Exceptional value with clean rooms and good staff

Rooms are very clean and well apointmented. Convenient location for exploring Kamala, Surin, and Bang Tao.
We had a lovely stay at the Taro Hotel. The place itself is quite small, but exceoptionally clean. There are 8 bungalow style rooms that are of 2 different sizes. If you stay 5 days or more, they will auotmativally give you the larger one. The other accommodations are larger rooms with kitchenettes. If you can spend the extra 1,000 baht per night, this is the way to go. Ask for the one on the ground floor closest to the pool. The pool itself is small and really only a plunge type for cooling off. There is no food offered at the hotel, but great options are close at hand. Highly recommended when on a tighter budget.
Restaurant Tip: If you are looking for some great Thai food at a reasonable price, try Popeyes. It is a short 5 minutes drive or 15 minute walk from Taro. Isaan style food that is simply delicious. Also, try Oh-La-La for a great breakfast and Grill Bill for an upscale BBQ experience. Both located close to Taro.

Location not great, small rooms but very friendly

Friendliness of staff
The rooms are very small and bathroom are average and our bathroom had the horrible sewerage smell that sometimes comes from inadequate plumbing in Asia. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The hotel is set back from the beach and action in the village part of town and is down a dingy driveway and has pretty bas surroundings. It's only 10 minutes walk to the beach and the action but I probably wouldn't stay here again when there is so much better accommodation near the beach
Hotel Feature Tip: Hard to find for taxi drivers, ask someone at the airport to translate the address to Thai for your driver and it should be ok

Lovely clean hotel, very friendly/helpful staff

Great rooms with a/c, tv, wifi, fridge and pretty big bathroom. Nice little pool. Located just off the main road so it's nice and quiet.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Taro Hotel after 3 weeks of travelling around Thailand. It was the perfect place to relax. Not too far from the beach (10-15 mins approx) although the walk did get a bit tedious towards the end of the week. Great places to eat nearby and a 7-11 just down the road. The pool was nice to have a dip in to escape the heat, there was never anyone else in it when we used it which was good as it may have been a bit cramped. All of the staff were really helpful, nothing was ever a problem for them and they have is lots of help and advice. We rented a motorbike for a couple of days which they organised and gave advice on places to go around the island. There were also coin slot washing machines right next to the hotel which is great for long stays. Overall it is a lovely hotel and good value for money! Would definitely recommend.
Restaurant Tip: Popeyes on the way to the beach serves very nice food... and its cheap!

Friendly staff with fabulous rooms.

Big rooms. Good bathroom. Quiet location. Fridge in room.
A new hotel with spotless rooms that are very spacious. Slightly away from main area but was ideal for me as nice and quiet. Plenty of good bars only 5 mins walk. Beach only a 10 minute stroll. Staff very friendly and helpful. Love having a fridge in my room.

Clean rooms, nice pool.

Peaceful, but still close to amenities.
This was a really great place to stay. Nice and quiet, but still close enough to shops and nightlife. I would recommend this hotel to budget travellers, couples and family with older children.

Off location and unfriendly staff

Clean, neat
The hotel is a little hard to find and there are no signs outside reception once you get there. No staff was around when I arrived and no number to call but eventually a man from the house across the street called the owner who later came down. There was no toilet paper supplied and the toilet did not flush.

Very nice and clean apartment!

Everything was very great, clean and fresh.
I can really recommend this hostel, it not in the big main street, in walk away. I jut stayed one night, the beed was a bit hard..that's the only negative!
Travel tip: Go to the end of the beach to the right, you'll find a surfersbar named skyla, it a very cool surfers bar in a tree! I loved it

home away from home

location, more than adequate amenities, hospitable owner/manager
we have been to phuket several times and had stayed in more popular areas (i.e. patong, surin, chalong, kata), so thought we go for a more quiet and relaxing break in kamala. as this was our first time, we didn't really know what to expect but we thought it would be an adventure. we arrived late in the evening and stayed at the bungalow room, which was small but adequate and comfortable. come morning we realized that the hotel was not full, hence we requested to see the studio room and asked for a possible upgrade. terry (owner/manager) was very accommodating and charged us a minimal (almost negligible) fee for an upgrade for the next two nights -- it was awesome! now the studio room was more than we had expected. you get a full kitchen in case you prefer to cook, which works really well for longer staying guests like most of our neighbors. the beds were a bit too firm for our taste but no biggie, the room was spacious and we get our own balcony facing the waterfall pool which is very relaxing by the way.
Restaurant Tip: Kamala is generally a muslim town and definitely more quiet than the likes of Patong, but you can still get beers/alcohol from the groceries (Tesco, Big C) and 7-11 that are scattered everywhere on the main road. Restaurant options are very local and authentic, which is exactly what we were looking for, but be warned that they are not very fancy. The best late-night noodle snack we had were from one of the side-walk cooking stalls on the main road, but we did get some very good Thai food from a local restaurant called Popeye's, which is right beside a really good massage place called Angel's. There is another Thai restaurant across Popeye's which is actually even better but I can't remember the name.
