We have just returned home after 3 weeks in Thailand.
This is an annual trip for us so we have had plenty of varied experiences with accomodation.
We stayed in the Beach Villas for just 3 nights and really enjoyed our time there. It seems that many of the issues raised in the earlier review have since been fixed. We stayed in the one bedroom villa which is very spacious. It's important to mention that we stayed there during a dry season so the weather was perfect each day.
The villa is balinese style and very open to the elements and geckos. The TV and DVD player did not get much use as the view staight over the plunge pool kept us enthrawled until dark came, which is when we wandered to one of the many bars and restaurants nearby. I recommend the Buddha View Bar with BBQ!
Eventually when we got home the mosquito netting worked fine, no bites for us.
The room was cleaned each day, beds made, towels changed, and the service was definately friendly. This is not a resort though, it's two very nice Villas for rent. You stock your own minibar and find your own breakfast, there are many good choices for this at whatever time you rise.
Our transfers were reliable, on time, and helpful.
For Koh Tao standards I rate this very high and worth the money if you want to splash out. This leads to the only tricky point which is that they look so good from the beach, many people do look in with a 'wow' look on their face. We soon got used to it. At first i thought the owners could build a little fench infront of the plunge pool, but this would ruin the best part which is the view.
We loved it.
