I agree with all of the above reviews - I wish I had checked Trip Advisor before booking here. The descriptions above about the room quality are all correct but I want to add more comments about the place.

We have stayed on Samed more than 6 times in the past and we always enjoyed it, but this place really spoils the reputation of the island. The staff hassled us to check out exactly at 12.00, coming to our room in the morning with the bill and standing outside our door waiting for us to confirm we were checking out. Not only that, but they also forced my family to give up their chairs on the beach by kicking on the chairs,taking them away and folding them up. Instead of enjoying our last afternoon on the beach after checking out (which is normal at other resorts), we were absolutely furious, and left early. I have never been treated this way at ANY hotel, especially not in Thailand. This is not Thai behaviour. If the resort was full I would understand if they could politely ask us to check out on time, but they were not full at all.

The breakfast which was included in the price was also terrible - we only tried it once. They have only 2 choices, and when we ordered, they actually forgot two of our orders (out of four). The staff were 'busy" watching TV (there was only one other table occupied, so they had no excuse to forget our order). The "american breakfast" was made using the cheapest, crappiest ingredients you could imagine. We did not even wait for our missing food to arrive, but went somewhere else for a proper breakfast.

I would not complain if the resort was really cheap but in fact it was not - at high season it is Baht 4,000 for a family bungalow. Its not suitable for small kids however because its on 2 floors and the stairs have no rails so its really dangerous.

Totally bad hotel, I hope they go out of business soon so that some nice, professional people renovate and occupy this part of the beach. I suggest you stay somewhere else and just visit this section of the beach.

To help you with some positive information - I recommend that you stay at Samed Villa Resort (but book early) and eat at Jep's Bungalows, which has really great food on the beach.

Enjoy Samed, just dont stay here..!

Worst hotel we have ever stayed in. A rat came into the room under the door and so did a large cockroach.
You have no cupboards or wardrobes so you have to live out of your suitcase.
The hotel has some sort of scam with the room safe key. 500Thb but they want another 500 Thb to open the safe if you lose the key?
Staff are not friendly or helpful, breakfast is poor quality.
Only the location is good.
Would never stay here again

Stayed for a week in january. Had booked Sky Deluxe but the room was so small that we changed to a bungalow. The room was not very clean, the bathroom was actually really dirty, and the cleaning during the week let a lot to be desired. You could hear everything your neighbours said and did so if privacy is important to you, this is not your kind of place. Overall the staff was very unfriendly, we always said good morning etc but only once in a while we got a response. Breakfast was not very good, the same egg, two sausages, and two slices of toast everyday. Juice was not am option, it was extra. The location was great, 10 seconds to the beach, with free chairs for hotel guests. For 2800 bahts a night I was not happy, there are better places around.

We paid 3500baht for 2 bed bungalow, which was spacious, with good air con. Location was 5 secs from beach, stunning beach, bit busy but lovely. Bathroom smelled sometimes, could hear neighbours, could hear club until 12pm every night. Beds very comfy, safe could not be used. Samed on the whole quite cheap still. Spent £300 for the week on spends, for 4 of us, food fab. Got speedboat from Ban Phe 3000baht return, journey took 15 mins. All in all, not bad, did check some other bungalows out, but very small. Didn't prebook, just arrived.
Breakfast AWFUL! Eggs and toast with a bit of fruit.

I wish I would of checked trip advisor before booking here for 2 nights! 2,000 baht per night, had to check out after the first night. No where to hang your clothes so the top of the fridge became the wardrobe, the safe was impossible to work, bathroom was disgusting,could hear your neighbours tv and other familiar noises. Maybe if the cost per night was 600-700 baht you could and probably would accept the rooms but certainly not worth the 2000. Thankfully got a room for the second night at Samet villa's (2,200 baht) absolute 5 star and worth every penny. As I said what a shame the place as great location but does not deliver. Samet villa's for me every trip now.
