Good value for money but unhelpful staff
Reviewed 9 Oct 2017via mobile
The room was clean, comfortable and great value. Pool just outside the room. 1 minute walk to the beach and 5 minute walk to shops and 7/11. The bed was nice and firm, clan towels were provided.

The staff were unfriendly upon arrival and then when we spoke to them about booking a longtail boat, they didn't want to know! Luckily you do not have to pass reception to get to the room so we didn't see then other than check-in and check-out.

There is no shade around the pool from 9am until sunset so be prepared to wear a t-shirt in the pool as the sun was unbearable.

No hot water in the room - cold showers!

We were pleased with the room and would probably book again.

Best thing for us was how comfortable the beds are, we were coming from 2 weeks of bad mattresses and this was heaven. The rooms are simple and clean, very basic but comfortable and spacious. We were right in front of the pool and a few meters away from the beach.
And yes the furniture is dark and old, we have seen them all over Thailand, that wood is part of the charm, I don't know how people can complain about that...

Booked here for one night and ended up staying for three. That should speak for itself.

Don't expect luxury, remember your price paid! Rooms are basic, shower and sink tap is cold water only. Housekeeping was sporadic.
Location is great and the restaurant is sat affront a wonderful looking bay with pretty sandbanks and calm clear waters (bit silty at low tide). They really don't sell the view and it's really quite a lovely view for breakfast and lunch!
Swimming pool is small but perfectly formed. Very clean pool which is always a bonus!
My bed was fairly comfy and the ceiling fan kept me cool in the humid evenings...

All in all this place was great value for money. I didn't expect the ritz acclimation and for what I paid I was very happy. Wifi was ok and local shops not too far.

If your looking for a quiet, cheaper stay with no frills then this is definitely a great little gem!! I would recommend it...

Simple but clean rooms for a good price. No fridge or safe in the rooms. Our room was quite high and steps up there tricky (especially with a toddler) but had a nice sea view. There was a pool unfortunately the water was quite warm, there was no shadow and you have to watch your feet as you can easily burn them on the stones surrounding the pool. Staff was nice though and we also booked spontaneously a snorkling trip with them which worked well. The restaurant we tried only once, nice view over the bay but too expensive for so tiny portions and food was not even tasty. We then used to go to the Sandwich Lady a bit behind the 7-11 or tiny restaurants further up the street (direction Mae Haad). Chalok Baan Beach looked nice but water was dirty and greenish (algees?) so we went to Shark Bay and Freedom Beach for swimming/snorkeling instead.

Room tip: Rooms laying higher have a nice view but stairs a challenging

The good things first: This is a really great place to stay on Koh Tao. You get bis rooms for small money.
But, they are really unfriendly and quite often you have the feeling they just do not want or do not need your money.
For example, we wanted to rent a scooter. We arrived at 6:05 p.m. and although they were still there at the reception, they just told us that scooter rental is only until 6 p.m.
We were guests at their hotel and still they refused to offer us this service because of 5 minutes.

Good value for money! They showed us their bungalow rooms with the view of the ocean and their hotel rooms in the garden area and let us chose where we preferred to stay, the bungalow rooms were quite a trek up lots of stairs with many trees blocking the view so we opted for a hotel room in the garden area with and amazing bright blue swimming pool! We rented a moped from the hotel, no scam and very good price. There is a restaurant however we didn't really eat there because there were cheaper places with more options not far down the road.

Room tip: Ask at reception for available rooms when you arrive, we asked for a room closer to the swimming pool and they gave it to us.
