Maka Thanee was amazing!”
Beautiful beach, very nice accommodations and clean. Close to everything. Massages on the beach were wonderful. Breakfast was great! People are super friendly. I wish I had scheduled more time on this beautiful island. Most importantly; Staff are amazing!!!! I am a young solo traveller- first trip away from home. Boonsiri had cancelled my ( paid in full) return trip to Bangkok very last minute ( I had a flight to catch from Bangkok) - Makathanee literally saved me. They were amazing in coordinating my return to the city and had arranged a high speed boat direct from the Makathanee pier to main land where they had arranged a private taxi to bring me directly to the airport. I will always be grateful to Makathanee and the staff for taking such great care in my safe return.
Beautiful location, nice staff, but service ancd accuracy o so”
pro very clean, kind and helpful staff, nice location on the beach, good breakfast, deluxe room is really nice and renovated contros: -we reserved a deluxe room with jacuzzi for 2nights, which has been confirmed, but surprise upon arrival the room is not available. we explained that we chose this resort especially for the jacuzzi, but no way. the friendly receptionist upgraded us for the first night in a front beach villa and the second night we had to change to a deluxe room. the villa is really old, everything looks old and damaged, matrass too very bad sleeping. Next day we moved to the deluxe that actually had a jacuzzi in it but it was out of service from a long time... except for the old jacuzzi the room looks really nice, fresh renovated and very clean. bed was very comfy and bathroom spacious and modern. very nice sea view from the wide balcony. so conclusion better to stay in a cheaper deluxe sea view room than in an expensive beach villa. -rooftop bistrot was closed
Booked bungalow S2 looking at the beach. Spacious, comfortable, great patio but chairs not as good as beach loungers. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice. Rented a new scooter from reception but only needed one day. Had lunch at Ball cafe. Try the brownie. Pizza down a ways at a modern restaurant was excellent. Visited coco Cape resort which is being modernized and has had the old bungalows at the water removed in favour of a sea wall. Worth a look to have a drink on the Pier. Took Kai Bae speedboat which dropped us off and picked us up directly from resort unlike bang Bao speedboat. All in all a great mini holiday
One of the best places to stay on Koh Mak”
If you are considering to go to Koh Mak, don't expect luxury. Koh Mak is still a raw tourist attraction that has not seen a lot of new development or renovations for a while. The Makathanee resort was a comfortable stay in a decent room and a beautiful location. Our room was a very good size and the staff were incredibly friendly. The location is perfect as you are walking distance to the restaurants and resorts to the North and to the South. It is located perfectly in the middle. There are also some stores around the hotel which is nice to go and grab a snack or a drink without having to pay hotel prices. Only downside, the bathroom did not ventilate very well, as a result of this there was some black mold on the ceiling in our bathroom.
Beautiful & peaceful getaway.”
Great beach with sunset, fabulous breakfast, very attentive & friendly staff, clean facilities, rooftop lounge, bungalow on the beach, delicious barbecue dinner on the beach, boat pier, close to stores & restaurants. This resort made for a very enjoyable visit to Ko Mak!
Big room, great location”
Big room, great location, next to speedboat pier, nice swimming pool and great restaurant. Only problem with this room is the walls are too thin, so could hear all the toilet and bedroom happenings in the room next door!
Nice but much better places to stay”
My personal preference when staying on a beautiful tropical Island like Koh Mak is quiet a beach bungalow. Some people may like the big cement resort type place. But Koh Mak has so many nicer beach front properties if your looking for the romantic relaxed island feel. Overall Maka Thanee is ok. Good breakfast. Decent beach.
Beachfront bungalows ”
The location is perfect. The resort is situated in front of the beach. At the back of the resort you will find some restaurants, shops, laundry service, motorbike rental, dive shops, a pharmacy and supermarkets. The resort it self is dated. The arise in de Beachfront bungalow S6 did not cool at all. They tried to repair it but it was still to hot in de room. The man and woman in the reception speak a little english and are really helpful. The breakfast was basic; fruit, yoghurt, eggs, pancakes, rice, soup etc. Nothing special. The location of the restaurant is good, open with a nice scabreuze. We also went to the other beach, that one is more nicer, but there are sandflies..... also at Makathanee Resort but less then the other beach. Be aware of these little devils. A lot of people got bitten. To explore the island you better rent a motorbike. The resort has potential, swimming pool is good. But is not worth the money they ask (anymore).
