          Not bad, but not great”
          My friends and I stayed at this hotel in August 2017 and it was a disappointing, although we didn't have a bad experience. The hotel was empty and didn't seem like there were more than a couple people staying at the hotel other than us. The food wasn't great, the pool was small and the beach area was almost non-existant. We had to walk down the beach to find a place we could actually lay on the beach. Our room was spacious, although it was facing the highway which was loud. Our AC had no problems unlike other reviews.

          Excellent hotel. Value for money . The elevator does not work. . If you are staying at the 3rd floor ,its a good workout..Noisy if your room faces the road. Breakfast is simple. This hotel is nothing fancy. Ocean View is good but NO beach.

          Above average”
          Previously I have stayed in this hotel numerous times even up to a month for one of my visits. Up until this time I never had any problems or needed to complain. In less than 12months the room rates have more than doubled and the hotel is really showing its age. Money desperately needs to be spent. New mattresses are required as they actually have dents in them on both sides where numerous guests have slept in the beds. Air con is also a problem as you cannot control the temperature as they have become damaged over time. I either had it on and when it got too cold then had to turn it off. When I complained to management about these issues I was told because it is an old hotel. I was moved to a different room and the new bed was better but still had indents where it had been slept in by other guests. And again the same issue with the air con. The lift was broken when I arrived. In the 12nights I was there it wasn't fixed and looked like they had no intention of it ever being fixed. 3 days running I had to have an engineer come to my room to fix or patch up something. No hotel transfers from the airport are included and to organise a car to take you to the airport through the hotel is ridiculously expensive. I am not usually someone who complains. But seriously there are much nicer places you can stay for a hell of a lot cheaper. This could be a lovely hotel if the owner was prepared to spend money on it to bring it back to its former glory. As always the staff are lovely and try to make your stay as pleasant as they can under the circumstances.

          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.

          Not so good”
          Nice'n'friendly staff. No other particular positives. Location is not great and because the hotel is in the outskirts of Lamai and because of the exorbitant Samui-taxi mafia it costs a lot to go anywhere. What annoyed me was that on the first night I dropped one of drinking glasses in my room. Next morning I reported it to the cleaner so that she would not cut her feet. Nothing else was said. Then, when I checked, out I was charged THB 200 for the glass which you can likely buy just down the road in Tesco for THB 10.

          Rather disappointing”
          The hotel and related infrastructure are quite dated and not always functioning properly e.g. Air con or lights or flooded bathroom. The staff tried to help but it was pointless. No fresh fruit juices available at the bar only industrial ones. Breakfast was average. Luckily there was the Radiance restaurant at the Spa resort next door, both of which saved our trip. We don't recommend Samaya Bura and will probably not come back.

          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!
