I went to Koh Tao with a friend and we stayed in Captain Nemo for 8 nights, very nice experience. The guesthouse is simple, yet has everything to make it cozy and home-like. Many choices of restaurant within 3 minutes of walk and around 15 minutes of walk to the main beach. The area is close to the pier and... More

We stayed here for 6 nights recently, and can honestly say that it's the best guesthouse we've encountered so far on our S.E. Asian travels. Room was excellent, with fridge, water, tea, coffee, a/c, tv,DVD player etc. & the owners Phillipe & Som we're very friendly, they lent us dvds, beach towels, & helped to book our onward tickets to...

Captain Nemo was a comfortable affordable place to stay on Koh Tao, the owners very friendly and helpful. The only downside to Koh Tao is the ridiculously expensive taxis from Sairee beach back to the boat pier. Maybe nemos could organise a transfer car or something, which I'm sure people would be happy to use and pay for, as the... More

A friend and I stayed in Captian Nemo for five nights and we truly enjoyed our stay. The rooms are nice and clean, with a bathroom, wifi, air conditioning, a fridge and a safe.
