We did not stay in one of the bungalows, but in one of the "hotel-rooms" of Eden Garden. So our recommendation deals NOT with the bungalows which might be a better option.
First the location: Eden Bungalow is situated in the centre of Bophut with plenty of restaurants and bars next to it. Since the rooms and bungalows are a located in the backyard, you wont notice the music and noise from the street that much. But if you are looking for a peaceful and setback place to stay, you should look out for something else outside the the fisherman village.
Now the room itself: We paid a 1000 Bath. In comparison to many other places on Koh Samui it seemed to be a normal price for this kind of standard. At the first glance the rooms looked pretty nice (very clean, nicely decorated) with a huge window and big balcony facing the small pool. And we were very happy with our choice... until the guest from our neighbouring room came home in the night. Then we discovered that the rooms are just seperated by some sort of cardbord. We could actually hear every word they were speeking and even hear them sneezing. It felt as if our neighbours and we were staying in the same room. We stayed in many budget and mid-range bungalows/rooms on Samui and other places in Thailand. And we know that the isolation is never that good. But at Eden Bungalow it was worse. This is not acceptable for 1000 Bath (and I guess this was already a special offer due to the lack of tourist on the island). After the second night we left.
In addition to the noise: the staffs behavior towards us was changing like the weather. In short: I did not feel very appreciated as a guest. But I have to say that this was the case in most of the places we stayed at on koh samui and koh pan ngang. Maybe they were all fed up because of the situation, that there are hardly any tourist on the otherwise very busy island.
Just a sentence according to the pool and garden: it looks better on the pictures in the brochures and internet. Very small but very green and relaxing.
