It was just OK. The staff are miserable. It's ok to go snorkelling here for two days, then move on to somewhere else. The room was nice. Location is truly quiet. Wonderful beach. It's just so damned boring if you stay too long, as there is literally nothing to do except snorkel and dive. There's a few resorts that you... More

top snorkling/diving location with a high quality house reef. hotel is clean, quiet, children friendly with a nice pool area. lot of value for reasonable prices. I would go again ...we all spend an amazing time here. attention for party people: you rather should target the west side of the island :)

After reading a lot of the other reviews I was worried about coming but I certainly shouldn't have been. It was our anniversary when we arrived &... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. It's very remote (which is what we wanted) and it's a bit of an experience getting there and back to the pier in the 4x4s! Great fun. I thought the food was good and reasonably priced considering its remoteness, they could charge a lot more as there are limited other options. I've seen some bad... More

Ko tao was a little bit disappointing because there was so many tourists and we didn't find any quiet spot. Bu then we found this hotel! We was there in summer 2013, but this is still clearly in our minds. Staff was great, food was really good and the hotel room was clean and romantic. This hotel is a little... More

We planned to stay there for 4 days but we cancelled after the first night. We never cancelled before because of unsatisfied service in any place where we stayed, but with this review I tell...

Simple food, good poolarea but not a very good beach. The bungalows held a good standard with cosy beds. Lived there for 4 nights. I recommend taking the boat-tour around the island snorkeling, free pickup from hotel 🏩
