We had 3 nights at la cigale and it wasn't long enough we loved it here the location is ideal and the garden villa is really tremendous. Andre and nun are the best two hosts can't do enough for you. We will without a doubt be going back and book for longer next time we can't rate la cigale high enough

Absolutely loved La Cigale. Wish we were staying longer. Andre the owner alone is reason enough to stay there, he is so nice and so helpful. From the moment you arrive off the ferry you have a free taxi ride to the bungalows. That is really nice because you are bombarded by taxis drivers the second the ferry lands which is only twice a day so they are there and ready.
We stayed in the family bungalow. Patio with a hammock, large bed in a main room and bathroom and shower outside (enclosed and covered). No bug problems. I only had to use the fly swatter once, and only cause i really wanted to try it.
We had our bags taken to our room and greeted with a coconut juice welcome drink. Theres a phone in the room that calls Andre directly for any questions and needs. We ordered food to the room one night, well he ordered for us which was awesome.
The only negative is it is a bit of a walk to the town/beach. Theres a short cut through Koh Tao cabanas to get to the beach but still a decent walk on the road to get there. Since we were only staying a few days we did not get a motorbike, also we are scared to drive one. But if you are staying longer I would recommend getting one. Its nice to have to explore the island anyways. But I would definitely need to feel comfortable driving one before driving there, the roads are very steep.
I loved our stay there and loved Koh tao, way better than the touristy Ko Samui. While you are still near the major beach with all the nightlife, you are on the far end so it still feels very private.
Thanks Andre! It was the perfect end to our honeymoon

We had a wonderful holidays at La Cigale. We stayed for 5 nights at the family villa. We were warmly welcomed with fresh coconuts and tropical fruits :)

The villa was very comfortable with an amazing design and beautiful view. Rooms were large enough and very cozy. Funiture was in very-very good condition, large TV with many channels, air condition, free wi-fi, aipod station.

Great locaion - 5 minutes walk to the Sairee beach and 7-10 - to main walking streets with restaurants, bars, massage salons and other intertainment stuff.

We would recommend to stay at La Cigale.

Room Tip: We recommend the Family villa.

We loved our stay in La Cigale, the room was gorgeous with a great view and veranda with a hammock, and the outside bathroom felt like you were showering in a waterfall (however this includes the creepy crawlies!). The owner Andre was more than helpful for anything we needed. The only downside to staying here is that it's a short walk through the jungle to the beach and you can't use any of the sun lounges as they belong to other hotels and although we were told they will let you use them if you are buying beverages, in fact no one would let us do this. If you are happy laying on the sand then fine but perhaps if the hotel invested in some sun lounge space on the beach this would make it even better. However, I would still recommend staying here if that doesn't bother you.

We stayed here during mid September,2012 for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. Cigale was not our primary option for accommodation, however it clearly exceeded our expectations.
The villas have been so well designed that it blends seamlessly with the hilly landscape, bringing one very close to nature.

We would really like to thank Andre for his lovely hospitality and helpful suggestions towards making the most of our stay in Koh Tao. We would strongly recommend La Cigale to the ones who like to take the road less travelled and experience something amazing.
