We visited Marriot's Mai Khao between 30th April and 8th May 2014. Had a fantastic time. Staff very pleasant and the food choice was immense. Quality was pretty good especially the breakfast, it really was fit for a king.
Fresh Fruit, Smoothies by the pool every day as well as Ice Pops for the kids. A 2hr happy hour kept me and the girls fully happy each early evening.
All the staff were amazing and very kind and generous with their time and advice. My two girls and wife spent numerous time in the kids club.
We will definitely be back. We didn't use the Spa and there is cheap massages on the beach less than 10 mins walk away. Location is ok but away from everything. We hired taxis 2 days for 4-5 hour minimum. Plenty of traffic jams on the island but we had a great english speaking driver on our second day which is a must.
10 mins walk from beach and 5 min walk from a shopping arcade. Plenty of places to eat there that were cheaper than the hotel restaurants. we with eat there or at the hotel. Pretty good value though, we didn't eat at the JW Marriot though as food was fine everywhere else. Keep clear of the Sales Reps though trying to get you to attend their presentations..really annoying and never give up….
Only complaints were the smell of our sofa which despite being cleaned twice still stank. Also the first few days the drains in the shower smelt but this cleared up after a few days. The service again was perfect, any complaints, even like an afternoon pool clean, were addressed within minutes. One time the cleaners were in our place before we had made it back from the desk. All in all, nothing wrong, for us it was amazing, ad the second week hotel was pretty empty so made our stay even more pleasant. One final suggestion is to make the pool water a bit cooler. In the day between 11am-3pm it was like taking a hot bath, but in the pool. Not really a place to cool off, so my suggestion is making sure you have the villa with plunge pool…Once again, thanks for our lovely holiday, we will be back.
