“all about money”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Such a commercial place: the most unfriendly staff i have ever seen ( and i m not talking about receptiin only, fhe worse is the restaurant), average rooms, and the worse is that they probably dont care at all about this review cause they are always full. Seems like not many good option on the island and this place has a great location. And food is quite good in the restaurant. But my god, dont go there to make friends, u will regularly be reminded to pay ur room on time by a : YOU PAY NOW OR YOU GO, and dont ask if u can leave ur stuff for an extra hour (check out at 11 and most of diving trip finish around 12.30) cause the answer will be No, just a no, no looking at u, no trying to accomodate, just a big No. And if u want sthg in the restaurant, try not to disturb the sleeping staff cause they dont like it. But it s worth noting that it s one of only places where u can actually sleep well at night cause no party there.

We were planning to stay here even after reading some variation in experiences. We arrived today at the reception and we were received in such a horrible manner that we already felt like leaving. My wife decided she wanted to see the rooms but she came back quite quickly because they were not clean, really small and kind of pricy. So we did NOT end up staying here and took a room in the nearby Wind Beach Resort, better value for money and much friendlier reception..

One of the better value places on the island. 800 baht for a double bed bungalow with bathroom. The BBQ food is very nice at the restaurant, and when compared with England, at a very good price, although relative to Thailand, very expensive. It's in a quieter spot on Sairee, which is a welcome break from the burgeoning teen party scene, but closer to the beach it's still fairly intolerably noisy. Overall, darn good for the island.

In March 2014 I booked a bungalow for 600B (2 nights), just to make sure I had a place to sleep when I arrived at Sairee Beach. Unfortunately it was quite a big mistake for the price I payed. First of all I want to say i only can speak for the bungalow I stayed in. Perhaps the more expensive bungalows are from a better quality. The 600B bungalow was very small, smelly, dirty en full of bugs. The furniture is overdated and could use an upgrade. Besides of the fact that there was barely water coming out of the sink, it was also leaking. There was cold water and ants walking all over the place. Wifi wasn't working at all in the bungalows, only in the restaurant. The lady at the reception was very rude and if there was coming words out of her mouth, looking me in the eyes costed to much energy I think. The male receptionist the next day was much friendlier though.

The resort was also in a bad condition. Just a rough sand pad leading to a beautiful(!!!!) beach. After two long days I moved next door, to Wind Beach Resort. Rooms for the same prices, same beach, much higher quality (service, swinmingpool, wifi everywhere, free beachtowels, better restaurant, pooltable)

We stayed here December 2013, the prices were very over priced and the young lady receptionist (maybe owner not too sure) was vey rude, upon entering our room stunk... we discovered that the open air bin still had all the dirty toilet paper from the previous guests so our room stunk of poo and urine, we were polite in asking them to fix this... expecting them to be apologetic they were in fact very rude and acted like we were putting them so out of their way. For the price you pay here you expect to have wifi access in the rooms, but you are only able to access wifi down at the restaurant. We were budget travellers and very easy to please but we stayed in much nicer places for a fraction of the price.

We booked blue wind through the recommendation of lonely planet and wouldn't stay there again. There are much nicer places to stay on Sairee beach!
The huts are very basic and dark. Beds are okay but always smelt a bit damp. Bathrooms are not nice, toilet is one that requires a bucket flush and no toilet paper to be put down it. This isn't an issue for us, but the hut wasn't cleaned the whole time we were there meaning the bathroom bin wasn't emptied.
The door lock is also just a padlock that i think could easily be picked or broken. Not very impressed!
Staff were also uninterested and a bit rude when we asked them any questions.
That being said, the bakery is a great spot to hang out! The food was always good and cheap and it has a lovely great chilled out atmosphere right on the beach.
The shambhala yoga class was also amazing, really chilled and great instructors who can cater the class to any level. If we were in Koh Tao, we'd definitely come to another yoga class and spend time at the bakery, but we'll be staying elsewhere.
