“The worst place to spend your holiday!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2010

We are 6 friends from Latvia who stayed in Silver Beach resort for 5 days in beginnig of december 2010! Silver beach resort not the right place where to spend your holiday! The sea(ocean) was dirty all the time,the weather was very bad(all the time was raining),but the worst thing about this resort,the staff was very rood with as,very poor service! Bungalows are very old and with mouldy smell,it was really something hurrable! We will not advice to stay there,because there are more beatufil places in Thailand!

I took a gamble staying here after resding some dodgy reviews.

The location is just off the main road but just far enough away from the hussle and bustle of Cheweng.

Managed to get the Superior room for even cheaper than expected after a bit of negotiating. The beach is only a stones throw away but be warned there is a beach pty every sat night. However while we were there it wasnt that busy.

The beds were great but the rooms could do with a little TLC.

Last mention has to be to the great staff who I got on great with. There is a securtiy guard of a nigth aswell who patrols the grounds.

We planned to stay 1 week in this accommodation, but unfortunately checked out after one night.

This was because the beach bar played very very loud music until 3am every night. If this doesnt bother you, then otherwise this is a very good resort.

The rooms are very modern and spacious, with fresh stylish decor, TV with sky, fridge, modern bathroom, fan and a/c. You also have a large balcony.

There is a good restaurant with varied menu, a juice bar, a coffee bar, a crepe bar, and a beer bar.

Movies are shown on a big projector screen every night.

The resort is right on a beautiful beach, and just 15 mins away from the main pier, although the road is very bumpy, so dont try this walk with your suitcases on arrival.

Fan only 800-1000baht
A/c -1200-1500baht

They offered us a discount as we were going to stay a week, so always ask for this.

Overall the accommodation standards in Ko Samed are lower than other Thai islands we have visited, we found Silver Sands to be one of the very few that is up to Western standards. Thus it is very popular, book in advance if you want to stay here, 'just turn up' travellers could be disappointed that it is full.

(Budget travellers, beware coming here in high season, the National Park entrance fee is doubled. Overall the budget accommodation is lower standard, but higher in price. Silver Sands has been renovated, and there has been a price hike. Fan only never seems to be available...

Budget travellers should try the Koh Kaew Village (see the review for more details)

  • Liked — quality of room and resort facilities
  • Disliked — noise of beach bar
  • Tips/Secrets — book in advance, very popular resort

While in Thailand, at the Samui Airport we booked 2 rooms at the Silver Sand Resort on chawang beach. we were promised clean rooms with hot showers. when we arrived we to our rooms, we quickly learned the promise had been broken. The rooms were dark and dingy with Geckos running around inside. The bathroom was filthy and there was no hot water. We tried to get a refund but were denied despite multiple requests. The rooms were so bad we spent an hour going up and down Chaweng beach looking for better accomodation although we knew we wouldnt be getting our money back from Silver Sand. We found better accomodation at tradewinds!!! Awesome place!!! highly recommended. We ended up paying for 4 hotel rooms that night rather then stay at the silver sand!
