We recently stayed here on a referral from a friend who has taken out the Marriott Vacation Club package.
The room we were given was a lovely, big, spacious 2 bed apartments that could sleep up to 6 people. We felt very spoilt as there was only 3 of us. The kitchen is well equipped with just about everything that you could want to cook a decent family meal. We were given 4 large bottles of drinking water each day and the apartment was spotlessly clean. I couldn't fault it.
We were a little disappointed that the facilities and grounds were not as big as the Marriott next door. Although they had similar things on offer (pool, kids pool, play kids club, gym etc) they were a lot smaller. We weren't allowed to use the big Marriott's facilities either which was a shame as our 3yr old would have had an absolute field day in the larger, much more entertaining kids pool, grounds and kids club.
The beach from this hotel was a short buggy trip away unlike the other Marriott, where is right on their doorstep. Although this didn't cause a problem for us I can see why it might put some people off. It's easy to get to (the hotel will take you on demand which was great) but there is no return buggy, unless you walk to the shuttle bus pick up point which is easily a good 10-15 minute walk away (so you might as well walk home). It might not be too easy with tired kids at the end of the day. There is a booth set up on the beach for towels, but this shuts at 5pm.
Finally, food at both the hotels can be expensive and the supermarket close by is also expensive. We paid for a little more baggage allowance on the way out, took our own food and just bought basics when we were there.
Overall the Marriott Mai Khao Beach hotel is lovely, the staff were cheerful, the room was great, but we thought that it did feel like the smaller, less important Marriott compared to the one next door.
