“Very quiet! After the hustle and bustle of Bangkok it is a sleepy little village. The people are very kind, polite and can't help you enough. The beaches are powder white and the sea is warm and clear. It's an extremely relaxing place to be. ”

Rating 8/10 - David H

“Beautiful island (not yet spoilt by tourism) Stayed in Chaweng beach, is great location for beach and night life, only complaint is when walking along main road, deciding where to eat etc you constantly get hassled by people (not Thai nationality) trying to get you to buy suits from their shops.”

Rating 10/10 - Eileen W

“Beautiful island, especially off the tourist trabil”

Rating 9/10 - Emma C

“Very touristy - would not recommend Koh Samui ”

Rating 8/10 - Leigh W

“A little bit smelly in places, but Thailand is generally not the best for sewerage and rubbish! Our connecting car from koh samui airport to take us to the speedboat for koh phagnan didnt turn up, even though we had called them, so we had to sort it ourselves, that wasnt the best start. Also, the santhiya resort was so boring, the bars shut at 11 and because of the rain it was too hard to get anywhere, and they charge you a ridiculous amount if you wanted to. At the end of those 6 nights, we were glad to leave as there's nothing to do and we started to feel like we were in shutter island!!!! ”

“Thailand is a wonderful country, and I would recommend it to anyone. I would say the clarity of the water is much better on the smaller islands such as Koh Tao, or Phi Phi Island, but Koh Samui is still a great place to go.”

“Best holiday ever, wonderful place.”

Rating 3/10 - Leandra E

“I liked Thailand but my stay was marred by the bad weather. We only had 3 days sunshine in the 14 days we were away. The colours of everything are transformed when the sun shines and many of the things we hoped to do like snorkling and diving were not possible because of the "freak" weather. We stayed 2 nights in Bankok at the Sheraton Orchid which we thoroughly enjoyed. It was just a shame that the standard of this hotel was not met when we arrived in Koh Samui.”
