“Great staff & good location”
Reviewed 19 August 2012

I stayed here for one night only. Ko Tao is a scuba diving destination of Thailand. The hotel staff were very friendly and hospitable. We could not do our breakfast as we had to leave early for the diving session, once we came back we asked them if we can get our breakfast in the lunch time and to my surprise they served us that. A very warm gesture by the hotel staff and we never had any problem during our stay.

The location is great, near the beach and shopping street, clubs, etc.

We arrived on Koh Tao and strugged to find a room anywhere with most hotels fully booked or changing at least 2000 baht (double our budget!). Asia divers had 1 room left a fan twin for 800 baht and we took it gladly. The room was newly decorated and had a balcony overlooking the pool. It was cleaned daily which seems somewhat a rarity in Thailand.
It was only 2 mins walk to the main bar/restaurant/beach area which was fine by us as it meant the room was always quiet. There are places to eat and drink closer but we always went to the beachfront.
To be honest the room was too hot despite the new rotating fan but we found having a cold shower before getting into bed helped to cool us down. Having a pool was a nice touch, small but lovely to cool off.
We never ate at the bar or had much to do with the staff but everyone seemed helpful enough and we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Get and AC room, you really need it!

We got the room as soon as we landed from the boat having not booked before arrival; driven straight to the resort which is on the main hub beach of the island. only a 5 minute walk from waterfront to the hotel. However there were no a/c rooms left; i wasn't hugely fussed but it was just unbearable - no breeze and only one small fan. we also got bitten alive as we backed onto the treeline!

Staff were bearable but service at the restaurant was poor. Good for divers and people just looking for a base.

Somewhat overpriced. Had a superior AC room which was ok. For the price you would expect a room security safe for belongings. The room was somewhat run down.

The main thing you really notice is the staff just don't smile. They seem to just be after your cash and don't care about showing any hospitality in return.

Finding another place to stay is recommended, especially for the price they charge here. For the money you pay here you could stay at Regal hotel which is plush and new and right on the water.

We stayed here for a week and would highly recommend it to any travelers visiting Koh Tao. We did the 3 day PADI open water diving course with our excellent instructor Claude. With a 1-3 instructor to student ratio in our class we received close instruction and always felt completely safe. Claude was professional and entertaining; a truly superb instructor.
The rooms were also quite clean and had daily towel and sheet changes with free water bottles. The location was great also, just a 10 minute walk to the beach our room was far enough away from the loud parties to sleep well, yet close enough that they we could easily join them if we pleased. Also has a great pool to lounge by.
Also great are the line up of authentic Thai restaurants on the same street as the resort.
Thumbs up all around!

We only stayed here for the pool. Been to koh Tao a few times now and always stayed different places. We paid 1000 baht and got a room with a/c and tv and warm water for this price I would expect a fridge too.

We only stayed here due to the pool and it was nice to slip in and cool off when it got too hot. Yes the divers do use it but not for prolonged times and to be honest this didn't bother us. We didn't dive with them so can't comment on the dive school here. Although the staff at the hotel reception were rude and not really helpful or even bothered when we made enquiries about the room. Like someone else said on here they are used to the westerner coming to koh Tao and spending money that they have lost their hospitality shame really.

Location is good although there are better pool saves this place otherwise a little on the expensive side

Reviewed 19 April 2012

We were hounded at Koh Phangan port while waiting to depart to Koh Tao to book a room at Asia Divers Resort by one of their staff, eventually we gave in and booked a standard fan room for 800baht as we are on a tight budget. The nice thing was that we got free transfer from the pier in Koh Tao to the hotel (although we had to call them when we got there because we couldn't find the taxi). At first the room looks fine, its spacious with a big bed but then you see the pillows are hard (leather?) pillows and there is no duvet only old blanket/towels things are supplied. The room was extremely hot and the fan didnt really help! The shower was cold, and the whole room had a mouldy smell.. There was a nice pool to cool off in but everytime i was in there, there was a group of divers practising in the pool so you have to kind of paddle in the shallow end and there seems to be a lot of mosquitoes around the pool area- very annoying! Also the pool closes at 7pm. After two nights we changed to an air con room as the heat was unbearable. The room also had a old musty smell although it was abit better than the one before. Pillows were nice and soft, duvet supplied, desk, tv (wasnt tuned in properly) and fridge and of course the aircon- which was abit old but still did the job. The bathroom smelt mouldy and the shower was attached to the wall in such a way that it sprayed you directly in the face(horizontally) but at least it was hot! The toilet also leaked abit. It was also situated next to a very noisy road! You have to keep the bathroom door closed during the night to try to keep out the noise. On the upside, we had a nice ground floor balcony. Also the restaurant was nice for breakfast with reasonable prices, and the lady at reception was really friendly and nice to us and you get a free taxi back to the pier. The location is good as its close to sairee beach and all the action. Wifi was free- but didnt always work! Overall i think this resort is okay for a few nights, I wouldn't really recommend it but I didnt seem to find much better around sairee beach area for this price.
