First of all, I love Koh Tao. It is such a chill and good feel Island, and hopefully it will stay like that a while longer.
Montalay is on the very quite side of the Island, and pretty hard to get to. This might of course put you off, if your looking to party with your fellow divers.
We met a rep. when we arrived, and went with him as he was really helpfull and cool. Apart from him, the service was average and not really great. The hotel restaurant is very basic, and there's really not that much happening.
It's clean, and quiet, which we actually wanted for a couple of days, before heading over to the dark side.
That side of the island has great snorkeling, and the beach is sort of secluded and nice. This is also the side of the island where your more likely to catch a glimpse of sharks when diving!
Over all, quiet, kind of boring, nothing over the ordinary.
