Family Tanote Bay Resort Koh Tao Reviews
Oct 25, 2010
I had been told to stay in Tanote Bay, which is extremely isolated from the rest of Koh Tao, but very beautiful. We got a good deal on a bungalow. Unfortunately, the fan did not isolate and the power went on & off throughout the night. The second night the power went all together, but it was storming out, so it cooled off a bit. I also woke up to a cockroach in my bed, which didn't help sleeping much. The beds smelled musty and the bathroom wasn't extremely clean, but the location is great. I ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there almost every day. When I went to pay one day I overpaid then when I went back, I couldn't explain it correctly, so I lost 300baht in the transaction. (Lesson: recount everything) They were not trying to cheat me- at least I don't think so! But in the long run its like $10, so I won't loe any sleep over it.
The snorkeling was really good in the bay and they have hammocks and chairs that you can hang out in all day. I really liked Tanote Bay and would recommend checking it out. They have better accommodation, we just opted for the cheapest- which we got.
