I came to Tao Thong Villa II not announced and got the last bungalow. Unfortunately not one of the fantastic, wood and cheaper bungalows - that are a bit more isolated and have a stunnig view of the bay - but the more expensive concrete one. Not only the view was not as stunning (partly covered by another building in... More

It was the second time I came here, this time we were here for 4 nights. It was a great experience once again! The family is very friendly and makes you feel welcome. The food is good, fresh ingredients and a nice Thai spice. The place is surrounded by a reef on all sides which can be explored with Tao... More

It's funny how a location can stay the same, but the person who visits it can change. I first visited Tao Thong Villa (TTV) in 2006 on a solo backpacking trip. My first memory was arriving via long boat, only to find a fellow traveler catching squid from just under the restaurant. I stayed there for at least 5-6 days,... More

The place is hidden and beautiful, but the owner was very unfriendly and we have 2 rats in our bungalow (and no food inside!). They lost parts of my laundry. After our visit my friend and i had gastro-intestinal disease, 6 weeks long.

We really loved our stay at the Tao Thong Villa. The bungalows are located in a great spot, and the family that runs them is really lovely. If you want to stay in the heart of the action, then this is not the spot for you, as it is about a twenty minute ride away from the main beaches. Also,... More

Well it took a while writing this review as we're still travelling but we stayed at the tao tong villa in august 2013 for nearly 3 weeks with one break between! On Koh Tao is permanent peak-season so it's hard to find an affordable place for backpackers especially if you want have seaview and staying right on the beach! So... More

That place is the worst ever. The owner is a very strange guy who gets agressive and unfriendly when u ask him about how to use the 'toilet' and other normal questions. The bungalow was disgusting. Very dirty and much to small. no furniture, no toiletpaper...and the bed...horrible. the badroom never got cleaned i guess. The view is great...but that... More
