10,0 Excellent
Pros: Impeccable service, delicious food, outstanding room, wide range of activities, and beyond expectation
10,0 Excellent
Pros: It's really beautiful!
Cons: The only disappointment was being charged almost 2.000 baht for a bottle of wine that we later found in every supermarket for 350!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The beach was beautiful and we almost always had it to ourselves. Travelling into the hotel by boat, we saw many locations with very crowded beaches, but the beach at this location was clear and empty most of our visit. Having our own pool at our room was also a treat and worth the cost. The breakfast buffet each morning had everything we needed. There was a cook for omelettes, bacon and other meats, fruit and deli meat/cheese choices, etc... All very good! The staff here also tend to you constantly, very nice! When we traveled to dinner, they picked us up in a golf cart. When we sat in the beach chairs they showed up with a bucket of ice and water bottles. They have scheduled hours for bringing fruit, ice cream, and afternoon tea to guests. The person I was travelling with had a birthday during our trip and the hotel showed up with a birthday cake for her. Wonderful service!
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The beach is unbeatable, it is almost like a private beach. The team is really professional and make their best effort to ensure your comfort. Nice layout of room. The food is good, especially the seafood buffet with fire show, worth to try.
Cons: We stayed in room 109 next to the main pool, it is convenient as we have kids with us, yet lack of privacy if it is for couple.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful location. Very clean. Wonderful landscaping. Brilliant staff. Excellent accommodation. It really is difficult to find any negatives. It is a very expensive resort, but I do consider that you get the exclusivity and value for the money.
Cons: Cannot think of a single negative.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful clean beach, turquoise warm sea, great pool at just the right temperature, gym, well equipped thatched beach villa, excellent spa, amazing staff ! Complementary fruit and ice cream and afternoon tea didn’t need a lunch !
Cons: My only slight grumble was that there wasn’t enough entertainment and the excellent entertainment which we did see was from 7pm and only lasted 30-45mins. We were back in the villa for 8.30pm which was a bit too early, even for us who were there to relax. From past experiences at other similar venues the entertainment would start after dinner about 8.30pm. Also live music in the dining room at lunch and dinner would give it more atmosphere.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: We went there for just a two nights stay for our Honeymoon! We love how friendly and efficient the staffs were. They made us feel very welcomed even from the start. I like it that they were considerate as we are muslims so they try to provide us with muslim friendly food (no meat/no alcohol). The room we stayed in was marvelous, we were welcomed with our chosen essential oil, choice of drinks, our chosen natural soap bars and soft music. I love how that there are freebies during the stay, like the welcome drink, the 1pm fruits, 2pm ice creams and the 3-5pm tea time! The general manager was very nice too! Thank you GM Pornthep Hantrakarnpong and also one of the staffs, Jel! Their food is also amazing!
Cons: There were bunch of lizards and ants, but what to expect, it’s their natural habitat after all heheh

Pros: nice environment Nice complimentary fruits and afternoon tea Great beach and water activities

10,0 Excellent
Pros: The Friendliness and helpfulness of the staff was awesome. The hotel had a great cosy feel to it. Right close to the pier where the ferry drops you off and picks you up, so super convenient . Scooter rental shop was right next door, which was great too. Food at the restaurant was tasty, but there are great restaurants all along the island.
Cons: Everything was super nice, so If i really had to nitpick i would say that a new coat of varnish around the hotel would spruce it up really nicely. But that is really nitpicking.

8,3 Excellent
Pros: Free shuttle service from Ao Prao Pier to Samet Island
Cons: The food/breakfast was well below par. The music in the dining area was not very good, too noisy and upbeat—too much contradicting with the serene beach, island moods in the early morning. Talking with Customer Relations Khun Piengjai I understand the staff had no knowledge or taste about music—they called the outdated pop music being played at the moment as jazz! And Khun Piengjai told me there were many customer complaints about it. That left me to wonder, why so many complaints but nothing changed? Is that the managers, the management, or the owners just didn’t pay attention? Or they just didn’t care?

7,0 Good
Pros: The breakfast was great value and the pool was huge for the cottages.
Cons: Thai food was very poor, Beach has lots of day travellers who come in at the resort next door, spoils the beach as they all stand along the shoreline and all you smell is the fuel from the boats, was very very busy. Opted to stay by the pool instead.
9,0 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable room, nice bed and shower, very clean.

