Such a bad experience. 1. The bathroom looks terrible. I have never seen something so ugly and dirty. 2. No protection at the windows against mosquitoes. It was so warm, but we couldn't open the windows because we were afraid of mosquitoes and other animals who could come in on the window. So almost no sleep during the 8 days... More

We spent a day at than sadet beach with friends and ate in this restaurant. The owners were very friendly, the location is amazing. The portions of the food were big, it was quick to serve and good. The smoothies were of great combinations (pineapple with lime and mint, watermelon- orange). A good place to spend a day in (and... More

All I can stay for this is WOW. $20 a night on the beach line, pure beauty. Food was slim but huge portions. You need transport to get to town as its a good half hour drive but it is Truely beautiful. Nice cliffs and hills and the ocean is to die for. Would definitely stay here again being a... More

On my second visit to Mai Pen Rai this year it is just as warm and impressive as ever. If you are looking for a beautiful bungalow with nice but basic amenities this is the best place for you. Generous and kind staff, beautiful beach and great food. The bungalows on the rocks are my favorite. Truly a beautiful place... More

Another fantastic holiday was had at the wonderful Mai Pen Rai! This is our 8th Stay at this little slice of paradise :-) In our eyes absolutely everything is perfect for a peaceful, relaxing stay away from it all. The bungalows are unique and a great place to stay and such an adventure for families. The restaurants boosts a very... More

Despite some big changes on the island over the five years since my last visit, not much has changed at tranquil Mai Pen Rai. Staff members are still friendly and accommodating. The menu has changed somewhat, but the quality of the authentic Thai cuisine remains outstanding. We stayed in our usual Bungalow on the Rocks, this time on the South... More

There are times you want to be on vacation and just relax but you don't want to be the anonymous tourist who's just here to spend a few days and pay. At Mai Pen Rai, the people are real, they are excited one day, tired the next, super helpful and very friendly. That's what I call genuine, at least on... More

I've stayed in Mai Pen Rai for 3 nights in he middle of February. And my feelings about it are really confused. When I arrived after 12 h trip and after struggling with taxi drivers at the port who were refusing to take us there for a normal rate saying that it's too far, by reservation was missing. Apparently they... More
