Desert beaches, very quiet and relaxing. Restaurant with good variety and reasonable prices. The island is so small that everything is at easy reach by bicycle only.
Many sand flies in the beaches of Koh Mak. We went back full of bites very irritant that lasted many days.
Stopped here for 8 nights and had total R&R. The island is very quiet however that is what we wanted. Unless you are going to hire a moped every day opt to pay for the breakfast at the resort. There is a short walk up a road to the nearest places to eat and to be honest they are all the same quality and price. You may as well book before than pay each day. There is not much to do at the resort. You pay to play pool, hire snorkel gear and kayak. Don't make the mistake we did and sunbath on the beach as the whole island has a problem with sand flies. This accomodation is worth the money, the room on the beach front was lovely however the electric and wifi went off most days between 9am and 1pm. The staff are lovely and the food ok.
Nothing to do on a night at this resort. The beach bar needs some life putting in it.
- nicest beach on the island as far as I could notice - nice personnel from cambodia - personnel is cleaning the beach in the morning before most people get up, including bug control (sand fleas) - some restaurants in the vicinity (by bike or motorbike) - some new bungalows just built - was quiet during low season as I expected
- during low season where we visited the menu card is quite limited on both breakfast and main dishes. - decay to be observed everywhere, due to lack of maintenance - 3% service charge on VISA payment - need bike or motorbike to get around - no TV in our bungalow, DVD only (but frankly who would need it?) - may be busy during high season
The beachfront property is probably the best in the island after visiting other places. There is an adjacent low-key outdoor bar (not the restaurant one) that offers the most amazing sunset view. It is relaxing to be at this place, and while the island is gorgeous, it is also okay to just stay here and just enjoy the property. The rooms are adequate although a lot of bugs do come in. I also like the bar and the kayak rentals. I got lost and left the kayak in another place, since i went passed by the resort miles off, and they were okay to just pick it up from there the next day.
It is a nice place to be at, but perhaps they should better look at some tiny details such as the curtains that provide privacy is not adequate to cover the whole room, so people can still see inside your room especially at night! Some of the mosquito screens fall off and need to be tightened back, to prevent mosquitoes in. And although there is no need for TV in a place like this, it would be nice if on a rainy night, the TV has some channels on it to watch the news. The staff at the restaurant also needs to be a bit more polite to potential customers. When I turned up with no booking at low-season, they gave me an exorbitant price and an attitude that discourages me from staying. I then proceeded to book online which cuts off 1/3 of the price. It would be nice if they can politely explain that the price is x but if i book online, i could get it for less instead of having a slightly rude attitude about turning up at their place. They softened a bit and was nicer once they saw my online booking, but one of the staff still needs to learn customer relations.
Staff were very friendly and helpful, everyone working in the resort had a good level of English. The beach was beautiful.
My bungalow was so cute. The bed was so comfortable. It was very clean. The aircon worked great. Loved my bungalow. Although not much was going on, but this was probably since it was the off-season. The staff was very accommodating and very kind. Very enjoyable.
This is not the resorts fault, but the beach was covered with trash. It was everywhere.
Excellent staff, friendly and help full that adds to the charm of the place. A perfect place to come and relax. Nice bungalows and a relaxing beach.
The bed was too hard otherwise I would have stayed longer. The location on the island is also not optimal when it is windy and the waves are high.
Clean rooms, bottled water delivered in the morning, balcony cleaned every day, good food at restaurant (price level is cheap), great views, nice garden. low season price level is really affordable, free pick up and from and to pier.
We stayed here during low season. A lot of the facilities were unavailable, such as beach bar. In their website they also advertise that for example bikes and snorkels are free of charge, this was not true and the staff did nothing to solve it, except they gave bikes for a few hours. beach was dirty and there were a lot of sharp stones and junk. I even found a sharp metal net in the water during low tide. I didn't want to swim there. nearest shop was quite far away by walking, like other restaurants. This place needs a swimming pool. Wifi signal was bad in our room, but clear at the pier close to Makathanee resort, which is several kilometers away. Maybe their antennas are misplaced. They turned of the wifi around 8pm, which was really annoying, since there are no TV channels on the TV, so you can only enjoy some (not so good) DVD movies.
