Have been going to Bans since the year 1998. Its amazing to see the amount of development this resort has been through. This year, travelling with my mom, we were pleasantly upgraded to a Deluxe room, for the price paid was good value for money, we stayed close to the beach and could walk down to a convenient store, a...

We stayed here for 5 days in a deluxe hill top view room. Check in staff were great at sorting out a slight issue and efficient when booking trips and ferry etc. Room was lovely with separate living room and bedroom and large balcony with sea view. Bathroom was barely acceptable. The air con outlet pipe ran through it was... More

Breakfast - not too exciting, not to big, actually quite plain and... More

I selected this resort because I got the whole 'one stop service' for fun&stay at the same place. I stayed here for few days and plan to take 'scuba diving' here too, its so convenience. Next time, when I plan to dive at Koh Tao, I prefered to stay at Ban's Diving Resort again and again.

My boyfriend and I (30's) and 3 other adults in their 50's stayed here in January 2014. My boyfriend did the scuba diving course and therefore we got a discounted room. The room was clean enough and spacious with a balcony. However, because we were so close to the bars and restaurants, we couldn't sleep until the disco music was... More

I stayed here for one week in a Deluxe room and had a pleasant enough stay though two things were a little annoying. The first is that you are only 50 yards from the bars and the music from the bars drifts up and keeps on going until one or two in the morning. Fortunately I had earplugs with me... More

I will start by saying how dissapointed I was to find out that we only get 10% discount for the Padi course after we paid a fair bit of money for the accommodation. Have to say that this was the most expensive place I've stayed in Thailand and I have to say that it wasn't the best. The worst thing... More
