Had bungalow no. 14 for 800 baht a day (high season) Overall very clean although they don't clean the rooms during your stay - pretty sure they do nowhere if you rent a bungalow. Disagree with previous reviews on the service. Very nice young staff who play the guitar in the evening. Sure they sit around if there is nothing... More

We went to saree beach first and was disgusted by the sewage and hoards of backpackers. In low season, we were charged 600 bht instead of 800. The room had a fan and balcony- basic but adequate. Food was a bit dodgy, both my wife and I got food positioning from here. The bay and snorkelling was amazing, beautiful!! The... More

Tanote family Bay is locates on one of the most beautiful spots in Thailand, but the accomodation is horrific! It's all about earning your Bahts, not about customerservice. My room was never cleaned, I didn't have toiletpaper, my bed was dirty and had bugs :(, the reception wouldn't help me plan for my next trip, the restaurant was dirty and... More

found the Tanote Family Bay Resort over the Calypso DiveBase situated on the Beach nearby, where greeted by friendly Staff and brought to a clean bungalow, and enjoyed our meals (although they are a bit more expensive,but my opinion tastier than others on the beach) in the Tanote Restaurant. Stayed in a Bungalow with Fan, and an awsome view from... More

On Kho Tao we spent three nights at Family Tanote Bay. The bungalows are situated on the rocks in one corner of the bay, where you have a nice view on the beach and the sea. The bungalow is with 1500.- BATH per night very expensive. There is no room service in this price included and for toilet paper you... More

I stayed in a fan bungalow here, which we got for 600Baht in the low season after a lot of hard bargaining. The room was fine, but not that clean. The view was incredible, and there was a hammock and chair on the balcony. The staff were quite unhelpful and most of the time we past the reception the staff... More

We booked 4nights at this place online with Kotaoisland.net since the hotel didn't have it's own website. We paid a deposit of 20% and were quoted 3500 ThB per night for a four bed family bungalow with airconditioning It was recommended in Lonely Planet. The price seemed expensive but it is a touristy area and we thought we were paying... More

Nice looking resort (the stairs with all the bottles thy built in...).The view is perfect from the bungalows´ nice veranda (hammock included). The bungalow itself is clean and practical. the pricing is bit too high. Not all of the meals in the restaurant are good and too expensive as well (our best choice was the poseidon restaurant on the opposite... More

The only redeeming feature this hotel is the location. It has the best views of Ao Tanote bay that has excellent snorkeling and swimming in a quiet location on the island. Do not cross Ao Tanote off your list as it was my favourite place on the East coast islands however do not stay here- be warned.... I have backpacked... More
