I came here with no former knowledge on a spur of the moment booking and found it to be wonderful from the start. It is situated at the quieter end of the Island but as it is not a big island and a jeep/car/bike hire literally at the bottom of the drive who would want to stay anywhere else. I...

What no picture can explain is the terrible smell that is in these rooms and the absolute rudeness that we were shown by management and reception staff. We are very calm people and do not look for any trouble and had been enjoying a 3 week trip around Thailand. This utterly ruined our holiday and I am determined that anyone...

Ban Kao Tropical is one of the first places that I am reviewing, for two...

The residence is 10 minutes walk away from a beautiful and very quiet beach of fine white sand ... more   less
