Stayed at Capitain Nemo for 3n.

It was a real pleasure having you here and great satisfaction in knowing that you enjoyed your time here. Actually, were are very busy during high season but we get the time to recommend restaurants, pubs or spots to discover. A little help from local people is sometime better than an heavy guidebook !! Greetings from Koh Tao !

We stayed there for New Year's Eve and the two following days. The owner (French) is very very nice and helps you with everything - he even gave us a beach bag with beach towels. The room was very big and was cleaned every day. It is also located in the center of the island. It is probably the best...
