The place is in a great location for Sairee beach nightlife, restaurants and diving schools. However, the staff ain't great. We were getting the boat at 6:30am so had to check out around 5:45am. This boat leaves from Koh Tao everyday, and there were other guests who were checking out at the same time as us......however, reception was closed....and they...

Don't go here, it's horrible. Food takes a VERY long time. Staff is extremely rude and incompetent. Ordered from the menu and had to send my dish back because it was cold. Rest of the group ordered from the barbecue and had to wait nearly 2 hours for the food to arrive. Bland taste, over cooked fish. Terrible experience overall.

We ended up at the restaurant for new years, what a disaster! We ended up waiting for the food for 1.5 hours, the staff was very unhelpful and ignored us when we asked where the food was. When we finaly got the food, it was really nothing special so we asked for a discount which they started arguing about. I...

We booked this place because it has a good location (near the beach and near supermarkets and restaurants/bars) but mostly because it has a diving center. The diving center is very very good, our instructor Thibaut Lescot is amazing. The price is reasonable but the experience is one of a kind. If you want to stay in Koh Tao and...

Not specially good or memorable, but cheap room, very convenient because of the discount that goes with the diving course that you choose. You can choose the dorm or private bungalow (more expensive). I chose the dorm because there were very few people and I was lucky to have to room for myself the first night. Good location

Location very good and view from restaurant next to the beach is beautiful......however, what a disappointment with everything else. We stayed in the garden bungalows. Our bungalow was dreadful.....it was not very clean. Only a thin sheet over a bare mattress with another sheet to sleep in, I didn't dare to look at the state of the mattress!! The bathroom...

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...

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...

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...
