AC Resort is centrally localted at the main beach of Koh Tao - it operates several bungalows ranging from fan to A/C situated in a green, tropical environment. The resort futures a pool, a restaurant, a bar and discounted rooms in case you book dive lessons with one of the local schools (Phoenix divers - highly recommended).

The central location makes it a perfect homebase for diving, eating, accessing the beach and exploring the island. So far, so perfect. Unfortunately the overweight guy at the reception is so unfriendly that he not only deserves to be mentioned here but that it also leaves you sometimes just speechless. He might have had a bad day or whatever kind of problems, but in this case he had the same problems several times with different people.

The attached restaurant and bar overlooking the beach offer stunning views at sunset and reasonable food at decent prices - the service especially in the restaurant is totally dependent of your waiter. Some are just too busy chatting that they just can't take your order within 15 min while others will be fast and friendly.

The second thing to point out is the totally disatrous state in which the bathrooms of some of the fan-bungalows are. Mouldy walls, uncleaned, no real ventilation, no flush toilets - we are surely not picky but here a stroke of work wasn't done in years. If you don't believe it just have a look by by yourself. During one weeks we only got new towels after asking for them at the reception, the rooms weren't cleaned in this period.

Long story short told this resort offers great value for your money and we would have given the full rating but the above mentioned points are so prominent, that they are just not acceptable.

I am absolutely staggered by the rudeness with which I was treated at this place. They drew us in with the sell that all the rooms had free WIFI (which we needed for work purposes), but we had to stay for a minimum of 2 nights, which had to pay in advance including a 300Baht deposit. The WIFI barely worked even at the front desk, and when my wife politely asked the front desk person to help he was extremely rude to her. I then told them that we wanted to leave since they were unable to hold up their end of the deal, and they refused and told me to 'f**k off' and were incredibly insulting towards us both. And all this from a polite inquiry as to why the internet service we were promised with our rooms wasn't working.

This place actually looks ok on the surface - great location, and the rooms aren't too bad (though 500 Baht for a sweltering insect infested bungalow is a little steep by most people's estimation). However, the incredible rudeness of the front desk person here was frankly disgusting. His attitude was the worst I've ever come across in all my travels around the world, and I couldn't warn people off staying here enough. I agree with everyone else who has given this place terrible reviews - they simply shouldn't be allowed to be in business.

I say it again - the people here were as rude to me as anyone has ever been in my whole life. Stay here only if you want to give your money to money grabbing, honourless, rude and horrible people.

Room Tip: Just don't.

Cons: Extremely loud frogs at night, rude front desk staff, and ac did not work in my room. Pros: good food at the restaurant, nice location, decent price (if the ac had worked, otherwise it was overpriced).
I would not stay here again based on the service alone.

Amazing accommodations and great location! There are two style of rooms, the older "bungalows" and the newer remodeled versions. If you can, obviously get the newer ones, they're great. The rooms and bathrooms are modern, they come with a big front porch and the places are tucked back from the street so you get privacy. The staff are not the friendliest but then again I wasn't trying to make best friends with 'em. If you're looking for a good room at a good price, bang! You got it.
