Fantastic location, right in the middle of Sairee Beach. Staff (front desk) appear friendly upon arrival but soon have faces like a slapped bum after you've paid your money!!!!! That aside our family room was FANTASTIC ....... Right on the front though so VERY noisy. Friends had a pool side room and that was just as bad!!!!!! Pool is lovely, clean and beds nice. Towels supplied and changed daily. We had a problem with mossies in the room but the manager came (she was lovely) and sprayed . The restaurant is superb too, Mr Jack is great!!!!!!

Boats to the Naguan island aren't as cheap as they used to be and you have to pay 100 baht to get on!!!!!! Better off getting a few of you together and taking a long boat out for the day. 9 of us went and paid 400 baht each. . . . .lots more entertainment on the beaches now. All to do with fire!!!!!! No more sleepy koh toa where the electric goes off for half the night!!!!!!!

Pier gets stupidly busy too.... Try to get the earlier boats as a bit cooler but still is a nightmare. If you contact sairee cottage beforehand they will pick you up for free. They usually stand by the 7/11.

Hi Folks,

I am writing this review at 6:30am while still at the hotel.

To management - people, you can't have a bloody cockerel in a bloody hotel !!!!!!!!!!!! This damn thing is driving me bananas. Crowing every 15 - 30 seconds.

Don't get me wrong, I am staying at the poolside rooms and they are nice, modern and very clean. They are well looked after and the staff are very good.

But, I wouldn't recommend this hotel if you want a nice, quiet, relaxing holiday with any sleep. This cockerel crows all day long from very early in the morning and spoils what would otherwise be a very nice place to stay. If this doesn't bother you then you will definitely like the poolside rooms.

Room Tip: bring ear plugs (or a hachet and bbq)

As a Thai, I think the food here is very tasty and they cook Thai menus nicely. We stayed in the new building and our room was by the pool. The staff are very helpful and friendly though many of them couldn't speak Thai but English. There are few dogs in the resort and two of them love to sleep by the pool at night. the resort is right by Sairee beach and we really enjoyed the amazing sunset moment at the restaurant.

Room Tip: Rooms in the new building have gap under the roof, so you can hear everything from your neighbors.

Although we initially booked one of the bungalows near the road, we decided to move to a pool side room after one night of bad sleep due to the noise from the street. The pool side rooms are definitely more comfortable and updated and recommended to stay. The location itself is very good, short walk to the beach, bars and restaurants.

Room Tip: Would recommend the pool side rooms.

We were walking up and down looking for somewhere for ages and stumbled across this place. They had a room so we agreed to have it - went to the reception to pay and was then told there was a 2000baht deposit on a room where there was nothing to break! The room itself was one of the cheap bungalows which actually look like a garden shed! Gaps between floor panels, towel for a duvet? And a terrible shower! Concrete is probably softer than the bed as well! Anyway all in all if you want a cheap dump for a night then this is the place

We went to Koh Tao in march, we knew that is well known for diving sites but we didn't expect such poor beaches as Mae Haad or Sairee beach. Sairee cottage is a resort on the beach, that is few meters wide with low tide and non.existent with high tide. The prices are more expensive than in others Thai islands and the rules that we found there we never found enywhere else in Thailand. Advanced payment for the bungalow, 2000 bath deposit for eventual damages in the room and last but not least 5% commission for the credit cards payment. The bungalow was ok but the swimmiing pool wasn't available and there everything is done and focused on diving trips.
The restaurant directly on the narrow beach was good but we stayed in Koh Tao less than planned and went back to Koh Phangan where the range of attractions is wider and for all kind of customers.
