We had a very good experience with this hotel If you're going to stay here- do point out anything in the amenities that you feel is damaged as to avoid charges later. The hotel was very clean and well maintained but the drying rack wouldn't support weight and was close to falling. The hotel fixed it right away. There wasn't a lot of space to move around the bed, so if you plan on spending a lot of time in your room- go bigger. We only planned to use it for getting clean and resting but it met our needs. The room had a mosquito net which provided mental comfort even though our room was bug free. The storage area being in the bathroom was smart, no carrying stuff here and there, no tripping over it in the room. The breakfast was HUGE and fresh. We had our choice of a wide variety of foods in a spread and they were brought out timely and replenished often. It was buffet style, we could go to town on whatever we wanted. We ate a few meals at the hotel otherwise and they were pretty good too. A little on the expensive side but convenient if you want to eat by the pool. Spend a night eating on the shore at one of the little fabric tables, cheap and romantic. The pool was very clean and the grounds in general were well kept. This hotel is NOT right on the beach, which was not a problem for us- but may be to someone who wants to lay on the sand for a day. You have to pay to lay on a chair offered by the beachfront hotels it's not much but might bother a family that has to pay per person. We just swam and sat on the sand and we were fine. The rooms can get a little maze like so remember where you're headed if you plan on spending a night drinking. There were many families and couples staying at the resort which was perfect for us, because up the beach a ways closer to the main downtown area can seem a little sketchy and people behave a little like a drunk college crowd- unless that's what you want. If you want to book a motorbike for the day do it through the hotel, the ones in the area are a total rip-off. The lady closest to the hotel, despite a giant sign that says "400 baht a day" will try to tell you it's per hour if she can fool you. We went to Koh Samet on a Monday and stayed for the beginning of the week so there weren't a lot of people but as we got closer to the weekend, at times there were speedboats arriving every 20 minutes. This didn't bother us but if you take a bike to a different beach further down the coast you'll find it's more secluded with a huge area for swimming.
