Very beautiful resort with huge rooms and great views, in a manicured tropical garden setting. The rooms were somewhat lacking for a 5 star resort in furnishings, but made up for it with the high ceiling features and the balcony which I really enjoyed. TV had a good selection of american channels - history, hbo, discovery etc. I didn't use the spa, but the pools were very nice though the pool bar rarely had someone there to order a drink from. The location isn't great in terms of restaurants or swimming beaches or stuff to do nearby, so it's more of a resort you don't leave much for a few days. We did walk to chaweng area, by just walking along the beach but it wouldn't be convenient to do so more than once a day as it was over 30 minutes to get there so for dinner we were stuck at the resort every night for the few days we stayed (which wasn't so bad.) The pricing at the hotel restaurant and bar were way too high for Thailand and more equivalent to prices at home in San Francisco.
Overall really nice and relaxing resort, and i'm glad we stayed there but not for the whole trip.
Right next to the beach. With a nice small swimming pool which allows to stay fresh while watching what's going on on the beach. Rooms are spacious as well as the balconies. Not in perfect conditions but constantly maintained, from the outside it seems to be one of the best looking hotels of Lamai beach.
Had a couple of nights here, with two friends, and really enjoyed it. Our room was well equipped, comfortable and clean - the bathroom was the star of the show. The staff were attentive and helpful throughout our stay. We had an issue with our safe locking and our room locked us out and staff were on hand really quickly to deal with it.
In low season, plenty of room around the pool areas, and mostly a good drinks service throughout, if a little slow at times.
The hotel has its own beach and is only a short walk from other bars, restaurants, shops and massage centres if you feel the need to go out for anything, though the hotel is very well catered.
The spa is comparatively expensive for treatments (not by normal UK prices, it was still reasonable) but was worth a trip, though we couldn't resist the short walk outside the hotel for a bargain massage!
This hotel was fantastic! It was close to the night life and a very busy strip. We had breakfast included which was delicious. The beach was great and the room was clean! The hotel staff were welcoming and friendly. The food and drinks were a bit pricey and pool was noisy and under shade, so no sunbathing here! In terms of the cost of the room this reasonable but we went in the off season. It is a short drive from the airport with the hotel arranging a cheap transfer.
We stayed at the Mercure last week for 7 nights. From check in to check out we could not fault the whole stay. The staff are extremely friendly and will help with any requests for information. We spent most late afternoons by the pool and the happy hour made that even more enjoyable - Nar in particular really made us feel especially welcome and makes an excellent cocktail! We were sad to leave on Friday and would book again in a heartbeat if we visit Koh Samui in the future.
