Bang average hotel. The location is good when arriving off the pier - 5 minutes walk, but not for the lively part of Koh Tao. The rooms were very spacious but our room smelt disgusting!! It was the AC, Every time we turned it off the smell went but you had to have it on as it’s so hot!! Another fault is no security at night, when we were there 30 Spanish people decided to jump in the pool at 2am and nobody was about to tell them to get out! The pool is huge but gets very little sun. They offer free shuttles to Sairee beach at certain times but stops at 9pm and they offer some diving with Coral Grand Divers.

Overall - average - would stay elsewhere if I came again.

My travel company

My family and I, which consist of my mother, my baby brother(1 year old) and myself. We stayed at Montra resort for 10 nights.
My uncle and his family came to the hotel a few days before us (we were meeting them there), so I can't say anything about the check-in, but in my understanding, it went smoothly.

Our room

Our room had a very nice big bed, which easy contain 3 full-grown people. The shower works great, but the water had to run for 2-5 minuts before it was ''warm''.

First impression

Our first impression the following morning, was way over expectation. Before we ordered the hotel, I read a lot of bad reviews, but I did not experience any of the things that were described.

Food at the hotel

The breakfast contains almost everything you could think of. At the egg-station, the make any kind of egg that you would like.
The food at the hotel is okay, but you pay way too much. Go find another place to eat.
The location is perfect! In 2 minuts walk, you find youself in the ''city''.


If you want to get some massage, don't take the massage on the hotel, it is too expensive - in thai price of course. If you want some good massage for cheap money, then go to the big road that you meet, when you walk out off the hotel, and the walk forward. When you reach the road, turn left, and the on the right side of the road, when you have walk a bit, you will see a light pink massageshop, that your destinaton. it is where I have gotten the best massage in Thailand.

Tip about hotel room

If you write to the hotel and ask for a price, you will mostly get a better price, than the one the traveling sites offer. If you have written to them and you will mostly be upgraded to a better room, if there is any free, on your dates.

The pool

The pool is great. The two areas is divided with some of the pool, that is not covered in water. Hard to explain, but look at the pictures. There is an area that is only about 1,5 meters. The other area goes from 1,5 meters to 2,5 meters i think it is. This gives plenty of opportunities for all-aged people. every morning the pool is cleaned, so that you won't swim in dirt.

Pool bar

The pool bar is great. It is also here you will get your pool towels. The drinks are okay.


The hotel provides free transport to and from the harbor. If want to get around the island, I would suggest you rent a motorbike. The hotel offers motorbikes, to cheap money.


The hotel collaborate with a diving center called Coral rand diving. The diving instructores speak fluent English, so if you talk a decent English, you should be okay.


Overall I would diffidently return to the hotel. The staff is nice and you feel very welcome.

Me & 3 of my friends booked a family room. It had 2 beds & 2 made up beds.
All were perfect for adults in our opinion. It was a nice big spacious room, it even had a separate room where we could keep our luggage :) It was right beside the pool - I think it may have been room 111.

The pool was lovely although we did not spend too much time there as we only had 3 days in Koh Tao. On arrival we were greeted with some complimentary juice which was a nice touch. The hotel also provides a complimentary shuttle service at particular times to the beach & ferry port. Just make sure to let them know in advance.

To walk to the nearest beach (Sairee Beach) it takes less than 10 minutes.

I would definitely recommend this hotel

Room Tip: ask for a room on the pool level

The location is good and we were picked up at the pier. Even though the room was very spacious, the linen was pretty dirty. After "cleaning" the room smelled like a chemical anything. The food smells like nothing and the kitchen doesnt look hycienical.
