Stayed for 1 night November 2014 and was sorry that we couldn't stay longer. Still have lots of good memories, snorkelling by the wreck was good. We were upgraded to a room with an outdoor jacuzzi which was amazing! Owner and staff very friendly and helpful. Would defo stay again if every back on ko Tao

I'll begin with a few comments about Koh Tao and backpacking in general. When you are travelling in Thailand you have to accept that it is not Europe, it is not the U.S. You go to Koh Tao to experience Koh Tao not some sanitised version of a Thai island. I thought the Royal Resort was excellent. It has a... More

Rustic bungalow accommodation set in stunning jungle surroundings. Very friendly staff, 3 lads work in the restaurant and are very funny and friendly could not do enough to help. Looking forward to... More

Arrived in Koh Tao for our fifth vacation to this enjoyable resort in April 2015. One of the benefits and reasons for returning to this beautiful resort is friendly staff, the beach is breathtaking, calm with crystal clear water….weather is consistent with a moderate trade wind with temperatures ranging between 29 - 31 degrees C. Small fish was spotted while... More

When i contacted the hotel regarding a small issue with my booking they did not respond, as it was getting nearer to my check in date I messaged them... More

We stayed in a basic wooden fan room for 3 nights & this is one of the most idyllic locations I've stayed in right on a quiet stretch of beach which is perfect for swimming & snorkelling in the warm crystal clear seas. Rooms are basic & I was quite glad of the mosquito net provided, they do get a... More

Friendly staff who made us feel very welcome from the start. The property offered fabulous beachfront accommodation which was basic but ideal for the location. Although tranquil and secluded the property was convenient for all amenities.

There is ongoing construction in the "resort", if we can call it such cause it is really just a bunch of average bungalows on stilts and a restaurant that closes so early that you need to go elsewhere if u wanted to have dinner at 7:30pm. (At least that was my experience at the beginning of my stay. I gave... More

Yes we are sorry for the construction at this time of year. I have spoken to the Owner of the resort next door and he has assured me he workers will only start from 9am. You wanted me to tell them to stop all together until you woke up at 10am or 11am. As for my attitude towards you.... You... More
