I'll start by summing up the review - for those who like to skim:
-GREAT staff (the best I've seen)
-Top notch rooms (especially the deluxe ones)
-Extremely high value/price ratio
-Pool is a bit small
-Not too convenient to walk back form town at night (rent a scooter!)
I'll start by admitting I fell in love with the place the moment we've reached it. It was so utterly amazing, that I proposed to my girlfriend on our first sunset there (I've been looking for the right place on Thailand, and this was it). The hotel manager captured my proposal on video, and helped me surprise my girlfriend with some other treats as well.
The staff is great, especially Jacob (the hotel manager). He was so nice, at times I thought I'm speaking with a friend, not a service provider. He helped us with many issues during the vacation that weren't hotel-related at all.
Our initial plan was to stay at Koh-Tao for 2-3 days, but after entering the hotel, and seeing the island - we stayed for a week. I must emphasis that the hotel's amazing deluxe room (with an extreme low price, considering its value) had a major weight regarding our decision to stay...
All in all, I highly recommend this place. I've seen other hotels in Koh-Tao (got many friends here), none of them was close to compete with Aminjirah. If you're a couple that looking for a romantic place to stay at, which is not far from the attractions - yet feels isolated, this is a no-brainer. Aminjirah is the place for you.
