            Great hotel right on the best beach”

            convenient location, welcoming staff, good breakfast

            The Jirawan is a no frills hotel right on Sai Kaew beach. The rooms are simple, but adequate, and overall the hotel was surprisingly quiet. The breakfast is pretty good and you can choose made-to-order items right off the regular menu. The restaurant is directly in front to the hotel and lunch and dinner there is very good. Meals are especially enjoyable sitting right on the beach in the evenings. The location is very convenient, being situated right on the beach, yet only about a 5-minute walk into town, where there are other restaurants and shops. I would highly recommend the Jirawan to the budget-conscious traveller.

            Very nice budget hotel Kho samet is wonderful and the hotel is on a beautiful beach. I am an Aussie living in Thailand with a Thai wife, we both love Kho Samet. Still a great class of people both Thai and farang go there unlike Kho Samui but still the fun pubs etc with out the hassle or drunks. Don't wait GO NOW as I am sure Kho Samet will change to a Kho Samui in the future. PARADISE!!!!!

            Jirawan is right on the lively beach and also close to street with shops and 7/11. First I only booked one night because of the reviews which said the rooms were not clean. But fortunately the room was clean. The room is spacious but basic, but you're on the beach and you have all you need. Ofcourse I booked a few nights extra at Jirawan.

            right on the beach

            the hotel is a walking distance to the little village on the island. On the beach front, with ample beach chairs and lots of sun. The room is of moderate size with a good size air conditioner and a large fridge. The bathroom is large but needs renovation. Our room price included free breakfast (American breakfast: 2 eggs, jam, bread, coffee or tea).

            Nice local Thai food, Right on the beach, Friendly staff

            This was our second time staying here at the Jirawan. First time it was just the two of us. This time we brought our daughter, two family members and two friends. The hotel itself is fine. It's nothing fancy by any means but it's right on the beach and the food is tasty. It has a good night time atmosphere too. We asked for an extra bed for our 8 year old in our room. The spring bed was broken so we had to make do with the mattress on the floor, which she was quite happy with because she felt like she was camping out!

            Good: location, considering Koh Samet prices value for money ok Average : pretty much all staff member not really happy and actually quite grumpy which is unusual for Thailand on such a level, except one young guy who was very helpful and good customer service, he is actually the reason why our rating is not a lot lower. Breakfast (ours was included) well below average and would recommend to get your food somewhere else. Apart from that we loved the view from our balcony and being right at the beach.

            Right on the beach, very friendly and professional service

            I stayed here for two nights, and could only recommend the place. I have been to this island many times, but this is the friendliest staff I have ever seen. The hotel has a beach restaurant with a nice view, and after food you can take your coffee or drink on the beach, still the same staff serving. Rooms are what you will get on an island, not luxurious but clean. The service staff is very well trained and attentive, my compliments to the owner who is actually there all day.

            Location

            This hotel is right on the si keaw beach, room was fine besides having an ant problem in the bathroom and bed couldn't work out where they were coming from. Breakfast was good had a full menu to chose from. This is the 3rd time I've stayed on koh samet and one thing that always surprises me about the place is the lack of typical Thai friendliness I don't know if it's because they don't have to really work hard or maybe because a lot of staff are from Myanmar I really don't know but it's not the usual Thai friendly customer service you experience everywhere else. Koh samet is not a cheap place when you compare it with Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket. The bed was very hard like sleeping on cement. I would stay here again but I don't plan to return to samet again in the future as 3 visits is more than enough. I would look at another hotel before staying here again. The further away from the beach the cheaper everything becomes.

            Not many amenities here. Room was clean and decent size, shower and bathroom were clean. Right on the beach, hotel has beach chairs for guests. Most hotels away from beach do not. New air-condition unit with remote control was handy. Worked well. Breakfast is ok, simple rice, eggs, veggie broth soup. Coffee was instant. Had to ask for milk and they brought it. No elevator, so had to walk up 3 floors to room. Overall a good budget hotel.

            quite spacious (10 of us went), breakfast was decent, we were super noisy but no one complained

            Not bad, our group of 10 teenagers went and fit into 2 family sea view rooms, the bath/shower room was pretty small and can get dirty easily because of the sand when we finished playing at the beach. Breakfast (American) was a little better than we expected, they let you choose a simple set from a menu of a few choices. We were very loud and had huge speakers playing throughout the night and morning and nobody complained which was very nice. Overall not bad, not prestigious at all but good price for a group of young people just finding a place to stay for the night!

            location right on the best sand beach

            oldish style accommodation and pretty basic but right on the most busy beach. Beach is getting crowded now that they are bringing in Russian day trippers from Pattaya and it can be a struggle to get a deck chair. If you want quieter go to the south of the beach or pick another beach further south. No safe in room but owner will lock up valuables for you. Wifi is very unreliable and a bit weak. Staff are a bit surly at first but much more friendly when they get to know you. Restaurant has surprisingly good food but there are better/more popular places on the beach. Bottom line - gives you a cheap room right on a beautiful beach. Cant complain too much about that. I had fun

            We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found the hotel to be of an acceptable standard. It was very 'no frills' and although was advertised as having a sea view, our view was off the hotel next door! Be warned that the hotel is quite difficult to find as it is not very well signposted and also the hotel is right in the buzz of it so it was quite noisy in the room in the evenings. Staff were nice enough, although they didnt clean our room when we requested which wasn't great. Overall I would prob stay here again mainly for the great location to the beach but not so much for the room/service.
