      Unless they mess up your airport pick up, as happened to me, it's ok. Plus every so often there was some sort of loud noise from a generator or sth in my bungalow, that scared the hell out of me the first time I heard it. Pool and beach itself ok, but the rest of the island is overrated.

      Great value for money”
      Nice resort with a great pool. The pool has a small kids pool and partly there is shadow what is great with a small kid. The whole resort and bungalows are nice, especially that as it is not so expensive compared to other islands. We had a bungalow in the last row. It is very relaxed. The view is excellent, although the beach is not for swimming. The tides are strong and it´s muddy. The resort is far away from the villages on the island, but there is a nice restaurant outside. The island is not touristic, it is very authentic. Friendly people. And other beaches on the islands are quite nice.

      Place is very nice, there is nothing around a part from 1 shop and couple restraints, so you wouldn't want to stay to long. Pool area is nice and clean, food is ok, rooms are nice, not a fan of the out side shower/toilet, to many ants and flys.

      Great location, hit-and-miss customer service”
      We stayed at Thiwson Beach for a week, and after riding motor scooters all over the island we know this place has one of the best locations on the island. It’s east-facing, so you don’t get sunsets. But the view of the islands and limestone in the bay are beautiful. The resort isn’t on a sandy beach exactly - there’s a rock wall, a small drop-off, and then a rocky beach. At low tide you can walk to the left along a very long, sandy beach. Some trash, though - it’s mostly nice. The food at the restaurant is very, very good, and they offer a happy hour. The massages we got were excellent. They arranged motor bikes for us for a very reasonable price - better than the place up the street. We paid 200 baht each for half-day, which was 6 hours. That’s plenty of time to explore - we spent a day exploring the north end, and a day exploring the south end. The roads on Koh Yao Yai are not crowded, so it’s easy even for beginners who’ve never used a motor bike before. Customer service was inconsistent. Half of the time no one seemed to care or want to accommodate our request, and half the time they were great at answering questions and solving problems. This is a family-run place, and they don’t seem all that interested in getting to know the customers. They’re not unfriendly, just not always very accommodating. It might be a language barrier - we tried to joke with the restaurant staff, but they were a bit stiff. All in all, this is a great place to stay - there aren’t many places like this on Koh Yao Yai. There are places to walk to nearby for good food and drinks, and a little mini-market that the resort owns right up the hill, so it’s easy to get things you need.

      Good value for money spent.”
      Lucked out and got brand new bungalows (they are the ones highest on the hill above the road). Only complaint were there are tiny ants that were a bit of an annoyance but other than that no complaints. Hard Bed, nice AC unit, cute deck. 2 pool options although the bar is down at the bottom pool. Food was pretty yummy. Koh Yao Yai is pretty quiet. You can rent scooters from the hotel and ride all around the island and explore.

      Very personable and friendly staff. Good food and amenities and beautiful setting. Our only complaint, which had nothing to do with Thiwson, was that the haze that covered Thailand never allowed a clear distance view of the amazing rock island outcroppings.

      Comfortable room , Near the pier about 10 min by riding motorbike. Breakfast was medium taste and quantity, should be improved. Suggest you to rent bike from pier becoz the taxi is expensive , the good beach is in the other site of island.

      Check in smooth. Friendly staff. Quiet resort. You feel relaxed here. View of beach from the restaurant where you have your meal, fabulous! Staff gave their best to help you even if they speak less English. Recommended if you want to have your own time by yourself. Room clean. Wifi in room abit weak maybe because the router is in the restaurant or check in room.

      Peaceful and quite. Rooms are nice and clean located in a beautiful, green area. You can relax either next to a great swimming pool or on a private beach. This is a perfect place if you want to spend a few days relaxing in a peaceful and isolated place!! We highly recommend this hotel! The only minus is that there is only a tiny shop nearby and there are not many restaurants around.

Staff not particularly friendly. Restaurant not great but other options close by. No proper beach but great pool and mud flats picturesque in their own way. Bathroom open to elements so air con struggles as cannot seal room off.

      Amazing resort! We booked the Deluxe hilltop and they were great. There is an ATM and a shop with all you need including booze and cigarets. The resuatrant and the bare is also great. This is worth at visit if you go to KYY. The only thing that was more expensive than on the mainland ( Ao Nang) was massage.

      Nice and cosy island resort ”
      We spent three nights in one of the hillside bungalows. Enjoyed the spacious bungalow and our own “patio”. Great that there were pools on the hill and at the beach. Fellow travelers complained about noise from the road. We used earplugs, so didn’t have trouble sleeping. Be careful of the Sandflies, which can bite quickly and some people have a very strong reaction - it’s itching like hell. If you spray your body with deet you should be fine, though. A minor setback was that - because of low season?? - the nice restaurant and bar closed already at 8.30 pm. Nevertheless, we would stay here again.

      Intended to stay only one/two nights and ended up staying 4! The hotel is nice with some bungalows in front of the beach and some on the back. The food is good and staff is very nice. As an only point is that as toilets are "outside" there is the typical insects of an unpopulated island such as ants/geckos etc. But when you tell staff they remove it very quick! Would highly recommend this place is you want something peacful and real in your Thailand trip

      Love, Love, Loved the place”
      After spending time at Ao Nang and Railey Beach we booked into Thiwson Beach for 4 nights. We stayed for 14 nights! It was so peaceful, very few tourist on the island. It was just wonderful. The food at the restaurant was very good, and we also eat at Jikgo's just up the road. There is also a mini-mart next door where you could pick up supplies if needed along with an ATM machine. The hotel made arrangements to get us to Koh Lanta, perfect. We took a long boat to the mainland, a taxi was waiting for us to take us to the bus station in Krabi. The van then took us to Koh Lanta to our hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place to stay away from all the crowds. P,S. The pool was to die for.

      Beachfront Idyll”
      This has been the first time we have visited Ko Yao Yai although we have seen it from Klong Muang, Krabi many times and wondered what was there. We chose Thiwson Beach because of its nearness to Chong Lad pier and from the many positive reviews of other travellers. We were not disappointed. We had a beachfront bungalow which provided an excellent view of Phang Nga bay (and across to Klong Muang!). The room is large and airy with high ceilings, seperate bathroom and open-air shower and air-conditioning but no fan. Breakfast (included) consisted of eggs, cooked as you preferred, bacon and tomato, an excellent selection of fresh fruits, cereal, cake and pancakes. The dinner that we ate there was very good and the prices for food and drink quite reasonable. There are also a few restaurants within walking distance of the resort if you feel like a change. Staff were friendly and attentive without being overly so. I will definitely stay there again if I return to Ko Yao Yai
