Booked a one night stay here before arriving to Koh Tao in July. Easy to find once you disembark from the ferry at Mae Haad pier, turn right and keep walking until you eventually arrive at the resort. The staff were very welcoming and we found them to be diligent and courteous in our encounters at reception,the restaurant and the... More

The bungalows are quite nice inside and were cleanish - the sheets and towels had a bit of spots on them. The beach by the hotel is nice although a bit crowded. The sea front restaurant is great to enjoy diner and drinks while watching the sun set. The drawback is the wifi which is only accessible in the restaurant... More

We stayed there for a few nights. +: the staff is very nice, kind. They helped us a lot and were very professional. They tried to do their best for everything. The location is convenient , just near the pier and Mae Had but calm (except the noisy long-tail boats at certain hours). The bungalows are surrounded by a beautiful... More

When we got off the boat at the port in Ko Tao, I didn't realise how close to the bungalows we were. They are about a 5 minute walk away and you can see the beachfront restaurant as you come into the port. It is at the bottom of the beach road and is directly on the beach. There are... More

We've booked this hotel for three nights and were really unhappy with this place! First of all ITS NOT CLEAN!!! Dim light in the bathroom made me feel sick, literally smells like old public restrooms. We've seen cockroach IN OUR BED!!! One of the waiters in the restaurant smells like homeless, seriously, no kidding. The surroundings are very nice, though,... More

We would like to reply to your very unkind review which we think is very cruel and unjustified together with some narrow mindedness. Yes sometimes when people work so hard in these hot climates perhaps somebody would not smell as fresh as when they first showered. You are very cruel in your comments, our staff served you well. You demanded... More

The owners & staff were very friendly and helpfull. The location is great: snorkling straight from the beach (equipment available for a symbolic amount plus free towels), and yet close to the pier. Nice welcome with usefull information to easy explore the Island. Fine bungalows with spacious balcony, good filling breakfast (worthy) etc. The only thing we were negative about... More

We stayed here with our family. Greay resort on a very good location. Close to the harbour, but no nuisance. Friendly and helpful staff. Ask them to organize a private snorkling tour. Cheap and good. We hired one of the larges bungalows with a large shower. They keep it very clean.

Felt so well-rested after 5 nights here! Check-in wasn't supposed to be until 1pm but we got there at 10am, having arrived early on the ferry, and we were able to go into our room an hour later. As soon as we arrived, the woman at the reception desk sat us down and gave us a thorough description of the... More

Stayed here for 5 nights and really enjoyed it. Great spot on the beach away from the main pier and it stays quite quiet. Some nice snorkelling just off the beach and a wreck not too far away - you can hire equipment from reception for 100 baht for your stay. The restaurant is excellent and ate here many times... More
