We stayed in this hotel in the beginning of September 2014. The beach is right infront of your door and its perfect for snorkeling and diving. There is a diving school which is part of the hotel with teachers that speak several languages. My and my boyfriend did our Open Water/Advanced Open Water Padi. In comparison to the schools in...

The reason for this title is that there is a great diving school with it. Not in the sense of a large commercial diving school with the most expensive equipment but a school where the teachers still take their time to teach you proper diving. It is tucked away on the other side of the Island and I have been... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights in mid September. This is low season here and it is VERY, VERY, VERY QUIET!! it's a beautiful place on a lovely beach. Snorkeling off the beach here is lovely. Montalay Beach Resort is on the East coast of Koh Tao, which is only accessible from the port by four-wheel drive truck or... More

Booked my stay online and my request for transport to the resort, which is on the opposite side of the island, was responded to within a very short period of time. It is quite remote, and the road there is not the best. Tanote Bay is beautiful and the resort is really pretty. I had originally booked for 3 nights,... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in July and thoroughly enjoyed its peaceful setting and lovely little bay. They have hotel rooms or bungalows to choose from, in a lovely garden setting. Chose a hotel room with just a fan but this was sufficient as there were nice sea breezes when you open the balcony door. The 2 storey hotel rooms... More

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.
