“Beautiful beachfront view, watchout for HOT rooms”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2010

My wife and I were on a honeymoon and Koh Tao was the first stop. We decided to take the best room at the Koh Tao Regal Resort. At 4900 Baht a night it was pricey for what you get. We were within walking distance of the pier that we came off of (Mae Head) from the Lomprayah ferry. The dive resort (Crystal Dive) was also within waking distance. This property was beach front an had a gorgeous pool and view of the beach. Couldn't beat the scenery and the beautiful balcony we had in our room. The hotel was fairly new, and rooms were clean. Also a very quiet place, not crowded (esp with these prices). My experiences did not start off well. The staff was helpful and friendly, but English was difficult and they put us in a regular room at first. Eventually I asked to move to the large room we had originally paid for but here was the big gotcha in both the rooms we tried here: unless you have your key card in a slot inside the room, the electricity for the whole room is OFF. This means the tiny A/C unit inside each room is off and takes FOREVER to even start cooling. Our first day in our room was incredibly hot, and finally during the night we were finally able to bring it down to a decent temperature. It was also annoying that asking for an extra key was out of the question unless i put down a 500 BAHT deposit. Overall, we just had to settle in and realize we were not really at a world class facility in terms of service. I give this an average rating because even though everything was fairly nice, the annoyances in service and underpowered AC units made it a bit tough for this high price
