                I arrived to find the hotel had been fully booked despite booking the room. Their mistake meant that I had to find another hotel at short notice which was not great. Worse still they told me they'd put me in a room in the new wing they'd just built only it wasn't a new wing it was some old crappy hotel next door that we had to leave the entrance to get to and they had the cheek to tell me it was the same price! Not cool...

                Resort is situated away from everything you may need when staying here. We knew that before booking, but also we were expecting that resort is better equipped. You can eat at the restaurant in the resort, but it is nothing special and maybe too expensive but it is your only choice. Taxi to town costs around 400 baht, but you should lower it down to 300. At resort, you cannot really move because it is too steep and there is a guy in golf cart that drives you around, but first you have to call him with your own private phone. It is not suitable for families or people with dissabilities or any kind of struggle with mobility. The main problem with our stay was our Deluxe Suite when the night fell. The roof of our room (A05) was a home to various types of geckos, from few centimetres to even 40/50cm ones. The noise that they are making at night is unberable and you do not want that when trying to sleep. Also when in room, you see all the mini holes in the straw roof that enable the spiders and geckos to go up and down. We actually didnt mind all the lovely animals when outside on terrace or in the resort. But if a facility is called resort and you get a deluxe or whatever room, then you really shouldnt have holes in roof. We did not sleep all night due to gecko noise and had to (unfortunatley) kill two fist sized spiders. Thailand is a tropical country and you must be somewhat prepared for animals like that, but again, resort must take care of their facilities as it is in very poor condition. We asked for any suggestion or some kind of solution from the hotel, and the golf cart guy said he was coming for us to take us to reception to take care of the problem, but he never did. We waited until 7am for reception to start working and checked out. Man working at reception offered us another room but we werent interested as we saw geckos cruising from one roof to another. Pool was also dirty, so we did not use it. Workers at resort were kind at our arrival, but we cannot str

                Be prepared for lots of climbing!”
                Fantastic views but expect to do lots of walking/climbing stairs to be able to access any facilities or leave the resort. Golf carts will take you part of the way but no phone to be able to arrange pick up. Double bed comprised of two singles pushed together. Facilities are quite run down. Cost 300-400 baht to get to town or back despite it only being a short distance. Getting to town is easy by foot but you need to climb a rather large hill on the way home if intending on walking. We ended up leaving two days early as the getting to town for our booked dives was proving difficult and expensive. Resort was kind enough to offer a refund of one day which they were not obliged to do.

                Disappointing ”
                Great snorkeling spot and beautiful views. The staff cannot be faulted considering what they have to work with. We had stayed at this resort 3 years ago and was really impressed which is why we chose this resort again. We had to change rooms because of all the repair work that need to be done( door swollen and would not close, toilet cistern would not fill. For the rates charged I would expect a wardrobe or some space to unpack suitcase, coffee/tea making facilities in the room and at least one English TV channel. The rooms are in desperate need of maintenance. Just to name a few issues, roof leaked, electrical faults in the ceiling which would spark all night, rotting walk ways which are a hazard. 3 years ago the breakfast had far more on offer. This time was very little options. It’s apparent that funds are not being spent to keep this resort up to date and in full working conditions. The rates charged do not justify what the resort has to offer.

                Resort is run down. Workmanship is lacking. Not for a person with disabilities. Very steep paths. An elderly person could not stay there. Beach is tiny but adequate for a couple alone. More than 4 people would be crowded. Pool is nice and salt water. Don't cheap out on a room get the deluxe room. Way better. Staff especially reception are poorly trained. They really need an orientation person. You will miss a lot without one. Very disappointed in the reception staff. Not helpful and poor English.

                Not worth the hype or money! Not for children and senior people/disability ”
                Since this place is marketed everywhere we were excited to arrive to the Hillside. Here are pros and cons : Pros: In the hills Secluded Very few children Nice sunset view Cons: In the hills- meaning, you will need to climb up and down serious steps as well as navigate in broken pathways. Secluded- meaning, nothing is around.. no bar or restaurant. So you have to eat at their restaurant- average taste/ definitely over priced Very few children- Do Not bring kids here, way too dangerous for them to get hurt or yourself trying to hold them so they don't get hurt. Dirty Pool- do not swim in this pool!! It was green and had not been cleaned in forever. You absolutely must rent a scooter so you can leave the resort. The rooms are below average.. I will not be coming back, especially with all the other affordable options in Sairee.

                The view from the balcony was really nice but that is the only positive point. The bathroom had terrible hygiene: worms (!) in the toilet and ants on the walls. The door to our bungalow could not be locked, which led to a nervous night without much sleep. The location is extremly far from the important spots on Koh Tao and even getting to a street was difficult because you had to almost climb your way there. Wifi was obly available in public areas and the pool closed as early as 8pm. We left this place as soon as possible and would not recommend it under any circumstances.

                Had a very pleasant stay here. The views from the view are amazing and the staff are lovely. The only downside is it's about a 20minute walk to town and other restaurants so may end up taking taxis often unless u have a scooter. The walk from the rooms to reception to leave the property is immense. It is all up hill and you will be sweating by the time you reach the top. They do have golf cabs which can bring you down but no phones in rooms to call reception to bring you back up. All in all a great stay.
