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

Amazing place. The owner is very friendly and knew everyone by their first name. When I arrived I was sat down and told everything about the island; what to do, where to go, where is cheap and I was told about all the different tours. The room was huge, nice bathroom, really comfy bed, sofa, balcony and great air con.... More

When we arrived to Sun Smile Lodge we were surprised by the welcoming from the manager and other workers! They were very polite! We stayed for three nights. The room was spacious with a balcony (connected to other balconies), and clean! They cleaned our room every day. I would definitely recommend this cute hotel to everyone who goes to Koh... More

We only spent one night here during our two week stay but it was on of the best rooms we stayed in. We had an immaculately clean, large room with a balcony and decent bathroom and everything in the room you could possibly need. The bed was enormous and so comfy! The manager / owner (not sure which) was such... More

I spent 4 nights at Sun Smile and loved it. Really great service from the Manager and all the staff. So friendly and helpful. They organised my travel for me, gave me a free transfer to the ferry and generally were just a pleasure to be around. The rooms are lovely, really spacious and clean. And the location is ideal,...

Lovley little guesthouse with a great manager who is very friendly and extremely helpful, certainly seems to care about the quality of service in which this B&B delivers, and a lot better than the posher hotels we stayed at on our journey. Location fantastic, rooms lovely and spacious, my only criticism which is more personal is that the beds were... More
