"We've been to Tubtim a number of times (as well as other places on Koh Samet) - starting in the travelling days and staying in their basic fan room and upgrading to now an aircon garden view. There are comparable rooms/huts across Koh Samet for this price if you put the time and effort in to shop around. It's a basic, clean enough hut with a fan and aircon. Curtains were a bit grubby and the fan starting to go rusty and there wasn't the screening under the sink that was in the photos. The garden setting is fine, nothing fancy. Where it is special in our opinion is the beach - it's generally pretty clean as the staff rake it daily, it's a smallish cove and has an intimate feel to it, especially when it's dark and the lanterns are on. The water was reasonably clean (apart from the first day, something about the tide/direction of wind that made me panic about paradise lost) but plastic is ruining the swimming experience. The food was tasty and they offer a good variety, staff always available. The inclusive breakfast was good, and I enjoyed the variety of Thai breakfast on offer as well as the normal toast, jam, fruit and yoghurt. 20 to 30 minute walk to the main drag is not bad really, plenty of places to rest and have a coconut along the way. We would consider coming back here but would shop around as there is good competition. "

"Stayed with my boyfriend. Bed very big, and very comfortable for Thailand! It had a sheet, a blanket and a nice pillow. Big, clean room with a view of the sea through floor to ceiling windows. Aircon worked powerfully and there was a fan option. There was one chair in front of the cottage. Food at the resort was usually very good, but take my advice and don't order a baked potato in the day - only from the evening bbq! Also the cheese isn't real cheese, it is burger style plastic cheese. The service was sometimes painfully slow, which didn't matter too much unless you were eating before going on a trip, but it was a little frustrating. My favourites were seafood green curry and pork bbq stick. The beach was amazing and not too busy. Much, much nicer than the other beaches we saw on the island. It had two snorkelling points that were deserted and peaceful. The resort has home made wooden swings hanging from the trees all over the place, some can fit three people at a time and are a lot of fun. There are hammocks too. There is a nice pool but we didn't go in as people with long hair must wear a swimming cap - and we prefer the sea anyway! The people staying at the resort were mainly families and couples, with a few groups of friends. They were mainly foreign with a few Thai visitors. The roads are extremely bumpy, and the taxis are more like jeeps. Make sure you get in one that has padding on the seat or you will get a sore bum! It costs 450 baht to go one way from the pier on Koh Samet to Ao Wai beach. It costs 400 baht one way to go in a taxi to the popular Diamond Beach from Ao Wai. I recommend taking a private speedboat straight to the resort from Ban Phe pier, because if you take the normal ferry you have to climb over loads of other boats at Koh Samet pier, and sometimes jump some big gaps between boats, though there are boat boys to help you with your bags. Also you don't have to bother with taxis at the other end!"

"I stayed in Koh Samet 30 years ago, too many tourists now in the main beach area, luckily I noticed the Samed Cabana a couple of beaches south on Agoda, much cleaner beach and less congested , big bonus was I could book online as I was inspecting the facilities on the resorts WiFi"

"Hands down the best hotel in Koh Samet. It is brand new and facilities are equal or better to many hotels in Bangkok. Rooms are spacious and neatly designed. Breakfast buffet is good and the restaurant is very good. Cons:- lots of mosquitoes in the room. Staff was not very flexible. We booked five rooms with 9 adults and two kids. Yet the front desk insisted on charging an additional 650 THB per night. Other than these issues, an excellent place to spend a few days here"

"Good, quiet location on Ao Phai beach in Koh Samet. Would definitely return and recommend this resort to other travellers. The downside of the resort had no signal for certain mobile services and the hotel had wifi issues which was a bit of a let down. Other than that we had a great time."

"Samed Grand View Resort is situated on SaiKaew beach, the largest of the beaches on Koh Samet. Here the water is clean and very nice for swimming. As the largest beach on Koh Samet there is plenty of choice when it comes to dining and other attractions. The hotel is nice, bungalows and hotel blocks in a nice garden setting, just off the beach. The hotel restaurant is beautiful with a lovely view of the beach."

"Our first time in Koh Samet. As we booked quite last minute we only managed to book a hillside room which was still lovely. We were right at the top so we actually had a lovely panoramic view of the beach. We had free transportation from the Ban Phe pier straight to the resort which saved us a lot of time and money. Very quite and relaxing area and not overly crowded. The staff at the resort were lovely. We would have liked more activities around the resort as pools closed at 8pm and there wasn’t much left to do in the evening. Other than that, we cannot fault the resort. Highly recommended. "

"If you want a 5 Star resort holiday then Koh Samet isn't the place for you because they don't exist. If you are flexible and can accept a few annoyances than this is a great place. I really liked this hotel. The rooms were comfortable, the food was fine, the beach was clean, staff were friendly and it's close to Wongduen beach which has many more restaurants and entertainment. The hotel is being renovated, but they weren't working the week we were there. There are millions of mosquitoes but this is all over Koh Samet (take repellant). We got a very good deal on the rooms we had so to us it was great value. For what we wanted it was perfect. "

"Close to the beach made it easy to walk up and down to the room between hanging out at the beach and relaxing in the room. Food was good at decent rates, only possible drawback was that the staff sometimes were more busy talking to each other rather then looking after the customers, without it being a huge problem but this was the feeling we had at times. In general they were kind and helpful though so it is nothing I would bring up as a huge negative. Just more of an observation. Other than that the room was big, big bed and a balcony with a sitting group. Only thing they could have added was a sitting group inside the room as it was more than enough room for it. They had a small fridge to keep our drinks cool, a neat bathroom with hot water showers and the standard was very good. Television was pretty up to date and the room was clean. All in all a very decent room for the price. It is a very good place for those who wants to be close to the beach, especially couples and families. They had a bar/disco belonging to the hotel that was very active during the night so if you want to have a couple of drinks during night time the option is there. Fire show and modern pop disco music with an external bar next to it so you could also sit outside if you think the music is too loud. My overall opinion of the place is that it is more suitable for those who want a calm and relaxing stay, with the option of going to a close bar to hang out as well. If I would go back to Koh Samet this would absolutely be an option for me."
