Stayed here with my partner September 2012 for 4 nights.
When we were picked up by the hotel from the pier & driven here, I will not lie, I felt worried!!
The drive to the hotel was literally down VERY steep looking dusty track roads & I felt scared that we would be confined to the resort & unable to get a scooter to explore Koh Tao.
Luckily my boyfiend is very good at riding scooters/motorbikes so after he had coaxed me into it, we booked a taxi the next day to Mae Haad to go rent a scooter & we conquered the roads just fine!
The rooms were clean & spacious. The maids were in daily with clean towels, coffee/tea sachets & complimentary bottles of water, which we thought was a nice touch.
The food in the restaurant was nice, we ate there numerous times, The staff were ok, but there was one staff member who stood out & we often chatted with, Kiat (one of the waiters) he was such a lovely guy!
The infinity pool was lovely (free pool towels are available, another nice touch) overlooking the resorts own shingle beach.
There is a nice beach bar open on a night where you can get cocktails & chill on the dimly lit up beach!
The sea was the best, as the snorkelling was terrific!! A couple that we met saw a turtle! You can hire snorkels, goggles & flippers for 200 bahts from the hotels own diving centre.
We really appreciated the seclusion of Tanote bay, it was so private & serene, we drove around the whole island & we thought we had definitely made the best choice resort wise after all!!