7,0 Good
Pros: The bungalow, the beach and breakfast/dinner
Cons: The beach is very nice, but there are a lot of boats and tourists between 09:00 and 16:00
5,0 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was great (Foto) and more than you can eat, also Service during the day, wonderfull helpfull staff, Tables for dinner close to the beach, great fod and good wine. Last day i left in the afternoon and they arrangend Speedboat and Taxi for me to go to back to the Banbkok Airport, Speedboat free and Taxi not overprized. Cleaning staff always lucky and do their job more than good, towels enough.
Cons: I am sure, this hotel and the beach was until a few years ago a insider tip to relax and how we say "Paradise". But now from 9 clock in the morning arrive masses of day tourists with speedboats, which arrive and start right in the front of the beach of the hotel, overloading the beach. The hotel staff do their best to keep the day tourists in their area, but most of the time unfortunately without success. In the hotel pool and on the beach chairs you have constantly the fuel smell in the nose from the numerous speed boats which arrive and left. The beautiful hammocks for the hotel guests are used as a photo subject so you can´t use but it doesn´t matter because the Speedboats dock directly close to the Hammocks. So you can feel relaxed not before 4 o clock when all the day tourists has gone. I am also business man and maybe the owner is not aware of the absence of the situation, but if it continues like this it looks bad for his business for the future.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: The bungalow we stayed in was beautiful, clean, right at the sea and with an exceptional view. The breakfast was good. There is a nice pool and a wonderful "private" beach area.
Cons: Even though the beach was private, there was a huge crowd of Chinese tourists arriving on noisy speed boats every morning who "invaded" the beach and restaurant. In the afternoon, they left again but still, the place was only idillic by the time they left. Staff the hotel is friendly, but could be a bit more engaging.
6,3 Good
Pros: we really like the beach and the laid back atmosphere half of the time...it’s really close to the beach. besides, the bungalow is cozy .
Cons: the reason why we chose you is the private beach but somehow it’s now PRIVATE anymore. it’s open to the Chinese tourist group every morning so before noon, it’s crowded , noisy there....I won’t choose this Mooban Talay next time
9,6 Excellent
Pros: This hotel is beautiful the sea views and garden view huts are outstanding. The grounds are clean and well kept. The outside shower is very nice. Was there during the week so not crowded. It was very peaceful and quiet
Cons: I loved everything

10,0 Excellent
Pros: My second breakfast day, a waiter had an angry face, didn't smile at all, in a country of a smile. He should avoid the contact to the customers, only back office work.
Cons: Super service from Beam and Gym. The boat tour to the 6 islands, was one of the best service, that I had in Thailands.. even better than a boat tour on Hongs island and Phi Phi islands, last years. I will be back for sure, one day, but in the room V7... only. Good breakfast, specially the fried eggs.. 555.Fantastic fire show and Barbecue sea food dinner, to be there, on the right day. Tastefully cocktails in the Flaming bar. Thank you
7,5 Good
Pros: The beach was lovely and there are some newer cottages that looked nice. Breakfast was fine and the BBQ dinner was delicious. Staff were really friendly and helpful.

Pros: Nice beach
Cons: Nice beach. the price is way to high for what u get! The room is really old, some of the windows don’t even have curtains.
4,2 Okay
Pros: Location.
Cons: The deluxe hillside room is far from being deluxe. We paid USD 200 per night and its NOT worth the money. We stayed in VIP (...) 6: small room, very old interior, no water pressure in the bathroom, toilet seat too old/yuk to sit on, aircon was not allowed to put lower than 20 degrees and still not cooling the room, bed sheet ripped, beach towels ripped. We also did not want to touch the mosquito net as we were afraid it would fall down. And interesting enough a bed side lamp that we could not turn on because the only available plug was too far away. There’s rooms better than this on Koh Samed for half the price. And we know because we’ve been to Koh Samed more than 40 times in the past 15 years....
6,7 Good
Pros: Perfect location and the beach, good restaurant and services
Cons: Very old room, sometimes noise from the outside in the evening

Pros: Love the location of this hotel, and the staff are very helpful.

4,2 Okay
Pros: The rooms are nice and big The staff at the bar are the only one who is able to speak English and it seems that they want to help us.
Cons: The hotel tried to charge us extra for a child bed even if we booked especially a rat with kids. 1000 Bath extra per Night. The pool was during our stay out of order and the hotel do not want to pay any money back for this . The beach is small and dirty with glass The whole seats are old and have holes and is not serviced since 8 years. The staff at the reception even the management gives you the feeling pay and go away. They are not interested in guests. On booking.com is written banybeds are available on request but the hotel has simply no babybed so you have to take an extra bed against extra money. The for family’s avoid this hotel. On weekend there are a lot of people from Bangkok making party. We would not recommend this hotel and we left one day earlier with no refund because it was only horrible.
7,1 Good
Pros: It was lovely sitting next to the water and relaxing. It would be better for people who are wanting to spend up big on food and drink and just enjoy the view.
Cons: Some of the staff were not very helpful at all. I think there is a huge language barrier for a few of them. Having the pool right next to the bar and restaurant made it feel like you were interrupting people by having a swim.
5,0 Okay
Pros: The Location was ok
Cons: The Bed, was just a Mattress placed on an elevated part of the bedroom - which was very uncomfortable to get to. Breakfast was quite "limited" in choices No real Beach there - they are further away Even though the property is only 5-6 years old - the whole place appears un-finished? The Toilet Cubicle is rather ... small, in fact, the whole bathroom area could have been bigger

