We wandered in here after our journey to koh Tao, tired, but the place looked very nice and well kept from the outside. The pool looks very inviting as well. We booked and paid for one night. Big mistake. The rooms were so filthy we left after one hour - no refund, just grabbed our passports and left. I am... More

We had a look round for quite a while and managed to find this resort. On first impressions it looked alright we aren't very hard to please. The first we went out and the second two we stayed in. The thumping music starting at 7pm and went on till 4am on both nights. I don't mind a bit of music... More

We wandered in here, tired after the journey and, as other people have said, it all looked pretty and nice, so we booked for one night. But on closer inspection, as noted by others, the place is filthy. The floor is dirty - my feet felt dirtier after i had showered - the balcony is covered in dust, leaves, general... More

Spent one night here after finding it on a whim just off the boat. Seems very pretty oh the outside, but upon arrival the staff were dismissive and incompetent to the point of being actively rude, the rooms were mouldy, and it is just off the beaches party area so there was thumping bass and fireworks all night. In the... More

This place appears nice on first glance but do not be fooled! It is by far the worst place I have ever stayed in. Our room was filthy. What appeared to be blood on the curtains and walls. Squashed insects on the walls. There was a disgusting stain on the bed sheet which did not look like it had been... More

The place is good, if you want to party and you dont care if there's few millipedes at the toilet. The Sairee beach biggest party starts every night about 9PM, right in front of the resort, at the beach. If you stay bungalows closer to the village, the noise doesn't hear inside. The pool was good, every now and then... More

Staff are so rude. Rooms are filthy, spiders, cockroaches, and god only know what else! We had 2 power cuts for a long period of time when we approached the staff about it they spoke in Thai and ignored us. We left after one night after paying for more. There are so many beautiful hotels in koh Tao that you... More

A great location for the beach and town but from 1am to 5am, you suffer shouting drunks walking past your room. When you pay, the receptionist scrawls no refunds on the bill(100% upfront) so you are royally screwed from the first night....
