We really enjoyed our time on Ko Tao. We got the AC-Room for free due to the low season and the Open Water Diving Course. The room was ok, nothing special but the diving was just mind blowing. First, me and my girlfriend we were not so sure if diving is the right thing for us, but we did it...

The Staff from The Resort is friendly and helpful. One friend of our group didnt book any Diving Course - but still she could stay 5 days for free with us in our private room. Our Diving Instructor was really cool and did his Job well! There's nothing to complain. I can recommend ban's Diving Resort !

We stayed at the new wing at Ban’s for three days. The rooms are perfect, the pool and poolarea is awesome and the staff are so sweet and beyond helpful. Even the restaurant by the beach is among the best and very fair priced. My wife and I are definitely coming back!

I booked open water diving and advanced open water diving together for 6 nights, accommodation was included in the package, by far, the cheapest I have ever seen. The instructor was Rich, for both courses, he is amazing and he really knows what he is teaching! To be honest, you don't really need to go over everything in the manual...

Great food! Drinks not so until my friend Peter takes over the bar! We went there for the last lunch in Koh tao before we head out and it was great. Nice location, calm atmosphere and great food. We ordered the shrimp tempura for starters followed by the mains of fish and chips, sea food pasta and Thai green curry....

We stayed here for 5 nights during our Open Water course and had a great time! We could start our course the same day we arrived so that gave us an extra day on the island. The first night we got a Deluxe room because the 'free' standard rooms were all occupied and had to change to a standard room...

@ Diving school I had a great diving experience at Bans during my open water advanced course. I had the fortune to learn from Keith and not only felt very safe and well taught but also had so much fun. He is the best! @Hotel room I choose a low cost hotel room and obviously it is not a luxury...

“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.”
