Ko Yao Yai is a beautiful place! Yao Yai Resort is in a good location (nice beach, close proximity to other resorts and a few small shops). Unfortunately, the members of staff don't speak English and communication was very hard. The language barrier can be a problem when you rely on transport bookings, want to amend an order from a...

We booked Yao Yai resort for 4 nights but extended our stay because we enjoyed our stay so much! This hotel is located on the "best beach" side of the island which isn't effected too much by the tides. Also, it's the only hotel with sea view bungalows. Hotel has a laid back, relaxed atmosphere which reflects small island life... More

Our package included pickup from our hotel in Phuket, boat to Yao Yai, 2 nights accom, day trip (island hopping), boat trip to Krabi and transfer to our hotel... More

It took some time to get to this resort but it was worth it! The huts are right on the beach. The room was clean and adequate. Nothing spectacular. We had a problem with our tv but the owner took care of the problem right away by giving us his personal TV! The shower was cool. There was a nice... More

This resort would have been acceptable at maybe $30 a night not $80 this is why…… My Partner and I arrived at this so called resort at 3:15pm to only find out not only was the room not ready despite check-in available from 1pm but the room we booked on booking.com was nothing like the room we were taken to....

The Island is very remote, we stayed for 2 nights which was perfect for us. It was clean, friendly staff, great food! Nothing to complain about really, you get what you pay for. The place next door is about 3 x as much which seems crazy

Spent 10 days here over Christmas and New Year, had a magical time. The staff were lovely, rooms comfortable and the beach location was just paradise. Saw the most amazing sunsets, ate delicious food which was good value considering the island location, and had basically a dream holiday. The place retains some down to earth Thai charm and is a...

The location is beautiful right at the beach. The island has a nice laid back atmosphere (not too touristy) which I like. De beach bungalow was fine, just a little small maybe (and a bit basic) We arranged a trip over the island with a taxi which was really nice, we went to a school, rubber plantation etc. All the...

I almost gave it three stars because it is a bargain, but thought again about everything. The biggest problem: The management asked us to check out of our rooms at 10:30 instead of 12 because the next people had arrived. My friend was approached and they insisted that she leave, so she didn't know what else to do and agreed.... More

Rooms mouldy and manager will lie about the smell and it's cause. We tried three rooms and they all stank. Beach wonderful but you don't have to stay at this dump to use it. Stay on the sunrise side of this island but beware development going on in a few places so it's won't be unspoilt for very much longer.... More
