The location is a little inconvenient to travel to. We had a very crazy taxi drive there from the main pier as the terrain is very steep and hilly. The walk to the bungalow was incredibly steep at times. We had backpacks so this was a little easier for us, but one member of our group had hurt her foot... More

Don't expect luxury - the accommodation is fine - a bit run down. The bathroom is always wet because of the shower water not draining easily. The rooms are not serviced and the aircon doesn't work. Fans only work between 6 and 6pm. However!!! The the position of view rock was so lovely. The snorkeling was the best I have... More

I am so glad I left my previous dirty bungalow for this one! The place looks like a village in the rocks, very original. I was very nicely welcomed and was given a super clean room, with a wonderful view over the ocean! I had a balcony with 2 chairs and a small table to relax too. The restaurant was... More

Set amongst well-tendered gardens on a steep slope overlooking Hin Wong Bay, the immaculate and affordable bungalows offer great views. The staff are excellent and very helpful. Without a beach, the resort provides easy sea access to the reef and a large deck. Great place to stay if you love snorkelling. The food is only average.

Bottom line: If you want some of the very best snorkelling in Thailand, you should go here. Our room was pleasant (although bed was very firm even by Thai standards) and had one of the most awesome views of any place I've ever stayed. Clean and tidy, but definitely not fancy. Power for fan and lights only from 18:00-06:00.. Quibbles... More

Ting picked us up at the Pier, away from all the trouble straight to the paradise on earth. Freindliest Stoff i ever had. Nice view from our Bungalow. Even the food was awesome. It is a bit away from alle the trouble, thats why you have to drive 20 Minutes from the Pier, but you will never find a paradise... More

Me and my boy friend arrived on Koh Tao via ferry to find view rock staff waiting for us, after a short wait we set off for the resort. The resort is a bit out of the way which was perfect for a few nights, the journey from the pier to the resort was only around 15 minutes but felt... More

We booked this place in a bit of a rush as could not find anywhere else on Ko Tao. Well, when we arrived we thought we had made a massive mistake. The place is very tired and worn down and we had to ask to change rooms. However, once we settled in, the place did grow on us. The snorkeling... More
