This place is amazing!!! We stayed in the Paradise Zone, which is the part of the resort that is up on the hill with a view. And WoW!!! What a view it is! From the eating area and the infinity pool, you look out over the lush hills and green-blue waters that Koh Tao is famous for. For the price... More

This island is trying to be sustainable, only ruined by tourists who live in a zombie consumer world. It is a wild climate, with all sorts of bugs. If you are not prepared then stay at home. It is excellent value for money if you want to dive, walk/trek, peace and quiet. Not for families, especially those who cannot entertain... More

Very unpolite and rude staff, insects in the bungalow, even holes in the towels, electricity not working properly!!! Couldn't stay there, but didn't get back any money - very very unfriendly guy at the reception!! Just horrible, don't go there!!!

We chose this resort because I was diving with an outfit nearby and they recommended it as the more "posh" option because it had air conditioning. We saw our room before agreeing to take it. It was basic but appeared clean. The hotel picked us up from our 1st hotel on a different part of he island which was very... More

We stayed 7 days at Paradise View of Ko Tao Resort, where the staff are great and always keen to help. The food was so tasty and in huge portions! The double bed in our room was not so much of a double bed... too small... In general, the room was decent and with great mountain and sea view the... More

The bed was actually comfortable but its FREAKING HOT INSIDE. I actually thought the weather would be okay so staying in a fan room was okay but NO. I stayed in the dive dorms and good thing I opted for a license in diving so they waived my charges for the room. Ergo, if you want to dive, dont choose... More

Loved the location of this hotel the view was breathtaking . We went with a group of friends , stayed in a suit it was comfortable. The staff was not very helpful but overall I would 100% stay there again . It's within walking distance from some good street food but a solid cab ride from the bars where everyone... More

Positive; They had upgraded our room, so we got a lot of space. Negative; We payed for wifi but didnt get that. The staff does not know how to smile. And arent willing to help us in any way, so we are just not feeling welcome. Its a good thing we only booked one night.

The dive resort part is run well, competent instructors and dive masters. They have up to date equipment all well maintained. However the dorm leaves a lot to be desired. They are small, hot with poor ventilation. My wife actually chose to sleep outside on our last night just to get fresh air. The receptionist has no customer service skills,... More

We stayed here one night and move to our dive centre (Big Blue) right away. There's nothing special about the Resort and it's quite expensive to travel to the other (better) part of the island. Room was quite small and full of mosquitos. Overall, it's not worth it to stay here.
