Pros: Breakfast was ok. Coffe really good! Far to walk to the "main beach" from the hut. Far to walk to the 7/11 for groceries/snacks.
Cons: Only guest in restaurant in the evening and they forgot to serve dinner to 1 of the party. Waited first for 30 minutes - which was told to the guest, but after 35 minutes they came and said that they had forgot to prepare the dinner. Guest was offered to wait not pay but to wait another 20 minutes for serving but all the other had already finished their dinners so we decided to find food elsewere. Party was compensated by not paying for drinks but we did not go there for dinner again. Private beach in hut-area was excellent.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Stay in the garden bangalo. Was very clean and spacious. Great bed my GF and I slept like a babys. The beatch is very nice. You will need a scooter if you want to go around the island.

1.0 Poor
Pros: Absolutely nothing to like about this resort
Cons: The staff were very rude, everything was over priced. The premises were very dirty and not looked after with rubbish everywhere. Breakfast was disgusting and no choice or variety, seriously they have no idea

Cons: No complaints
7.0 Good
Pros: The location is fantastic. Very nice private beach right in front of the hotel. There's also another beach 5min walk from the hotel, so we enjoyed both during our stay. There are restaurants, massage places, Roti (Crape) stand on the beach. The front desk has beach buckets and shovels to lend, which was very nice. The staff was in general nice and polite, some speak decent English.
Cons: As we arrived at the shore by their private speed boat, the guard approached us to ask to pay the entrance fee to the national park. We literally just got off the boat with our backpacks, our daughter's doll in our hands (and still in the water as the boat dropped us off in the water, not at the pier) and he barely spoke English. We'd have appreciated if we could pay the fee at the front desk.

6.7 Good
Pros: Love the location of this hotel, and the staff are very helpful.
Cons: The hotel is totally focussed on dealing with large numbers of day tripper Chinese tourists who arrive early each day ( by 9 am) and completely take over the bar and restaurant area, meaning that guests are unable to have breakfast there, and are woken up early as these groups are VERY loud
8.3 Excellent

5.0 Okay
Pros: The location is basically the only good thing about this hotel
Cons: Lots of mosquitoes, the mattresses are all with broken springs that stuck in your back, the sheets are not clean with holes and stains on them, the doors are so old that you need to use lots of force to open and close them and even when you succeed to close them, there are still holes that remain probably to let the mosquitoes get inside...

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Good Area, Nice pool and nice staff
Cons: AC very noicy in one room
4.6 Okay
Pros: Room smelled like mold so bad, I could hardly breathe in there. Dirty room, bedding was dark grey. Didn’t find any beds bugs, but dark spots in the mattress and dark sheets... Payed for a company to freeze all my luggage when I got home just to be safe. Pool water really salty, mixed with seawater. Location far away from everything, about 3 km to the center. Hard to get taxis. You are not allowed to bring any food or drinks from outside the hotel, or you have to pay 1000tb fine. When checked in they tried to have me pay extra for my child, even though in booking it said that the price includes everything. Staff was nice. Overall way overpriced for what you get.
7.0 Good
Pros: Was lovely to have so much room for a very good price - bedroom, living room and bathroom. The 2 pools were lovely and so warm. Staff pretty friendly and responsive. Off the main road, so quiet. Fairly peaceful in the evenings (apart from one night when some people had a late night gathering on the roof). Had a nice feel to the hotel although quite a few rough edges.
Cons: The food was good but expensive. The wifi signal was poor - they were very good and moved us to a new room with better signal, but in general it wasn't great and hard to work on it. The nearest beach that they point you to as the Pandora beach has quite a lot of litter on it. (Koh samet in general had a lot of litter unfortunately)
7.9 Good
Pros: Swimming pool was nice.
Cons: Rooms could have been a little bigger and not so many tv channels. Sofa not so comfortable

