One of the best nights sleep we've had in Asia on the huge and comfy bed. The villa was nice and clean and had everything you need for a perfect stay. Shout out to...

I hardly know where to begin when reviewing our stay at The Rocks Villas! Janine and Jean-Marco (spelling?) greeted us with smiles and gave us a superwarm welcome as the taxi driver dropped us off! This place is more beautiful in real life than you can imagine. The view is so amazing! We stayed in the Sunset Villa and loved...

We stayed in the Sky Villa for 10 days. I love that the location is close to town, but not too close. I love the privacy and peacefulness on a very popular island. If you want to get in the action it's a short walk to Sairee Beach. We are in our late 40's and did not find the walk...

By far, the best vacation one could ever ask for. The villas are beautifully decorated, clean, and comfortably luxurious. The staffs are wonderful and so very sweet. The location is secluded and private creating a sense of 'home away from home' and as though having one's own private pool over looking the vast greenery and endless ocean ahead. This resort...

We stayed in early October and found the Rocks Villas to be a perfect location. The staff, and in particular Janine, were brilliant. They were very knowledgeable about things to do and places to visit on the island and really helped us to plan a birthday surprise for one of our party. The mobile phone you get on arrival, along...

When you look at the views from your terrace, you'll think that the trip up the hill was well worth it. In the end, we go to the Ko Tao to see that. I was perhaps a little bit disappointed by the quality of the rooms, they're big and they have all you need, but I was a bit naive...

The Rocks Villas lie at the end of a road 70 meters above Sairee Beach and has a beautiful view to the sea. Except from the fascinating jungle sounds, its a quiet place to relax at the balcony or by the nice swimming pool. The staff is very helpful and the villas are clean and very comfortable.

We had an incredible four days at The Rocks. The manager, Scottie gave us some amazing recommendations (dive shops, restaurants, etc.) and advice when it came to around Koh Toa. We loved the cell phone that was provided, and knowing that Scottie was just a phone call away was great. It also came in handy when ordering takeout to our...
