9.0 Excellent
Pros: Delicious breakfast with fresh fruit and Thai dishes! Clean comfortably rooms, big solid lockers under bed. The hostel has lots of activities.
Cons: It was not super social but thanks to the activities easy enough to meet people.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location and the stuff was very kind.
Cons: Maybe the breakfast could vary a little bit more.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Overall fantastic facilities with great atmosphere and extremely nice staff. Hostel organised events were a major plus. Great location with several excellent restaurants and services within a couple minutes walk.
Cons: Koh Tao has no electricity grid, so these facilities have to use a generator for power. In this case you can hear the generator working and it gets a bit noisy on the main terrace.
6.0 Good
Cons: Very noisy door in room 302 lead to sleepless nights
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Really loved our stay at the dearly. The staff are super lovely and fun. The hostel is really lovely, super clean and has an absolutely amazing pool. The common room is also a really nice space to chill. The rooms are laid out well and all have a balcony. Breakfast available in the morning is simple but just wallaby’s needed. The hostel is super good at getting people together. They organise shuttle buses to the beach, have games nights and do BBQs on the regular. We were there for New Years and they have a BBQ and a party. Was lovely. The staff were really helpful with booking our onwards travel to Malaysia and gave us info on the best place close by to rent a bike.
Cons: The beds don’t have curtains.. this would be better for some privacy.

Pros: My second time here! Everything always great and 10 10 10!!!! Honestly says, "This is the best hostel of all time".

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast excellent, the staff very friendly, choice of food plentiful, the apartments-houses very nice in style on separate parcels with plenty of space outside and inside and very clean. Highly recommended.
Cons: choice of fruit can be more wide
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice place in the middle of nature but still not far from the city centre. Clean place with nice staff, pool and direct private beach access.
Cons: Beach is very near to the pier. Anyway a good beach.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is close to the pier but far enough to be private and quiet. Scenery is amazing
Cons: Maybe update from padlock to door locks for the bungalows
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Good breakfast! Very confy Room. Friendly staff.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Contact with nature! Bungalow is located in the middle of the forest.
Cons: They could provide a water filter that you can fill your bottle with water instead of giving you plastic bottles every day.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing location, great attention to detail, tea and cake served in the afternoon, they clean the room in early afternoon and come back later to close curtains and mosquito net. Beautiful gardens around the bungalows, 2 level pool, great view from breakfast building
Cons: Masseuse were a bit too busy with their phones. Too many mosquitos at night but it s present in througout the island. I booked the tour to the nangyuan island 2 days in a row with a private cy and with the resort. While the resort boat was a wooden luxurious boat with loads of space to rest and the food was good as well, the staff did not give much information on the snorkeling locations or type of fish. There i preferred the private tour.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything is very well done. Will absolutely be back!
Cons: Shower was just cement looked like they didn’t finish construction. A more luxurious bathroom would have fitted with the rest of the feel of the resort.
4.8 Okay
Pros: Location
Cons: I often don’t write reviews, but this place really deserves one. My experience at this place was terrible, so terrible that I decided to just check out early and go to a different place. The first cabin I was assigned to had a terrible smell of sewers. After complaining I got moved to a bigger cabin only to find out that the air condition wasn’t working at all. Once again I make my way to the reception. They tell me the technician will come and fix. I go for a walk when I’m back they say they will “upgrade” me to deluxe cabin, meaning... same as cabin #1 with a slight view of the ocean. I spent the night here and the bed is as hard as sleeping on the floor (beds in cabin #1 and #2 were fine) After talking to the receptionist for the 3rd time now they say they will solve it. Solution: put 2 comforters in the bed. At this point I packed my bags and left. Location is great but not worth the hassle. Stay away!

