10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything, absolutely beautiful. Excellent food and staff that go above and beyond. Wonderful stay.
Cons: Nothing, everything was perfect.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This resort is designed so that you never have to leave. There’s nothing bad about this place, everything is amazing. Out of 4 places we stayed in Thailand (all similar ratings) this was number 1. The private beach is the best on the island. We hired snorkels for £5, swam out 50m and saw a sea turtle. No need to pay £40 for a tourist trip if you’re staying here. Food selection is brilliant, and the quality of food is honestly better than most places in Europe!! Wishing we booked it for longer than 3 nights!
Cons: No hand towels in the rooms.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing beach, amazing place - staying at the cabins is a must, and a whole different experience. I do not recommend the apartments. Actually the Resort should bring down those apartments, which its only reason is business profitability, and just have the small cabins around the beach, which are basic and small but cosy. Trust me when I say that price difference between one and the other option is irrelevant in comparison to what you receive in return. Small advise, rent a motorbike for the day and drive across the island's beaches. The people working at the resort are incredible - all of them, specially the funny woman at the beach bar.
Cons: Even though beaches are incredible, sometimes it appears to be that currents bring back some plastics and garbage - I understand these islands have a whole system of garbage treatment o protect the island, but it appears to be something is not working. In any case, it would be a smart decision to place some resources to clean beaches on a daily basis. Not a good breakfast, still acceptable. Prices at restaurants, as always in Thailand's beach resorts, are quite expensive but nothing unaffordable.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The staff was nice and thoughtful. Its one of the best and most beautiful resorts we have been to thus far. They have multiple swimming pools with a stunning view. The private beach is stunning and located at shark bay where we have seen a turtle and plenty of fish. The breakfast is very nice with many options. When we left around 6 am, we thought we would have nothing to eat during traveling, they surprisingly made a breakfast package for us. So thoughtful! We would like to thank the staff for this amazing experience.
Cons: There is no elevator, this might be difficult for people with disabilities.
7.0 Good
Pros: Good facilities on the beach and hotel area. The beach is beautiful, but not so suitable for swimming because of all dead corals. And it is not that good snorkelling as they say (yes you can se sharks and turtles there but water is not clear and it is difficult to reach deep water (you need to go 200 m from the beach). I could recommend to stay here for the day, but in my opinion it is better in the bay nearby - Sai Daeng Beach. It’s a good beach to swim and on the other side (just 5 min to go) you have Hin Ngam bay with good corals and a lot of fish. Nice staff, especially the girl at reception. Very helpful.
Cons: Rooms are a bit too old. Definitely they look better on the pictures. We changed our room to higher standard because the first one wasn’t good at all in my opinion. And I never seen such a terrible textile - towels was so old that they were grey and not white and loose threads. Unacceptable for 4 stars hotel. The same is for breakfast: very poor and bad quality for 4 stars hotel, terrible porcelain. No freshpressed juices, no coffee from coffee machine. Usually it’s a great breakfast at Thai hotels, but not in this one. A bit to pricey restaurant. Staff is too uptight, I guess it’s a management fault. Staff just say standard phrases and not solution oriented.
7.5 Good
Pros: hotel have big potencial but... nice beach beautiful landscape,palms, pools good breakfast dinner tasty staf is nice balcony was nice with view and sofa to relax
Cons: Totally overpriced!! they take advantage bcs there is nothing around the hotel... shower towels are not white but GRAY and very old !!! felt bad to use it better to clean floor with it than to dry your body!! Worst thing for us was A/C in room, controls didnt work and whole night blowing direct to the bed, just horrible... toilet smell like sewage!
6.0 Good
Pros: Beautiful environment / location / facilities. Some of the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Cons: Room was not as advertised on picture, view was blocked entirely by trees. Poor cleaning standards, hair from previous guest in bathroom, common areas like corridor floor are dirty. Water doesn't drain properly, bad sewer smell on stairway. Shower head didn't stay upright, water in shower is salty. No towels in the room on the third day, called reception for 30 minutes but no answer. Rest of the buttons of the phone are not working, including emergency call button. No lift so you have to walk up 3 floors. Very hard mattress and uncomfortable pillows, didn't sleep well for any of the three nights. Many of the things mentioned in the in-room hotel guide are not available, for example beach towels at the pool, check out is 11am instead of 12am as written, late check-out until 1:30pm costs 30% instead of free of charge unil 2pm as written, no hand towels or face towels, etc. Most of the staff looks stressed and uneducated. Shuttle to the town is available but the 6pm shuttle was fully booked even though it was low season. Regular taxi can be booked but is somehow charged on a 'per person' basis. Unfriendly receptionist who ignored us at check-out and instead started helping Thai people. Overall a badly managed place.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was good, they prepare eggs of your choice. The insea restaurant and the beach bar were really good, we didn’t even eat in the city. Swimmingpool and the surrounding palms trees were beathtaking. The shuttle service to the city and the lobby at the pier is great.
Cons: -
6.0 Good
Pros: Apart from the written above, It's a beautiful piece of nature.
Cons: There were some fundamental aspects that made our stay in the resort less wonderful and even a bit destroying to our vacation. First, the hotel shows the price for everything he offers without the tax 7% and the service 10%. it was written in small letters on every menu and brochure it felt like a little bit of a stilling by the psichologic effect that the "lower" numbers have. The service part really pised me off, because in one part it made everything much more expansive but on the other it felt like the staff didn't really get the money that we were putting for service. I don't know what the hotels system for rewarding his employes but it broke my heart every time seeing their faces when asking if service is included, which was excellent, and made me pay double eventually. In addition, there were a issue with getting into or out of the hotel, because of the beautiful location it is difficult to get to the hotel and almost impossible by foot. Less a problem if you have a bike but more of a problem if not. The hotel has an extremly minimall shuttle service and to call a cub to the hotel costs extra. Seems like it was suitable for the hotel because in this conditions many guests would stay in the hotel and spend their money indoors except on much cheapest restaurants (and much better) or scuba company's on the island. Eventualy, it felt like the hotel tried to make money on our back and to save money as much as possible (not to give us extra toothpaste after the first day and so.. it was the small things) it worsened the experience very much. I don't see myself coming back to this resort in this conditions and its a shame becuse the atmosphere and location was terrific.
6.5 Good
Pros: Great locations although beware of that dodgy road on Scooters...
Cons: Having checked all reviews I was looking to stay at the beach resort NOT the club. My receipts and conformations stated beach resort and I was told on arrival I actually booked resort. Staff were most unsympathetic and I was offered a bottle of wine and a letter to sign to confirm that I would not complain on reviews...clearly I declined a crappy bottle of chardonnay as a 'compromise agreement' and instead wrote this. Please check you know what you're getting. The management blamed their agents but that is not the customers problem, they need to better manage through brand. Poor show. FYI, nothing wrong with beach club, it just wasn't what I thought I bought and had reviewed. If this happened in any other business you'd get a refund / transfer.
7.9 Good
Pros: Private beach Pool Nice restaurant Luxurious villas Friendly and helpful staff
Cons: Isolated from main island Villa was at the top of a hill Expensive food compared to island A few dogs randomly roaming the resort
7.0 Good
Pros: Excellent location - best beach on the island. The staff were very good and attentive. The In Sea restaurant had rather limited menu but food was consistent and decent. We had the Castaway rooms which were very comfortable and charming. The spa was very basic but Thai massages were excellent.
Cons:

