Reserved through www.booking.com for one night before head off to Samui, found it look great on the site and nice location. Of course, I do agree with the location but a bit down with the free wi-fi for public area but only lobby and restaurant not at the pool. Network quite poor, but might be good if you paid for it, as they provide the password for a fee.

Two row in the middle of shower, the water cut off while I was rinse my hair, both evening and next morning that I have to used the drinking water to rinse and wash my face, around 30 mins the water come back to function again.

The nice thing was free shutter to the pier and pick up as well, but you need to ask them for that detail. They are not willing to tell you all about their service at first step. All you need you have to required and find out, if not you will miss their service.

The location is perfect as it is right on the beach, but at the same time on the main road. Stayed here for 8 days as we took our diving certificate. The price is really good if you buy a diving package. if not it is mid-budget. We stayed in a bungalow w/fan and no aircon. We managed without, but if you suffer from heat you should consider airconditioned room.
Enjoyed our stay very much.
If there is one negative thing it is that theres ants, or at least in our room. We had a bag of caramels, and some cans of soda that were invated by ants.
As it is i the middle of Sairee beach it is short walking distance(3 minutes) to the shops, beach bar(Lotus) etc. and 10 minutes walking to beachclubs, such as fishbowl, etc.

Breakfast inculded if you want.

This resort has a great location between the main road and the beach and the rooms and reception look fantastic, but they let themselves down on too many fronts for me to recommend it. For starters our triple garden view room had a definite "drain" smell which didn't disappear for the duration of our stay. The shower also sprayed all over the place resulting in a permanently wet bathroom. The gardens, path and pool area are all unkempt which lets the whole resort down. No free wifi in rooms so you have to go to reception to use wifi or pay to use one of their computers. The restaurant across the road on the beach is where you have breakfast - its a buffet with quite a wide selection (western style, fruit, thai food) but EVERYTHING was cold and tasteless - oh and runs out towards 9.30am! Suggest you get there super early if you want anything vaguely warm or fresh. In fact the only day we enjoyed breakfast was the day we went diving and missed the buffet - they allowed us to use our breakfast coupon later on in the day and got freshly cooked fried rice and a cup of decent (and hot!) coffee.

Had a lovely room with a nice 4 poster, very clean and in a fantastic location about 2 mins from the beach!
Recommend lotus bar, turn right as you leave the hotel and it's down a road on you left, really cool place with live music on the beach.
Can't fault the place at all and the staff were polite and helpful.

Seashells has a good dive school, but otherwise it is a really bad place to stay on Koh Tao. We wouldnt normally comment on tripadvisor (giving most places the benefit of the doubt), but feel pretty strongly about this place. To put it simply, the staff are terrible. They resent any question, particulary any request for new towels or to sort out the bed bugs in your bed. Most of the time we would turn up to reception without any form of acknowlegdment. You will ask for something (such as clean towels) after waiting for 24 hours, and they will stare at you like you are crazy. The restaurant staff dont seem to be able to listen (they delivered every order late and got most things wrong as well). I know it is pretty damning to give a bad tipadvisor review, but I feel very strongly about this place. Do not stay here.

Room Tip: Please do not stay here
