AC Resort is centrally localted at the main beach of Koh Tao - it operates several bungalows ranging from fan to A/C situated in a green, tropical environment. The resort futures a pool, a restaurant, a bar and discounted rooms in case you book dive lessons with one of the local schools (Phoenix divers - highly recommended).
The central location makes it a perfect homebase for diving, eating, accessing the beach and exploring the island. So far, so perfect. Unfortunately the overweight guy at the reception is so unfriendly that he not only deserves to be mentioned here but that it also leaves you sometimes just speechless. He might have had a bad day or whatever kind of problems, but in this case he had the same problems several times with different people.
The attached restaurant and bar overlooking the beach offer stunning views at sunset and reasonable food at decent prices - the service especially in the restaurant is totally dependent of your waiter. Some are just too busy chatting that they just can't take your order within 15 min while others will be fast and friendly.
The second thing to point out is the totally disatrous state in which the bathrooms of some of the fan-bungalows are. Mouldy walls, uncleaned, no real ventilation, no flush toilets - we are surely not picky but here a stroke of work wasn't done in years. If you don't believe it just have a look by by yourself. During one weeks we only got new towels after asking for them at the reception, the rooms weren't cleaned in this period.
Long story short told this resort offers great value for your money and we would have given the full rating but the above mentioned points are so prominent, that they are just not acceptable.
