We have just returned from Koh Samet, and staying at saikaew. We were travelling in a group of 4, and after our original accommodation on the island was double booked we decided to stay here as it was close to the beach and an ok price.
However, it was probably the worst room I have ever stayed in.
The lack of cleanliness is inexcusable, there were stains all up the bathroom walls (which were tiled so should have been easy to clean) the shower plug stank of sewage, and the bathroom even flooded, I'm guessing because the drains are so blocked, resulting in sewage water all over the bathroom!!!
The rooms were dark and dingey, and you could hear every footstep of the residents upstairs!
Beds were reasonably comfortable, but found dodgy hairs in the 'clean' sheets!
We ate in the restaurant for breakfast and had a drink one afternoon, the service was terrible, like we were invisible and took ages to take our orders, the food was okay but definitely not worth the wait.
The beach is okay, but we found dirty and smell of sewage with lots of rubbish in the sea.
Our stay resulted in us leaving abruptly as we couldn't stay a day longer!
DO NOT RECCOMMEND!!
