Small but cozy resort. Standard accommodation but comfy enough for me. I stayed at one of the air-con bungalow (Chimpanzee Hut) very close to the beach (only few steps away). Room was ok, bathroom spacious and air con work quite well during hot day especially summer. There's no refrigerator and tv. in room but that's not my problem I got... More

The person who works in the reception doesn't seem to want to be there. Everything is a hazzle for him, not very friendly. I stayed 3 nights, no cleaning, breakfast is really the minimum, cochroaches in the bathroom. I'm not going back there.

Monkey Island resort is a very basic and spartan resort. Ideal to chill- out and spend some quality beach time. Breakfast was included and very poor. Welcome was also very poor - the guy at the reception was just too busy with bookings. He was not very friendly. Good vibes anyway in the hotel, crowded with international travellers. Averall a...

Monkey Island Resort is well located in what is probably one of the busiest areas of the Island, not that that is particularly busy by normal standards of course but there is a great choice of restaurants nearby. The beach is sandy and good but on the windy side of the island which is either good or bad depending if... More

I had an incredibly relaxing time and Monkey Island Resort in Koh Mak. The island is quite underdeveloped, quiet and calm - pretty unique in Thailand. Monkey Island resort was the perfect place to stay on the island. There were other travelers so we didn't feel isolated, the food was really tasty and they had a cool bar where people... More