It was so untouched & unlike anywhere else I have ever been
Beach is private
dirt , algae on the beach need to clean everyday it would be perfect.
Hotel facilities, location, accommodation and food.
Overall for the cost (we were in low season) it's an excellent place to stay. The bungalow by the beach was clean and comfortable, with air con. The beach is lovely, a bit rocky under feet when you went into the sea. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was ok but a little limited on choice. It's in a good location with a good access road to be able to explore Ko Mak by bike or scooter, both of which are cheap to rent. Make sure you call in to see Ball at the coffee shop at the entrance to the resort, he has maps of the island and is very passionate about helping people enjoy their stay on Ko Mak and the coffee is amazing. We really enjoyed our stay here and would recommend if your after somewhere relaxing, comfortable and clean, it's not the high end of luxury but you wouldn't expect that for the price. They also provide a free lift from the pier to the hotel.
We were a little frustrated that there were signs for cocktails, seafood BBQ, steak house and Thai massage on the site of the resort and it wasn't explained to us that because we were out of season these were not available for us, which was understandable but would have been nice to have been told before we got excited about them. Due to how basic the infrastructure is the water in our room was brown on occasion. Out of season the menu is quite small and basic, try the seafood restaurant that comes to pick you up and serves amazing fresh food in a stunning location. There are also a few of the little places on the side of the road that are open and you can access on the scooter. Our favourite was on the road heading towards the nearest pier, you pass the temple in your left and on the right is a place that has restaurant painted on the front of it on the bricks, with a corrugated iron roof, with lots of tractors to the left of it, we had some of the tastiest and cheapest food from our 3 week trip to Thailand it's a must to go to!!
small insects near by the beach....
The sea view from the bungalow , The white sand. The clear water.
The sand flies are biting a lot and all corals are dead .
The huts were very clean and the resort manager ,Chain, was always obliging, friendly and very professional. He impressed me greatly. His young staff were wonderful. They were always happy and couldn't do enough to please us. We loved the beach bar. Mr Kong was a lovely man.
The bathrooms were poorly designed. There was only one towel rack and a complete lack of hooks for hanging clothes. The toilet was positioned directly adjacent to the shower and the beds were much too hard for comfortable sleeping. Because of the tidal nature of the small swimming area it would be a much better resort if it had a swimming pool.
room, scene, activities, facilities, garden
taste of food, sandflies, not much travel information brochure provided
Greatest resort with impeccable service, location (within Koh Mak) and restaurant.
Weak shower water pressure, some rubbish along Ao Kao beach (when you walk beyond the area maintained by this resort).
Staff very friendly and helpful
Sandflies, mozzies and jellyfish!
Very friendly staff and lots of things to do. Nice with massage just 10 m from the shore, listening to wawes coming in.
Wi-Fi did not function all the time but it seems like it was for the whole island.
Many kind of facilities to play .I.e. table tennis, volleyball, chess , little beach bar, massage and there also have quiet beach ..Good to stay here if you are really need to relax.
Quite far from the main road ,need to rent a bike or motorcycle to go another place in this island.
Its simply a nice place on a relaxing island. In terms of comfort or cleanliness there's never much to be expected in such a remote edge of the world. Same for the Internet connection, don't expect it to work well anywhere in any place on Koh mak. Anyways I'd like to state that this place offers some of the best service and has one of the nicest beaches on the island. The beach bar with its friendly staff and excellent Bbq is one of the places I spent most time at.
Nothing to complain about actually.
The magic of the place. Beautiful beach, great team and the whole island is quite a treat!
The water in the sea was too hot :)
we had a great time.they looked very well after us.very friendly staff.
the beaches on the island really need a clean up.