7.9 Good
Pros: Breakfast was great. Don’t remember his name little man who takes your luggage and takes you around on the buggy. He makes the hotel great. Hotel could be lovely if people would have a drink or dinner in the hotel roof top bar. It’s just so cheap to eat out so I do get that.
Cons: We paid for a pool access room. When we arrived the only one they had available was a twin room not god when your on holiday with your partner! So they very nicely said we can give you the honeymoon suite. Has no pool access which wasn’t happy with. Then out of 3 nights we had no hot water on the first night then again 1sr morning then again 2nd night. They said sorry gave us a complimentary meal which we were happy about. We went for it and we was then told we could only have Thai food nothing else on the menu. Was still nice though just we was the only two in the restaurant. Didn’t see anyone eat there 3 of the nights. Shame as the hotel bar is fantastic if it had people there. Location it’s on a 15/20 min walk up a long hill from the bars/ restaurant to hotel then long walk up to reception then to your room! Koh Tao is the best Island thought amazing amazing place.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Good location breakfast was excellent room clean and aire good relaxing atmosphere with excellent service we will be back !!
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Good, ambient location close to beach Cool design of enterior Super-nice staff, always smiling and doing all efforts for guests Great breakfast with fresh fruits and smoothies Room was silent and well maintained by staff Bed was very comfortable Dive school on site
Cons: Yes, the “no walls around the toilet” is a trues story, which is very weird, but there is secondary toilet around pool area, which you can always use with more privacy :) Air con has mould inside and is pushing smelly air in the room, which should be cleaned
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: The view from our room. Nice big room, nice big balcony.
Cons: Due to close down of all activities in DK, we wanted to get back to Samui two days before our booking ended. No understanding from the hotel, no help with booking of tickets to the ferry. For the two days we stayed there, there was "birds shit" on the coffee table on the balcony...
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was superb! It was the best breakfast we had during our 3 week stay in Thailand! The bed was so comfortable that we truly miss it! The view was very nice and the hotel area invited to spent some relaxing days. There was a shuttle going down to the center several times a day and even if you would need one out of these times it was only 50 THB per day We didn’t want to rent a scooter but the hotel offered us the possibility to go to the freedom beach for 350 THB per way, which was a fair price.
Cons: The restaurant really didn’t have a good cost/ value ratio
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Location was perfect, just outside of town. Close enough to everything you need but still in a quiet area. Staff were extremely friendly. Breakfast and facilitates of the hotel were just great. Buggy up and down to our room was very handy. Loved our stay, would definitely love to return
Cons: A lot of mosquitoes in the area, some insect repellent on the balcony would have been ideal so we could of enjoyed this part of our room a bit more on the evening
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 room was beautiful and the pool connected to the room was just incredible!! I had so much fun staying here! I watched the gorgeous sunset while lying in the pool, which was really special. I also really really liked the hotel's diving center- It was so much more intimate and relaxed then the large schools in town. It was a much better vibe for me The staff at the hotel was so helpful and friendly, great cocktails!
Cons: The resort would be even more amazing if they had a spa! I would also recommend an online/internet based way (whatsapp?) to request a shuttle back from town- my phone had internet but no option to call.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This property is one of the best i have stayed in, great staff nothing a problem, pure luxury
Cons: The ramp up to the reception could be a problem in the wet season

