Loved staying here at the start of our honeymoon. It's located very close to the pier where the boat drops you off. Its beach front bar and restaurant have an amazing view of the bay. We stayed in one of their bungalows which was perfect. A\C and shower. It also has a hammock on your veranda. The staff were very...

Koh Tao Royal Resort is not an exceptional resort by any means. The rooms are tidy but old. There's a hammock outside but the mosquitoes will make sure that you don't use it for too long. The food is slightly on the costlier side, but good. However, the location is pretty damn good, as you can actually just walk into...

Very peaceful yet only couple of minutes walk to the pier. Lovely chalets, clean and cosy. Close to nice restaurants. Would definitely recommend it. Weather wasn't the best during my stay but if sun's out it's perfect. Easy to get to other places as taxi services are everywhere.

We stayed here for 6 nights and all in all was a pleasent experience. Bungallows very close to the beach, friendly and helpful staff. The beach, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful on this side of the island. It is indeed quite far from where all the action happens but renting a scooter it's a must anyways...

Absolutely loved the location of this hotel. It was pure paradise. Our bungalow was really cute. It also had a hammock outside. Restaurants were close by and we also had nice food in the hotel's restaurant. Would definitely recommend this hotel. Also if you come to this island definitely go on a snorkelling boat trip. It was an amazing day...

I stayed here for one night (because unfortunately they were fully booked the night after) and I absolutely loved it. It's right on the beach, the view is stunning, the people are nice and the bungalow was above average. Because I am only a backpacker and solo I had the standard bungalow with fan (which was enough for just me)...

Got picked up from the port via the hotel pickup, there were 10 of us cramped into the back of the pickup truck. The road was dusty so be prepared for it as the island is still developing, new drainage, new roads, new properties so Im not surprised. Straight into the rooms, the design was clearly aged, the beds could...

Check in on 14/02/2017. the shed was not very clean, we found a lizard in bed !!! The only advantage of this hotel is the fact to be near to the pier. So you need bike to go to the downtown. Not the best beach around. Reception closed at 10pm WiFi doesn't realy work, very low signal. Emine & Jabrane...
