Ting picked us up at the Pier, away from all the trouble straight to the paradise on earth. Freindliest Stoff i ever had. Nice view from our Bungalow. Even the food was awesome. It is a bit away from alle the trouble, thats why you have to drive 20 Minutes from the Pier, but you will never find a paradise... More

Me and my boy friend arrived on Koh Tao via ferry to find view rock staff waiting for us, after a short wait we set off for the resort. The resort is a bit out of the way which was perfect for a few nights, the journey from the pier to the resort was only around 15 minutes but felt... More

We booked this place in a bit of a rush as could not find anywhere else on Ko Tao. Well, when we arrived we thought we had made a massive mistake. The place is very tired and worn down and we had to ask to change rooms. However, once we settled in, the place did grow on us. The snorkeling... More

I loved this resort, travelling on a budget View Rock was perfect in ever way so charming and peaceful the staff were so friendly and helpful. I never saw any of the day trippers that other reviewers have mentioned but there were quite a few boats on the bay - but that was because it was the best snorkeling on... More

The resort was a very intriging plase with a lot of stone steps all over the place. The snorkeling was splendid and the staff was wery helpful and nice. The cabins were clean and spaseous. Want to come back.

We came here to enjoy nature and calm but were sorely disappointed. Each day, the restaurant caters to tons of day trippers from Samui who come here by speed boats to stop here for lunch. Of course, this is an incredibly good source of income for the owners but it destroyed the atmosphere in the restaurant and in the bay... More

A great location for snorkeling, but many stairs. The bungalow I was given had a great view, but no electricity until 6 p.m. which means the rooms are hot with no fan.The staff who met me in town couldn't provide locked storage in the truck for my backpack which I had been carrying around since the ferry arrived at 6:00...

We (a family of four, kids 6 & 9 years old) stayed at the View Rock resort for three nights in July 2013. After reading the mixed tripadvisor reviews, we didn't quite know what to expect ... and were (overall) pleasantly surprised. Our room was large, spotlessly clean and had a huge balcony overlooking the ocean. The staff was very... More

Very friendly staff, nice new bungalows with GREAT views and excellent snorkelling! When going there, call in advance to arrange a (free!) pick-up from the ferry! Only negative points: As the bay is very scenic, all the island snorkelling trips stop here and some even have their lunch in the restaurant of the resort, so quietness is interrupted for approx....

View Rock offers simple bungalows with very nice views, the owner couple is friendly and helpful. Snorkelling is fantastic in the bay. Unfortunately, the island was completely invaded by large groups of rather ruthless French tourists - as was the neighbour island , too- so it might be a better option to come here in the off-peak season.
