We spent 4 nights at Samet Ville resort. Undoubtedly the nicest beach on the island, few people around as the resort is located a few kilometers away from the main attractions. When we arrived (2 families 8 persons in total) we noted the attitude of the staff was not very friendly nor accommodating, not even offering to help with the... More

We came here to, admittedly, the best beach on Samet back in 2011 and our experience was marred by the terrible service. BUT we came back recently and the resort was great. Food was served quickly, staff were friendly and the rooms were clean. Only downside was our air con broke one night and, for some unknown reason, you can't... More

Me and my girlfriend was the only couple in the resort at the time. It was great to have this lovely beach to ourselves. But as many of the other reviewers said the staff was not too friendly. The rooms were bad. We came back from town one night at 21:00 and i had to leave the rented scooter out... More

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...