Scooter rental shop was right next door, which was great too. Food at the restaurant was tasty, but there are great restaurants all along the island.
Cons: Everything was super nice, so If i really had to nitpick i would say that a new coat of varnish around the hotel would spruce it up really nicely. But that is really nitpicking.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's really beautiful!
Cons: The only disappointment was being charged almost 2.000 baht for a bottle of wine that we later found in every supermarket for 350!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beach was beautiful and we almost always had it to ourselves. Travelling into the hotel by boat, we saw many locations with very crowded beaches, but the beach at this location was clear and empty most of our visit. Having our own pool at our room was also a treat and worth the cost. The breakfast buffet each morning had everything we needed. There was a cook for omelettes, bacon and other meats, fruit and deli meat/cheese choices, etc... All very good! The staff here also tend to you constantly, very nice! When we traveled to dinner, they picked us up in a golf cart. When we sat in the beach chairs they showed up with a bucket of ice and water bottles. They have scheduled hours for bringing fruit, ice cream, and afternoon tea to guests. The person I was travelling with had a birthday during our trip and the hotel showed up with a birthday cake for her. Wonderful service!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The beach is unbeatable, it is almost like a private beach. The team is really professional and make their best effort to ensure your comfort. Nice layout of room. The food is good, especially the seafood buffet with fire show, worth to try.
Cons: We stayed in room 109 next to the main pool, it is convenient as we have kids with us, yet lack of privacy if it is for couple.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Surrounded environment with beautiful scenery. Friendly staffs with service minded by nature.
Cons: Foods are not delicious and less variety/quality comparing with pricing. Some facilities in villa need to renovate such bathroom, bathtub.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful location. Very clean. Wonderful landscaping. Brilliant staff. Excellent accommodation. It really is difficult to find any negatives. It is a very expensive resort, but I do consider that you get the exclusivity and value for the money.
Cons: Cannot think of a single negative.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Perfect welcome at Jadet Pier, and very smooth transfer to the island (and back to the mainland). Amazing private beach, crystal clear water just like in a swimming pool. The beach was cleaned constantly. Our beach villa was spacious and cozy. The staff were absolutely amazing, Thai friendliness/service at its best, one of the best experiences we have ever had in this regard. The GM is around all the time and often talks with the guests, which is uncommon and we appreciated it. We loved the fruit, ice cream and afternoon tea served daily from 1PM to 5PM. Breakfast was good. If one needs total relaxation, this is the perfect resort, as it is very quiet and peaceful.
Cons: Unfortunately, there were sand flies and sea lice during the last 3-4 days of our stay. We have experienced worse, but it was still annoying. The biggest downside for us was the food served for dinner, we thought the quality was average, and definitely expected more from such an incredible resort. At least they serve small complimentary appetizers before the meal that are delicious.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful clean beach, turquoise warm sea, great pool at just the right temperature, gym, well equipped thatched beach villa, excellent spa, amazing staff ! Complementary fruit and ice cream and afternoon tea didn’t need a lunch !
Cons: My only slight grumble was that there wasn’t enough entertainment and the excellent entertainment which we did see was from 7pm and only lasted 30-45mins. We were back in the villa for 8.30pm which was a bit too early, even for us who were there to relax. From past experiences at other similar venues the entertainment would start after dinner about 8.30pm. Also live music in the dining room at lunch and dinner would give it more atmosphere.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location, perfect service, perfect resort, everything is perfect, the general manager was extremely friendly and welcoming. Will be back definitely again next year.
Cons: Nothing to dislike.
6.3 Good
Pros: nice environment Nice complimentary fruits and afternoon tea Great beach and water activities

