The only reason we stayed at this place was to do diving at the nearby school who suggested the resort. Let's be honest the term resort is used a bit loosely. The first day we arrived we had to wait for someone to attend to the reception , upon check in we were given no useful information and no assistance... More

Where do I start?? We got conned into getting two double beds when one double or two singles were enough for two of us. Lying by omission. When we knew for sure that a double bed for half the price had become available we were not allowed to change rooms. Staff are very rude and unhelpful. Everything is a very... More

We stayed at Family Tanote Bay Resort for 2 nights. You can only reach the hotel by pick up taxi as the bay is on the eastern coast of Ko Tao. Also, you have no chance to climb the steep streets to the hotel unless you want to do a 2 hour hike. The location is beautiful, but this does... More

Excellent location for chilling out away from the crowds. Although the roads to get there involve a massive steep hill , quite a testing walk/scooter ride back to town. Take a look around the bungalows before you sign up so you can choose the best one! Some have incredible views over the bay. The food at the hotel restaurant is... More

I read some negative reviews about the service, but it seems like they got it straightened out. People were helpful and friendly and no problems. If you are looking for the white glove treatment go somewhere else, but for the price it was great. Tanote Bay is a fantastic location if you want peace and quiet and a super snorkel... More

Dear travellers, Having immediately fled from koh tao's chalok bay right after my arrival I settled down in the tanote bay. I cannot fully agree with the other reviewers who complained about tanote family. My little bungalow up the hill is extremely beautiful (nice wood work and new moskito nets in the windows etc.) And has a superb view. I... More

I've been to Thailand from north to south and various islands on 6 different trips, and in about 100 different hotels, and never have I stayed in a place as bad as this one. I'm happy with basic accommodation, but there are limits, and this place crossed the line. Bed was ridden with ants, the toilet still had the last... More

My partner and I came to koh tao for the ending to our holiday in Thailand. We have stayed in basic places before and never minded..but this was terrible and expensive. The customer service is the worst I've seen. Rude and very lazy. They said we could only book two nights minimum. The room was dirty, infested with ants. The... More

Moved to Tanote family bay for few days, at the begining i thought it's the perfect place: beautiful simple bungalows on the bay, great beach and quite atmoshpere. What i wasn't expecting was the worst service you can dream of. And it's just the waiter that doesn't give a care if you need something or even just smile and say... More

I love camping and I love roughing it - but I have to draw the line somewhere. I tried to find the charm in this place and appreciate the Mighty Mouse trash can or the weird bathroom mat with a big eared dog picture ... it just never happened. Most of these comments have to do with the quality of... More
