The Villa is just a short walk to the beach down a lit boardwalk. One pool is dated with some broken tiles but the other was good to swim in. The restaurant was good as there are limited options on the beach. The room was clean and comfortable. There was a little trouble with the electrical but they were very responsive and came to fix immediately. Compared to other hotels in the bay it is a very good option. We looked at several.

What was meant to be our best hotel turned out to be our worst nightmare. After a whole day of travels we got picked up by the hotel transfer, the hotel was 40mins away from the port- VERY far away from the main town. We arrived at the hotel at around 8pm and found out that the hotel already took half of the money out of my account earlier on that day so we settled the rest at reception. We got brought to our room which was up a very big hill. Once we entered the room... that’s when the horror story began. There were ants, crawling and flying around everywhere in the bathroom, varying from all shades of black and red colours. The whole place was invaded by them. I pointed it out to one of the men that came with us to help bring our suitcases and he just laughed and said that they’re not dangerous and they’ll do something about them tomorrow. The ants had nests in every single part of the bathroom. In the shower, above the shower, on the floors, around the sink, they were crawling in the toilet and flying around the whole place. It was absolutely disgusting. Do not recommend to anyone. What the place looked like in reality completely differed from the photographs advertised online. I’m not sure if it was even the same place in the pictures? We decided to go back to reception straight away and request a full refund and try and find a new place as the hotel was absolutely terrifying. The woman at reception was giggling to herself as we were complaining to her. And as if the state of the accommodation wasn’t bad enough.. we were assured (I have a confirming email that I got them to send to me before we left) that we’d get a full refund within 7 working days. And to this day, almost 3 weeks later I am still awaiting my money.

Hotel is beautyfull located at the middle of a hill. You can reach the beach by a 5 minutes walk on a stairway, normaly. At the time when we stayed there, it was under construction because of the storm that hit koh tao in beginning of 2019. An alternative route was available, so it was no problem. Two pools, one deep and big enough to really enjoy swimming. Restaurant and breakfast were fine, room was clean, service was friendly, all over nice location. I really sorry that I can't name the bad things, that made this rating just a 3 point. Even they offer free ride to the town and back twice a day. In comparison to other hotels we stayed, which were much cheaper and included same service, it would be unfair, to rate it 4 points. It's more a feeling which I can't exactly figure out. So, in the end, a 3 point rating knocking on the door to 4. If you stay here, you definitely not booking wrong and can have a nice time.

Great hotel & staff from start to finish! We were collected from the Seatran at Mae Head pier. The taxi/shuttle is on the right as you leave the ferry. The shuttle is in the back of a pick up truck. This is how most of the taxis operate. Tip...do not pack a lot! The ferry has steps down to it from Koh Samui & with washing at the hotel for 70TBH for a kilo you really don’t need to! We had a garden villa, which was beautifully situated within stunning gardens. We were lucky to have been allocated number 6 which is near to all the facilities Breakfast is limited, but there is enough to choose from for many fussy eaters from cereal to pancakes, bacon to rice! The restaurant provide the best food we had eaten in the area, the tempura Shrimp & spring rolls are excellent. Rooms are cleaned daily, you must put the sign on the door, as they operate a no sign, no clean policy. Take your beach towels to reception to have them changed. The hotel offers a free shuttle service to the pier twice a day. Which is great if you fancy picking up a few cheaper beers for example. The best supermarket we found for choice & price was Pen Market near to the tower in the centre of town. Seafood by pawn is near to there too, although on the side of the road, the food was very good. Excellent taxi service from the pier, all have the same tariff. We used Diamond Tours for our day snorkelling trip, organised from the hotel. Very friendly & food on board was acceptable too. The wooden bridge is out of use at the hotel currently, but if you don’t fancy the walk up & down the hill the hotel will run you. I must point out there are ALOT of steps / hills at the hotel. Which is great to keep your holiday weight off, not so good if you can’t walk far without aid! Last tip...you must try the coconut milk shake at the hotel, it’s wonderful! Enjoy, we certainly did!

In short: it's lovely, but it's a very steep walk to the beach. As lovely as it is, better to stay right on Tanote Bay beach. The hotel is set in a manicured tropical garden spread on a hillside. I loved the grounds. I stayed in a garden villa, which was one floor of a duplex. While there were many imperfections, I loved my room, which felt like a treehouse. It was quiet and comfortable. The only minor issues were the ants in the room (just 5-10 per day), and I discovered that you cannot turn off the air conditioning while you are at the beach, because a mildew smell will develop quickly. So I left the a/c running constantly, which dealt with the smell. The pool area is lovely. The restaurant is OK, but there were better, cheaper, more scenic options down on the beach. So about that steep hill. If you stay in the main hotel, you're at the top. If, like me, you stay in a villa, you have to climb up the hill to get to the road to the beach, then down a a very steep road. In ski terms, it's as steep as a double blue square. It's the coming up that's killer. Six minutes of steep climbing every time. The beach is gorgeous and uncrowded, and I definitely recommend coming to Tanote Bay. But if you seek a beach vacation, why not stay at a place on the beach, rather than a lovely eagle's nest high above it? One solution is if you're a daredevil on a motorbike with no fear of very steep hills. I'm sorry not to recommend this place otherwise, because in every other way it was lovely, and the staff are very nice.
