    From here must I disagree with the negative reviews completely! The beach was the best we have found Tao to bathe on Koh, and is perfect for the snorkeling, we saw lots of fish and some reef sharks, snorkel so aufjedenfall go. Bungalows with sea view are stunning and the rooms quite clean. Around noon, the beach is pretty well attended (for non-residents 100 baht) morning and from 17: 00 you have it but almost for itself alone. At the hotel's restaurant, we ate every day, man-made hotel prices are usual (slightly higher). We would get aufjedenfall again!

    The beach is not really nice, would recommend the freedom beach or Sharkbay if you want to see a beautiful beach. But it has but incredibly beautiful unspoilt coral reefs with countless beautiful fish. Everything really top for snorkeling! Fins are allowed and nobody said anything.
