We stayed here over Christmas in a hillside fan bungalow. The room was nice - cosy, clean and we always had hot water. If you'd like your room cleaned then just hand your key into the reception. The mosquito net had a few holes in it but it still did the job. The wifi signal was weak in the room,... More

I have stayed at this place 5 times since 2002 and every time it's a wonderful experience. The people who run it are so kind and considerate of their guests. The only reason I don't give it a five star rating is because of the music. This complaint goes for every other single place on all of the islands. Stop... More

Very friendly and helpful staff; clean, comfortable and spacious rooms; great food that was very reasonably priced and a large Chang was only 90 bat. It's very close to the pier (convenient but you can hear some of the ferry traffic in the morning) and is right on the beach. We stayed for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our experience.

this hotel is way to over priced, the rooms and hallways smell like moth balls. The bathroom walls were dripping with something white (not sure what it is). There is no breakfast included and there was constantly loud banging noises from the hallways. The standard room was 2000 bht...got it down to 1500 but it's still over priced. Also their... More

We find your review a little bit inaccurate to say the least. Are you sure you are writing a review for our Resort ?? We are not a hotel, we are a RESORT and have bungalows not rooms and hallways. We have never included breakfast in our bungalow pricing because the A-la-Carte menu has many food items which can suit... More

My boyfriend and I are finishing our 2,5 month round trip on Ko Tao and stayed in Royal Resort for two nights. We moved because of the fact we wanted to see a few different parts of the island. The resort is nice, right at the beach. The staff and owner are very friendly and professional. We were staying in... More

Me and my boyfriend stayed two nights in the resort and It was a very good beginning for our vacations. The location is really easy and next to the pier, which was great after a crazy boat drive! As arrived, we could already feel the warmth and care of the manager, Ms Prawaleen. The food was incredible to delight our... More

I stayed on Koh Tao with 4 friends. Although we did not sleep in the resort, we spent most of our time at Koh Tao Royal resort. Paweelin and Steven, the owners of the resort, are incredibly hospitable and made us feel at home constantly. They both work behind the reception and in the restaurant and are therefore constantly in... More

This was our second trip to the island. After the first visit to the Koh Tao Royal Resort, there was only one choice for our accommodation. Steve, Pawleein and the team are fantastic. The resort may not be a 5 star but you certainly get 5 star treatment. The team went above and beyond the call of duty, even spotting... More

After such a long trek from Bangkok we were given such a warm welcome at Royal Resort and we decided to extend our stay here. When we arrived we were provided with a map and the different areas of the island were explained to us, which was very helpful. The bungalows are near to the beach front and very cosy.... More
