We stayed at Santhiya resort but came to Yao Yai Resort Restaurant daily. We really enjoyed the food and relaxed atmosphere. A good choice, reasonable price. Nice place to avoid Santhiya's crowd. Highly recommended!

Excellent rooms and best restaurant around, reasonable priced and it's tranquil. I really don't understand why some people write those horror reviews about this place, probably from competitors or black-mailing backpackers !. We had a wonderful stay, we ware practically on the beach, you don't have to walk or climb a mountain to get to the beach.

Our stay at this place was a real disappointment. While the beach and the view are indeed very nice, our bungalow was in a terrible condition and smelled like mold. We have never before experienced a more stubborn hotel manager and even though we booked four nights, we immediately fled after staying only one night. Confronted with the resort's poor... More

The stay almost ruined our vacation. We have never before met an unfriendlier hotel manager. Super rude and unprofessional. The bungalow smelled terribly moldy and non of the employees spoke any english. There are lots of other affordable accomodations on this beautiful island, don't repeat our mistake!

The staff has poor English.1/2 of the complex is just under construction. The beach is tidy,bud a few steps away tons of plastics. Sea murky, lots of floating garbage, jellyfish. Breakfast modest, but you can make coffee in the room. Resort half-full. Unlike many other resorts on Koh Yao you can swim even at low tide.

We were tempted by the lovely location, good prices and the closeness to Santhiya and the beer was indeed served in a very nice glass. However, we were unable to wait to sample the (apparently delicious) food that we had ordered. We had young children with us and after waiting for over half an hour asked how much longer our...

Hotel was only half-full in the middle of highest season. Hotel Manager is very unpolite and unfriendly. We had to leave after couple of days, just couldn't watch and hear him shouting to people and to us. Food was good and the rest of staff was friendly. If you don't mind holes in the walls and untidiness, this can be... More

The smal huts need a refurbishment. When it rained was the straw hut was built by very wet and everything was damp. Otherwise it was all one needed inside the cabin and a lovely terrace at sunset. The biggest problem was that the staff did not speak English. they can ask if you want coffee or tea, but understand nothing.... More
