We came to dinner here twice. The first night we had pizzas and cocktails, the second we had pasta dishes. The pizza was a lovely thin crust and really tasty. Wasn't mad about the pasta but it was fine. Cocktails were delicious!! Great prices too! The views of the beach were beautiful especially around sunset time. The staff there were... More

I came here for dinner with my friend and we loved the location of the restaurant, looking out onto the beach and surrounded by fairy lights - the food was great too! After issues at our hostel, we had to leave late at night. We decided to return to milky bay and book one of the bungalows. The staff were... More

We had a great time at Milky Bay. My biggest compliment is that I felt like the entire experience was a really good value. It seemed like we should've been paying more for the service we were getting. My wife and I only stayed for a few days and we enjoyed the resort so much that we just decided to... More

My friend and I stayed here one night and were thoroughly grossed out. The place looked so nice.. the bungalows and what not. But when we reached our bungalow.. the door would not close without forcefully slamming it. It was so frustrating. We had so much difficulty opening and closing the door and when we complained to the staff they... More

Stayed 3 nights. We booked this hotel because of rep of being a nice clean hotel and the food. Both were on point. Best Thai food I have ever had. The hotel staff were fantastic. Had great banter with them. I want to give a shout out to Win, Yu and Yam as they were very hospitable.

Stayed at this resort for 4 nights, plenty to do with badminton, volley ball, swimming pool, sauna and obviously the sea right on your doorstep. We were upgraded to a sea front bungalow which was very nice, although the room did feel a little small. But in terms of relaxing on the balcony and watching the sunset would recommend this... More

Really enjoyed staying here. The facilities were good (nice pool, decent rooms). Location close to the port which was useful for tour pick-ups. Staff were helpful and friendly. Had a 'nature's retreat' type feel to it; paths were made from woodchips and plenty of critters around the ponds (fish, lizards, toads).
