The hotel does not live up to the presentation shown on its website. This is quite common in Thailand where a couple of seasons of hot sunshine and sea weather can turn a sparkling new compound into quite a drab looking one. We went in August which is off-season so fortunately the hotel was not busy. The pool and surrounding area was a bit dirty and the room had gaps in the doors so insects found it easy to wander in! The staff are friendly enough but we had to ask rather than them knowing what was required. The hotel is located on a poor beach for Koh Mak as it is very rocky, limiting the chance to walk etc. Other resorts on the island have far better beaches. The only redeeming feature was the restaurant which is one of the best for the hotels on the island.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Voted the most beautiful resort on Koh Mak, even by the other resort owners on the island. All beach, sea view Villas on a serene private beach. Amazing endless swimming pool with jacuzzi seat and always enough sun chairs and tables in the restaurant. The Koh Mak Retreat is truly a place where you can get away from it all. ... more less
