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...

I am a very frequent visitor to Koh Tao and I have stayed in all types of accommodations of all price ranges. I thought that Seashell was not too bad. Location is great, rooms were comfortable, spacious and the place seems very secure (safety box available). A/C unit broke at one point but it was fixed in a relatively timely... More

We stayed in the Coconut Village area of the hotel, which disappointingly was across the main road and through some scrubland. The hotel itself seems very disjointed, and it was a nightmare checking into our room. The pool area was lovely, although the pool walls need a good scrub, and it can be a bit annoying having the pool taken... More

I liked the location and I think that the location is amazing. It is close to the beach and to the main shopping area and restaurants, but still far enough to suffer from too much noise from the bars. I did not like the quality of the water in the pool and they could do better to keep the water... More

This hotel was booked for us as part of a group tour we were part of. Our first impression of the hotel when we arrived was fair, and the rooms at first glance seemed very nice. But when we put our bags down and had a good look around we noticed a lot of dead bugs, bird poo on one... More

The resort is in a very central. The staff behind the desk are not very organized and so check in took a very long time even though we had pre-booked. I wouldn't stay in Coconut Village again, although slightly cheaper it is not situated in the resort and is in a very unkempt area. The bungalows are clean and exactly... More

Where to start! We were staying in the coconut village area which is very misleading as is a 10 minute walk from the resort in a construction site across the road. The bungalow we were brought to was beyond filthy. The floors were coated in dust, there were half a dozen dead cockroaches in the bathroom and rodent poo all... More
