The accommodation was rather basic, there was a fan rather than air con and the sheets felt oily on the bed as previously mentioned in another review?! The toilet door didn't close properly and overall the room was a little dated. It was set over looking a lovely beach and had a couple of restaurants nearby- but not many. We didn't dive so there wasn't much to do there apart from sunbathing. If I went to koh Tao again.. I'd stay elsewhere. The receptionist for bookings could be quite abrupt at times to which made us feel awkward!

My friend and I got our certificates for open water dive at Carabao with instructor Marco and dive master Guillaume and it was brilliant. I wasnt at ease with the concept at first, and on my second dive I had a moment of panic under water, and i must say it was controlled by my instructor with such professionalism that i had no problem returning in the minutes that followed. Marco was calm, patient and confident and made us both feel at ease and in good hands. The equipment was new and they make sure to give you the proper equipment suited for you. The training from the video to the last dive was well organized and informative. For someone that was nervous and unsure at the beginning, I cannot have asked for a better team, and im very grateful for the support! Merci Marco et Guillaume. Merci Carabao!

First of all I wanna thanks Marco, our instructor and Guillaume. Me and my friend took the open water course in french. From the beginning we feel in trust with the professionalism of Marco. He's really passionate about diving and that makes the difference.

It's a small school that really feels like a family. Small group so you can make most of it. The equipment was all mostly new. Few people complains about not wanting to study during vacation... But the information given was really interesting, and once in the water it was all worth it ! I 100% recommend Carabao.

Carabao diving school is a good one. The instructors are friendly, experienced and knowledgeable. All the safety stuff was well explained and the dive was amazing. Koh Tao really does have beautiful dive sites.

The accommodation linked to the dive school is less good. The rooms are basic and seemed clean. I don't know whether there is a specific problem with the water on the island but the water in the bathroom was an off-clear colour and the toilet was very stained. The bed sheets also seemed greasy? The hotel owner was only sporadically helpful when I had issues.

The bar next to Carabao is cool although it is situated on the quieter side of the Island with no real beach. Taxis to the livelier side of the island are around 100Bhat per person (400Bhat minimum).
