I stayed here a few weeks ago for second time, and to be honest, I'll probably stay there again.
It's nicely situated on the end of the cove and away from the bustle of the beach bars, but less that five minutes walk from them.
The room are nice if a little careworn, but the aircon works, they're clean and have a nice feel to them.
My only problem with the place is the breakfast. It's not great, although quite edible. The main issue is that it finishes at 09:30 !
Now, I don't know about other folks, but when I'm only holiday, I like to be able to have a bit of a lie in if I want to, and having to set my alarm clock to be able to make breakfast before the buffet closes is a little annoying to say the least.
Having said that, there are plenty of options for having a leisurely and late morning repast all along the cove so it's really not a huge issue, but I suppose the main thing that annoys is the feeling that the hotel sees then breakfast service as a necessary evil to be just gotten through as quickly and painlessly as possible.
I'd suggest to the hotel management that if this is the case, then give people a room only option with an appropriate rate. At the moment rooms can only be booked on a B and B basis.
Other than that, I love the place. It's reasonably priced, nicely situated, and the staff are nice and friendly if a little linguistically challenged.
If I go to Koh Samet again, I will be booking in here.
