The sun umbrella and the sun beds at the swimming pool are broken. The water in the swimming pool very dirty. We had a bungalow-Vila we could hear everything from the room who was next to us. It was awful. The water in the toilet is not flashing easy. If you lose the room card, they charge u 3000bht, so... More

The hotel is nothing special. During check in they charged us 3% more, because our currency wasn't the same. This is completely illegal - it's between them and the bank, but no need for explanation. It has nice location, but it's lack of cleanness. The water in the bathroom is hardly dropping. With one word - you can find the... More

We stayed for 2 night can not complain with the room size as it was big and very comfortable! However the shower floor needs to be scrubbed and the walls mainly in the bathroom were dirty! Staff were friendly, excluding 1 very rude gentleman who told me I am 2,fat that's y Why my snorkeling mask does not fit me!... More

This hotel is in a great location in Koh Tao and it's far enough away from the bars that you can't hear the partying throughout the night. The staff were really friendly from picking us up at the port to our departure to Bangkok. Could not complain about any of them. The two guys (forgot their names) were always joking... More

The reviews on here in my opinion are a little harsh. This is a good mid range budget hotel in central location. We stayed in the garden bungalows which is the cheapest option but do have air con.They are a tad small but enough room for 2 people. Clean, tidy and lovely pool. I thought the staff were friendly and... More

We booked this hotel with short notice originally a garden deluxe bungalow but on arrival the room was very small, dark and with a strong smell of damp. We complained about the room and were moved to a garden view room within the main hotel block. This room did not smell of damp but had air conditioning leaks from the... More

I had read mixed reviews about here, so I was a little cautious. Maybe I am biased because Expedia apparently upgraded my room for me (good old Expedia!). I think where we ended up was a Deluxe garden room, but it was a marvellous room for the price we paid. Big and beautifully furnished, it had a balcony overlooking the... More

Rooms were very small. No real area to unpack your clothes into. Bitten by mosquitoes throughout the night. Air con was a carry on. 2 single beds pushed together with no top mattress preventing arms and legs going between the beds. Pool was a good size. Location was good. Staff were difficult to deal with. Ended up forgetting my passport... More

We stayed 4 nights at seashell to complete our PADI diving course. I'd recommend Koh Tao for some of the clearest diving in the world, and the cheapest! The guys at seashell divers were friendly and very efficient dive instructors. We were booked into a garden fan room (cheapest of the cheap) after requesting a superior garden view, which was...
