I stayed in January at Casa del Sol Villas( Villa of the Full Moon). It was amazing. I did a lot of research to try and find the best place to stay in Koh Tao. What I really liked is how well described the place was by the owner Christina, and lovely manager Patricia. They answered my many questions thoroughly and with detail. I felt really looked after even before I arrived. Koh Tao is a unique island, that is still developing. The view was over another small island where we went snorkelling. I recommend snorkelling there on the weekdays, as it gets very crowded on the weekends. Christina and her husband are expert freedivers, and own several dive shops that teach this sport. They are committed to Koh Tao, their beloved sport, and the gorgeous villas they created. We were given very good service throughout our stay. The Villa itself was immaculate. Everything about it is really tasteful. It deserves the acknowledgement in architectual excellence I have read in reviews. I've stayed at Koh Samui in a very expensive and well reviewed villa a few years ago, and Casa Del Sol Villas are even more beautiful. They are also 1/3 the price! This place is awesome value for money. In order to get The Best views on the island, theres a steep road up the hill, that can be walked down, but probably challenging to walk up. Many people rent quad bikes, and they have 2 brand new ones available. We took a driver named Bao. He was so helpful and efficient. Koh Tao has many good restaurants and coffee shops. I was suprised at the choices, and quality of the food. I'll be back to this wonderful place.
