Smelt like sewers, really overpricedPosted Nov 9, 2013
This used to be a good resort however this time I paid £50 for a very dated room that smelt like an open sewer. Only stayed one of the four nights before finding a lovely room just down the beach for half the price. I would definitely avoid. Very overpriced.

Serves a good breakfast.Posted Oct 18, 2013
Lots of steps up to hotel and room. Our room had good view of ocean. Clean room, the bathroom shower head could have been better placed, it was placed in corner of shower and and had to lean against wall to even get wet.

Nice hotel worst fun divingPosted Aug 23, 2013
Pros: Hilltop view room view was very good
Cons: I don't think so
Hiltop rooms are ok to stay. Restaurant was ok. Staff was very rude especially receptionist and another receptionist at the diving school. If you are a fun diver you should never go there. Boat was too crowded and divemasters were just looking their watch to fill the 40 min diving time. They never dive more than 45 min even if all of you have full tank with air.

Great place to learn to dive and have fun!Posted Apr 8, 2013
Pros: I loved my hilltop view and sunset.
I had a great time at Ban's Diving. The view from the hilltop rooms was to die for! There is something for everyone at Ban's, from basic rooms which are free for travellers learning to dive to elegant hilltop sanctuaries! Everything is on your doorstep as Ban's is well located to explore Sairee beach - shops, restaurants, massages, bars and a sea full of dive sites. This resort is friendly and fun.

Wonderful time at bans! Best honeymoon ever!!!!!Posted Jan 4, 2013
Pros: The room!!!! And the NYE!!!!!
Cons: Nothing really
Location: Wonderful location right on the beach
Bans diving resort is just awesome!!!!! Very clean, helpfull staff a great place to stay! Had best time with my honeymoon!!! We stayed on top of the hill ac room with private swiming pool. the room Wich requires a walk, but on bussiness time they give u a lift in their little golf car. On the NYE they gave a free party with live music and a huge free buffet!!!! It was a wonderful time an we really recommend Bans diving resort koh Tao!!! Also, we did 2 boat dives with them and was the best! Seriously this place is incredible! We had our dive gear, but if you don't, don't worry is everything new! When you arrive: they have a free pick up at the pier. So don't get a taxi.

Not for the older generationPosted Jan 4, 2013
Cons: Hotel is very noisy in the evening
Bans resort is mainly for people who want to participate in Diving not for people who want a nice relaxing holiday . It is for young people who want to party .

Hotel with a good location and diving trainingPosted Jan 3, 2013
The location of the hotel in Koh Tao and the highly professional diving training is what I would choose this hotel for. The rooms are good, but the bathroom could be better maintained a little better. Room didn't have a telephone so I had to walk to the reception for any issues, since the reception was close by I didn't have a problem with this. Not sure if all the rooms don't have telephones. Staff are friendly and courteous. The reception will arrange for most of the adventure sporting trips you'd like to go on. I would stay in the this hotel again when visiting Koh Tao.

Maybe better for people under 40Posted Jan 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
Location is in the middle of the beach so all night there is music and party and scooter noise. Efficient and pleasant hotel though!. Next time we will book away from the action.
