Ban's came recommended to my friends and I by almost everyone who has been to Koh Tao! It didn't disappoint, the property was beautiful, the beach was beautiful, the rooms were clean (and the nicest of any place we stayed in Thailand), and the staff was very helpful. We stayed in a gardenview room (more expensive, but DO IT), and none of us took the diving course because we weren't staying for long enough but the resort has something for everyone. Ban's boasts 2 pools, and I read in other reviews that people were upset the pools are full of diving classes, well they are, but why the heck aren't you on the beach??? Don't even bother with the pool, go to the beach, grab food at the restaurant at Ban's they had great cheap food, and at night you can walk along the beach and go to any bar and have a great time. Also really nice was the little street that runs through the resort, they have a convenience store, and thai massages everywhere for cheap. You can also walk up and down the street to find other restaurants, amazing authentic Thai food everywhere. I would recommend NOT getting a hilltop room, they are very very far from the beach and amenities. We ended up booking an all day snorkelling tour of the entire island through the front desk for 750 BAHT each and if you aren't there for diving it was great we all loved it and you get to see the whole island as well as a private island! If I ever have the pleasure of going back to Koh Tao there is no other place I would stay.
