Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Rooms are nice and big & clean for a single traveler. The sea is unfortunately not that much good. Sun set view is amazing. The food and staff are over a standard for Tailand👌 Massage center is recommended.

Lovely resort in a good area of the island Restaurant lovely and breakfast lovely - friendly waiting staff and nice drinks Beach and pool also really nice We had the cheapest room and it was pretty basic although functional and right on the beach. Reception staff not very helpful. Also no pier pickup service which was surprising as hostels offering for free. Otherwise really good stay, would stay here again.

We were here for 4 nights as a couple. Basically we liked our stay very much, but we can not recommend the small bungalows. We stayed in the cheapest bungalow and it was so small that you could not even place the open suitcase. In addition, windows and doors were not tight, so we had many mosquitoes in the room. Unfortunately, the air conditioner was also right above our heads, so we both caught colds. When using the shower, the whole bathroom floods because the drain is at the other end of the room. Also, there are no electrical outlets in the bathroom. But otherwise the room was clean and the bed was large and comfortable. We especially liked the hotel grounds. It is really in the middle of the beach, there is soft sand everywhere and the restaurant is also right at the water. There is also a pool table and a ping pong table, both of which we used very often. Special praise must be given to the helpful, friendly hotel staff, who were always eager to make one's stay as comfortable as possible. When we arrived the first evening, our window would not close. There were some communication difficulties with the ladies at the reception because they really didn't understand a word of English. In the following days, however, all the ladies at the reception could speak perfect English, which made communication much easier. Nevertheless, the ladies gave us a new room for one night, which was a great relief. Right next to the hotel is a scooter rental. We rented a scooter here, which was really uncomplicated and cheap. In the area there is very cheap and delicious street food, for example at "Mama Thai Food" or "Life Style" with super nice owners. The breakfast in the hotel is delicious and there is a choice of several dishes. However, it is "a la carte" and you can only order one dish. The portion is a bit small for a grown man, so you would actually have to order 2-3 dishes to get full. Even the most expensive breakfast "Milky Bay Breakfast" includes only 2 slices of toast, 2 fried eggs, a few mushrooms, 2 slices of tomato and a single piece of bacon (?!). Fortunately, free fruit (pineapple or watermelon) is always offered as well, which helps you get a little fuller. Conclusion: if I had to rate our room exclusively, I would only give the resort 2 out of 5 stars. I've slept in beachfront bungalows in Thailand that cost between 10€-20€ per night and were more comfortable and modern than our bungalow (50€ per night). However, due to the fantastic service, the great facility and the nice staff I give 4 out of 5 stars and the following advice: Don't book the smallest, cheapest bungalow! We saw the better rooms from the outside and they looked really big and modern. If we had stayed in such a room, I would have definitely given 5 out of 5 stars!

Dear Guests Thank you for your comprehensive and constructive review. We take all your points to heart and appreciate you taking the time to send in a review. Yes you are correct .We have 4 room types of which the standard bungalow is the cheapest and certainly very cosy, your typical original Thai bungalow. It is a pity you did not get to experience our larger more luxurious rooms. Your comments are very important to us as it helps us continuously improve.We hope you will return one day to beautiful Koh Phangan.

We booked as it was close to KBA kitesurfing and it was a great find. We had a bungalow on the beach with a veranda overlooking the restaurant/bar and beach. The room was everything we needed, the big steps down to the bathroom can be a little challenging in the dark at night. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the loungers on the beach are great to hangout and chill. There is a restaurant on site but also plenty of places to walk to or short ride on a motorbike

Please please please try the salmon & or tuna! With vegetables and potatoes. Honestly, the best salmon I’ve had on the island! The staff are all so beautiful and helpful. It’s located on the beach, which nice weather you can be with your feet in the sand and if it’s raining there is also a gorgeously decorated inside area. It’s an absolute must to eat here a couple of times if your on the island. Also their fruit shakes, and cocktails are great! See you soon guys! Thank you for the wonderful smiles and service

I stayed for four weeks during Covid 19 in Milky Bay Resort. I really can recommend this place. Not only the clean and comfortable bungalows. Even the food, especially the seafood is excellent. The restaurant next to the beach allowed a beautiful evening with phantastic atmosphere. All staff during my stay was very helpful and friendly.

I have been blown away by the kindness and friendliness of the staff working at Milky Bay. So helpful at every opportunity to make the stay a special one. The superior bungalows are in great condition, very spacious and you walk right out onto the beach. The beach is clean with white sand. Good selection of food and drinks at very reasonable prices. Walking distance of some restaurants, bars, massage places, with a FamilyMart convenience store next door - you really don't need to leave the resort though. In terms of Covid the place is fully open (July) but the surrounding areas are extremely quiet without international tourism. Top marks to Milky Bay, thank you again to all the staff.
