    Lovely place, room was a little tired but they gave us a free upgrade to a lovely bungalow. Very spacious and yards from the beach and pool. Staff were very friendly. In a nice part of the island well away from the noisy bars and boy racers on the main beach! Would definitely stay here again!

    It was a great place to stay and the staff were wonderful ”
    The rooms (I stayed in a bungalow) need major upgrading. I felt like my room was built in the 1970's. For the price I expected a nicer quality room but the location couldn't be beat. I just think I wouldn't stay there again for the price I paid unless the rooms had a major overhaul.

    Excellent resort”
    There are actually two resorts for Koh Tao resort. We stayed at the one on the hill. The room was big and the view by the Swimming pool was amazing! We went out for diving very early in the morning and we could not make the time for breakfast. The resort sent the sandwiches to us the night before. They do charge for the late check out so if you don't want to pay extra, you need to leave before 11am.

    The hotel is 10 mins away from the pier which is very easy to travel around. There is taxi service from hotel to everywhere. The privet beautiful beach is impressive. This should be the place for honeymoon or for relaxation rather than party.

    Best Value for Hotel Ever !!”
    Many Nice Features of this hotel.
    What more to say about this hotel except that its the BEST !!. For the budget we paid for we get to enjoy all the facilities of this hotel as it has many zones , the Beach zone, The mountain view zone and the paradise zone. The pool at paradise zone was magnificent. The beach at koh tao resort beach zone was amazing as well as it has perfectly calm waters no waves yet its in close proximy to the fresh water pool which makes it simply ideal for both likings. The food at the restaurant was also nice n so are the waiters and waitresses. I have to say this would be a hotel we wish to stay once more if we ever come back again

    Great roon, good service, good location”
    Nice clean room; resort can organize boat trips, taxis etc; good restuarant
    we started off in a "luxury room" at the beach zone. still good value compared to other resorts i've been to in thailand and great room for 2 young kids - big bedroom with 2 double beds, separate living room, big balcony with jacuzzi looking onto the swimming pool and beach, well-fitted with fridge, 2 large tvs, dvd player etc. the beach right at the resort is not the best - quite thin, no shade to sit down for the day, not such good snorkeling. but you can borrow a kayak from the resort and paddle just a few minutes to the next bay, "freedom beach", where you find lovely trees to sit under, great sand for the kids to play and excellent snorkeling. the resort can also organize a long-tail boat day-trip where they take you in your own boat all around koh tao island to the various snorkeling spots, stop for lunch and get back late in the afternoon - reasonably priced and well worth doing. after 4 nights at the beach zone, we moved for the last 2 nights to the "paradise zone". this is the same resort but a newer building at the top of a hill, about 15 minutes walk or a free pick-up truck service from the sea. similarly nice, spacious room, with stunning views of the island and beaches from the balcony jacuzzi. also another swimming pool and restaurant up here. restaurants were quite reasonable, both up at the paradise zone and down on the sea front - good breakfasts and seafood dinner, including a very nice barracuda steak from the bbq.

    lovely resort, great beach”
    location
    The staff were very helpful - we originally booked for just one night but upon asking to stay on our room had been rebooked so they moved us to a beach front bungalow at no extra charge! The resort is at the end of the island and much quieter than the pier end - the bay and beach are beautiful, the water is a bit cloudy for snorkelling but you can go on boat trips. The restaurant has wonderful food but if you want something a bit less expensive it is just a very short wander to other restaurants.

    Nice hotel with good service”
    basic but big room, good view and friendly staff
    This resort is not on the main Sairee beach which is a nice change but is fairly quiet with not a lot to do (perfect for some). We stayed in the 'Paradise Zone' which had a fantastic view of Shark Bay and Sai Nuan Beach. Our room was big and clean although the air-con was fairly weak. Staff were friendly and facilities like free shuttle were great. Breakfast not being included and being charged for 'free water' upon checkout was a little annoying but no big deal. Would suggest staying in the 'Beach Zone' unless you want peace and quiet where the 'Paradise Zone' would be perfect.

