6.7 Good
Pros: Nice staff
Cons: No hot shower. WiFi doesn’t work on the dorm rooms. Breakfast is a buffet so if you arrive late won’t have much left for you. Really tiny toilets with a low roof, not good if you’re a tall person. beds are not that comfortable either. The most important: it’s a Spanish hostel, most costumers are Spanish speakers so if you can’t speak Spanish it might be a bit difficult for you to meet people.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved everything about the Dearly Koh Tao Hostel! We planned to stay 3 nights but decided spontaneously to book one more night because we liked everything so much about this hostel. We booked the Superior Suite and had an amazing spacious room with a nice balcony. the breakfast was good, there was a breakfast buffet everyday but we we could chose from an extra menue as guests of a private room, so we had a huge breakfast variety. The pool was great too. What made our stay in the Dearly Hostel so special though was their staff. They are the funniest, most warmhearted, helpful and friendly staff ever. If you got any questions or problems they will help you out (whether where to grab the most delicious food, where to find the best beaches or how to solve a gecko-problem :) and the list goes on and on... ). All in one this stay made our trip to Koh Tao unforgettable and if we should come back one day, we will again book the Dearly Hostel for sure! Thank you guys, you are amazing!!!
Cons: NOTHING
9.0 Excellent
Pros: - great location if you are looking to relax and stay away from the crowds of drunk youngsters - staff is great, very helpful and welcoming guys - fantastic facilities: patio, common room area, rooftop, THE POOL (the pool is awesome!) - the whole place is kept pristine clean at all times - loved the barbeque night! - beach shuttle comes in very handy
Cons: Things I've missed: - eggs for breakfast; - curtains on bunk beds. Had to shorten up my stay for one night simply because the ferries were overbooked for the date I needed. Didn't get any money back for that cancelled night. Staff referred to "2 day in advance cancellation policy" which I can understand but it was sort of an "emergency" situation. I would apprecite more flexibility from the hostel considering the circumstances and the price per night.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: It's brand new, amazing pool, great facilities, spacious, well thought through, spotless, friendly staff, perfect activities, free tours, good vibes! Thank you!
Cons: There was nothing to not like :)

Pros: Rooms are really spacious and tidy and house keeping staff is quite helpful. People at the reception will assist you with everything possible like bike rental, bus/ferry ticket booking. Breakfast and other meals offered are worth its value.
Cons: If drinking water can be provided 24×7 and not just during breakfast hours.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I liked the staff, they are really friendly and know you by name. It felt a little bit like home. They also organize trips to the beach, for free. So even though a night is quite expensive, it’s totally worth it! Very good vibe.
Cons: Nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great hostel, with a good vibe. Its pretty big hostel which is very clean and luxurious. Some nice places close by to eat and the family bbq and the morning breakfast was nice.
Cons: Bit far from everything if you do not have a motorbike and quite far from the main part of town. It was also too large of a place so was hard to meet people but was lucky to meet everyone in my room.

Cons: No free water during the day.

When you stay at Sensi Paradise Beach Resort in Koh Tao, you'll be on the beach, a 5-minute drive from Shark Bay and 6 minutes from Sairee Beach. Featured amenities include limo/town car service, complimentary newspapers in the lobby, and dry cleaning/laundry services. A ferry terminal shuttle is provided at no charge, and free self parking is available onsite.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: For a 3 star hotel they have a lot on offer. Turn down, afternoon tea, ferry pick-up/return. Perfect location on the beach with huge snorkelling area with a ship wreck, and 2 pool areas. Amazing view from breakfast and fresh mango. The boats in the morning didn't bother us and it is nothing like Ao Nang... We had lunch at the restaurant and it was good food/value.
Cons: They do not offer a happy hour which would have made us stay there instead of venturing outside. Which is not a big issue... There are some mosquitos but we bought so Mosquito Repellent Coil in 7Eleven (for 20 baht) and kept the outdoor fan on maximum for when we sat outside so that was OK. We didn't experience mosquitos in the house.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location facilities food staff
Cons: Nothing not to like
7.0 Good
Pros: The hotel is close to all the action... restaurants, bars, massage... but away from the noise. The pool is beautiful but not on the beach. The staff were very considerate and attentive.
Cons: The bungalow was very dark with poor lighting. The mattress was very hard and the property did not have any mattress toppers to make it better.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff are very friendly and attentive. The location is quiet but close enough to amble to the main ‘strip’ in a few minutes. The rooms/huts are rustic but quite private with lots of space and a great veranda. Breakfast is good and plentiful with restaurants overlooking the bay. The main restaurant serves very reasonably priced and good food with a fresh fish choice each day. The private beach has lots of places to sit and the pools are fantastic, again with lots of sun beds. Each afternoon we were left a pot of green tea with some cakes and sometimes some bananas. You can snorkel straight off the beach and see a wide variety of fish. All in all great value for money. We booked for two nights and decided to stay for six as it was so relaxing.
Cons: The beds are not firm, they are hard! The pillows also, but that seems to be the norm on Koh Tao. There was nowhere to store your clothes, so you were living out of your bag.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location staff meals rooms