Some reviews I cannot understand. Very helpful staff. Good breakfast. We had a deluxe room with Seaview it was great. Clean and proper. OK some things should be refresh but to submit it up we liked it.
Staff not so polite, breakfast included but not many choises (and for sceumbled eggs every time eye rolls and negativity), first day water was gone for one hour, smell from shower was horrible, especially at night, water pipe was not fixed... A lot of cons, better choose Baan koh mak (we stayed there first five nights), only plus were free towels for pool (not really clean water and cold), and free water every day. If you want room cleaned you leave key on front desk. A lot of better choises. We got pool view villa but the pool was not really visible because of trees and not good light on the stairs to go into appartment. Better look elsewhere
Makathanee was the perfect place to stay on Koh Mak. The room was clean and very nice, with a comfortable bed and great views. The hotel pool was great; it was very clean and well kept. The beach was, likewise, very nice, and the resort provided lounge chairs right on the water. Hotel breakfast was good, and the staff went to great lengths to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. Probably the best hotel we've stayed at in Thailand, and we would recommend it to anyone!
The hotel was amazing. We had a problem in our room and the guy from the reception helped us. The only down side was that we rent the scooter one day and 4 hours more and he charged us for 2 days.
Nice spot right on the beach with seating on a grassy area. Unfortunately the pool was not in service for the four days that we were there. there was a problem trying to get the pool clean.
Great hotel in Koh Mak”
I would highly recommend Maka Thanee Resort because it is great. It is on a beautiful beach with a good sea view. The room was big, clean and cosy. Facilities and amenities were good. The roof top bar with the live music is very good in which you can enjoy a breathtaking sea view at the sunset and million stars at night.
Great but ”
We had the delux balcony with view room. Great room, very comfy but it could use some in depth cleaning and renovation (a light was hanging from the ceiling) also the pool was a bit disgusting, cleaned maybe once during our 4 night stay, went in only once cause it was just too hot. The beach full of rubbish. However, breakfasts were ok but not as good as the food was over lunch and dinner, not many choices for b-fast. Location is good with many restaurants, shops, pharmacy etc just few steps away. Also a plus was a pick up from the pier. Staff was amazing, friendly and helpful.
clean nice comfort”
clean nice and big room. staff was nice and take care well. safly place and comfort. in the room is nice and perfect size for 2 people. free internet wifi and good connection. overall is good for what I paid.
WARNING! Please, note that City view rooms has no hot water inside. Probably you will not change it in a high season. It was quite strange thing to us in the 20th century with no water for high price room (for Thailand 2 000 baht is upper than a medium price). But they really have a very relaxing beach, massage near the sea, small pool and so on. We want to go back to Koh Mak paradise.
Convenient Location a relaxing environment”
Very nice and bright room, however there was no power outlets in the bathroom, so impossible to shave and blow hair or put on make-up in front of a mirror. We had a room with jacuzzi, but there was no hot water installed, so utilizing the jacuzzi was no a pleasant experience, due to only cold water.
Not a very pleasant stay.”
This hotel needs some big maintenance. The start was good, a friendly staff member picked us up from the pier. At the hotel the reception staff was very nice friendly so we expect to have a nice stay here. When we entered the room, in a view seconds we saw that it needs to be renovated. Old curtains, not clean, old bedsheets and a interior from the 70’s. The shower pressure was very very low and the water extremely hot (we traveled a lot in Sout east Asia, but this was quite worse). We informed them we come with a baby and asked for a baby cot, in fact they arranged nothing for the baby. We booked a room with jacuzzi but we couldn’t use it because the door to it was looked and the key was not there... Overall the room was bad. The good thing is the staff, restaurant and pool area. We canceled our stay (1 night instead of 3). The reception staff helped me well with cancelleling our stay and make sure we will get our money back.
Good hotel in Koh Mak”
Hotel is quite nice, we booked bungalow in front of the sea which very nice. Staff is helpful and breakfast is very good. Also their food in hotel is quite cheap compare to other part in the island. We might return back this hotel in nearly future.
