Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked two rooms on Koh Samed as a family of five travelling. Once you get off the boat that we paid 1000bht return for you are then greeted with a fee of 50bht per person to go through the port gate, you then get a taxi to your hotel, we were charged 200bht for a short ride up a hill to our resort. You are then advised that half of the island is a National Park so you have to pay 200bht for adults and 100bht per child to access the main areas of beaches and restaurants there seems to be a theme here!!!

Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and welcome drink, we were told that breakfast was served from 7am until 10am but advised to come after 8.30am as it’s less busy. We were then shown to our rooms. These were just as the photos on their website and were very modern looking and the air conditioning was great.

We decided to head down to the main beach so got the taxi as the roads are very narrow with lots of mopeds wizzing around we didn’t feel it was safe enough to walk it with children in tow. A return is 400bht which isn’t huge money but if your doing this twice a day it soon adds up.

Once at the beach which is lovely clear water and whiteish sand, we noticed huge amounts of speedboats coming backwards and forwards dropping off and picking up masses of Chinese tourists. This seems to be their chosen island destination. Unfortunately due to the boats whilst swimming in the sea there is a constant smell of fuel and noise of the engines revving which slightly ruins the tranquil setting.

Had some lovely meals on the island although some restaurants along the beach allow the Chinese tourist to belt out karaoke numbers whilst you’re trying to eat your meal so we avoided these at all costs.

Overall good hotel but is packed with Chinese who do make masses of noise whether its early morning or late evening which is a real shame. Also although there is a bar at the hotel you’re unlikely to get any service after 10pm so if your looking for a later night you need to head down to the main areas and taxi back.

Breakfast was quite basic unless you fancy a full Chinese takeaway.

WiFi ok in reception area as long as the Chinese have gone out as when they are around it slows down to be non existent also no WiFi in the rooms.

TV in rooms had the odd English Channel the rest are yes you guessed it Chinese

We stayed for 4 nights here. The location was pretty good and we were right on a beach, which made it nice for swimming. They do have a great pool too. It wasn't overly busy when we were there. But there were large groups coming and going, but they weren't that noisy. The breakfast is basic, but you do get to sit out and have a fantastic view looking out over the bay. The only problem I really had with our stay was the tap water, there was a slight discoloration. I didn't drink from the tap anyways and also had bottled water. It is relatively private too. Our room was spacious enough and we could sit outside on the balcony. For me it was relaxing and in a good location. The staff were very friendly and happy to help.

Room Tip: Personally I think the rooms on the 1st floor would be best. Perhaps they get a better view.

Having spent the weekend at this resort, it was a very enjoyable stay. The tranquility of the surrounding area on this beautiful island where you need to escape from busy Bangkok. Staff are nice and courteous, also delicious food at the restaurant. It seems they have new Management team with smiling staff. We highly recommend to our friends.

Hi we wanted to stay here for 4 nights but unfortunately they only had 1 room for 2 nights as they are fully booked so I'm on my 2nd night before I check out tomoro but I really like this place it is new and has about 50 rooms which are pretty much all see view the rooms are very nice good Aircon big TVs nice balcony huge comfy bed free wifi in rooms it's just perfect it's about 50 metres off the beach and has its own private beach with a jetty but the beach isn't very nice but the pool makes up for it nice clean and warm water with fresh towels on the sun beds daily!!! The free buffet breakfast is the usual basic menu but it's hot and plenty of food which is good the staff are very friendly the whole place is very clean the only problem is the place is full of horrible dirty spitting Chinese people they are noisy arrogant and spitting everywhere they so annoying but the hotel is very nice I will come here again on my next trip very nice hotel

The location is very nice but the island itself lives in a dark shadow of all the other islands I've been to in Thailand. The taxi service from the harbour dropped me at the complete opposite side of the island and then when I went to the taxi office to complain, they just tried to charge me again but even more. The hotel itself is very nice (nice pool area, friendly enough staff and breakfast is served looking out over a picturesque sea view) but the WiFi crashed for much of my time there and my reason for coming to the island was to get some work done during the last few days of my holiday. Overall, the hotel was let down by the island and I certainly will tell everybody I speak to not to bother with Koh Samet! The achilles heel of Thailand, very sad because it has potential.

If you don't mind very noisy Chinese groups, getting up very early because of doors slammings, cold showers and very basic breakfast covered in swarms of flyes, then this place is for you. This place only catered for big Asian group and this is reflected in the resort. The staff are really friendly

We booked to stay here for 2 nights as a stop gap from Bangkok to Koh Chang.

After a long taxi/ferry journey we were pleased to arrive at the resort. On first impressions it all looked fine, we were welcomed by a friendly/smiley member of staff which was nice and some of the other staff took our bags to our rooms.

The rooms were very clean and well presented, the air conditioning worked a treat, the swimming pool was within arms reach so from that point of view no complaints.

On the negative side.....

The resort beach is complete rubbish, almost no existent. The breakfast buffet is not great. The place almost shuts down by 10pm so no chance of getting anymore drinks unless you go to 7 eleven. It’s a fair walk on a evening back from the main strip so a pick up is pretty much your only choice and at 200 baht each way it can add up if your backwards and forwards.

The worse part of our stay was the masses of Chinese people who were so loud that it ruined the experience and they swamped the place so there was little room for anyone else. On top of that I don’t think they have ever seen a swimming pool before!!!! 👎👎👎👎

We stayed at the Samed Hideaway for a couple of nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was wide spread, good quality and abundant. Room was smart, clean and had a comfortable terrace. Pool area was very attractive with well maintained landscaping. Been around the whole island and the Hideaway appeared to be one of the best non luxury hotels in ko samed.

Nice hotel, decent room with balcony, adequate shower, ok bed, nice pool, decent breakfast, nice helpful staff. 15 mins walk to the pier around 25 mins to Saiquew beach. The restaurant is pretty good and well priced. The beach is quite small and poor and the location is a bit remote from the main areas. Nice place for a few days peace and quiet.
