“Great Location, Bargain!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

Stayed here for around a week in December. Had a basic Fan room, no hot water, but in Thailand, that's not really an issue!

Lovely location, right on the beach, the bungelows are set in lovely grounds, right on the beach and near to all local amenities. I was diving wity Budda View Dive school (next door) and for me this was a perfect location. The restaurant served lovely food at a decent price, and the friendly service and happy staff was always nice to see. Manager "Oi" was very nice and offered good advice in organising my Lomprayah sea cat trip onwards to Ko Samui.

I'll be back on Ko Tao soon to live but would most certainly stay here again.

Thanks for the lovely stay.

We had a horrible stay here. We booked for 2 days because we wanted to get some rest normally we book for one and if its good than we book some more. Rooms were not that clean specially the shower/toilet. The second night We moved to another room near the road still noisy but cleaner.
The problems started on check out the first day we rented two bikes the next morning one had a flat tire. The manager demanded that we pay for it she wanted 600 bath just for that. She claimed that it was not fixable. I told here that it was to much just for that and that it was easy to fix. At that moment the girl from the reception joined the discussion and started to yell at me and my wife. I stayed calm but she continued. This was new for me such rude mentality is not what i expect from any hotel staff. I complained about it to the manager who was next to me she did not do anything about it, payed the fine and left.
We left that evening for Koh phi phi the next day my wife found out that she forgot her watch, We let a Thai from our new hotel call to the resort, after a discussion over more than 5 minutes the said not to have found anything.
This was the wurst stay in Thailand for us, however generally we had only good experiences with the hotel staff during our stay, only not this one.

Comfortable accommodation located next to the Chalok Bay beach and near several dive centres. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant offers a good range of traditional Thai food at a reasonable price, however, some of the serving staff have limited English. Free wifi is available and can be reached in the rooms. I stayed for a week and had a very relaxing time and would go back again.

Room Tip: I opted for the superior suite with air conditioning.

We had a good experience at this hotel and found the beach huts were good value for money. The location of this hotel is perfect if you want to get away from the main Sairee beach, but still had decent bars and restaurants. Perfect place to stay and complete a PADI course.

+ Clean room, nice deco, fridge, big balcony, modern toilet, location, good beds.
- Very noisy, first floor right at the 711 junction, hot shower didn't work; had to ask repeatedly and wait til the next day to get it fixed, some of the staff if not all were rude, very high extra cost for aircon (600b, dlx room without 900b).

So, ok for the price but don't take a room next door to 7/11 unless you like noise at night.

Room Tip: don't take a room next door to 7/11 junction.

Me and my partner spent two nights at the Tropicana Resort at the end of August. We didn't have a booking and as it was a bit late in the day we were in a bit of a rush looking for accommodation. There were only two type of room available, basic - cold shower, small fan and non flushing toilet, or deluxe - hot water, a flushing toilet and a ceiling fan. We chose the later, for which we were asked to pay in advance. The room was ok, very basic but clean. What we didn't notice until we had already paid is that the resort is located next to a road and most of the rooms have either the door or the balcony facing on that direction. The road has traffic all day and night long and the noise bounces of the hill on the other side you could as well be sleeping next to a truck garage. We asked to be moved but we were told they didn't have any other room available. If I had to go back I would definitely stay elsewhere.

The rooms are little bit old fashioned but ok. The cheapest rooms do not include warm water shower an toilet flush. The deluxe double room was bigger and included warm water shower and a working toilet. There was also a TV and DVD player in the room. You can borrow DVDs foe free. The location on koh tao is in my opionion great. You can reach all you need within a few steps including a beach. The value you get for the price is good!
