What we say: 4 stars

Sam's House has rows of log cabin-style rooms perched over a swamp. Though the reed-choked water is attractive, the half-sunken fountains that litter the grounds and the metal catwalk that leads between rooms spoil the scenery. With bamboo walls, lots of windows and small terraces, the cheapest huts are fairly pleasant and mostly clean, though bathrooms are on the grungy side. Larger wooden cabins are also available and while the family rooms represent solid value, the double is overpriced. Sam's also has a handful of newer concrete air-con rooms tightly packed around a garden out front near reception. Those in the concrete A-frames come with beds and nothing else, and are quite uninspiring. The others are a little better, but not worth the money. Pricier family rooms in the main building are similarly lacking in character and value. WiFi is free and the signal is strong throughout the grounds. Staff however are not too friendly.
