“Good value hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2012

I really liked the hotel when you consider what you are paying. The best things about it are:
1. Friendly staff
2. Free breakfast
3. Very close to a nice beach
4. Quiteish resort (apart from the tut tut with the lights and bass box).
5. Free drinks on your arrival
6. Nice pool

The downsides are that the family rooms look out on to electricity pylons and there is no hot running water (apart from very old electric showers) in the room.

Taxis to the resort were ok, but more expensive going back.

We stayed in October 2011. Deluxe villa with terrace overlooking the pool, great for pre-breakfast reading or an evening relaxing. Room was clean and comfortable. Close to all restaurants,bars and shops but fairly quiet in October. Friendly service. We rented a car and parked it inside the gates. Beach is just across the road. In October there are few jet skis, we didn't get the rain which stayed in the North. We liked the place so much and were fully enjoying volunteering at Soi Dog Foundation so we decided to stay a second week.They maintained our special negotiated rate for the rest of our stay.

Room Tip: Try booking through an agent that negotiates rates for late reservations.

We stayed here for 3 nights for a wedding slightly further north and was glad to get away from Kata/Paton which felt more like Magaluff. This place had a nice small pool but was very close to the big lovely beach, which had jet skiis! Nice enough restaurant attached with 10% off for residents.

Big clean rooms and interesting bathroom design. Only criticisms are that the beds were a little too firm, shower pressure was sometimes useless and the free wifi failed to work in our room.

Was a good place for a few nights stay although wouldn't want to stay for a whole holiday purely due to the location. Night life was pretty much non existent and it seemed to be a popular beach for Russian families, not that I have any main problem wth them at all. If you are young Koh Phi Phi is the place to head to, which is where we went next!

Hi, I stayed here 7 nights in jan 2012. As I was alone I had a huge room with 2 double bed so I could jump between the 2 :P
I had a nice stay, the staff is very nice and friendly, clean big room, 45 seconds walk to the beach... however if you want a "beach" tip please walk for at least 10 minutes down the beach: there the sea is clear and not as in he beginning: someone explain me that there is where they discharge all the sewage system from the hotels around.. that's why wasn't that clean!
The only problem with Bang Tao and not with the hotel, is that the area is really full of Russian (just few people from anywhere else) and there is almost nothing going on in the evening so you need either to rent a scooter (much cheaper option) or take a tuk tuk/taxi to go somewhere more lively.

Admittedly chosen primarily for the location but expected much better for the price. Pool area and gardens are clean and private. We stayed in a deluxe villa but it was far from it. The bed was like sleeping on a slab of marble. Rooms were large but basic and looked in need of an update. Bedding and towels a little worn.Quiet in the day but kept awake until 5am by 2 bars that came to life at 11pm opposite.
Breakfast was 'interesting' - staff simply added water to the teapot and reused the teabags. Fruit consisted of melon or melon. Hot food had been standing far too long making the eggs look like rubber. Thank heavens for toast! Staff almost ignored the guests.

The welcome we received from the receptionist when we arrived just before midnight after a somewhat stressful journey (long haul flight had been delayed, resulting in a Home Alone-style run through Bangkok airport to catch our connection!) was just wonderful. The bungalow was really nice - large bed in a good-sized room, situated near the pool.
The music from the bar behind our bungalow was quite loud, but we were so tired that it didn't affect us at all. The room and bathroom were both clean, so you can't ask for much more really!
The breakfast is good, and there is a taxi 'depot' (if you call them that!) just outside the hotel entrance, which is brilliant for arranging transport to other beaches or to the port. Just crossing the road will take you to the beach, where you pay a small charge for a sun lounger and you can just relax (well, if you ignore the people selling ice creams, clothes and ornaments!).
Overall, a great stay in Bang Tao for us.

One thing I would mention is that the mattresses are very firm. Very! But for me this wasn't a problem as I would prefer a hard mattress over a soft one, and we were also only staying for two nights. If this would cause an issue for you, it may be something to take into consideration.
