One of best budget stays ever”
Just 2 mins walk from the pier. Market starts right outside the hotel. Being so close to the town, one would expect it be bustling outside, but to our surprise it was really calm & pleasant outside. Clean beach just few steps walking from the room. And the restaurant is also great (a bit pricey but still worth the taste)
Convenient but tired room”
Conveniently located just 2 minute walk from main Ferry terminals but lacking in a few basic essentials - only 1 bedside table, minimal tea and coffee facilities with broken kettle and plug socket not near kettle. Bed although large was very hard and uncomfortable - neither of us slept because of this. For the room rate we would of expected much better facilities.
Koh Tao Stay - Simple Beautfil Location”
Me and my Thai girlfriend loved the location, staff where very good at the Villa and room was a really good size with aircon balcony overlooking the sea, room always kept clean. Would 100% stay again when we visit the Island. Five minute walk from the ferry don't get conned like we did in getting taxi for 300 baht. A great restaurant footsteps away, the Pranee's Kitchen wonderful food at excellent low prices. We visited Saweedee Bar which was not to far away around 20 minute walk would recommend to everyone as well good beer bar. Anyone wanting a massage the Massage Station is 5 minutes walk away best massages I have had in Thailand. Not sure why the Island has a bad rep as we had no issues it was simply beautiful, meeting wonderful and friendly Thai people all the time taking good care of us.
A very neat, clean, comfortable, reasonably priced, friendly and ideally situated hotel.”
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for three nights. It is located about 200 metres from the busy ferry port. It is located right on the beach, close to restaurant and shops, and offers great walks on the beach or on the nearby bath that runs passed numerous resort cafes and shops, to Sai Ri beach. We were seamlessly checked in by a thoroughly charming young lady and shown to our room, which was far better and far better equipped than I expected for the price that we had paid. We also had a great balcony with a good view of the sea. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, and the room was very quiet given the close proximity to the port. We would stayed here again for sure.
Great location! ”
The room was very clean, right on the beach, a few meters away from the « action » and steps away from the pier. Would definitely recommend, we had a wonderful time. The only downside is that it can get a little noisy in the morning and at night because of the restaurant next to the hotel but the music stops around 11pm and the restaurant doesn’t open until 9:30am. The staff was super helpful and available.
Good location but noisy”
Conveniently located in Mae Haad, but it was quite noisy : facing a restaurant, A/C noise all night from the next hotel and construction work in the day. Would recommend if you are not too sensitive to noise.
Great location and comfortable”
A bit of noise from new construction opposite, and can get a bit of noise from the pier nearby, but, staff were very friendly and it is only a 2 min walk to anywhere you need in Mae Haad. Right on the beach so you can view the sunset each evening and gets a nice cool breeze through your room.
Central Location ”
Stayed 5 nights. I'd say slightly above average price, but was pretty comfortable. Nice shower, basic cable TV and balcony. The only negative was noisy neighbors on two nights...not sure even thick walls would cover that.
Hotel could be reached by walking from the port and located in a center of city which very convenience to find a food and convenience store is just next block. You could easily go out to catch a boat for diving trip in a minute since pier is only 5 min walk. Free WiFi service. No pool but it doesn't matter to me since I'm going out for diving all day.
Nice clean rooms next to the beach and walking distance from the ferry and good restaurants.”
The rooms are very spacious and clean, with nice balconies. It’s right next to the beach. You can walk here from and to the ferry so you can skip past the hordes of taxi drivers. Two of the best restaurants on Koh Tao are in and right next to the building. It’s a bit of a walk to Sairee but doable. There’s no swimming pool. Biggest downside was the airco was pointed right at the bed, so we had to turn it off at night.
We stayed 4 nights. Great location for us, close to the pier and our dive shop. There were a couple great restaurants around so we didn’t have to go far for food. Room was clean and comfortable. If I’m being particular, the only negative was that there wasn’t any hand soap or face clothes. Loved it, would absolutely stay here again.
Close to the ferry terminal, right next to the beach”
This place is clean, spacious, and very close to lots of what you'll need on Koh Tao. I had originally booked for five nights, but because of sea conditions the ferry service had been cancelled and I was stranded on Koh Phangan, where I had to book accommodation. While Ananda Villa is certainly not responsible for the ferry schedule or the weather conditions, they were not willing to refund the night I couldn't stay because of the delay. I tried to explain my situation, but the level of English comprehension (and my level of Thai) were pretty lacking. Other than this issue the stay was okay, and as I said, the location is pretty great. I would suggest taking a good look at the ferry schedules and weather conditions before coming to Koh Tao, as the seas can be unpredictable, and travel plans can change.
Really pleasant hotel in great location”
We had a ground floor room overlooking the sea. Nice to sit out on balcony and only quick walk to the sea when you need to cool off and have a swim. Great room and room service, very clean. Lovely friendly staff. The new build looks great. Highly recommend.
It was simply terrific. Perfectly located close to restaurants, shops, the pier and taxi boats and also a short walking distance from Sairee and it's buzzing fun. In 25 days of travel, it's was easily the most neat and clean hotel we have been in Thailand and also gave us a fair and great value for the money. I would have stayed longer in Koh Thao had I known it was so good.
It is a very nice hotel, with big rooms which are very clean. Although it may not be the perfect location (such as sairee beach) the island is very small so it is really easy to move through, specially if you rent a motorbike. I really recommend this hotel!
Comfortable and quiet”
Pleasant place to stay. Large, comfortable room and bathroom, very well maintained. Even though it is by the pier, it is not noisy. Good sea view. 12/15 minutes walk to more lively Sairee Beach, but nice room and peace/quiet tips the balance.
Great stay, avoided all the touts upon arriving at the pier as you could walk to the place straight from the pier. Quiet place. One night we had a rowdy large crowd stay next door. When we complained to reception they sorted the issue quick smart. VERY helpful receptionist who always gave advice, etc. Room was spacious and clean. Nothing to complain about. As others have stated, the noise the ferry makes when embarking/disembarking could be heard but this was a minor issue for us (we're heavy sleepers).
Nice hotel close to ferry, shops and diving center”
The room was comfortable and large with a nice bathroom, good aircon and friendly staff. The hotel is in short walking distance from the pier and directly on the beach. You have a nice ocean view from the terrace and even from the bed when you stay in the first room. Because it is so close to the ferry pier there are many many boats directly in front of the beach and you can swimm only in a roped-in area and the longboats are driving around there. But therefore there are a lot of shops, restaurants and diving centers close by. Internet is sometimes slow. It is perhaps not the perfect place if you are here just for a beach and swimm vacation but if you look for a centrally located nice hotel close to everything it is just perfect. We stayed for a week and had a very pleasant stay here. It is good value for the money.
Excellent service, extended the stay by 4 days”
Excellent service from friendly staff, reception helped when DTAC provider went down for my phone, she gave me hers to phone wife who had been worried due to no contact for two days. The restaurant opposite "Pranee Kitchen" has comprehensive menu and I had no tummy bugs from the food there throughout the stay. Extended stay by 4 days and was happy to stay there longer.
Ok hotel, great restaurants near by”
While the office is on the beach, not all rooms are. Ours was not, and that was disappointing. However, it was a nice detached room, like a one room cottage, with great a/c. The beach by the hotel is not ideal for sunbathing or swimming, but good beaches and amazing food is near by.
