      Nice clean rooms with balcony, good location and a decent inclusive breakfast!

      this is a great place to stay, its very close to the beach and main area of koh tao, the rooms are very nice and the breakfast is great... the only negatives for me were there was no tv (not that it was needed) and there was a cockerel that was noisy all through the night...

      Good, but could be better”

      The rooms are bright and airy, decorated in an industrial style that we quite liked, the bathroom was large and modern with large containers of nice smelling soap, shampoo and conditioner. The balcony was big with 2 nice chairs and a small table although the view wasn't particularly good, you could see the sea in the distance and it was a nice place to cool off with a cold drink. The bed was comfortable with nice bedding and felt clean. The walk to the best part of Sairee beach was 5 minutes, town same with lots of bar's and restaurants to cater for most tastes and pockets. What lets the place down is the meagre breakfast, 2 eggs done any way and a couple of slices of poor quality bread toasted and either one hot drink or a juice - no offer of an Asian style breakfast and no complimentary tea or coffee for guests staying at the SAMATHA. Cleaning is not done regularly, I had to specifically request what our requirements were. Overall a nice place but could be so much better.

      We found the staff always have an excuse to not do something. cannot give deposit back because no cash. did not clean room once in our 4 night stay. difficult to accept that we need breakfast a little bit early because we have to scuba dive each morning. ants everywhere. wifi didn't work. would never stay here again. only positives are cafe downstairs is relaxing. beds are comfortable.

      Don’t trust the good reviews....it is really bad!”

      I choose this place because of the high customer rating, and because it was a bit out of town and therefore not as noisy as in the town. I am convinced that the owner has used friends to post fake high reviews because the many nice reviews doesn’t match the reality. Positive: The bed sheets were clean. Out of the town but within short walking distance. Negative: The rooms/place is worn down and not maintained. The pictures are from many years ago and didn’t resemble the room now. The place is dirty. My soles got black walking barefoot in my room. Layer of dust on the table. The toilet bowl disgusting. Residues of soap remains from previous guests in the sink, soap holder and walls. And dirty fridge. In the common area downstairs the tables were dirty with filled ashtrays. It was crazy noisy the two nights I stayed there until 4-5 am. The owner used the ground floor as a hang out place for his friends with loud music, drinking and playing pool.

I went down a couple of times and asked them to lower the volume, however 10 minuets later the volume was at the maximum again. I talked to the couple next door about the problem and the wife started crying and said their vacation was ruined due to this place. All the rooms and the (dirty) balconies are facing the dirt road with a view of barracks were poor people are living. Definitely not a place to relax after a day at the beach. The curtains in the room was light lined curtains which didn’t keep out the light in the morning or the headlamps from the cars at night. Breakfast was included which is positive, but it was so small that I had to go to get more breakfast another place. You could order ONLY ONE of the following options: Toast butter & Jam, or Fried Egg on Toast, or Scrambled Egg on Toast, or Pancake, or Muesli Fruits with Yogurt, or Cornflakes with milk. My room didn’t get cleaned during my stay, they don’t provide shampoo/soap, they only provide water the first day. These things doesn’t matter

      Disappointed”

      I stayed there for 2 nights. The location is good, about 3-5 mins walk to the beach. The room is spacious, however, it’s not as clean as expected and there were ANTs! Even on the bed which is not acceptable! One of the lights in the bathroom was broken. The staffs are fine and the breakfast I think was okay for me. But being honest to myself, I won’t stay there again.

      Depressing”

      We checked in here before we moved to The Plantation Boutique Villas. The room we were first showed to smelt like stale urine as soon as we walked in and the bathroom was flooded and a bucket under the sink to catch the leaking water so I asked to change room straight away which they did. The room has been decorated in the modern concrete look but not to a very good standard or quality and the room just felt depressing to be in along with the terrible view of a water tank and muddy side street and the ants in the room. The food was ok in the restaurant. But I wouldn't choose to stay here again.

