Thailand the land of the smiles - not here! I don't know why they are not friendly to their customers, they don't have a reason to. They have really pretty bungalows in a garden, the location is good (nearby the center of Mae Haad but still quiet)... Further the beds are the hardest I had in Thailand. And the bathroom... More

We had a great stay at this hotel. It was a bit of a building site. Very expensive for Thailand. Staff were great. Was out of the way from all the parties. Right on beach. Rented a scooter from them which wasn't in good condition. Not a budget stay but enjoyed the rooms

Great rooms for a good price. Breakfast right on the beach and helpful staff who will organize your tours and rent your motorbikes to you without taking advantage. Renting a scooter in koh Tao is a dangerous business so preferably find a trustworthy hotel who you can rent through, like this one. Even although there was some construction going on... More

We only stayed here for one night, thankfully: There were stains on our sheets. Power went out a few times during the evening. Bungalow had a Thai shower (fine, but should really advertise that). The TV channels were 98% Thai, which also should be advertised - everywhere else we stayed during our trip at this price point had the same... More

So, if you look at the places you'd say it's paradise... it's not. The nice beach you see is the one of the port, so forget bathing in there. The beach is VERY short even with low tide, and in any case not charming. I was in the "premium" room, which is on a very large terrace wich you share... More

Located on the white sand beach, clean neat cottage. Close to market area and diving schools. Good service. Value for money. I would recommend this resort for family with kids. Would love to stay here again on my next trip to Koh Tao

Everything from room to service is ok I guess but the music coming from the next door neighbours is pretty awful! Relentless bass from noon till midnight! Rest n relaxation s few and far between.. Nice place Ko Tao but if this is the way forward for the island then it will become just another Phuket

Really good location, staff were friendly, breakfast was really good and you could basically sit on the beach for it, they have sunbeds on the beach which was amazing, clear waters and very relaxing, good photo spot! The bungalows were very basic though and the mozzie nets on the windows had holes in them, the only proper lock on the... More

After much deliberation on where to stay on Koh Tao we decided to stay at Blue Diamond Resort. It's so difficult to choose somewhere when you've never been before. I think in hindsight I would just rock up to the pier and bargain with one of the 'taxi' drivers but best to know where you're going I suppose. I did... More

We stayed as a family of four in an aircon bungalow. It was pretty much standard, quiet and not right on the beach, - couple of minutes walk. The main part of the hotel is small, nice enough little beach terrace to sit on to have breakfast. Breakfast was included and was cooked fresh to order. Staff pleasant and helpful.... More
