We stayed one night in the cheaper bungalows. The room is very small and no door to the toilet. Nice view but one night was enough for the price. Breakfast is good! Pool area and facilities are great as well as staff! Not good for older people or kids because it's very steep "paths" on the hotel area. 700 meter... More

We spent 1 night here & although we did enjoy it - it was nothing special. A little run down, could use some TLC & the staff, although very friendly, were not exceptionally attentive. We got a special last minute deal which suited the accommodation, had we paid full asking price I might have been upset at the value for... More

My fiance and I went to Koh Tao Hillside and we absolutely loved the place! It is slightly outside the main village and beach (fewer people around!), but we could easily walk there whenever we wanted to. Bungalows (standard double room) are basic, but more than enough...you don't want to spend too much time in the room when the sea... More

We stayed at Hillside for only one night as we were doing a diving course on the island. This was a huge mistake. It was our most expensive nights stay out of our whole 3 weeks in Thailand, and can safely say it was the worst. We had booked the most expensive 'hut', we stayed in A28, and it was... More

I loved this hotel, staff were so fantastic, the views and bungalows are breathtaking. Good food and drinks in the hilltop restaurant. Wish I was still there. Not good for mobility issues and not central to the shops etc but taxi only a few pound and if you adventurous you could walk it. You will love this hotel and it's... More

The resort is set in the most beautiful location, about 15 mins from the catamaran pier. Our twin room was cosy, the beds hard and the air con very effective. The rooms were basic but comfortable. Food in the restaurant was tasty and the cocktails at the beach bar were delicious and served by a fun, dreadlock wearing barman. My... More

We had booked and payed in advance for 10 nights at Hillside in July. When we got to our delux bungalow after a scary lift down the steep hill in a golf cart we were hoping to finally relax ! Unfortunately the entire bungalow was completely rotten. You couldn't use the deck as the floor boards all moved as did... More
