“Comfortable stay”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

A clean and comfortable hotel in the main town of Koh Tao.
Close to all the shops, restaurants dive shops and the pier from where the dive boats leave (this saves you time in the morning).
Friendly staff and free wifi.
I defenitly recommend it.

Honestly can't find any bad words for this place. Rooms were great, staff great and location great. The only thing I could possibly say is it could perhaps benefit from having a pool but our room was literally feet away from the beach so wasn't overly concerned. Fantastic. Would definitely recommend

We stayed in the bungalows here, and had a great time. They were very clean and extremely close to the port / restaurants / shops / the beach. WiFi was good near reception and the guesthouse rooms, we were unable to access it in the bungalows. Right on the path that brings you to what seems to be the main area of Koh Tao.

Can't say enough about this terrific hotel. Was booked in by my dive company. So glad they picked it. Hotel is clean, quiet and next to the beach. Excellent restaurant across the path. Nice staff. Loved the balcony - very peaceful. Short walk to SeaTran. I will stay here next time I'm in Koh Tao and I recommend it highly to anyone taking a trip there.

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
