Location, jungles, cliffs, sea
Dirtiness around the bay.
Nice looking surroundings
Useless beach, only for taking photos. Going to Railey beach through unfriendly wood path and rocky water was exhausting activity. Of course you can take a overprized boat but...
Large room with Aircon was great value, the location is stunning, waking up to the sound of Gibbons calling is brilliant, breakfast was excellent and the food in the restaurant was also excellent!
A few rainy days!
Its a backpackers holiday really. There is no customer service, no communication, no care. Food is below par, expensive. Guests have to walk a mile in low tide from boat terminal. Be prepared to walk through knee deep mud to boat and then from boat. The resort is surrounded by garbage. There is a fence being built but there is disregard for cleanliness and hygiene. Staff seem bored and display complete apathy toward guests.
The receptionist was quite rude!
Friendly resort great value for money. Word class climbing.
very sad to see so much garbage around and where have all the beach front places gone?
Rooms were good sized. Nice location in the tropical forest. Breakfast was good. Dinner was excellent value. Beautiful T-bone steak. Nice bar beside the resort. Cool chilled out island.
Because it's in the tropical forest there are plenty of critters around both outside and inside. Lots of angry monkeys. Not a complaint about the hotel but the new hotel that is being built and the deforestation that is occurring because of this. Also meant all the bars have been forced to move up the hill and away from the coast. Toilet in the restaurant is not good and the hotel should look at this as a priority especially when they are serving food
Nice beach Good little restaurant Really the only resort on the bay Excellent bar Some really lovely staff
Reception staff, not helpful or friendly
When we complained, they kept there word and we were given our money back. The area is beautiful only to be blighted by trash and dirt and dark dingy road to the resorts rather odd set up.
We asked to leave as we were not told that the aircon and internet would be off between 9am in the morning until 5pm, which meant no hot water and fridge off and a very hot sticky room which we had paid for.The properties are dated and need better towels and sheets. It could be great but it's not.
Only a short boat ride out of Ao Nang, to a lovely little hidden gem.
Think the towels could do with replacing, although the bedding was fine.
Besides everything? The staff and all the locals we ran into we're super friendly and helpful. Gorgeous location. Tonsai is the place for those who love rock climbing.
During low season, the whole island only has power from 5pm-9am.
The location is beautiful, very relaxed beach and the villas set slightly back into the jungle, our bags (and us) were taken on a motorcycle to save us walking, though it wasn't very far at all. We saw wild monkeys! It's So close to Railay, we hired a kayak for 300thb(£6) and paddled over. The rooms were well presented and all staff were very attentive. Wasn't too commercialised, very relaxed and not full of tourists!
Need to be advised electricity and wifi is only available 5pm-9am, but not a problem once we knew. Make sure you leave plenty of time for getting a boat back to Tonsai, they only go if theres a decent amount of people (4-8)
Overall the hotel is located in a great place,climbing and kayaking opportunities,great bars and locals
The host was a bit too chilled,no electricity for most of the day time,difficulty to get back during night time from railay beach,toilette wasn't in a good working order
Beautiful scenery, nice rooms, decent beach
Staff not very friendly or helpful, rooms are a bit far from the beach, a lot of the area was closed during low season
We didn't like anything about it in fact we left 1 day earlier because we were very uncomfortable, these people don't deserve to have any customers and get their act together and clean up the resort and smile smile smile, after all tourist pay their wages. Absolutely disgusting.
Excellent views, great bungalow, big lizards running around, monkeys, climbing, and a laid back bar.
Dirty in areas, but not in the bungalows. Getting off the beach can be a pain, because you need 8 people in order for the boats to leave, otherwise you must buy a private boat ride.
the room was really clean and nice. Staff was ok. Breakfast was good
is not about the room but about the place. Is a beach for climbers so it is not really prepare for other type of tourism. Backpack is a must, we took luggage and it a real pain!.
Fare enought for the price, the rooms are very clean and confortable. Nice location, basic breakfast.
During low season, they cut off electricity from 9am to 5pm. So, don't expect to stay at the room during this period. With no air-con it gets really hot.
Room was cleaned every single day and we got new towels each time. Woman receptionist was very helpful, the staff of the restaurant also.
Tonsai Bay is for rock-climbers, beach is better at Railay bay. Gardeners were using pretty noisy grass cutting machine once in the afternoon when we tried to relax. In low season there is no wifi and electricity during daytime.
Just the place where it is
Nobody tell us about there is no power from 9 am to 5 pm. (Then we didn't have air conditioner, fresh drinks! in a place with 36 degrees) The reception stuff is not having good manners, they don't treat you as a guest, and they don't tell you the truth not helping you. The boats are arriving to the beach rarely, there's no pier, then you have to carry the luggage from the boat into the water. If you need to take one of these, then you have to walk to the end of the beach (500 m) (with no help) and get up to 8 people to travel, other wise you will need to paid the full amount (THB 800, around USD 25) every time you go away. There's no ATM, no shops...only small places where you have to really pay much more!!! If you like to swim, there's to many rocks. Big boats tours, or speed boats are departing from Railey Beach (next beach), then you have to pay a boat to get there. In summary, this place is not advisable. If you want to go, just choose Railey where everything is available (power too), and more clean, with a beautiful beach for anything (no rocks).
The hotel is beach front and located right at great rock climbing spot. Beach is good during 5 p.m. until noon of the following day. Very nice relaxing bar and tasty restuarant. Room is ok considering to what we paid. Staff was helpful.
Breakfast is poor. To me this place looks like backpacker place. Better to stay at Railey west if you don't feel to be in hippy style.
Location on the beach. But rooms were far up the hill.long walk to rooms. Staff at reception were lazy and not willing to help. Location was good. Relaxed.
Staff lazy and not intrested in their work. Rooms were far up.promised rooms neaeby but never happened. Hard to reach at night and at low tide. Its off the main land so can reach only with long tail boat.
Location on tonsai beach.
Breakfasts - really bad thing. Luckily there is a plenty nearby places to eat. There is no electricity 11-17PM so if you would like to charge smth do it before.
The location and the accommodation itself were very good
-Wifi was not available 24/7 -Staff put on a smile but still didn't seem like they wanted you there -Hotel was not very flexible -The breakfast was appalling -It is not a resort. The term is used very loosely. -Some essentials were taken from my room and probably put in the bin when they cleaned the room. (Plasters, as there were no decent ones available in the shops in the enclosed area)
It was the only place we could find in tonsai Bay in April with 24 hour air conditioning. It was right near the beach, restaurants and rock climbing area. A far better location than dream Valley resort where we stayed when we first arrived. Tonsai Bay is slightly less in the jungle and more sea breeze so you're less likely to get attacked by mozzie on leaving your room than up on the jungle path where dream Valley is located. When the room was cleaned the sheets were changed every time which was excellent. We liked how our room was at the bottom of the resort rather than further up the slight incline, made it easier with a pram. We went for the slightly more expensive rooms out of the 2 options. If I had to go back I would stay here.
The bathroom doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the room as the bathroom seems really old, the sink was leaking underneath and there was just a big hole in the floor for the shower drain. So the bathrooms could definitely do with a refurbishment. When the lady was at reception she was nice but the 2 other men that sometimes manned the front desk were useless and really unfriendly. There was often a mozzie in our room so it was good to be provided with a mosquito net. We all got sick at tonsai and heard that 50% of visitors do. Something to do with lack of electricity and therefore refrigeration or the masses of flies here. If you want less flies, mozzies and sickness stay at railay. Tonsai is better for bob Marley music bars on the beach (and people lying around in them), rock climbers getting together, cheaper food and budget accommodation.
