This place could be excellent. It has the location and the peace that you come to Samet for but the facilities let it down. The whole place needs a good wash, especially the bathrooms. Oh god, especially the bathrooms. The food was all right - nothing special. Breakfast was a disappointment. It wouldn't take a lot to clear the ants... More

We booked a "private cottage" - it was a bit of a walk from main area, but a walk was lovely and nice. So, if you choose "private" - it will be away from all the crowd, so the title makes sense. The room was spacious and I loved the bathroom - big and interesting interior ideas. AC worked. It's... More

Me and my mum had booked online to stay here for 6 nights, but left after only one night, even though we lost the money for the 5 following nights. The ambience of the place can be summarised with: ´the resort that God forgot´ The place is supposed to be a 3-star place. The bungalows are basic concrete, spread out... More

Ok so after reading a bunch of negative reviews let me just point out a few things. First of all yes there are good and bad things about this hotel. I paid $60 CDN for a little cottage and got a free breakfast everyday. Yes my room was small. Yes it was far from the main area of the resort.... More

We have been coming to Thailand for over 15 years staying in accommodation ranging from cheap back packers/bungalows to 5* resorts. The Samet Ville Resort though has to be the worst experience we have ever had. We were initially given a sub-standard room which was far removed from the photos online when we booked it. Having complained we were given... More

I really do not like writing negative reviews, but I feel it is my duty to warn others to think twice before booking a room here. I made the mistake as others have done before me of booking this Samet Ville resort instead of the Samet Villa resort. Could this slight change in spelling be intentional? Even the taxi driver...

The beach at Ao Wai is amazing. Samet Ville is only resort on this beach, so you have no choice. There are many different types of bungalows, we had standard with air con. Rooms are very tired, electric wires hanging off, curtains old, beds old, bathrooms very basic and dirty, worn. Restaurant for lunch is OK and good menu, dinner... More

I'll start with the positives: They've made a good job of blending the resort in with its surroundings - the numerous beach huts and cottages nestle into the trees and undergrowth around the bay and become almost invisible. The staff were, on the whole, friendly and helpful, making a lot of effort to speak English when my pitiful Thai dried... More

I made a big big mistake - wanted to book samet villa resort (near silver sand beach) but booked samet ville. Only one letter difference can destroy all your vacation !!! Please be care!!! I can't call this place - resort. It seems like a ghost village - nobody cares about trees, trails, houses, beach (((( room was unreal smelly... More
