Since visiting the island it does look as though there are cheaper options, but I wanted to book in advance and this was by far the cheapest option I could find. Its about a 5 mins walk down the beach from the 'centre' of Hat Sai Kaew. The reception is actually on the beach and is manned by plenty of young staff. They sell drinks from here too, which can be drunk on the patio area or the beach itself.
My room was right at the rear of the narrow site, close to some adjacent building works and the slightly scruffy rear entrance. Large patio with table and chairs. Fairly spacious room with two single beds, tv, a/c and a large bathroom. My only complaint would be that the bathroom doorframe wasn't built for 6ft+ people in mind and there was no safe (nor was there one in reception).
There are sunloungers and chairs on the beach to the front of the site, but it was quite busy (even in mid-week) so I chose to walk to other quieter beaches (Ao Nuan I think was my favourite) and return here later in the afternoon when it was quieter. Nice massages available, I even got a foot scrub without having to leave my sunlounger!

Its pretty basic but its cheap compared to the large resorts that surround it. If I was to visit Koh Samed again, I'd probably try the more basic bungalows on a quieter beach, but this is a good value option on the egde of the 'thick of the action'.

We stayed here with a friend this past weekend and really enjoyed the room. The location is great and within walking distance of several nice restaurants on the beach. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the only criticism that I have is that they promised to bring a 3rd bed for our room and never did. Other than this, the stay was great, the AC worked well, and the beach was beautiful.

Positives:
+++ 20 sec (max) walk to the beach
+++ 7 min walk into town (restaurants, 7-11): No need to rent motorbike or use local mafia taxi
++ 2 min beach walk to bars/restaurants
++ Great location on the beach: Unfortunately the town allows tour boats to moor ALL DAY on certain section of the beach, however the stretch where this place is located does not have boats moored, allowing for great swimming and un-obstructed beach chair views directly in front of the hotel
+++ Free use of beach lounge chairs/umbrellas
+ Nice beach-side coffee hut

Negatives:
--- Hundreds of TV channels, none of which are English. No channel guide
--- Accept cash only
-- Poor room cleaning: Had to request to have room cleaned & Poor bathroom cleaning
- Some building noise after 8am at the rear of the complex at the time of my stay
- Needed to request to have beach umbrellas re-aligned with the suns movement

Room tip: modern, recently built family rooms/huts (2 double beds) are at the rear of the complex (@ 50m from beach) and have small patio with narrow ocean view, while older rooms ( I did not stay in these) are closer to the beach but do not have patio. All rooms should not have noise issues