7,9 Good
Pros: Good location and private.
Cons: Recommend to have water to clean feet in apl rooms before go inside the room.
7,5 Good
Pros: This was our 3rd stay here so we obviously love it. They seem to have re roofed the bungalows and laid a laminate floor (though we never had a problem with the previpus polished concrete floors). The breakfast was spot on with plenty of choice for all nationalities and the meals at other times very nice, if slightly expensive, but we found this at all restaurants in this bay. They staff are a lot friendlier than the last time we were here especially on reception. The selling point for this resort is without doubt the location right on the beach.
Cons: If you arrive at the resort by taxi as apposed to by boat then the entrance is an absolute tip with garbage everywhere and gives a very bad first impression, which is a shame. The price of a glass of wine is nothing short of extortion though the narrow happy hour of 3 hrs in the afternoon week days and 2 hrs at weekends where you get 2 4 1 helps.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Location right on a beautiful beach, crystal clear water and nice big clean room as a bonus. Restaurant was bit more expensive, but the food was worth it. You can arrive with a speed boat or slow boat. If you are not comfortable with bumpy ride, go for the slow boat. The one with name Malibu will drop you off directly in front of reception.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The great resort on the best beach of the island. Bungalows are very good, clean and directly on the beach or in the garden few metres from the beach. We walked around few other beaches of Ko Samet and Wong Deuan was, in our opinion, the best - there is a space, clean sea, shadow or sun, and resort have a lot of sunbeds for their guests. Resort is quite calm, no problem to relax there. Regarding staff - complete satisfaction, the same for breakfast, which was really good, in buffet form. We spent there four days, which were really excellent.
Cons: Absolutely nothing. Just maybe have mattresses on sunbets could be useful.

Cons: the price for the room,
7,5 Good
Pros: We spent 2 relaxing nights here, much of it by the pool. The poolside bar was great and there was a good choice of cocktails and soft drinks including amazing mango smoothies. The staff were friendly and polite too. Breakfast was ok but we would've liked more of a variety of fresh fruit. The omelettes were very tasty and plentiful. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach, which is stunning but busy. Also, you can walk to the ferry in about 10 minutes so don't waste money on a taxi! Would recommend.
Cons: No real view from our room. Better coffee and more fruit at breakfast.

Pros: The location and the cabins

Cons: Rooms were a bit small in size.
6,3 Good
Pros: - very clean - nice terrace where you can in the evening - friendly and helpful staff
Cons: - bathroom is a total disaster. It is separated by a very thin wall from the room and you have a feeling, sitting on the toilet that you are actually in the room. What's more, the wall separating bathroom and the room is not full, it is open above. It is very uncomfortable when you are not alone in the room. - humidity. You have a fan in the room, you have to pay extra for the air conditioning. If you touch one wall, it is totally wet. I think, the hotel should provide air conditioning in its own interest. -after one day the room is smelly. Why? read what's above. - very little toilet paper in the bathroom

Pros: The staff was super nice, helpful and handed out some discount vouchers for bars and shops. The room was clean, the bed very comfy and the bathroom a size you would expect for the prize. We were very pleased with out stay!
Cons: The only "bad point" was the view from the room but with the beach right around the corner you don't need a good view.

Pros: 2 min stroll to the beach. Nice bars nearby. Food was good in the evening.
Cons: Bed was very hard, not even sure it had a mattress. Floor was dropping in bathroom.
5,8 Okay
Pros: The location is second to none which is why I stayed there.
Cons: Charging guests to use the deckchairs is very poor. I know this place so know what (not) to expect but it still irks me that so little is done to maintain the bungalows and create some good cheer. The staff do little to enhance the ambience or show any care.
7,9 Good
Pros: Foods are amazing and friendly staffs. Beach front are very clean and quiet. Not many tourists
Cons: Towels are very old and hard. Should change to a new one already.
2,9 Mediocre
Pros: it was a good location which is all there is to like about this dump
Cons: no fresh linen in a week no fresh towels in a week the staff were not interested in anything the staff never smiled and were not friendly the food was average the toilet leaked bunglaow was totally rundown, aging and needed repair
3,8 Mediocre
Pros: Location is only good thing. There are other nearby places that charge 2 times less for a room with A/C. They are in front of the best beach.
Cons: No water pressure under shower, ants in room, smelly, fridge was very rusty. Air conditioning required you to be in the room. The bed is as uncomfortable as it can be.
5,0 Okay
Pros: I loved the location and the beach near the bungalows and hearing the waves from the room.
Cons: The bed was really uncomfortable and the shower water smelled really badly of eggs whenever you turned the shower on. The staff at the restaurant spent most of their time on their phones and it took a long time to get served or get their attention to pay.
8,0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, relatively close to the main pier of the island. Among the best options in Koh Samed for those looking for simple, easy-going, clean accomodation right in front of the sea and far enough from the noisy disco bars. In a 200 m long beach you have everything you need and you are still within walking distance from more beaches, more restaurants….. The wi-fi works very well within 50 meters from the lobby and the restaurant. You can leave your valuables at the lobby. The food in the restaurant is among the best 40% we found in the island and the service is relatively fast. The simple bungalows with fan (which I like more) are located in front of the sea, while the a/c bungalows are located lightly behind.
Cons: We had to ask the reception for a sheet, because in the bungalow we found only mattress cover, pillowcase, and a (quite useless) light blanket. It is a pity that the restaurant don't provide grilled food (no BBQ).
5,4 Okay
Pros: Location great. Everything else basic.
Cons: Bring your own towels. Security poor eg no safe

