“Why did no-one tell me!!”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

After reading the tripadvisor reviews I was expecting a nice mid range hotel, slightly away from the busy town with easy access to things. How wrong we were... We got picked up from the ferry and driven the 5 minutes down the main road where we stopped, both myself and my wife thought hold on a second is this it?? Yes it's right on the main road, we check in to the room which is basic at best, sheets weren't clean, air con didn't work very well and there were bugs and insects about the room. The worst is yet to come as we get woken up numerous times during the night as what we didn't know was that this hotel is right next to THE CASTLE the nightclub on Koh Tao that plays really loud music till after 4am, 4 times a month (maybe the other people who reviewed this hotel were lucky to not be there during one of these club nights!) so we got hardly any sleep all night long. Breakfast was barely adequate and overall I really don't think this place is worth staying at even if it were a lots cheaper. There were no mopeds for us to hire so we had to walk into town to hire one and the staff were all just lazing around all day and whenever you wanted anything you had to hope that the one who had passable English was available otherwise you didn't get anywhere.  Do not stay here is all I can conclude with.

Stayed there one week, mid range price, first rate room, friendly staff, quiet end of town. Resort has their own boat for snorkelling trips, or for fishing, ask manger if wanting to rent a motorbike as the don't ask for you to hand over passport, nor any hassles when returning bike, as has happened to me at other rental places. Big spacious rooms, have fridges, flat screens, hot water and air con, comfortable beds with quality bedding, definitely would stay there again.

Room Tip: Most snorkelling boats have fifty tourists on board, their's may have only six to eight guests...

We stayed here for 4 nights in the month of November 2012 - the rooms excellently decorated, the host was quite friendly, and the place spotlessly clean...

We hired a scooter as soon as we arrived for 150 B and had absolutely no trouble getting anywhere on the island in fact it was only a 5 min drive from the main May Head pier...

There are other Hotels/Bungalows right on the beach where you can get a room for a similar price. However the room quality of those on the beach was not as good, we quite enjoyed the room quality here at Toscana... Of course there are better quality hotels right on the beach but they tend to be more expensive...

Also we are those sort of people who are really scared of ants and insects and were really glad that this place was very hygienic and we had no problems with any sorts of insects or something like that...

Lastly the only probable improvement would be to include tea/coffee making facilities within the room which was not available...

Stayed four nights and thoroughly recommend it...

This is a very nice hotel and if it would have been near some sort of beach property like it shows on google maps or other maps then it would have recived a better score.

note that the hotel is about 20 minuts walk to the nearest beach on a dark road (at night) with no pavment. Unless you are going to rent a motorcycle to go from the hotel to the beach or other places i wold sugest you to look someplace else.

let's rip it down to te facts.
the hotel is next to the mainroad if tao and not right at the beach.
the staff is really nice and always smiling for you! (doesnt happen that often these days)
they do great food (local
and western).
the breakfast is included and very huge.
the rooms are modern, clean and everything is working.
You either have a nice terrace or balcony.
We'ld stay here again.

The rooms were nice and generally clean. There was however a kind of bad drain smell in the bathroom, but not due to the hotel cleanliness, because it was reasonable. The staff were very kind and ready to help. The breakfast was included and very good. The location is far from everything, you have to either rent a scooter or use taxi-s. The hotel itself offers taxi service at reasonable rates (100-250 Baht).
