We stayed for 5 nights at this resort and had a fantastic time. The staff are so friendly, helpful and genuinely interested in what you have planned. They organised a full days boat trip around the island in a long tail boat which was so much fun! The resort has it's own section of beach in front of the restaurant... More

We were able to walk off the ferry right up to the resort (3 minutes). When we arrived the staff were very friendly, gave us great advice about what to do on the island. Our bungalow was up the hill, a good bit of exercise to get on a vacation spent mostly laying around! Our stay was lovely, really have... More

Stayed in a bungalow for 4 with a sea view, which was a bit of walk up a steep hill, but manageable. Bungalow was good with comfy beds. A lot of bugs but was to be expected. Mosquito nets where provided. The resort was in a brilliant location and the beach was perfect! Got a taxi from the port when... More

I absolutely loved my stay at Koh Tao Royal Resort. Sadly I could only stay for 2 nights but wish I could have stayed longer. I paid about £30 (1500thb) each night but the views and hospitality were worth it. As soon as I arrived I was shown a map and recommendations for beaches to see for snorkelling or good... More

The best thing about the Koh Tao Royal Resort is its fantastic staff. They were so friendly and helpful. I arrived one day late due to a series of missed flights and they were kind enough not to charge me for the missed night. The food at the restaurant is really good and if you are lucky you might strike... More

We didn't stay here by as we stayed nearby we tried it for dinner, we went back 3 times in 10 days! That end of Mae had is so nice, away from the noisy piers. The staff are nice, the English guy & his wife that run it are really friendly & attentive to your needs. The food is tasty... More

Great small hotel on an amazing quiet part of the island. Bungalows are rustic and beautiful and the owners are just the most amazing and helpful people. It has great beach with one of the best snorkeling spots we have visited on this trip. Can't recommend enough.

Weve just finished travelling and this hotel was the highlight of our trip :). The staff were more than friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. They really made it a very relaxed experience! The Hut we were in was lovely, 2 floors, a double bed downstairs and 4 single beds upstairs. 2 balconys and a very large... More

The location just off the pier at the beach is great. Relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant was ok, unfortunately the grill was broken during our stay so the barbecue was not available. The bungas was quite small inside. Had a "rustiqe" feel about them. Our bunga, a big family one, was situated at the topp of the hill. It was a... More