Pros: Great room with wonderful lovely staff.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great Location. Clean rooms. Good service.
Cons: Check-out time 11am. Dark bathroom - needs better lighting.
7.0 Good
Cons: Towel rack was broken
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Comparing to one of the resorts on the island, this is far better- clean, cute, you can hear the ocean, close to the pier of you have to catch an early ferry, plus much cheaper!
Cons: The shower has weak pressure, the drainage is not ok, but other than that- perfect!
7.5 Good
Pros: Big room great AC and bed. Clean bathroom and room with plenty of storage spce.
Cons: Should have smart tv system monitor to stream content shows movies. TV reception poor.
7.0 Good
Pros: Is a good hotel overall, but not great.
Cons: The hotel is too close to the pier, so to get to a good beach spot you have to walk some distance. The pictures are a little bit old and hotel might need some maintenance on the outside.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We enjoyed our stay very much. Friendly and welcoming staff, impeccably clean and comfortable room, much better than an average 3 star hotel room, balcony from which you can see the ocean. Beautiful sunset from the beach that is right in front of the hotel. You could jump in the ocean right there, but there is an even nicer beach to go swimming closeby. The closeness to the Port came in handy when we were leaving very early in the morning. Needless to say about Koh Tao, there are tons of great diving and snorcheling spots around. Great international diving centers nearby the hotel.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It’s very close to the pier so if you are going to dive it’s perfect location (don’t need to pay extra for taxi). Very friendly and helpful staff. If you have night ferry you can leave your luggage in reception after checkout and enjoy last moments on Koh Tao. They also have showers to refresh before long trip. I really can strongly recommend
Cons: Breakfast is not included in a price but restaurant is attached to the hotel so it’s not a real problem
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was perfect, very clean and comfortable accommodation and helpful staff
Cons: Everything was perfect, no complaints.
5.4 Okay
Pros: room is okay with a terrace but nothing special, dirty bathroom, and noisy, completly overpriced!!
Cons: dirty bathroom, and noisy, completly overpriced!! for this price we stayed 100 m away in a 10 times better hotel
The Tarna Align Resort - Ko Tao - Building

