Wonderful place, great location and super views from the Delux Hilltop Bungalow.”
I did my open water diving and had Anthony Griffiths as my instructor. He was amazing and made the experience enjoyable and memorable.

Amazing time at Bans!”
My friends and I stayed here in August 2017 and we really enjoyed this resort! We did not dive at this resort, but we did book a snorkeling day trip in the office and it was more than we could have expected! The property is huge and took us a day to get acquainted to where the pools were and how to get back to our hotel room. We had a room up the hill with an AMAZING view of the island. We enjoyed the location and were able to easily walk everywhere we went on our trip. We did rent a cot because there were 3 of us, which was only a mattress on the floor, but it was still plenty comfortable. The only negative...do NOT get the included breakfast, it was disgusting. We stayed for 4 days and only ate it once and chose to pay for breakfast elsewhere. BUT the restaurant on the property Darawan made up for it . We had the most wonderful experience for both dinner and breakfast here and I would highly recommend it to anyone whether they are staying in the resort or not.

Best location, great rooms!”
Super well located at the heart of Koh Tao, they offer every service you will need, diving classes, motorbike rentals, boat, laundry service... only thing I didn’t like was the food at their restaurant, not worth payment more for breakfast, there are a lot of restaurants around tho... rooms are nice, well decorated, spacious and clean.. WiFi sucks and 2 first days no hot water (looks like the water and energy supply is something with the island, not the hotel itself) would still recomend it!

Mixed Feelings”
First of all, the room I had was excellent! It was very comfortable, it had a great view, and the air con was good and the water hot! The Wifi was fine...no problem with the room. Ban's dive resort is huge!! To get to my excellent room, I had to literally hike uphill for about 2 kilometers, and once I was there, if I wanted something, I had to hike back down. Sometimes the staff will take you up in a golf cart, but they stop doing that at 10:00 I think...anyway, I might have been out later than than enjoying the island's night life. I went on 2 dives with their attached dive company, and they were some of the worst dives I have ever had! I have almost 200 logged dives, and these were just boring! I think they took me out with a bunch of beginning divers who were doing skills tests. Overall, I've been to Koh Tao a few times, and in the future, I will stay at a smaller hotel and dive with a different dive company. Ban's has a good idea, but they've taken it waaaay too far!

Very good”
We were 3 people, one of them being a senior person who is not extremely fit. This place is bigger than the pictures show and had slopes which were tough for the senior to handle easily. They did have golf carts around but they didn’t let us use them unless we were checking in or out with luggage. There are 2 parts to the resort, one half is beach side & other half is across a main road on a hill. The beach side has one small pool which seems to be constantly in use by diving groups. The hill side had 3 pools of which I saw only 2. Of these two, one seems to be used by diving groups all the time. Hence its very irritating if you are not diving. The restaurant (where complimentary breakfast is served) is on the beach with good food & great view. It also turns into a party place at night and is one of the two which is open till 2 am - Great if you want to party, but not so much if your room is close to the beach & you want to sleep. Rooms are good but bathroom walls are very thin.

Great hotel and great location! Their restaurant is also really good but I think the waiters were really rude except Win from Burma. He was really cool! The pools there are really good and big but there is also a lot of diving practice but it's not a big deal.

Beautiful property up the hill and pools. The diving was the best we have had so far. The reception staff and dive staff were super friendly but the other staff seemed to really dis-like tourists. Other then that I would highly recommend the place. Beach front with a cool atmosphere.

Will return, probably twice more.”
Great place, location, staff, services, and dining. My only critiques, the dining staff appear indifferent at first. It’s likely because of a constant stream of unfriendly or insensitive guest who just make demands or expect too much. After day two, the servers started to warm up and pay more attention to us. More importantly. Please make better arrangements for vegan guests. It was a struggle trying to explain to servers my girlfriend couldn’t have dairy on her granola or butter on her toast. Overall, still my recommended stay on the island.

We have been doing courses at the diving school and paid 500 baht for the standard room. We had mold on the ceiling and the shower was awful. If your doing diving course at ban’s (Which was great) you should some place else.
