I came to Ka Tao and checked out about 7 hotels by bike and stumbled across this hotel. Have read some of the reviews on this site and am shocked so many people have had a bad experience.

We stayed at Family Tanote Bay for 3 nights when we first arrived on Koh Tao and what a great place it is. It is tucked away on the remote side of the island down rocky tracks but the dodgy ride in the back of a truck is worth it. The bay has 5 resorts based there all very small... More

Bad service and too expensive. Rooms are badly kept, broken furniture, springs come out of the matrasses. They advertise with aircon butin fact the aircon only runs from 6 pm to 6 am. Can't really blame the staff, they make longer hours. Management should do better.

the service at this place is shocking, i could have sworn that they were not thai people because they are naturaly very welcoming and thoughtful people, all they were interested about the room key deposit of 300 BHT and if you hired any snorkling gear. The eating area is surrounded by notes everywhere saying rules about the place and what... More

“All the bungalows are different. Theres lots of steps so if you dont want to hike up alot of steps, you can always ask for a room close to the beach. There is bungalows right on the beach. I was halfway up the hill and I had a total knee replacement. When I made it to my sundeck, it was always worth it. I didnt need AC. I had a great fan and the seabreeze blew right through my room. The bungalows are nice. It is Thailand. I recommend reading a short blurb or two on Thai and Burmese people, there customs. There very easy going people. Unfortunately for them that work in the tourist business, they are confronted with disgruntled, complaining, loud people constantly. We all could learn something from there "take it easy" style of life.”

“Make sure to look at the room before you pick it -- we had room 24, which was probably the best on the whole damn island as far as views go. Some of the rooms were blocked by trees, however.”

“Bungalows at beach are mainly for 4p..smaller ones higher up against the hill. Be very specific when you call them. You could end up in bungalow high on the hill, with many stairs. Prices can hardly be negotiated, You need to pay in advance, so make sure you have enough cash with you since there is nothing nearby. Email is unreliable and not an option to communicate.”