8.8 Excellent (544 reviews)
S$ 124+
Overview Reviews
When you stay at The Tarna Align Resort in Koh Tao, you'll be in the mountains, a 2-minute drive from Sairee Beach and 8 minutes from Shark Bay. Featured amenities include a computer station, dry cleaning/laundry services, and multilingual staff. A ferry terminal shuttle is provided at no charge, and free self parking is available onsite.
7.9 Good
Pros: We had Room 202 The View from the room was a delight - we got the Room with the Private Pool (which you have to share with 2 other rooms - but the pool is big enough for everybody!!!) - the sunset while being in the pool was so beautiful... The Room was super clean... Breakfast was very good...
Cons: Problems with the included 20% Restaurant Voucher - staff declined it at check out - you can’t give out Vouchers and decline them when the guests are checking out ... sorry not acceptable !!! Don’t even bother eating in the Restaurant except for Breakfast (which was really good!!!) - there are plenty of (cheaper) restaurants nearby... Thank you for reading :)
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The resort offers free shuttles to Sairee, 4 times a day. However, I would recommend hiring a scooter nonetheless, as the shuttle doesn't go to Mae Haad. There's a good shop nearby called P'Namo. In stead of giving your passport, you can also use 7000 baht as a deposit. The resort and it's villas are very modern and clean. Staff speaks English and is helpful (although sometimes the staff in the bar was paying too much attention to whatever they were watching on their phones.) The restaurant serves a mix of Thai and western food and breakfast was plentiful.
Cons: Although you can ask the staf to drive you to your room/villa by golf cart, the resort can be challenging when your physical condition isn't very well or perhaps you have other reasons why stairs and you aren't getting along very well. Personally, I'm not someone asking for the golf cart every time, so it was quite the exercise to get to the villa. The toilet/shower is not equipt with some kind of blind for privacy, just transparent glass between you and any other guest in the villa. That might be a little bit awkward for some.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved staying here, was a truck to get up the massive hill however was located close enough to walk to the bars and restaurants
Cons: One thing I didn’t like was the breakfast was pretty basic. The porridge was rice and had meat in which I found v strange
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Truly beautiful place. We stayed in a Sew View Villa all the way at the very top of the resort. It was was of our best stays in Thailand yet. The villa had a modern design all around, private terrace with sunbeds overlooking the horizon where we enjoyed sunset views, espresso machine. Resort offers a golf cart to take you up to your villa if you are too lazy to walk. Breakfast was good, coffee was great. Staff are attentive, better English language skills would be great as it was hard to communicate at times.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Good location, approximately 10 mins walk to the main village. Free shuttle available a couple of times a day. Lovely, modern, spacious rooms. Good breakfast.
6.0 Good
Pros: The breakfast was just ok... nothing special.
Cons: the value for the money. The room backed up against a second block of rooms so you couldn't have the drapes in the room open at any time. Also upon arrive in the room, there was a very unpleasant odor coming from the bathroom drains. While fixed, a hotel which charges this amount should have fixed this before we checked in.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything about the hotel, staff are will to do anything for you, spacious rooms, unbelievable view of the sea. One of the best overall experiences I’ve ever had of a hotel.
Cons: I see a few people complain about the walk from the beach to the hotel but it’s literally a small walk up hill, must be very unfit to complain about the walk.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The resort was exceptional. Location was great and the staff was super helpful. I appreciated the extra assistance and support when our ferry reservations were cancelled due to poor weather. The staff was ready and willing to aid us in figuring out options for getting back to the city. The main pool was absolutely amazing. Loved the salt water feature.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were very friendly and there was a good selection of food available. The view from the pool was like looking out onto a Disney film backdrop!
Cons: It was very quiet, we were the only guests there. Maybe we went during low season.
7.0 Good
Pros: Breakfast à la carte and great view, and an infinity pool with a Chalok Baan Kao awsome view.
Cons: To reach the resort by feet is extremely uncomfortable because of the uphill road.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Clean towels daily
Cons: Shuttles could have been provided to the pier free of charge due to location
6.7 Good
Pros: Clean and tidy and the staff were pleasant
10.0 Excellent
Pros: the staff was super friendly and helpful, the day we left we went diving at 6.30 in the morning and wouldn't make it back before 12 so they made us sandwiches to take with us for breakfast and let us check out of the room at 13.00 so we could have a shower after diving and before we had to catch the boat! the view is just simply amazing and definately something you should experience yourself!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The view is amazing! The breakfast (included in the room) is good but could be improved a bit. Staff was helpful and cordial at all times. The location is nice (you need a scooter though! it's very very steep to reach, as most places in Koh Tao).
Cons: Even though the view is amazing and the location is nice, we were not expecting such climbing to get to the room. The terrain is very steep and if you are going to stay here please rent a scooter. To reach the room you also have a ton of stairs through a very pleasant tropical garden.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing view, breakfast, close to the snorkelling spot, spacious room!
Cons: Not frequent shuttle bus to the town, if you are not comfortable with stairs this property does not suit you. The Deluxe Suite Bungalow requires a seperate shower place from the Spa! It is so inconvenient to shower in spa!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff, excellent views of the ocean, diving and scuba access right at the resort, included breakfast. The couch in the room had a pull out so you can fit more people. There are free transfers to and from the pier at select times.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The property is stunning. The bungalow had the most beautiful views to wake up to. Very clean. Staff was fantastic and all incredibly nice.
Cons: 1) the restaurant was okay. Just okay. Nothing spectacular. I had a whole fish that was steamed but had zero flavor. Was pretty disappointing. The breakfast was really good though. 2) there needs to be more shuttles to town especially in the afternoon. There’s one at 1 and then not again until 6. The cost of a taxi to the pier is 500 baht and to town is 600 baht, by far the most expensive taxis on my entire trip.
7.0 Good
Pros: Resort is built on the slopes with all villas facing neighbouring Haad Tien beach covered in green lush trees. The view from our bungalow was just stunning.
Cons: Our bungalow was located on the top side not far from the restaurant and apparently that strong smell was coming from the toilets just right next to it. Sometimes forcing us back inside from the terrace. Another little thing to keep in mind is the property location is quite challenging to get around. Since it's built on the top of the hills the driveway is very steep and in poor condition that requires confident motorbike driving skills, however resort provides with free shuttles.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful decor, amazing room, fabulous views, Thai/ Burmese staff were awesome as always, impeccably clean, nice breakfast choice.
Cons: We spent my wife’s birthday here a few years ago and the young English concierge was fantastic, very attentive and made a real fuss and effort. No so from the young french gentleman this time, needs to smile more along with the young lad who runs the restaurant. We were looking for the same experience as last time but unfortunately did not receive it. Goes to show your only as good as the people who work for you
6.0 Good
Pros: Pool was great , views incredible, property was beautiful
Cons: Listing said beachfront and there was no beach! Also was very isolated and hard to get to town. Property itself was hard to navigate - very spread out and lots of stairs.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Basicly everything, amazing place with great service. Me and my wife had the best time there
Cons: Too many stairs
7.0 Good
Pros: Nice views from the room Quiet
Cons: Resort is out of town, so you basically depend on the few free shuttles they provide Food in restaurant is ok, but in town you get much better food for less money There are a lot of stairs to walk every day
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Unbelievable resort, perfect if you are just want to relax. We only had two nights so didn't walk around the resort so don't know what is near by. Room was incredible, we had a room overlooking the ocean and view on a morning waking up was priceless. Food and drink at the resort is faultless and we had no complaints. Can't rate this place enough, will definitely come back.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was delicious and reasonably priced. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful and they rent motorbikes for a good price. Hotel is slightly out of town but only a 15 minute walk to the beach and main shops. This means it is a nice quiet place to relax at any point during the day, either by the pool or in the cafe area. Overall a really nice hotel with wonderful staff and would definitely stay again!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: brilliant hotel but 600m from the main action and probably a little too far to walk. All very clean and extremelt well kept. Lovely pool decks

