Very, very nice beach and many, many families with small children which may put off a lot of people but was perfect for us travelling with a toddler. Breakfast buffet was not bad. Staff was great with our toddler even though he was about as mischievous as you could get, into everything. Reasonably clean room. Then there is the rest....... More

When we arrived we were shown to our cottage by a helpful member of staff. We found it to be pleasent & reasonably clean, however there were quite a lot of bugs & mosquitos around (which is to be expected on a tropical island!) So make sure you bring bug spray as you will definately need it on koh samet!... More

Cottage room is nice, private and calm. Breakfast could be better. Vongdeuan beach is wonderful. Water is clear and clean. We had a great time there and we will definitely stay in this hotel in the future :) Also this hotel provides shuttle boat, quite convenient.

What makes Vongdeuan Resort a good choice for visitors to Ko Samet is its location. This curve of beach is one of the most attractive on the island, with enough white, powdery sand at lower tides to enable one to sun on the sands, without the throngs of international tourists who swell the larger beaches further north, towards the main...

Stayed for three days between Christmas and New Year. Thai houses are OK inside, but ours was located right next to the reception and restaurant and it was very noisy and not private at all, though this is something that we had requested in particular. The entire resort is run down and currently one huge construction site. The beach is... More

Undergoing a huge construction with a two storie building growung up, this bungalow sute is not worth paying to stay on. The management are trying to put all new guests in a thaihouse with the temporary kitchen outside with urinoir and garbage just 50cm/3 inch to the front door of the thaihouse. The eating area is dirty and chabby. I... More

I spend one week holiday at Vongdeuan Resort with my daughter and friend's family. The resort is right beside the beach like other resorts in Koh Samet. The place is nothing special and pretty simple. The staff was not very friendly, to my surprise after visiting Thailand so many times. They did not have enough beach chair and some days... More

Upon arriving to the Island after travelling on the old dingy boat, the boat stopped about 10m from the shore and we were all required to walk in the water (only though height) to the land. A park ranger charged us 300baht (nowhere mentioned by hotel office staff on mainland) for "recreational park fees" while we watched our luggage get... More

We visited the Vongdeuan resort a couple of years ago and found it to be in need of some TLC. We did enjoy the resort and the bay, so when it came to another holiday in Thailand we decided to give the VDR another try, we stayed in a cottage, which was very nice, well presented and maintained to a...

First impression wasn't that good. Pool isn't what we expect it to be, bacause between two construction, and the front office service not so polite but that's usual for tourist places like this. Also we came from bangkok where we had 4star hotel with good value and paid 10€ less per night but you really can't compare. And the bed... More
