“Ideal for all”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

We were accommodated at very short notice. Provided with massive amounts of info and maps, not only for Koh Tao but also Chumpon and Bangkok. The room was ideal, the bed was definitely one of the most comfortable we have had whilst travelling. The location is perfect, the whole island is pretty much within walking distance - the walk to Sairee beach takes about 10 to 15 mins minutes. In our room we had a nice big fridge and TV with DVD player (and hundreds of dvds to choose from). We were really sad to have only stayed 3 nights and if we weren't travelling against a tight timescale we would have stayed for at least 6 nights.

This is not the place you go to for views, luxury or romance. Its definitely a budget guest house, but the rooms are clean, bed is comfortable and there's AC. The staff is also very informative and helpful. If I was on a trip with my girlfriend I probably wouldn't stay here, but it's definitely good for friends trying to save money and enjoy the island.

Dear Guests,
Many thanks for sparing your time in writing a review on trip Advisor after your stay spent in our Guesthouse last January..Also I would like to thank you for your comments about the info service of Som and also about the work of Ploy. We are located at 2 minutes from the beach, and fortunately our guests, young or old couples and families are happy with this quiet situation. On the other hand , having a cocktail in front of your bungalow and enjoying the sunset is for sure a more romantic place with your girlfriend, you are right
Greetings from Koh Tao !

This place is clean, centrally located and great value for money. On arrival, they take a good half hour to explain about the island and different trip options with zero attempts to sell you anything. Just give you the info and invitation to book through them. For the first time in Thailand, these guys actually give you discounts from normal travel and tour prices rather than try to charge extra!

A few unexpected perks were the huge fridge, kettle, deposit box (hardly anywhere we stayed had one so far) and a vast DVD collection. We're here to relax, not to party and this place is nice and quiet. It is next to a road that is a bit busy, so you do get traffic noise, but no loud bar music or drunken guests hollering in the early hours.

I would recommend for couples and families, but not party people - they will throw you out :-)

We stayed at Captain Nemos for 5 nights and on our arrival Som met us at the 7/11 near the ferry port to walk the small distance (3 mins) back to her guesthouse.

Both Som and her husband Philippe were very helpful in offering advice for the island and in general trying to ensure our stay was as good as it could be.

We stayed during Songkrahn (Thai new year) and spent the day with Som her daughter Ploy and a few other guests from Captain Nemo's having a water fight. It was brilliant fun, Philippe even cooked food for us to eat and alcohol was provided which was over and above our expectations really making us feel part of the family.

The guesthouse is perfectly located within Koh Tao with easy access to local restaurants, dive centres, the fery terminal and the beaches. Our room itself was probably the comfiest we have stayed in during our travels in Thailand. It's waned every day by Ploy and the room we had, had air con and a fan plus a big fridge to store food and drink in. On the days we went to the beach Som even leant us beach towels!

Overall I couldn't recommend this guesthouse enough and if we get the chance to come back to Koh Tao we will definitely be booking to stay at Captain Nemo's.

Fantastic family run guesthouse on Koh Tao. Rooms are spacious with fridge, kettle and t.v/DVD player (everything you could possibly need.) Towels are changed and the bed is re-made on a daily basis, this was the first time in our 3 weeks stay in Thailand this happened! Som & Phillipe were so helpful during our stay, advising us on good places to eat, beaches to visit etc. We used the free snorkelling gear for 2 days to explore the bays on the island and then booked our transport to Bangkok through Som as well who arranged everything. As previously mentioned by other guests the dvd selection is HUGE!! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay,and would have stayed longer if we hadn't planned to be in Chiang Mai for Songkran!

Lovely clean room, excellent facilities and the customer service was unbeatable. Good location near the harbour and plenty of nice resturants and bars nearby. Was a nice touch having a large selection of DVDs you could borrow. Enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend!

The lady who runs Captain Nemo,'Som' she's great and she seems to know everyone and everywhere on the island. She will definitely go out of her way to help you settle in and have a great time on the rock.

The rooms were good - everything you could possibly need including a decent A/C.
We spent five nights at Captain Nemo and never had a bad nights rest.

Would of preferred it if the pool table was still available to use downstairs and somewhere to hangout.
