Samed can be crowded, depending on which bay you go - for those looking for quiet, private beach, try Lung dum bay (Uncle Black Bay), near Sang Thiean Bay (candle light Bay). Good food, decent hotel - but avoid Lung Dum Hut Beach Resort like the plague - it's dirty, toilet smells, and when we arrived, there was no one to greet us, there were contractors working on the resort so we weren't able to check in. Needless to say, we moved to another hotel, costs the same, much better. https://www.facebook.com/Kohsamed.AoLungdum/timeline
After a poor review left on the page, the owner was polite but very defensive.
Lung Dum Bay is a great place to go on weekday, especially if you want quiet beach as it becomes crowded during the weekends and holidays.
If you go to Ao Lung Dum, There's Jellyfish, Apacha - owned by the same family but different family member, right nearby, there's Ao Sang Thien (candle light bay) which is equally quiet and only a three minutes walk from Lung Dum.
