Having visited Tub Tim on several occasions and loved it, I was extremely disappointed by my visit this year.. For instance, instead of having breakfast on the beach it is now served by reception. The hot food is in containers heated by flames underneath. Sometimes these were not turned on and the food was cold. There were flies everywhere and... More

I have stayed here a few times before in an 800bt fan room. That's OK value for money. This time I stayed in a 1500bt room with a/c as no fan room available. Exactly the same room standard but with a/c. Not good value. For 800bt you get what you pay for and for me that's ok. It's not a... More

We were here 6 years ago and decided to come back to this peaceful island. However a lot have happened since then, the property have expanded majorly and so has the island itself compared to hotel business and what goes in that path, which is kind of sad. However Tubtim is still an excellent choice and retreat when going here,... More

I have been to TubTims many times and have just spent two fabulous weeks there. In fact it is strange to read so many negative reviews about it. The staff are nothing but friendly - they are very friendly and easy going, the resort has a range or rooms and prices from very basic to lovely beach front, air conditioned... More

Tubtim resort is at a great location, relatively quiet and peaceful yet walking distance to the more vibrant parts of Koh Samed. The rooms are pretty standard but defintely good value for money. We were somewhat dissappointed by the staff who weren't very friendly or caring. Further there's currently construction going on, which may cause a huge barge to be... More

Tub Tim is an old favourite and a highlight of a Thailand trip. Yes the service is awful by western standards but hey you're on a beach in Thailand. Chill out and order another beer! Room is clean and most of the staff are friendly if less than over effusive with their service. The building work on the beach is... More

Had a three night break at Tubtim while visiting family in Bangkok. Quiet resort with clean wooden beach huts. Only 2.5 hrs by taxi from Bangkok with a short speed boat to ride to resort. Nice food and great location. There was some building work being carried put nearby with used part of the beach at Tubtim for access, little... More

This was my first trip to Thailand and my first to Samed Island. A local Thai friend recommended I stay at this resort so I gave it a try. Arriving at the island was pretty cool as you can only access it by boat, there is no pier so you have to jump off the boat into the water once... More

Great place for relaxing and fun! Great location, very nice and quiet beach, good and clear bungalows, Close to the restaurants and party place. Price and quality for bungalow are good. In restaurants are a lot of seafood and thai food.
