Plus: free pickup by the hotel when we arrived by boat. The room had a nice balcony and the aircondition did actually work. We also heard very good things about their diverschool- we did not use it though.

Minus: room and sheets was dirty. Huge gap by all doors and windows, resulting in huge amounts of mosquitos and a lot of noise! On one side a very busy road and on the other side roosters (!) that start up at 5 AM.
Where the drain should be on the bathroom floor, we just had a massive hole (God knows what could crawl up from that!) Also shower did not work properly
Staff is not at all helpfull or friendly!
Location is quite far from the beach and the pool is full of divers, so forget about swimming during the day.
The entire place is worn down and dated.

I do not at all understand the positive reviews this place have received. The standard of this "resort" is of a bad hostel. Would never stay again!

To be fair the standard is quite low in Koh Tao compared to the other islands, so be prepared to pay a bit more for a desent room here.

Me and my friend could not dive, because her hand was broken and could not get into the water. But we liked Koh Tao nevertheless. The swimming pool was really clean, the restaurant was cheap and the food there was OK, we were picked up from the pier and dropped off for no extra cost and the beds were comfy. It´s close to the beach and overall just a really nice accommodation.

Enjoyed our stay at the resort. Nice staff breakfast at the restaurant was fine. The room we booked turned out to be a thai style wooden room. Afterwards I read on tripadvisor that we could have changed it to a more western style room if we had asked. This room was a littlle bit more open foor bugs and insects because of al the open cracks in the walls. But that didn't really mather to us. After al the other western rooms this room was more beautiful and it had a more authentic feel to us. nice private balcony. Just buy a can of bug spray to be sure. The room was clean though. And the location was very nice. Not in the most busy part of town. But still walking distance to most stuff.

We stayed here for 6 nights in January 2014. The rooms are really spacious, clean and have a balcony. We only had a fan room but never found the room to be too hot.

The pool area is nice with comfortable sun loungers and always kept clean.

The location of the hotel is very good about a 5 minute walk down to the beach where all of the bars are so it is quiet at night to get some sleep.

Stayed here for 6 nights in May and cannot recommend this place highly enough. Our room was spacious and clean, the air-con worked well, and the pool is HUGE. Each room has its own little balcony with table and chairs which is nice. Our room was cleaned every day, sheets changed, new water, new towels etc. As for the diving, another 5 stars. My girlfriend completed her Open water and i went on several fun dives. The locations were great and the dive staff were awesome. The hotel is about a 3 minute walk to the middle of the restaurants in Sairee, and about a 10 minute walk to the beach. Look no further, this is a great resort.

My stay at Asia divers (four weeks in total) was excellent. I don't understand the reviewers on here saying why they had bad service. For the price you pay it's a very good resort. Swimming pool, bar and restaurant and the staff in general are very friendly. Then not extremely chatty because they are Thai and their English is not great but if you get to know them they are extremely welcoming.
I did see some people at the resort without the same impression during my time there, but in general I think that was more of an issue them not understanding Thai culture rather than the resort staff being rude.
It's not the Ritz, but my room was cleaned and sheets turned down every day, the food was excellent and good value and this was one of the few resorts on the island with a decent sized swimming pool. The location was excellent because it was not right in the noisy part of the island but just a short walk from the beach and the grounds surrounding the resort were beautifully done. I would definitely stay here again and I would also recommend it.
Again for the price you pay I think it represents very good value, it's not the best place to stay on the island by any means but some of the prices in other resorts are way more expensive.
