The hotel is only 3 min walk from the beach, so there was no noise from the bars and restaurants. Reception staff exceptionally kind, rooms are massive, spa was wonderful and overall it was a very clean and nice place to relax. Only a less positive note for the restaurant, the breakfast was terrible, kind of western wannabe food, but... More

Good hotel and would stay here again. Great location right near all the little stalls on the walk to the beach. Room was big and clean with good towels etc. Service in the restaurant can be a little slow so be mindful if getting 'a quick bite before heading to the airport'.

Great location, with clean rooms and friendly staff. I stayed in a twin room, it was a good size with a balcony. Decor is a little dated but it's fine and the pool area was also nice. It's reasonable accommodation for a reasonable price.

Great staff and facilities. Spacious rooms, bathrooms a little on the simple side. Cheap in-hotel laundry. Good wifi. Breakfast pretty average, though they make your eggs the way you like and there is fresh fruit and really good tea. If I was to choose again, I would have wanted to stay on the beach. Koh Tao is the most amazing... More

I stayed here for three nights as a single traveler and found it a great spot. The staff were waiting at the pier when I arrived and once at the hotel got checked in and to my room in no time. The room was very spacious with a huge double bed, very comfy. My only complaint was the lack of... More

Good location, 5 min stroll to the beach, pool was ok but not the cleanest! Breakfast was decent Rooms were good, however they need to sort the door locks out, some days it took over 30 mins to actually open the door, this is no lie! I would recommend the Sairee Cottage Restaurant, its on the main strip, we ate... More
