Milky bay resort has been one of my favourites so far! The little bungalow you get is adorable and probably had the biggest bed I've ever seen in my life! The front desk is extremely friendly and spoke English well! The only downfall was the bathroom walls aren't fully attached so bugs can get in, but the solution was easy...

I recently stayed at the Milky Bay Resort for a little bit more than 2 weeks. Because I stayed longer than the average guest, I got a free upgrade to a nice and large room located near the swimming pool and restaurant. All the staff members were always very friendly, helpful and smiling. In particular I would like to mention...

My wife and I came here for Christmas. It was a lovely experience. The staff were great, the rooms were clean, and the food was awesome. The water was a murky (thus the name) but it was a beautiful view. A great place to relax and unwind.

Having booked via Hotels.com, I arrived here on 30th Dec with family members. On arrival we were told there had been a problem and that they had double booked us and therefore had no vacancies. After around 30 mins, a woman with a name badge saying 'Prea' arrived and said that they would be upgrading us to another resort, 2...

Nice Resort in the middle of a bamboo forest. The bungalows are very spacious and clean. The pool with view to the bay and close to the beach is with roof. You hardly imagine, that you are so close to town. Supermarket and rent bike is just round the corner. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is...

We stayed here for 4 nights over the full moon. It was amazing. The triple room was huge and really clean. The pillows did smell a bit musty the first night but the room is cleaned daily once you leave a sign on the door so the next day the smell was gone off them. Clean towels provided too, one...

It was a good time for us staying this resort. We have booked a Standard Bungalow so we didn't expect much earlier. Once we checked in, the bungalow was much nicer than our expectation. It was clean and convenience. The area around the bungalow made us feel fresh and comfortable. We love the bar. We love the restaurant.Pizza, Tomkhakai etc....

We had a great stay here. I was staying at a hostel across the road and was super sick so I came here for a night. We stayed in the standard bungalow and it was great! It was small and cozy and well worth the price. They provided shower and beach towels, shampoo, shower gel and a tv and mini...

A brief summary of this hotel: cheap, beautiful, clean, next to a beach, great (massive) breakfasts, great pizza, friendly and caring staff, supplies glow-in-the-dark paint for free on Full Moon party nights, and way too windy to actually play badminton. It has a swimming pool which was fine. It's quite small which is nice and the accommodation is made up...

It's the second time I stayed here and the standard is still very good. Nice affordable rooms, great food, and a lovely small beach in front of the hotel. The staff are great and really attentive and cheerful and always made me laugh. They had wifi throughout the whole hotel which i needed for work. Will definitely be coming back....