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.
9.2 Excellent
Cons: Not the best Beachside, but if you drive a motorbike, not a problem
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 Location. Clean rooms. Good service.
Cons: Check-out time 11am. Dark bathroom - needs better lighting.
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: Location, cleanliness and room generally.
Cons: Nothing, v happy

Cons: The beds are very hard and difficult to sleep.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: perfect location, comfort beds, clean rooms
Cons: the water pressure in the new part is very weak, a bit noisy from the new breeze restaurant
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Really a pleasant and convenient place. Very central – right by the ferry – but quiet at night. The beach outside is not the absolute best on the island, but it is literally a few meters away. You have an easy walk to Sairee or a longer walk through a forest walk to more secluded beaches south. There are mosquitos around, but keep the doors locked in by dusk and dawn and turn on the scary insect poison thingy, and you'll sleep peacefully! The staff was very friendly and helpful if we wondered about anything.
Cons: The wifi was dying on me in the evenings when everybody was back from the beach. But this wouldn't really be an issue if it wasn't for me having to work. There is a work hub just up the road if you for some ungodly reason need to work though!

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

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.

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
Cons: - would have preferred a duvet instead of a sheet
8.0 Excellent
Pros: Perfect location. Clean room. We didn't listen any music or bikes from our room. The restaurant is really nice, as a guest you don't get any discount. We recommend it, close to the beach and on the heart of the main street.
Cons: The bathroom is small, everything gets wet. There is a squeegee to dry the floor. Our room was really close to the laundry and we could hear it during all day working.

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.

A ferry terminal shuttle is provided at no charge, and free self parking is available onsite.
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.
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.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. The room, the service, the restaurant, the pool. Everything was great.
Cons: I liked everything but the commute there, wasn't very practical if on a moped as an intermediate driver. So ended up getting 4x4 taxis everywhere. But other than that, it was sublime.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Location (shark bay) is fantastic for relaxing and snorkelling. We had the chance to swim with turtles and sharks (small ones) several times by swimming literally in front of our room (2 min walk). Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are big, clean and very comfortable. We had the best sleep in all the hotels we visited in Thailand. Overall, I definitely recommend this hotel on Ko Tao!
Cons: The breakfast should be improved, there were no fresh juices, bread and pastries were not great and hot dishes doesn't offer much vegetarian choice. Also, you might have read it in other reviews, but there are a lot of stairs in the hotel. From our room to the reception, we counted 200 of them. Personally it didn't bother us too much but one should be aware of it. Finally, the location of the hotel is far away from the city center (where everything happens) so if you want to eat and do things outside of the hotel (which I would definitely recommend given hotel prices), you would want to rent a scooter to move come and go easily. Yes, the road to the hotel looks terrible and is very steep but we personally did it relatively easily with a 125cc scooter (I would recommend to take the hotel shuttle and rent one in the city center).
9.0 Excellent
Cons: The only thing I would say is there are a hell of a lot of steps so I would recommend being reasonably fit to stay at this resort for any length of time, and also the gym really lets this place down which is a shame because the rest of the resort is really well looked after! (Not that you’ll need it after all the steps!) In fairness to the resort anywhere in that part of the island has just as many steps/steep climbs
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.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Absolutely everything!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: - Friendly staff. - Great breakfast with wide variety and clean surroundings. There were staff members serving as baristas. - Free pool table in the reception. - Very friendly staff. - Short 15 mins walk from the beach. Hotel provides shuttle services which are free at certain times. - Great setting amongst the surrounding palm trees. - The semi-private pool was pleasant.
Cons: - Privacy was not complete when using the bathroom facilities in the room, as there was a window looking onto communal areas (although there were blinds). - There was a problem with the door locking mechanism, which meant we had to ask for the reception to open our room each time. This was resolved on our third and final night. - Room cleaning services were okay but failed to remove dirty dishes from room service on one occasion.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Almost everything! Our room was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food at the restaurant was great, a shame we didn’t get to try the Japanese restaurant because their Thai dishes were really good. Our stay was really one of the best experiences we’ve had in Thailand.
Cons: The only thing that was a tad inconsistent was the WiFi connection. Other than that, really a perfect place to stay in Koh Tao!
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel os beautiful and very clean design. The rooms are very nice ;) the cocktails and smoothies in the roof top was goon. The shakes in the breakfast was good too. There os shuttle to the center and back in certain times for free ( To the pier to)
Cons: There was smell os mold in the rooms (we ordered 2 rooms). There was a problem with coding the key cards for the rooms and we were need to call the staff every time we wanted to get in to the room. They didn't tell say that on the beginnig and eventually they moved us yo another room after someone checked out and he has only one key. Very inconvenient for 2 people. The breakfast was just ok, pretty poor. The way the resort build is hard to climb (hard climbing even to the reception)
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Amazing restaurant with views, great food. Staff is super friendly (exceeding even thai standards)...
5.8 Okay
Pros: Clean Although location is far from the beach (not even a walking distance), there was always available transportation to take us to the famous sairee beach.
Cons: We first booked the sunset room. The balcony was super small, you could barely enjoy the sunset. We changed rooms later, the view was great. The balcony just lacks a bit of light at night Breakfast was very boring. Why not have fruit section! We’re in thailand!
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.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast wasn’t so good as expected. Otherwise we loved to stay in high level honeymoon cottage. Really value of the money.
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.
7.1 Good
Pros: Great location, very calm apartment (white tree villa 3), very clean, one gecko as our pet, but really nice and soo shy, breakfast was great, great opportunities to choose between Thai and western style.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Honeymoon sweet was amazing!
Cons: Restaurant not the best, better food can be found a short walk down the beach.
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;).
8.0 Excellent
Pros: The room was AMAZING!! We had a room with a sea view and it was heaven. The only reason why I will think twice before going back is the bad service I got from the woman in the front reception. She is clearly in the wrong job and she doesn't know how to provide a service! She made me feel so unwelcome that I almost packed my stuff and mooved to another hotel.
Cons: We had a problem with our hot water in our room. They told me that if I want to have hot water to shower, I need to switch on the AC
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Very quirky. Showering outside was a strange concept but very cool.
Cons: Mosquitoes
8.0 Excellent
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.

