Hur sköttes bokningen?: The whole booking process was fine and went smoothly - good!
Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: Sai Keow Beach Resort, part of a small group that call themselves Samed Resorts and including certainly the best resorts on Koh Samet, is a huge place, roughly divided in 3 areas and with access to 2 very different beaches and 3 swimming pools.The resort is divided in the old or original style cottages, possibly when the resort opened for the first time, a new area built around a nice pool and bar, and even a better area called Premier Seaside with an infinity pool overlooking the main beach - take your pick!Personally I did not like the main beach, if you are here to relax this is like being in a constant noise and market place all the time (and specially during w/ends when it is even worse!); however if you like beach activities the this is the place for you, the main beach has got the resoort name Sai Keow Beach.I like very much staying in the old style but perfectly nice, and possibly better, cottages overlooking a much smaller beach called Pineapple Beach, but much better, quiet and really picture perfect; the cottages have also their own private patio with your own tree and swinging chair, as well as nice even if in need of some maintenance, large shower, and perfect bed; in this area of the resort also you have a lot of birds so is also nice from this point of view.Of the 3 pools definitely the best one is the infinity one located in the Premier Seaside area, even if the one located in the new built area, which has as well a pool bar is nice; there s a third pool towards the old side of the resort (near Pineapple Beach) which seems rarely used, so if you are looking for peace and quiet at the pool this is the one...Breakfast is served on the main and only restaurant overlooking the main beach (at least in the morning is quiet!), the usual stuff of various cuisines even if the egg counter should be improved, for example avoid to serve pre-cooked fried eggs.Sai Keow Resort is obviously it is trying hard to move away from the 3*** and move on to the 4**** classification - personnel is much better than at a 3*** of a similar size, they greet you all the time and are really helpful if you need something; unfortunately even if staff is extremely important in a resort of this size other things matters as well, one that come to mind is the disposal of rubbish, which sometime you can smell it rotten - but I suppose this is a major problem with Koh Samet itself...I would recommend the Sai Keow Beach Resort, however I would not recommend the main beach so the choice is yours!

Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: 4 nights at the sai Kaew beach resort. We had a lovely time, very nice hotel, helpful staff, great location. Only down side was it is a bit expensive, you can get the same quality hotels in Phuket , koh samui or koh Chang for a lot less money!

Hur sköttes bokningen?: The booking service was good, no problem
Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: A bit disappointed this time ! We reserved 3 rooms on the seaside view part. Before our arrival I sent them two mails to reserve a room on the ground floor as I had broken my foot a few weeks before ; No answer !Arrival : None of the rooms had a sea view !!!We were given the rooms around 4 pm, a bit late ! In one of the rooms we couldn t use the terrace, no cushions, nothing !Once we had our room cleaned at 5 pm... The staff at the bar and restaurant not very efficient, nice but not well trained !When check out I had to wait for 45 mn, almost missed the shuttle boat...

Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: If you have a beach hut you will need mosquito repellant, had masses of bites. Only minus was the bar, modern American style you had to dress to use it and restaurant, hardly used by guests when I stayed

Hur sköttes bokningen?: very good. they changed my dates without penalty.
Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: The resort location and facilities are top notch. We stayed in the Premier/seaside. Very modern and worth the extra money right on the beach.But the staff is lacking. English is very poor. I had to talk to 4 people to get a bucket of ice.It does not make sense to have such a nice resort without English speakers.Very frustrating

Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: A very good hotel, and looking forward to come back. Calm and easy athmosfare and the right place to have a luxurious and quiet place to charge the battery s .The infinity pool with direct access to the sandy beach, and private area for swimming was exellent. No boat inside the closed off area. Very friendly and nice staff, helping us in every way. The food in Zea restaurant was good, and with good prize:)Thanks for a great stay, and looking forward to come back soon.

Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: Very nice hotel, nice and quiet at night for a relaxing evening with some light music in the Zbar.located in thh perfect sport with a short walk along the beach to town, and many nice little bars / restaurants up and down the beach.Check in was friendly, however the massage prices everywhere on the island are quite pricey compared to the mainland. all in all its a great hotel and a great island.

Hur sköttes bokningen?:
Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: The Welcome was good , the hotel staff very courteous and also kid friendly. The food was excellent. The ambiance was very good. I would definetely recommend Saikaew resort.The basic amenities that normally there in a hotel were not there like a hand wash soap , tooth brush , body lotion etc. Every time to go inside the bath room for liquid soap and come back to the sink is difficult with the child. The Shower was not good in the room provided.

Hur sköttes bokningen?: Not brilliant now I m back home and look at the whole picture. The booking facilities were excellent for responding extremely quickly.. But I thought Imwas booking direct with the hotel and I actually wasn t .
Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: The staff were amazing especially Sally, who buy standards worked far too long hours almost in humane. We loved the room which we had to upgrade to and pay extra, and to call the bungalows deluxe was a joke we had to move back to the room I originally booked which I thought was the premier room was terrible and very low end of the market. We got bitten terrible and left a day early.and lost the last day as the hotel does not refund so anyone booking beware!

Hur sköttes bokningen?: Hotell-Thailand.se was 30% cheaper than hotels.com for the same hotel and room!I will defenitely use them next time when I go to Thailand.
Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: Staff and facilities are very/extremely children friendly, so we would defenitely recommend this hotel for families :-)

Hur sköttes bokningen?: User friendly. Felt safe after bad experience with other online booking service.
Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: I love this resort. If I return to Koh Samed I ll only stay here. We were upgraded to a gorgeous villa which was amazing. Being a single mum with two kids I never could have afforded this. We really appreciated it. Friendly staff, great food, nice beach. Thank you Saikaew Beach Resort.

Hur sköttes bokningen?: Easy
Övriga kommentarer om hotellet: Overall a great experience. A little bit expensive but probably worth it. Very efficient experience for check in (not used to this in Thailand). Check in at the pier and they take your bags and pretty much walk you through to the boat and onto a taxi the other side. I had heard some bad press about their bungalows. I did see some old ones but it seemed that we were put into some newer ones that had just been renovated. Not bad. The entire resort is very well kept and the restaurant area on the main beach seems very new. I was told the food and the service in the hotel restaurant was not so great but I actually found both to be excellent. Overall my stay was excellent and I would stay here again.

Super pasta and great salad dishes. Best location for dinning and party. and even for family. Thanks to all staff. We really had a great time. We will return there again for my next trip.
