Blue diamond Resort
Ranked #22 of 50 Hotels in Koh Tao
Reviewed 1 November 2017 via mobile

We wanted to be near a beach for morning swims and snorkeling, where the water is clear, and still near restaurants, shops and bars. Settled on Mae Head and the Blue Diamond was the only cheap hotel on the beach there. The resort is really nice! We stayed in a triple bungalow, and our friends had a poolside room with balcony. Their room was bigger and had a more modern bathroom, but our veranda was the gathering spot for after dinner drinks. We bought a couple of citronella candles and lemongrass incense, and that made the evenings smell nice and be mosquito free. The resort has a sandy beach, which was nice, and a lovely restaurant where you can get a pretty bad American brekky. The Asian brekky was better (noodle soup, topped with yummy toasted garlic). The coffee was unbearable but the Coconut Monkey a few doors down served proper coffee so we survived.

There is a garden hose near the beach, usefully for swilling off the sand.

The pool was really clean and the grounds well maintained. I didn’t know until our last day, but you can keep walking out of town along the beach through a concrete path for a really long way, through the pricier resorts. Go in your swim gear with mask and snorkel, barefoot, to Janson beach, and drift home. There is a good sunken vessel to explore just off the Blue Diamond’s beach.

They should provide cushions for the wooden loungers on the beach, they are hard! The pool loungers are great, but they won’t let you take them down to the beach.

We would definitely stay here again!

We arrived at this hotel late at night and after the entrance was very uninviting, but we were greeted with friendly staff however felt we were interrupting a meal they were in the middle of. We were checked in and given a room and taken up there. There was a big spider outside the room which was of course expected in Thailand however put us on edge, as the door to the bungalow was very flimsly and did not feel secure. Once left in our room, we noticed two lizards in the room, the air con did not work and the room just didnt give the dulexe feel we had paid for. After 10 hours travelling this got on top of us so we decided to find somewhere else to stay. In all fairness, the man on reception gave us a refund for all nights due to the faulty air con so could not fault the service at all.

Reasonable price, great breakfast and spacious clean & tidy . Staff was very friendly and smiling greeting us. Close to pier and a lot of restaurants or local street food , convenience store 7/11 nearby step. Wifi was good... . The pool clean and not so deep, we both always relax at the pool, not so crowded at the pool as well. Overall no negative comments

This hotel comprises a small number of bungalows and a small two storey blocks of apartments set around a medium sized pool. The 3 bedroom bungalow I stayed in was cramped and the bathroom basic but It did the job for the price. I think the apartments are more modern.

The reception area and restaurant is set over the road from the accommodation with a fantastic view of the beach at Mae Haad.

The place is family run and whilst the breakfast wasn't the best, the main meals we're delicious and we ended up eating here most nights. The ginger chicken is highly recommended.

The hotel is about 15 mins walk from the liveliness of Sairee Beach but only 5 mins walk from the main pier.

This hotel would have earned a much better review from me had it been in a different price bracket. For $55 in Thailand I expect a lot more. The first room I was shown to was dirty (dirt on the window seat, rubbish from the previous guest, strange spots on the sheets) and I asked for another. The staff were very kind and showed me to another room. This one was clean, but dated. Peeling floors, a dark bathroom, and still some odd stains on the sheets. There were also little black ants in my room, harmless, but still annoying. The pool area was beautiful and the room had a nice big balcony. It has a convenient location for the ferry. The hotel has some good bones and lots of potential, but it needs some upgrades or a lower price point.