    This hotel is just OK for me. the room that I stayed was not really good as I expected from the pictures. The phone is not provided in the room (Superior) when I tried to call them to get the lights fixed so I had to walk. Moreover, the room is not that clean, the toilet is just ok, well when I took the shower in the morning, I couldn't close the shower (It was broken). However, the staff are great and polite.

    Outdated hotel, but nicely build on excellent location. If you are in the right part”
    The hotel consists of 2 hotels. A beach hotel and a seperate hotel on top of the cliff. This was not clear to me when i booked. We were on the cliff which has a beautifull view from the restaurant, but you have to take the resortbus to your room everytime you forget something. I hated the room which wasvery dark and had one window that did not overlook aircons from other rooms. It cost us over 5000 baht per night, so badvalue for money.Luckily we could change to a cheaper roomafter 2 days(no refund). This room was at thebeach koh tao resort and was just great! Beautifull balcony with couch and hottub for my son right on thebeachnext to the pool.so what to write in the review. I didnot like the koh tao pinnacle resort ,but would recommend the kohtao beach resort. Both bookable under kohtao resort. Forboth hotels the bay is just excellent. Beautifull and full ofnice places to eat(dont eat at the hotel). They also pick you up from the boat free of charge, so look for their sign.

    We have stayed for 9 nights in this resort and this was our first visit to this resort. We have visit Koh tao for many times and we are a huge fan of this island. The resort has a beautiful view on shark island and you can also see the other islands. The people in the resort are really friendly and willing to help you during your stay. Swimming pool is with fresh water and not with sea water what we had in other resorts on the island.

    Stunning view, nice staff and room”
    The resort was beautiful. Staffs are very helpful and friendly. Although the resort locates pretty far from the pier, they provide free shuttle bus once a day. Apart from that they'll charge THB 50 /person/trip which we consider reasonable. Check out time is 11am sharp. Though you can leave luggage at the concierge and take a shower at the pool bathroom. Lastly, don't miss a breakfast with the stunning view at the balcony!!

    Koh Tao resort was reallylovely. I booked the paradise zone not realizing it was basically at the top of the mountain and I was expecting beach front. The taxi to take you down the driveway was extremely helpful although I was caught out trying to get back up after 10pm! The pool was gorgeous and the staff were very helpful! Would definitely recommend!

    amazing view (paradise zone), good service, good location
    i was shocked by the amazing view in paradise zone, it's just around the bay and on top of a small hill with cliff view and sea view, sunset and sunrise is beautiful. the infinite swimming pool is excellent, although it's not very big, but you can face the sea while swimming. staff are kind. near the restaurant along the road there are many small restaurants provide good enough dinner. car service at any time from 8am-10pm everyday carrying up to the paradise zone or down to the beach.Very easy to find diving shops along the main road near hotel beach area. only weakness is breakfast, simple but quality is good.will for sure be back in 1-2 years.

    Beautiful View.. Well kept beach.
    Ko Tao Island is a little rough around the edges, mainly visited for its diving. Only a few of the staff speak English but they all are very helpful We stayed in the Beachside part of the resort. The nicer part is a block away on top of a hill. There is a truck every 30 minutes to carry you The shower is not separate from the rest of the bathroom so everything can get wet. The beds were comfortable. The rooms were very clean. The breakfast buffet was nice. The dive shop is on site with 2 dives a day

    Pool, location, breakfast
    We stayed at Koh Tao Resort after backpacking through Asia for 4 months and loved it. The pool is just amazing, just next to the beach and with an amazing view. Breakfast buffet was great and our room was very clean.. The only thing we didn't like is that our bungalow was on a hill and we had to climb a lot of steps to get there. And there's no wifi in these bungalows..

    It's all about the zone”
    breakfast, location, air con
    Overall good but you need to be careful which zone you book. There appears to be three zones; hillside, beach side, and in between. The cheapest option is the "in between" but unless you're desperate to save a few baht then I'd avoid it as they are simple wooden bungalows (albeit with air con) a little too far from the beach and restaurant which you can probably rent in any of the adjacent resorts for less than half the price. I'd made the mistake of booking one thinking I got a bargain and ended up paying an extra 800 baht to move. All in all though a nice resort. As a final point point be wary of the tip hungry porter who wouldn't leave my room until he got some money ..