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location overlooks shark bay. Stunning sunrises and sunsets. The grounds are immaculate and the staff is friendly. The room is large and quiet.
Cons: Starting to feel a little outdated in the bathrooms. Still a lovely place after 10 years
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had an amazing View of the water & the sunset from the room balcony. The resort is located on top of the hill, bit out of the way so its perfect if you want to disconnect and honestly there is plenty to do in the resort so you don't feel like you want to go anywhere anyways. The layout is so perfect in the resort, all rooms are far from each other so plenty of privacy. There is also a boat service to the beach (about 3-4 mins) you tell them to pick you up at a certain time. You can rent snorkeling gear at the bottom of the resort and you can dive right in as they have created a nice stepping area to get right into it. The location for snorkeling is the best as boats come around that area and people jump in. The restaurant on the resort is very nice but we preferred the in room service. We got a Pizza & Burgers and they were both super Yum. The Pool area is lots of fun too. Plenty of sun-beds and it the deep-end is actually 2.2M. Overall a 10/10 for us.
Cons: Nothing :) If I was being super critical The amount of steps. But then again to get what they have achieved, this is the only way to get what they got so can't really complain about. wouldn't recommend it for someone with a disability.
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.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The breakfast was fantastic and the location out of this world, absolutely stunning views
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely lovely property. Breathtaking views. Comfortable rooms I never slept better in my life than at this property, Safe , quiet and only ocean u can hear Reception staff helpful. Yes many stairs but there is no condition for escalator. Helps to keep in shape. U must rent bike to enjoy it fully.
Cons: Need to pay for renting snorkeling equipment. & No free kayak ( other beardby hotels offer so ) Would like stuff especially in breakfast smile and be more nice, they are not rude whatsoever but some friendly notes form them would make experience better.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Gorgeous place! Stunning view. The room was private and beautiful and comfortable. It is quite remote so you will have to rent a motorbike as taxies to the city are really expensive. Bear in mind there is no beach - there is a beautiful beach quite close but costs 100BHT per person. We paid and really enjoyed. The pool is lovely and the food in the restaurant is really good.
Cons: The ‘spa’ was awful and a big disappointment. Don’t bother at all. The place is very simple and not pampering at all. The therapist didn’t speak any English and when trying to explain to her a certain pain that I had she didn’t try to understand or pay attention to the area. She was super young and not experienced- the massage was the worse one I got while in Thailand and I felt it was a big waste of money and time. I was rushed out not even offered a tea or relax a moment at the end as you’d expect from a ‘spa’ in a 5 star hotel. Don’t bother. Having said that - Everything else was great.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It was a lovely place to stay in the mountains, the view was beautiful although it’s not the easiest to travel around freely however they have organised shuttle and boat times for guest convenience which you book at reception. The pool is lovely, they replace towels regularly. The bed is very comfortable, air conditioning is great and much needed! Overall a lovely luxurious treat for a couple of days.
Cons: Most places across Thailand and the islands are prices including VAT & tax and you choose whether you want to add service. This place is plus 10% service & 7% tax so just be aware, it’s already priced than most places but the extra 17% adds up! ALSO LOTS OF STAIRS. Not good for disabled, room 1 was at the bottom and it was a hot trek up!!!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful views from everywhere. Beautiful suite but no shower only a bathtub with a handheld shower head. Water all over the floor. Very strange. Beautiful grounds well cared for.
Cons: Jamahkiri is considered the nicest hotel on the island and the most expensive. Overpriced for what you get. We came from Bali and Vietnam where the hospitality was wonderful. Not the case here. Most of the staff seems so disinterested in their guests and job. The dining room is so beautiful but unfortunately the food was below standard including and especially breakfast. It is worth the price to pay an overpriced taxi to dine in town. We came to Koh Tao to dive to find that diving at Jamahkiri is double the cost of any other dive shop. Same water. Same fish. State of the art equipment. It was, however, lovely to come back at the end of the day to the hotel where it is quieter and more peaceful and pretty on this side of the island. Although it did not bother us it is important for any elderly or handicapped person to know that there are many many stairs to tackle. There is no other way. The photos on the website do reflect the beauty of the area and the hotel.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: one of the best hotels at this destination. great service and quality.
Cons: little bit of the hand if you plan to go to the downtown often. taxi ride is 10min and cost 500. motorbike is cheap but the road is not worth the risk if you don’t drive motorbike often.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Clean, Beautiful location, great facilities. Worth paying
Cons: It’s in the deep nature so it’s designed according to its surroundings which makes the bathroom look weird
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We had a ocean view villa. Big room and bathroom. The resort is set in the side of small mountain so the grounds were very interesting. Part of the villa was rock on the inside making it feel like being part of the natural surroundings. There is a free shuttle to the beach and pier several times a day. The sunset views from the resort and restaurant are amazing. Easy ten minute boat ride from the resort to Nangyuan Island but the resort didn't tell us anything about the water shoe policy on Nangyuan island. This is a must know kind of thing. If you have water shoes on, you have to leave them at the park entrance. This means you will have to be barefoot through the entire visit. We were unable to go up to the famous view point because our feet were burning on the walking decks and some of the sand is covered in hard coral making it difficult to walk on the beaches. Ware sandals or regular shoes and put your water shoes in your bag.
Cons: Some of the floor boards on the deck and bathroom need to be replaced. No place to hang clothes. Need better lighting in the bathroom. Time to replace the fans at the restaurant. This goes throughout Thailand, it's time to make smoking areas or non smoking altogether in the restaurants! We visited 4 islands and have had to deal with smoke in our face in just about every place we ate.

