I've stayed in this resort for 3 nights, and i can only say great things about it. The bungalow we got was clean with a very nice bathroom. The employees were good in english and were very friendly. The food in the restaurant was also good. A resort that has a private beach with a family friendly atmosphere and great... More

I didn't actually stay here so I can't comment on the accommodation, but the food was great. I had a spicy tuna salad with mixed fruit smoothie and both were excellent. The restaurant is on the beach in a relatively secluded spot on Ao Cho, so is also a peaceful, and relatively cheap, place to eat.

We stayed here last week. On arrival we were shown to our room, we were dissapointed with it, we spent one night in it & then asked to be moved as light fittings in the room didn't work, there were no bedside tables, lampshades were stained & dirty & the mosquito net was yellowed with large holes in it, subsequently...

We arrived by speedboat to a great looking hotel just to find out we were dropped off at the wrong location. We then were taxied to our correct resort and upon driving in the sketchy looking place to our surprise and gratitude as we walked in closer to the lobby and water side it was a great place to stay....

I've just just arrived back after spending 6 nights with my husband at this fantastic resort. I read many reviews before we left and was prepared to be possibly disappointed. We were so happy with everything. Our garden view room looked straight out to the sea. It was clean and we were more than happy with the standard. It contained... More

The resort is small and located within a small bay on the island, which makes it feel much more secluded and private. We paid for a garden view room, but actually faced the sea (room A1), which was a nice surprise. The rooms themselves all have the usual items you would expect, including wifi and are well kept and very... More

Arriving by speedboat, the hotel looked idylic and the setting was superb. The hut we had was 20 metres from the beach and we often had breakfast on the beach. For £50 a night, this was superb value. The room was a good size but needed a lick of paint. They were building some new huts which looked quality but... More

We loved this place! We will definitely be back! We loved the restaurant (Maybe the best burger I've had in Thailand!). My wife loved the massages. We both enjoyed kayaking as well. They have plenty of beach chairs and umbrellas but we went in low season (September) so that may play a part. Ao Cho is a great beach that... More

I stayed 3 nights over the Queen's birthday weekend and was able to totally relax. It's a bit isolated from all the action, which protects the peaceful atmosphere, but the busier beaches are a short walk away. The staff were all very kind and helpful to me. The manager, in particular, greeted me every morning and provided a quick Thai... More

Stayed some nights at Samed in July 14 and ended up at Ao Cho Grandview. Good location at a smaller beach but 3 min walk to Vangduern. Beach is small but very nice, Limited numbers of restaurants but okay. Stayed in Hillside bungalow which in fact have sea view - great. Room very clean and nice. Good breakfast buffet, standard...
