Our stay at Sun Smile was arranged by our dive school, New Way Diving. They could not have picked a better spot for our first few nights in Koh Tao! We stayed at Sun Smile for 6 nights, and only shared the dorm room with other guests on the first and last night. So- a large part of our great...

We we're welcomed by the friendliest staff, with a huge smile, a drink and some information about Koh Tao. The room was really spacy and clean. Cleaning was everyday with fresh towels and bedding. Very well located close to the beach, restaurants and bars. Highly recommended!

Really calm area, and clean wide beds. Attached bath. Room is cleaned daily and they even make your bed ! Owner is helpful with explaining any doubts you have and arranges a drop off at the pier of you book tickets with him. Better than arranging a taxi honestly. All in all good place to stay.

We used Sun Smile's ticket and booking service for a day trip around the island and for fairy tickets. They were very nice, very helpful and professional. Highly recommended! (we have also had bad experiences in koh Tao to compare with)

Me and my girlfriend stayed here for 3 nights and arrived early after getting the overnight bus from Bangkok and we were checked in straight away even though it was quite early. We were greeted very warmly and were given lots of useful information on things to do on the island and tips on the best Thai places to eat...

We have just had two nights at this great hotel. The staff are the best - so very helpful. Thanks to their recommendations we ate at good places and had the best day trip boating and snorkelling around the island. There are a hundred and one little extras about this place that add to a great stay. The rooms are...

We had a fantastic 7 day stay at this hotel mainly thanks to the staff and management. Initially we only intended to stay 3 days as we also wanted to visit other sides of Koh Tao island, however the service at Sun Smile kept us from moving on. The room we stayed in was very comfortable, clean, well kept, included...

HE showed us where authentic thai food was away from the tourist traps as well. The rooms were nice and cool with AC with a cute balcony. The free coffee, beach towels,...
