Seashell resort: "Excellent dive school and decent resort" Ko Tao Hotel Tip by iljambonsen

The Seashell is an excellent place to dive and a fair place to spend the night. The fan-bungalows are small, have no warm water, no air-co, look cute and are pretty cheap(550 Baht in July 2008 while you get a 50Baht discount for every fundive you make). The concrete bungalows are a lot more expensive (I thought like 2400Baht including airco and TV).
The downside is the problem with bills: the check for the breakfast each morning or the final check for the stay, it's always a problem. I'm still not sure whether it is a problem of calculus or personal integrity. However, while the problem was big in 2007 (none of the bills was correct), most of the bills in 2008 were correct. However, this should not stop you from staying here. This problem has nothing to do with the dive school where I've had no problems at all.
Unique Qualities: Great view, nice location at the beach (see picture), excellent dive school, close to town.
Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: Just take a shared taxi/pick up truck and tell the driver you'd like to go to the Seashell.
Price: less than US$20
