“Fantastic place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

Wasn't sure if I wanted to try diving but staying here totally changed my mind, hotel and diving staff are all very friendly and helpful, felt so at home!! Rooms were great and serviced daily. Ideal location as well 5 mins to bars so it's quiet at night if your up for an early morning dive! will be back to this resort!

We took the "comfort" fan room, which we got for 800 baht a night (no breakfast) since we were diving with the Asia Divers (100 Baht/night discount). The comfort room is on the third floor of a building a little set away from the street, which can be noisy, so it was a fairly quiet. We checked out the cheaper fan room (600/night), which were quiet close to the street, on the main floor, and older and went with the comfort room for the slightly higher price. The beds are very firm and the pillows are hard as rock (they are actually made of a firm plastic), but the bed was quite large and the room was cleaned every day. The fan rooms do not include hot water, but the cold shower wasn't too bad. You should note that we chose the fan room because we were on the island during the relatively cooler period, but there are rooms with A/C and hot water for around 1200/night. We found the fan adequate day and night, but we were lucky we had an extra flat sheet and pillows which we brought with us.

Two small bottles of water are provided a day, and the television is limited, but there are channels in English (lots of movies and Discovery channel). The balcony is fairly spacious.

Wifi was touch and go in the room, but it worked relatively well in reception.

We didn't have the food at the hotel, but there are plenty of economical options just outside of the hotel. Try the little bakery just right when you exit the hotel and on the left side of the street - the sausage rolls, pasties and sandwiches are out of this world. The Orange shop has a little food stall where you can get a hearty pad Thai, stirfry with rice and a few other dishes for 40-50 baht.

There is a nice pool, but we didn't use it. The bar is good and economical and full of friendly divers!

The staff at the hotel are not friendly at all, just as the reviews said; in fact, they seem to make an effort to make clients uncomfortable and unwelcome. However, the people at the dive shop made up for this: everyone at Asia Divers was friendly, funny and warm and I would dive with them again anytime.

Ask for room 47, which is the furthest down the hall so you don't have neighbours on one side and more of a breeze, and it is not facing the street so the room is quieter. The only wild card will be neighbours - if you have noisy neighbours (we did the first night), earplugs will be a great help.

Room Tip: If you get a fan comfort room, ask for a room not facing the street and at the very end (corner) so...

I've lived in Thailand for a bit now and I've never come across staff as rude as they are here. The rooms stink, the fan must have been about fifty years old. You can do a lot better on Koh Tao. I'll be back to Koh Tao but not to this hole of a place.

I came with my friends to Koh Tao to relax and enjoy the beautiful, serene island for a few days about a month into a five week trip to Thailand. Asia Diver's Resort provided a very nice spot to just chill and relax. I went on a couple great dives in the area and the convenient beach access while not being right on the main strip of the beach made for a good balance. There's a cross fit gym right across the street and a full workout gym about 5 minute walk from there.

Their included breakfast is delicious and was always a nice way to start my day. The pool is open for dive classes as well as general swimming but all in all the diver school that's part of the hotel did not impede on my ability to relax or go for a dip.

Recommend it? Yes...Great value for the money and got the job done!

After checking for more than 10 guest houses from koh tao pier to sairee we chosen Asia Divers Resort.
PROS:
- clean and not overpriced.
- It is around 7 minutes walk to the beach.
- Restaurants and other shops very near.
- The best value for money.

CONS:
- Inconvenient guests made my last 2 nights horrible. I think i was unlucky.

Thailand is always warm and friendly and this was our third trip and they have always been consistent in that area. The resort was clean and presentable although it could do better. The walls were chipping but our cabin was clean and the warm. The hotel in general was refreshing and relaxing especially their pool. We went out to to go diving and the reefs of this place is amazing. We enjoyed swimming with the fish and cruising around the island for most of the day. If you would come here just for the diving, then you've come to the right place. Just don't set your expectations too high for everything else.

I've been there for 3 nights in January 2013. Nice place for 900 TBH/night during peak season. Clean rooms and helpful staff. Nice bathroom but with cold showers. There is wi-fi in rooms. Location is great. Not so far from the beach. Overall, great value for money.