Pros: We had a romantic chalet with view of the bay and it was like a paradise location for us. Everything from pick up at pier to welcome at hotel was perfect. The staff were great, 5 room cleaners, free afternoon tea delivered and the pool guy was brilliant. We snorkelled everyday over the underwater shipwreck in front of the place which was one of the best spots on the island. Short walk to town across the beach but far enough away to be quiet. The swimming pools are gorgeous. We will stay there again.

Pros: The staff were excellent. Breakfast was good . Great facilities
Cons: There was nothing that we didn't like although we did have 2 days of heavy rain
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We returned after 2 years and it's still the best place you can be in Koh Tao. Jansom bay and Sai Thong beaches are easy walks on nice paths. Mae Haad pier area is also a 5 minutes walk with a 7/11. The noisier part of the island can be reached any time, if you want to by 20 minutes walk, taxi, or bike. The romantic sea view villas are the best deals, highly recommended.
Cons: Our favorite restaurant, the Whitening moved away from the neighborhood. :)
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.

Pros: Beautiful location and rooms
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!

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
1.0 Poor
Pros: There is no problem in the location and location of the facility. But the business is really bad. Breakfast is included as an open buffet but there is nothing in the buffet except for a kind of bread, 2 kinds of fruit, 2-3 pieces of jam. Coffee is 5th grade! They spray pesticides on the bed you sleep in your room. The day after I arrived, I had a serious inflammation in my eyes. I can not say that you will never stay at the facility, but if you make a mistake like asking for a bill from them, the receptionist will attack you. We had serious problems during C / out and they physically assaulted us and eventually we got rid of by calling the police. I am a tourism agency owner and my life is traveling. I stay in hotels all the time, but an attack came because I requested a bill on my own. Since the hotel did not pay our bill, we complained and will follow up on the necessary majors of Thailand. However, the receptionist has a serious anger problem, I can understand not to come up with a solution, but walking and threatening the customer is a crime.
Cons: People here are rude and frightening! In addition, the island collects all taxes but refuses to provide documents in return. When you make your payment, always request the document. Take precaution for this. If you have a problem, it is not possible to find a manager to contact. You have to deal with angry people working at the reception.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Very beautiful property and nice spacious room, bathroom, and patio (sala villa). The bathroom soap & shampoo have a really lovely fragrance. We really liked the place and would come back. The location is also great - you can walk along the beach to the main beaches and bars, but are still in a calmer setting.
Cons: You can tell it's not the newest property, but still, it is very well maintained. DVD player is a bit outdated;).
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. The partially outside bathroom is great, like having a shower in the jungle.
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Even when full I think this resort would feel uncrowded. Rustic but with 5 star touches. (welcome homemade biscuits on first day) free 15 minute massage. A variety of interesting and beautifully appointed cottages, treehouses, villas. Walking distance to the throng of Sairee beach but in the quietest location. Staff were lovely. Pool or beach, both wonderfully relaxing.
Cons: Cost of massage here, although I’m sure would have been nice, was hugely overpriced compared to everywhere else.

7.0 Good
Pros: Most staff very friendly and helpful-front desk was amazing Helpful when it came time to check out- offered to book my ferry, showed up at my door ready to help with luggage Great pool & pillows (and that's saying a lot as I have a bad neck) Nice location. Away from the action but only 10-15min walk along beach Comfy bed Buffet breakfast ok Beach out front clean, shallow water which is nice for just hanging out- pretty calm bay The grounds are quite beautiful - well kept Complimentary shuttle to and from ferry. He took my luggage and brought me right to the ticket counter- really appreciated it as it was a complete zoo.
Cons: Room service food not always good Staff not always attentive in restaurant My deodorant mysteriously went missing from my bathroom- it was new and I searched everywhere and never found it Came close to missing ferry as voucher was not given to me at checkout but they brought it to me very quickly Bathroom not totally clean Hit and miss with hot water. Light out on path for entire stay (I kept forgetting to mention it) could have been hazardous as there was a step there thsy you had to watch for. There wasnt really any kind if 'vibe' but that could be because it rained a lot of the time too.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Really good vibe and the styling was excellent. Very spacious and comfortable accommodation. Close enough to walk into the busier parts of Sairee but far enough away to get away from it also.
Cons: The dogs howling up and down the beach but only bothered sleep once out of 6 nights. See views slightly blocked by setup of the site.

Pros: The resort is lovely. We stayed in a Whitetop villa. Wow was something so unique and spacious. The restaurant was great had some of our best meals there, breakfast had great choice, the staff were so pleasant and helpful. The beach area was kept nice and clean would definitely return..hopefully with a different reception this would be perfect..
Cons: The only negative was the rude reception lady. As we were checking in she was really rude to another guest.
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.

