    Rarely does accommodation in Thailand come with so much on offer at a more than affordable price. Immaculately clean, organised, and staffed with English speakers. More than that the staff are fun, genuine nice people. There’s a relaxing pool and separate swimming pool. Big screen TV for sport, and high quality ingredients are used to prepare tasty poolside meals. Look forward to returning.

    Nice stay ”

    Booked a one bedroom suite, room was bigger than the rest. Friendly reception who was able to speak simple English . Location is abit off from the party area , you will definitely need a motorcycle to get around. Not recommended if you do not know how to ride a bike . Communication was not a problem. Internal furniture was a bit rundown , not for fussy traveller. Giving this resort a good thumbs up , cos I have been to other resorts which is worst than this on Koh Samet . Would return to stay again .

    Large apartment”

    Pros: We had the 2 bed apartment, which had a fabulous rooftop garden. Although cleanseness was poor and rooms basic. Having 2 pools was great and the chef does a great breakfast. Con: abit of a trek to/from town if you out in the evening you wld need to get a taxi back. Sadly they are building more apartments in front of existing ones which now blocks the view of the sea. Over all a nice and quiet place to stay.

    It's a nice hotel at the edge of koh samet which mean that its a bit far from main tourist spots but offer a quiet nice place. Some sites are under construction in front of hotel which gives a bad view. Also the way to upper room was also dirty and not well maintained. Overall nice suite with basic needs. The best part are the two pools with nice garden.

But could be for others. -- the soundproof is far away the biggest minus. It could be a perfect resort if spend a bit more money on this. -- second stay my apt was upmost empty. Bed sofa and table thats it. No chairs closet or anything. Kitchen empty. No cutllery plates etc. Again i can deal with it. But just saying. --tv is uselezz. No channels! Plussses++ Rooms are big n spacious. When your neigbours are quiet it is a fantastic place to stay. Staff is nice. Restaurant nice. Affordable roomrates. Overall....Will come back!

    Seemed a bit pricey to me, but then maybe all Samet is like this? Not dreadful, so if this is coming up as one of the cheapest places available to you then go for it. Massive rooms, but maybe unecessarily large. Would prefer a smaller, cleaner room.

    Has potential ”

    I think this place has great potential to be such a quiet relaxing place. They did not mention that they had construction right next to the hotel. Our view was just a concrete building...It wasn’t annoying and only heard noises during mid day. Nothing in the morning or night. I was disappointed by the rooms decor. The outside looks beautiful but the room only had a simple couch, tv (with only 8 thai speaking channels) and a bed and closet. I thought there should have been lamps or some plants to make the room feel more comfortable. Food: ordered macaroni and salad. Took way to long and the food tasted very plain! Drinks were well done though. Staff were super kind and everything was clean. But I think room and food presentation needs work! Pool is nice. Located a few minutes from the beach and local areas. Not far from town if you have a bike!

    Friendly, relaxing and clean”

    I stayed here for a week and for a 3 star hotel I was very impressed. The room was spacious and clean with a well stocked mini bar. The staff were great, very helpful and friendly and after getting to know them a little I learned the kitchens were at a European level of hygiene which is hard to find especially on one of Thailands smaller islands and this showed in the quality and delicious meals I had there. With 2 swimming pools there's plenty of room to relax and for kids to play. Travelling alone i depend on good WiFi and Internet speeds for my entertainment so I was very happy to get a solid 25mbps here which was more than enough for Netflix or the likes. Koh samet is a tropical island and does suffer from power outages in heavy rain so I did loose power for a short time but that's not limited to this hotel, it was an entire section of the island and happens on most smaller Thai islands. To sum up, for a 3 star hotel on an island at this price you can't go wrong! English traveller

    Nice resort”

    Very big Studios and apartments. Can be a bit smelly inside as there is no air/fan for the bathroom, but tell the staff and they'll sort it. We had a studio and the bed was a bit small for us (like a double bed, not really queen size). The restaurant is a bit overpriced and the Thai food we ordered was rather bad, so we didn't try any other food. Apart from that its really clean and 2 nice pools. Need a scooter to go to the nice beaches and village which you can rent at the resort.
