So mentioning it now Pros- Bath tub with hot hot water. Private Balcony. Was roadside but no problems as other reviews mentioned.

      TRUTHFUL REVIEW REGULAR SCOTTISH VISITOR TO KOH SAMUI”

      I am from Dundee, Scotland and have been coming to Samui for 13 years staying 4-6 weeks often at this hotel as well many other hotels so feel I’m well placed to review honestly. I’m Scottish and expect value for money, and this hotel is, especially now under their new manager Vince, (who speaks perfect English, is local and is very professional) unbeatable all round. It is a traditional Thai hotel with a laid back approach so if you want a quiet, relaxing, no fuss hotel this is perfect. Breakfast is quite basic but good value and served to you, not a buffet. Be aware provided they understand what you’re saying and they don’t always but smile as if they do - reception, restaurant, housekeeping will all aim to please you. Hope the new manager stays a while.

      We liked this place a lot. Staff are really sweet, upgraded us with sea view 3rd floor and extra bed free of charge. Can imagine that the room facing the street is not so great so better choose sea view on higher floor. The hotel was quiet which we liked traveling with children. If you choose this hotel we can recommend an very nice restaurant with fantastic atmosphere just 200 meters south down the street from the hotel, "The New Hut Bangalow Restaurant", very nice place by the Beach!

      In the professional Thai tourism environment, you get what you pay for. The rooms were expensive during the New Year period, the rooms and the service were just great, perfectly matching our expectations. The New Year gala dinner was very good but no vibes at all (the guests looked sleepy), so we proceeded to the Lamai beach where thousands of people were partying, dozens fireworks and thousands lanterns enlightened the sky ...
