The resort was fantastic, breakfast was a feast and the apartments are very large and immaculate. A shuttle bus to the JW Marriott with a good choice of restaurants is easy and free. The location is a bit out of the way nut ideal for families with a hire car.

We were staying at Anantara Villas about a km from the beach. The beach itself was beautiful and unspoiled and clean however, at this time of year, the ocean is treacherous due to high waves, rip tides and very strong current. Impossible to enjoy the water---the best time for swimming is, according to locals, from October to March. One tourist... More

I loved this beach since it's peaceful and clean. It's quite far from downtown, about 45 mins by car, which made it less crowded and great for relaxing, and sunset here was beautiful. Anyway, everyone should be careful, especially with kids, since the beach was quite deep and steep that you may easily falling down. The waves on the day... More

I stayed for a week in a resort in Mai khao beach and will hold the memory of the amazing sunsets I enjoyed with my family. The beach is very clean and long and you almost feel you have it for yourself if you walk a little bit from the hotel. Only be careful with kids, the waves are not... More

I watched the sunrise & the sunset on Mai Khao Beach. It was one of the best beach experiences I've had. Clean waters & massages on the beach - I actually slept off there!

Lovely beach with smooth white sand. But beware of the bugs...! Lots of beetles everywhere at night though I guess it comes with the territory. Really nice for relaxing and swimming. Not much for water sports as is a quiet resort.

Wonderful beach. Nice and empty. Not recommended for small children as the sand is clay-y. Wonderful for people who dont enjoy commercial beaches. Lots of waves. Great beach.