      Great breakfast, circumstances not awesome”

      This was a hit/miss stay for us. Overall the place has a nice, relaxed vibe and we LOVED the breakfast. The room was clean on arrival, however we didn’t have any cleaning service throughout our 6 night stay. We didn’t particularly feel we needed it, so we didn’t complain, but just be aware that it isn’t automatic. They supplied us with fresh towels and toilet paper upon request. The circumstantial downers: There is construction going on currently next door, which was fairly loud. The worst part was a fire kept right behind the building to burn excess materials...including plastic...that filled our room with the smell. On the last night, it was fairly windy and all night we heard what sounded like a creaking door opening and closing, making it impossible to sleep. We found in the morning that a large palm tree was rubbing up against the metal roof as it swayed in the wind. Don’t know what to say about this other than it sucked. There are ants, but we kept our trash bin outside and they didn’t bother us much. If you’re planning a stay in Koh Tao, we would recommend doing a thorough search. This place was fine, but if you plan to dive, many locations offer awesome packages for diving & accommodations, that would save you $$. We also think you could probably get an equally nice or nicer place for what we payed ($28 usd/night taxes included).

      perfect place in koh tao ”

      In the beginning I want to thank staff for everything! They were very very nice! Because of them we really enjoyed this place and feel comfort there. Breakfast was really amazing! pancakes were better than my mom cook!)) and coffee better than anywhere in Thailand. The room was also good, but if course if you like this style, kind of "loft". If you have room on the third floor you can see the sea from the beautiful balcony. Rooms on the second floor also nice. it's about 5 minutes walk to the beach. Nice place, I'll definitely recommend it. Best wishes!

      Pleasant Stay”

      We had an enjoyable stay at Samatha B&B. The management and staff were very friendly and helpful. The accommodation itself was fine, nothing fancy but does the job. The breakfast was a little disappointing in what you get, but then again there are other options close by that we made use of in addition to what was provided. Accommodation is close enough to the live action and beach but far enough away to enjoy a peaceful night's sleep.

      Really good value. Breakfast was good (not big but good quality), location is right around the corner from everything, it had a fridge and free water every day, internet worked well enough (it is an island after all). We really liked this place, except that there is no screen in the bathroom window so most days we had huge bugs that we had to trap and release.

      Even though I was there during a big storm, I found the staff very helpful and kind. Nice to stay in a place run by such genuine people. While it's not completely deluxe - it's an amazing value for the money and is in a location which doesn't require a motorcycle to get around. Lots to do on foot. Madison was especially kind and helpful.

      Great stay, modern, clean, nice location not too near to anything and good food. Madisson (a scot) was running this hotel whilst the thai owner was away, i believe she will always be there and she made our stay a pleasure. helping us with anything we needed. people would come from outside the hotel to chill and eat as it was that appealing and food was great. If this had Tv's, hair dryers and maybe a pool, it would be solid 4 star, because everything else is spot on. highly recommeneded. NOTE - THERE ARE ONLY DOUBLE BED ROOMS, NO TWINS!

      Would highly recommend Samathas to every-/anyone!”

      The staff, the atmosphere and the rooms

      We would highly recommend Samathas. It is truly a gem on the island. Perfect location, not too close to everything and not too far. You can easily walk to the central village with the bars, restaurants, shops etc in a few minutes but if you want to go to bed early and go diving early the next morning you will not be disturbed at night and you can walk down to big blue (the best diving place on the island) in 2 minutes. Their breakfast is amazing and they server it all day long. If you long for proper coffee, they have it. They also have some really nice and well cooked local food and drinks (dont miss the thai ice lemon tea). Where ever we went people were talking about their pancakes and waffles and many go here just for the breakfast from other hotels. The rooms are very very nice. Great design, clean, minimalistic, easy to clean and we enjoyed staying there very much. This is Thailand but we honestly did not have one single bug for our entire stay! They are very eco-friendly, let them know if you want your room cleaned every day but you have the option of not if you feel it is not neccesary yet. Also they have take away boxes that are NOT made from plastic! wohoo! save koh tao! The staff is amazing. We had such a great time. Madison and the other staff were very friendly and took good care of us. Laundry service worked smoothly. Close to the B & B is an ATM and a place where you can book taxis for reasonable prices. There is a clinic close that we didnt try and a bike shop where you can rent a scooter for a good price just outside. We would recommend Samathas for anybody. You get so much value for your money and compared to other hotels our friends stayed in Samathas is so much better and cosier. We would defenately come back.
