we had a room for 3 people, not a bungalow. It was just fine. The room was large, clean and not too old. The place is very quiet which is really the highlight of the place. The rooms are not cleaned every day, but maybe it can be done on request .. The staff is very friendly. The pirate bar...

So me and my girlfriend arrived on Koh Tao staying at Taraporn bungalows for five nights to do some scuba diving. When we arrived we got shown to our bungalow which was right on the beach, perfect location for us as you could hear the sea which was nice! However once we got settled in the actual bungalow was very...

Do you know the feeling of being in paradise? Forget it, it was the opposite! The room was very old, the bed... Forget it was full of bugs ( reason why I had to leave earlier), toilets look like jail. We asked to talk with the owners and the answer was " if you want you stay, if you not...

Spent 3 nights here. Room very basic and not luxury, but you do have a fan AND a mosquito net! Nice staff, good restaurant and great basic huts. The best part of it is that you have your own beach just beneath the bungalow. It's so relaxing and chill. We liked it.

I hesitated to write this review. You get what you pay for and these bungalows were cheap. We didn't even mind the horrible bed (seriously terrible, sunk in the middle, you could feel every spring). We laughed it off. I could live with the mosquito net that had a fair amount of holes in it. The tiny bathroom, the manual...

Linked with the Alvaro Diving School in Chalok Ban Kao, 150 Baht per person Taxi ride from the pier. We found it by accident and they had a Bungalow available for 600Baht per night, more or less directly at the beach. Cold water and self-flush toilet. Tab Water not drinkable, it’s really bad quality- sorta yellowish colour, probably rust… did...

Too bad it seems nobody cares about this place, that once maybe was a gem on the most beautiful beach, so the bed, the mosquito net, doors, chairs, everything had holes or had a defect in some way. Bed linen were clean, unlike everything else. Restaurant was overpriced, didn't try. Service was nonexistent.

Stayed for five nights in the room with hot water for 600/night. Basically, I didn't expect much. I just wanted a place to sleep at night away from mosquitoes and that was close to the beach. Two absolutes when I travel: if a place doesn't have bed bugs or cockroaches then I'm fine with staying there (have had bad experiences)....

“Further down the beach (away from where you enter; away from the restaurant) will be quieter, as they are further from the bar. The bar is cool but loud, well into the night.”
