Good place for recreation”
we have been at maka thanee during the wet season, which meant that we partly were the only guests at the whole resort. so maybe my review is not fully applying to the high season: the hotel is situated next to a beach which isn't really encouraging one to swim. on the other hand the swimming pool is very nice. the rooms are very modern of style and clean with large glass fronts towards the sea. the restaurant serves standard but good thai food with a slight specialization on fish and sea food. the included breakfast was also good. the staff is very helpful and relaxed (actually the entire population of koh mak seems to be much more relaxed and not that demanding to tourists than in other regions of thailand) as in most hotels during the wet season there was a construction site, which was neither disturbing nor loud. to summarize: it is quiet place (at least in off-season) to relax but i think it is no place for people looking for action. the beach could be much better, but i think this is a charactaristic for the whole of koh mak.
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.
Very Nice Resort with a Family Atmoshphere”
I have been to Koh Mak 5 times and 4 of the 5 times I have stayed at Makathanee Resort. The location is excellent. In high season the Leelawadee Speedboat docks right there from the mainland letting you off right at the hotel entrance. It sits in what can best be considered the "heart of town" on the island with several restaurants, shops, Bangkok Hospital and a pharmacy within a short walk. They do a nice job keeping their part of the beach very clean, the views are beautiful and the grounds well kept. The rooms may not be 5-star resort plush, but they are very comfortable and clean. The restaurant food is good and they have a more than the adequate breakfast buffet. The best part of this resort is the family atmosphere. The staff is super friendly and willing to help. Employees are allowed to have their young children with them while they work and look after them like a village. Even the beach dogs become your friends (if you feed them enough). It is really very pleasant.
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.
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!
Ideal location ”
I stayed here twice during my stay in Koh Mak as I liked the location, it’s right on the pier so handy if you booked an early boat. The staff were lovely and helpful. Both rooms I had were nice. If you want your room cleaned you just let them know and leave your key at reception. The outside of the apartments could do with some paint to freshen it up. The gardens are kept lovely. The beach could be better but it’s just a short walk down to a nicer part of the beach at sky view resort. The only thing that rally spoiled it for me was the breakfast. Cold eggs aren’t the best but they will make them fresh for you if you ask, although they still don’t seam happy to. The omelettes were nice but again sometimes cold.
Nice Resort in nice location”
Maka Thanee is a nice, quiet resort on the beach in the center of the main road in town. It has nice grounds and a very friendly staff. The food is good, the rooms are nice, and it is very convenient.
Nice hotel in a beautiful beach”
We were very happy with choosing to stay in this resort. The staff is very helpful, the place is cosy, the bungalow with a sea view has everything one needs: comfy bed, decorated with fresh flowers, good shower, fridge and air conditioning. The beach is huge, just be aware of the sea urchins when the tide is low. The sea in front of the hotel is very nice for snorkeling in the morning with plenty of sea life. Overall, in our opinion it was perfect place to stay in Koh Mak. Highly recommended!
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.
Relaxing place in a quiet and beautiful beach”
We spent 6 days in Maka Thanee Resort enjoing a quiet and familiar atmosphere. The hotel is very good balanced in quality and price. The staff are very friendly and useful. You feel as you move from your home to a second home but in a very quite beach.
Gorgeous beach, friendly staff, koh mak is amazing”
We loved our time in koh mak and ended up extending our stay here. The room was comfortable and clean and the AC worked great! The hotel is directly on the beach with great views and truly peaceful surroundings. There are kayaks available for guests and also a snorkeling and dive shop right across the street. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. There are a handful of restaurants located on the street opposite to the hotel so you have a few food options within a 2-5 minute walk. The hotel breakfast was decent, nothing exciting but it's incl and the views from the restaurant are fabulous.
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.
This resort has a great location on Koh Mak. Close to other restaurants and a wonderful beach. We stayed in a beach bungalow and a room with seaview, and we were very pleased with both. Clean rooms. The restaurant and the breakfast was OK but not more than that. We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful place.
Nice Hotel. Great Location”
I really like the Maka Thanee. It is right at the pier where the boat from Trat lets out making it very convenient. The rooms are nice and the staff very friendly. It is centrally located in the middle of town with access to everything.
Best beachfront hotel with value price. Room was very nice and clean. Pool is a bit dirty but i dont usually swimming in the pool so. One thing is "be careful with the sandflies if you're here during raining or low season" Besides that this hotel is the best one so far in Koh Mak
Good value for money if you take the budget room”
maka thanee claims to be a 3star resort, but it's not (anymore). However, if you book a budget room you will get a good value for money. Location is next to the beach and directly to the pier. Breakfast is included and is ok to start your day with. Around the resort are a lot of little restaurants and bars. We enjoyed our stay here, but if you are looking for a luxurieus resort, then Koh Mak has plenty more options.
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!
great hotel but quiet resort”
if you are looking for a place to escape from the city to relax over the weekend, Maka Thanee resort seems to be the right plce for you. the island is quiet and not so many things to do but sunbathing and water activities.
We stayed for 1 night in the cheap room, which was as described and OK with a comfortable bed. The location was great, right on the beach and right on the bit of Koh Mak with the most choice of places to eat. We only had 1 breakfast which was buffet style and not particularly good but filled a hole. We only booked for 1 night so we could then look for somewhere else to stay, some of the rooms looked lovely but were way over our budget.
really satisfied with Maka Thanee
