Stay here! You won't regret it!

Let me start by saying--don't believe all the reviews you read about this place. I actually am shocked at some of the things people say....I really don't know what they are talking about! It is absolutely amazing and the manager goes above any beyond to help you. We stayed here a week and this is our second time to Koh Tao. The hotel has several different types of accommodation to choose from. Beach bungalows, hotel rooms, rooms with rans, rooms with AC, rooms that are quiet, and rooms that look over the beach. It is located in the centre of Sairee beach so except some noise no matter what but know this accommodation is budget friendly as well as located by EVERYTHING. We stayed in the back building close to the resort and did not hear any noise! But staying on the beach you will hear the bars until 2-3am. The manger made us feel very welcome and he was there to make sure our stay was amazing. You can view your room before you move in as well as change if you dont like it after a night! We really got to know the manager over the week. We booked tours through him, transport, and laundry services. All at better rates! He even picked my partner up on his personal time from the opposite side of the island as we couldn't get a ride back to the hotel! Honestly, worth every cent and more! The wifi is good as there are several to pick from. We could watch Netflix on it no problem. The pool is also located at the dive resort, which is nice and quiet! We recommend eating at New Heaven Cafe, their coffee and oatmeal are amazing. The prices are the best as well! If you are here to enjoy the beach, nice food, atmosphere and this is what you get with this hotel! We will be back to Koh Tao and we will for sure stay here again! (Written by a 30 year old couple)
Great spot to stay for beach or diving

Completed a diving course at the excellent Davey Jones Locker diving school. Stayed in a hut 10 seconds from the beach. Restaurants, street food, bars, cafes, supermarkets, laundry all within 2 min walk.
Friendly and super respectful staff that are happy to help out with whatever you want at the hotel and to explore in the island. Though you can get cheaper huts around the island, for the ideal location in Sarri beach and help I got from the people that worked there, it suited my needs perfectly and was worth the extra. Thank you to Apple and all the Silver Sands crew.
The diving school they are connected to Davey Jones Locker are absolutely brilliant. I completed my Open Water Diving with them and the instructors Noah, Steve and Jill all made me feel at home on this beautiful island.
Expensive room, bad wifi - you can do better in Koh Tao!

The only reason we stayed here, was because we were diving with Davy Jones Locker.
The hotel isn't really meeting the standards of how great the diving shop is!
- boring room, like, you really see how much the person who designed the room didn't care about how you would feel staying in the room.
- bad shower.
- the cheapest room comes without AC, which I think is crazy a place where it is SO hot! Let alone some places in Europe, it is illegal to rent out anything without AC to a tourist.
- the most un-dedicated receptionist I HAVE EVER MET!
- I don't know if the pool belongs with the hotel, or with the Diving Shop, however it isn't that great because it is mainly meant for the divers, so if you are going here without diving DO NOT STAY HERE.

My cousin and I stayed for 2 nights at his hotel. The location is great, close to everything and the room was very clean. The wifi worked well. Staff was nice and friendly. I strongly recommend this place.

On arrival we were shown the bungalow we were supposed to be staying in which didn’t have A/C just a fan that blew hot air around the room. We upgraded which cost us the same price again for the A/C
. The bungalows were dark and rather shabby and even though the staff were friendly the cleaner was lazy even though she only had a couple of the bungalows to clean she did a poor job. We would not be staying there again if ever on the island
