              lovely hotel, great service”

              service, room decorated, reasonable price, near by the pier and also near by the beach

              I've been stayed at the Ananda Hotel for a week as I had to finished my scuba diving course from the Master Divers and I can just walk from Ananda to the master diver shop in about 5-10 mins.. also a lot of nice restaurant around. which mean you don't have to get rip off by the taxi all the time.. it might not look posh but its clean and got a big rain shower.. the bed is comfy enough, you can also hang your clothes at the big balcony as well.. if you are looking for a nice friendly service, clean, room is not so small with a fair price I'd recommended this hotel.. hope my review could help.. thanks Agoda for a great deal.

              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.

              rooms. staff.
              none.

              Ananda Villa is only one minute walk from Lompraya ferry port in Mae Haad so no taxi was needed. Room had very large double bed and was clean. Balcony with view back to town. No eating facilities but very good restaurant 10 yards from hotel. Although it is classed as beach front, the proximity to the port would be a little off-putting for relaxing on the beach. Mae Haad itself was nice little place although all bars were shut by 11 oclock which I found strange.

              Close to the Pier

              The bungalow was clean, comfortable with plenty of room. The location of Ananda Villa is very convenient just 100 yards from the Pier, and also a short walk away from most of the shops/restaurants. The is also a very nice restaurant right next to the Villas that serve excellent, affordable thai food. We will stay here again next time on Koh Tao.

              Perfectly located and very comfortable

              we loved this place so much we book and extra few days. our room was lovely, clean, had a cute balcony and great view of the beach which is all of 15 meters away. the staff were very friendly and helpful. the location was perfect (3 minutes’ walk from the ferry), we were right in the middle of the mae haad and sairee beach (the 2 main bays) so it was easy enough to walk over the hill and go for a swim at sairee beach then wander back. mae haad definitely had the better places to eat, but sairee beach was great place to go for a drink on the beach

              Friendly staff, nice room and convenient for ferry

              Grat location if you need the early ferry or are diving with an operator in Mae Haed. The staff were helpful and the room was clean an more comfortable than the 3 others in this price range I have used in Koh Tao. Quiet sepite proximity to the port. Only negatives were that the douuble room I booked was not available (I was switched to a twin) and that the Internet was very erratic.

              Location in town and the quality of the room/ incl. bathroom

              The Villa is a 2 min walk from the ferry pier and well located in the main town of Mae Haad with plenty of shops and restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful, letting me use their computer to fix a problem with my iphone. 15min walk to the more 'happening' spot of Sairee Beach, with bars on the beach and more restaurants.

              Location

              We loved our stay at Ananda!! We stayed for 3 nights on our short trip to the island and wanted to stay forever. The rooms are clean and pretty with a dvd machine ( you can rent dvds from a shop down the road for cheap). The restaurant (Pranee's kitchen) is the best value for money, I would recommend it anytime! They have film viewings every evening and make a delicious pineappel shake. The staff are friendly and helpful at all times. Ananda is close to the pier and town without being disturbed by the noise and people. It is also walking distance from Mr J's ( the all round shop for everything you need - nice secondhandbooks). So all in all, excellent!! I will stay here everytime!

              Clean, helpful staff, close enough to pier not to take a taxi.

              we stayed at the ananda villa with the intension of diving with crystal dive school. we found out that it was only a 20m walk along the beach which was a massive bonus. the room was clean, well equipped and was a perfect base in order to be at the dive school at 7am and close to the town centre for evening meals. the ananda staff were more than helpful when organising taxi's and ferry tickets. they were also very happy to leave our bags at reception after we had checked out in order for us to get one more dive in before catching the ferry. the ananda villa is great value and perfect if you want a place to stay that isn't going to be shared with other diving enthusiasts.

              ananda villa was great -- it was pretty basic accommodation but that was what we had paid for. the service was very good - when we arrived we found that the air conditioning wasn't working and when we went to let them know they apologized profusely and brought an expert in to fix it for us. it was super close to where the ferry comes in so it wasn't a long walk with luggage and we didn't need to tuk tuk to get to our accommodation. we had a great time on koh tao - it was quite touristy but the diving was great

              Good value bungalow near the pier”

              Close to the pier, good restaurant

              Ananda is 2-3 minutes walk from the ferry terminal and in walking distance to the Mae Haad village. Sairee which is the centre of all nightlife and has more shops, bars and restaurants is a 20 minute walk away on the path next to the guesthouse. Ananda is a collection of a few buildings. The main building by the beach which you see on the websites is where all the higher end (1500 Baht in low season) rooms are. Then just up a short path surrounded by vegetation are a handful of bungalows. I think there are two A/C which are larger one of which we stayed in, two smaller fan bungalows and one large building housing two rooms on a terrace. Our bungalow was 1000 Baht booked through Agoda and quite nice though slightly dark because the two windows were fitted with mosquito nets and the area has many trees. It was perfectly fine and when we asked to extend our stay for another two nights, we were beaten by Agoda and so had to move. The internet is only available in the main building or the (good and reasonably priced) restaurant, Pranee's Kitchen. Our bungalow was never serviced in the two nights we were there but they gave us toilet roll when we asked for it. To be honest I did expect service to be included in the price and was slightly disappointed. The only other problem was the noise at night. First night wasn't so bad but obviously a quarrelling couple live behind the bungalow. Last night they were shouting for hours and throwing large objects out of their balcony. Today, we move to another bungalow the other side of the ferry terminal which we checked out this morning and though they are not on Agoda (and perhaps for this reason) they are 20% cheaper and larger.

              This hotel is in a great location. When you get off the ferry in Mae Had make a left and walk 2 short blocks then you are there. There is a restaurant right outside if you get hungry. Motorbikes to rent right on the main street. The receptionist was extremely helpful and accommodating. She was very helpful and knowledgeable. We booked a boat trip to Koh Nang Yuan from her. I would come back again for the location and amazing receptionist. I left some scuba gear at the hotel (Doh) and she put it on the cargo boat for me to Koh Samui. Amazing.

              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.

              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.

              Honesty, no hassle whatsoever and a great price

              This is a comment I put up on Facebook recently, I think it says a lot about my experience at Ananda Villa... Last night I had a meal in the restaurant near my room and it was really busy... I had finished and there were people waiting so I quickly vacated my table to let a couple sit down to eat - but in my rush, my wallet dropped to the floor. It was an hour before I realized that I had lost it and went back to the restaurant to ask them. The couple that had taken my table had found it, handed it in and the restaurant owner returned it to me with all the cash and credit cards still there... Amazing!

              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.

              My trip to Koh Tao was a diving trip, hence I would not use my time at the hotel. Therefore I booked a fairly cheap hotel as I only needed a bed, aircon and a nice little hotel. My last diving trip to Koh Tao I picked a different hotel which costed me the double. The expensive hotel was nearly as good as this one hence I will surely book this hotel for my next diving trip to Koh Tao. Good value for money.

              This hoteel is a short walk from the ferry and many restaurants and shops.

              The Ananda is a good choice for travellers wanting convenience and a nice hotel. The hotel is but a short walk from the ferries making it particularily attractive to those wanting to avoid the taxis (4X4 trucks). It is right on the beach and close to lots of good shopping, food stalls and reasonable ocean front restaurants. When you want to swim, walk over to Sai Ree beach on a paved walkway (about 10 min stroll). If you are a twenty something party person then maybe this is not for you. If not, give it a try, you will like it.
