We have stayed at Banana FanSea Resort three times before and have always enjoyed our stay. The staff are unbelievably helpful and friendly. They DO NOT stop smiling. We have always found the rooms clean and bright and extremely comfortable, the restaurant is amazing and if you can't find something delicious at breakfast I would be surpised. We have taken eight of our friends there over the past three years, and all of them have returned or are looking to return asap. We have travelled in Europe, USA and Indonesia as well as Australia, BUT Banana FanSea is my most favourite place for a holiday. The beach is exactly the same as a postcard, beautiful warm water and clean white sand.

Room Tip: All rooms but the ones near reception at the front are excellent.

Having not been on a holiday for three years, this trip was was very much earned and looked forward to.
My girlfriend had been to Banana Fan Sea six years ago and said it was great then, and we looked at TripAdvisor and saw that it still had great reviews so booked for 7 nights.
We were not disappointed one little bit. We had the best room in the house, the beach-front villa and it was awesome!!!! Quiet, clean, secluded, air conditioned :) and a 30 step trip to the beach or pool, just absolutely fantastic.
The staff were really amazing!!! Nothing was a problem they were always offering to help, or advice on things, they couldn't do enough and were a credit to the Hotel!! Every single one of them.
The restaurant was great, buffet breakfast set us up for the day. I highly recommend the made for you on the spot omelette, brilliant!!!!
The location is fantastic, in the middle of the main shopping street and far enough wawy from the nightclubs that you aren't kept awake all night but close enough to walk to and stagger back home.
The massages under the pool area in the "cave" were great, and cheap, so had to be done every day!!!!!
I will be coming back next year!!!!!

Stayed here for 3 nights whilst on my own in order to relax in a beautiful location and resort. I was not let down. The rooms are georgeous, pool amazing and bar very nice as well. It is located about 200 a 300m south of the really lively night life area, which means you can have the best of both worlds. Having stayed in the thick of the partying area later in the week, I can also assure that the beach here is much nicer for swimming with very few rocks in the water, great sun beds and consistent service from the bar.

We spent 9 nights at Banana Fan in June/July 2012, our second (and not last!) visit to this resort. The staff are both friendly and efficient, willing to assist when ever called upon. Our rooms ( 2 x 2 adults) were ready on arrival, we had requested specific rooms, which were made available to us. While the beds are hard, we were offered 'pillow-tops' for more comfort, only the pillows are a bit large! Breakfast was good, nothing like watching the ocean with a morning cup of coffee! We eat at the resort a few night, and only have one issue, that was with the guy playing music (not sure that you could call it music though!). We were well looked after by Yot and his team, and highly recommend this resort. Next time we will saty for 2 weeks!

After checking reviews on Trip Advisor, we decided on the Banana Fan Sea Resort for our very first trip to Koh Samui. We stayed for 14 nights, and could have stayed longer, we enjoyed it so much.
The charming General Manager, Supit Choo was at the airport to meet us with 2 staff, and an air conditioned mini bus.
All the staff greeted us on arrivalat the hotel with a cold towel & cold drink, and a very warm welcome. Our checkin was speedy & efficient, and despite our early arrival, our room was ready immediately. We were very grateful for this, as we had been travelling all night.
Our bed was decorated beautifully with flowers, and aslo a welcome basket of fruit.
The rooms are a little dated, but spotlessly clean with lovely fresh white towels. It is one of the few hotels I have stayed at that service your room twice a day.
We were quite close to the fabulous Baitong restaurant, but noise was never an issue. We slept soundly every night, with the air con at a very comfortable temperature.
The Baitong restaurant is fabulous, where a sumptious breakfast is served every moring. You would be a very difficult person to satisfy, if you could find fault in the food.
We have rarely eaten at hotels at which we stay, but this was an exception! The staff, food & cocktails were fantastic, and we spent many a pleasant hour just soaking up the ambience & view from the Baitong Restaurant.
The hotel is handy to all facilities, and Pop the tour organizer at reception was always ready to help with advice & bookings.
ALL the staff at Banana Fan Sea take great pride in their work, and their guests are their first priority at all times.
It was also great to see that the sun lounges weren't "reserved" every morning, as I find this a very selfish act, present at many hotels.
We would love to return to Koh Samui, and would definitley choose Banana Fan Sea again.
Congratulations to all the staff on a job well done! You made our holiday so relaxing and carefree.
