Chaweng Cove Resotel Koh Samui Reviews
No Sleep Dec 30, 2010
We arrived on a rainy day where the streets were flooding, and so was the walkways of the hotel. We were directed to our room, which was a main floor room in the hotel right beside the staff room.
The hotel was situated on the main street and backed on to Chaweng beach. It had a great pool area and a nice dining area overlooking the beach. There were bungalows which looked very nice, unfortunately we were put in a crappy room due to being over capacity - despite there being a bunch of bungalows empty the entire duration of our stay.
We had a patio with a wall in front of it. So absolutely no view. Our bathroom was a horrible layout with the toilet in the shower. We were right between the staff room and a staff work shop. So 5am the staff were yelling from the staff room and the workshop was hammering away on whatever they were working on. No sleep and no sympathy from the hotel when we asked to move. On top of this the neighboring rooms were slamming doors at all hours of the night. We went without sleeping for 3 days. I took naps in the day since it was the only time there was some quiet.
I would not stay here again specifically because of the room we stayed in and lack of sleep that resulted from it. The lack of effort to resolve that problem for us just shows what we came to expect and consider common of Thai people, absolutely no concern other than getting as much money from us as possible.
