Good view, good location and great service staff.
Everything difficult. Very steep path. Even though they have golf car service, it's always busy line to call them picking up us. They said we can use whatsapp (underdeveloped program, very few people use it) or wechat. That's not in our cellphones. It's make sense if they use line or facebook which are both more popular program. Golf car staff finish 10 pm but everyday of our stay, they disappeared at least 15 mins before 10 pm and let us walk in the shadowy light. Bad experience.
Good service and accommodation nice view, peaceful.
That was perfect view for sunset. Good service and peaceful place. Breakfast was so delicious.
Great location just by the sea. You can snorkle there as hotel provide snorkle mask and life jacket at 150 Bhatt and 100 Bhatt each for renting for one day. Breakfast was good but the food we ordered in the restaurant wasn't good.. So have to go to main core area of koh tao for dinner/lunch/snacks which is 10 minute walk from the hotel. It's in steep land so it can become tiresome to walk even to the reception or to and from swimming pool to your room. But hotel can provide buggy car service for your convenience of you request. Swimming pool was not clean so we didn't get into it though the pool look quite nice from top. There was no phone in our room so have to use your own mobile phone. I liked the prior to hotel asks hotel to pier transfer service. But they have their time schedule to go to pier to drop guest. If it doesn't match with your schedule then have to pay for taxi. Can buy day tour packages from hotel. Room was quite musty... And no slippers and the water boiler was dirty. They say they change towels only one time in 2 days.. But we requested and they changed it everyday.
Small room and non comfortable .
Bad service, poor security, and no service.
Nice view but very hard staff Calling is not answered.
Dating with a girlfriend is a very good place. The service is very impressive, the most beautiful and beautiful trip to Koh Tao.
The rooms are very beautiful sea view, very nice atmosphere. It's like living in a very traditional Chinese style. Love really here But stuck alone Far from downtown. Should rent a motorcycle. Because there are not many taxis. If you go back, I want to sleep in the resort all day.

Mixed- but amazing views
Where do we start... Booking the hotel we were aware of the mixed reviews but as many other places were booked we took a gamble and booked here due to the views and thinking others may have been too critical. Well, the views did not disappoint, lovely to watch sun set and fantastic sea view from our room. From the beginning- Unexpectedly there was a truck to pick us and other passengers up from the pier, we hadn't requested it but very much appreciated it. On arriving we were given an upgrade due to a special occasion which meant a bigger room and better sea view at the bottom of the hill. Breakfast was poor, lots of flies and limited choice. Wifi was down for 3/5 days we were there which was inconvenient. Buggy service was ok but could only use when wifi worked as it was done through whatsapp, which meant enduring the steep steps and slopes to leave the resort each day. Hotel needs a lot of updating so many things were out of date/ broken or bodged- got the impression things hadn't been updated in decades!! Walk to town was around 1mile or around 300thb per couple (very grumpy taxi driver across road). Was fine to walk in daytime but was pitch black at night which felt unsafe. Woke up one morning to find a giant centipede walking through our room and our belongings which created a few sleepless nights wondering what we might find in the morning. Night Reception staff were very helpful with our 5am check out. All in all very mixed. This hotel could be amazing if time and effort were put in- lots of aspects were unused due to not being thought through well.

Fab views, old fashioned room, poor receptionist attitudes!
Stayed here for two nights. The views were stunning and the sunsets breathtaking. However it states on their website they pick up from the pier upon request. We requested this service and received a confirmation email to say they would be there. But no one came to get us from the pier. We then had to get and pay for a taxi. When I raised this at check in the receptionist was very unhelpful and just stated "nothing I can do about it" no apology was offered at all. So needless to say we didn't get off to a great start. The room itself was spacious but in need of updates. The steps are very steep and a lot are quite unsafe and broken I cut myself on two occasions off them. Although the views are amazing I am sure they are in other hotels too this would not be my choice of place to stay if I was to visit the island again.

Amazing views but way too steep
The views from this hotel are incredible and you can sit and have dinner watching the sunset which is amazing! However the hotel itself is on a huge hill which is beyond tiring to walk up and down! A golf buggy service is in place to take you up and down but they rarely replied to this messaging service. Rooms are okay but very thin walls so can hear everyone walking past at night time, bathrooms also need a good clean

Beautiful but needs updated
As soon as we arrived it was breathtaking. THe views and the nature was beautiful. We learnt as days went by, it's a little shabby We got a free upgrade to a bigger room which was a lovely surprise. However, after dinner (which was lovely) We went back to our room and noticed or back door didn't lock.. we were quite worried as we are two girls in Koh Tao, not knowing the surroundings and a little scared that our back door didn't lock. The reception staff mentioned that if we needed a lift or any help we Whatsapp them. we whatsapped them about our lock and we need it fixed asap, they said that they couldn't do it now but would do it in the morning.. 3 days went past and we couldn't lock our back door. Luckily nothing happened but meant we carried out valuables around for 3 days. There also isn't much for your clothes. I also ended up washing my self with shampoo and they gave us 2 shampoos one day rather that shampoo and shower gel. The pool is lovely and the view is spectacular. The very loud music around the pool made it hard to relax which is why we went to hillside resort - to relax. I won't go on because it was lovely and I don't want to nit pick at everything. Thank you for a lovely time though
