We had AC villa (closer to the road rather than beach) but price was good for us 2000bhat in February. Wifi didnt work in the room. Inside the room is nice, basic, safe box and shampoo with bath gel was provided. Its in Sairee village, many places to eat around. Restaurant staff is not friendly. Breakfast is VERY basic.

The Sea Shell resort is an ideal place to stay, very central for Sairee beach. Nice swimming pool and pretty relaxed setting too. Rooms were good enough and staff friendly but communication was difficult at times. Can only get Wifi in lobby which was a pain sometimes but not a big deal. Phil

I stayed here for 2 nights to begin with as part of a G adventures trip. The only good thing about the room was the shower! The beds were rock solid, the wifi didn't work in there, you couldn't have the air con lower than 22 degrees or it would break and there was only one very dim light so... More

I went for 4 nights between January 6th to 10th and had a great stay there. Very centrally located in the middle of Koh Tao. The premises are very nice, rooms cleaned regularly and aircon was great. The pool was nice although the jacuzzi wasn't very warm.

Good location across the road from the beach and close to shops and restaurants. There is a spa there with the same prices to everywhere else and the older lady there gives the best massage ever!! Room was a good size and close to the pool.

The resort is centrally located in beautiful Koh Tao, premises and pool are very nice. Breakfast at the restaurant is nice and good service, but we had much better Thai dishes elsewhere in Koh Tao. Anyhow I would never stay with them again because of the terrible reception experience. The female receptionists were ok, but the one guy who apparently... More

This resort has an amazing central location on Koh Tao; however, it has by far the WORST staff & customer service I've ever encountered. Ive never been treated with such disrespect and Ill will by members of the hospitality industry. I want to preface this review by stating 2 things: Koh Tao was my final destination of 2.5 week trip... More

The Seashell resort was nice, but there were a few things which could be improved. I did like restaurant and especially the BBQ with vinaigrette coleslaw and a baked potato, which was on the beach (and gave a 20% discount to guests between 17:00 - 20:00). I also liked the complimentary breakfast in the same restaurant in the morning. Also... More

The BBQ in the restaurant is really good, served with potato and lettuce. Great quality and fresh seafood! 5pm until 8pm 20%discount on the whole bill, definitely worth a look. Fruit shakes are really good, little but more expensive then street shakes but better!

the location is great... but watch out for the rooms... i chose a budget room thinking that it would be better a budget in a 'delux-ish' resort rather than a superior room in a lesser hotel... WRONG! the reception is a almost next to the beach and the complex goes all the way back to the main (and ONLY) road... More
