We really liked this 'resort' (although I wouldn't call it a resort). Our room was fantastic on the upper floor of a bungalow with a private view of the resort and glimpses of the beach area. It was quiet and the balcony was superb for relaxing and having breakfast (ask them to bring it up) and drinks. Buy mosquito coils to ease your comfort. The room wasn't mosquito proof (especially the big gaping holes in the walls of the bathroom) but it was very comfortable with a big firm mattress. There was a fridge for cold drinks. The staff were always friendly and really the setting sunset on the beach is to die for sipping a cocktail with your feet in the warm water whilst it sets on the horizon. The swimming totally amazing…very warm and shallow (great for families). The food menu & cooking could really use some western influence. We only ate breakfast here and the atmosphere at the restaurant is pretty sub standard compared to others on the beach. Our disappointment wasn't the resort; it was Koh Tao itself--it has been built up too quickly, too many hotels side-by-side with grey water being dumped into the beach area (not at the resort though). we won't return to Koh Tao but if we did, this would be the place we return.
