The first night we stayed at the 2000 bht room. Very clean and good bathroom. Free water in the fridge. Great hospitality. The other nights we stayed in the 700 bht room. Very basic but clean. No aircon and fridge in the basic bungalow. The two women of the reception are of great help and always smiling and happy. The...

Upon deciding to travel to Koh Tao, we wasnt originally planning on pre-booking but i am so glad we did. Palm Beach (not to be confused with Bo Thong), was just perfect. The lady on reception was extremely helpful with everything we needed, including booking our ferry and taxi service. The location was prefect, it was close enough to the...

I stayed at this hotel on the days before christmas, The journey to the hotel was rocky so arrived feeling rather under the weather, the breath taking views on the way to the hotel in the car that had been sent to pick us up from the port instanly healed my sickness.

Stayed here for 4 nights and loved it! The staff are friendly and helpful, my room seemed to be one of the newer ones which had a massive bed- easily could have slept 4 people in it. It is right on the beach towards the far end, perfect since you don't have all the action from the tail-boats/ferries. The water...

I stayed at this resort three years ago when it was still Bow Thong and absolutely loved it but have to say, I didn't enjoy my stay anywhere near as much this time around. The staff are still absolutely lovely and the location is still nice but the rooms were disappointing. They're fairly basic and definitely kept very clean but...

I decided against this property because of the ratings, but then I saw that most of the poor ratings were from some years ago. It's a brilliant place - right on the beach and a nice 10 minute walk to the village, and right at a very cute part of the beach. The food is good wherever you go on...

We just have the best time in Thailand here. The room are big & clean. The services is fantastic! We recommended for a quiet vacation (not for young that want to party all day!) BUT ! the food is bad so do not it there!

We struggled to find a good place to stay on Koh Tao with every hotel having really mixed reviews. We were really happy staying here, it is a little more expensive then others but worth it. It has a really good location, we didn't hear any noise at night, and its only a 5 min walk to all the restaurants,...

You find us at the north end strip of Sairee Beach. Palm Leaf offers the best view at the bay with its grey boulders and the colourful sea. Just a 5 min walking distance away from the village, it is still a very calm and private place to be. Moreover it is the only snorkeling side at Sairee beach.Set in a nice garden our lovingly furnished bungalows and rooms await your arrival. ... more   less
