I really wanted to like this resort. It is beautiful, stately, with a gorgeous beachfront, the staff went above and beyond. The rooms are dated and ready for a renov but everything was in good working order. What I disliked and what takes so much away from this resort is their ridiculous money hunt. Everything is severely overpriced, the food was expensive but of poor quality. As soon as you arrive they start with all sorts of ridiculous methods and schemes to get as much money from their guests as possible. $5US for a bottle of water. $3US for a can of soda. Everything in the room has a price tag on it. The frig is jammed packed with overpriced items. Worst breakfast buffet I have had in Ko Samui with a price tag of $24US. No eateries within a block or 2 so you are kinda stuck with their money grabs. It is so classless and crass that it diminishes your stay. Real shame. They could do better.

Rooms need to be refurbished ASAP. In its current state it is a 3 star hotel. Nice beach and pools. Excellent staff works hard to overcome insufficient investment in guest room updates and repairs. Great potential if the owner starts maintaining the guest rooms.

This hotel is hard to rate.. great staff but definitely needs work! Room had a lot of mold in the bathroom and also very tired 90s decor. Pool had odd big external filter pumps everywhere which were an eyesore. Also Buffett was sub par at best. Again the staff was amazing top to bottom but the owners need to re-invest in this property. Will not stay here again.