9.7 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location, very friendly staff, nice beach, tasty dinners, superb spacy villa
Cons: I would suggest more breakfast variations and refill after 10 am
9.6 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in the beach side villa. Lots of room and the bathroom was unbelievable!

So helpful and friendly. Loved it and defo would return.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great staff , perfect location. The pool is fantastic. Everything was great .. only thing I think should be improved are very small things .. sometimes no hot water. Food is ok nothing to write home about. Annoying noise from the beach bars .. otherwise this place was perfect!
Cons: Noise from beach. Food average
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The unique atmosphere and facility design was fantastic. The service was awesome. Also the breakfast at the seaside was very special!
9.4 Excellent
Pros: Cottage 260 degrees was absolutely fantastic! It was just my husband and I. Huge, 2 bedroom w separate bath/shower. Living room and dinning area w not fully equipped kitchen( no fridge or stowe). Each room have it’s own fridge. The best part is the big outdoor pool and deck w shower and sun beds. Big terrace and the view is to die for! Very quiet and close to the snorkel platform where we did a lot of long swims from. The location us perfect for us, walking distance but not too far. Oh, and the bathroom in the master bedroom is huge!!
Cons: Not enough shade on the terrace.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Food:lovely breakfasts and dinners And amazing staff very friendly.
Cons: Crab in our tree house in the middle of the night .it scared my daughter a loads.
7.9 Good
Pros: Gorgeous rooms with beautiful views. Expensive but delicious room service.
Cons: There was an issue with the rented snorkel fins. They claimed we didn't return them when we definitely did..pretty sure they just charged us a ridiculous amount for rental to cover the cost of the 'missing' pair. It was a frustrating morning. All records kept on paper so things get lost easily

Cons: bed was quite hard
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The room was nice and clean, it had everything you need for a good price. The staff were really friendly and helpful and they even had a selection of snorkels and masks for guests to borrow. The location was fantastic, close to lots of great restaurants and to the beach, right in the middle of everything but was still nice and quiet at night.

Pros: Excellent location, large room & helpful staff
Cons: Mattress a little hard for my preference & only one pillow - would have preferred 2 but again, personal preference
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location in the heart of Sairee beach. The room was very big with a balcony. The bed was very comfortable. Air con was very good. There was a handy fridge and good size TV. Very pleased with our stay. The staff were great. There are even some snorkelling gear available to use for free which have been previously left by hotel guests. I would recommend to hire a scooter from Oli’s motorcycles. Good honest people at a reasonable price - 250bht per day for a 125cc moped. I highly recommend Grumpy’s leisure complex for a Sunday roast. We had Christmas dinner at the complex which also included access to the crazy golf course (18 holes), foot-pool, pool tables and cinema.
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: - very clean - spacious room - lovely lady who let us check out really late as we had an overnight boat - good value for money - good aircon plus fan as well

