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

My wife and me spent four nights there and this was our stop on Koh Tao. All the facilities were working fine, headmaster of the reception is gorgeous, you feel home right after arrival. Great value for us was that you don't hear the village which is still short walking distance away. Rooms and balconies are very quiet, yet all... More

We were not impressed with the services offered by the hotel We dealt with two types of staff, the older staff who were amazing and friendly when we dealt with them for an issue we encounted with the bike. They were fantastic and we were really happy with the choice we had made in choosing a place to rent a... More

Friendly staff, big room, all rounder for the money. Staff helpful, good wifi connection in room. Very short walk to beach and bars etc only thing I missed was not having a pool but that's just because sand drives me insane!

It was a great stay in a great location but I can't help but focus on my last day. A couple of holiday makers came into to use the Internet and the staff were very rude and unpleasant to them because the Internet was very expensive. It may be wrong to judge this place on something I didn't experience myself... More
