Unfortunately we did not enjoy our time at First Bungalow Beach Resort. The only redeeming factor of our stay was the beautiful pool in the centre of the property. Otherwise, our room was so poorly kept; the taps in the bathroom barely worked and there was mould on the shower curtain, the bed as many have mentioned is rock hard, and even with a mattress topper it was almost impossible to sleep. The wifi just does not work unless you are in the lobby or the restaurant. The breakfast offering and the restaurant are also poor, so much so we didn’t even both going to breakfast on our last day. The staff are extremely rude and do not offer any kind of customer service. The only thing they seem to care about is their mobile phones and the language barrier for basic requests was very tricky. This hotel could be beautiful, but unfortunately it has not been well looked after at all.

Horrible experience

Sorry to say but hotel has absolutely no saver nor security, My safe was opened by someone and mine stolen , substantial amount, I requested safe to replaced and hotel did it. All my attempts to resolve this matter went to nowhere. I left hotel 4 days prior to my stay expirations . Hotel didn’t even make any attempt to investigate such matters. Another issue , sine there are many foreigners staying there , hotel staff don’t speak even basic English which makes it very hard to communicate and resolve any matters. Never again I step to this property

Uncomfortable, bad value

Not as cheap as it should be for how basic it is. I've stayed in all sorts of accomodation in Thailand from very basic budget to 5-star hotels and have had much better for the same price or less. You just need to be aware that this is very basic. The bed is one of the most uncomfortable I've ever slept in. I had a "Deluxe" room, still wondering what was deluxe about it. I can appreciate a firm matress but this was just straight-up bad for your back. I had a really bad sleep due to how uncomfortable I was in every position and it hurt all day the next day. The air con was so ineffective it wasn't worth the noise of having it on. Lights are dim and dull. Your room looks out at where people pass by and has no net curtains so people look straight in to your room. The curtains are so thin I wasn't even convinced people couldn't see through them when i had the light on. You can hear everything around you, every time someone opens their door or speaks anywhere around, the noise seems to be amplified somehow; not that the guests were noisy, just normal sounds are really loud. Wifi was totally useless,i had to find a cafe to just book my next hotel. Due to the time of year the tide was in completely so I couldn't comment on the beach but what I can comment on is when I walked over the grassy area to look at the beach it was COVERED in litter. On the plus side the pool is very nice and the room was very clean.

Lovely!

Another nice stay at the best beach in Koh samui. Although an old resort the pool and the beach is wonderful. Reasonably priced and everything you need Is right there, more and more restaurants popping up here also. Mini marts local so there is no need to go into Chaweng. Walking along the beach is nice and the water is so clean and clear. Keep coming back each year which says something.
