I really dont Understand those customers who complained about this resort. Beautiful location. Clean and nice room. Cleaning service ok. Clean towels everyday. Very good breakfast. Friendly people at the check in and restaurant...always smiling...they ready to help U if u need. Of course if u think they should bow just because u pay...u ll be disappointed. Quite beach with facilities around (restaurant, thai massage, atm, shops). Private boat from ban phe (free at the check in, 70 bath at the check out). U must go if u need a relaxing spot!

This was my third trip to Thailand in 10 years. It has really changed a lot and developed in to a well oiled tourist industry. This island was ok, just over crowded with tourists. As a result the water, as well as the island, was very dirty. However the water temperature was great. The resort is ok, very basic which what we were looking for. So our expectations were low, and we were not disappointed at all. The service was good and the pool was well maintained. I don't think I will ever travel to Thailand again, it it too developed and expensive.

I've been coming here off and on for 15 years. Last visit 5 years ago. Was a bit apprehensive on this trip because of length of time since last visit, however was not disappointed. There has been quite a bit of development along the beach but not too bad. Vong Deuan is still run by the same family and many of the excellent staff have been there since my first visit. Good for families, safe beach, excellent sand.
Accommodation has gone upon price and obviously all prices have gone up (especially when you're used to getting 70 baht to the £).
All in all would still tecommend

We got a really nice bungalow, nice and clean. The area was fantastic, felt like we were in the middle of a rainforest. Nice and serviceminded staff. The restaurant was excellent and the staff in the Coffeebar really knew how to prepare coffee for swedes... ;) We also felt we had the best part of the beach, not so crowded or narrow. Highly recommended!

The best part of this hotel was its location (though that says more about the island than this specific hotel - the beach was absolutely beautiful). Other than that, we weren't too impressed. The room was just OK. The breakfast was pretty good. The staff that you interact with during check in and check out were pretty unfriendly and certainly did not go out of their way to be helpful. Overall, our stay at Vongdeuan was just ok...next time we will definitely check another place out

We were looking for a great place to chill out in a private room at an affordable price, were we could hang out four days having a nice beach, good Thai food, some Thai massage, nice weather, not very far from Bangkok and away from the extreme touristy areas of Thailand. We found the place.

The house we took (cottage) was 60 euros per night (including breakfast, free hire of beach towels, free transfer to koh Samet, and quiet (barely no noise) and exclusive. The house was separated from other cottages by about 5-10 metres and had Air Con, very nice toilets and shower, a TV, daily room service, two bottles of water/day and was oversll comfortable and very nice. Do not expect a five stars accommodation, but us (experienced backpackers) felt in a very luxury place.

The bay were is located has some small supermarkets (where to buy drinks (alcoholic and refreshments), snacks and other stuff like insect repellent, sunscreen etc), restaurants, four places of Thai Massage, people selling BBQ food, fruits, ice creams and stuff, and other resorts/accommodations.

I'm sure other resorts around may be better, but if you do not want to spend more than 60 euros/night including a good breakfast per double room, and want to feel in a great place, this is the one.

We stayed for 7 nights at this resort. It's an easy journey by taxi from Bangkok airport. It's about 2 hours and cost approx 2300 bht.
Arrived at Ban Phe pier in Rayong and got a speed boat across to Ko Samet which was only about 20mins. Unfortunately no welcome on arrival at Vongdeuan Resort. We had booked the Thai houses and we were very pleased with the accommodation both the size and the cleanliness . However the resort staff were unfriendly and unhelpful which is a real shame as it is a lovely resort.  There are not enough sunbeds at this resort so be prepared to get up early and get your own !! The restaurants in the bay are all much the same but we would highly recommend the Vong Deurn Villa restaurant at the end of the bay. There are a couple of small shops selling convenience items and alcohol and there is an ATM just next to the Malibu garden resort. There are people doing massages on the beach and people selling lovely fruit. Very good banana and chocolate pancakes in the evenings on little stalls ( called Roti). You can walk to the next bays easily but they are much the same. Overall it is a good place to relax and chill out. No night life or loud music, a very quiet resort. A lovely view and a great sandy beach for children with clear warm turquoise water which is excellent for swimming.
