“NEVER STAY HERE”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 7, 2013

Been traveling for 4 months and this is by far the worst place I have stayed at. First we were told a cheaper price by the sales person on the boat and arrived to find the price was a lot more. The fan bungalow we stayed was filthy when we check in (bird poo on sheets, no sheet on bed, very poor wiring for power points) the bathroom was small and dirty, there was a massive spider in the bathroom that was eating a cockroach. Mozzies got into the room all night so we got no sleep. The pool smelt like stagnant water. Just over all a terrible experience.

THB1,500 gets you an aircon double room with hot water (weak) shower. I love Koh Tao so don't mind where I'm staying. I can understand some of the unhappy comments below but ultimately, this is a cheaper option on a bustling part of the island. It is advisable to wear mossie spray when you sleep as these are bamboo huts on stilts. If you're looking for a more rough & ready Thailand, then stay here. If you want luxury, keep walking.

The staff are a bit grumpy and said that we had to stay a minimum of 2 nights. However, with a ferry out the next day, we managed to talk them into letting us stay for one.

Room Tip: Always ask to look at the room before handing over any money. Check the aircon & the shower pres...

The rooms were mouldy and not cleaned well. The general standard was below what we expected from the booking site. There was an incredible small bathroom, with mouldy walls and a mouldy smell. There were also construction work going on from 7 am every morning. When we asked in the reception if we could change the room, they were rude and not helpful at all. They refused to help us, and claimed there was nothing wrong with anything in their rooms. There were also very loud sounds from the bullfrogs living under the bungalows, between midnight and 6am, so we couldn't sleep. We checked out after 3 days, even though we had payed for 5. The receptionist seemed mad because we chose to leave earlier! She was incredible rude - we've never experienced anything like it. DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL!!!!

The rooms were poor, there were hundreds of LOUD toads mating in the resort canals, the beds were hard, bugs and cockroaches, they overcharged us 200 baht per night compared to what we initially agreed on. Overall, we were not impressed.

In our room (cottage garden), there was mould in the bathroom walls, dirty windows, mirrors, walls, and the bathroom was so tiny that we almost had to sit on the toilet while showering. We asked to switch rooms the first day of our stay, but they said that "all rooms are same". We stayed for three nights (out of 5 as planned), but barely got any sleep because of noise, especially from a bullfrog-choir in under our cottage-it sounded like 10 cows were standing around our cottage-moaning all night. Then there were construction-workers in the cottage next door, hammering away from 07 am. As mentioned, we checked out and booked another hotel after 3 days. All in all - the experience was not pleasant, and I would advise everyone-especially those traveling with children from staying here.

We paid £28 a night to stay at AC resort (we ended up only staying for one night). The room was basic with unclean towels and bed sheets. Extremely overpriced, this room should of only cost £10 a night at most. Wouldn't recommend.

Good value for money. The entrance is amazing. The rooms are small hut like. Cleanliness is average. Very, very close to the Sairee beach. Pool is good fun, get a small ball and black some hand ball in the waters. Too many lady boys at the counters though

Room Tip: Its close to the beach, they have good snorkeling trips.
