The only positive thing about this place is that the supermarket offers better deals than the one in the nearby Turtle Village. Other than that, there is nothing much to do there. There is a very poorly stocked souvenir shop, couple of "boutiques" with seriously overpriced and tasteless bric-a-brac of very low value, an estate agent, and a couple of eateries/bars. I won't recommend eating there: the prices are ridiculously high while the food is below average. You'll be much better off if you opt for a beach shack meal (5-10 min walk from there maximum) - the shacks are right on the beach near Anantara and on the service road that leads to the Anantara's service entrance (a slip-road that starts right behind the Shell petrol station nearby). Food there is of much better quality and very decently priced. Overall, the Mai Khao Plaza is a dull, dusty, overpriced place with no character at all. That's the reason why it is always almost completely empty.

Nearby some 5* resorts, it offers some (little) distraction from resort life.

The restaurant is food, but overpriced, just about 5% cheaper than the nearby hotels.

Shopping-wise, there’s little attractive, unless you want to buy some nicknacks, wine or food.

The drug store, the super market , the restaurant here all are not cheap. Like a Fresh Coconut in normal restaurant cost me TB$120. noting special. Example, a hand made soup I bought in town at TB$50, but here is asking TB$100 ( after discount price ), they like to put up high price and give you so call discount price after that. There is a little play ground in the plaza centre, which is quite nice for my kid to play. Toilets are dirty and broken and not repair.

Handful of shops and an ATM available. Minimart has some essentials for resort guests staying nearby but not a lot of variety available.

Like turtle village, there is nothing to see here. The only shop of interest was the minimart but even that didn't have a good variety of options. Guests are better off taking the shuttle bus into Phuket town!