7.5 Good
Pros: Location is great for quiet holiday
Cons: Live music every night- it was very noisyl
7.9 Good
Pros: We truly enjoyed our stay here! All of the staff were very friendly, looking up from the beach the property looks really spectacular, the beach itself is perfect (and the nicest on the island), the location is probably the best on the island all in all, evening ambiance and performances in restaurant and bar are awesome, good strong coffee with breakfast, buffet breakfast included with stay. Great place to unwind, swim, soak up sun & sand & salt water.
Cons: On first impression we were a bit uncertain about things... parts of the property are very run down. All of our sheets were worn, torn, and bloodstained, deck furniture was filthy & broken. A lot of attention is put into the restaurant and beach area but the rooms themselves need some love. All the same, we had a fantastic time in the end, as we hardly spent anytime indoors, and we would return. The restaurant was pretty pricey - we probably would have spent a lot more time and money there had the prices been a little lower.
7.0 Good
Pros: The situation of the resort on the beach was lovely to wake up to the sound of the sea.
Cons: The very uncomfortable beds, place could be a bit cleaner in bungalows & resort, drive to hotel very uncomfortable on un even dirt track.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beach is beautiful and secluded. The owner and staff are friendly and very accommodating. The food is delicious and no gta shows re entertaining.

2.0 Mediocre
Pros: the only thing that was nice was the beach.
Cons: we booked a room with twin beds with payment in advance, but the room they gave us was really small. in the description they say it is 24m² but i can for sure say it was way smaller than that! Also when we arrived they asked us to give them 1000bath as a deposit, this wasnt written anywhere in the link of the hotel. when we arrive we were so hungry we just left our luggages in the hotel room and went to eat, without checking the room first. at our return i wanted to take a shower but saw in the wc that someone clearly peed in out bathroom. the pee was there and the smell was atrocious. also we found ants in the bathroom. the girl at the reception was very rude and tell us to wait for someone to clean it! we were tired and just wanted to take a shower and rest but they tell us to just wait? i asked for a changing of room ASAP! i dont have the pics with me actually cuz it was so disgusting. i work as a receptionist too and i know for sure this kind of things CANT happen at all! and in the worse case scenario you HAVE to take resposability ASAP and not tell your costumers to wait!! they dont organize anything in the evening and the drinks there were so expensive! it just made me so mad to know they pretend not to understand english when clients complains.

Cons: There was nothing not to like
7.9 Good
Pros: Location is great, breakfast have a lot of choice
Cons: Two different buildings one very new and designed second one a bit old and noisy.
3.0 Mediocre
Cons: We felt deceived, when we booked we thought we were getting a cabin on the beach , when we arrived we were shown our accomodation and it was a room in a building back from the beach. And we had to pay a lot more to upgrade to a beachfront cabin. We felt it was really overpriced and not good value for the money . It was the most expensive place to stayed at in over a month of being in Thailand. There are parties from near by venues that have loud music playing.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Verry clean, supergood beds, friendly staff, few meters to beach, and quiet Would deff be back!

