Resort might be a stretch. Bungalows in courtyard right off the beach is more accurate. Fan and air con available. A fan room was fine in early October. Very basic accommodations but you can't beat the price for being right on the beach. Each room has a porch and you can hear waves crashing from your room. The room smelled...

The accommodations were basic but very peaceful. Baan Kao Bay is away from Sairee Beach and all the Parties. It is tranquil with the High Bar just across the street up on the mountain. The views are amazing of the bay. just next to the big Fish is a great little bar on the beach playing reggae music. The bartenders...

We stayed for 2 nights and had no problems at all. The staff were friendly and kind and the accomodation was clean, cheap and on the beach. We came straight off the boat and found the huts on arrival so didn't read the reviews thank god as I would never have booked it otherwise and it was perfect for us...

Found this place when going south on koh tao, and it looked really nice by the beach. Ran away in the middle of the night because the bed was crawling with fleas. Got our money back though, even if they were veeery surprised about the bed bugs (yeah right) Don't stay here!

We had a room with AC overlooking the ocean and paid 1000 baht per night. We stayed for 4 nights. Nice room with an amazing view. The garden is very cozy and romantic, perfect for couples and families. On koh tao I think this is one of the cozier and more quiet places still located on a bigger beach. Really...

!!!!!DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!! I have never had such an awful experience on a holiday! We spent one night here and it made the rest of our two week holiday ruined. When we arrived we were shown to our room, we paid for two nights up front. We dumped our bags and went straight out onto the beach! We spent...

This place was totally perfect for me. I took an air con room which was 1000 bhat per night (room 11). It has the most wonderful views across the bay and is in the centre of the beach which was perfect. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. Hot shower, air con and fan and a TV....

“Not a tip about the room, but if you need any tickets or advice about travel plans, we strongly reccomend the girl at Namhasin travel. She speaks very good English and is very competent. It's on the "main road", about a 5 minute walk from the Seven 11, walking away from the sea, on the corner of the road to Shark Bay.”
