Ko Tao, well what is there to say, what a Thai Gem....... We only stayed three nites. With the excellent food drinks and play available one must stay longer. Hire yourself a scooter and your set. No TukTuk's, No taxi's just freedom to explore.

I am backpacking with a friend and we stayed at the deluxe garden room for 5 nights. From a German point of view, everything went smoothly, the resort is nicely located and the staff professional, efficiently and also try to give you deals when possible. The room was very clean, wifi worked well and breakfast was by menue order but...

Our stay was terrible. The staff is rude and the rooms are filthy. The room was full of cockroaches and other animals and the "air condition" was not any better then a standard fan. On top I should mention the fact the room we received was up a steep hill. Not very comfortable in the well known Thailand heat. After...

It's all looks nice at the photos and reviews but when you arrive you are just a number to them. The room had so many cockroaches and mosquitoes I stopped counting them. The door to the balcony couldn't be locked (ground floor) and at the morning the staff of the hotel took all our luggage and stuff out from the...

Did my Open Water and Advanced Open Water courses here. We had Michael as our instructor who I think must be the most patient guy on the island! He is an absolutely brilliant instructor who took the time to really go through everything slowly and carefully. I had a few issues at the start of the dives and he stuck...

We arrived to Ban's Diving Resort after reading many recommendations about it to do the open water diving course. The course itself was AMAZING! The instructors Anthony Griffiths and Jeffrey Black were the most professional, patient and funny we could have got (global instructor of the year, twice, is not something you get for nothing). They made even some boring...

From beginner to expert diver this place is excellent affordable and the people are great. Our dive instructors Abby and Julian are superb. Not only did they make the experience fun and enjoyable, they really trained us well building confidence before and during dives. I would return because of them. The Island and the resort are amazing. The resort is...

Bans's diveresort is one of the biggest in the world. So no wonder it's very spread out and has 3 pools. Unfortunately most of the times two of the pools were very busy with divers. So there was just one pool left for swimming or just relaxing. We had a beautiful bungalow up the hill with a stunning view, a...

“Depending of your need (quiet or not), ask for a room close to the dive center (more noisy) or far from the dive center (more quiet)”

“Rooms near infinity pool are a good size, not great if you have mobility problems, as the walk up from the beach is steep.”
