Reviewed 28 February 2009

Stayed here for 7 nights in luxury room it was clean, spacious & comfortable. All staff were friendly, kind & helpful. Beach bar is great, stays open till last person has left weather it be 8pm or 5am. Food was great with plenty of choice. Set in peaceful surroundings with the beach at your door step. Great snorkling in crystal clear waters. Hole experience was fantastic would highly recommend. Love this place so much heading back in may 09. Gold coast Australia

Reviewed 7 February 2009

We are posting this hotel review here, because we were unable to post it elsewhere.

We stayed at Ko Tao Coral View Resort from Jan. 14-19, 2009. Overall, had a GREAT time!!! The resort is small and mostly family- and friend-run, and right next to the sea in the Gulf of Thailand. The rooms were exactly as described, very basic, but entirely adequate for the price. We had no surprises in that regard. We stayed in Luxury Room 21, steps from the sea, but there are also bungalows scattered up the hill.

The most positive aspect of Coral View was the quiet location, about 2-3 km from town, and a challenging but hardly impossible walk for fit people, up and down steep hills. Taxi ride with staff if you are in a hurry, was about 100 THB one-way, and they would often arrange to scoop us up in town to bring us back, if we wished (we emailed them re: our arrival time and they were there at the pier to pick us up). There is plenty to do and see and eat and drink in town - you are not isolated or "stuck" at Coral View by any stretch.

I cannot say enough positive about Kao and Daeng (owners/operators) and their staff. All of the staff were absolutely FANTASTIC, friendly, kind, helpful, interesting, albeit with the only exception of a seemingly grumpy young woman in the reception/restaurant area who couldn't muster a smile no matter what the circumstance and appeared to be bothered/ put out whenever we requested to access the internet .

Food at Coral View was inexpensive and delicious. Drinks also were very resonable and we enjoyed happy hour with Kao and his staff at the beach bar, which operated from about 6 pm until 1100. If you want to mix it up a little, there is a resort a few feet down the beach with a full service restaurant and bar. Also very good.

We snorkelled off the beach, and while the coral itself has suffered, it is making efforts to come back. There is a great variety of smaller fish just within the rocks and we were even able to snorkel with a small black-tipped reef shark, in this same spot. While we do not dive, the dive operators at Coral View seemed busy much of the day, taking people out, even one or two at a time, at minimal cost, to my understanding. Everyone seemed very pleased with their dives upon returning, especially given Coral View's proximity to some prime sites.

If you are looking for basic, quiet , clean,,very reasonably priced accomodations,with courteous ,friendly service we highly recommend Coral View.