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.

Pros: Staff were so friendly! This was our favourite accommodation the whole trip in Thailand. Not far from restaurants/ beach but it was nice and quiet! The hotel provided transfers at a really reasonable price. The rooms were lovely and also very clean. Pool was fab too! 100% recommend this place
Cons: Nothing
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Nice hotel, 15 minutes to town. Nice pool, everything new and clean.
7.1 Good
Pros: Clean hotel. Lovely pool area. Rooms are nice and clean. Great aircon. The food was reasonably priced and nice. The Acai smoothie bowls are lovely! Coffee is great. Strong! Just such a pity the atmosphere is more welcoming, and more customer service focused.
Cons: Vibe in the place isn't nice. Feels like they're trying to get money out of you, so just felt a bit uncomfortable from the start. It's one of the only hotels that charge for pick up from the pier. But we didn't mind because it was cheap, but still, it would feel more welcoming. Then at reception you see you have to pay to use pool towels. When you arrive to your room there's a list of prices for things if you break them right beside the bed. Use the toilet and there's a sign above it that says if they have to call a plumber, you have to pay. We felt like we were walking on eggshells in case anything happened we'd be held responsible. You even have to pay to use the pool table. They're all small things but just make for an unpleasant experience in our opinion. They also take 500 baht for a key deposit, but don't give it back until your room has been checked which I've never seen before. We didn't have any problems with them, but we felt uncomfortable during our stay. Felt like warnings you'd see in a party hostel, not a hotel. It's a nice hotel, just a pity the vibe is so cold. Also, when we asked to change one of our pillows because it was really thick and hurt my neck it was so high, we were told they had no other pillows. Then they said all the rooms had one small and one big pillow. Very obvious he just didn't want to help. Then another guy came and said he'd have it changed for us. So we appreciated that. Very strange response from the first guy though.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Location is 600m from the city center, hence you are at walking distance from everything is happening, but at the same time you can enjoy the calm of the hotel! Breakfast is amazing! The staff booked a snorkeling tour called Oxygen, the best activity in Koh Tao we experienced! Everything was excellent, the room giant and well equipped with a kitchenette.
Cons: Nothing!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The property has a nice pool, clean rooms, big bed....easy to find with a transfer provided form and to the pier (normally 400 thb each way) CrossFit gym next door which I loved. Had a smoothie bowl everyday....vegan berry blitz is amazing. Frozen strawberries and raspberries, sliced banana, grated coconut and granola on top for 280 Thb and vegan! The staff are super friendly, help you plan ferrys , boat trips, directions, places to eat etc. Book Your ferry with them for a free transfer and saves you money.
Cons: It’s a little walk away from the main area, I didn’t hire a scooter and walked there and back everyday! Just be prepared for the hill on the way home....it wasn’t bad just a warning if you don’t want to walk
7.0 Good
Pros: Not much really. Was thinking to extend my stay before arrival, but moved to other place instead.
Cons: Staff is from Burma, not Thai, other words very lazy. Pool hours is 9am to 9pm, if you use pool other times fine 2000 baht. Breakfast which is included in the rate very poor compare to regular alacarte menu. Extra tea bag cost me 50 baht (very small cup). Too many windows are watching you, had to close curtains all time. No working desk in the room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Clean and good facilities
Cons: A little further out of town than we’d like
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Clean and modern and quiet.
Cons: A little far from the beach but perhaps if you’re looking for quiet that’s a plus.

