We stayed there with 2 children at the age 4 and 9 years old. We where a bit dissapointed that there was no beach. And the steps and so on. But that dissapointment was gone within moments. Great staf and the owner, Thing, is a great chap with kids. My 4 year old son was there all the time and they became great friends. Thing has an education as a chef. So all the food is excelent.
The place and staff is great. Take what you need of food and drinks and pay when you leave or at the end of the day. You might want to skip aircondition to save money. That is ok. The bay is filled with fish and the water is as clear as it can be. Thing is a friend of fishermen on the island, and they bring fish for dinner and for the bay. So the bay has unique variety of marine life.
Relax, breathe, read a book and go snorkling. Its a place of calm and quiet. The owner can arrange trips in the island and a trip into the small town. We stayed for 11 days. It was amazing.

In order for you to like this resort as much as we did, you have to be going there for 1 or 2 reasons only – snorkeling/diving and/or to be completely disconnected from the rest of the world. If you have any other expectations included getting western style anything, stay elsewhere. Our expectations were inline with this, so we had a great time.

For us, we went for the amazing snorkeling. We stayed in an air conditioned (12hrs of electricity per day only) bungalow with a king bed and a twin bed. From what we could tell, all the bungalows had an ocean view. A/C is not really needed because of this and we could have done without. We rented snorkel equipment from their hotel as well as a kayak to paddle from bay to bay. The equipment all worked well and we had no issues.

Do not stay here if: you can’t climb steps (there are a ton!), aren’t up for a pick up truck ride to and from the resort, want hot water, need a telephone, need internet, do not like jungle critters, need shampoo/lotion/etc provided, or want the comforts of “traditional” western living.

Do stay here if you want to meet incredible folks, eat some good Thai food, interact with wonderful staff who go out of their way to give you a hand, have a very relaxing and disconnected vacation, and see some amazing coral and fish.

VIEW ROCK RESORT is on ao hing bay, north east side of ko tao.
owner, nao (f) meets the boats, and drives to the "resort" in their 4WD, a TERRIBLE road, 3km, 20 minutes.

resort is on the rocks, (the view is of the bay, not the rocks!) no beach, ladders down to lovely clear water with fish and coral right under the jetty.

simple cabins, 300/500/800 baht, reduced for long stay. there's even one cabin right on the waterfront (share shower) for 100bt ! the others are up innumerable steps, all have water views and balcony and bathroom. view over the bay is stupendous, but fishing boats sometimes park (noisily) at night.

snorkel, scuba, rent kayak, er, that's it. must stress, very quiet place. internet access 2bt/min (usual island rate)

food good and reasonably priced.
