Reviewed 22 May 2014

Room was far too hot and the fan made no difference whatsoever!

There was loads of ants in our room and my sister got bitten so much, the ants then managed to get into all of our bags and continued to bite my sister for a couple more days.

The location was good, close to the beach and nightlife and some yummy restaurants.

3 months ago we looked for a nice place. We called their reception to confirm all rooms/bungalows would have 'ocean view'. The employee on the phone said most rooms did and we would need to put a comment in our booking that we wanted ocean view and they would organise it. Based on that information we booked and alerted our friends to book the same place. They booked it 4 weeks after us, paid the same amount and when we arrived we got a little box looking out over a construction site... And when we told the guy about our request he said there was nothing we could do and if we wanted ocean view it was gonna be an extra 2500 baht!! Absolute rip off because our friends (who paid the same) managed to check in just before us and had the wonderful spacious room with beautiful sea views. Customer service was next to nothing. He blamed Agoda for misleading photos but there FB page only shows the great side of this crap resort. This is called false advertising!! Another Thai company that squeezes every dollar out of a tourist and doesn't care about repeat business. They over promise what can be delivered, don't stay here. Also: there are no communal areas (it's all rocks and a tiny bit of beach where people lay next to each other like sardines in a jar)

Room was not cleaned once during our stay, not even the bins emptied. Cheap price but we have just paid one pound more a night and got a lot more for our money. Bugs got into our room very easily through the gap under the door and bathroom. A lot of work been done infront of our room that we were unaware of.
Good proximity to the beach and wifi in the room was a plus.

Stay anywhere but here. It's cheap, but that's it! Not clean, pillows were soo mouldy, never seen so much mould, just couldn't bring myself to use them. Sheets and towels dirty. Laid on top of the sheets. Cold water. Bathroom smelt of urine and very unpleasant. Would not recommend unless last resort.

We stayed ther in a basic double bed bungalow with a fan. The hole resort looks like its just getting built. The view out of the room is straight on the construction work but its not to bad because basicly there is so much to find out on the island that you're just for sleeping in you're bungalow. The bungalows really basic, the bathrooms as well but it was all clean.
Its really quiet and located at the beach in the middle between the main beach and the pier. Its just a 10min walk to both. Only bad thing is that there is no street connection to the mainroad for scooters or cars so if you wanna go somewhere you have to use the path along the beach where all the people walking.
It's not the best you can get for this price at koh tao but its still a nice bungalow resort.

Room Tip: ask for a fan room located with the door to the beach so you getting wind about the night and its re...

There you get what you paid for. Cheap place (400-1000 THB per night), basic rooms. You pay in the morning for each new day you want to stay here. Would you want to stay here for another day? That's depends on what exactly you need.

We stayed here for two nights. Our room was on top with a good sea view from a big terrace. For 1000 THB it's a pretty decent room. I mean, if you're travelling, you don't have to spend all day inside. It's a normal place to stay for the night, and that's all.

Yes, they have some problems with cleaning (I think, you have to ask them by yourself when you need some room service), and also there is no strongbox inside, so it's better to take all your goods with you when leaving for a day (but thievery is a rare case on Tao and Samui, as much as I know).

Also, there is no restaurant in resort (well, I didn't notice any), but I don't think I would eat there, especially when you have all the bars, caffeteries and restaurants within 2-3 minutes of walking from here to the beach.

The shower had some hot water, at least in our room. Conditioner was broken, but not the fan, thankfully.

This place really needs some work with. It could be fantastic resort, because, despite the poor room service (actually, they don't have any at all), everything is kinda great. Good location - 2-3 minutes walking from the beach with all it's bars, restaurants and fun; great view at the sea and the beach, especially at evenings.

We got this accommodation free with our dive school, DJL, for one week. The cheapest fan rooms should have been 400B and the aircon rooms went up to 1000B.

We asked when we wanted our rooms cleaning and when we wanted new towels - the lady also does laundry at reception.

The rooms here are really basic with cold showers and a desk fan on the wall. The bed was really uncomfortable and after 3 nights we realised it was broken! I woke up with small bites all over the inside of my arms but not sure where they were from as my girlfriend didn't have any! The location here is good, though, as it is right at the end of Sairee Beach and only a short walk into town and very close to the bars and restaurants along the beach.

We were staying in Koh Tao another week but decided to look for new accommodation because this was too expensive for what you got and I would only stay here again if it was free!
