“Only stay here if you are diving”
Reviewed 20 October 2007

We arrived in Koh Tao and found that the accomodation was expensive compared to the other nearby island. Buddha View was the only one reasonable with nice rooms. Only one of our group of 4 was diving. There isn't much else to do here if you are not diving. There were two main problems with the place. THere is a huge amount of noise outisde at night with only light doors on the balcony so you won't get much sleep. THe other problem for us was that my parnter got food poisoning from eating at the restaurant at Budha View. He was extremely ill from this. We had to stay an extra night as he couldn't travel because he was so sick. He was still weak the next day and we asked could we stay in our room until 2 when our taxi arrived for the boat. They said no and after we argued he had been sick in their own restaurant and we had stayed an extra night they said we could. However they arrived to our room at midday and said we should actually leave then. No apology or anything. So we were not impressed and had ni\ot even thought of complaining too much about the food poisoning. Overall the problems we had probably won't effect everyone to be fair but I was very annoyed leaving this place.