Pros: It's really beautiful!
Cons: The only disappointment was being charged almost 2.000 baht for a bottle of wine that we later found in every supermarket for 350!
10,0 Excellent
Pros: The beach was beautiful and we almost always had it to ourselves. Travelling into the hotel by boat, we saw many locations with very crowded beaches, but the beach at this location was clear and empty most of our visit. Having our own pool at our room was also a treat and worth the cost. The breakfast buffet each morning had everything we needed. There was a cook for omelettes, bacon and other meats, fruit and deli meat/cheese choices, etc... All very good! The staff here also tend to you constantly, very nice! When we traveled to dinner, they picked us up in a golf cart. When we sat in the beach chairs they showed up with a bucket of ice and water bottles. They have scheduled hours for bringing fruit, ice cream, and afternoon tea to guests. The person I was travelling with had a birthday during our trip and the hotel showed up with a birthday cake for her. Wonderful service!
9,6 Excellent
Pros: The beach is unbeatable, it is almost like a private beach. The team is really professional and make their best effort to ensure your comfort. Nice layout of room. The food is good, especially the seafood buffet with fire show, worth to try.
Cons: We stayed in room 109 next to the main pool, it is convenient as we have kids with us, yet lack of privacy if it is for couple.
10,0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful location. Very clean. Wonderful landscaping. Brilliant staff. Excellent accommodation. It really is difficult to find any negatives. It is a very expensive resort, but I do consider that you get the exclusivity and value for the money.
Cons: Cannot think of a single negative.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful clean beach, turquoise warm sea, great pool at just the right temperature, gym, well equipped thatched beach villa, excellent spa, amazing staff ! Complementary fruit and ice cream and afternoon tea didn’t need a lunch !
Cons: My only slight grumble was that there wasn’t enough entertainment and the excellent entertainment which we did see was from 7pm and only lasted 30-45mins. We were back in the villa for 8.30pm which was a bit too early, even for us who were there to relax. From past experiences at other similar venues the entertainment would start after dinner about 8.30pm. Also live music in the dining room at lunch and dinner would give it more atmosphere.
8,8 Excellent
Pros: We went there for just a two nights stay for our Honeymoon! We love how friendly and efficient the staffs were. They made us feel very welcomed even from the start. I like it that they were considerate as we are muslims so they try to provide us with muslim friendly food (no meat/no alcohol). The room we stayed in was marvelous, we were welcomed with our chosen essential oil, choice of drinks, our chosen natural soap bars and soft music. I love how that there are freebies during the stay, like the welcome drink, the 1pm fruits, 2pm ice creams and the 3-5pm tea time! The general manager was very nice too! Thank you GM Pornthep Hantrakarnpong and also one of the staffs, Jel! Their food is also amazing!
Cons: There were bunch of lizards and ants, but what to expect, it’s their natural habitat after all heheh

6,3 Good
Pros: The garden area is quite nice and the beach section is great for peace and quiet, and for kids. The pool is good too, but only for adults or older kids. The free ferry to and from the island is a great touch and very handy.
Cons: For the price we paid in low season, 2,700 baht for a cottage, we got a semi detached one, but was expecting a detached, we thought this was a bit expensive for what we got. The room was quite small with no chairs for sitting, and the mattress was on the floor with little space. For a family of 3 this was quite cramped. The pool didn’t have a kids shallower end, but this is not necessarily the resort’s fault, but made it hard for my 2 year old kid to enjoy it unaccompanied. The breakfast was way too basic for what we paid, even when we came down with over an hour left before it finished, some things were not replenished. So, it’s not a buffet as such, because you need to order the American style set.
9,6 Excellent
Pros: Comfortable bed in a very nicely decorated room. Staff are friendly and helpfull.
Cons: There are sandflies on the beach so you will get lots of bites that itches.
