We were happy with our initial welcome and check in. We were picked up from the pier free of charge for our initial journey, thereafter charged too and fro from the hotel which became expensive. The location of the hotel is on the opposite side of the island, the area being quite remote but having fantastic snorkeling opportunities.. We stayed for a full week but in reality around 3 or 4 days would suffice in the hotel. The staff were friendly but there was often miscommunication due to little spoken Thai or English. The food was average and the set breakfast menu was limited with only instant coffee.The staff promptly solved simple issues that arose in the room such as fixing the tv etc, but there was little to be done about the continually blocked toilet or the ants that we shared the bathroom with. The staff tried to make our stay special and made an effort to do so but in the end this was soured by a disagreement on the payment of a bill that we settled at the beginning of our stay but we were then billed for close to departure. Future visitors to this hotel would be wise to ensure that all bills are paid for through the main reception and that they request a receipt upon payment to avoid any pilfering that may or may not happen.

Their staff was very friendly and helpful, the restaurant served good food and the pool area is also very nice with a view to the beach. We had a villa, and it was really cool to live in a jungle-like environment with geckos, squirrels and other animals.

Tanote Bay area is calm and relaxed and definitely worth a visit! Take your swimming shoes with you since the seabed has some rocks and bits of coral.

Travelling with my family (we are 2 adults and a 10 year old child), we chose a cottage with a sea view for a few days. The main reason was to stay close to the Calypso diving club in Tanote bay. We know that in Thailand, it is not uncommon to be proposed a one bed room for a 3 member family (2 adults and a child) : they sleep in the same bed. It already happened that a hotel either added an extra bed or unfolded a sofa bed. On other occasions we had a queen or a king size bed and it was not no problem. When we arrived at Montalay beach resort, we were given a small bungalow with a very nice view, accessible by a very long staircase and located on the other side of the road from the main building. But above all, in addition to the small size of the room, we had a 1m40 bed, which was a little tiny for a 4-night stay. In my opinion, it was a bungalow for a couple which should certainly not be proposed when making a reservation for 1 couple and 1 child. Even less at the price of 100 euros per night!!! It is a quite expensive price in France and even more for Thailand. Fortunately the reception staff kindly agreed to change our room (at no extra charge of course 😉). We moved to a much bigger bungalow, with a king size, closer to the sea, and a few steps from the restaurant. We really appreciated the way they solved the problem. Thanks to their efficiency and kindness we had an excellent stay: the buffet breakfast is perfect, the staff members are all nice and attentive, Tanote Bay is calm and perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving. Eventually, if you are not a scooter fan, there is a shuttle service at specific times which proposes return trips to the pier for 200 baths, which allows you to go to Koh Tao center.

Hotel is nicely located at Tanote Bay, which offers great snorkeling and diving opportunities. We stayed in the Deluxe room, which was big and nice. It was missing some chairs on the balcony and space to store clothes. The view from the room is really nice and the staff is very friendly. Prices at the restaurant are high but you have other places where you can eat nearby. The swimmingpool is a plus.

Not recommended for families with small children. The pool is cold and the children's area is very small and pretty broken. The rest of the pool is up to 2.8m deep for divers. The beach is made up of coral fragments, hardly any sand. Went to Sairee Beach with the children. We stayed in more comfortable and cleaner 3-star resorts on the trip.

The transfer, the breakfast. the location, early check in and the room view were great. Hoverer, there have been multiple issues that made my stay disappointing, like broken shower, broken window, dirty napkin under the bad, broken matrasse, dirty kettle, no conditioner and loud fan. The room is very small, too hot, the bathroom is shared with another room and I could hear the neighbours talking on the room next to me. There is a beautiful big window, but it faces the neighbours.
I enjoyed the territory and the location. it is perfectly close to the beach and pretty.

Everything was perfect, the staff (nice and helpfull), the rooms (very nice and clean), the site (access to the reef !!), the beach bar (good food and drink). The beach is cool, clean and quiet (specially in the morning and evening). There are several good restaurants near the beach you can also go. We are used to 5 stars hôtel and our Montalay stay was really good, you can go there with no doubt.

We stayed here during the renovations so a few things like the pool restaurant were closed. But the staff did everything to compensate for this. I think after the renovations this place will be superb. The beach is a small paradise with perfect snorkling waters. The cliff jump is very nice to do. Rent a motorbike to visit the busy shopping streets on the other side of the Island.

This place exceeded our expectations.
The double room was spacious, clean and the decor was lovely. Fresh bath and beach towels provided each day. The maids did a great job and the room was consistently cleaned.
Free breakfast was great.
The staff can’t do enough for you here. They really made our stay special as it was my partners birthday during our stay.
The bar are cleaning staff are incredible.
Restaraunt food was also great, big portions and very tasty.
The beach in which the resort in situated on is beautiful and quiet. The pool area is also lovely.
Really no bad aspects to our stay here. We loved everything.

There isn't, when I was there a waiter called a frien that does a boat tour around the Island. You can book this tours is the city center, but is quite far (15 min in a open truck back). There are also restaurants in the city center which are good.
