I spent 3 nights with my parents in Captain Nemo's Guest House. We were all very satisfied by the owner, Philippe, greeting and service. The room was clean, beds were confortable and room was big enough to deploy all 3 big suitcases ;) Access to the restaurants, shops and piers is super convenient, the ideal solution if you want to...

Friends of mine experienced this guesthouse a year ago and loved it. The location is next to the beach, restaurants are all around, so convenient. Everything you need is in the room; fridge, TV with DVD player,and hundreds of free movies. Icing on the cake; quiet nights in a REAL COmFORTABLE BED, just like in good hotels, awesome. The owners...

Captain Nemo Guesthouse is a comfortable place a few minute walk to the ferry and several good restaurants. If you're looking for an island resort, this is not it, but it is perfect if you get in on a late ferry, have an early ferry out, or just want to stay by the pier. The rooms are clean and comfortable...

I traveled with two other friends and we were allowed to have the entire guesthouse to ourselves. The price was very reasonable for Koh Tao, 1200B. The accommodations were clean, with A/C, full bathroom and 3 beds. But even better was the manager. Philip gave us great advice upon our arrival which helped make our two day stay on the...

We were 3 nights at Captain Nemo Guesthouse and we really enjoyed it! There aren't so many places in Thailand, where you can sleep without loud noises from outside, but at this place you can.

This is a lovely little guesthouse. The location is very convenient, many bars and restaurants nearby and it's just a short walk to the pier in Mae Haad. The owners, Philippe and Som are always around to give you information and help with booking tours, ferries etc.

Tried different places in Kho Tao (because of diving-class I had a place to stay etc.). This one was by far the best. Toilet and shower is separated by a wall (biiiiig plus!!!) and the owners (french guy and his wife) are really really helpful and nice. If you ask, they will give you helpful advice for the area and...

The staff are very friendly and accommodating at this wonderful guesthouse. As first time visitors to Koh Tao, Philippe and his wife gave us lots of information and answered all of our queries. They also run a travel agent which makes it easy to organise excursions. We would recommend the snorkelling trip, a superb day out. A good nights sleep...
