Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I booked the “Penthouse pool villa” for 7 nights, 08/13-08/20/19. It looked so good on Agoda and the reviews were great. We stayed for 4 nights and had to move to a real hotel at the beach. The water stopped unpredictably a few times a day everyday and they couldn’t do much. The final draw was on the 4th night that my 9 years old son was in the middle of the shower, had shampoo on his hair and the water stopped running. Texts and calls to Lin Lin were not answered. In a panic (he was screaming that his eyes hurt) I used ice cold drinking water to wash the shampoo off his face and heat up more drinking water to rinse him off. The reason I was told was that the water pump was not powerful enough. When other room used water, ours would be out and nothing they could do about it! What!?! I contacted Francis about the move to the hotel at the beach and he promised a refund on the 3 unused nights but after a few weeks of back and forth. He just disappeared. No more responding to any texts, Agoda messages, or WhatsApp. NO REFUND! If you are reading this, Francis, running water is a necessity and not a luxury. If you cannot provide it, don’t rent out the room!! Anyway here are the pros and cons we’ve found with this place. Pros: Gorgeous views! Spacious Free drinking water kitchen Big Balcony Access to the rooftop with shaded lounge area Peaceful and quiet Less mosquitoes than near the beach but because of the broken screens, windows, and doors, some did get in. Cons: It’s way up high on the hill and transportation is needed to go almost everywhere (except for the Blue Heaven across the street) No stores in a walking distance The taxi that had a “deal” with the villa charged ฿400 for a 10-15 min ride to the beach. So, at least ฿800 a day. The balcony walls are so low, very dangerous Tiny “pool”. It’s about the size of a king size bed Most windows, doors, and screens in need of major repairs. Some couldn’t be opened and most couldn’t be closed properly. Only 1 bedroom had an A/C and even though they said we wouldn’t be needing an a/c up there because of the breeze. Wrong! The breeze didn’t reach that bedroom because of the living room wall. Who designed this place!?! Bathroom had no ventilation nor window. Very stuffy. No hot water. Dining room’s roof was not “sealed”. We had a heavy rain and strong wind and a lot of water got in and some got onto my laptop. Impossible to secure the place when we were out or at night. All in all, this place needs a lot of repairs. It’s dangerous for children, especially small children. We would never go back.

Just had a 4 night stay, the only negative thing I have to say is that we foolishly didn't book for longer!! Cannot recommend highly enough, amazing views, amazing hospitality, everything was perfect. All recommendations from Francis were perfect and he made our stay on the island so easy and enjoyable. Thank you so much, we will definitely return one day.

Almost a 360degree view and peace and quiet. It's nice to be in town but sometimes the hills are more relaxed. Must stay and I hope to be back. Thanks guys for making us feel welcome and for having such a wonderful place.

We stayed 2 nights in the 2bedroom ocean view pool villa penthouse and I highly recommend this lovely place for your stay on Koh Tao! Sunrise and sunset from the terrasse, private pool to get a refresh during the day, mini bar in the fridge and big TV with strong wi-fi in the living room to chill and relax with movies or music! Comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchen... nothing to add, you must visit them!

Not only did the UK owner Francis answer his phone when we arrived on the night boat at 5am (8 hours before check in) but he came to the peir and let us into our room to have a shower and a nap. POP villas took care of everything from our rushed laundry, to directions and even booking tickets. The place was beautiful and modern with balconies to see both the sunrise and sunset. Netflix in the TV which was great for a rainy day and the most comfortable bed I've slept on in Asia. The only unfortunate thing I felt is that we could only stay two nights!

We were due to stay at other accommodation as part of our honeymoon but unfortunately they had somewhere issues and managed to get us booked in for a week here instead. We stayed for three nights in the two bedroom villa and three nights in the three bedroom villa. Both are absolutely amazing! The two bedroom villa (the penthouse) has a plunge pool and outstanding views to the front and back. The villa is well equipped with an open plan kitchen/living area and a great bathroom. The three bedroom villa (sunset villa) has an actual pool and again is spacious and well equipped. The only thing people might find an issue (it wasn’t for us as we liked the quiet, relaxed feel) is the fact that there aren’t many amenities, shops, restaurants or bars nearby. There is one, lovely restaurant (Blue Heaven) just down the road, which we went to a few times. There is also takeaway options (there is a Thai phone provided) and all the info is in the welcome pack. Lastly, the owner, Francis, could not be more accommodating. He helped us out with any guidance we needed, including booking trips and where the good places to go are. Thanks again for a lovely stay!

Francis was absolutely amazing! Literally helped with everything he could. It was so relaxed and stunning I can’t recommend it enough. The place was beautiful and a perfect base, exceptional facilities and a perfectly laid out spacious apartment for the 2 of us. Don’t have any doubts it’s absolutely the right decision to stay here! Thanks Francis! Hopefully see you soon!!! Beth & Joel

Pop villas is on one of the highest points on the island which means the views from the villa are second to none. I stayed with my family in the top villa which has an amazing roof terrace. Peaceful and tranquil ideal for yoga and meditation. The villa itself is clean and modern with everything you would need. Francis the owner is such a nice guy and was always contactable and willing to help us out with any arrangements/excursions. I would definitely stay there again and have no issues recommending this place to anyone wanting to go to Koh Tao. Thank you Francis I’m sure we’ll be back. Ronnie
