“Clean resort but lacks atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We stayed here for 7 days and that was probably 4 too many. If you want clean and well maintained resort then seabreeze has all that. I just did not like the dogs. Very aggressive, forget about an early jog with these hounds to scare you. I dont understand why some resorts have to have aggressive dogs when you are on such a small island. We moved down to white sands resort and really enjoyed the atmosphere !

Clean rooms with aircon, and fab views, make sure you get a villa that has its own private verandah, as two of them do not, but otherwise excellent choice. Food fantastic, and staff very helpful especially the older gentleman who seems to do everything.

This just was so nice. Clean rooms with aircon, hot shower and fridge. Very beautiful are and swimming pool was so nice with the view to ocean. Because not on beach, no annoying sandflies!! Great food, great stuff and SMILING dogs. We were in three different resorts at Koh Mak and this definitely was the best one.

We loved our stay at Sea Breeze. I only booked it two days ahead, and found when I phoned to enquire that I was not understood, but when I emailed the replies were in perfect English.
Our impression is that the resort is fairly new and has been well built with good quality materials, everything works! It’s a shame no-one told them the fridge should have an independent electricity supply though. The panoramic villa we had was lovely and very clean. The resort is located amidst a rubber plantation, up a track from the medical centre, on a bay overlooking Ao Nid pier and Koh Kut. There is no beach, and the sea is not clear, but the view is fabulous, and the infinity pool is absolutely great.
The food from the restaurant was very good quality and we found to be well priced. We didn’t bother to go anywhere else. We had two loads of laundry done, and it was returned fresh and clean within 24hrs, again very reasonable costs. We did a morning cookery lesson round the bay, and took the results back to the resort where they were happy to keep in in their fridge and reheat it for me for dinner.
We only booked three nights initially, and looked around Koh Mak at other resorts to book another three nights, but basically decided we had made the right choice from the start and decided not to move.
Everyone at Sea Breeze was really friendly, helpful and welcoming and we felt completely at home. The only reason this resort doesn’t get top marks is that the restaurant and bar shuts up early at 9:00pm. We were OK to sit in the restaurant area for the wifi (entertainment provided by the numerous geckos!), and we were more than happy to sit on our balcony overlooking the bay and relaxing, but although we had our own beer in the fridge, as mentioned the fridge turned off when we were not in the room, so it was difficult to keep it cold. The TV only shows thai channels, but we found the English speaking MCOT expat channel entertaining, especially the lesson on how to shop at IKEA!
I'd recommend it to everyone.

We had a fantastic stay at this resort. It is nicely situated with a fantastic view. Far away in the horizon you can see Cambodia. The kitchen is great. You can chose between both thai and european dishes. Our oldest daughter is allergic and the chef managed to cook just about anything she wanted to eat. I strongly recommend this resort!

Overall a nice new hotel that I would return to. The pool is terrific. The only serious negative for me is that the wifi signal did not reach the room. Don't miss the track to the shore at the bottom corner of the garden (we found it after 4 days!).

Positives:
- Fantastic swimming pool. Big enough to do laps.
- Good wifi in the restaurant (& probably reaches poolside).
- No sandflies at this resort (big problem at some beachside resorts on Koh Mak).
- Good food in the restaurant. Great burgers.
- Very well maintained gardens.
- The bed was very comfortable (not hard as I have read in other reviews)
- Awesome air conditioning.
- Good bathroom, plumbing, hot shower, water pressure.
- Helpful staff.
- Very quiet and peaceful.
- Good new fully automatic motorbikes for rent at reasonable rate.

Negatives:
- Wifi does not reach the panoramic sea view rooms (but perhaps reaches the regular rooms).
- Arftificial wood flooring along poolside is very hot and slippery. Bad design choice.
- Resort is strangely in almost complete blackness after 9.30pm (take a flashlight!).
- Room needed a table & chair under the TV. Most of our stuff had to live on the floor.
- The road to the resort is a dirt track. Very slippery indeed on a motorbike in the wet, and needs improving.
- The staff would do well to clean up the rocky beach below the hotel, which is covered in litter.
- Nice big new TV but no foreign TV channels (Personally I don't care as I only turned the TV on once in a week, but some might be bothered by this).

Room Tip: The four "panoramic sea view" rooms have a nicer view than the garden rooms, and are just...

What a wonderful place! We arrived after a long day's travel from siem reap and were met at the port by the wonderful Noi ie member of sea breeze staff. The island itself is small and intimate and the sea breeze doesn't disappoint. Situated in a private setting overlooking a beautiful bay with private cabins plus the incredible pool. We were there in hot season and the a/c was well welcome. We have to say that we loved the staff and the young owners, so polite and attentive. We also made good use of the restaurant which we found excellent plus being really good value. If you want to get about to other bars and restaurents you can either rent bikes or mopeds - but as we were enjoying a few drinks the local pickup truck taxis were a great experience in themselves. The local Koh Mak divers whom we would also recommend can also be booked at the front desk which we appropriately did upon arrival. What a wonderful experience we had on Koh Mak and in particular the sea breeze. We really look forward to getting back to seeing Noi and the wonderful owners in the near future.
