I was there in October 2019 with my sister. Property itself is nice, quiet and easy to be reached. Hotel in located on Koh Samui main road in Lamai area. The outdoor car park is enough for hotel guest but not convenience when raining bellman not really helpful. Front office , Housekeeper and especially F&B are really provided great service. They so attentive, Polite and welcome you with a real smile everyday. Even new staff was tried his best to provide hotel information and didn't hesitate to help me upon check in. Villa is nice and clean. It is big enough for 2 person stay. i love the fluffy bed and pillows. unfortunately it was rain during my 2 days stay so i did not experience beach area. There's lots of mosquito at evening time. I do understand this because you can easily find it in tropical country especially when room is surrounding with plants and trees. So no complaint about this but just "DO NOT LEAVE DOOR OPEN" Bathroom is very big and functional. Aircon is great. Lighting is dim and not much day light. Wifi is not stable and low signal, you'd better use mobile signal. Overall, It was a nice stay and i may return to this property again in Summer time. Read less

While in general we enjoyed our stay here, I was disappointed with this hotel not being to the standard expected. Our room was upgraded to a plunge pool suite which has a spa pool. While that was appreciated, the room itself though nice was very dark which was a bit depressing after a while. The spa / toilet /shower areas are open and were over run with mosquitoes. We ended up buying and using 2 tins of mosquito spray during our stay just to deal with them and were still badly bitten . It was not pleasant. The dining facilities are limited with really just one restaurant Latest Recipe. During an 9 day stay the limited choice certainly pushes you towards looking to dine out. Breakfast was OK and the a la carte was good. That said we enjoyed dining at Latest Recipe and the Ocean Pier and Plunge Bar were good. We thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas BBQ. One saving grace is that in typical Thai style the staff service all round was excellent. Staff are very well trained and anticipate your needs. You really couldn't fault them during our stay.

The hotel is nice but nothing memorable, rooms have an original layout, clean and spacious bathroom but lack of natural light and privacy (and only the Villas have ocean views).

The hotel is nice but nothing memorable, rooms have an original layout, clean and spacious bathroom but lack of natural light and privacy (and only the Villas have ocean views). Has several pools, it's a very relaxing and quiet hotel. However the staff could be more polite and make guest feel more welcome, I've got a couple rude answers from them for no reason. Food is average, breakfast was mediocre, nothing special or memorable, it feels like they are not trying very hard (No mango or Thai dishes). Bonvoy should reconsider lowering the Category of this hotel, it shouldn't be considered a Category 5. Overall and comparing with other hotels from Marriott and other's Le Meridien I have stayed before, I was expecting a better and more luxurious experience, I wouldn't go back. Read less

All the staff, regardless of position in this hotel, are very friendly and welcoming all the time. They deserve credit for 1) happy in their jobs , 2) always professional & take pride to make guests feel so happy. We had beautiful weather & sun shining into our pool villa. This resort is an intimate one, more of a couples retreat type with tranquility and relaxation. Small resort with a personal touch. Villas & suites are done with care & designed by owners’ preference, thus the “old paint look”. Even the evening Celebration @ 7+pm has a storyline (Stairs to Heaven). Make a wish before you swish the coconut away...... As I’m prone to mosquito bites, i can bring a natural or a deet spray along. Single hour massage type are mid-priced & packages range to over US$100, depending on your preference & time. The rooms are clean & therapists are trained. Enjoy your drinks &/or dinner at pier bar is a must. It was breezy & cool this time. Even at Latest Recipe, it was very cool. Housekeeping does it’s best to clean up villas daily. There are many beautiful frangipani trees & plants all around the resort. Read less
