What we say: 3.5 stars

When we met the (apparent) manager at Sea Breeze's convenience store / restaurant / internet cafe / reception area, his cheerful response when we asked to see a room was, “Yes you can look, I have many bungalow, many colour”. He wasn't kidding. What feels like an endless barrage of brightly coloured rooms takes up a huge area next to the main road and just beyond the northern end of Ao Phai. We've rarely seen such an eclectic mix of rooms. Some are in attached motel-style rows, but most are free-standing. Some are pink, some yellow, others cherry red, lime green or royal blue. A few brown and yellow ones seem to have a non-intentional 1970s disco theme. Some are all of the above, with primary colours splashed in absurd patterns that reminded us of finger-painting in pre-school. Some rooms are big, others are small. Some are made of wood and perched high above the ground. Some appear to be relatively new while others seem like they could fall over at the next, well, sea breeze. The ones we peeked inside looked a bit run-down and not exactly sparkling clean, but for the prices, it's arguably the best budget value on Samet. Some have air-con, hot water and TVs while others have fans and cold water -- you really just have to look around until you find one that works. Note that during our September visit, the aforementioned manager quoted us some super low rates, though we imagine what you actually pay will depend on his mood. Walk-ins only.
