We stayed here for three days in the deluxe villa down at the sea. The villa (just a room with somehow an open bathroom and a big window to the small backyard filled with grasses) is beautiful, with a balcony and a big window front just a couple of meters above the sea. The bed is large and comfortable, the room is very clean and the bathroom is convenient. Staff was very nice and helpful (yes, often their English is not that good, but don't forget your in koh Tao and most of the staff is not even Thai but Burmese). The breakfast and dining area are boutique, so if you like top modern standards you will judge this to be rustique. Up to you. We found it awesome. Breakfast is good, although it seems it could be a bit more diverse. We had one dinner in the restaurant and we're really impressed by their food. Of course, you can have a much less expensive dinner at other places on the island. The pool area is nice, and very clean. We also tried the spa, Thai massage, facial massage and aloe Vera wrap. We found it okay, though not impressive for the price; one has to say that, however, the spa was very clean and the staff very friendly.
The hotel has some downsides, but they are all easy to find out before you go there, so don't blame the hotel if you hate climbing six floors to the breakfast area if you stay in the deluxe villa down at the sea, far apart from the hotels standard rooms. Moreover, the hotel is of course secluded so u cannot simply walk to the town for the evening. Finally, the hotel doesn't have a private beach, but they do offer you to get you to shark bay nearby, which is a 1 minute boat ride.
