We stayed in Jamahkiri for 4 nights from 3rd-7th March 2014. This was the 'chill out' part of our 2 week holiday in Thailand and the hotel did not disappoint for this- very secluded, beautiful location with sea views from every room and from the pool, it was also very quiet with few guests, always easy to get a sunbed by the pool or seat in the restaurant. We stayed in the hotel part of the resort and the room was very big and clean with good facilities. Food in the restaurants was also very good, although obviously more expensive than other restaurants in koh tao, and there wasn't such a wide variety at breakfast as we experienced at some other less expensive hotels during our stay in Thailand. The one complaint that we had about our stay is that for the money that we paid versus other hotels we stayed in we were disappointed in the service, the staff couldn't speak very good English were sometimes quite unhelpful and slow. Some examples, we experienced very slow service in The Grill restaurant, we were never seated or offered coffee at breakfast without having to seek someone out to order, and when our fire alarm was going off at 4am we got no answer when we called reception...only to find out the next day the staff member on duty didn't answer because he couldn't speak English. A bit worrying if there was a proper emergency! This latter point did not ruin our holiday because the hotel was so beautiful and we had a great time chilling by the pool, snorkelling and visiting nearby shark bay, but we probably would not chose to go back here if we visited koh tao again.
