We found this hotel by driving past on our moped- do not be fooled by the grand entrance and the added stars on the board outside, it was horrendous!
The room was big but very very dated, the bed had no quilt or sheet to get under, just a throw over that was thin and uncomfortable. The bathroom had seen better days and i kept my flip flops on while showering!! The windows were just netting and so it was hard to sleep as it was so loud outside.
The pool area was quite nice but the pool was so warm it was like being in a bath.
On the upside if you are a lone traveller there are plenty of bugs and mosquitoes to keep you company!

Room Tip: Do not stay near the main road.

This resort comprises of a brand new reception and pool area and a lovely restaurant on the beach (which does the most amazing barbeque's). We were pleasently suprised when we arrived at the location.

The accomodation (bungalows) are not quite up to the same standard as the rest of the resort. They are of course perfectly fine and do the job intended and this is the kind of accomodation most travellers expect to see in thailand, especially if travelling on a budget.

We really enjoyed our stay here and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Koh Tao is in my opinion the nicest of the Thai islands, and the least touristy. I would definately recommend this resort to other budget travellers.

The only downside to our stay here (apart from me breaking my ankle...) was the noise at night from nearby clubs,which it made it almost impossible to sleep.

Stayed here for 3 weeks in a Pool side Villa. Seashell is located at Sairee Beach. I have through the years stayed at many different places at Sairee beach. Seashell is one of the more nicer places at Sairee if you like a pool, sunbeds and a nice reception. The Villas are nice and clean, BUT it is actually a double villa, 2 different villas/rooms in one building, and the villas are only seperated by a door of wood. So you can hear everything what happens in the other room/villa! And you also have to share the terrace outside the villa, and there are only one table and 2 chairs. But we were lucky, we only had someone living there for 2 nights in the 3 weeks we were there.. The service is nice, the rooms are cleaned every day. But the bed is VERY VERY hard, even for thai standard. We went to the supermarket and bought a picninc blanket to make the bed more soft.
If you want to dive I would recommend Seashell Divers, we have dived many times with them. I took my dive course there some years ago.
Overall Sheashell resort is nice, and maybe we will go back again. We often go to Koh Tao, but mostly we prefer a bungalow right at the beach, with no pool, no sunbeds, but only the look at Sairee beach

Rooms were big but old & the bathroom was shoddy! Good location & the restaurant did a good beach BBQ! The pool was far too hot - should be a cooler temp than outside! Payed a lot & wasn't worth it!
