The staff has poor English.1/2 of the complex is just under construction. The beach is tidy,bud a few steps away tons of plastics. Sea murky, lots of floating garbage, jellyfish. Breakfast modest, but you can make coffee in the room. Resort half-full. Unlike many other resorts on Koh Yao you can swim even at low tide.

We were tempted by the lovely location, good prices and the closeness to Santhiya and the beer was indeed served in a very nice glass. However, we were unable to wait to sample the (apparently delicious) food that we had ordered. We had young children with us and after waiting for over half an hour asked how much longer our...

Hotel was only half-full in the middle of highest season. Hotel Manager is very unpolite and unfriendly. We had to leave after couple of days, just couldn't watch and hear him shouting to people and to us. Food was good and the rest of staff was friendly. If you don't mind holes in the walls and untidiness, this can be...

Extensive menu and we only tried the Thai food, honestly it was just amazing, the Singha beer was served in frozen beer mugs and the cocktails were to die for,...

This was my boyfriend and my second visit to the beautiful island of Koh Yao Yai and Yao Yai Beach Resort. We had as lovely experience second time around as we did last year. The huts are basic but very clean and have a fridge / safe / tv / air con - all you need. Given that the cost...

The smal huts need a refurbishment. When it rained was the straw hut was built by very wet and everything was damp. Otherwise it was all one needed inside the cabin and a lovely terrace at sunset. The biggest problem was that the staff did not speak English. they can ask if you want coffee or tea, but understand nothing....

Ko Yao Yai is a beautiful place! Yao Yai Resort is in a good location (nice beach, close proximity to other resorts and a few small shops). Unfortunately, the members of staff don't speak English and communication was very hard. The language barrier can be a problem when you rely on transport bookings, want to amend an order from a...

We booked Yao Yai resort for 4 nights but extended our stay because we enjoyed our stay so much! This hotel is located on the "best beach" side of the island which isn't effected too much by the tides. Also, it's the only hotel with sea view bungalows. Hotel has a laid back, relaxed atmosphere which reflects small island life...

Our package included pickup from our hotel in Phuket, boat to Yao Yai, 2 nights accom, day trip (island hopping), boat trip to Krabi and transfer to our hotel...

It took some time to get to this resort but it was worth it! The huts are right on the beach. The room was clean and adequate. Nothing spectacular. We had a problem with our tv but the owner took care of the problem right away by giving us his personal TV! The shower was cool. There was a nice...
