All the huts are unique and individual; there is plenty of space for the kids to run around and lots of wildlife which was fun; the beach is glorious and the restaurants nearby are nice although no real gastronomic delights. a fun experience.

The resort is a little aged and service level sucks! Multiple emails were sent during the booking on some questions but none was replied! Feedback to the manager during check in and She showed a darkened face and brush it off! I hope the management have a word with the lady manager on her attitude. Food was bad and expensive....

I've booked 2 rooms for my family. First the lady at the check in wanted to gave us two rooms totally opposite of each other in the resort. Finally we got the 2 rooms at the 4th floor (deluxe hillside). Outside overall maintenance is not so good than downstairs. The rooms are nice, with a private terrasse. First view is...

I would recommend to take a bungalo with a beach view rather than pay more at Vimarn. First Ao Prao is located at the end of the beach so there are no cars passing on the road, second Vimarn doesn't have rooms directly on the beach, third breakfast in my opinion is slightly better. Pool is great, dinners with table...

It is a philosophically discussion, if this place is too expensive or the quality is too low for the price. We stayed a week in the Ao Prao Resort on the island Ko Samet. The beach and the hotel with the several restaurants are nice. The staff is helpful and also nice. The rooms are big and OK but need...

Just finished four nights here in the Horizon Suite (room 100) and we had a lovely stay. The hotel is set in lovely gardens full of butterflies, little lizards and other wildlife which really make for a special tropical setting. The beach is really nice and although I had read reviews about rubbish on the beach we saw nothing major...

We had a great time at Ao Prao Resort. The room was lovely and we had a great view of the sea. The staff were friendly and professional. It was quiet and relaxing. The pool and beach areas were nice and the massage was excellent. We will definitely return to this resort.

Take the shuttel to the other side of the island for some people watching. Or just stay here, have a massage or chill on the beach. Great service and ok accommodation. Really friendly staff as always in Thailand.

It is a beautiful and tiny island! The resort is set along the sea, with hut type apartments throughout. The facilities were very simple and sufficient, and the sea was just a few steps away from our door, the water was beautifully clear and very calm. They had an assortment of activities to do there and we did some canoeing....

After a couple of minutes some people arrives. We stayed at Lima coco but i heard the food is not so good as breeze. The price is just right...
