We stayed here for 3 nights in Feb. We stayed in the ocean view room. The room is huge with an amazing view but that is the only good thing about it. Our room was not clean at all. The bathroom had paint all over the floor and the tube was dirty. Also you had to shower in the large heart shaped tube which was hard to get in and out of plus there was no curtain so the whole bathroom gets wet. Hot water was inconsistent. The hallways were really dark even during the day it kinda felt like we were in a scary movie. We didn't eat at the hotel because we read that the food was bad. Location is good. Less then 5 min walk to the pier and about 20mins to the main area in Sairee beach. The pool is really large and deep which is nice. I think if we were to go back to Koh Tao we would stay somewhere else.

Stayed for 2 nights in February 2014. Booked a beach bungalow but in hindsight I would book a room with a pool view on the main hotel building. The pool was excellent, as was the pool side bar. They are extending the hotel and the space around the beach bungalows is a bit of a building site and we got a whiff of the sewers every now and then. However, the building work will soon be complete and that isn't meant as a slant on the hotel. What do you expect when building a new extension to the hotel? Location wise it's good, a little further from Mae Had bars than I expected but it's less than 10 mins in a taxi/on a scooter. Beach access is really easy and only a 10 minute walk past Crystal Bar to the pier/port. Would stay here again if in Koh Tao.

Koh Tao Regal Resort

The beautiful island of Koh Tao is a veritable Paradise; however unfortunately we had to book here for three nights as the island was pretty much full while i waited for an apartment to become available. I can see why this was the only place with rooms left.

Apart from the stench of raw sewage and drainage (smells worse than downtown Barcelona in August) the uncompromisingly rude staff (and yes i know thai staff can be super chilled which takes a while to get used to).. where to start.. .

The stunning pools are full of trainee scuba divers (30 or 40 a day all day) attempting to put snorkels on and learn hand signals whilst bobbing about like lost manitees, thus you can't get into the pool to swim. The 'Regal' is a building site either side of the resort reaching 100db, diggers, concrete mixers, air compressors, all day, from breakfast till dusk and the piles of rubbish make it appear like an open tip along the lines of Jakarta at rush hour.

The hallways are pitch black and full of trips and bumps to catch you out. The breakfast (included) is beyond a joke. barely Toasted bread like concrete with a couple of miserable pale eggs or a bowl of muesli with a thimble of milk or a spoon full of yoghurt. Don't forget the 500bht deposit for a room card (which doesn't work)

The only vaguely good thing is that the bed is comfy and the air con worked, however i hear other clients complaining that their air con didn't work. Shame as Koh tao is paradise if you know where to look but nook early to avoid disappointment

Stay in a bungalow for a 5th the price and have a better time.

Room Tip: hmm, hard to recommend

Booked this hotel almost 2 months in advance. When we arrived they did not have our room, they gave it to someone else. We agreed to stay in another room for one night until they got our room free and ready for us. Well would be cleaner to sleep on the beach. Bed sheets were not changed bodily fluids were everywhere, there were also other stains. After calling the reception our bed sheets and pillows were replaced. Next day we had to remind them that we would like to move to the room we have booked and payed for. Our room had breakfast included but they forgot to give us coupons so we had to pay for our first breakfast, only after going back to the reception we were given coupons and they also reimbursed us for the amount we payed. They were not happy. WiFi slow and almost unable to connect to it.

Booked this hotel through Agoda it looked lovely, on arrival it was like driving into a building site, receptionist very rude, I asked to see the "Superior room" that I had booked as all I could hear from the reception was drilling and banging, when we were shown the room the bed had been laid on/slept in and towels were scattered across bed and the view looked like a building site/rubbish tip. I said I didn't want to stay in this room and wanted to move to another hotel but was informed by rude staff member that this was not possible until they spoke to Agoda! We agreed to pay for an upgraded room for one night and wanted to move the next day but still to this day I never received a refund! Also pool is dominated by diving schools all day. Not recommended!!!
