I recently stayed here with a group of 9 friends. We all have been living in Thailand for over a year so we know the standards of Thai hotels. We were okay with all the bugs. We were okay with the lack of cleanliness in our room. However, we weren't okay with all the dead ants that were purposely left...

I feel like advertisement on booking.com is a big scam! I think the reviews are written by staff members to give this place good reviews. This was the wort stay in Thailand we had it was that bad we had to book into another hotel. After being in Thailand for 2 weeks every single local or member of staff we...

This bungalow really is stunning, was really happy seeing it. But I am not for the outdoors! Although the beds have nets, I didn't sleep much due to SO MANY BUGS. I used an entire can of insect spray and that got all the flies and mosquitoes, however it's the ants that can get through the net that I just...

We decided to pay a little extra for our last days in Thailand which we spent on Koh Tao. Unfortunately, we ended up being very disappointed. The first impression was quite alright as we received a welcome drink and the location of the resort seemed nice. Unfortunately, there was a mistake with our booking as it was not clear from...

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...