3.0 Mediocre
Pros: The views were great pool was ok lights didn't work at night. Staff were good...
Cons: Very tired around the edges kitchen area was very run down plates cutlery worn out front door has open windows so bugs can get in came back to find the place had been invaded by something that poos everywhere even on the bed our clothes we checked out one day early spoilt our stay totally.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: view, staff, perfectly clean
Cons: a bit overpriced, for the same price you can get beachfront bungalows . staff were amazing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The pool!!! 2 rooms 2 bathrooms- perfect with kids!!! The view!!!! Far from the noise but close enough to enjoy the restaurants around..
Cons: There weren't nets on the windows so we couldn't open them because of the mosquitos.... Breakfast was ok not more... Climbing all the way up- not easy but good for your butt. The taxi in and out is very expensive- better to rent motorbikes...
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Staff were very accommodating and extremely friendly! The villas were beautiful and clean, the view amazing. We were sad we only booked this for two nights! Check in and out were easy.
Cons: There was no restaurant on site so you have to be prepared to walk into Sairee (about 10 mins) or order in. Not a huge deal!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The bed was extremely comfortable, the host (Kit) was an absolute delight and the private pool was a dream.
5.8 Okay
Pros: The view
Cons: The snake in our original villa..., We were “ upgraded” to another villa since I refused to share our room with a snake. The second villa was a bit bigger and the privet pool was much better, however, we had to climb 78 stairs so we found ourself calculating our activities accordingly. To be fair, since we booked 2 villas, our family members that stayed in the other villa, have better opinion about the place. In addition, the location of the hotel is far away from all the local activities.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Anankhira Villas breakfast is lovely. You have a small selection to choose from all comes with choice of tea or coffee and fruit juice. Every morning we were the only two at breakfast plus the furry friends. The location is just picture perfect! the trip was to celebrate my 30th and finding balloons in the villa made it extra special. The location is a little daunting but both me and my partner managed just fine, renting a motorbike from next door we used this to get about the island.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I can't rate Anankhira Villas highly enough. I stayed with a friend and was blown away by how kind, attentive and wonderful the staff were. We didn't have a room with a pool as they were all booked out, nonetheless, our room was beautiful and impressively, cleaned every single day, even late in the afternoon. We had a beautiful view of the sea from our balcony and Kit the owner/manager was extremely generous and a wonderful host. Every thing we needed they accommodated, even dropping me off down to my next guest house later in my trip. Thank you to Kit and the team for a fantastic stay.
Cons: Only one small suggestion I'd make is it would be nice if breakfast finished just a little later than 9.30. I'm not a morning person and when on holiday like to really relax and sleep in, so by 10 or 10.30 would be perfect! But this is a minor detail. Really loved my stay and they made an effort for my vegan breakfast too, so really appreciate that and great fruit salad and view from the breakfast area.

Pros: This hotel was quite (some of the other hotels had loud bars at night). The air-conditioning was excellent and the room was huge with great views and styled nicely. It was cleaned really well every day.

Pros: Great location, spacy and comfortable rooms. Rooms were very spacious and looked as presented on photos. No meals are included but the resort has a restaurant which serves good kitchen. You can enjoy the beach in front, which is not private but in the beggining of January was almost empty. Further bars and hotels are getting louder and more crowded, I wouldn't enjoy it that much.
Cons: Cleaning and towels change was done every day, which was unecessary and bothered us for ecological reasons.

Cons: 1- communication The stuff didn’t speak English very well, And they are unavailable all the time, so be aware (the receptionist was there from 9am until 11pm) but even during that time u have to wait for them to come to u since they are not on the main desk all the time. 2- they don’t explain what they have as facilities even if you ask them they will tell you is what you see ( so you have to be precise with your questions. 3- they have beach’s deck chairs (limited numbers) for costumers (which is nice) but unfortunately a lot of tourists not from the hotel will come and use them so the hotel’s customers will end up setting on the sand or just waiting for one to be empty. Also they don’t offer late check out. Overall the hotel location, restaurant, WiFi and design is really nice, but I think they need to improve their communication skills, and the facilities for costumers
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Comfy bed, clean room with large fridge and tea making facilities. Nice view and great restaurant on the beach.
Cons: The beach area needs sunbeds for guests at the resort

9.2 Excellent
Pros: -Beautiful view very nice owners who will do everything to make your stay comfortable Spacious and clean
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The apartment was gorgeous, comfortable, and clean, with a beautiful terrace and an ocean view. The hosts were very friendly and met us at the pier; since the property is located a bit out of the way, up a steep hill, they provided a free shuttle down and up again once a day, which was very convenient (we mostly liked the walk, but it was good to have the option!). Great to see recycling being done, and really loved that the hosts filled up three large jugs of filter water in the apartment every day - wonderful for us as we carry refillable bottles everywhere. We absolutely loved our stay there with Alan and Heidi, and would 100% stay there again.
Cons: Breakfast was a bit of a disappointment - at a gorgeous place like this we assumed it would be some sort of home-cooked tray with a nice hot pot of tea/coffee and proper crockery, but instead the breakfast is a take-out delivery from a Greasy Spoon in town, with the accompanying multitude of little plastic bags and plastic containers and coffee cups for every part of the meal. The food itself was fine.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything was wonderful! The place was very clean, the view was amazing and the fridge was always stocked. Alan and Heidi are very personable and make wonderful hosts. We would definitely stay here again.

