The location is superb with a small private beach, restaurant and bar right next to the gently lapping waves, and a great staff who were attentive, courteous and happy to help. The restaurant dinner was excellent though pricy and the pool, sunbeds etc were very good. The room however was not at all good. No wardrobe (we lived out of... More

Our villa room was full of ants, the hot water didn't work for the entire four days we stayed there, and the food was really quite disgusting. To top it off, one of the waiters made inappropriate comments to my wife when she ordered a banana milkshake. A total waste of money. The photos they use to advertise the room... More

We loved it here! The room was massive and we slept well. The food was really very good! Breakfasts and pizzas were awesome! One slightly overzealous staff member made us a bit nervous to go to breakfast both other than that the staff were great! Beach is pretty and we swam and saw tiny crabs. The area was quiet and...

Milky bay is an all round fantastic resort. The people truely are amazing (particularly win and Mai), the food is top class, fantastic facilities (great pool, badminton, pool table, table tennis) and beach at your doorstep. We stayed here during the full moon and it was ideal. It was away from the hustle and bustle of the party but still... More

Stayed here for 5 days around the full moon party. We wanted to be a reasonable distance from the full moon beach though and this resort is about 15 mins drive away. The resort has its own private beach too. We stayed in the cheapest bungalow but was ok, a little small but perfectly adequate. The restaurant serves excellent food... More
