4/10 Fair

Overall everything in the hotel is completely inconsistent and mismanaged. I would recommend staying elsewhere. - We didn't like the view from our room. They mentioned they would check everyday if they could change our room. They never did. - No mosquito repellent in the rooms - had to ask for it. Expect bites on the 1st night! - Our mini bar was never re-stocked (we were there for 5 nights). We specifically asked for it to be re-stocked one day and then was never re-stocked post that. Also probably the poorest selection of any mini bar I've ever seen. - We went to the thai restaurant twice. The 2nd time we had terrible service. We had to get our own cutlery, napkins and plates from a nearby draw. No-one checked on us the whole meal. We had to pour our own wine. The wine list is also the worst I've seen with 10 wines on the whole list. Some of them weren't even available. - Room service left empty trays of food outside our room for over 24 hours at a time. The housekeeping left it outside our room attracting bugs. This happened twice. - Booked thai for two massage. The room where you get scrubbed was clearly dirty and smelled. - On our last night they rang my room at 11pm and woke me up! - I told the manager about all of the above and how unpleasant our stay was. He sent me 10k Marriot Bonvoy points as an apology. That is the equivalent of 1/5th of a night stay in the most basic room at the hotel during off peak - we stayed 5 nights in a pool villa. What an absolute joke.

6/10 Good

Travelled with family and stayed in a exclusive pool villa which was very nice. Staff was kind and helpful and especially the staff in-charge of breakfast and pool area were great (Omar/Carl). The resort manager Tanzie was also very humble and helpful in suggesting activities for us as a family. We found our interaction with the reception perhaps the worst. Firstly, the airport transfer never showed up (and I was travelling with a 2 year old), and then the hotel offered to pay for the return transfer - which they never did or offer on the day of checkout. The resort lobby/reception was felt like a boiler room and is very small in comparison to the size of the resort! I have stayed at many Ritz-Carlton hotels around the world and I do believe they are amazing. Koh Samui resort is also great although inconvenient for families as you need a buggy to get around to almost do anything unless you have a villa in the middle (near breakfast/pool and etc). Also, the long staircase/walk to access our villa was a bit of pain.
