“Great stay”
Reviewed April 12, 2011

Located about a 20-30 min walk along the beach from the main centre or a 50 bht pp taxi ride but the area is a lot nicer and there are a few restaurants near the main entrance to the resort. The rooms are of a good size with a roof terrace which was a good place to get out of the mid-day sun, one thing which would improve it would be a kettle for that early morning coffee. The restaurant served fantastic food. The beach is small but sandy with plenty of sun loungers. If you walk around the corner past the Ao Kao resort you have one of the best beaches on the island but I thought Ao Kao looked a bit worn. The island itself is very quite which is exactly what we wanted.

Sometimes you take a risk on a hotel, this one did not turn out great for us. We were spoilt on our previous stop on our trip- Shantaa on Koh Kood. When we arrived at Palm Beach, it was cute enough- well manicured and presented grounds, pool, funky 2 storey villas. But on inspection of the room, noticed there was only a fitted sheet and 2 pillows on the bed (and really tacky/naff bedlinen at that). We assumed there were covers in a cupboard somewhere and went out to explore and have dinner. When we retuened for an early night, we could not find any other sheet/blanket/quilt though? Very odd? We had to go to the bar and ask a staff member, they gave us a quilt in a plastic bag (no fresh cover on it) and seemed amused we wanted metal coils- as you lied down, the springs poked into your spine. We were really annoyed and after trying to fall asleep- decided to contact our next hotel on Koh Chang and check in 2 nights early. When we told the Manager in the morning- he was peturbed, but he remained calm and helpful- he could not understand how we could be unhappy?? Did other people sleep OK here? For the price (3500 baht) we expect a lot more. The bed is the most important part of a hotel room- bad nights sleep= unhappy guests! We were not fussed about what we saw of Koh Mak either- skip it and go to Koh Kood instead- it is amazing!
