First time in Thailand for Mother & Daughter. We had the 7 night pool villa Scoopon deal with an extra night paid for.

Pros:
- Amazing bar/restaurant staff - especially Mod, Ice & Ray, Pays to be nice to them; we got free drinks on our last night and also hugs when we said good bye. Also the spa girls - Jim & Ni.
- Our room was good - big comfy bed and huge bathroom (nearly as big as the main room) with a good shower and bath. We had a front balcony and also a little backyard with the private pool. Luckily we were so close to the pool (about 30m walk) and then about another 20m to the restaurant.
- Beautiful plants and trees everywhere if you like nature
- also, if you like animals you'll like the resident (stray) cats and dogs - look out for the "brother" black cats with docked tails. Very sweet and friendly
- Great buffet breakfast. I think we only actually had lunch 1 day because we filled up on breakfast. Hot and cold dishes and also Asian dishes and pasta
- The Scoopon deal was amazing value!!!
- good wifi and it worked everywhere
- 2 for 1 happy hour 3 times a day

Cons:
- The front desk staff - they were quite rude and didn't speak English well - go figure for a hotel where most f the guests speak English. Often had to ask them more than once when we wanted something i.e. to book the shuttle.
- the Resort itself is a bit out of the way of the main 'drag'. You can walk into town which is probably about 2km but we didn't as it rained a bit and there were big puddles blocking the road. when we went out we got the shuttle and tended to stay out all day
- the free shuttle ran at weird times but when we did get it it was fine
- the Scoopon deal I bought advertised an 'elephant pool' for the pool villa. for some reason we did not have an elephant pool, rather a smaller, plain looking pool. other villas around us had the elephant pool, though. the pool we had was still great but the photos in the scoopon deal all had the elephant pool in it
- the TV channels SUCKED!!!!

Tips:
- If you're looking at the Scoopon deal book direct with Fairhouse head office - I did and got 5% off the price
- I also asked for a free bottle of wine when I checked in which we received (after asking the reception staff twice for it, but still, free alcohol woo)
- be nice to the staff. as mentioned above, it got us free drinks on our last night
- if you have spare time, walk around the whole resort. there are little paths that lead everywhere and the view from the rooms at the top is amazing!
- you can get down to the private beach and when you do, make sure to walk to both the left and right sides - there's plenty of beach and restaurants and other accommodation along there. it's a really nice walk. we went to 'Treehouse' restaurant to the left of FH for dinner and it had 100B cocktails and meals for around 150B. We had 3 x meals, rice, 2 cocktails and a beer and it cost about $13AUD each . Much cheaper than the resort, which is a bit overpriced. Shame we only discovered it on our last night or we definitely would have walked down a few times
- stock up at breakfast - it lasted us til dinner. we took some pastries with us away from breakfast for a snack later in the day too
- If the weather is good, walk along the path that leads into town. We would have done it if not for the rain
- If you get a taxi to Chaweng beach (main part of the island) don't pay more than 400B (about $15AUD). The taxi drivers will try to charge you more but say you're not paying any more than that and they'll accept
- if you have the Scoopon deal for daily massages the vouchers you get say it has to be used between 5-7pm (it didn't say this on the actual deal but anyway) and you have to go with whoever is in your group at the same time so that's really not enough time to get one every day. however, ask the girls to pencil you in at a different time and they'll accommodate you. We went at about 9, 930ish most mornings and they were fine with it

Judging by some of the other reviews, maybe we were just lucky with our stay but overall we had a great time and would recommend. If you have any questions let me know :)

This is a beautiful hotel with stunning views but it is let down by the staff.

We arrived to check and were greeted by a trainee who asked me to sign something with an amount of money written on it but couldn’t tell me what she was asking me to sign. I asked what it was for and she just smiled and pointed. We then had to wait over half an hour for our luggage to be brought to our room as no one was available to drive the golf buggy- our room was up a very steep hill otherwise we would have just taken it ourselves. Not a great start to our holiday after a 16 hour trip.

The rooms itself is very dated, very dark and the bathroom is falling apart. There is not enough storage in the room- no drawers, just a wardrobe with 7 hangers for a 2 week stay!

If you want two room keys you have to pay a 300THB deposit, which we did. However at check out, the receptionist took both keys and then refused to give us our deposit back because we didn’t have a receipt. We hadn’t been given a receipt, but the only way to possibly have 2 keys is to pay the deposit- as i found out from our friends who were also staying here, therefore she would know we must have paid the deposit. This was an argument we had to have whilst our taxi was waiting to take us to the airport.

