Reviewed 22 February 2014

We rent a few rooms in the two-storey building. The buildings are located in a wide garden area, behind the road. Upstairs rooms have one bid bed, downstairs two beds. Value for money is good, as you can get to the beach in less than one minute. Beds are a bit hard and only cold water was provided. It's quite clean. The restaurant is a bit expensive but have many choices stretching along the bay.

Room Tip: Any room is good, some have air condition but actually we didn't need it as it was cool in the n...

simply put: overpriced, rude staff, disgusting rooms, and worst side if the island. also the beds feel like they're made of wood. we moved after 3 days and it was the best choice we made. the only thing good to say is that the massage women near the lobby are great.

This was the worst accommodation experience we had in Thailand. Firstly the staff are rude and unhelpful. Secondly the room was awful. No automatic cleaning of the rooms, missing bar fridge, no a/c and worst of all the beds were extremely uncomfortable. The only redeeming factor was the hot water but for the price its not worth it. One day we locked our key in the room and there was no one at reception to help us!

Plenty of better places in Koh Tao to stay at.

My review is for the seaside restaurant at JP resort. I never really like pizza in Asia but that one was great. Thin crust, tasty (vegetarian for 240b) ! Perfect for one person. The staff was lovely. Good service, good place beside the beach. Wood everywhere in resto. Adorable place.

I ended up discovering JP's as I was driving past. I popped in for a bite to eat and really enjoyed the excellent food , served with a smile from the great Burmese staff.

I ended up coming back every day for the next week to have my usual Mango Shake and the various dishes.

I didn't see much of JP's resort itself, as its set back in the Jungle more, but the restaurant is right on the beach and is a great place to chill out and relax. Also JP's has the fastest Wi Fi on Ko Tao, so its a great place to come, spend some money, enjoy some great food whilst uploading my pics and checking FB, emails etc.

I'll certainly be back here soon :)

We have been travelling around asia for 2 months now and this place was not one of our best stays. The beds are quite hard and the shower was cold. The staff were not too friendly but helped us out get our bearing and find the tour locations. Sea and beach is nearby with a good bar on the beach

We stayed here on a budget whilst travelling, we booked a seaview bungalow for 500B. We didn't mind the hike up to the room as it was worth it for the view.
Bed and room was clean. No hot water with our budget or a toilet flush. Just a bucket of water to flush all down. Not a huge problem it was just the smell that came with it that was horrendous.
Ate one evening meal, half the staff are polite whilst others can be v rude. We practically got thrown out free our meal.
Was excited to check out.