Both private and dormitory-style rooms are available, with private or shared bathroom facilities. There is free WiFi. The hostel has a rooftop relaxing area, as well as a common room with a flat-screen TV, books and a computer. There is also a refrigerator for guests to use.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We loved everything about the Dearly Koh Tao Hostel! We planned to stay 3 nights but decided spontaneously to book one more night because we liked everything so much about this hostel. We booked the Superior Suite and had an amazing spacious room with a nice balcony. the breakfast was good, there was a breakfast buffet everyday but we we could chose from an extra menue as guests of a private room, so we had a huge breakfast variety. The pool was great too. What made our stay in the Dearly Hostel so special though was their staff. They are the funniest, most warmhearted, helpful and friendly staff ever. If you got any questions or problems they will help you out (whether where to grab the most delicious food, where to find the best beaches or how to solve a gecko-problem :) and the list goes on and on... ). All in one this stay made our trip to Koh Tao unforgettable and if we should come back one day, we will again book the Dearly Hostel for sure! Thank you guys, you are amazing!!!
Cons: NOTHING
9.0 Excellent
Pros: - great location if you are looking to relax and stay away from the crowds of drunk youngsters - staff is great, very helpful and welcoming guys - fantastic facilities: patio, common room area, rooftop, THE POOL (the pool is awesome!) - the whole place is kept pristine clean at all times - loved the barbeque night! - beach shuttle comes in very handy
Cons: Things I've missed: - eggs for breakfast; - curtains on bunk beds. Had to shorten up my stay for one night simply because the ferries were overbooked for the date I needed. Didn't get any money back for that cancelled night. Staff referred to "2 day in advance cancellation policy" which I can understand but it was sort of an "emergency" situation. I would apprecite more flexibility from the hostel considering the circumstances and the price per night.

Pros: It's brand new, amazing pool, great facilities, spacious, well thought through, spotless, friendly staff, perfect activities, free tours, good vibes! Thank you!
Cons: There was nothing to not like :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Rooms are really spacious and tidy and house keeping staff is quite helpful. People at the reception will assist you with everything possible like bike rental, bus/ferry ticket booking. Breakfast and other meals offered are worth its value.
Cons: If drinking water can be provided 24×7 and not just during breakfast hours.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I liked the staff, they are really friendly and know you by name. It felt a little bit like home. They also organize trips to the beach, for free. So even though a night is quite expensive, it’s totally worth it! Very good vibe.
Cons: Nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Great hostel, with a good vibe. Its pretty big hostel which is very clean and luxurious. Some nice places close by to eat and the family bbq and the morning breakfast was nice.
Cons: Bit far from everything if you do not have a motorbike and quite far from the main part of town. It was also too large of a place so was hard to meet people but was lucky to meet everyone in my room.

Pros: Everything else.
Cons: No free water during the day.

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.
7.0 Good
Pros: Nice hostel, good vegan food and cute dogs. The showers were great! And they give you two fluffy pillows which I loved!
Cons: No social atmosphere and staff did not seem interested in their guests.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We really liked this hostel. The host were very helpfull and offered a lot of tours. We booked the snorkeling tour here, which was great. The rooms where nice and cold. They had a very soft bed and big lockers. We thought the badrooms were good too. Nice shower in a small room with a sink and a toilet in it too. 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. You can walk to Freedom Beach, but the centre is too far for walking. If you rent a scooter this would be okay. Overall we would definetly recommend this hostel.

