We loved our stay at Sea Breeze. I only booked it two days ahead, and found when I phoned to enquire that I was not understood, but when I emailed the replies were in perfect English.
Our impression is that the resort is fairly new and has been well built with good quality materials, everything works! It’s a shame no-one told them the fridge should have an independent electricity supply though. The panoramic villa we had was lovely and very clean. The resort is located amidst a rubber plantation, up a track from the medical centre, on a bay overlooking Ao Nid pier and Koh Kut. There is no beach, and the sea is not clear, but the view is fabulous, and the infinity pool is absolutely great.
The food from the restaurant was very good quality and we found to be well priced. We didn’t bother to go anywhere else. We had two loads of laundry done, and it was returned fresh and clean within 24hrs, again very reasonable costs. We did a morning cookery lesson round the bay, and took the results back to the resort where they were happy to keep in in their fridge and reheat it for me for dinner.
We only booked three nights initially, and looked around Koh Mak at other resorts to book another three nights, but basically decided we had made the right choice from the start and decided not to move.
Everyone at Sea Breeze was really friendly, helpful and welcoming and we felt completely at home. The only reason this resort doesn’t get top marks is that the restaurant and bar shuts up early at 9:00pm. We were OK to sit in the restaurant area for the wifi (entertainment provided by the numerous geckos!), and we were more than happy to sit on our balcony overlooking the bay and relaxing, but although we had our own beer in the fridge, as mentioned the fridge turned off when we were not in the room, so it was difficult to keep it cold. The TV only shows thai channels, but we found the English speaking MCOT expat channel entertaining, especially the lesson on how to shop at IKEA!
I'd recommend it to everyone.
