THB1,500 gets you an aircon double room with hot water (weak) shower. I love Koh Tao so don't mind where I'm staying. I can understand some of the unhappy comments below but ultimately, this is a cheaper option on a bustling part of the island. It is advisable to wear mossie spray when you sleep as these are bamboo huts on stilts. If you're looking for a more rough & ready Thailand, then stay here. If you want luxury, keep walking.

The staff are a bit grumpy and said that we had to stay a minimum of 2 nights. However, with a ferry out the next day, we managed to talk them into letting us stay for one.

Room Tip: Always ask to look at the room before handing over any money. Check the aircon & the shower pres...

The rooms were mouldy and not cleaned well. The general standard was below what we expected from the booking site. There was an incredible small bathroom, with mouldy walls and a mouldy smell. There were also construction work going on from 7 am every morning. When we asked in the reception if we could change the room, they were rude and not helpful at all. They refused to help us, and claimed there was nothing wrong with anything in their rooms. There were also very loud sounds from the bullfrogs living under the bungalows, between midnight and 6am, so we couldn't sleep. We checked out after 3 days, even though we had payed for 5. The receptionist seemed mad because we chose to leave earlier! She was incredible rude - we've never experienced anything like it. DO NOT BOOK THIS HOTEL!!!!

The rooms were poor, there were hundreds of LOUD toads mating in the resort canals, the beds were hard, bugs and cockroaches, they overcharged us 200 baht per night compared to what we initially agreed on. Overall, we were not impressed.

In our room (cottage garden), there was mould in the bathroom walls, dirty windows, mirrors, walls, and the bathroom was so tiny that we almost had to sit on the toilet while showering. We asked to switch rooms the first day of our stay, but they said that "all rooms are same". We stayed for three nights (out of 5 as planned), but barely got any sleep because of noise, especially from a bullfrog-choir in under our cottage-it sounded like 10 cows were standing around our cottage-moaning all night. Then there were construction-workers in the cottage next door, hammering away from 07 am. As mentioned, we checked out and booked another hotel after 3 days. All in all - the experience was not pleasant, and I would advise everyone-especially those traveling with children from staying here.

We paid £28 a night to stay at AC resort (we ended up only staying for one night). The room was basic with unclean towels and bed sheets. Extremely overpriced, this room should of only cost £10 a night at most. Wouldn't recommend.

Good value for money. The entrance is amazing. The rooms are small hut like. Cleanliness is average. Very, very close to the Sairee beach. Pool is good fun, get a small ball and black some hand ball in the waters. Too many lady boys at the counters though

Room Tip: Its close to the beach, they have good snorkeling trips.

We stayed here for one night last week and quite frankly I wouldn't have stayed any more even if we had booked it!! The hotel is deceiving from the road as it looks inviting with stepping stones to the appartments, but don't let this fool you. We stayed in one of the AC apartment blocks which were fairly spacious but had no other positive elements. The bathroom was infested with fly's and ants - even though the room was 'cleaned' there was no attempt to kill the nest. Mosquitos came through the bathroom into the bedroom, as the bathroom door did not fit the frame. They also came through the gap under the room door. We must have killed at least 30 mosquitos before going to bed that night. Other smaller problems included; the curtains couldn't shut as they were broken, there were wires hanging out of broken light sockets and there was a nasty looking stray dog that sat outside the room at night and barked at you. Please read this review and learn from our experience, do not ruin your trip to koh tao in this rubbish resort. The other four nights we stayed here we were in big blue 2 which was much better (I'd also recommend checking out sairee cottages).
