“Wonderful time”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

My boy friend found this resort by Trip advisor. For me is second time and feel good same.They were not on top there but when he read review about them & other top ones. We feel to go here & I think We made correct decision. We stay here 4 night. It was so good experience to visit here. not clean much but I can accept it. Staff very very friendly . Food so fresh and very good taste.

Just 2 hours away from Bangkok by car, 15 minutes of speedboat, you just step in a well maintained beach and resort, food is fresh and clean, room are nothing special but by the beach, clean, big enough, nothing pretentious. the magic of Samet at its best at fair prices,
place i love to hang at. Owner, K.Pop always have time to chat with you and will lesson to whatever you have to say, good or bad, Thailand at its best without the tourist attitude. Unpretentious, simple, clean, Life !

We were a group of college students who traveled here in the middle of March, and overall it was a nice stay, but the staff weren't particularly friendly, and since there was only one receptionist, it took about 20 minutes for us just to check in. Being that we're college students, we also found the rooms to be a little overpriced--more simple than what it was worth. However, location was pretty good, being that it was right on the beach, and you could easily reach nearby restaurants, bars, and minimarts.

This resort scores highly for friendly staff, good restaurant and relaxed atmosphere. It is an easy place to hang out. You can use the restaurant just to sit and relax, plenty of sun loungers and deck chairs, the beach is frequently cleaned and the sand is white. Rooms are simple but clean. You are at one end of the bay, so beach pretty private and quiet at nights as away from main bars in the moddle of the bay. An improvement would be free wi-fi everywhere, and a faster system which doesn't slow down with many users. I see come comments about concrete floors, but they are polished and easy to keep clean as unless you are careful you are always bringing some sand in as it is right on the beach. Relaxed with families and child friendly.

Room Tip: The quieter rooms are back from the beach or around the pool.

Stayed at this resort with my young daughter. Great location on beach, with nice beachside restaurant. Minimart nextdoor, which is great when you are a single parent and want to quickly grab supplies. Staff polite and helpful, especially good with my daughter. A plus for this resort is having a swimming pool, which offers a nice change after being on the beach. Rooms are ok, clean and have all basic amenities, although a little overpriced. Restaurant offers some nice food but breakfast buffet is a letdown. Would recommend this hotel for someone looking for a relaxing break.

I read some negative reviews about cleanliness but I had no issues in that regard. Yes the floors are concrete, but the surface is polished smooth and sealed so their is no dust and really no difference between that and a grey ceramic floor tile. The location is great. Right next door to the convenience market 180. (same as 7/11) 60 meters to the beach which in my opinion was quite clean and tidy. I can not comment on the breakfast as I slept thru it each of my 4 days.

Porters were quick to help us off the boat with our luggage and check-in was smooth and speedy. I tried to upgrade to a beach front unit but none available, but really my room was only 15 meters further back so no point anyway.

I ate once at the hotel restaurant and the food was fine. I think some reviewers need to think about over all context of a location before getting too negative. I walked thru all of the properties on this particular beach and they all seemed to be of a similiar caliber and none of them are " 5 star" Right next to this property is another that has a very nice beach front Seafood BBQ every night that was quite good. 2 or 3 massage spots on the beach. Not too crowded but enough going on that you are not completely bored.

I would not hesitate to return.

The rooms were clean and the staff were courteous. The buffet breakfast was OK but it's a bit annoying to see flies around when you are eating--since it was on open space. The milk that was served along with the coffee was spoiled, so i had to take my coffee without milk. Same situation on the next day, luckily there was a separate milk served for cereals so i used that instead. Food served on the restaurant is a bit expensive but there are several restaurants nearby that offer the same food on a cheaper price. Internet connection from our room is really bad. You have to go near their reception area to connect but still too slow.
