Reviewed November 14, 2011

My partner and I stayed here whilst visiting the island for a wedding. Absolute bargain for the price we paid. Loved the staff, room and food. There is such a relaxed and inviting atmosphere to the place. Beautiful setting too! We shall definitely return to Wind Beach should we go back to Koh Tao...

We ate here several times as the green chicken curry was delicious and the staff was friendly, it was in front of Sairee beach and had free internet acces. There was also a free pool table and alwas had a nice chilled out atmosphere. The place was offering accomodation as well but we can not review on that. I would recommend this place to eat and chill out.

So this place is cheap, relatively speaking! We got a room, like the terrace bungalow, not the hut for B1000 per night for 5 nights low season! On first impression the place seems ok, it has AC, TV and hot water! That is about it!
We left after 2 nights, the bathroom wasn't very clean there was mould on the ceiling and the water smelled when it was running. Also on the bed there was a sheet on the bottom and a towelling sheet on top so very rough to sleep under also there were stains on the bed clothes. We were there for two nights and on the room was never cleaned, when you consider that you have to put toilet paper in the bin and not down the toilet (as is common in Asia) this is really disgusting!
There seem to be a lot of staff but I have no idea what they do, when we were at the beach bar they never even offered us a menu and seemed put out when we ordered a drink. There was on girl there who was lovely but that was it we couldn't wait to get out!

We booked an air-conditioned room for 3 nights for around 1500 baht / night (not cheap, huh?) When we checked in, we found that the floor of the room is full of sand and the bedsheets looked yellow in color. We doubted that if anyone cleaned up the room...Ok...fine...and then in the middle of the night, I felt quite uncomfortable while sleeping on the bed. When I opened my eyes, I saw a COCKROACH on the bed!!!! I quickly turned on the light and my boyfriend even found another COCKROACH in the toilet!!! Oh my god....we couldn't stand with it at all. Therefore, on the next day, we booked another room nearby which is very clean and tidy. It costs only 1000baht / night. Actually there are many nice hotels nearby offering good rooms.

Undeniably, this "resort" is just next to Sairee Beach which is very convenient in terms of location, but think twice before booking it. If you want to sleep in such a dirty room, go ahead!

We stayed in a newly built deluxe luxury room and were pleasantly surprised how spacious and comfortable the room was. It was nicely decored and had a fridge filled with various different beverages, air conditioning and a king-size bed.

But that's pretty much where the pros ended. First of all, no cleaning during our entire stay! Our friends room was cleaned once, but just because they happened to pump into one of the cleaning ladies and asked for it!

The location is noisy as hell, the road leading to the beach through the resort is busy 24/7. Dogs, scooters, small trucks, partying people.. Also the noise from nearby bars (including the resorts own by the beach) keeps you awake at night.

The personnel was quite nice but the whole "system" they had with the reservations and billing was not organized at all. Our laundry nearly got lost, huge hassel with meal orders every time and when it came to payment of our meals, drinks, laundry and minibar when we were leaving, I never got to see any kind of receipts, just total amount was given to me hand written to a piece of paper and that's was it.

Room had to be paid when checking in and according to hotel policy you have to notify the reception one day before you leave or else they will charge you extra (don't ask me why).

Breakfast was a complete joke. On the menu there are loads of breakfast items to choose from but guess what the hotel guests had to eat every single day? Coffee, juice(not fresh), toast, fried eggs and bacon. Nothing else couldn't be chosen from the large variety. After one day we ended up eating breakfast from a buffet in a nearby hotel at only 150BHT.

So to sum it up, there are better options at Sairee beach where you can get a bit more for what you've paid for. Wouldn't go back to this resort.

I had a fantastic stay at wind resort, basic rooms, very good prices and the restaurant is right on the beach for the evening sunset with dinner and drinks. The staff at wind beach are great, really accommodating and a lot of fun. The location is in the middle of the nightlife of sairee beach without being on top of it, so after partying on the beach you can escape back to your room to relax.

This is a budget resort so if you're looking for something fancy you might want to try somewhere else. That said, there were some new 'premium' rooms just being finished when I left and they looked very nice, so maybe if you have a little bit more to spend these might be an option for you.

I will definitely be going back to wind resort when I next visit koh tao.
