Really calm area, and clean wide beds. Attached bath. Room is cleaned daily and they even make your bed ! Owner is helpful with explaining any doubts you have and arranges a drop off at the pier of you book tickets with him. Better than arranging a taxi honestly. All in all good place to stay.

We used Sun Smile's ticket and booking service for a day trip around the island and for fairy tickets. They were very nice, very helpful and professional. Highly recommended! (we have also had bad experiences in koh Tao to compare with)

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights and arrived early after getting the overnight bus from Bangkok and we were checked in straight away even though it was quite early. We were greeted very warmly and were given lots of useful information on things to do on the island and tips on the best Thai places to eat...

We have just had two nights at this great hotel. The staff are the best - so very helpful. Thanks to their recommendations we ate at good places and had the best day trip boating and snorkelling around the island. There are a hundred and one little extras about this place that add to a great stay. The rooms are...

We had a fantastic 7 day stay at this hotel mainly thanks to the staff and management. Initially we only intended to stay 3 days as we also wanted to visit other sides of Koh Tao island, however the service at Sun Smile kept us from moving on. The room we stayed in was very comfortable, clean, well kept, included...

We LOVED this place!!! The man at the front desk was just wonderful at our check in, very enthusiastic and helpful of how to get around the island. HE showed us where authentic thai food was away from the tourist traps as well. The rooms were nice and cool with AC with a cute balcony. The free coffee, beach towels,...

I stayed in a double room on the 2nd floor for 4 nights and it was faultless. The owner is so friendly and sat us down when we first arrived to give us a guide to Koh Tao, a map and ideas for places to eat, activities etc. He even organised a group snorkelling trip for us with pickup from...

I stayed in Sun Smile for 3 nights in a dorm. Spacious room and good location. Except one exception, the staff is very very unfriendly. Good point, there is a bathroom in the room. Bad Point, it really stinks in it. Plus, they made me pay one more day for a couple hours extra, after I asked one guy of...
