We stayed here for 3 days and liked it. Our catamaran boat trip to Ko Tao was horrible and we definitely needed to rest, but the staff was very friendly and gave us a warm welcome. The hotel is medium-sized so big enough to offer various good facilities like a good dining area and a big and a beautiful swimming pool. Since it is situated in a remote location, multiple shuttle services to and from the main village are offered per day. It is difficult to reach the hotel by motorbike since the roads are pretty steep at some points. From the open-air dining area, you have a great view on the bay, and the restaurant offers a good menu (I loved the green curry). It is possible to walk down to the bay and swim or snorkel there.
This hotel is very nice if you like a quiet and remote area. However if you like to be in the middle of everything try another place situated more centrally, for instance in the village.
+: good spacious rooms with large balcony, nice view on the bay (from room 203), friendly staff, free shuttle service, good restaurant, beautiful and large pool.
-: remote location.
Tips: try the green curry and the masaman curry from the restaurant, book a room with a view on the bay and arrange for pick-up at your arrival. For the boat-trip to Ko Tao, bring ample motion-sickness pills.
