just a quick review from me as im still jet lagged :-P
outstanding view !!! especially sunsets, could just watch it forever. loved the infinite pool. walking down the staires just gave you such a buzz
very clean hotel and rooms very nice, classy, well decorated.
staff were very friendly and did what they could
its a fair 15 mins walk to main area, so defo need a bike. but on upside your away from the crowds :) you need to decide if you prefer to have amazing views on cliff top or be right on the beach.
food was a bit hit or miss. pad tai was good but breakfast was usually cold as they bring it down from an outside restaurant i believe, not end of the world.
my room was right next to the small reception area and sadly was pretty noisy especially in the early mornings, i would have been better off with room outside area
the view is that good that sometimes can be blessing in disguise, at times during sunset you had a few other tourists on their ipads facetime giving a loud running commentry, ruining the moment when all you want is piece & quiet. i know im not blaming hotel for that ;)
i probably would return to koh tao and would come back to this hotel :) but also liked the look of the haans hotel on shark bay area
i thought koh tao was beautiful but more touristy than i expected. it was weird seeing non thais working in the bars. bit of a shame that there's padi on every corner, bit overkill imo
