Great location, with a quiet beach and only minutes walk from nearby beaches with more restaurants. Some of the hillside rooms have a sea view and are a very good value for money. Don't pay more than 50 baht for a slow boat and 300 for a speed boat on the way to the island! From the pier, you can... More

First of all: the price, location and quality is More like 3/5, but the staff, especially the manager (a plus size guy with round glasses) is absolutely superb, so that pushes it up to a 4/5. We where here during New Year's Eve so the prices was higher than usual. Actually half of the expenses towards the stay was the... More

This hotel has a great position on a quiet beautiful beach and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. I do however, agree with other reviewers that the service is definitely under average. The staff seemed reluctant to help and were inflexible, especially at the front desk and at breakfast. This place could be so much better if the management could... More

Myself, my partner and family and friends came to stay at the hotel during a week in November and although this was one of the stops we were most eager to visit, I couldn't help leaving slightly disappointed. The location of the hotel is fantastic (if you are looking for somewhere to relax this is ideal) as there is a... More

Arrived here by speed boat and everything looked great. We were allocated a villa which was really dated, old, dark, curtains were hanging off, and plagued by mosquitoes, which ate everyone alive. The door of the villa looked like someone had tried to break into it, but they need not have bothered, because they could have just walked through the... More

Ao Cho is in the most stunning location. Just spent 3 nights here in a beach villa, the location is superb minutes from the water on a really quite and undisturbed beach. Lovely big air conditioned rooms. The staff are helpful and friendly but there are so many small things wrong, staff seem to do jobs half heartedly, glasses left... More

We (me, my wife and our two daughters) stayed three nights at Ao Cho Grandview Hideaway Resort during the 3rd week of October. We decided upon Ko Samet and Ao Cho after doing extensive search on the net, including on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed! Having arrived at the coastal harbour of Ban Phe after the departure of the last... More

So I visited this place for a week, with my other half and another couple. We flew wit EVA airlines from Heathrow into Bangkok and the journey was then extended by another 3 hours by a taxi journey to the South coast. We booked our taxi in advance so there was no messing around at the airport and the price... More

This hotel could be so good if managed correctly. We arrived by speedboat to a beautiful private cove and were escorted to the reception where we checked in. We were informed that electrictiy wouldn't be available for a few hours. Ok no problem we'll go to our room and get ready to hit the beach. The rooms were clean but... More

We initially booked for a few nights but ended up staying for a week because this is such a great beach, there really is no better spot on the island to move to. White sand, clear sea, beach almost to ourselves every day (even weekend) and a busier beach right next door (5 minute walk if that) with more bars... More
