Not a bad hotel not the bestest hotel! If you want travelodge style affordability in terms of booking a room then great! Rooms are small but cleaned daily which is great! Staff all seem very friendly but AO that works at the pool bar is always miserable never smiling, the hotel in general is lovely and clean! Food and drinks are more expensive… Read more
Not a bad hotel not the bestest hotel! If you want travelodge style affordability in terms of booking a room then great! Rooms are small but cleaned daily which is great! Staff all seem very friendly but AO that works at the pool bar is always miserable never smiling, the hotel in general is lovely and clean! Food and drinks are more expensive than local shops etc! I would say this is a completely honest review! Not a complaint! Roads and streets are currently undergoing building work so very dusty,paths are dug up! Taxi service haggle them down to 200 baht to go fisherman’s village! Good market and street food! Koh samui is definately up and coming compared to Phuket! But it’s still a gorgeous island and worth visiting! Now the worst part about this hotel THE POOL!! It’s so so small! And very crowded with children which is ok but if the pool was bigger you wouldent notice this! AND bed reserving has been mentioned a lot in the reviews and apparently staff stop you reserving...no! They do not stop you! You NEED to get to the pool for 7am if your wanting a bed or even a decent location! In the end me and my partner went to the CELES beach resort and hotel to sunbath and swim for 300 baht each! But apart from the above we had a fun,fabulous stay! Would we stay here again? Probably not! We would venture across other parts of the island and find a bigger hotel! If your wanting a cheap lunch there is a little boat that pulls up on the beach selling amazing food!!

The best thing about this ibis is the swimming pool area and the ocean view, so gorgeous. The rooms amenities are very basic, the bathroom is tiny. I liked that they leave free bottles of water in your room every day. Breakfast was a little disappointing for us, cause it was the same thing every day. Overall it was a good stay.

The best thing about this ibis is the swimming pool area and the ocean view, so gorgeous. The rooms amenities are very basic, the bathroom is tiny. I liked that they leave free bottles of water in your room every day. Breakfast was a little disappointing for us, cause it was the same thing every day. Overall it was a good stay. Beware of the scooter renting company inside the hotel. We rented a scooter to get around Koh Samui and it was the worst mistake we did. We had an accident and my foot toe broke, I had to go to the hospital and couldn't walk properly for the rest of my trip. It ruined our plans, so I would advise you not to rent a scooter and choose other transportation options. Read less

IBIS Samui Bophut delivered what I expected from an IBIS hotel and I'm happy with our stay. The bed was comfortable and cleanliness was excellent. Public spaces have large trash bins with lids if you want to get rid of e.g. food remains at once. The sea view is lovely and the hotel beach provides warning flags for jellyfish and rough seas.

IBIS Samui Bophut delivered what I expected from an IBIS hotel and I'm happy with our stay. The bed was comfortable and cleanliness was excellent. Public spaces have large trash bins with lids if you want to get rid of e.g. food remains at once. The sea view is lovely and the hotel beach provides warning flags for jellyfish and rough seas. The beach has a sign explaining precautions against jellyfish stings and a vinegar station for first aid. The hotel cares about the guests' safety. Choice in the breafast buffet was somewhat limited as expected in a 3-star hotel but part of the content changed daily. The cost was 70 baht/person when included in the room rate which is excellent value. It is nice that they serve a continental breakfast if you must leave for a tour before the buffet opens or end up sleeping very late. The free WiFi was quite fast (15Mbps/15Mbps). Within a 5 minute walk there are a 24/7 convenience store, a pharmacy, currency exchange booths, independent travel shops, laundy, several restaurants and an Irish pub. However, the hotel restaurant is not unacceptably expensive, either. The balcony has a clothesline and the sink is deep in case you want to do laundry. Read less

We stayed here with our three boys (7,5 and 2) and we had a very relaxing stay!!

We stayed here with our three boys (7,5 and 2) and we had a very relaxing stay!! I am one of these people that read reviews in detail before going to a hotel and I was a liitle bit dubious after reading some of these reviews. Firstly, I think Ibis is fantastic value for money in a great location. It is near to bars and restraunts and a 15 min walk along the beach to the Fishermans Village. The pools are of decent size and towels are provided. We had connecting rooms and it was big enough for the five of us. I do recommend that you use the storage under the beds otherwise it can become a little crowded! The breakfast is good - with plenty of choice for kids and adults and we ate in the Taste restraunt a few time. The Mothers day buffet was lovely. The staff a very friendly and they helped us hire a car for the day to go around the island. I would highly recommend this 3 star hotel if you are travelling on a budget. It has everything you need and a little more!!! Read less
