They where having major water problems when we where there. No water in the mornings or night. I'm pretty easy going on accomadation....

The place is good, if you want to party and you dont care if there's few millipedes at the toilet. The Sairee beach biggest party starts every night about 9PM, right in front of the resort, at the beach. If you stay bungalows closer to the village, the noise doesn't hear inside. The pool was good, every now and then...

Staff are so rude. Rooms are filthy, spiders, cockroaches, and god only know what else! We had 2 power cuts for a long period of time when we approached the staff about it they spoke in Thai and ignored us. We left after one night after paying for more. There are so many beautiful hotels in koh Tao that you...

A great location for the beach and town but from 1am to 5am, you suffer shouting drunks walking past your room. When you pay, the receptionist scrawls no refunds on the bill(100% upfront) so you are royally screwed from the first night....

Absolutely awful - avoid this place. My wife boooked without checking TA, and it's diabolical. We left a day early because we and our kids couldn't sleep due to the resort beach party until 2.30 am each night. We were as far away as you can get, so I can only imagine what it's like even closer. If you're diving...

This place is obviously for people that haven't read about it on tripadvisor, like we didn't. When we checked in, they kept my wife's passport. Some hotels do that, but it was the first that did on our trip, so I didn't like it but I wondered what could really happen (ominous start). We were given a bungalow, and a...

Now that Ko Tao accommodation prices have gone as mental as those on Phi Phi etc, you just get used to paying over the top prices for substandard accomodation. Like the Sunset Buri. I stayed here first over a decade ago and it was clean, well run, and quiet. Now, it's run down, badly run (new owners), and has a...

The rooms here are so hot! None of the windows open in any of the rooms, and so at night our room was stifling. The location was good and the pool was great, but the trouble I had sleeping, because of the heat, ruined my stay.

Okay, here's a balanced review - who it's good for and who it isn't. For me, a twentysomething backpacker looking for something near to a beach, near to the nightlife and nothing more than a place to put my head down at night - it was perfect. Staff don't say (or do) a lot, didn't try the food as there...