Cons: Nothing.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff was incredibly nice, helpful and genuine. The Bungalow and the whole site seems cared for and in good shape. The beach is photogenic and you can swim to the rocky edge of the bay to see live corals and plenty of colorful fishes. The Tropicana Restaurant offers excellent breakfast and food. But if you are looking for alternatives you will find plenty of restaurants down the road you can choose from.
Cons: There seems to be no issue with this Resort. You will encounter very friendly mid-sized dogs around the beaches of Koh Tao. As a cat-person I don't enjoy the company of dogs so much however friendly they may be.

2.5 Mediocre
Cons: intead of sea view room we got room which is located 2 meters from pool... man at reception told that we can cancel reservation but he would charge as for 1 night. he has no idea what was on booking sold. the bungalow is also 1 meter from main road. so u can hear all motorbikes. last thing: stuff loves to play softball. u will hear it. for sure will wake u up, even if u do not want this...
4.0 Okay
Pros: Location and great sea view
Cons: Bugs in the room Stiff bed and pillow Low stream in the shower The stuff took off the pillows from the sun beds at night
5.0 Okay
Pros: View from balcony, snorkelling off the beach.
Cons: The exterior and gardens are lovely. The rooms are very basic, no nice touches at all. One up from a hostel inside. Staff surly. No deposit box, doors barely lock, our room was 10ft from the road, room 10. Location is good. That's all I can say about it. Disappointed.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great staff, very friendly owner, kept giving us refreshments and fruit.
Cons: Balcony doors hard to open
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: Sea view but restricted by roof tops an trees in front. The balconies of Neighbouring properties are also right next to you.
Cons: Toilet is below the shower so that it is not possible to shower without getting it wet. Need to duck your head in order to enter it. The front door is locked with a padlock but cannot be closed unless jammed with a spoon. Yet there is still a gaping hole for insects to enter. Limited sun beds around the pool. Staff are not friendly. The vacant block across the road is covered in rubbish. Would not rate this a three star property.
4.2 Okay
Pros: Nice location.
Cons: The hotel has no facilities, no restaurant and no services. The swimming pool is ok, but not clean as well as the sun-beds. The bungalow has not mosquito net and this was a big issue. Bathroom full of mould, and not sparkly clean. Bungalow near the street was very noisy. Incredibly overpriced and not value for money. Ko Tao can offer a much better solutions at the same (and lower) price.
3.3 Mediocre
Pros: The location was good and the view was beautiful but I would not recommend this place.
Cons: There was a raw sewage smell under our deck, the bathroom smelled like urine and there were ants everywhere! On the walls, floors and bed!

Pros: Clean and tidy and the staff were pleasant
10.0 Excellent
Pros: the staff was super friendly and helpful, the day we left we went diving at 6.30 in the morning and wouldn't make it back before 12 so they made us sandwiches to take with us for breakfast and let us check out of the room at 13.00 so we could have a shower after diving and before we had to catch the boat! the view is just simply amazing and definately something you should experience yourself!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The view is amazing! The breakfast (included in the room) is good but could be improved a bit. Staff was helpful and cordial at all times. The location is nice (you need a scooter though! it's very very steep to reach, as most places in Koh Tao).
Cons: Even though the view is amazing and the location is nice, we were not expecting such climbing to get to the room. The terrain is very steep and if you are going to stay here please rent a scooter. To reach the room you also have a ton of stairs through a very pleasant tropical garden.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Overall fantastic facilities with great atmosphere and extremely nice staff. Hostel organised events were a major plus. Great location with several excellent restaurants and services within a couple minutes walk.
Cons: Koh Tao has no electricity grid, so these facilities have to use a generator for power. In this case you can hear the generator working and it gets a bit noisy on the main terrace.

We were there for New Years and they have a BBQ and a party. Was lovely. The staff were really helpful with booking our onwards travel to Malaysia and gave us info on the best place close by to rent a bike.

