“Bad accommodation & poor security”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

I stayed in the garden villa (hut) triple room for 4 nights. The balcony was never cleaned up. The floor always had a layer of sand even after clean up. The air con was a dripping noice making machine without blowing. I had to change to another room though the reception arranged repairing. The toilet was very basic. The most disappointed was two pairs of my son's corrective contact lenses with cases left on the bedside table were found missing after our day trip. We search the entire room with nil result and neither asking the staff to help. It's hard to understand why the person stole the lenses which could not sell for money. The only person was the cleaning staff but reception replied they've questioned them and no one will admit of course. If you only consider the location, you can choose Sairee Hut, otherwise stay away from it.

I stayed there in four nights. The room was dirty, the water flowed up from the shower and someone in the neighbour room got electricity through the water in the sink. And the breakfast was dry and tasted ugly. I am never going back to this hotel.

Ok, for some reason Koh Tao places seem to have the market cornered on cold water showers and this resort is no exception. My wife thought the pillow was too hard and the a/c in our standard room needed a boost from the fan to keep things comfortable.

All the same, beginning with smiling "Ja" at the registration desk through to the maintenance and trip planning staff, courteous service went a long way to point where we will want to return. When the room had a few problems, they came right away to fix them and then returned quickly when the slow drain fix did not help much at first. Our room was made up with fresh bedding each day and if the pillows were firm, the bed was quite comfortable compared to the concrete slabs we've often encountered in Asia.

The location on the beach is ideal and we were in #17, just far enough away from the night party noise, but just a short stroll to the waves and the two pools that made for a relaxing place to hang out during the day. The competition for sunbeds in the shade was a challenge but just sitting on the beach at a table enjoying the food offerings was not a bad way to go.

The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have had and the evening BBQ on the beach was another easy choice. We had the skewered mix of chicken, pork and beef which was marinated and tasted so good we had the same meal on our last night there. The full course meal was only 190 baht...a great value.

They offered free pick-up and return to the pier and the travel person there set us up with the best ferry to Samui. Diving is certainly available as a choice but there was no pressure.

Sairee Beach is a great place to enjoy the waveless water and there is still some decent snorkeling on the very north end. Sairee Beach Huts offered us a good base from which to enjoy the island.

Room Tip: The standard room was a good choice. I preferred this location and the room to the higher cost supe...

The Sairee Hut Dive Resort had a good location on Sairee Beach, but hotel was quite average. The room was a bit worn and not overly clean, and it's one of the only places I've seen without hot water ...I know it's the tropics and the water is never COLD, but it's nice to have a hot shower ...I guess I just expected it at a place like this! There was a nice little pool, and a nice patio area in front of the huts. Okay, but a bit overpriced for what you get!

Was an average resort with average service, with exception of one friendly staff.. Otherwise the location was good as it is close to nightspots yet still away from the noise. You will still be able to get your sleep in peace. Wifi was not so strong in the rooms as the entire resort is spread out longitudinally. Takes a while to walk in from the main road to the reception.

Far enough away from the craziness to chill and close enough to stumble home and right on the beach! I traveled solo and met a bunch of people and they moved to Saireehut Resort!!! The staff was super helpful as we didn't have reservations. I stayed in two rooms with AC the second was a bungalow not connected and the AC leaked...who cares.... cheap - clean and nice people that worked there. You can't go wrong.

Have stayed on Tao many times over the last few years but genearally with the missus. This year on my own and the best priced room with a hotel with pool was sairee hut and away from the madness. Room was basic as there older but had a tv. Good air con, fan with double and single bed. No warddrobe of any kind, so single bed was what I used. Water Nd clean towels nd sheets every day and staff really nice. Only problems was that there was on two power oulets so either the tv was on meaning the fridge melted and you get the drift. Cold shower but knew that prior. For the price I recommend it to anyone and pool is nice and right on beach. Biggest letdown was breakfast. Was terrible plus started at 7:30 so for an island known for diving this was a pain. Variety lacking and same with quality. EnEnded up just going elsewhere and gave my tokens to a couple who went once and never again but I defo recommend to stay. New rooms at from look nice but I personally would stay elsewhere for those prices but everyone to there own they just didn't have any wow factor.
