Not specially good or memorable, but cheap room, very convenient because of the discount that goes with the diving course that you choose. You can choose the dorm or private bungalow (more expensive). I chose the dorm because there were very few people and I was lucky to have to room for myself the first night. Good location

Location very good and view from restaurant next to the beach is beautiful......however, what a disappointment with everything else. We stayed in the garden bungalows. Our bungalow was dreadful.....it was not very clean. Only a thin sheet over a bare mattress with another sheet to sleep in, I didn't dare to look at the state of the mattress!! The bathroom...

The bungalows were centrally located-- easy walk to stores and restaurants. Pool is nice. It's a great spot for cheap. Clean and staff is nice. Wifi is very spotty though-- works well in lobby but in bungalow is not reliable. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars.

Cabins are tiny, two large adults could barely stand in it at the same time, shower is over the toilet bowl, no closet/shelves, barely enough space to open one suitcase. No blankets, just cover sheets so you can't leave the air on at night... Chairs om the porch were pretty small too. Staff was not too friendly. The pool is...

Where can I start with this shocking establishment if you can call it that. This is by far the worst place I have ever stayed in. Incompetent, rude mannerless staff. We arrived to be shown our room. Within minutes I found myself at the reception to be spoken to only be smiled at and mocked. Staff are very smug, she...

Koh Tao has plenty of accommodation options of varying quality but I would recommend the Seashell resort. Well located right on the beach with some of the best bars on the islands only a short walk away. Rooms are modern and clean and above all this place is good value and staff friendly..The restaurant and breakfast is so-so - average...

The rooms are amazing, the location is amazing. The restaurant is very average, the trouble with the restaurant is that it allows non-guests to dine there, it gets very very busy, my children had to wait 1hour 40mins for their meal, adults meals were fine as they were ordered separately from the BBQ, no real apology was offered, I was...

perfectly situated.. only a 10 minute drive from the port and right on the beach practically. Rooms big & spacious as well as comfy, quite a big complex, all the facilities were nice especially the pool. You walk just outside the pool, cross a path to the Seashell restaurant where they serve amazing food, western and Thai as well as...

Very stubborn and almost rude receptionist. The breakfast was awful and full of mosquitos flying around the uncovered food. The waiters were kids playing with each other instead of helping us. The rooms were average and definitely overpriced. The only good thing about this hotel is probably the nice location. Would never go back.

OK so anywhere on this island is a great location as the island is so small. But this hotel was set just off the main tourist road where you could find all the shops, bars and restaurants you will ever need!! Plus the beach is directly over the road, the hotel is set in gardens and are all in 2...
