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.

A group of us just stayed here and we all found it to be great . Right on the beach and located within a few hundred metres off the main hub of restaurants and bars .. Has many little bars right near it but they are far enough not to disturb you .. All the rooms were bright , comfortable and modern , they even had Netflix on a 32" led tv . We stayed in 7 different hotels on our holiday and this hotel was one of the best .. The reception lady was extremely helpful and spoke good English even if she didn't think so herself..
Our rooms were located on the 1st floor overlooking the main pathway but this wasn't a problem with noise or light as had excellent blackout curtains if you like getting up late ..
The only thing that's a negative if you can call it that ,is there is no pool , but don't think loads of hotels located this close to the ferry port and beach need them or have the room for them .. If I go back to Ko Tao I will definitely would come back to this hotel , but would pay for the rooms on the opposite side of the corridor overlooking the beach and sunset .

The hotel was perfect. It's small and overlooks the ocean and the beach. It's very close to the main street and has lots of amenities nearby. We stayed here as accomodation while we were diving. The rooms are white and clean and the flat screen TV on the wall had Netflix so we logged into our Netflix account and watched all of our favourite shows when we were back from scubadiving. This was honestly one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. If you like calm, ocean noises and absolute serenity, you will appreciate this hotel in its fullest.

I would echo a lot of Chelsea’s review below.

Staff were very helpful and organised us a last minute island tour without fuss.

Our room was first/second floor (not ground) and so we had a balcony. I was happy to have not paid a premium for the netted area as people will come and place their towels immediately around and below you. Instead we had a balcony with a comfy L shape sofa which caught the sun and meant we could gaze out at the beach and sunset.

Our room was also further enough down the hotel (room 112) that we picked up some light bass from the bar but it was not really invasive. Honestly people slamming doors to their rooms is more of an issue, but you find discourteous people anywhere.

The renovations… again didn’t hugely impact but I could see that it would grate on some people. Hopefully once complete they don’t run it as a night time bar as that will be disruptive to the rooms above (inherently further away from the other bar) AND importantly they will have a breakfast offering worth going to.

We ignored the offer of breakfast and went to the nearby The Factory Cafe which is superb.

Overall I would cautiously recommend a stay. I was concerned it was going to be a 3/10 stay based on the other reviews and it was more 7.5/10.

This is a great location for a hotel regardless of what type of trip you’re making.
If you get a bottom floor room facing the ocean, you get a really cool suspended net over the beach to lay on.
You can get direct access from your room to the beach and it’s a 100m walk either side to a great club or quiet bar.

For our travel we booked different hotel (Thalassa) but owners upgraded us to that hotel and gave us a fabolous sea view room. The views there are amazing, sea is 15 meters away at day, and 5-7 meters away at night from the balcony.
It was so good to fall asleep under the sounds of the sea.
Staff is very nice and helpful, room is superior clean and furniture is absolutely new. Huge TV screen also was nice to watch our favorite TV series.
We loved staying here and we already want to return there.

The only downside was the lack of breakfast option 😊

This review is from my experience staying at this hotel for a week. The location is great if you enjoy live music and party all night kinda traveler. The rooms are a hit or miss if you're lucky enough to get one of the FIVE beachfront rooms. The rests are mediocre at best but still expensive. I moved to beachfront room from "city view" room (to which only some abandoned parcel of land is all you can see from the windows), and then moved to beach view room which are on the 2nd floor that gets really warm during the day. My final verdict: Stay if you can get the beachfront room and enjoy the nightlife, otherwise look elsewhere and save a good sum of money.

Hotel is well situated. I would suggest they make provision for guests to enjoy some light drinks at a bar to be created or put at Hotel. Also the fact that breakfast are not served at Hotel is a concern. Staff at Restaurant providing breakfast on behalf of Hotel is not friendly and helpful.

Otherwise Hotel is fine to stay jver for one night.

We stayed here as a couple for the last few days in Koh Tao. It was a perfect location as was directly on the beach and next to lots of restaurants and shops. The staff were very friendly and helpful and checked up on us to see how we were finding our stay. The room was spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable. This is an ideal hotel for young couples or groups to stay. The only thing I would note it that at night time it was very noisy outside and you could hear lots of people talking and playing music. However this aside, we still chose to stay at the hotel for an extra night than initially planned as we really liked it.

Dear Amy! Thank you for your feedback and kind words, means a lot to us. We know it can be noise in the evenings with the bars next door and people walking on the beach road, for that we have earplugs for free in the reception for the light sleepers. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us!

Handsdown the best hotel i have stayed at in the world. On the beach, quiet, excellent service, brilliant sunsets, clean, super helpful staff and take care of everything you need. if you need to party, hop on next door and if you want quiet, that is also an option. in the center of all action, highly recommend it

At the heart of the main beach of Koh Tao, excellent location, beachfront with great view. The staff is very nice. Good breakfast.
The rooms are very clean with modern air conditioning. They have good size. This might be a little bit noisy during the night because of the beach club close to this place, but no big deal for us after diving :)
