We got the cheapest bungalow which was 2000 baht per night. Luckily we could only get one night as it was booked out, as we would have wanted to leave early if we'd booked any more than one night. The view from the bungalow was stunning. The island is beautiful, and the snorkelling is absolutely fantastic. The bungalow had airconditioning, but was very small, had a very hard bed (only slightly softer than a plank of wood), no hot water, and the toilet did not have a modern flush (you have to use a container to pour water into it to flush it). The bathroom also smelt like urine, which was unpleasant. We didn't mind about the bungalow being rustic though, the main issue was the food. There is only one place to eat (the resort) and the food is awful and overpriced. When we greeted the staff in Thai they often just stared at us and wouldn't reply. We had to go and find our own menus and then find someone who would serve us every time. I ordered the lemon squid for dinner and it cost me 400 baht, and I didn't even eat it because it was so tough and horrible. It was only a small pile of squid in the corner of the plate - the rest of the plate was covered with a bad salad and french fries. A small water costs 30 baht, though you do get two free bottles with your room. On the other hand, the staff at the reception were very nice and helpful, and one of them carried our very heavy bag a long way for us. If you're going to book here, please keep in mind that there is a free ferry from Koh Tao to the island. We didn't know that and paid 700 baht for a water taxi to get there. I would recommend just coming to Nangyuan for a day trip. You can still see some stunning views from a short walk to the top of one of the hills, and enjoy the beach for the day, then go back in the afternoon. Don't forget your snorkel! The one disadvantage to this though is that you won't escape the daytripper crowds. If you stay the night at the resort the beach is basically empty between 5pm and 10am.

Room Tip: We had room A6 which has a good view.

What is it:
- an extraordinary beach. Three beachfronts. Excellent possibilities to swim not just lie in the water looking dumb.
- good for snorkelling and diving
- relaxation once the daytime tourist has left the island.
- rather poor service as there is only one restaurant available

We had beach house D9, one of the once closest to the beach. The standard was good and our cleaning lady did a great job. There is nothing happening on this island once the boats are gone and that's great. Just relax and eat very good food in the restaurant if you're okay with relaxed service.

I might go back. Who knows.

We were prepared for daytimes to be packed with day trippers and the rooms themselves were basic but ok considering the location.

What spoiled our visit totally was the rude, unhelpful and unfriendly staff. Food was poor and overpriced. Staying overnight we felt like we were just an inconvenience for the staff who clearly were finished for the day.

(+)the Island is beautiful. Snorkelling is a must and it is one of the best place i have ever seen!
(+)the 2 receptionist were very great and helpfull!

(-)The room was crap! walls were broken and the door on the balcony doesn't close well so red ants could enter. First time I used my mosquito net! The Bed was EXTREMELY hard. i woke twice in the night because my back was hurting.
(-)The food! It was poisonous. We ordered 1 Green curry chicken and 1 Red curry prawn. The Green tasted fish and the red tasted knacki orange sausage that are served at breakfast. You know why?? because they don't wash their frying pan! Plus, I asked the waiter to try this fish-chicken green curry: "sir it is the taste of the green curry in thailand, this is how it is!". (I have been eating gren curry for 3 weeks...)
The morning after I was ill...

You should spend ONE night at this hotel because you could see this beautiful island without anybody! But no more than one night!
