Reviewed 5 October 2012

Booked this hotel from Tripadvisor reviews.
Arrived @ Samui airport and was greeted by BFS Driver (we were 20 minutes late) with a warm welcome. 10 minute drive to BFS and upon arrival we were welcomed by Yot (Sawadee Yot) who check us in. He gave us a chilled towel and cold drink (much welcomed). Check-in was fast and we were shown to our rooms. Opened the door and first that hit us was the how cool the room was. A/C lived up to the job,
The rest of our holiday just fell into place. BFS KNOW how to look after their guests. Their employees are a credit to the manager (Stupit). For example I left my Ipad out on the balcony and housekeeping picked it up and put it back in our room. TOTAL TRUST.....
Eating @ BFS.. Their menu caters for Western and Thai tastes. The food is presented outstandingly... With Thai smiles :)
Got to mention Edgar... His James Brown impression is so soulful... Maybe see you @ Manila Soul night in Philippines one day.. Take care my friend.
The beach is the cleanest on the Chaweng stretch. Sun loungers not a problem.. Enough for everybody. Also their pool attendants Ko & Yut can't do enough to make your day perfect. Hats off to these guys. They work very hard.
To sum up Banana Fan Sea..... Book this hotel, best on Samui... you WILL be made most welcome here... โรงแรมที่ดีที่สุดที่เคย

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!
