Have stayed at Samed Sand Sea many times over the past three years, and taken many family members and friends there. Everyone has liked the place.
It is located right in the centre of the main Sai Kaew Beach, and right where the road from the village comes out at the beach, so ideal for going into the village or visiting other places either end of the beach. The resort consists of a two storey wooden building containing individual rooms, plus another section along a tree-lined and shaded walk with individual bungalows.
Rooms are probably best described as basic, but quite utilitarian and all you want for a beach holiday unless you prefer the sterilized and often snooty luxury of more upmarket resorts. This place does not pretend to have that, but is more than comfortable and pleasant to stay in. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby.
Staff are efficient and friendly and the rooms and grounds are kept very clean.
The only real drawback to the place is their restaurant - an addition a few years back when they built the individual rooms section. We have only ever had breakfast there and frankly it was woeful. Break your fast *anywhere* else (Jep's Restaurant on the next beach serves excellent and substantial breakfasts - American, English, Continental, Mexican and German).
Good value for money. In the ratings section below, it does not have a pool or fitness centre.
Will always stay here when visiting Koh Samed.