7.0 Good
Pros: The views from this resort are incredible! The back of the property leads to an infinity swimming pool with steps down to a private beach. The sunrise was gorgeous in the morning. The beach itself is quiet and clean!
Cons: The resort is VERY remote. Only 4 scheduled taxi times to go into town and nothing within walking distance. I arrived late so the only option for me to eat was in the hotel restaurant which had significantly higher prices than anywhere in town. I knew it would be serene and remote, but I didn't realize that it would be so closed off from the rest of the island. Also a very expensive taxi ride from the pier.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location is super! Super breakfast. There is a beach right in front of the resort. Friendly staff and very helpful. Although Koh Tao is a bit pricey, the prices at the resort for food and drinks are not that overpriced. Nice big rooms.
Cons: The shower was a bit moldy and it smells like that. We didn’t asked about it, but it’s noticeable. There was no airco, there was a fan but this isn’t helping enough for a cooler night.

Pros: The staff is very helpful and the view from the bungalow is very nice

8.8 Excellent
Pros: Great place to stay. Staff is very kind and great location
8.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved many things about the hotel: - Beach front location. You have direct access to the beach at the same time that you are in the center of Sairee beach without having to deal with all the tourists on the streets. You can go to the beach to enjoy the sunset or to go to your favorite restaurant or bar by the seaside. The location is definitely a plus of this hotel. - We stayed in the garden view rooms and it was nice we had enough space, good AC, good mattress, we were not bothered by the noise of the parties in the beach. - The staff, the employees are very friendly and willing to help. - The breakfast was also nice, it was not the best but you have plenty of options.
Cons: The room needs some maintenance. It is the kind of new hotel that I guess has been running without putting much attention to maintenance specially in the bathroom. Some examples are blockage of the shower drain or the bathroom sink. I mean, its not that bad but knowing that you have to take some time to let the water drain while you are showering or brushing your teeth is annoying. That did not stop us from extending our days there.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beachfront location but only 5 mins walk to the centre of Sairee Stayed in the new building in Grand Superior rooms Free transport to and from the pier. 2 small pools were refreshing Loved the talking Mynah birds
Cons: Perhaps the bed was a little wide for the room (super long sized) and had to live out of our suitcases as there were no drawers, just one small hanging rail. We only stayed 3 nights so wasn’t really an issue, but would have been annoying for a longer stay.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was good , beach was really nice and our room was in the new building which had a nice little view of the beach
Cons: Having to sign in and out for a beach towel and bringing it back on the same day. Most resort leave beach towels in your room for you to use. Breakfast was average. Having to go up 3 floors with our luggage was a bit tough.
7.9 Good
Pros: Great location near bars and restaurants. Our room was very new. Very nice swimming pool where you can enjoy the best sunset! The staff was very friendly and the restaurant is good and pretty cheap.
Cons: The cleaning service is very bad, we asked to clean our rooms every day and they never cleaned the shower and sink. The breakfast I am very basic.
6.3 Good
Pros: Pool.
Cons: Flies in room. Screaming kids.
5.0 Okay
Cons: They only give you one beach towel per day and make you sign a form in reception, it’s very annoying. And everytime your phone locks, WiFi is disconnected so you have to reenter user and password that was also annoying

Pros: The location was perfect straight on the beach. Staff were friendly, booked ongoing travel for us and free transfer to pier. Clean well equipped room with everything you need. Brilliant pool, breakfast and bar.

Pros: We’re very happy we chose to stay here. It’s quieter that closer to the action which is more a party scene. But fantastic restaurants are within walking distance especially many awesome vegan places. Thai food is cheap and good here. This property has a good restaurant right here n the beach where you can also drop off your laundry and get beach towels. When we arrived we were served fresh lemonade and right after we got to our bungalow a plate of fresh fruit was delivered. Jus be sure to eat it quickly before the tiny ants join you. We hope to bring more family next time. It’s perfect!
Cons: I liked everything so far. Gracious helpful staff took care of everything we needed.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was surprisingly good. Bungalows supercosy. Area is always calm and peacefull.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is great, still in the main beach but far from the noise. Walked everyday to the cafes and restaurants. Room had a nice view, and was sparkling clean.
Cons: The restaurant was disappointing. Had a coffee and it was powdered coffee, had chips another day and they were the ones you get frozen. It's ok for beers at the beach though. And there are so many cafes and restaurants around that it doesn't matter
7.0 Good
Pros: Very pretty bungalow and a nice breakfast selection. The beach is very shallow and beautiful. Perfect to sit in the water and relax.
Cons: There were worms coming out of the shower drain. Too many large spiders in the rooms overall. Restaurant is too expensive. Internet only worked 1/10 of the time.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The lady on the front desk was friendly and helpful. I was very grateful that she scanned some visa paperwork to my email for me. Also when we had noisy neighbours we were given the option to move straight away. It is handy having a kettle and coffee sachets in the room. We stayed in the hotel part and didn't get the inclusive breakfast so can't comment on that. The location is very good, it is the best part of the beach in my opinion. Also you can use the swimming pool at the sister hotel - the Montra, which is lovely.
Cons: The pool could be looked after a little better, there are some lights coming off the walls. We stayed for a long time and it would have been good to have a fridge in our room - but I should have realised that when I booked.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Best location, great staff

Pros: Great location right on the beach with sunbeds provided. Short walk to shops and bars. Lovely pool. Large clean room with spacious balcony. Free pick up and drop off to pier great! Would definitely stay here again.

