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 Notes for guests in rooms: years out of date with no updates for CoVid times.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.…
The apartment room type was so big and clean the whole place so quiet .Swimming pool was so nice and clean. . Staff was polite and helpful . We have had a great stayed and would like to come back again.
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!
