      Quiet remote hotel away from everything”
      Pros: * we had a bungalow up in the trees which was very unique and beautiful. *the ocean is right there with good snorkelling *the room was clean *free pickup at the pier Cons: * you are away from EVERYTHING (unless you want to chill out and dive on the east side of the island as there is a couple dive shops right here) it was too windy on this side of the island for us to dive here so we headed to the west, more busy Sairee Beach. *the food at the restraunt is not good

      Peace, quiet and nature”
      Montalay is on tanote bay, Koh Tao. It has the best snorkeling off the beach on the island. I stayed for 3 days. The restaurant is basic but the menu offers more than other resorts in the bay. (Other two restaurants with good review in the bay were closed) this spot can feel quite isolating as it is away from any main tourist areas but that is what I loved about it. Small tropical huts nestled in the trees, surrounded by nature, just me and the beach. It has a small pool, diving center and basic beach bar. Also a pick up truck serves as you taxi and pier transfers service 3 times a day. The sand is rough and like most Asian tropics the surrounding waters are still battling the build up of plastic pollution. If you go for a snorkel, do your part and take some out of the water, for the fish’s sake.

      Excellent place but food (restaurant) could be better”
      Location, cleanliness, staff - everything is exceptional. However restaurant serves food that doesn't match with overall status of the Hotel. Coffee is instant garbage, noodle soup is nowhere near to what you can find in Thai and no classic chili sauces (only Heinz one). This leaves poor impression on Thai cosine for travelers who does not leave Hotel during the stay.

      Beach is amazing hotel just ok”
      I don’t know why this hotel is so well rated maybe because the beach is amazing and it’s is located at the beach. The value for money is definitely something not good. If come here be prepared to stay just here because the hotel is far from everything and taxi is really expansive. Breakfast you need to pay extra fee. We are in a cabinet that needs to pay for use the air con too. The beach is sensational but the hotel is not the best there are better hotels cheaper and that offer more things

      The best thing here is the bay with great snorkeling spot. Easy access to the beach. Big and clean room. Food is great with a big portion. it's not expensive when compare to other hotels in Koh Tao. Great place to stay.

      A great hotel hotel on a lovely beach!”
      Great option of hotel for this beach. This is our 3rd visit to this hotel. The rooms are clean (we have stayed in both styles for families (the hotel style room at the back of the hotel and the individual bungalow style). The staff are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast is good and the food at lunch and dinner is also really quality. The beach is ideal for snorkelling off although you need to be careful of the coral in certain places. You can also get water taxis (long tail boats) to other parts of the island. They also run taxis to the pier and other beaches. A great place to stay in a Koh Tao, very relaxing!

      Cheap stay but location will cause you to spend a lot of money on taxis ”
      Staff was rude, unhelpful. Hotel does not provide affordable transportation into the city yet they do not sell basic things like toiletries or sunscreen in case you run out. Plan to pay about $18USD for every 10 minute cab into town. Food here is very expensive and not good. Beach is nice but no real bar service on the beach. Fine place if you have kids, don’t mind mediocre food, and do not plan to ever leave the resort.

      It is a nice place at a very quiet beach. Nice snorkeling just in front. No boat trip needed.”
      Friendly and helpfull staff, 2 of theme with good english. Nice pool area, clean and spacious room, very good snorkle space just in front of the hotel. Breakfast good although no buffet. The restaurant is good and not very expensive. But they close the restaurant at 8:00 pm and you can't get any drink at all after 8:30 pm. No bar, no billard, nothing to do at a very lonely place.

      自然に囲まれているビーチ”
      こちらで2泊しました。 とにかく自然がたくさんで、まわりに少しのレストランしかないようでした。 GWに滞在したけど、この時期は雨降りが多く、波も荒くて、落ち着いてシュノーケリングはできませんでした。 でも、旅行者も少なくて、浜辺ではデッキチェアに座ってのんびりできました。 雨が降ると、停電になり、ホテルの部屋が真っ暗になったのがとても怖かったです。 この時期は懐中電灯が必要かも。 天気がいい日なら最高の滞在になったかも。 全体的にはコスパのいいホテルだと思います。

      Lovely location right on the beach and added bonus of a swimming pool. Staff were generally polite and accommodating Kea (?spelling) was particularly excellent. It is a little off the beaten track which is great but unless you hire a moped you will need to pay for taxis to town. The hotel can arrange this for you. Unfortunately our eldest child was bitten by the hotels dog whilst there. Despite this we would still happily go back.

      I definitely recommend Montalay. Bungalow was lovely. The one I had was close to the beach so was convenient. Also stayed in a standard room that was nice. Had an end unit by the garden that was quiet. A steep driveway (with stairs) to get to everything but not really an issue. Beautiful and quiet location. Very relaxing.

      Cons: no safety box in room, garden view faces road and no breeze and noisy, lack of beach chairs, beach not cleaned, yoga classes cancelled each day, old diving equipment; snorkel & fins extra charge. Limited snack selection, bring supplies from town. Pros: Hotel organized guest pick up at the pier, large rooms with good clothing storage, comfortable bed, beach towels provided, breakfast adequate, good dinner menu with average pricing with good portions, pool lovely, beautiful gardens, staff very helpful, reception (Noie) very helpful, 4 regular taxi services daily to town- 100 baht per person each way. Drivers will accomodate special requests at a surcharge. Other restaurant options along the beach.