A ferry terminal shuttle is provided at no charge, and free self parking is available onsite.
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.
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.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. The room, the service, the restaurant, the pool. Everything was great.
Cons: I liked everything but the commute there, wasn't very practical if on a moped as an intermediate driver. So ended up getting 4x4 taxis everywhere. But other than that, it was sublime.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Location (shark bay) is fantastic for relaxing and snorkelling. We had the chance to swim with turtles and sharks (small ones) several times by swimming literally in front of our room (2 min walk). Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are big, clean and very comfortable. We had the best sleep in all the hotels we visited in Thailand. Overall, I definitely recommend this hotel on Ko Tao!
Cons: The breakfast should be improved, there were no fresh juices, bread and pastries were not great and hot dishes doesn't offer much vegetarian choice. Also, you might have read it in other reviews, but there are a lot of stairs in the hotel. From our room to the reception, we counted 200 of them. Personally it didn't bother us too much but one should be aware of it. Finally, the location of the hotel is far away from the city center (where everything happens) so if you want to eat and do things outside of the hotel (which I would definitely recommend given hotel prices), you would want to rent a scooter to move come and go easily. Yes, the road to the hotel looks terrible and is very steep but we personally did it relatively easily with a 125cc scooter (I would recommend to take the hotel shuttle and rent one in the city center).
9.0 Excellent
Cons: The only thing I would say is there are a hell of a lot of steps so I would recommend being reasonably fit to stay at this resort for any length of time, and also the gym really lets this place down which is a shame because the rest of the resort is really well looked after! (Not that you’ll need it after all the steps!) In fairness to the resort anywhere in that part of the island has just as many steps/steep climbs
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.

Pros: The room was big and exactly the same as advertised. The staff was nice, location is good - on the Lamai 'nigh-life street', but in a quiet part of it. The beach is nice here.
Cons: There were a lot of mosquitos because of the green area, but the staff put repellent every day in the room, so it was not a big issue inside. The wifi was not working in the room, only near the reception. They've changed all towels every day even if i didn't put the 'i need cleaning' table to the door.

Cons: NA
9.0 Excellent
Pros: I booked this hotel last minute - 30 minutes before arrival at In Touch Resort - due to a horrible hotel where we initially would have stayed, and luckily we were not disappointed with In Touch Resort. We had a studio room with a balcony and a lovely view on the garden with trees and you could see the sea and the beach as well. The bathroom was big and clean with two sinks, and the shower was hot and had good water pressure. The staff that I bumped into who were cleaning are very friendly. The airconditioning worked and the room itself was big enough with sufficient storage space. Every day we got new bathroom and beach towels. Good WiFi connection. Location is excellent. Lots of bars and restaurants. Every night we had a good night sleep as it is very quiet. Bonus: all the cute friendly cats who love to play and getting some attention (just wash your hands after it). And we noted that other hotel guests also enjoyed the cats as well and more specifically a cute little white/blond cat with big blue eyes. They can play in the big garden. The hotel should not increase its price, because that would be a bit pricey for what it is. During peak season, the hotel price is good.
Cons: Considering its price and location, the hotel is good. However, if there is anything to improve: beach loungers for hotel guests and the matras of the is too hard, but the pillows are too soft. The seating area of the studio room with balcony would be better if there was airconditioning and a TV. The breakfast at the hotel was ok. There are better options around the area. If In Touch Resort would increase its price, then there are better and nicer hotels in the area.

Pros: The location is perfect, close to everything, the pier, restaurants, bares, etc. The room is very big and the restaurant is very good too!

Pros: Location was the best in such a busy resort as it proved to be quiet. Close proximity to shops and restaurants. The view down to sea was nice. Resort of sairi beach was surprisingly very quiet in high season. Fruit was provided free of charge in the afternoon.
Cons: The room was comfortable but could have been cleaner. The pool was nice but again could have been kept cleaner throughout the day. It was expensive and not value for money. Staff were a little unhelful and disinterested. There was no bar or restaurant or cafe.It was more of a 2 star than 3 in terms of facilities.

Cons: I stayed in a triple room with two friends, the bungalow is really spacious, modern and beautiful. A very nice touch from the owner to give a fruit plate for every new arrival and a little goodbye souvenir. The location is perfect, as it's close to the pier (no need to take a taxi when arriving) and at the beautiful beach Sairee, with bungalows overlooking the sea. Our stay was really pleasant.
