I stayed for four days and three nights in the beginning of February. There was a free pick-up service from the pier which was good but you should be ready for a wild off-road ride. It's just short enough not to be scary.
The hotel seems pretty isolated but once we looked around Saree Beach, we were just happy and relieved to stay at the Haad Tien Resort.
The trees on the beach were just so charming and unique.
You probably think the Cottage (where we stayed) was small,(a bungalow style bedroom with a toilet and shower) but if you spend most of your time on the beach, it's just adequate accommodation.
The food at restaurant was good, as was the service and general atmosphere. The seafood BBQ was a big disappointment but every other dish I ordered was very nice especially the Thai dishes.
Construction of the swimming pool was not complete and didn't look like it will be ready anytime soon. However it didn't bother us much with noise.
This could be personal but be prepared for mosquitoes. I always attract them wherever I go. I applied a lot of mosquito repellent at breakfast and dinner in the restaurant (it's an open air set-up). It wasn't such a problem during the daytime though.
The free shuttle to pier was handy. The receptionist was helpful. The other staff were friendly as well.
I rented a sea kayak and it was worth it to paddle around.
If I go back to Koh Tao, I will stay in the Haad Tien Resort again.
