I booked two poolside rooms on their resort website in april this year, for our trip in july. I needed to contact the resort about something and got no replies from any of my e-mails. When we arrived i found that the two poolside villas were indeed next to the pool, but you had to share your smal varander with... More

Stayed for 2 nights with friends in January. This hotel is lot more luxurious than the beach huts. It is very modern, beds are big and comfortable, rooms are spacious. Food was nice in the hotel but there was also plenty of restaurants a short walk away. The seashell diving school is attached to the hotel which was convenient. Would... More

We stayed at Seashell resort as we were tired and it was the first decent hotel we found while walking. We had to pay (a lot!) of extra for air con room and too be fair it wasn't worth the money. The room has pretty much no lights (just one light bulb above the 2 beds) so it makes it... More

This is the first time I write I review but after the terrible days I spent in this resort I felt I had to... The staff is terrible, they just wander around eatung, drinking, playing with their mobiles and sleeping in the premises all day. If you ask for anything it feels like you are bothering them. No customer service... More

Really bad hotel, If I went into detail I'd probably run out of space, but below is a brief synopsis of the disaster area that is Seashells Resort. Totally apathetic staff, guests just seem to be an inconvenience. Absolutely no customer service. The hotel tries to illegally keep your passport. (For those of you who don't know, Thai law requires... More

We booked a beach front ocean view room. Actually it was not "ocean view" but I'd say "pool view and a little bit of ocean view" They told us by email that they'd put a mosquito net cause my girlfriend is allegic to mosquito bites but they did not and they did not provide any explanation... breackfast was quite good...

Very central to all the main activity in ko Tao... Room we stayed in just had a fan but I visited a friends room with air and would recommend paying that bit extra to get the air con. Nice pool, staff where ok. Lovely restaurant right opposite. Wifi in main lobby good, wifi in rooms not so good.

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. We stayed in the superior garden view room. It's definitely worth while spending a little extra for the better room because ours was beautiful! We'd so much space!! Lovey bathroom!! Best shower in Thailand!!!! Excellent location, right by the beach and close to excellent bars and restaurants. We loved it here!!!

We have stayed at the Seashell Resort three times in the past 4 years. Last year was disappointing but minimally bearable. Our decision to stay at the Seashell this year was part based on hope it would be better than last and no little amount of laziness in my final decision to book again. It took over 3 hours to...
