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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This is a review for the breakfast I had at The Tent for all 4 of my days in Samui. The food was absolutely amazing and the staff were even better. Like most Thai workers, the staff here were accommodating, efficient, and so friendly. I...would give the breakfast at The Tent 10 stars if I could. If you’re staying at Sala Chaweng you definitely need to eat here every morning. I will leave a separate review for the dinner as my experience was not as pleasing.More

We had breakfast here everyday on the beachfront and throughout the 12 days the service/quality was consistent throughout. Quality of the buffet is to high standards, with not too much food out, well presented and selective and small portion sizes to choose from. Food well...preserved and freshly replenished. A nice mix of Asian/European dishes on choice and very tasteful. All the staff are very attentive and responsive, kind to their guests. We never got the feeling breakfast was overcrowded. There is Daily specials on the menu to choose from and a choice of freshly cooked items ranging internationally with some traditional local dishes made. Skill/presentation of the dishes is to high standard, cooked from the heart, chefs at the Tent are amazing! So, that was just breakfast the experience we had makes you want to come back more. The lunches were lovely and the evening meals were again excellent quality and very reasonable in value (also considering the setting, high quality furnishings inside the restaurant, produce used) not much difference in cost in eating out. Special mention to Oh (The Tent Manager) what a warm, kind, human spirit she is, a unique and outstanding leader - other hospitality managers across the world (take note on how to lead teams, treat staff members kindly and how to act with professionalism, diligence, humility. Great work ethic and warm sense of humour. Not also forgetting all the lovely staff (Amp, Koy a few of many names who have contributed to making our stay such a warm and memorable one. Not forgetting all the boys at the Tent Beach Bar (I’ve previously mentioned Woody and Apple) but also shout out to Pond, Nong, Peter- you guys are just a credit to this hotel brand. Your work when not just serving out drinks/ help setting up guests does not go unnoticed in all the other parts of maintaining a clean beach environment. Customers can be very demanding in these hotels- It’s never easy and you guys do a fantastic job in client service. All left to say is I can’t wait to return in 12mths time.More
