Lovely hotel resort in beautiful landscaped garden”
Good time is a beautiful resort. It has spacious grounds, planted with banana, palms and flowering shrubs (frangipani, agapanthus and hibiscus and more) and consists of a serious of different modern houses, built to a traditional Thai style with striking covered balconies. There is a swimming pool and spa and various locations from which you can see the sea, view the sunsets and chill over a beer. There are 2 white sand beaches to which you can walk (5-10min walk), which are not at all crowded and fringed with coconut palms. Koh Mak is a small island, with about 10 restaurants adjoining the main beach. If you want a vibrant nightlife, this is not the place to go, but if you want a beautiful and peaceful holiday, this is certainly the place to come.
Beautiful resort, exceeded our expectations”
Koh Mak is absolutely stunning. For us it had the perfect balance between daytime activities and low-key nightlife without becoming over-developed and spoilt. Goodtime Resort was fantastic and was the highlight of our holiday. We had booked a superior double but I’m pretty sure we were upgraded as we had a massive suite to ourselves with a huge roof terrace, sitting area and lovely teak details right by the pool. The location is great as you can walk to both beaches and a range of restaurants and bars. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Josh –(an American guy working there) and we were made to feel very much at home. If I had to come up with a negative it would be that the shower in our room needed some work, there was no hot water and the pressure was very low but this was a minor issue and I would definitely recommend Goodtime as a great place to stay.
Wonderful house with great service!”
we stayed for 3 nights, and it was great! the best part was the closest beach--always empty, so picturesque. the house itself was really nice too, with a fantastic deck with a gorgeous view. the staff was so helpful with everything, breakfast was always delicious (they even had real coffee!!!), and it was an all-around pleasant stay. i didn't know this about koh mak until i got there, but this is very important: there are no atms or currency exchange places on the island! (yes, it really is that small) there is a man that i was able to exchange usd with, but that was it! so just be prepared for this! goodtime resort is a great place to stay!
Beautiful Place with charm and positiv character”
This was the perfect place to relax and still feel the Thai atmosphere, even you are on a small island like Koh Mak. Both, the resort and the island really touched us. This is our new place in Thailand. The mangement is German and you can see this latest at breakfst. German dark, healthy and delicious bread. Clean rooms and our tranfer was very well organized. The house was bigger then we ever expected and very private. Nice garden and charming (but small) pool.
The location is Great. The beach is long and lonely,great for relaxing. The room is excellent! You have a great view of the sea from the room. Good service and good food. Price are not over charge. Good place for relax. It was good time at koh mak.
Our favourite place on the island”
the resort is on top of the hill which is in between the 2 sides of the island where they both have very nice beach, and we are very glad we stayed at good time because we had easy access to both beaches, which means we could walk down to one beach for the sunset and walk to the other for moon bathing at night! the resort was very green and spacious, had a lovely reception/restaurant building which overlooked the ocean and some islands. we loved having the german standard breakfast there every morning. our room, the thai teak house was very cosy and clean with large balcony and modern bathroom. another prop to add to this place is there is a very friendly and convenient local restaurant/mini mart right next door to the resort. we were there during the low season when many shops and restaurants were closed, so it was very good to have them there. they also do laundry service which the resort doesn't do. there is also a hotel opposite to good time on top of the hill which has a restaurant with great view. the rooms looked boring so we didn't want to stay there, but it's definitely worth going there for a romantic dinner or drinks. we loved good time, we ended up extending 4 more nights there!
Great stay ”
Our stay is was great! The manager Khun Peak was just amazing and always so helpful, friendly, kind. All the staffs made us feel at home. The room was super spacious and the bed was sooooo comfortable! Large balcony with a great view. The resort was full of greeneries and nature, they have several feline friends to also keep you company :) ( super friendly dogs and cats especially Brownie who would always wanna stay with us and Bruno the dog who loves to go for rides :) ) We definitely recommend to stay here if you love nature and animals. Location was close within walking distance to the beach ( Ao Suan Yai ) which is probably one of the nicest and close to Koh Kham that you can even kayak to.
Beautiful accommodation & surroundings”
We stayed here on 2 occasions, and both times the accommodation was very spacious and beautifully furnished. We have a 9 and 11 year old who loved the swimming pool, the swings, the grounds, and the playroom. Owners were very welcoming, assisted with onward travel arrangements. Breakfast was good, as were other meals. Gardens are beautiful, its a really quiet relaxed atmosphere and central location is great. Its a maximum of 10 minutes walking slowly to 2 beaches, we preferred the one on the north by Koh Mak resort as it was kept very clean. Highly recommended.
I was very pleased with our stay at Good Times Resort. What stood out, was the cleanliness, the friendliness of the Manager, the central location, and the quality of breakfast. Although the Resort is centrally located, I recommend a motor bike to get you around the island, plus it is fun. You to need to be mindful, if you arrive to by air to Trat Airport, the last ferry to the Koh Mak may depart before your later afternoon flight. Just make sure you coordinate those schedules. All in all, very happy.
