We stayed here for seven nights and had a wonderful time. The resort is in a quiet location and has excellent views of Shark Island and the ocean. We had a premium bungalow and the room was on the small side, but functional. The private terasse with a hammock was great for lazy afternoons. The restaurant served very good food... More

We arrived at the port and were picked up by Sven, one of the hotel managers. He was so friendly and even took us back down to the town so we could rent quads. The room was basic but it added to the charm. And the views were fantastic. Our room had a balcony with a hammock, a double bed... More

We stoped on our way walking to tanote beach from the main city in Koh tao, we had a lovely fruit shake and cofee shake with some nice spring rolls. The view from the top bar is just amazing, you can see the whole bay. We meet the new owners (apparently the one who were rented it before were not... More

We stayed at Sea View 5 nights in August 2014 but would have left before if we hadn't booked in advance. We read some positive reviews before booking and had great expectations but the place was a delusion. It seems that the resort has a new management (a young German guy with a French girl) which is completely unfit to... More

The picture are clearly not what you will find there We were supposed to pay 1200b for a room with aircon and TV, we ended up in a cheap, dirty bungalow, smelly bathroom with no towels, & a broken fan. The 3rd bed, was waiting for us in front of our room, folded. The French girl that did our check... More

After arriving at the resort (15 min drive from the pier) we were greeted by a lovely French lady who was welcoming. However the room we were given was not like the photos on trip advisor, booking.com or their own website! Our room was small (expected) but there was holes in the floor and walls of the hut which was... More

I stayed here for two nights at the beginning of August and absolutely loved everything about the resort. The Bungalow was absolutely beautiful and the view was to die for - both from the restaurant and from the bungalow! it's located in a lovely part of the island, not far from Ao Leuk and some very nice beaches and snorkeling....

The manger in charge of this establishment is extremely unprofessional and clearly incompetent of running a business. My boyfriend and myself are currently travelling around Thailand for 5 weeks and have enjoyed every single second apart from our interaction with Sea View Resort. We only booked Sea View Resort as we extended our stay in Koh Tao and unfortunately couldn't... More

We've been travelling since January staying mostly in budget hotels so we don't expect much but this was by far the worst nightmare ever! We chose the standard room with fan (a very little old one) the bathroom had no door and no flush (seriously at this day and age for a so called 3 star hotel??). The manager Stevo... More