Pros: What a place!! Bans are just amazing, will definitely be returning. 5 minute shuttle journey off the ferry, which Bans picks you up from. Bans staff unbelievable, super friendly and also willing to help. Rooms super clean, have everything you need in them. And what can we say about Hampus our diving instructor!!!! Amazing!!!! My girlfriend is petrified of the sea but she wanted to fight her fears a give it a shot and without Hampus she would never of achieved what she did. He was so calm, gave her so much encouragement, made everything so easy and provided her with the best care! She is now an advanced diver! Bans also were so professional when in training and in the water, also providing top quality equipment. Hope to return soon! Thanks again Bans! (Ask for Hampus when booking)
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, very good service (called for beach towels and had a knock at the door within 5 minutes with fresh towels). Room is a good size with a good sized balcony. Cleaned really well every day, water, coffee and tea stocked up daily. There are 5 pools at the resort, many taken up by divers but there is a pool that is reserved for sunbathing only which has a good view of the reservoir. Good facilities, breakfast good, very filling and a great selection. Coffee was good too.
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The view they displayed during booking is exactly the one I got, and it was really beautiful. Their customer service is top notch. They were accommodating with me keeping my luggage at the reception even after my checkout in the afternoon while I Rome about the island the whole after before leaving for my night ferry.
Cons: No toiletries apart from 2 bars of soap. But everything else was perfect.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, great staff, great view, good food.
Cons: Beach is not the most beautiful. Matress was new, but bed was rock hard!
6.0 Good
Pros: We liked: - the room - the big fridge - they sorted the problem of transport when we needed to go to the room
Cons: - the location: we were EXTREMELY disappointed with the location as we looked at different hotels and we thought that this one was good quality and had a perfect location. However, when we arrived we realised that our room was quite far away from the beach and we needed to be transported all the time by a golf buggy to be able to go down as it was extremely hilly. We felt a bit misled regarding the description of the hotel and our room’s location. We would have never booked the hotel if we knew about this before. - room: the room had a lack of kitchen utilities. Also, free water was provided daily in plastic bottles which wasn’t really eco friendly.

Pros: Nice beds

A shuttle from the airport to the hotel is complimentary at scheduled times, and a ferry terminal shuttle is also provided at no charge.
3.8 Mediocre
Cons: Lizards in bedroom even though we payed extra for a private villa and ants crawling around the bed at night. Nothing in the area, so you are restricted to the hotel unless you get one of two free shuttles in the day or want to pay 500 bath for taxi. Staff very helpful.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: We were excited about the Tanote Villas! Starting with a pick up at the ferry, very warm welcoming and fast check in, taking us to beautiful spacious villas in georgeous tropical garden! Wow! What a view! And all the tropical sounds! Also amazing pools and a nice restaurant, great breakfast. And all the staff is just taking the amazing place to even greater level! Thank you all, we loved our stay with you!
Cons: The only disadvantage is a steep way to the beach.. and back.:-) On the other hand, thanks to that you have such great view. Also, no stores near by, but if you need something, you can take a free shuttle to the town.
7.0 Good
Pros: The staff was very friendly and seemed to enjoy working there. Tanote offered free snorkel kit and books as well as two daily transfers into town about 15 minutes drive awas from the place. The beach and other places to eat was only 5 minutes walk away.