The food was lovely but the restaurant staff were so slow.

There’s not enough sunbeds by the pool, even though there is plenty of space for more to be added. If you get to the pool after 08:30 you’re not getting a sunbed!

Overall it was not the service you expect from a 4 star hotel and it was not worth the money we paid. We had a lot of conversations with other guests around the pool who had stayed before who said the standards have slipped and this hotel has really lost its way.

Staff incompetent and useless and incapable of speaking English (especially at the reception!!), rooms pretty but dirty, dinner ok but totally overpriced, breakfast fantastic, basically no beach and littered, pool area and bar nice, WiFi bad, garden fantastic. Didn’t try out the spa. Wasted enough money here anyway.
Cannot recommend it. You get waaaaaaay better hotels for that price. I was happy to leave again and I’m definitely not coming back!

We purchased a 5 night stay in a pool villa through Scoopon.
I emailed the hotel sales and reservations, including my deal number to organise our pick up from the airport.
I was told this would cost 600 baht to the hotel driver on arrival.
I paid the driver in front of the 2 disinterested, disorganised and unwelcoming staff.
After a long flight the French receptionist pointed out that we were due to pay a room surcharge for the holiday period
"You Pay NOW!"
Yes, we were expecting to pay this when settling our final bill, no problem.
Although we were the only people in reception, it took more than half an hour for us to be shown to our room after 8.45pm.
Driver quickly disappeared
Having double checked our voucher, we then realise the cost of transport is included.
The French woman who showed us to our room, and had to lift our bags on to the golf buggy swore at us or the suitcases, we weren't sure but i guess she assumed we don't understand French. But we're au fait with that.
Contacting managers / sales / desk staff about a refund or deduction for hotel transport fee was futile.
Even though Sales manager admitted in email the mistake the desk staff & managers denied and evaded the refund.
On our final day they told us "they had lost the red book" had no record of our pick up, and had lost the email from reservations, also then trying to say it wasn't their driver in their Fairhouse Villas minibus.
The room was very clean with a wonderful king size bed & air conditioning.
Outside; beach / pool environment and breakfast all very nice.
The housekeeping, garden and restaurant staff were lovely.
We also enjoyed the daily massages included in our voucher, the girls were happy to fit us in any time.
Our private spa seemed to have some sort of power glitch, so we asked for help to get it started twice.
Two spas in five days.
I agree with another reviewer that the dinner menu for voucher users was very limited, totally inferior to the regular menu & contained virtually no meat mentioned ,and way too spicy. We both love Thai food, but I struggled to eat this watery over-spiced stew.
We took the shuttle bus into town, stuffed with other guests who thought is was OK to break wind in a closed minibus containing 13 people,
We asked the shuttle driver to pick us up in the evening, waited an hour for him and landed up taking a local taxi home.
I'd put that one down to 'lost in translation', or at least we didn't understand the 3 excuses for his absence.
The town is far away from the hotel, and the shuttle bus only runs 3 times a day.
We made the most of our stay and enjoyed the beautiful beach and pool.
On our last day we decided to sort out the bill & refund after breakfast.
Desk staff refused to give my husband a print out of our bill, and every member of staff seemed to have experienced amnesia about our refund.
There were 7 desk staff hiding behind each other. It was practically a pantomime but profoundly pointless
" I can still see you ! "
They also marched the managers down to our Villa, without any bill to argue our issues with the quality of their service.
Worse still they sent staff down to our Villa at 11.10 am when we had late check out, including two girls who walked up and down watching us from outside the fence, no private spa time for us.
I experienced a huge sense of relief leaving this toxic hotel, and thankfully moving to a very friendly place in Lamai.
We were given transport to Lamai, as we would not be using the airport return from the Villas, we did appreciate this.
I am still waiting for a resolution, or a reply from the sales and reservations manager of Fairhouse Villas exactly 1 month later.
We appreciate that Scoopon Australia refunded us for the Villa's overcharge. It is an expensive place ( an extra $100 p.n. for high season) . It is a beautiful well maintained property in a remote location - the main street is 1+ km away with only a few shops.
The complimentary confusion, frustration and the faffing around is not the kind of holiday fun to die laughing for.
We wouldn't stay here again.

I spent a nice week in this beautiful place. The breakfast was very nice! I ate one time in the restaurant, I really appreciated my food but I think that it was a little bit expensive.We had the sunset suite in the mountain and the view is just amazing !
And to summarize, the staff was perfect, very kind, in the restaurant but also in front office ! Thank you to the french girl, she was helpful and so adorable.
I hope to come back soon
