Weekender Resort4.0 out of 5.0

I had an enjoyable 10-night stay at the Weekender resort. It is very central in Lamai and has direct access to the beach. I originally booked a Standard room but upgraded to the next level which only cost another 3,500 Baht per night (£7)and was well worth it. The Standard room I was in was very clean but a bit old and in need of updating; main reason I upgraded was the shower was so poor in standard room. For those wanting a bit more luxury, the individual bungalows looked nice and are priced around 4,500 Baht p/n. I would be tempted to book one of them, if I stayed at the Weekender again. The food selection at breakfast was quite good and eggs/omelettes could be cooked as requested. The pool and beach area was kept well, plenty of space sunbeds. No need to rush for your spot etc. They were building a new beach bar when I was there, which should be finished now and which will help the beach and pool areas. The pool looked very clean and well kept. I found the staff very friendly and helpful, so I don't understand some of the negative comments in other reviews. I had no problems at all and would definitely consider staying at the Weekender again. The rooms are a little on the dark side, but a bit of TLC and some lighter décor would have quite an impact. Hotel areas are clean and well kept. I found the hotel and guests qiet and considerate in the morning - a blessing.
The worst hotel that we had during our journey on Samui and Phangan, where we stayed in 4 different hotels. All standard rooms are located in one very old building, that is falling apart. Half of the rooms are with garden view and another ones are on a noisy tourist street side. We stayed there 2 nights (garden side) and in 2 different rooms. Noise from the corridor and neighbor room is very irritating. Bad smell in the room, towels are raveled, in the second room we even didn’t get hands towels, bathroom door lock was broken, so the door didn’t stay closed, there were no cold water in one of the bathroom sink, in the bath the water temperature was not stable, it changed rapidly, the water that came from bathroom sink and bath was salty (I really don’t know how is it possible and what water do they use, maybe they use sea water), in second room the main ceiling lamp didn’t work, the hotel garden area was very dark and in both of our rooms there were more mosquitoes than we so outside of the hotel during the night. Breakfast was very poor, I didn’t find much to eat. Only good thing was the pool (although it would also need renovation) and the massage service that was on the beach (good massage). I don’t understand how the hotel can have 4 stars?
Rooms are quite dark with little lights. I had to change rooms because the shower flooded the entire bathroom and my AC would not go below 25C (far too hot for me). Breakfast is not good at all. I stuck with salad and fruit as the rest looked unedible. Service is not very good either as they don't really listen to your requests. The front desk even hung up on me as I tried to sort out the wifi as it just wouldn't connect (must have had the last person still connected to is as only 2 devices per room). I asked for a late check out as I have an evening flight and they want to charge me 20% of the room fee. This would seem reasonable (to some) but they don't clean my room until 2-3PM anyway so really, there would be no difference in what they are doing except to make more money off you. The location is OK and beach chairs are fine. If you have little to no interaction with staff and don't eat at the hotel, it would be passible. I have been to Samui numerous times and I will not stay here again.
I am staying at the hotel in July and it is disappointing to read some of these negative reviews. So far I have sent two emails regarding transfers and they have replied very quickly. The transfers are cheaper than other websites. I do write reviews wherever I stay so I will write one for here also and let you know my thoughts. To be honest, I know it is in a quiet spot and away from chaweng beach. I don't really need a kettle in my room and I am more interested in the service and quality of the rooms. Stay tuned and I will let you know in July but I am very pleased that they reply so quickly. Last year I spent three months in Europe and replied took days if not weeks.
Absolutely horrible, if you want to be respected and treated like a person do not stay here. Have never felt so unwelcome somewhere, staff are rude and disrespectful. Also 'standard rooms' are a joke and waste of money, overlooking the road.
For a start rooms areold, no lighting except 1 bulb, and no furniture other than bed. The water is salty hence not good to wash your hair or brush your teeth. The standard rooms are 50 meters away from pool and absolutely no view. People in the street can see inside yourroom so you must close the blinds all day for privacy. Shower facilities are old. Could not lock the door of the room. Staff is strict and not helpful....also charged me 500 baht for a 200 baht taxi ride.....
There is no service at the hotel. During breakfast no personnel to clean the tables, guests need to do it by themselves to find place to eat. Secondly they run out of food constantly, you need to be quick to get especially fruits. Hotel is pretty full and all sunbeds are taken, there are extra beds but again no staff to help you. Otherwise hotel is ok, good location. Potential place but badly managed.
This my 2nd visit and it has changed, they have added more rooms which make it look more like a resort. Lovely pool with plenty of beds and leads straight onto the beach, which is perfect. The hotel is central in Lamai, so good access to the shops and restaurants and the markets. Visited this hotel in November, so not high season. Like this hotel and would return.
By looking around lamai beach area I believe this place have the best and nicest swimming pool. Largest resort ground and beautiful landscaped garden. nice & fresh modern room with great bed quality. Great staff with always the Thai smile, awesome breakfast varieties. I recommend this resort for anyone.
I stayed here with my wife over Christmas. The rooms were standard, a bit on the small size. The bathroom needs serious attention especially as the shower over the Bath floods the room, which could cause a slip and a fall. The breakfast was poor, cereal stale, not much choice and after our second day we ate away from the hotel. The pool was nice and clean. Location excellent for access to main strip.
