The accommodations were basic but very peaceful. Baan Kao Bay is away from Sairee Beach and all the Parties. It is tranquil with the High Bar just across the street up on the mountain. The views are amazing of the bay. just next to the big Fish is a great little bar on the beach playing reggae music. The bartenders... More

We stayed for 2 nights and had no problems at all. The staff were friendly and kind and the accomodation was clean, cheap and on the beach. We came straight off the boat and found the huts on arrival so didn't read the reviews thank god as I would never have booked it otherwise and it was perfect for us... More

ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING. We had to stay one extra night as we were both still... More

Found this place when going south on koh tao, and it looked really nice by the beach. Ran away in the middle of the night because the bed was crawling with fleas. Got our money back though, even if they were veeery surprised about the bed bugs (yeah right) Don't stay here!

We had a room with AC overlooking the ocean and paid 1000 baht per night. We stayed for 4 nights. Nice room with an amazing view. The garden is very cozy and romantic, perfect for couples and families. On koh tao I think this is one of the cozier and more quiet places still located on a bigger beach. Really... More

!!!!!DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!! I have never had such an awful experience on a holiday! We spent one night here and it made the rest of our two week holiday ruined. When we arrived we were shown to our room, we paid for two nights up front. We dumped our bags and went straight out onto the beach! We spent... More

I stayed for a month here. Two days b4 I was due to leave, they stole several thousand Bhats from my room. When I protested, the lady at the reception would not even listen and insulted me! I reported them to the police

This place was totally perfect for me. I took an air con room which was 1000 bhat per night (room 11). It has the most wonderful views across the bay and is in the centre of the beach which was perfect. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Hot shower, air con and fan and a TV....

We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed the lounge chairs and somewhat secluded feel of this spot along the water. Our room was basic but adequate for budget travelers. Price seemed like a decent value. Not a fan of the staff or the deposit policy, but we had no trouble and would return.
