Reading the reviews I was a bit doubtful booking this hotel for a weekend with friends, but I am glad I did. The price was that of a last-minute booking on a long weekend in a peak season (3600 baht including breakfast) but still the second cheapest deal we could find in Ko Samet, with the big plus of being on Ao Phrao beach which is quieter, more beautiful and chilled than Sai Kaeo, yet just a mere 15 mins (and 200 baht) away. Ko Samet is popular with both middle-high class Bangkokians, foreigners and expats, definitely not a backpackers' destination but not too posh either. The rise of Thai baht means everything is 20% more expensive than a year ago but still reasonable by Western standards if you just stay off the snazzy restaurants and design hotels.
Lima Coco and less fancy than the two other resorts on the same beach, but still nice, with a central location on the beach and spotless clean rooms and bathrooms. Towels and beach towels were provided, American breakfast is good with eggs cooked on demand, cereals, French toast, and some Thai soups and stir-fried dishes. The service was discreet but very helpful. On the flip side, some might find the rooms a bit small and a couple of beach chairs were broken. If you are not looking for the fanciest design hotel (and ready to pay for it) but want to enjoy the beauty and privacy of Ao Phrao, this is a good choice.
