You will see a severe difference in reviews, those befor the last manager left(Mod) and those since the owners took over. Mod ran the bungalows with a great deal of enthusiasm and true friendship. I would agree that the bungalows are very basic but the views are unbeatable. When Mod ran this place she woukd oranise evenings out where we... More

I forgot to write a review when I stayed in this bungalow last year. It's was a very nice place to stay everything was perfect. At this time the owner was Mod, now it's someone else, so if you go there check the last review and not the old one with the previous owner. You may have some surprise if... More

The location--the very end of the beach--is private, beautiful, and romantic. The rooms are average--clean, sufficient. The amenities of the hotel are promising, but not really followed through by the owner. The owner is a poor customer service agent--had given our room away, then tried to charge us for a room we did not rent, all the while making us... More

This place is absolutely terrible. The owner does not care about the customers at all, we were booked into a two bed bungalow with aircon for 900. And were given a single bed hotel room no aircon for 1400. One of the staff were trying to give us our correct room and price and she was fired by the owner.... More

Terrible hotel and staff. Sunrise emailed us to tell us they had rooms and that they would see us the next day. We had already booked a hotel but because of the lovely reviews we gave up the deposit we had paid to come here. On getting here we were we were told they had no rooms. The lady who... More

Had five fantastic days here recently and would recommend it to anyone in the mid-low price range. The view of shark island and the bay below is stunning, and you can walk to the bay in 10 mins from the bungalows- although the walk back is very steep! Mod, who looks after the bungalows is the most helpful and friendly... More

Stayed four nights and we all absolutely loved it. The bungalows have a fantastic view overlooking shark island, area out 15 minutes from town with a beach in walking distance. The beach is about ten minutes walk away and although the climb is steep I would highly recommend this beach as there a two lovely restaurants and it is much... More

We booked the small house for 3 nights. It is clean but the bathroom is not very luxury. So don't except too much. The house is closed, so no insects can come in, which was good. The soul of the sunrise bungalows is the owner Mod, she is really absolutely lovely and she can cook very good and has a... More

Stayed 3 nights and loved it. Mod the Thai owner is awesome and runs the place singlehanded - shes also very funny and a great cook! The bungalows have an amazing hillside view overlooking shark island...well worth an early wake up to see sunrise. The location is also great, you can walk to a quite beach with great snorkelling and... More

It was my first time in ko Tao and I had just travelled the 22 hour journey from chiang mai... I got off the boat and faced 30 or so locals promoting their lodgings. Luckily I had booked ahead with sunrise bungalows. Now at this point maybe everyone else would have got a 200baht taxi instead of hike up the... More
