We stayed in Montalay 8 nights in July and had a very very good experience. Me, my husband and our daughter shared a superior room which was large, modern, clean and very comfortable. Daily cleaning, coffe and tea facilities and a nice terrace. We hadn't air con and felt good with fan, and the price for the room was very... More

After sending a few nights at the disgusting Goodtime Hotel on Sairee beach, I was relieved to move over to Montalay Beach Resort on the Tanote Bay side of the island. For about the same price this hotel offers much more amenities. Also, the Tanote Bay is a great place to snorkel right off the beach and is very relaxing... More

The hotel is set in a lovely position, it has picturesque beach. The bungalows where we stayed were nicely spread out. The rooms were serviced each day, we had complimentary water and tea and coffee making facilities, no milk though. The staff were attentive, and food was good. The buffet breakfast was fine, if a little limited in choice. The... More

We stayed at Montalay back in Jan this year. The main attraction was the off the beach snorkelling which was great - calm waters and a variety of fish. The resort itself is immaculate with a lovely pool area. Was very impressed with the food tasty and fairly cheap especially if you go for the local dishes. Only drawback was... More

We stayed there for 6 night. We had superior room. Very very nice rooms. Very friendly staff. The restaurant is not cosy, but it will do the job. The snorkeling in the bay is spectacular, excellent, the best in Koh Tao. I will definitely recommend this place. The beach is only good for snorkeling not for swimming.

For me, I think hotel price is reasonable. Food a bit expensive but the taste is good so still acceptable. The price for a la carte is around 120-350 baht but each dish enough for one big guy. Nice cleaning room services but toilet a bit dark as tile decoration is in dark tone >.< Anyway, hotel is far away... More

Excellent quality, rooms are spotless, beach is very nice, snorkelling in the Bay is amazing for the number of different fishes you can swim with, restaurant is good and with a decent number of dishes ... will come back!!

Me and my partner luckily only had a 2 night stay at Montalay beach. Where do I start, we first got off the ferry and found our way to a very nice taxi man who took us to the resort and charged us 600 baht. Having arrived at the resort we found out Montalay Beach provide their own taxi service... More

took an openwater dive course with a mellow, experienced instructor - Mr Robert ! enjoyed a lot and want to go back. the resort is somewhat a place to hideaway. it is located in a remote area of Ko Tao which is a good place to relax and rest. however, taking a taxi to Sairee (busy night beach) is also...

We did our open water suba course at this resort during our Honeymoon. The service is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The dive instructor Robert concentrates on individuals and keeps even the most nervous diver calm. Great experience and great fun. Thanks Robert...
