This was my fourth stay at Woodlawn and the first where I was disappointed. The villas, beds and furnishings are as good as ever and the setting among the trees away from the busier parts of Koh Tao all still good. Unfortunately the smaller details are now neglected and the property no longer well run. Things mentioned on their website when you book are no longer done. Examples: Tea & Coffee - none in room, Electronic safe- not working (I eventually got a key for the safe after insisting and sorting through a plastic basket of 100 keys with a member of staff) Complimentary drinking water - "Not Have!" - but this is included "Not do anymore!" Phone in room - for calling staff (Reception nearly always unattended so phone needed) & food delivery - "Not do anymore". Insects have always been a problem here but were controlled previously, now out of control. Notes for guests in rooms: years out of date with no updates for CoVid times. I think the problem stems from the fact that the English owners are no longer on the Island and that the very efficient Burmese(?) man who used to act as manager has left. The Thai woman now in charge does her best but it doesn't compare with the loving care & attention to detail once lavished on the property. I know we have CoVid and they have dropped their room rates (but so has everyone) there is no excuse for not updating website and room notes to reflect the new reality. Hope they get their act together again as this place used to be really good.

Hello Alpinisita52, thank you for your review. We are delighted to know this is your fourth stay at Woodlawn Villas. I think this is your first review for Woodlawn Villas and we are saddened to hear you were not satisfied with your stay this time. Please allow us the opportunity to address some of your concerns. We apologise we are no longer in a position to provide complimentary items such as drinking water bottles, tea and coffee etc whilst offering our rooms at a reduced pricing structure of just 300 Baht per night. We have supplied notices online, inside the rooms and at reception so guests are informed. As you can imagine the hospitality sector has been dramatically impacted by covid19 worldwide so we have had to make some temporary changes to be able to operate in these challenging times. The phones we once relied upon for guests to communicate with the reception are no longer needed, due to technological developments. We have found our guests for some time have chosen to communicate with reception via Facebook messenger or Whatsapp through their own devices. The issue of insects (ants) will be raised with management so they can investigate your room and take the necessary action immediately. We can assure you that the same amount of care and attention is being given to the resort as always. The entire team love Woodlawn Villas and the beautiful environment it provides for our guests. Thank you for review and we hope you will return to us for a 5th time in the future. All the best from the Woodlawn Villas team.

We were fortunate enough to spend most of our coronavirus lockdown at Woodlawn Villas. The staff at the Villas made the process of meeting the government's regulations as easy as possible. We had a really comfortable and enjoyable stay, and highly recommend it at any time.

Beautiful and peaceful complex surrounded trees. We really enjoyed our stay here as it the very quiet yet very close to the center. The apartment had everything we needed and it was very clean. I highly recommended stay here if you decide to visit Ko Tao. In addtion, there is a very nice pool that we had all for ourself. Great place!

We really loved our stay in one of the Garden Villas over the past 2 weeks! The villa was perfect for the two of us and really felt like our 'home away from home'. The resort is peaceful,has a beautiful pool, great location, is clean and the staff is wonderful! We have been to the island many times but this was the first time staying at Woodlawn. I can safely say it is a place we would recommend anyone to stay and we certainly would go back to. Thanks to the wonderful owners, the staff ( and the most comfortable bed ♡) for our stay! We really enjoyed it and will be back for sure!
