We booked a room for 3 nights and we ended up staying for over a week. Everything was perfect, the staff were very very helpful and it is less than 5 minutes walking distance from Sairee Beach where you can just enjoy the best sunset ever. We definitely will come back.

We are not young anymore but we found this nice little place like a gem. From outside maybe looks like a budget hotel but the rooms are very big, with fridge, coffee, tee cattle and so on. So clean rooms, daily fresh towels, warm staff. Big balcony, really very roomy. Transfer from the pier was impeccable. Welcome drink accompanied with... More

It may looks like a budget hotel, but once you saw the room (private room), you will feel its more than what you paid. Very large, clean room with big bed. The staffs are very friendly, introduced the islands, hotel location, restaurants around and short day trip around. They offered free shutter bus to the ferry (exclude very early morning)if... More

Great location (1 minute from Sairee beach, 7eleven and all the main bars and restaurants), great staff, clean dorms and great facilities. This is not a party hostel and does not have a common area but would definitely recommend for the location and value for money.

We stayed here for a week over Christmas and really enjoyed our time at Sun Smile Lodge. The room was large and spacious, cleaned every morning while we went out for breakfast. The area was quiet, so even during a busy time of year we had space to rest, relax and sleep well. The location was also good for accessing... More

Firstly upon arrival to koh Tao pier they have a car that picks you up that saves you having to pay out for taxi's! The staff will help you out with anything and are very prompt with cleaning the room and providing fresh sheets, towels and water everyday. It is no more than a 100 yard stroll to the beach... More

I'd highly recommend this hotel. Great location just minutes from the beach. Close to bars and restaurants but really peaceful too. Rooms are spotless and the staff are welcoming and very helpful.
