First of all very very rude and poor display of customer service.. Personally the place was run down and dirty and nothing was clean.. On arrival had to ask to get room clean.. First night was nothing but Boom Boom Boom and not many people partying but th ed noise continued.. I left and went to better cleaner quieter resort...

After an hr hike through the jungle to get there (no road access) we were surprised at the lack of staff. It all seemed like they were hiding, and were not to be found during our stay. The kitchen was a bit messy, and the whole place was untidy. We did not appreciate the shards of glass everywhere, and it...

We've stayed 2 nights in this hotel really well situated. The room is ok, big enough and "clean" (350baths its obviously not a palace). Concerning the bugs, they are holes on the bottom and top of the door so no protection at all! And of course mosquito sticks during the nights. Besides Windows broken so we can hear the music...

After getting off the boat from Koh Samui we were bombarded by locals trying to sell their services. The owner of this place was among the crowd of locals trying to get backpackers to stay on her property. After a little convincing we agreed to spend at least one night there to check it out. The owner, Ping Pong was...

Seems like we feel the same as previous reviews. My wife and I went there one day on our scooter, the resort is set in an amazing bay, clear water, and fun snorkeling, and the owner(Ping Pong) seemed very freindly. However were staying at another resort and decided to spend our last night in Koh Toh at Ping Pongs cabins....

Rats for sure!!!! Loud club music at night from the bar!!!!A very psyho owner (ping pong). Don't expect a nice evening looking at the ocean on a private beach, you won't get that here. We have traveled all around the world and do not recommend this place. Good luck......................

The bungalows are very very basic, and nobody ever cleans them. On my arrival I found a rat (alive!) in the only drawer...apparently he had been living there for weeks! If you want clean towels,sheets or toilet paper you have to ask for them. The kithchen looks quite dirty and the service is incredibily slow (an hour for tea and...

Only stayed here one night while travelling through the country but it was definately one of the highlights of the trips and the best accomodation we had.. Great food, great huts, great beach and an amazing feel about it

If you want time on the beach and don't care about getting around, this is your place! It's secluded, quiet, a perfect location on a perfect little bay. The bay's coral is quite bleached, but that's typical for shallows in Thailand now. :( However, there are 10-20 small sharks living there that are fascinating to watch while snorkeling--they're not dangerous....
