We stayed here for three nights with another couple as part of our trip around the islands of Thailand. We actually hadn't booked this hotel, had planned to stay at some bungalows along the same beach but when we arrived we weren't happy & decided to look for an alternative. We thought the Pavillion Resort looked nice and they greeted... More

We were there 1 hour before looking for another hotel down the beach. The staff is unfriendly, they should all go to charm school, especially the front desk. The service in the restaurant is terribly slow and also unfriendly, the bar not much better. The pool was ok but short on umbrellas. The beach at low tide is full of... More

It amazes me how many compliments I get from the guests who stay here and say that our staff are so friendly and smiling 24 hours a day. I know things are a little slow here but this is island life and people come here for a relaxing peaceful break. I can understand that some other parts of the world... More

Booked two nights of a two week vacation here, was planning to stay here if everything was nice. First of all they advertise Temperapedic mattresses which are expensive gel memory foam mattresses, what you get instead is a mattress similar to a sofa sleeper where you can feel every spring in the thin uncomfortable mattress. Cockroaches and lizards and ants... More

It seems you were very dissapointed with your stay here and I can only imagine what kind of place you were looking for, perhaps a 5 star in Bangkok would have been more appropriate for you. I can appologise about the mattress as the person who added the information did not realise what a Temperapedic mattress was. The mattresses we... More

Me and my family have been to plenty of places in Thailand. Some with higher standards and some with lower. We always end up comparing them with this place and none has yet ever beaten lanta pavillion. The staff is lovely, great food and a beautiful beach with a laid back feeling. However, it is not possible to swim during... More

We are always happy to hear people have had a good time in our resort. Usually if 20 people have a good experience maybe 1 will write a review but if 1 person has a bad experience they will write a review for sure so it is very nice to see happy experiences. Almost every guest who checks out of... More

Average room with a less than average bed. Restaurant is on the beach and the hotel offers sunbeds, chairs, mats and pillows w/o charge. Its true that swimming is challenging at low tide but at high tide its OK and snorkeling is fine as well.

While I enjoyed my stay at Lanta Pavilion, I think you need to set your expectations before going to this hotel...I think the word "resort" is a bit of a stretch. We went in mid January 2014, so while the price of our room wasn't dirt cheap ($70USD), it was one of the more affordable options we found, and I... More

Arriving all seems very nice from first appearances, but that all changes...the rooms are horrible and old, the beach at low tide is all rocks...but the quality overall is very low and the food and cleanliness below average.

I am very sorry and sad to read this. We are a 3 star resort not a 5 star resort so please understand that our rooms cannot have marble floors and chandeliers hanging from the ceiling.

Don't go. Simple. The video is incredibly deceiving. The springs on the bed dig into you from the first time you lie on the bed. Cockroaches are in the units. The noise from the disco went until 4am - an incredible thumping you can't ignore even with earplugs & A//C. Below normal standards. I would never stay there. We left... More

I can only appologise for your unfortunate experience. It seems that you may have got 1 of the few remaining rooms yet to be updated and refurbished. In the past 12 months we have totally stripped out and updated 33 of the 38 bungalows here on the resort. I understand with your bad back that having a not so new... More

We stayed here in December 2013 for 3 nights. It's about a 15 minute drive from the main Saladan Pier, but we were quite happy to be out of the main area. Check in was relatively easy, although they do charge 3% if you pay by debit card, so we went to an ATM instead and withdrew the cash. To... More
