Affordable and reliable”
Not my first time in an air con hut at Tub Tim. Basic but affordable for a hut that sometimes has a sea view. You'll be able to hear the sea as it is a peaceful place. Beach is great and not plagued by too many noisy speedboats arriving and departing but can feel chilly when the sun is blocked by the hill and trees at about 5pm. There's an excellent reef and a fun wooden platform you can swim to. Breakfast is pretty basic but lunches and dinners are good value, varied and tasty. Shame the volleyball net seems to have been dismantled, although it was always a tight squeeze on quite a small beach.

Comfortable bungalow located on a nice beach”
The beach is nice and quiet, and has an easy access from the pier. The restaurant of the resort is nice (better than many around). The hotel helped us organize a snorkeling excursion. Rooms are simple but comfortable. Our air-conditioning was broken and they offered us to change rooms. The main problem for us was that there were too many mosquitoes...

My wife and I spent almost a week at the Tubtim resort. We really enjoyed staying there, we have been treated very nicely. Perfect room size, cleaned on daily basis. Staff was very friendly, A special thank you goes to Uan for his great customer service! Food and drinks are the best of all the island. Highly recommended!

This hotel is perfectly situated on the island. Quiet beach but not far at all from bars and restaurants. The Tubtim team is very nice and helpful. The beach is clean and large, the restaurant offers a large choice of meals and beverages.

Best Place To Stay on Samed”
In almost twelve years of going to Koh Samed, we have only stayed at a couple of places but prefer Tubtim. (The times we have stayed elsewhere was because Tubtim was sold out.) Great beach, excellent food, and the friendliest staff on the island. Even if you don't stay there, it is worth a visit for the restaurant, which has a great selection of both Thai and Western food.

Long Time Favorite”
Probably a little overpriced because it is in such demand, but still worth the money. Everything is done well and with good taste, but not over-done either. The service is excellent, the food is good, the bungalows are cozy, the beach is nice (depending on the wind) and the overall experience is enjoyable. We will be back (again)!

Excellent”
Tubtim is a great option if you're looking for a quiet escape from Bangkok without too much travelling. Completely unpretentious, the rooms are comfortable and clean and the local food in the restaurant is outstanding. A 15-minute walk from the crowded main beach on Samed, the hotel is in a lovely quiet bay with very few tourists passing through. The only slight downside is a construction site on the beach to facilitate a nearby dam project. As long as there is no work ongoing (there was none during my 10-day stay) it is only a minor disappointment - the beach is still beautiful and secluded. There is also another stunning cove five minutes walk further south for those looking to escape the crowds completely.

Noisy party at the hotel”
There was a private party during my stay. We could hear the music as soon as we arrived(13.00) and it cotinued until mid night. The hotel should not have allowed the music after 10 pm. Other than that, everything was great.

Location location ”
This was my first trip to Koh Samet and the island itself is definitely worth the visit. Tubtim is on a quiet little beach away from the noise of the beach with the loud bars but less than 5 minutes walk away giving you the best of both worlds. The hotel itself is cute but a little rough around the edges. If you are looking for 5 star luxury this isn’t it. If you’re after a quaint quiet little place to stay right on the beach you’ll be satisfied. My room had a view of the beach from the balcony which was lovely. The room did what it needed to do, but wasn’t somewhere you’d want to do much more than sleep and dump your things before hitting the beach. Air conditioning worked well, as did the wifi. Restaurant food was good and tasty but was a bit of a lucky dip, something completely different to what I ordered arrived at the table a couple of times. The staff were lovely and friendly. All in all I’d go back and stay there again.

Tubtim is the perfect location for a stay on Koh Samet. It's sufficiently close to the action but then sufficiently far away from it to enjoy a peaceful stay. The beach is lovely, the island stunning, and the staff are charming and helpful.

Be Careful”
This resort double charged my credit card for over 5000 baht. The second charge came a full day after I had checked out. I contacted my Thai credit card company & they are hopefully sorting it out. I got the impression that this wasn't the first time this resort had done this to a guest.

Good food, great location. Close to all amenities inc restaurants and shops but still very quiet at night ( so sleeping is easy) which is exactly the right balance. Staff could be a little more attentive at times, but overall was a great 4-night trip.

The hotel is a bit further from the noisy area but close enough to walk there. It's right by the beach. Quiet. The room was big enough for 3 people. Wifi was just ok but other than that everything was good. Breakfast is ok. I wish i could spent more days there.

Overall best choice in Samet, and I have been to many”
The location at the crook of a small beach makes it less crowded than Sai Gaew or Silver Sands, and you can hike over the rocks to a truly secluded beach even in high season. Also the food is very good here, with special southern Thai dishes rather than just the touristy "seafood barbecue". The balcony seaview rooms are less expensive than the overpriced "luxury" bungalows on Ao Phrao, but offer better sea views. Ice buckets in the restaurant are only 15 baht (many resorts charge 50) Tubtim Resort has been around since the 1990s and is still the best overall value on the island.

Loved this place”
Quiet beach area. Easy access to beach hop by walking, which gives you many options for dinner. Resort has different classes of accommodation. We stayed fan bungalow with hot water. Not far from beach. Fan was sufficient to keep cool at night. Hot water met needs. Bed comfortable. Plenty of drying spots for clothes and towels. Food was not that great from the restaurant, preferred to eat nearby. Breakfast is basic, but ok. Next beach along has a fantastic breakfast if you have a big appetite. I would stay here again due to comfort,closeness to nearby areas, and quietness of this beach.

Best affordable place to stay on Samet. Away from the buzz and yet within walking distance to the busier beaches. The food is super yummy and value for money. Even other resort guests visit the restaurant here. Thank you to the attentive and friendly staff and services and a wonderful stay at Tubtim.
