The bungalows were centrally located-- easy walk to stores and restaurants. Pool is nice. It's a great spot for cheap. Clean and staff is nice. Wifi is very spotty though-- works well in lobby but in bungalow is not reliable. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.

Cabins are tiny, two large adults could barely stand in it at the same time, shower is over the toilet bowl, no closet/shelves, barely enough space to open one suitcase. No blankets, just cover sheets so you can't leave the air on at night... Chairs om the porch were pretty small too. Staff was not too friendly. The pool is... More

Where can I start with this shocking establishment if you can call it that. This is by far the worst place I have ever stayed in. Incompetent, rude mannerless staff. We arrived to be shown our room. Within minutes I found myself at the reception to be spoken to only be smiled at and mocked. Staff are very smug, she... More

Koh Tao has plenty of accommodation options of varying quality but I would recommend the Seashell resort. Well located right on the beach with some of the best bars on the islands only a short walk away. Rooms are modern and clean and above all this place is good value and staff friendly..The restaurant and breakfast is so-so - average... More

The rooms are amazing, the location is amazing. The restaurant is very average, the trouble with the restaurant is that it allows non-guests to dine there, it gets very very busy, my children had to wait 1hour 40mins for their meal, adults meals were fine as they were ordered separately from the BBQ, no real apology was offered, I was...

perfectly situated.. only a 10 minute drive from the port and right on the beach practically. Rooms big & spacious as well as comfy, quite a big complex, all the facilities were nice especially the pool.

Very stubborn and almost rude receptionist. The breakfast was awful and full of mosquitos flying around the uncovered food. The waiters were kids playing with each other instead of helping us. The rooms were average and definitely overpriced. The only good thing about this hotel is probably the nice location. Would never go back.

OK so anywhere on this island is a great location as the island is so small. But this hotel was set just off the main tourist road where you could find all the shops, bars and restaurants you will ever need!!

My partner and I stayed at Seashell Resort as part of a group on an excursion and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Firstly, the hotel is in a fantastic location, on a beautiful beach.

Dear All, I really enjoyed my 1 week in this nice and clean with a good balance of price/quality for the island. The room are clean and quite big for two, the barhroom is nice and the shower works good. The balcony is big enough. Bad thing: wi-fi but you know it's the price for heaven! Recommended! Enjoy!