Price/Value outstanding!! Highly recommended. you don’t feel the tourists from the main beach. The amazing, quite and paradise like beaches are south of Koh Samet. Get a scooter, worth it.
Cons: No complains!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: This is an absolute gem for the price. Rooms are simple but large and very clean with some lovely touches, and the resort area is private with a lovely private (stony) beach to sit and have a drink away from the louder main beach. Very conveniently situated - walking distance to the town with plenty of eating options, and the main beach. Also the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful and helped us out with several things while we stayed there including confirming our onwards travel in Thai.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's really beautiful!
Cons: The only disappointment was being charged almost 2.000 baht for a bottle of wine that we later found in every supermarket for 350!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The beach was beautiful and we almost always had it to ourselves. Travelling into the hotel by boat, we saw many locations with very crowded beaches, but the beach at this location was clear and empty most of our visit. Having our own pool at our room was also a treat and worth the cost. The breakfast buffet each morning had everything we needed. There was a cook for omelettes, bacon and other meats, fruit and deli meat/cheese choices, etc... All very good! The staff here also tend to you constantly, very nice! When we traveled to dinner, they picked us up in a golf cart. When we sat in the beach chairs they showed up with a bucket of ice and water bottles. They have scheduled hours for bringing fruit, ice cream, and afternoon tea to guests. The person I was travelling with had a birthday during our trip and the hotel showed up with a birthday cake for her. Wonderful service!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The beach is unbeatable, it is almost like a private beach. The team is really professional and make their best effort to ensure your comfort. Nice layout of room. The food is good, especially the seafood buffet with fire show, worth to try.
Cons: We stayed in room 109 next to the main pool, it is convenient as we have kids with us, yet lack of privacy if it is for couple.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Surrounded environment with beautiful scenery. Friendly staffs with service minded by nature.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful location. Very clean. Wonderful landscaping. Brilliant staff. Excellent accommodation. It really is difficult to find any negatives. It is a very expensive resort, but I do consider that you get the exclusivity and value for the money.
Cons: Cannot think of a single negative.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Perfect welcome at Jadet Pier, and very smooth transfer to the island (and back to the mainland). Amazing private beach, crystal clear water just like in a swimming pool. The beach was cleaned constantly. Our beach villa was spacious and cozy. The staff were absolutely amazing, Thai friendliness/service at its best, one of the best experiences we have ever had in this regard. The GM is around all the time and often talks with the guests, which is uncommon and we appreciated it. We loved the fruit, ice cream and afternoon tea served daily from 1PM to 5PM. Breakfast was good. If one needs total relaxation, this is the perfect resort, as it is very quiet and peaceful.
Cons: Unfortunately, there were sand flies and sea lice during the last 3-4 days of our stay. We have experienced worse, but it was still annoying. The biggest downside for us was the food served for dinner, we thought the quality was average, and definitely expected more from such an incredible resort. At least they serve small complimentary appetizers before the meal that are delicious.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful clean beach, turquoise warm sea, great pool at just the right temperature, gym, well equipped thatched beach villa, excellent spa, amazing staff ! Complementary fruit and ice cream and afternoon tea didn’t need a lunch !
Cons: My only slight grumble was that there wasn’t enough entertainment and the excellent entertainment which we did see was from 7pm and only lasted 30-45mins. We were back in the villa for 8.30pm which was a bit too early, even for us who were there to relax. From past experiences at other similar venues the entertainment would start after dinner about 8.30pm. Also live music in the dining room at lunch and dinner would give it more atmosphere.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location, perfect service, perfect resort, everything is perfect, the general manager was extremely friendly and welcoming. Will be back definitely again next year.
Cons: Nothing to dislike.

4.0 Okay
Pros: great location, very quiet. Amazing beach
Cons: old infrastructure, not tidy. The great location ensure a continuous flux of tourists so the hosts don't seem to care too much about providing a quality service
7.0 Good
Pros: It was ok... I’d read previous reviews and knew that the location would be amazing (it was) and that the accommodation would be pretty basic (it was) The staff were quiet but not surly. The food was pretty good. We enjoyed our stay, but it was only when we decided to move to the Samed Villas on the other side of the island where the room was the same price that we appreciated what a difference a bit more effort and care made to every aspect of our stay. More welcoming rooms, attractive restaurant, lush vegetation, good wifi in the rooms. Ko Samet was lovely but we won’t stay at Lima Coco next time.

Cons: Type of the room - very small and dark
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The A1 bungalow has a very nice view to the sea, the restaurant also. Quiet location.
Cons: Some boardwalk needs repair.
7.0 Good
Pros: The breakfast was basic but acceptable. The location is great, the accomodation is good and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The only negative points at the moment are the ongoing building works. These in themselves would not be a problem but the access path is an absolute mess with no effort made by the builders to even hide the mess and rubbish let alone clear it away. An effort by the builders to keep the site tidy would be a great improvement.
Cons: As above - merely the mess which the building team works in and leaves scattered beside the paths. So a temporary hiccough, hopefully.
7.5 Good
Pros: Good location at the end of the beach over looking the bay. Pool with a sea view and plenty of deck chairs and seats in the pool area
Cons: Bathrooms not particular nice. Food at the restaurant was average.
