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... More

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... More

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,... More

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... More

I have stayed a number of times at Sunsmile and find it difficult in words to actually articulate how good each of my experiences have been. My first experience was so good I booked Xmas for my mother and sister to stay. My second experience was so good ended up staying for 5 months. I have stayed as a young... More

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... More

I had a wonderful stay at Sun Smile lodge. I was initially only going to stay there for a few days and find a cheaper place for my long term stay in koh tao, but nowhere was as good value. Lovely rooms with big TV, sofa, good wifi, hot showers, aircon. Nice balcony with views of the sunset. The location... More

We stayed 2 nights at Sun Smile Lodge and found the overall experience to be very very good. Complimentary collection and drop-off at the pier. Basic but comfortable & spacious room with nice balcony, fridge, complimentary drinking water, free WiFi etc.. But where this place really shines is the staff... they are very friendly, helpful and professional. The hotel is... More

I spent a total of 2 nights here (family of 3, no kids) - on my first and last day on Koh Tao. Location: Relatively quiet location. ATM right outside. Clinic just across the street. 3 min walk to the beach. 5 min to 7-eleven (this is where the massive crowds are). Laundry available nearby (left side on the way... More

I thought the Lodge truly exceptional. The staff were really top quality, not just very friendly but also very professional,they were right on top of everything. Smiles backed up with action, the former one expects in Thailand but not always the latter! Personally I hated Sairee Beach and thought it personified all that is bad about mass budget tourism and...
