We stayed there so often and never really took the time to give it a rating on this site ... so, here it comes!;-)
My boyfriend (Mark) and me we are both working and living on the very nearby island Koh Nangyuan. Each time we come over to the "big rock" (Koh Tao) we check into Seashell Resort, our 2nd home by now... we love the atmosphere over there, the staff is very friendly and the bungalows (we tried different price ranges) are always clean and comfy. The whole resort looks very fancy, located in a beautiful garden setting and the luxury pool area is great to just relax or watching the divers doing their confined sessions. Both of us are dive instructors as well, and worked for Seashell Divers for years and loved it!!
It upsets a bit to read some of these bad reviews the resort got, especially when it comes to the staff ... our own experience as a resort customer is the complete opposite!
During our time working there we did notice though, that a lot of customers approach the resort reception and restaurant staff really rude, so "what comes around goes around", i guess ... we never saw the staff being unfriendly unless the customers were absolutely rude! It is NOT the cheapest Backpacker place you can find on Koh Tao, so our advice is that if it's not your price range, don't be unpleasant trying to bargain too much , just find yourself some different accommodation and everybody will be happy-as!;-)
Overall we would like to highly recommend the Resort as well as the Dive Shop: great location, great set-up, great staff, great standards ... great fun! ;-)
