The bungalows are very nice, clean and well designed but lack a few things, a few lamps and some nice lighting, lamps and so on would really go towards making the rooms feel a bit more homely and less spartan. Some extras like dressing gowns, soaps, handwash, beach towels and tea and coffee would also take the hotel to the next level.
The resort is well designed and nice enough, nothing super special, it reflects the price mid-range well. The beach isn't great but the pool is really nice and makes up for this.
Breakfast again matches the price, it's not amazing but at this low price you wouldn't expect it. They have some pastries, 2 types of fruit, bread, butter and so on and also a free a la carte selection from English Breakfast, American, pancakes and muesli. Some more options for vegetarians and some cheese and peanut butter would be nice to go with the toast.
The resort is fairly remote but it's a small island, you can get to the centre of the island in about 7 minutes on a moped, we rented mopeds for 250THB a day.
The staff were very nice and very willing to help. The cleaners were good too, room was cleaned immaculately every day and the bed linen was always clean and fresh too.
Restaurant isn't cheap but isn't wildly expensive and the quality is good, a soft-drink is about 20THB ($0.60).
All in all, a decent option at a fair price probably the nicest option on little Ko Mak. Would definitely stay again!