Pros: Amazing view, breakfast, close to the snorkelling spot, spacious room!
Cons: Not frequent shuttle bus to the town, if you are not comfortable with stairs this property does not suit you. The Deluxe Suite Bungalow requires a seperate shower place from the Spa! It is so inconvenient to shower in spa!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very friendly staff, excellent views of the ocean, diving and scuba access right at the resort, included breakfast. The couch in the room had a pull out so you can fit more people. There are free transfers to and from the pier at select times.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The property is stunning. The bungalow had the most beautiful views to wake up to. Very clean. Staff was fantastic and all incredibly nice.
Cons: 1) the restaurant was okay. Just okay. Nothing spectacular. I had a whole fish that was steamed but had zero flavor. Was pretty disappointing. The breakfast was really good though. 2) there needs to be more shuttles to town especially in the afternoon. There’s one at 1 and then not again until 6. The cost of a taxi to the pier is 500 baht and to town is 600 baht, by far the most expensive taxis on my entire trip.
7.0 Good
Pros: Resort is built on the slopes with all villas facing neighbouring Haad Tien beach covered in green lush trees. The view from our bungalow was just stunning.
Cons: Our bungalow was located on the top side not far from the restaurant and apparently that strong smell was coming from the toilets just right next to it. Sometimes forcing us back inside from the terrace. Another little thing to keep in mind is the property location is quite challenging to get around. Since it's built on the top of the hills the driveway is very steep and in poor condition that requires confident motorbike driving skills, however resort provides with free shuttles.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful decor, amazing room, fabulous views, Thai/ Burmese staff were awesome as always, impeccably clean, nice breakfast choice.
Cons: We spent my wife’s birthday here a few years ago and the young English concierge was fantastic, very attentive and made a real fuss and effort. No so from the young french gentleman this time, needs to smile more along with the young lad who runs the restaurant. We were looking for the same experience as last time but unfortunately did not receive it. Goes to show your only as good as the people who work for you
6.0 Good
Pros: Pool was great , views incredible, property was beautiful
Cons: Listing said beachfront and there was no beach! Also was very isolated and hard to get to town. Property itself was hard to navigate - very spread out and lots of stairs.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Basicly everything, amazing place with great service. Me and my wife had the best time there
Cons: Too many stairs
7.0 Good
Pros: Nice views from the room Quiet
Cons: Resort is out of town, so you basically depend on the few free shuttles they provide Food in restaurant is ok, but in town you get much better food for less money There are a lot of stairs to walk every day
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Unbelievable resort, perfect if you are just want to relax. We only had two nights so didn't walk around the resort so don't know what is near by. Room was incredible, we had a room overlooking the ocean and view on a morning waking up was priceless. Food and drink at the resort is faultless and we had no complaints. Can't rate this place enough, will definitely come back.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: The hostel staff were very friendly and accommodated last minute changes. The bathrooms were very sizeable and clean and had organic shampoo and shower gel for guests to use. The hostel had a nice balcony with hammocks and bean bags to chill after a busy day. The rooms had big lockers and provided towels. The aesthetic of the hostel was very eco-friendly and felt like a modern treehouse. The food was amazing! Freshly made and delicious
Cons: The hostel is situated about 20mins walk from the pier or 30-40mins walk from Sairee Beach. Unless you have rented a bike or are willing to pay THB 300 for a taxi, walking is your best bet. Our beds were on the third bunk, making it hard to climb up late at night after a few alcoholic beverages. Other than that, the place was perfect.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything, the staff were incredibly nice, the most amazing welcome, checking in was super straight forward (can be some hostels downfall.) Overall a great place to stay, not to far from the main part of Koh tao but just far enough to not be swamped into everything. Perfect location if you are interested in a morning walk to see sunrise! down the road from one of the best eateries on the whole island! Also a huge plus side is that this hostel despite being vegan it's not shoved down your throat, perfect getaway to relax, get a little bit healthier and soak up the best the island has to offer.
Cons: I couldn't stay longer!

Pros: Comfy bed. Friendly staff with big smiles (Nim & Lek). Nice walk to the south beaches and bays. Decent showers. Close to Tutka restaurant (very nice food, large) Supermarket next door.
Cons: No basic kitchen area to use (microwave, hot water, fridge) although the owner was very kind and accommodating after we had a chat regarding this. The little dogs are fun, but using the upstairs chillout area every morning as a toilet is pretty disgusting. Air-con rattles quite loudly.
