Excellent staff, very helpful and friendly. Room cleaned everyday, little extras like tea/coffee, dishes, water and fridge allowed us to have breakfast or lunch on the balcony if we wished. Good location only 5 mins from the beach and just off the main road, near 7/11 and restaurants.

We had a great stay at Sun Smile, the location was great for Sairee Beach with very friendly host. The motorbike rental guys seem a bit on the intimidating side until you get talking. Rooms are fine with comfy bed, sofa and telly, fridge with bottles water daily and a wet room as bathroom. Would definitely stay again!!

As the other reviews states, we were very impressed with the five minutes the owner/manager took to get us acquainted with the area when we checked in. That goes a long way. We had a room that was huge and very clean (cleaned daily as well). The location is a quick walk to all the restaurants in the area. For... More

Our first room (3nights) was a great size and very clean. Wifi worked great. We wanted to stay longer but our room was booked so we moved to room... More

I was fairly impressed with this hotel. We were picked up at the pier and offered welcome drinks upon arrival. The rooms were nice and the staff friendly. Location wise, it was good for us as our dive school was 2 minutes walk away. Some of the bars and restaurants were a bit further away but in reality, everything in... More

best possible location. 2 minute walk to beaches and party area but far enough that it is not noisy. Hotel is very clean, staff helpful. Expensive for Thai standards. No pool but close to ocean. No fitness center

I stayed at the Sun Smile solo for one night during a recent trip to Koh Tao. I was extremely impressed with how I was treated by manager and staff upon arriving and had no problems finding my room. It was a huge room with a big balcony overlooking the garden and I was lucky enough to have a bit... More