Cons: - absolutely nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were excellent. It was more of a 4 star hotel than a hostel. Quiet, super Nice and really beautiful building and rooms.
Cons: The breakfast could have beingsa bit better.
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Really friendly stuff. Also hostel is right in the middle between beach and area of cafes and restaurant. Hostel has a clean pool. Not so crowded actually.
Cons: Breakfast has only two options. Not so much if you are staying for a long period, but it's not so critical.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is the best hostel in Koh Tao. It's spacious, modern, very clean. From the pool to the rooftop lounge, to the amazing breakfast and events that the staff set up, this is where you need to stay if you're visiting Koh Tao. If my other reservations had not been paid in full and non-refundable, I would have cancelled and stayed at The Dearly the entire time. It's truly amazing!
7.9 Good
Pros: Very clean, great staff, nice setting
Cons: Breakfat very poor Noisy room we can hear from other rooms
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hostel is really clean, the showers are powerful, the rooms are spacious. The staff are really friendly. The hostel also has alot of complimentary extras including free yoga classes most days, and a free shuttle to a different bay on the island everyday. The breakfast is also great - varied options including a hot asian option everyday. Not just the usual 'eggs and bread' breakfast most places do! Bit more expensive than other places but i think you get alot for that extra money.
Cons: The only thing they could improve is that they dont have free drinking water, other than at breakfast. This shocked me given most hostels in Asia seem to be offering this now to try and encourage people to cut down their plastic.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The activities that they plan for you (barbecue and beach crawl), very easy to meet people! The swimming pool is great and the dorms are very clean!
Cons: Nothing!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: This hostel felt like a proper hotel. Everything was really clean, comfortable, new and all in all extremely nice. The pool was amazing, an infinity pool that could be used by all the guests. The free breakfast was very good, fruit, toast and something thai ( fried rice or noodles). The hostel organized free transport to the beach every day which was nice for those guests who didn't rent motorbikes.
Cons: I was under the impression that this was a sociable hostel, don't get me wrong, they have all the facilities for being a sociable hostel (common room, patio, rooftop area) but I read some reviews that said they had a social activity every night which was not the case, it was pretty empty when I was there so everybody ended up in their room at night. It is pretty far away from the main area so if you don't have a bike it will be an expensive drive back home from the night out ( they do however offer a free shuttle to the Sairee beach at 17:00 and back at 20:30)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I've been here multiple times and can't recommend it enough. The best thing about this place is probably the staff. Not only do they do everything to make your stay here as comfortable as possible, they are also just very social and easy going. A pleasure to be around! The Dearly is more like a hotel then a hostel. They have both dorm rooms and plenty of private rooms. The pool, common room and the two (!) sunroofs are quiet and a great place to relax. On the patio/lobby there is usually some guests to hang out with. The accommodation is a little bit further away from the beach, but they have a free daily beach shuttle that will bring you to a different beach every day. During my first stay I used this a lot, as it is a great way to explore the island and meet new people. Besides that, they organise a beach crawl, BBQ and sunset tours every week. I'm travelling alone, but I also see plenty of couples and families having a good time. For solo travellers I can recommend the 6-bed dorm (with single beds) if you are tired of bunk beds all the time. I made a lot of new friends here and am already looking forward to my next visit! What I didn't mention yet: Good coffee; free breakfast with additional menu to order from the whole day; WiFi works everywhere in the building; it is super clean.
Cons: It's a bit more expensive then other accommodations on the island, but in my opinion the hospitality at the Dearly is totally worth it.

Pros: Location overlooks shark bay. Stunning sunrises and sunsets. The grounds are immaculate and the staff is friendly. The room is large and quiet.
Cons: Starting to feel a little outdated in the bathrooms. Still a lovely place after 10 years
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had an amazing View of the water & the sunset from the room balcony. The resort is located on top of the hill, bit out of the way so its perfect if you want to disconnect and honestly there is plenty to do in the resort so you don't feel like you want to go anywhere anyways. The layout is so perfect in the resort, all rooms are far from each other so plenty of privacy. There is also a boat service to the beach (about 3-4 mins) you tell them to pick you up at a certain time. You can rent snorkeling gear at the bottom of the resort and you can dive right in as they have created a nice stepping area to get right into it. The location for snorkeling is the best as boats come around that area and people jump in. The restaurant on the resort is very nice but we preferred the in room service. We got a Pizza & Burgers and they were both super Yum. The Pool area is lots of fun too. Plenty of sun-beds and it the deep-end is actually 2.2M. Overall a 10/10 for us.
Cons: Nothing :) If I was being super critical The amount of steps. But then again to get what they have achieved, this is the only way to get what they got so can't really complain about. wouldn't recommend it for someone with a disability.
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.

Yes many stairs but there is no condition for escalator. Helps to keep in shape. U must rent bike to enjoy it fully.
Cons: Need to pay for renting snorkeling equipment. & No free kayak ( other beardby hotels offer so ) Would like stuff especially in breakfast smile and be more nice, they are not rude whatsoever but some friendly notes form them would make experience better.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Gorgeous place! Stunning view. The room was private and beautiful and comfortable. It is quite remote so you will have to rent a motorbike as taxies to the city are really expensive. Bear in mind there is no beach - there is a beautiful beach quite close but costs 100BHT per person. We paid and really enjoyed. The pool is lovely and the food in the restaurant is really good.
Cons: The ‘spa’ was awful and a big disappointment. Don’t bother at all. The place is very simple and not pampering at all. The therapist didn’t speak any English and when trying to explain to her a certain pain that I had she didn’t try to understand or pay attention to the area. She was super young and not experienced- the massage was the worse one I got while in Thailand and I felt it was a big waste of money and time. I was rushed out not even offered a tea or relax a moment at the end as you’d expect from a ‘spa’ in a 5 star hotel. Don’t bother. Having said that - Everything else was great.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: It was a lovely place to stay in the mountains, the view was beautiful although it’s not the easiest to travel around freely however they have organised shuttle and boat times for guest convenience which you book at reception. The pool is lovely, they replace towels regularly. The bed is very comfortable, air conditioning is great and much needed! Overall a lovely luxurious treat for a couple of days.
Cons: Most places across Thailand and the islands are prices including VAT & tax and you choose whether you want to add service. This place is plus 10% service & 7% tax so just be aware, it’s already priced than most places but the extra 17% adds up! ALSO LOTS OF STAIRS. Not good for disabled, room 1 was at the bottom and it was a hot trek up!!!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful views from everywhere. Beautiful suite but no shower only a bathtub with a handheld shower head. Water all over the floor. Very strange. Beautiful grounds well cared for.
Cons: Jamahkiri is considered the nicest hotel on the island and the most expensive. Overpriced for what you get. We came from Bali and Vietnam where the hospitality was wonderful. Not the case here. Most of the staff seems so disinterested in their guests and job. The dining room is so beautiful but unfortunately the food was below standard including and especially breakfast. It is worth the price to pay an overpriced taxi to dine in town. We came to Koh Tao to dive to find that diving at Jamahkiri is double the cost of any other dive shop. Same water. Same fish. State of the art equipment. It was, however, lovely to come back at the end of the day to the hotel where it is quieter and more peaceful and pretty on this side of the island. Although it did not bother us it is important for any elderly or handicapped person to know that there are many many stairs to tackle. There is no other way. The photos on the website do reflect the beauty of the area and the hotel.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: one of the best hotels at this destination. great service and quality.
Cons: little bit of the hand if you plan to go to the downtown often. taxi ride is 10min and cost 500. motorbike is cheap but the road is not worth the risk if you don’t drive motorbike often.

