We booked last minute and arrived at the hotel early. We could still check in and we were upgraded to a deluxe room by Kung who was on reception at the time. She was really helpful and welcoming. Deluxe is used very loosely in koh tao as I have stayed in a few other places including Bans diving resort which...

We needed somewhere to stay quickly and this was the easiest place to stop in Sairee Beach. We paid 2000 baht for a the second highest room. The room was clean, had AC, but was still pretty basic. Breakfast is OK. Staff are generally very friendly, though a porter did magically make himself 'busy' just when my wife needed him...

There are 3 simple life resort this is the one with the bar and cafe. And also where most of the divers stay for the courses. Stayed here just because I also did the Open water course at the resort. Though they did not offer discount when you apply for the OW, other resort would be giving you one. I...

This place is great. Lovely, clean, maintained pool and grounds. Rooms were huge and clean. Housekeeping everyday if you really want it. Front desk and staff are helpful and friendly. Requested quieter room and it was silent and peaceful. Awesome location; walking distance to main restaurants and beach. Prices are cheaper online with hotel providers as opposed to front desk.

The hotel is located facing the main street in Sairee beach area, just a few steps away from the beach. You can easily walk to many places from the hotel. We booked the standard room and we although outdated, room was big, with balcony facing the pool and the bathroom was huge. For a 3 star hotel, I think it's...

Friendly staff, spacious room. Probably it's common for Koh Tao but the internet connection was quite bad, I ended up using my own mobile data. The Location is very nice, it's in the center of Sairee. The massage place at the hotel was pretty good! Love their big bed and pillows!

Very friendly front desk staff which were so helpful and made our stay great. Breakfast was great with fresh made eggs to order and lots of fruit and veggies. They even packed a breakfast for my husband when he left early for diving. Room was clean, bed comfy, porch nice, and location great. They also recommended Chopper Bar for a...
