We liked the look of this place to eat as it is in a great location so we asked for the price of the red snapper and were told we sell by weight which is a bit unusual for Thailand,we said ok how much for the snapper came in at (normal sort of size) and wait for it ....they wanted... More

Visitied November 2015 The Bungalows are quite nice, but very dirty. We visitied in the off Season which might be one of the reasons. But the Floors and the Bathroom was definitely uncleaned and the Bed was also not clean. We ended up sleeping on Towels with our own blanket. The Location of the Resort is quite nice, and for...

Good wifi, nice location on the beach, nice garden area, near to dive companies, bars and restaurants. No one emptied our bins in the 6nights that we stayed here (despite the island having a sewerage system which requires that you put toilet tissue in the bin) Every time that we visited the reception area/shop it seemed unfriendly, only desperate to...

Resort might be a stretch. Bungalows in courtyard right off the beach is more accurate. Fan and air con available. A fan room was fine in early October. Very basic accommodations but you can't beat the price for being right on the beach. Each room has a porch and you can hear waves crashing from your room. The room smelled... More

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

I didn't read any of the reviews before we stayed here and the first night when i was sick there were cockroaches in the bathroom, huge! then one came underneath the front door and while we were lying in bed a huge one flew into us. 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
