Dear Management of the run down Hillside Resort, It is about time that you spent some money on your establishment! We stayed here for 4 nights, twice we complained about our air conditioning, and your staff attempted to fix it with no success. It was hotter inside our room, than the outside temperature. While walking on your pier my foot...

This place was the perfect getaway at christmas from staying in dorms and guest houses whilst we're backpacking around the world. Great rooms, clean, very good air-con, we had a garden view but you can still see the sea. We checked in an extra night early on arrival 4 nights in total over christmas. Views are amazing, I loved the...

So I checked into this hotel for 7 nights and the hotel is past all the shops and food so it's very quiet and relaxing if your not trying to be close to bars. The food was actually very good but definitely over priced and if you just go in town everything is 100 baht less. I would recommend booking...

This hotel was good value for money. We had a sea view room which had a lovely view, rooms are like little huts and are extremely basic (although we saw some of the more expensive ones looked nicer). Location: middle of nowhere really! We hired a scooter for 200 baht and drove to some view points (download maps.me app as...

Absolutely stunning location with great view! The colour of the water changed as per the whether, we were waking up to the best view in Koh Tao! It was a little far away from the main Sairee Beach but it took us 100baht and a 10min bike taxi to reach there!

I stupidly didn't check the tripadvisor reviews before booking this place, on the ferry ride over to Koh Tao the hotel was advertised, the pictures were glamorous and left me thinking this place would be heaven.... Sadly it wasn't the paradise I thought it was going to be. On arrival to the island there was no transfer vehicle to pick...

We were very excited to stay here as the pictures look idyllic and it states on the website that the hotel isn't too far from koh Tao town where it's busy. However, our stay was rather disappointing and I would not stay in this hotel again. Firstly, do not ignore all of the reviews, it is true, the hotel grounds...
