Wow wow wow! What a stay. First time to Thailand, Koh Samui, and we were more than impressed. Crystal Bay Yacht Club (yet to find out why it's named this; there's no yachts!) was amazing. The main thing that stood out to us was first the cleanliness, and second the comfort. The bed was something else, it was absolutely huge...

Very good lunch there but small manu with not much meals. Service're trying to do all the best. I think only toilets wasn't good. But very good Patthai and Tom Yum. I think add meals and all will be ok. They have goos idea to show the wifi password. You can find password on the box with napkins.

I am sorry for your bad experience at the restaurant but glad you enjoyed the resort. The restaurant is a seperate business from the resort and has a seperate tripadvisor page. Would you consider changing your review to be just about the resort and reviewing the restaurant seperately?

Perfect location to spend days in the sun Beautiful scenery and set up Wish I could have stayed longer. Try to get in early for a cabana, makes staying by the beach all day a lot better The room was modern and spacious.

Really beautiful beach and a perfect pool for the kids to play around in. The view from the beach front bungalows was great. Good and varied food in the restaurant, but the service was really slow sometimes. We enjoyed the stay at Crystal Bay.
