We stayed here in the frangipani bungalow for 3 nights at the end of our trip. The resort is on south side with amazing views over the ocean.The hosts, Rose and Libor, really set this place apart from anywhere else we stayed on the trip thanks to their great, warm manner.
Our room was very clean and comfortable with access to 2 terraces, a hammock, a mini bar and an outdoor shower. The terraces both have great views over the ocean and are very peaceful. There are only 4 rooms at the resort so even if it is full it still feels very private. The minibar is stocked with a selection of drinks that are the same prices as the 7-Eleven and you can opt to have whatever mix you require. The shower was quite low pressure due to the resort using rainwater on a gravity system but as the water is a precious resource in Koh Tao then this shouldn't be a problem.
Breakfast is served each morning for 250B per person. The crepes were particularly good and the fresh fruit, toast and coffee are all delicious. In fairness I found the evening meal option at 600B per person excluding drinks to be quite an expensive option compared to the local alternatives (you should be comparing to the local prices rather than working out in your home currency). The food is prepared to your individual tastes and was very tasty but I think if you are opting for a vegetarian meal then it should be a little cheaper. The Eagle view restaurant nearby is very good, just make sure you take a torch so you can find your way back afterwards.
It should be noted that if you want a relaxing, secluded place then this is excellent but if you want to be able to go out in the evening then you may find the location a little difficult. For what we wanted, it was perfect.
The 2 beaches are easy to get to, unless you have some problem walking up and down steep hills. It takes around 10 minutes to walk up at our pace but as Rose reminded us, what's the rush - you're on holiday! Shark bay is great for snorkelling and there are plenty of trees on the beach to offer that all important shade. The other beach has a nice bar/restaurant on it.
As others have said, ask Libor to sort the cab out for you.
