"We've been to Tubtim a number of times (as well as other places on Koh Samet) - starting in the travelling days and staying in their basic fan room and upgrading to now an aircon garden view. There are comparable rooms/huts across Koh Samet for this price if you put the time and effort in to shop around. It's a basic, clean enough hut with a fan and aircon. Curtains were a bit grubby and the fan starting to go rusty and there wasn't the screening under the sink that was in the photos. The garden setting is fine, nothing fancy. Where it is special in our opinion is the beach - it's generally pretty clean as the staff rake it daily, it's a smallish cove and has an intimate feel to it, especially when it's dark and the lanterns are on. The water was reasonably clean (apart from the first day, something about the tide/direction of wind that made me panic about paradise lost) but plastic is ruining the swimming experience. The food was tasty and they offer a good variety, staff always available. The inclusive breakfast was good, and I enjoyed the variety of Thai breakfast on offer as well as the normal toast, jam, fruit and yoghurt. 20 to 30 minute walk to the main drag is not bad really, plenty of places to rest and have a coconut along the way. We would consider coming back here but would shop around as there is good competition. "

"Stayed with my boyfriend. Bed very big, and very comfortable for Thailand! It had a sheet, a blanket and a nice pillow. Big, clean room with a view of the sea through floor to ceiling windows. Aircon worked powerfully and there was a fan option. There was one chair in front of the cottage. Food at the resort was usually very good, but take my advice and don't order a baked potato in the day - only from the evening bbq! Also the cheese isn't real cheese, it is burger style plastic cheese. The service was sometimes painfully slow, which didn't matter too much unless you were eating before going on a trip, but it was a little frustrating. My favourites were seafood green curry and pork bbq stick. The beach was amazing and not too busy. Much, much nicer than the other beaches we saw on the island. It had two snorkelling points that were deserted and peaceful. The resort has home made wooden swings hanging from the trees all over the place, some can fit three people at a time and are a lot of fun. There are hammocks too. There is a nice pool but we didn't go in as people with long hair must wear a swimming cap - and we prefer the sea anyway! The people staying at the resort were mainly families and couples, with a few groups of friends. They were mainly foreign with a few Thai visitors. The roads are extremely bumpy, and the taxis are more like jeeps. Make sure you get in one that has padding on the seat or you will get a sore bum! It costs 450 baht to go one way from the pier on Koh Samet to Ao Wai beach. It costs 400 baht one way to go in a taxi to the popular Diamond Beach from Ao Wai. I recommend taking a private speedboat straight to the resort from Ban Phe pier, because if you take the normal ferry you have to climb over loads of other boats at Koh Samet pier, and sometimes jump some big gaps between boats, though there are boat boys to help you with your bags. Also you don't have to bother with taxis at the other end!"

"Samed Grand View Resort is situated on SaiKaew beach, the largest of the beaches on Koh Samet. Here the water is clean and very nice for swimming. As the largest beach on Koh Samet there is plenty of choice when it comes to dining and other attractions. The hotel is nice, bungalows and hotel blocks in a nice garden setting, just off the beach. The hotel restaurant is beautiful with a lovely view of the beach."

"Good, quiet location on Ao Phai beach in Koh Samet. Would definitely return and recommend this resort to other travellers. The downside of the resort had no signal for certain mobile services and the hotel had wifi issues which was a bit of a let down. Other than that we had a great time."

"Our first time in Koh Samet. As we booked quite last minute we only managed to book a hillside room which was still lovely. We were right at the top so we actually had a lovely panoramic view of the beach. We had free transportation from the Ban Phe pier straight to the resort which saved us a lot of time and money. Very quite and relaxing area and not overly crowded. The staff at the resort were lovely. We would have liked more activities around the resort as pools closed at 8pm and there wasn’t much left to do in the evening. Other than that, we cannot fault the resort. Highly recommended. "

"excellent hotel, Staff are great, the road leading to the hotel needs to be fixed but apart from that no complaints, the best hotel in Koh Samet and i have been going there for many years, this is a new hotel which is very comfortable. If your not wanting the usual Koh Samet standard of room then stay here. A little bit of Luxury. I cant wait to get back and see the Staff again. English owned hotel. I met the owner who is very approachable and friendly."

"The hotel is located in the middle of the town (I mean Koh Samet is small, but you can call this spot middle of the town). Next to the hotel you have the beach, the longest in Koh Samet with great restaurants and entertainment. The breakfast is ok, but needs some attention from the F&B Manager. But the breakfast in the other hotels are far behind this hotels, yes, checked! The room is spotless and there is nothing to complain about it, it is big and nice. The hotel staff is very attentive and don't forget to tip the cleaning lady, you will be suprised about some suprises:). I can recommend a stay in this hotel, I think it is still the best hotel on Koh Samet. Via the motorcycle you can go to all other beaches and it was funny, you can hang around in the other hotels too, just have a drink at their bar. "

"This was my first time time to Koh Samet and we chose La Lune based on good reviews and price.  The hotel was good and clean, which os surprising considering the sand on everyone's feet.  They are little foot wash pools outside the lobby that help.  The restaurant was okay, but really shined when the evening came and they do a beach side barbeque each night. Delicious.  This hotel tended to be quieter than its neighbors and my wife and I appreciated that.  Plenty of other restaurants and mini-marts are within walking distance.  The beach was good and wide enough when tide was down.  Even when up, there was enough space for sun worshipers. The pool is clean and partially shaded at certain parts of the day.  The staff is friendly and seem to work non-stop.  So at least you can become familiar with them.  I would recommend this hotel to anyone I know wanting to go to Koh Samet. We took the Cherdchai bus from Bangkok-Ekkamai to Ban Phe. Round trip tickets were about B320 each and takes about 3.5 hours each way.  Once you arrive at Ban Phe you can walk across the street to Nuantip pier and buy a ferry ticket to Ao Wongduan.  You have to wait until they have 20 people before they go, but its not bad.  They ferry you to an initial pier, but you stay on the boat and they continue on to Ao Wongduan.  Once in the bay, you transfer to a flat boat that takes you to the beach, with a charge of B10 per person.  If you have trouble walking or getting around, I would recommend finding a speed boat that can take you directly to the beach.  Transferring between the pier - ferry - boat - beach can be tricky.  Once on the beach, you have to pay the National Park entrance fee, B40 for Thais and B200 for everyone else.  So have some cash on hand before leaving the pier.  "
