Reading the other reviews and you would guess like every hotel you stay in, The Aminjirah has it pros and cons. We stayed for 7 nights so it gave us a chance to see how the hotel ran during this time, most guest it seems stay for 2/3 nights then move on (Island hoping). The rooms were comfortable with great views out across the South China Sea which are best seen at sunset. The pool area is a great place to relax. Food wise, the breakfast is more catered towards the Western taste, other meals were ok. The staff were attentive as nothing was to much trouble to sort out. Yes the walk into Sairee was a bit of a trek if you did not take a taxi, but found that if you walk along the beach is was a very pleasant way to get to the town. There is a great little snorkelling site about 15 minute walk from the resort at the Dusit Buncha resort, lots of sealife, but watch out for the sharp rocks.
If you do take a taxi from Sairee it's a fixed price, typically 400 baht per ride, whether for one or more people. This is typically Thailand, unless you walk or hire a moped, this is the only way around. Some great sunsets on Sairee beach it's a must (Fizz beach bar), great food at the The Gallery (thai food with a twist). All in all a good first experience of Ko Tao and of The Aminjirah.
