service at this "resort" is near the bottom low mark. It seems they have gone out of their way to find the worst possible and rudest staff. absolutely not open to feedback - when pointing out a rat hovering around the kitchen area, the response was a smile and "oh, its ok..." majority of the crowd staying at this hotel...

The room was pretty much ok, good standard, but the rest, OMG. The staff is not friendly at all, it's all about bath in this place. The breakfast was inedible! But you can not sleep, because the music from their own club, is sooooooo loud and only stops in the morning when it starts to get light!!! Really not a... More

Make no bones about it, this is a basic hotel. It's clean (by the Thai definition of clean), but the rooms are in need of refurbishment. Staff were OK - neither friendly nor rude. They were certainly more friendly/helpful to anybody who at least tried to speak Thai than those who only spoke English or Russian. For the money (THB2100,... More

Booked this hotel over the Christmas period, Koh Samet is an island we like very much. The hotel was very reasonably priced and the location was good, it seems like there have been extra units added and the resort was quite crowded. Our unit, which thankfully was away from the beach, was basic but comfortable, the lack of hot water... More

All I can say is that this is probably the worst service we have ever got. My and my wife made a last minute decision to go to Samed after New Years. There weren't much choices as everything else was booked but I remembered the name Silver Sand from some friends so I decided to call and try our luck.... More

We paid for a bus service at the reception desk, the woman took our money, and that was the last we saw of it. No bus service, money gone. I tried to get the money back but she lied and said she hadn't ever seen me before, and the rest of the staff backed her up. I took my mum... More

The Silvers Sand hotel at Ao Phai beach in Koh Samet is the best place on the Island for partying, starting after 22h. Nice, very mixed crowd. Good energy. The bar is the best place at the hotels. Rooms are ok, basic but clean. Showers are not working very well. Airconditioning is ok. Service is very basic and not really... More

We knew the hotel had a few (or most) negative reviews but had to pick this because of our budget. Totally worth the money as rooms are spacious and clean and its right on the beach AND it has a nightclub!! Don't expect a fancy stay or superb service. In fact the service IS rather slow and they don't seem... More
