We came to kho Tao for the diving and liked the price combo for stay and diving course. Our first room was a fan room. It's super basic and really dirty, dead bugs and webs all over. No one cleans these rooms, the maids simply leave a new towel and maybe a new cover sheet but not bottom sheet or linens.
We requested to change to a AC room after our first 2 days. So when that came we went to the desk to change and suddenly the ppl in that room extended their stay. Suuuuure.
So next day we finally get our AC room for a 600 baht (20usd) a night fee. The AC is stuck on 24C (75.5F) and u cannot Change it. If I'm paying 20$ extra a night at this shythole for AC I want to be able to adjust it lower than that!
Oh and the best part..i wake up itching in the night and see blood stains on the sheets (sign of bed bugs) I see one and kill it..but realize I should have kept it as proof. So next night I wake up at 3 AM and what do u know, a big brown bed bug right under me. I took pics and bagged it this time as proof and will deal with it in the AM as I'm on the beach chairs now at 5am not wanting to lay in that bed bug infested room, and who knows if they got into my luggage or clothing and will carry on to my next destination or home!! Place is gross! Will see what mgmt will do about it in the morning, but we already planned to leave this morning.
On a side note the diving was great and the class was good..but hotel is gross!
The little guy with pony tail from Burma is nice.
