We were the hotel twice and we will return to it . Simple but charming bungalows, simply furnished ( who spends time in Thailand at the hotel ? ) Wonderful crew seeking to while away the guests stay . Very good food . Spectacular views

Where to start... Bungalow was in really bad condition. Fan was 1 for 2 double beds and it was a joke. Sheets were broke and mosquito net on beds too. Shower was without pressure ( been on small island like phi phi so I now how it should be) and bathroom was so filthy from dead bugs that I could... More

We stayed in Koh Tao Royal Resort for 2 nights and it was a nice experience. Mind that the bungalows are surrounded by tropical plants and it's practically impossible to keep insects out. Also because of the way they are constructed: everything is made of wood (the bungalows stand on poles), which looks great, but tiny insects (and gekkos) will... More

The manager is just so rude, the bungalows are aging and the staff don't speak english at all. The manager, an english man, is only for ma king Monetier, doesn't care of the customers Just don't understand the positive reviews ??? DON'T GO AT THIS PLACE!!! RUN AWAY !!!

Online this place looks beautiful, and the area itself is nice!! We made a booking online and once we arrived paid for 5 nights. We made the mistake of not looking at the room prior, which we usually do. We are young travelers that are on a budget so are not overly picky about where we stay as long as... More

Didn't get what we booked, hotel was obviously overbooked, staff didn't try to find solutions instead searched for apologizes, staff was getting aggressive after asking a second time. Room was dirty, shower didn't really work (too less water), room smell after pee, bathroom is open to the rest of the room, descriptions in Internet are wrong, staff didn't call owner,... More

If I'd had an option of a comfortable home feel apartment room or a tree bungalow with its own wild life all around, yet has an a/c and all the protective shenanigans for a high maintenance westerner, I'd choose the wild life in bungalow, it's the only way to experience the real Thailand! The Royal Resort is extraordinary place, wonderful... More

Lovely bungalows, perfect location not too far from the pier, beautiful view from the restaurant/private beach stretch. We had to pay an extra 500THB for air con (which is essential for survival! Haha!). Also, WiFi doesn't work from the bungalow, just from the restaurant area. But I guess that makes it a real holiday :-)

Our first island experience in Thailand and we loved it! The front of house staff were really friendly, the food was great (especially the Phad Thai) and our room was perfect for the price we paid. The only downside was the lack of wifi in the rooms, but at least it meant we were forced to get stuck into our... More
