Best feature of Al’s Resort is it’s location, right smack in the centre of everything. All of Samui’s best clubs and bars are within 5 minute walk. Yes, the resort is a little worn out and definitely has seen better days but the beach right up front is amazing, great spot for swimming on a beautiful day with lots of sun-beds laying around reserved for guests to chill in, few steps away you have their beachfront pool area and swim up bar area, offering beautiful views over the ocean that you can enjoy cocktail in hand, a second smaller pool is also available in the courtyard. Restaurant on the other hand was a bit of a disappointment, expensive and below par but there’s literally hundreds of options within easy walking distance. Found the staff to be friendly and welcoming.

I booked their cheapest Courtyard Deluxe category, room was adequate but a little smallish at 25 m², Courtyard Studio might be better suited for those who plan to spend more time in their rooms or need more space. All the basic necessities provided: Air con, mini-bar, electronic safe, tea and coffee making facilities, free drinking water, etc. Few negatives: Bed a bit hard, vintage TV set could do with an upgrade, WiFi signal was patchy and slow. Overall not a bad option, best part of Al’s Resort is it’s location, amazing beach, nice pool area and welcoming and friendly staff, room ok but not for those looking for modern amenities. Have a look below for the pictures I have personally took during my stay of the room and hotel amenities.
