Great location and beautiful view”
You get what you pay for and this is a discount resort. I had an amazing view and a nice little bungalow. Only negatives were the place was empty, the wifi was nonexistent, and the food was over priced. Besides that very beautiful place to go with a loved one or friends. Not by yourself.

Hotel was not the same as advertised ”
The resort is a lot older then depicted in photos. Although the view and staff were great, I would not have paid so much for this places, as it was not worth it. The location is also a bit of an issue because you end up having to pay extra to go into town. Food available at the hotel was expensive and not much else around. If the prices were lower then it would be a nice place to stay. Unfortunately, the price of the bungalows and extra expenses incurred were not worth it. In addition, wifi is only available in the main areas not in individual bungalows which was quite misleading!

A lot of stairs”
They will give you golf cart rides up but not down which will make for a long journey if you are on the island and want to go into town. We were doing our dive training so we had classes a lot and this just added unneeded time to our day. They also use WhatsApp to communicate but never respond in a timely manor. Nice location but could use to customer service.

Great place on Ko Tao!!!! ”
I booked this place without quite looking at the reviews, and after reading them I was regretting my decision. However, luckily they were quite misleading!!!! Yes it is on a hill and there is some waking involed (not the end of the world - however if you have mobility issues I would not recommend at all) but what else would you expect from a hillside resort. They do provide golfcart service to pick you up from the room if need be but I did not use it because honestly who doesnt want a little exercise when on vacation anyways ( Infact I was happy to walk the stairs everyday!). The employees were all super kind, helpful and pleasant. The room was nice and clean no complaints at all. The pool was great and of course the incredible view! Yes it is not a 5 star resort that one might be used to but it is comfortable and you get what you are paying for. As for the walk into town, maybe 15 minutes or so quite a nice walk as well, although you can rent some motorbikes cheap 150 baht nearby.

Good views rude staff ”
Front desk staff chose to help me last even though I arrived at the desk first. They acted like I was inconveniencing them. The hotel has great views but not of the sunsunset. The hotel is on a cliff so the staff will take you on the golf cart ride of your life to drop you and your bags off and up the hill if you call them but you have to walk down to your room. NO WIFI. Nice pool and overlooks. Snorkel for rent but you must jump off the dock as walking in on the little beach will hurt the coral and your feet. Staff woke us up at 8:30 am by knocking on the door to ask when we would check out then did loud gardening all around our room. No bathroom door, just shower curtain.

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...

Checked out earlier”
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.

Above average”
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.
