“Great time with friends”
Reviewed 17 August 2014

Booked 2 Thai Cottages, as our Friends had never been to Koh Samet before & we thought it would be something different for them, rather than a normal Hotel room. Hotel organised to have 2 Cottages joined together, which was very good for us all & worked well.
Breakfast adequate & covers options for most peoples tastes.
Straight out of the Hotel & you are right onto the Beach, couldn't be better placed & very easy access.

I was saved by this resort because I had originally booked a few hotels down at a terrible hotel and the next day I walked the beach and ran into this resort which had a room open that night so I could switch. It was clean and my room was really big and very nice. The staff was friendly and the resort itself was pretty. Also a few steps from the beach, which is nice, and a couple minute walk to the main street where the shops are. The only downside is that there wasn't wifi in the rooms, but they had pretty good wifi in the lobby.

Stayed 3 nights in the new wing room 4 (I think). Room very spacioues, very "chick", good shower, fridge, bed and telly. This was a garden view room with a lousy garden outside. 4000 Tbh/ night in low season is to much.
Breakfast bad due to staff more interrested in their "Facebook" than customers. Same during daytime and evening!!!! No service at this hotel!!
I will not stay again.

Room Tip: New wing rooms ok! The whole island is full of garbage, but if you are one of "been there done...

we had a quick 2 nights getaway from our home in Pattaya. Koh Samet seemed to be a good choice, close by
, nice beaches.
The hotel looked good on the web. We stayed in a Thai Style bungalow with beach view. The room was,s some other post already mentioned, full of mosquito's. Nothing what a can of spray could not fix. But the cleanliness was not so easy to fix. Very small and dusty. The bathroom had mold in the grouting, sink was blocked, and it seemed that everything was somehow broken, chipped or not working. thank god for tape and silicone. The same with the restaurant. No ceiling fans to move the air around, the breakfast buffet did not look hygienic. The choice.... For the price we paid for the room, about US $ 100 it was disappointing. This hotel is a 40-50 $ place at the most. I would not stay there again.
Than there was the island itself. The baech was very nice to just vegetate and have some beers. But one street of the beach it was rubbish and sewer where you looked. Sad to see that nobody takes better care of the island why=ich could be very nice.

I always liked Samed Grand View but now with new rooms built it got even more better. Location is super but it's not your option if you'd like a quiet beach with little people. Little bit slow service but you're in Thailand and on vacation,, and no need to hurry anywhere. thus only good impressions and memories left

After ready the reviews I thought this place was going to be a nightmare. I was happily surprised with the great modern and clean room that we had. We were not staying in a bungalow so I couldn't say about them. I understand now why the reviews were so bad... the service is terrible. Whenever we would order anything we would have to wait for at least an hour. In most cases we would have to order again and again the same thing because staff had forgotten about our meals / drinks. I am quite accustomed to traveling in Thailand so I'm used to letting things slide and not care too much about these things but this hotel really abused their clients in that sense. The beach is nice but not quiet. At night they put bean bags out and there's a dj playing very good music but VERY loud. I mean you can't really hold a conversation.

Just next to the beach. The bar in hotel is nice. Food and atmosphere make you feel relax. one thing is not good, facilities in the room are a little bit out of order.
