We couldnt find any other hotel with a kids club on Samui and this was our most important criteria. Im used to kids clubs where there are organised activities during the course of the day and the children are engaged. Unfortunately here there was just a little room with a lady watching them - my kids enjoyed it in very small doses. However while we travelled around the island we found hotels with much better beaches and more child friendly and had many more children who just played together without the aid of a kids club. I would not stay at buddy again, its too commercial for our tastes. The room (junior suite) was fantastic though, huge with extra lounge, two tv's and a dvd player and with a baby cot and extra bed there was still more than enough space. There was no place to sit outside in the room - no balcony, if the kids slept we had to sit in the room, too far from pool or beach to leave them. The beach was a HUGE dissapointment, its hardly a beach. The staff were courteous and responded to all queries well, breakfast was fine. I would have much prefered a Thai style hotel. The burger bar, the irish pub, the italian restaurant were all hugely over priced compared to local thai food places and the food was very average. The thai massage at the hotel spa was also brilliant.
