Simply outstanding! Beautiful place with a swimming pool in front of the sea. The staff is very friendly staff and always looking after you!! The food is just delicious and the decor at the top! A very good address in Koh Samui, do not moss it !

We have just stayed at this great hotel for 5 nights with two teenagers. We had 2 seperate rooms and they are very spacious. The bathrooms are very big. The staff are awesome, very friendly and professional. Breakfast was important to us with variety for our children and it did not disappoint. The restaurant was so beautiful on the beach we dined two nights which we try to avoid usually. You are very central to everything but tucked just out of the busy bar life. I highly recommend. We will be back.

Nice rooms, good location which was quiet although close to busy areas and very friendly and attentative staff. All round we were very happy with our stay. And would recommend for a family or couple who want quiet days with the option of hectic nights a short walk away

Great hotel. Perfect location. Right in the center of the night life but very quiet. Close to the beach. You can relax by the pool or on the beach. Rooms are very spacious. We were 2 adults with 2 children sharing the same room. Bathroom is also very big and nice. Great attention to the small details and to your needs. The staff is five stars!

I was at the Dara samui beach resort from 18th to 20th June 2017 with my family. We had 5 rooms. The hotel staff is rude. The rooms stink. The ceiling of one of the rooms was dripping. Toilets had no blinds. The bath fittings look like a century old. The breakfast plates were not cleaned properly and the so called "BEACH" is just ugly with very less space and worse swimming pool. Overall I would not suggest anyone to spend your money on such a bad property.

Looks lovely from the outside. What you see in the pictures is what you get. Very cute and romantic. Quite old fashioned. Very unique experience as they provide dinner on the beach under a tipi. They speak very good English and are all very friendly. Great location for restaurants, bars, shops and straight on the beach! Although it's very Central you can't hear anything because it's all about 1 minute away. Good choice for breakfast and dinner. However they expect a THB3000 deposit which isn't really realistic because it was too much for people who have a certain amount to spend. Once you check out and leave Thailand we don't want to take money in their currency back to our country because it won't have any use. Although I was given the option to pay upon arrival whether in cash or card, they charged my bank straight away even though I had the money in cash to pay. So that wasn't a great way to start my holiday especially when I was charged more because of bank fees and exchange rates with the bank. However, our luggage was still to arrive because it was placed on a different plane to us the staff were quick to chase it up for us with the airport and within a few hours they were taking it to our rooms. Every staff member is friendly! They provide you with everything from towels to a beach bag and even an umbrella for when it rains! Room service is a bit over priced but that's expected.

The delux room was nice and big and clean although looked a bit tired. The shower water pressure did't work well (need to replace). The location is perfect for getting to restaurants and markets shortly. But, the hotel is close the construction site that you can see from balcony and it is noisy. The staff were very frinedly, especially at the beach front pool and bar. We could enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere.

We spent three nights at the Dara Samui resort in early June, let me start by saying this resort is probably 3.5 stars but don’t let that put you off. The resort is located centrally in the main shopping drag of Koh Samui and therefore is a convenient spot to wander at will through the markets and many shops just outside it’s doors. We found the accommodation comfortable and probably what you would expect from a resort of this rating. There are quite a few stairs depending on which floor you are on and due to its elongated design there is quite a walk from reception to the pool and eating areas. The water pressure varied and so did the shower temperatures, the rooms were a little out dated and could do with a freshen up. The beach area is not the best as the water is very shallow and quite tidal, but it is clean and tidy. But here is the thing this resort has a lot going for it, the staff are excellent , the cleaning was well done and prompt, the beach dining was excellent with the mesh tee pees that you dined under. The pool although quite small is shaded most of the day so you can relax in there without the fear of getting burnt to a crisp. Reception was good and this professionalism was shown right through to all the staff. The food was of a good standard and considering the price of this resort I would consider going there again.

This hotel was fantastic, it had an excellent breakfast selection, beautiful pool facilities, clean, spacious and well-decorated rooms and it was very conveniently located on Chaweng beach, a close walk to a variety of bars and restaurants. The only things that could be improved were the fact that there were a few holes on our sheets on the bed and we were only provided with one pillow each on the king sized bed. However I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Koh Samui.

Lovely Hotel Right on the beach Stayed for 15 nights - our Deluxe room was lovely .
