    Perfect place for specific clients ”

    Pros: thoughtful place perfect for the diving community, party goers and lazy couples that want to be close to the everything without walking too much. They care about the environment and the restaurant on the beach is great, we ate there everyday. Cons: these didn't bother us because we knew this going in. Very loud until midnight from the bar by the beach. Steep climbs to get to the hilltop rooms (we had garden view which is close to the beach and easy, but hard to know that unless you read comments before booking). A bit understaffed when we went to the restaurant, so takes time to get your order, esp when the place is full during obvious hours). Pools are used for diver training (it's a diving hotel :) but they usually have a free one for non divers available. Not many cons if you understand why. Great place, will def come back.

    Great Hill View Suite”

    The Suite is huge and offers big luxury! Just rent a scooter and you can ride in 2min down to breakfast/sea instead of walking down 7-8min. Not nice is - ALL pools are blocked full day (or 9.30AM to 5PM) by divers - at least one pool should stay reserved for swimming and no divers blocking everything. But well priority here seems to be on diving only. Breakfast was good quality for the freshly cooked food - but could be improved and a bit more fruits.

    Bans is ideal for traveling divers. They have everything you could possibly need and offer well priced dives and diving classes. Otherwise the accommodations are nice, the restaurants are great, the location is great, and the staff are all very helpful. We didn’t want to leave.

    It was a trek to our bedrooms. ”

    We got upgraded when checked in, which was nice but when we arrived at the bedroom we found a massive (massive) lizard in the bathroom press so we asked to swap to our original room, which we think was a nicer room. We extended our stay by 1 night and this was expensive so book in advance if you can. We did not have breakfast or dinner so unsure about the food. The bedrooms were nice and aircon was okay. The trek to the room was a mission. All uphill and upstairs but there was lovely scenery from the bedroom.

    We stayed in the ‘Jungle’ rooms. They are a 10 minute walk up the hill from reception and the beach. The walk is well worth it if you want new facilities away from the party scene on the beach at a great price.

    I stay at jungle house which on the hill side where is still on the construction and little bit difficult to go to main street.- The room doesn’t have telephone so I had to walk to the reception house and asked for cart service. Except that, it is very close to town the town, have good restaurants and diving or tour shop around them.

    Great Value for Money”

    The resort is absolutely huge! There are 3 amazing pools and one that's used mostly by those learning to dive. The rooms are huge and the bathroom is nice. It's quite hilly but quite easy to get around. It's quite central to everything and taxis aren't too expensive and neither is the food. Breakfast is filling too. The beach near the hotel isn't the best but you can take a taxi boat out to other bays where the beaches are much nicer. Overall it's a really good hotel and worth the money.

    Well established and growing resort with various kinds of accomodation in different buildings located from the middle of Sairee beach to jungle in the hills. Kind and helpful staff, 3 beautiful and clean pools, but sometime crowded by divers from diving school, stunning jungle garden, all you need at the lower part of resort, including shops, restaurant, disco. We stayed in the Jungle house at the top of the resort. Nice, tidy, quite luxurious rooms in the quiet part of resort. 10 minutes walking distance to lower part of resort, staff will kindly take you by golf cart there and back if you do not want walk. The only drawback is scrap-heap in the middle of resort. Other parts of resort are kept clean and tidy. Definitely recommended, good choice.

    I had the deluxe room garden view, 100%clean, in 1 week they changed twice the bedsheets, fresh towels every other day. It smelled so nice. The bathrooms are nothing special but the big balcony is wow! Cleaning service perfect, pool can't be used, the diving courses are taking place there, everybody was extremely nice. The restaurant is ok, fair prices and good food but I had better food on the island. The diving course was perfect, I had the best instructors, Neil and Andreas. Cool guys, helpful and answering all the questions. I ll definitely go back, I am In Love with the hotel and with the island.

    Great Place, great location ”

    We spent 3 nights at Bans resort. Our accommodation was up the hill which was away from the noise and good exercise. Room was clean and a beautiful view. The 3 pools were mainly used for scuba training which could be a pain. The bar below on the beach was great with live music and friendly expats. All in all a very chill environment, love Koh Tao. Will recommend this property. Make sure you are healthy if you are to walk up the hill a few times a day. If not make sure to ask for a room on the lower level of the property.

    Nice dive resort”

    Check in was good. They picked us up from the pier for free. We went for the diving. There seemed to be more people on course than fundiving so we had small groups with a dive leader and one of the days it was just us so that was cool. We found it a bit chaotic though and things weren't really explained to us as far as what to expect for our day out on the boat. The room itself was great. Big shower and garden view. Big beach towels and umbrella provided. The garden is beautiful. The wifi worked well in the room and at the restaurant. We couldn't get it to work at the pool. They have 3 pools. 2 are nice for lounging and swimming and one is for training. But when we went to the nice pool it was all taken up by people training. Also there were no cushions on the chairs so it wasnt very comfortable. The breakfast is pretty good. Can choose between thai or western. The location is perfect. Lots of good restaurants around. Our favourite was El Toro for both thai and western food.

    We got a upgrade and stay in a nice room called deluxe hilltop. It was quiet, a really nice room with a food view. Yes you have to walk a few minutes to the beach, but it's worth it. There are a lot of bars and restaurants, supermarkets and shops. A special thing for me is that this resort takes care of the nature! It's important and i like it how they do it without compromises.

    Beautifull room with nice balcony”

    Beautifull family room with a large balcony. Large hotel that spreads out over a large area. It is a long walk to the reception, breakfast etc. This could be located much more convenient for the newer rooms on the other side of the road. Also breakfast has different choices but these are strange combinaties and portioneren are too large. A lot of food is wasted because you either just don’t like It or It is too much! Good diving facilities

    Hotel directly at the sea with various types of rooms. The breakfast is huge, most of the employees are friendly. I would book this Hotel again, but would take a room on the hill. This is more quiet at night and next to the nice pool without divers. In addition they are cheaper.
