Not too shabby

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jan 24, 2013
Stayed here whilst diving in Koh Tao. Upgraded from the fan room to the villa. The room was clean and nice with an open roof shower. Probably doesn't help with the mosquitos though.
At night it is loud, but have to expect that when staying so close to Sairee Beach. If you want it quiet I'd stay at the other end of the island.
Waitstaff were a bit blunt in the resteraunt but with that many options for Thai and western food around the place why eat in!
New swimming Pool currently being built.

Reviewed January 20, 2013

We arrived at wind beach on 3 jan 2013. When we arrived we was told we wasn't booked in to stay ( we booked June 2012) we emailed ahead 3 days before to confirm but no replay came back! After showing proof of booking we was given a room in the new build and would be moved to the deluxe room the next day. The resort is in the middle of a large noisy building site ( no pre warning!!) our first room was new and uncleaned but ok till 3 am!!! Constant knocking/banging on doors till 6am so no sleep!! Breakfast in very basic.We moved to our second room which on appearance was nice, but you can hear everything said/done in the next door room. The deluxe room are closer to the beach so till at least 4 am you can sing word for word to the music from the bars on the beach!! Still no sleep!!!! We brought bug spray for the amount of mozzies and bugs in the room! The staff at this hotel are the most rude arrogant people I have ever encountered whilst on holiday, they blanked my husband even when he said good morning to the girl who was stood next to him. The staff who are in the reception and office in the restaurant are very rude and stuck up who make the poor breakfast staff feel on edge. Overall I would never return and would never recommend.

Room tip: Don't book this hotel!!!

My wife and I stayed in one of the bungalows here for a few nights in April. Our room was decently clean and well kept but you certainly don't get what you pay for. You do get free wifi so that's a bonus. This resort sits on a sunset facing beach so the view is great.

I'm generally not a big fan of Koh Tao. It's overpriced and overrun with too many tourists, especially after Full Moon parties on nearby Koh Phangan. I haven't been diving here yet but i did go snorkeling and I was not very impressed. In my opinion there is far better diving and snorkeling on the Andaman Sea side. Phang Nga puts Koh Tao to shame.

If you are going to visit Koh Tao this resort is not a bad option, though i'm sure you could do better.

This was probably the worst place we've stayed in all of Thailand. The room was not very clean and could use some definite renovating. The staff weren't very friendly and the restaurant wasn't open I'm guessing because they are building a pool beside it. Seems unnecessary considering they actually have a great location on the beach. It was just kind of dumpy.

The worst part of our stay here at wind beach resort is the ignorant rude staff, in particular the older man on the reception desk. As backpackers we wern't expecting 5* quality but this was a really terrible experience. I hands down recommend for everyone to go stay elsewhere. The only redeeming factor is its location but as there are plenty of places in the same area you shouldn't struggle to find somewhere else

We booked an air-conditioned room online, and came to find a room with only a fan, with no AC rooms available. Having paid in cash right before getting our room key, the girl at the front said we could get our money back if we wanted to get a room in another hotel. Finding a room for the same night wasn't easy, but we did, yet when we came back they refused to give us our money. The guy who was now at the front (probably hotel manager or owner) was extremely rude, and despite being told that we did not get the room we booked, and that we were promised, before booking another hotel room, that we could get a refund, he refused to deliver and resorted to yelling and blaming us.

After way too long, we got a partial refund (which was not worth the time spent arguing). The whole experience was very unpleasant, and I would definitely never go back there. While most of the staff seemed to be rather nice and helpful, it was that owner/manager who really made us not ever go near the place again.
