Stayed here as part of a fun dive package with Phoenix Divers. Try to avoid this place. Had 4 nights in the garden cottage. Really dark, worst water pressure in the shower ever. Bed was terrible - just an old spring mattress with half of them broken that was put on a lifted stage. The resort staff itself was really...

Good location on Sairee Beach but the noise, pool and wifi!! Rooms are cleaned everyday as long as u request at reception before midday. Rooms are a good size with comfy beds, decent air con, a tv and an ok bathroom. Good location right on the beautiful Sairee Beach near all the bars and restaurants which is very nice but........

I didn't stay there, didn't eat there. But my diving school Blue Immersion recommended their one day snorkeling trip when I asked them. They have it on a daily basis and you can just pay and register at their counter by the beach road. As it turned out, it's pretty cheap compare to other dive trips, plus among all the...

We ate here about 8 times during our 10 day stay and it was all for the Thai food. We didn't try anything else on the menu as they do Thai so well. There isn't a lot of good Thai restaurants on the island so if you're a fan of curries and pad Thai these guys win at it for...

I have set up a TripAdvisor account to warn people from staying at this place. I stayed here with my boyfriend in August 2016 and I do not know where to start. The first night we were put in a very small bungalow, it was simple with AC and a tv, slightly dirty and outdated with a toilet as small...

Ko Tao must be one of the few places on the back packer route that you must book in advance and prepare yourself to pay a premium. There is very little in the midrange category and some very average resorts charge a fortune. We stayed at AC Resort for 5 nights in a pool cottage. Bed was comfy, sheets were...

Service was abysmal, and the staff didn't seem to have the slightest interest in helping with requests or general questions posed. Their English wasn't great. The rooms weren't maintained or kept, The towels were dirty. No wifi worked in the rooms and in the areas it did connect it was slow and lagged. The toilets were blocked and possibly leaked,...

I'm travelling with a friend so budgeting is a must, the AC resort was a little out of our budget as it was 2100 Baht a night.. We only stayed here one night which was probably best as the shower wasn't fully working and the toilet flooded. Not to mention the receptionist was very rude, she started serving other people...

Let me start of by saying DO NOT STAY HERE! This place is terrible and the only reason why we stayed was because it was free since we were diving. We actually stayed in two different rooms here because after completing the open water course we decided to continue and complete the advance course. In our first room it was...

I recently stayed here in a garden bungalow with a friend as part of our open water diving course. Starting with the positives- the setting of the hostel was really nice and it was very close to the beach, literally a minute walk through the restaurant. The problem was that everything at the resort felt incredibly run down and in...
