The resort itself is very nice. There is lots of shade which is a nice break and the rooms are modern. We got a deluxe suite Positives - for us central. Close to the half moon party - right on the beach - the male reception guy during the day and the male reception guy at night are very nice... More

We literally just stayed here for 5 nights and we had the best time. We had a group of 10 and we planned it around the full moon party. The staff were very attentive, laid back and accomodating. Win and Yu who are a couple were super friendly and made our stay even better! Rooms were great, half of us... More

We stayed 4 nights at Milky Bay during the January Full Moon period and loved every day spent there. Our upstairs bungalow was massive with a full size fridge and lounge area. Even though it was peak season, we did not hear the neighbouring properties music at all. Food at the restaurant is excellent, some of the best we had... More

We paid £10 each per night and this was total value for money!! I usually have a 4-5* hotel policy only and had to compromise for budget purposes. But I was so pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It was so different, very quirky, food was great, we even had breakfast included in that price! The service at the hotel was... More

Positives: quite gorgeous beach, restaurant staff are outstanding and very accommodating (yu & win). Food is delicious and there are various rooms to choose from. Negatives: cockroaches (3 in one day is too much and it's not bc of the heat). Our two friends rooms had them too. Th delux beach front had them as well. Food is over priced.... More

Rooms: Very tiny (at least the standard and superior bungalows). No storage (no cupboards, no hangers, no hooks, not even nails. Untight floor planks let in insects. No bedlights (some people like to read during holidays! ). Not even half the rooms have the "spacious balcony" promised on the website. Bathroom: Not even close to "Western standards". The shower is... More

I am in love with this place. Everything was absolutely perfect. From arriving at reception to departure. The welcome drink was fantastic and immediately puts you in a great mood :) The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. I didn't meet any management (it wasn't necessary) but whoever runs the resort is doing an amazing job. The room we... More

We stopped in a bamboo garden bungalow which although small (nowhere to put your clothes) was otherwise excellent. The bar, beach and restaurant were all good and the staff were friendly and attentive. There are a mix of guests from young backpackers to older couples and families and it suits all. Don't expect luxury or insect free rooms - you... More
