We chose this hotel as my partner stayed here 5 years ago and thought it was exceptional for its price. However this time round we both left a bit disappointed.
Location: incredible views from the resort. Overlooking the national marine park and every night a beautiful sunset in a very quiet part of the island and amazing clear starry skies. However the road leading to the resort is treacherous. You must be well experienced riding a ped to be able to pop to the nearest shop, restaurants and bars as the resort is remote. Be carful! Road is a very steep dirt track with large pot holes.
Free decent wifi around bar area.
Resort itself is very well kept with a friendly family owned atmosphere who are happy to help.
It has its own private beach though it's mainly a pebble/shell beach, great for snorkelling but not so good if you just want to cool off.
Restaurant is very good, well priced.
Room type: fan bungalow type A, beach hut. Booked in advance 5 nights.
I have stayed in a few beach huts but that's by far has to be the worst.
Gaps in the flooring as lino was missing over the majority of it.
Thick mosquito net was provided but blocked the fan from allowing any air into the bed
The bed was hard and tiny for two people with ants nest crawling between bed and windows
The bathroom had an overwhelming smell of chemicals, never smelt anything as strong before. Made us feel ill. Similar to ammonia.
This was our experience of the budget bungalow room, but I do know they have bigger and better accommodation available for people with a bigger budget.
Well designed and looks good, but massive maintenance issues with the cleanliness, it was absolutely filthy. Couldn't see the bottom of the pool. This was due to the filters not being on, or one being on very briefly. We stayed in march so not sure if they just didn't bother as its not peak season.
Overall our room and dirty pool ruined the experience for us. I'm sure if we were to pay more money we would have enjoyed our time here more, however we were on a budget and there is a significant difference in cost if we wanted to upgrade.
Just something to take note, a couple of the reviews below are not for this hotel but for a diving resort located on Koh Tao.
