We booked the Mai Khao as a timeshare getaway not really knowing what to expect. The resort was totally beautiful and the room was very nice. The room was very comfortable and it was equiped with a washer and dryer which we really liked, especially with 3 kids. The Mai Khao is not on the beach which was disappointing but they have round the clock golf cart rides to the main resort which is by the beach. Also the walk is very pretty and not that far. We spent all of our time at the main resort using their facilities (I guess you aren't suppose to but no one ever questioned this). The main disappointment was the inability to go into the ocean because of the strong currents and the red flags were always up (it was monsoon season). The second disappointment was the cost of everything, the food was very expensive and not that great, to get anywhere you had to take a taxi and they took full advantage of the location and charged accordingly. I tried to call one of the independent tour guides mentioned on trip advisor to take us on a tour of the city but he was not allowed to come to this resort because of an agreement with the taxi company. On the positive side the staff was very friendly and accommodating, we rented bicycles and rode to the town and that was great fun. Overall the experience was good but expensive.