Great Little Teak House”
We loved staying in our little teak house. We had a lovely private patio and were near to the pool and the side entrance to the property. Our house was comfortable and clean and was cleaned daily. The decor is lovely. The hot water works as does the ac. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The layout of the houses ensures privacy. Good Time resort picked us up from the pier and drove us up the hill to the resort. breakfasts were generally good. We didn't eat at the restaurant so can't comment on that. The only down side was that Good Time is not right on the beach. However it is only about 150m from the one main beach and 300m from the other. The main part of the "village" is also only about 150m from the resort and there is a good selection of restaurants, motorbike and bicycle rentals, laundry service and shops nearby. We had problems with wifi reception in our house, but managed to log on in the restaurant and at the pool. Wifi connections on the whole island are a bit unreliable anyway.
Great owner and staff”
We stayed 2 nights at the good time resort which was 2 good nights on koh mak. Great manager and owner who were friendly and helpful. Resort is on a hill between 2 beaches which is great for catching both. Nice pool to dip into after the sea to cool down.
Chilled out and relaxing”
Our stay was very relaxing due to the helpful staff and peaceful surroundings. The staff have a good level of English and are happy to help when needed. We stayed in the Islanda apartment block. It's a new build and the rooms are clean and comfortable. Just down the road from the apartment is a shop where you can get drinks, snacks and other basic items. The hotel has other houses in the ground that looked very nice and are of varying size. The place is situated on a hill between two good beaches. As well as this there are eating establishments close by. For a more detailed (and a lot better written) account of the resort and area please read
Very relaxing stay. ”
What we liked: Beautiful Thai houses set in a very spacious and lovely tropical garden. Most houses feature a patio/gazebo which makes a very space to sit/drink/relax/read. Lots of privacy. Friendly staff. Houses were nicely decorated and comfortable. Resort lobby and breakfast area have a beautiful view. Resort is roughly in the middle of the island, meaning you can walk to either one of the main beaches in minutes. Pick-up and drop-off from the speedboat pier was great. Koh Mak is real getaway paradise. What we disliked: Low water pressure in the shower. Lots of mosquitos but no mosquito net, we got plenty of bites. Pool was out of order. Restaurant was so-so in terms of food quality (there were much tastier restaurants at other resorts for the same price).
Good time at good time resort”
What an amazing little place. Goodtime resort provides reasonable priced accomodation where there is little choice on a small Island. Picturesque views accross the bay, a very family friendly resort with a good restaurant serving delicious breakfast and dinner. I highly recommend it.
Nice hotel with friendly staff”
I and my 3 children had a lovely stay at Goodtime. We were moved into a 2 bed Thai villa which gave us lots of space. It is not a luxurious 5 star place but that is its charm and if you are after a peaceful stay in a lovely setting then this is great. The staff don't speak much English (and the resort does warn you of this) but the manager - Josh - when we stayed was American and very helpful. The breakfast provided doesn't have an extensive range but is good with cereal, bread, fresh fruit and they will cook you eggs to order. The rooms are clean and large (be aware the beds are typically Thai - the mattresses ate very firm!) The gardens are large and well maintained with lots of space between the villas and the pool area is nice. The hotel is set on a ridge between two beaches which are a 5 - 10 minute walk downhill. The views are lovely. There are restaurants on both beaches which were good for dinner, or you can eat in the Goodtime restaurant. We went for the children to do a Junior Open Water PADI course. The hotel can arrange the boat transfers if you let them know and will collect you and drop you off at the piers.
Perfectly located between 2 different beaches”
This resort consists of many independent villas surrounded by nice and well maintained gardens. Very pleasant to walk through them to go to the beach. By the way, talking about beach, you can actually choose between two different beaches, as this resort is located exactly in the middle of the island. And as the island is quite small, both are located at a walkable distance (5-10 mins). The staff is friendly and helpful. However, the only small minus is that they apparently tend to run out of things daily for breakfast (bacon and ham for example), but it could be a supply problem, as the island is very small.
Spacious villas in a tropical paradise”
we enjoyed a wonderful week at the good times resort - the villa we had (orchid) was large, nicely decorated and set in a garden of lush vegetation. we appreciated the friendliness and helpfulness of the entire staff. the food served from their restaurant was delicious.
Good times at the Goodtime”
After one night at the Goodtime Resort we moved across the road to the Koh Mak Villas (co-run by Goodtime) for less construction noise, better accommodation and superb views. The resort has its own beach on a nearby island and provide a 15 minute boat trip – well worth the adventure. Lots of good walks around the island to cultural sites with other resorts offering a break for food and drink.
Great location, close to both beaches on island”
We just loved our stay! The owner treated us very well. We definitely will consider coming back! We had a 2 bedroom villa with plenty of room for our 3 older children. The villa is close to the beaches, which are just beautiful, with no tourist touts, and noisy jet skis, also very few people on beaches. Koh Mak is the best kept secret in Thailand.
Good, but busy with few staff.”
The place is good, except I can see it is busy with only a few staff. The rooms are good except some of the rooms were still being worked on. Example our sink was leaking and the hot water generator for the shower stopped working. Though our friends in another villa had no problems, so probably just that room. The beds are the hardest I have ever slept on, even though I don't mind hard beds. The food from the cook is good, but breakfast is simple compared to Ao Kao resort. There are some really great restaurants on the island that make up for it.
