“Best burgers ever? Really? :/”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We went here based on previous reviews saying 'best burgers around', etc. We either went there on an off day, or those people need to eat more burgers. They were OK, please don't go there expecting to get the best burger ever as you will leave very unsatisfied. Great location overlooking the beach, good spot for a quick bite.

“Beautiful beach - poor hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

If you are just visiting for the day: it is absolutely recommended!
Beach is perfect.

If you are on the other hand looking for a few nights to stay and go for basic rooms (so not air-conditioned ones): they are quiet disappointing. Cold atmosphere unpleasant room, fridge beside your ear buzzing while you sleep, no decoration what so ever...

Extra we had construction works in the hotel and outside the hotel, which provided the necessary noise - of course they won't last forever...

But I wouldn't recommend the hotel immediately, there are much nicer places to stay at for same price in same area.

“Silver Beach for lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We decided to try Silver Beach restaurant for lunch after reading about the place on Trip Advisor.

It’s a nice beach with a great view out from the restaurant, but the restaurant itself is run down and shabby, as is the service. We ordered a steak sandwich and a chicken burger and coffees. The food was reasonably priced and good enough, but serves were small, so we ordered another chicken burger and more coffee. The bill came to BT650. In hindsight I’m sorry we didn’t choose somewhere more upmarket. Perhaps the empty tables should have given me a clue.

It's probably worth stopping by for a view of the bay, with the quaint fishing boats in the background, but unfortunately there is now a big pile of rubble partially blocking the view of the beach from our table. They are building next door, and the construction noise was another disturbance in an otherwise serene environment.

“Must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013


Silver Beach is a famous landmark on Koh Samui. The best way to get there is to take a taxi. Bring towel and badtøy and spend the day at one of the most fantasic beaches that exist with shallow crystal clear waters and white powdery sand.
The Restaurant has one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. Recommended!
