“Nice Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013

We got booked here through TAT up in Bangkok. Never go to a tourist information place, its a complete scam!! This place turned out to be nice even through we were paying way more then we should have been through TAT. It is a great location, right next to restaurants, shops, and the ferry pier. The restaurant that is part of the hotel, is amazing! soo cheap and the best thai food we had in Koh Tao. The staff is really friendly and helpful. I would stay here again. We got a fan room the first few nights. Not bad, basic, had a nice porch. We upgraded to a aircon room for an extra 500bht. Kinda pricey, but the room was beautiful! One of the nicest rooms we stayed in throughout our month in Thailand. Dark wood, comfy king size bed, so clean, fridge, flat screen, fan, closet, porch. Anyway, this is a nice place, check it out!

This is a fantastic place directly on the beach and very close to the pier at Mae Haad-maybe only 50 metres away. The village shops and bars are on your doorstep.

I stopped in the room on the top floor which had direct view of the beach front from the bedroom window- there is also a balcony were you can sit and watch the sunset.

Eveything in the room was to a good standard and everything worked very well. Air con was fine and there is a massive ceiling fan as well.

You will struggle to find a better place than this on Koh Tao. I'd definatley like to stop here again.

There is a very nice restaurant next door (think is owned by the same people- which is very good and very cheap. This was the best Thai food we ate during our stay.

Sairee village which is now probably bigger than Mae Haad village is about 20 minutes walk- however you can get all you need in Mae Haad.

Room Tip: the best room is the most expensive one - but you not going to get a view like that everyday

We stayed in Ananda Villa while doing our PADI with Crystal Dive. It was literally right next door to the dive school so hugely convenient for us and it's also a 2min walk from the ferries coming in from Koh Samui and going out to Chumphon on the mainland. It's about a 15min walk from the main part of town but there were still plenty of restaurants and bars nearby. The room was clean and spacious and incredible value. We ended up extending our stay by an extra 3 days. Definitely a good find on Koh Tao.

Not party central but a lot of great restaurants and bars near by.

Staff friendly helpful and accommodating. I lost my adapter and they lent me one for the duration of my staff free of charge.

If you want your room cleaned you just need to leave a sign on your door.

Good value for money. Pictures highly accurate. Fan rooms arn't too hot like some I've stayed in before. Well designed. Would defiantly stay again.

We were lucky to get a great rate on a brand new bungalow that would have otherwise been out of our price range a little. The staff were delightful, location great and the new bungalow lovely. We stayed on the island for two weeks starting in this villa, then moved to another bay but came back to this place as it was such a great deal.

Spent 4 nights as part of a diving course. Windows, Bathroom wasn't that clean. For the price they charged we had to explicitly tell them to clean the room. It would have been expected that this was done on a daily basis without need to tell them.

I stayed for 10 nights in a fan bungalow. These are located in a quieter position than the basic and superior rooms away from the noise from Crystal Divers. Good basic double bed room with bathroom and hot shower. Expect to be joined by a gecko or two but they are harmless and keep the mosquitoes down. Use a mosquito coil at night and beware if you sit on the balcony near to dusk. You will get bitten! The staff are great and respond to any request quickly and efficiently. The rooms are cleaned on request by putting a small sign of your door. This system works well. Don't expect luxury, for this price you won't get that anywhere. The location is perfect for me close to many shops, restaurants, Master Divers and the vital 7/11. I will stay again.

Room Tip: Garden bungalows, fan or A/C are quieter.
