Seems like a scam of extra charges once you are trapped on the island”
A place with huge potential for those seeking the easy life on a secluded beach (note: stones, not sand), but there's a mix of tired management and rude tourists that occasionally gives an unwelcoming vibe. The only option for a restaurant is crazy expensive compared to normal prices in Thailand, 2-300% of normal prices. The average 120 BHT curry will cost you 400 BHT. A bottle of water 120 BHT, a big Chang 230 BHT. The food is ok, but you have to see past the fact that you are being ripped off once you a trapped on the island.
The staff is friendly and helpful, but the service at the restaurant needs some improvement.
There's something about the boat, your connection to the outside world. There's a free boat 3 times a day (both back and forth), last one going to the island at 5 pm. It's a bit unclear whether you can ask for boats at other time and at what cost. The announced cost is 500 BHT per person per way.

payed for 2 nights got thrown out after 1”
we booked same day as we arrived late to the hotel around 19.00 and we called the hotel multiple Times to arrange the boat trip to the hotel. once we arrive the receptionist tell us we can Only stay one night even tho we had Hotel confirmation for 2 nights... she could have said anything while we were on our det but she would rather trick us out to the Island stay there for 3 hours go to sleep and the check out and end up on the streets. we however slept in the big villa wich was dirty overall. expensive food and mediocre food. terrible service from reception. after this nightmare experience we were glad we only stayed 1 night...

Paradise for Slow-Life lovers”
Great location, just 20 min. by boat, we recommend especially the Bungalows - nice design, great location with sea view and only 7 meters to the sea! Great beach, silence, wild Nature and tasty food, very nice staff and no crowds of people!

Nice place ”
Our trip to Baan Mai began by waiting in the sun for 45min for the boatman to be ready to go. The hotel itself is in a lovely spot and the staff are pleasant and attentive. The details on the internet made it appear as it the family suite is two story. It is not. It was only one room. Also a negative for our group was that the bathrooms in the beachfront rooms are outside. However, it is an amazing location- peaceful and not crowded. For 300 baht each person they will take you to the other side of the island which has good snorkeling. (info sheet said 300 baht per boat but they insisted on charging us 300 baht each) The beach in front of the hotel has sharp rocks- beware. However if you walk down towards the other hotel near the pier the beach is much better.

Hotel and the place itself is very beautiful. The staff was friendly but unfortunately very incompetent. We had to wait in the pier 1.5 hour to be picked up to the island. Then two hours waiting time till our room was to be made. In the restaurant waiting time for the dinner was two hours and we didn't get all the dishes we'd ordered. Food was very expensive but there we're no competition so we could't eat anywhere else. The room included a bottle of water every day, but we had to ask water and we noticed that it was charged afterwards. The sum wasn't that much but raised mistrust. When leaving we didn't get any specified bill but a total sum of alla purcase, witch ha never happened in any other hotel in Thailand.. We were totally disappointed to the hotel management.

Dirty room expensive food”
The island itself is beautiful not for swimming. No proper sand. the hotel is not even near a 4 star, the room is not what is promised, there is no balcony or sea view.
The bedsheet and quilt cover haven’t been changed before our arrival found period blood and the sheet, after complaining to the owner.
The sheet were changed but not the cover as the same stains are everywhere.
The food are very very expensive, more expensive than Australian thai food and as they are the only restaurant in the area. You have no choice. Mum and baby both got running stomach after eating there.
The restaurant promised free upgrade and restaurant credit, when asked she said “busy season don’t have”
Avoid booking to this hotel.

We spent 4 nights in Baan Mai in Dec 2018. We had opted for the large 3 bedrooms villa. They have only one large villa. The villa is very convenient if you go with children or with friends. We booed the place to be away from the crowd and loud party places. Baan Mai is perfect to relax. Th island remained wild and it is a great place to observe the nature. Many amazing birds, frogs, geckos, varans, butterflies and of course the many cats sharing the place. before going we did read reviews and we saw many guest complaining about animals, the island being quite etc.. But when you book that place this is what you are looking. Others complained about high food prices. I disagree. You might or not pay 1 or 2 USD more for dish, but if you take into consideration the portions are sufficient for 2 and the food quality then it all sums up. The restaurant would cook what ever you want even if not on the menu. They would do anything to accommodate you.
The managers, ladies are wonderful.
