Not the best customer service
All of rates are based on a single person basis. With 2 people booking the diving class there was no option for a discount/upgrade unless we wanted to sleep in different rooms. Not willing to negotiate

Short stay
The diving was great & the diving instructors really friendly. Found the reception staff to be unfriendly & ignored is continuing to have their own conversations for some time while serving us Found the resort to be very dark at night time as our room was not in the main resort had to walk up the hill felt unsafe at times & having to use the torch on phones to get back to the room.

Good location
Very close to beach and restaurants. Nice room but have ants. Although have three pools, two are used as diving training pools frequently and the other one is located far from the beach side section of the hotel. Staffs are nice

Decent for the price
We stayed here after a week on Koh Tao staying elsewhere. We wanted to dive and Ban's is the best place to do so. It is located close to many restaurants and shops. The Ban's Resort Restaurant was good and the staff was very nice. Make sure to get a mango daiquiri, they're delicious!

Stunningly beautiful
Super happy and satisfied with our stay at Ban's. Big family of seven, three teenagers tried scubadiving for the first time and were stoked. Great instructor, safety and gear. We had a deluxe Hill top villa a bit of a walk up the hills with two toddlers but surrounding so beautiful with green gardens and buildings a long with the ocean view made it worth it big time. Perfect location at Sairee beach with bars, restaurants and small shopping. Loved it and will definitely come back. Stayed in June and even though tide seasons, you can swim at the beach.

Nice hotel, staff don't care
Our AC broke in the middle of the night resulting in a sleepless night. We contacted reception in the morning and they offered to send somebody to fix it which didn't really help us. A chap came a few hours later and established the AC was not cold enough and said he would come back to fix it but never reappeared. Given the scale of the hotel and the amount of money they are making, any gesture would have been nice but the staff just didn't care if we were happy or not. Providing you get what you pay for, the hotel is fine but next time I would definitely stay somewhere I feel cared for.

Absolutely love bans!!!!!
We had the most amazing time with beautiful views and good distance to the sea and bars. The staff were amazing and we loved every minute of it. I want to go back for sure.

Bad customer service, terrible location
I was told at the reception that my room is "a bit far", and it turned out the shack was located 30 min walk away from the reception! No transportation is provided except at the time of check in. No phone to contact hotel staff in case of need. Basically you need to walk 30 min through the middle of unpaved wilderness to reach the closest convenience store and even to the reception in case something happens e.g. AC broke, the shower doesn't have hot water, wifi doesn't work etc. And the temperature is about 35 Celsius. It's super hot and you could faint after 30 min walk. I complained to the receptionist and she argued me back as if it was my fault. Eventually I was moved to Ban's Avenue, which is closer to the center of the city, but that place had pretty much no customer service either. The receptionist is rarely there, some don't speak English, and there's no room cleaning service. It's also noisy almost every night as it's in front of a big bar. No more Ban's!
