Most of the other reviews sum this place up well, but I thought I would just add one, as I left View point "resort" after a 3 night stay feeling completely and utterly taken for a ride.
As the other reviews state, you have a 300m trek from the beach along a pier, through another restaurant, along 2 other small beaches and up 70 steps to the 'V Cottages' There is no hot water ,no air con, very little light, not even a chair to sit on and ZERO service!
After 2 nights we had to walk down and request some clean towels and toilet paper. When I enquired about hot water I was dismissed with a snort! We left laundry in and after 3 days it was finally returned to us still not done, with the excuse that there was no electricity!
It was the most frustrating place I have ever stayed, granted the views are amazing and the lay out of the accommodation is nice, but the unbelievably bad service and lack of amenities left me feeling completely ripped off.
Our final night in Koh Tao we stayed down near the pier in a clean air con, hot water bungalow in for a fraction of the price.
Don't waste your energy or time going to this "resort"
