First Bungalow Beach Resort

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Its a good hotel located at the end of Chaweng road. Nothing superior but fits the wallet for most people. The largest positive is the breakfast! Love it. And of course their own beach! Recommend the hotel for couples or singles.

The most terrible hotel. no service. I was not treated well, they did not clean the rooms for days and left me without towels.And the cost of cleaning clothes is very expensive,Beds are uncomfortable..

Just stayed at the first bungalow for six days and continues rain! the pool area nice we had a pool view room which was old but ok the beds were like concrete and so was the pillows i found the reception staff a liitle rude they love being on there phones and when you approach them in a friendly way its like i was interupting them. The location is a bit far away from the main area but some nice restaurants around and bars walking distance. I would recommend a beach bungalow or pool bungalow. The beach was nice but we never got to sit on it due to big swells and more rain try and keep away from koh Samui in the beginning of nov so disappointed our first trip there and it was a monsoon.

I think this was the worst hotel on Koh Samui. It's very old. Rooms are clean. But everything is very old. Staff very unhelpful, not speaking english. There was reconstruction in my building and none inform me or offer me to change my room in another building, because this would cost more for them to make upgrade and leave me to have my vacation I had pay for . Unbelievable ! They preffered to leave in the building with reconstruction instead of offering me to sleep in another building without the noise from reconstruction. The breakfast - poor. All insects flying on the food. Coffee is the worst. Location is very bad. Far away from the city, every time you need to spend 300THB for taxi. Beach is OK but in the night is very dark. TV - not a single channel that you can watch. I am happy only from my cleaning lady. Never again in this hotel.

Its well worth the upgrade to get the beach bungalows. You may want to send them a message prior to arrival to tell them you want complete ocean view, because there are 2 rows of bungalows on the beach, the second row is behind the first with a limited view. Breakfast buffet was good, ate at the restaurant every morning. There are many restaurants outside the resort, its worth it to go to the main street to eat. There are a few within the same driveway of the resort but the experience was better outside the area. Pool was clean and large, with a pool bar on deck, we didnt spend much time in the ocean water, 1 out of 6 days the water was safe to swim in. Otherwise the currents are bad. Its a great resort I'd go back.

We were in the hotel last September. The hotel was ok for the price you paid. We were in one bungalow next to the pool and we quite like the room. The breakfast was ok and the price for the drinks on the pool and beach bar are ok, a bit overpriced but still cheap. The location of the hotel isn't great but if you don't mind to walk, you are in the main street in about 15 minutes. Overall, the place is good for a cheap one but the reception staff isn't friendly at all.

Very good place. Nice pool open untill very late, 11 og 12 in the evening. So close to nice beach. Not too far away from senter. An a little off the busyest roads. Breakfast food ok, its outside a 2 min walk from hotel, but in an open air with nice view. We would return again.

Hotel itself looks like a village because it located in a large area with peaceful. Fantastic pool and the most beautiful beach in Koh Samui are surrounded. Almost hundred choices of breakfast are hot served. Recommended!!!

I never got a worse place to stay in Asia - although I got a Deluxe-Room. The hotel is a shame, old, people not very kind, directly to the "Resort" is a channel - a breeding ground for moskitos. I try to change booking at the travel agency and hope to leave tomorrow.

Staff at the reception were all unfriendly which is something you wouldn't expect in a so called "Resort". On top of that, we wanted to take a taxi to go the airport by ourselves because it was 400THB if we took it from the Hotel. When we were leaving a guy from the Hotel told us that there were no Taxis at that time (lying, we saw there were a few on the street) and that we had to book it from the Hotel. Then a Taxi appeared and the guy started to speak in Thai with the Taxi driver to tell him we were to pay 400 baht. Again, you wouldn't expect this behaviour from a worker of the same Hotel. Of course, we didn't pay that price as it was way too expensive for a 15 minute ride. Would not recommend at all.
