My partner and I had a wonderful stay here. The pool in the garden was a high feature, very relaxing after the sea. The room was spacious and the balcony was a nice touch. Clean, comfortable stay. The staff is very nice, although maybe over worked. They were running around a lot. I feel bad for the manager. Overall, great experience.
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.
Quite nice place ”
The bungalow was a bit older but nicely placed in that big garden
Lovely rooms and setting, centrally located”
Peacful, pretty and relaxing setting. Lovely rooms. Not right on the beach but only 5 minutes walk away. Great value.
Never again! ”
Except location which is good because it’s close to both side of the island there s nothing good in this old resort. Cockroaches!!!!
Luxurious, great location”
5 mins walk from one beach and 8 mins from the other make this places good bet. However, the huge garden makes this place perfect. Helpful and friendly staff, beautiful apartment. The only minor negative was that the mattress was a bit hard for my taste...
Great stay at Koh Mak”
Great and friendly manager, he picked up and delivered us for free and give us an upgrade! You can rent very good scooters delivered to your room. Wifi is only available in the reception, but it wasn't a problem for us. We stayed at chilli house and it was the best view ever!
Not too good, but still ok”
The location is ok. Far from beach but still can walk. The towel smell so bad. The shower is very slowly flow at 5pm and then stop at 8pm. However, we still can take shower before 7am. No anyone come to clean the room or during we stay even though there are a lot of mayflies. No one come to throw away the garbage. If you stay here many days, you may have to throw away the garbage by yourself. The staff looks kind. However, Not sure that we can trust him. The first restaurant he brought us is really expensive without any tasty food (had only pork and squid). That restaurant doesn't have the good atmosphere, the food is bad, lot of flies around, but still expensive. One day he promised to bring us to a seafood at 8pm, we called him since 7.15 to confirm to pick us, but he didn't answer. No any call back even though we called him for 3 times. It was good that we asked others to pick us instead of him. If we waited for him, we won't have dinner and the supermarket ( that we can walk too) is closed at 8pm, it will be no food for us at that night. The last day that we will go back to the land, we don't have any confident that he will keep his promise to send us to the harbor. However, he sent some one to pick up us. We also bough the snorkeling tickets with the hotel. At first, the price was agreed at 700THB per person. However, he charge more 40THB per person. Thinking in the good way, he doesn't know the price. So, he didn't tell the correct price at first. However, the good thing for here is we got upgrade the room from 2 rooms with 1 extra bed to 2 rooms and 1 small rooms. Ans the outside atmosphere of this hotel looks good.
Good Time is Great”
I had a fantastic stay at this characterful and friendly hotel. It's not on the beach but it's position in a tropical garden on a ridge overlooking the sea is fantastic. The Thai villas are lovely and the atmosphere is extremely mellow. I really hope to come back
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.
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.
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
would love to come again”
Very nice. Thai-German owner takes good care and has build a special and quiet hotel situated in beautiful gardens. The Thai manager is very attentive and willing to help. It's not at the beach but within walking distance. Around ten minutes.
First of all has to be mentioned that the attention of the staff was outstanding. We travel quite often, but cannot remember to have been pampered in such a nice way, already starting with the pick-up at the pier. Whatever was needed was provided, sometimes even before we could mention. The owner recommended to us the probably best Thai massage we ever had - and that was not the only good he did to us. All we can say for this is "Thank you so much" and for sure we will return here again. The Thai house was very nice and well equipped. The idea to return money in case of not using the aircon is a nice way to contribute for the protection of the environment - not everybody will do so (unfortunately), but everybody is free to do as he prefers. The absolute highlight there is to sit in the small pagoda outside and watch the fishing boats out on sea. The breakfast was small, but delicious and no words can describe the peaceful and cosy atmosphere on the restaurant's terrace on early morning. If you have luck and the owners are present themselves - a sympathic Thai guy and his lovely German wife - don't be shy to ask them for the best places to go, you won't regret.
Foreign manager takes care of everything”
The only downside was the Thai cook. She was mean and rude and seemed put out every time you asked for something and we speak decent Thai and would make polite simple requests or questions and she would snap back like a bull dog. Then if we passed her in the road she was all smiles, weird. Really the only downside to our time here.
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.
Great location to both beaches”
we met the owner of the place, who was very friendly and offered to take us to see the sunset on the 1st day we arrived. he also offered to take us on a tour of island. very nice man, he can speak english, german, and thai. the house we stayed in was nice with trees all around and birds singing in the morning. close to both beaches on island, beautiful clear water.
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.
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!
Nice Thai houses with large terraces in lush garde”
Resort consists of large Thai houses spread over large garden grounds, assuring privacy and calm, Rooms nicely decorated with large terraces. Bed blankets insufficient resulting in continuous mosquito bites. Staff very pleasant and helpful. with a motorbike, all beaches within 2 minutes drive
