4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012 via mobile

Location excellent, right on Sairee Beach. Close to all amenities, dive centres, shops, bars and restaurants. The veranda overlooking the beach on one side and the balcony overlooking the street on the other! Great place to stay. A little more expensive but definitely worth it!

We stayed here for one night in koh tao, couldn't have coped with a second night! We stayed in a bungalow, don't be fooled by the pictures on website, the room we stayed in was nothing like what they suggest!! It had a foisty smell and the bedding looked old and unclean.
We picked a room with no AC to save money but inside the room seemed hotter than lying in the sun for some reason. The bathroom was rancid, dead cockroach on the floor when we arrived (nice touch) and the plumbing was shocking, even for Thai standards. The toilet seat came off in my hand when I went to lift it! And there was a big gap in between the the bathroom and the bedroom where you could see through to outside which they attempted to cover with a plastic sheet and some masking tape!
They seemed to be quite keen on using masking tape hold all sorts of things in place, the windows for example, and plug sockets!
This may seem like superficial stuff if you are a backpacker who is happy to use substandard accommodation (I don't mean that to sound snobbish I just know backpackers can't afford to be fussy due to budgets), but if you chose to stay here make sure you don't mind sharing your bed with bedbugs! My friend got devoured by them!
It's only saving grace was that the staff were apologetic about the bedbugs but they did suggest that the bites were caused by bees!?! Hmmmm.
If I remember correctly it was priced just below average but to expect people to actually pay any money to stay here is disgraceful!

Moved into this hotel for the remainder of our stay in koh Tao.
Excellent beds, great rooms and most of all the staff of lotus paradise are extremely friendly and always welcoming.
Will defiantly stay here again the next time I'm on koh Tao.
