Was far more expensive than other accommodations on the same beach. Room was badly decorated and was dirty and smelled of damp. The AC had no controller so the temperature was controlled by the owner and was set so that it was hot and humid in the room. There were dead cockroaches all up the stairs to the rooms which were there our entire stay, showing the lack of cleaning taking place. We walked a few meters along the beach and far superior bungalow for half the cost. Avoid this place at all costs.
We arrived on Koh Samet having not booked any hotel in advance as my THai partner was sure we would get it mych more reasonable locally as the prices quoted online were rediculous considering what was offered. We found this hotel and checked in (1,600Bht for two nights which was very cheap) I was warned that there was a lot of building going on around and in front of our room but didn't have an issue. The rooms were old and water pressure limited, but it is a small island so you have to expect these things. The beach is literally on your door step and 1 min walk from the room. Dont expect luxury here but it doesn't pretend to offer. Found it overall clean, friendly and in keeping with all other offerings in that area of Kho Samet. Would stay here again and most def will be doing.…
The hotel was okay, we stayed for two nights, could maybe have stayed one more night, not good for a longer visit. The breakfast was really bad, don't include it if you want to save money. The location was great and the service/room was okay. The AC did not really work as it was supposed to. Overall an average experience but ai wouldn't go back. Great view from the balcony though!
Don't expect to have your jaw dropped with this place. The rooms are old and not the nicest. However, we stayed there one night and the rooms were clean, dry and has the most powerful shower known to man kind. I switched it on and nearly ended up down the hallway. Luckily my vice like hands got the shower to submit eventually. But overall, it's right on the beach which, after all, is why we go to Samet.
I have to start with the excellent customer service at this hotel. Everyone from management to staff are so friendly and helpful. I was really amazed at the customer service here. I see a lot of bad reviews about this place, but those people must have never been to a lot Thailand hotels, or only stayed at big chains in Thailand. It's rare for a Thailand hotel to have a toilet, usually only a place to squat. Jirawan has a toilet, large restrooms, big clean beds with the sheets changed daily, and air conditioning. Since the hotel is on an island, the only way to get there is by boat. If you take the cheap route with the ferry, it is a long trip and then you get dropped off about a 15 minute bus ride away. I paid the 400 Baht for a speedboat that dropped me off on the beach right at the hotel. I had to wade from the boat to the dry land in only about 4 inches of water, so the speedboat gets really close to dry land. The hotel staff promptly ran out to carry my luggage from the beach to the check-in office. I booked the room with the breakfast option and they provide coffee or tea with your choice of either an "American" style breakfast or a Thai style breakfast. The daytime is all about enjoying the beach and water, while the nightlife is full of dinner, sites and sounds. This area of the island is all about partying, drinking and having fun at night. So expect loud music from other hotels nearby till around 1am or earlier if there are no customers. So if you want a quite, relaxing Thailand resort, go to Phuket. If you want relaxing days with an active nightlife, stay at Jirawan.…