The Public rooms really helped us with socializing with other backpackers. We only had one disadvantage. The location of the hostel isn’t that good.

Pros: The bay is absolutely beautiful. If you love to dive or snorkel this place will be for you. You see hundreds of fish swimming in the clear water right in-front of the hotel. Further down in the bay there is live coral with a vast array of fish to see. There is a very nice deck to sunbathe on. The staff were phenomenal, very attentive and helpful. Jay was just awesome!!!
Cons: The place needs a little TLC. Unfortunately the bathroom in our Villa had a nauseating smell for our entire stay. My wife didn’t even want to leave our toothbrushes there. This is a pitty as it is actually a lovely room with a beautiful view. The restaurant is fairly good, but at the price you pay you could except fine cuisine. I do however understand that it must be a mission for them to get stock to the hotel as it’s not central or close to anything it but atleast if you are charging fine dining rates then offer something similar. If you look past the price, then the food is on a good standard and very tasty.

Pros: The hotel is well isolated from noisy city and market, it's really the last untouched land on Koh Tao. It's so quite and calm and the Vue is magnificent. Right in front of the hotel you have one of the best snorkeling and diving site on the island, a tortle is living there. We have seen it lots of times, so cute and lovely. When the weather is good, there are kayak for free from the hotel, we used it to go far and to do snorkeling where there is no boat neither people. A real paradise for travelers looking for relaxation. There are lots of squirrels on the trees in hotel. And lots of coconut on the ground, you can just pick them up and enjoy it.
Cons: For people who would like to visit all the island or who needs to go to diving schools nearby the pier, the hotel is located quite far and expensive to call a taxi/boat

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The resort is about a 20 minute boat journey from the pier. It’s out the way of all the partying, if you’re looking for a peaceful getaway this is the perfect secretive location! The staff were amazingly friendly, you really feel as if you’re part of something during your stay. They offer 2 free boat services into the mainland at 8am and 12:30. They return at 15:30. If you want to stay in the mainland longer they can pick you up at an arranged time but this costs 250 Thai baht per person. The owner of this hotel is a true gentleman and the restaurant is mainly Italian with a twist of Thai, truly splendid! From our room, the view of mango bay was absolutely magnificent and I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for a peaceful break for a few days!
Cons: The only bad thing about this property in my opinion is that you can only get there by boat unless you’re willing to hike down a long dirt track. I was tempted to take this route by moped but my girlfriend didn’t fancy this idea! So if you want to stay in the mainland unfortunately the last boat service is at 19:30!

Pros: Obviously COVID19 has quieted the area but we absolutely loved our stay here & extended by 2 days plus the snorkelling right off the beach amazing & the food Devine!!
Cons: Nothing!!
7.0 Good
Pros: The location was perfect for us. The hotel area was quiet but still close to everything. No sounds carried from the restaurants or the street. The AC was excellent. Wifi worked well. The bathroom was spacious and the shower was good. The fridge was big enough to fit what we needed and it kept everything cold. The room interior was modern and attractive.
Cons: Breakfast was not included. The stairs to our room can be a bit dangerous for someone having trouble with movement. The nearby garden attracted some mosquitos and we found some ants and a spider in our room, though this was not such a big deal for us. The door could be locked from the inside with only a small latch, which could be opened from outside using a credit card. No other view outside of the windows but walls.
7.9 Good
Pros: It’s a very nice resort and I think is fairly new. I like the design and rooms were very spacey. Location wise you are close to the beach, which is quite a nice one. Everything is working as it should.
Cons: Staff is scares, they do a lot of jobs,so it difficult sometimes to find them.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The apartment is very modern, very comfortable and had everything we needed. Bathroom very big. The location is very good as well. In terms of the apartment, nothing to complain. The restaurant is amazing with a great view.
Cons: The reception was always empty. We waited for 15 minutes to try to get info about the tours but nobody appeared and we booked in another place. The restaurant was very good, but quite expensive if compared with other restaurants in the surrounding areas.

Pros: Best location on Sairee beach. We had bungalow 2 and 3, which are located closest to water/beach/snorkeling. Lovely snorkeling just outside the resort. Friendly staff that brings fresh fruit every day to your doorstep. We had breakfast included, and as this resort does not have their own restuarant, they have solved this with their neighbour ”DD hut” 1 minute Walk around the corner.

Pros: This hotel was so good. Me and my friend had been backpacking for 3 weeks already and during that time we only stayed in hostels. We were so relieved to get here because everything was even more beautiful than in the pictures. The room was really big and clean and the pool was AMAZING. It was in a quiet place but really close to the party scene.
