Having stayed here last year, we were looking forward to another visit. Lovely room overlooking the seafront. Room maid was very good. However the beach restaurant and bar close at 9 pm, with no warning given. With one exception the staff in that area were totally disinterested in the guests, preferring to chat amongst themselves even when people were at... More

Beautiful spot great location. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Food in restaurant not all that slow service. Would definitely go back and stay here. Beach clean and safe to swim. Taxi from port cost 250 can walk around rocks to different beach.

I was very much looking forward to a short relaxing stay at a picturesque spot but that was ruined as soon as I first entered my room. Despite booking the room over 2 months previously for around $100 AUD a night (which should give you decent accommodation in Thailand), the Hotel clearly didn't plan for my arrival. The first thing... More

The hotel is very well built, maintained and managed. The staff is courteous and helpful. The location is quite good but not the best. However, it is much quieter and relaxing that the better beaches. Koh Samet has probably some of the best beaches in Thailand, with powdery white sand and emerald and aquamarine waters, which unfortunately over time have... More

Stayed for a week with a friend, had a great time and glad we chose this hotel and resort. We were worried about getting to and from the island but was very easy. Taxi to ban phe was 2k baht and took 3hrs, booked on ferry very easily, and taxi on the island was cheap and easy. Coming back we... More

If you go to Koh Samet, it's good to know that the island is not so small and easily movable place you may expect. The beaches are separated by forests and seem to have very different profiles. The road is narrow, so it doesn't make sense to walk around the island. Our impression was that Ao Cho is very nice... More

Great location, with a quiet beach and only minutes walk from nearby beaches with more restaurants. Some of the hillside rooms have a sea view and are a very good value for money. Don't pay more than 50 baht for a slow boat and 300 for a speed boat on the way to the island! From the pier, you can... More

This hotel has a great position on a quiet beautiful beach and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. I do however, agree with other reviewers that the service is definitely under average. The staff seemed reluctant to help and were inflexible, especially at the front desk and at breakfast. This place could be so much better if the management could... More
