My review is only for the low season 2015 (until October). There's major construction going on, it is disturbing and in my opinion this place should be closed during that time. They do mention it on the booking sites so be warned. They are building two new big buildings, one next to the swimming pool and the other next to... More

I didn't stay here, but went to the restaurant on site along the beach and was so surprised, that if I go back I'd be tempted to stay here. Looked lovely, it had good grounds, a nice pool, and if saw lots of families. It was right on the beach. And the cottages were a good size and looked well... More

Our stay at the Golden Bay Cottage was just perfect. Nice Cottage with good bathroom, complimentary water every day and nice beds. Small but very nice pool. Cottage is located right at the Beach which is very nice. The Restaurant is good as well. All staff is very nice and helpful. We rented scooters for a day which were in... More

We booked into the cottages based on the good ratings given on the hotel booking sites expecting something special. Instead we got a place that is run down and a cottage that was just adequate but drab. Mosquitos came in under the warped door, the bedside lamp didn't work and had some loose wires at the back. The air conditioner... More

This hotel, after our unlucky stay at Southern Lanta Hotel, was real revelation, we were more than delighted with it. The small resort with beautiful bungalows that is right on beach. Sala Dan beach is remarkable, not lot of people on it, it is wide beach and 2km long, clean and not crowded. The biggest advantage of the resort is... More

The hotel was okay. We stayed for 1 week at a standard room. The rooms was nice and clean. We got a room close to the pump house which at first was a bit disturbing but we got used to it fairly quick. The pool area was nice and clean, the restaurant okay. It was really close to the beach... More

We were staying in a standard room for one week. The standard room was OK, and nicely cleaned every day. Pool area was nice and had around 20 sun beds. The hotel also offered some sunbeds close to the beach. The breakfast was OK and also the food at the restaurant.

We booked 3 nights in a superior room for 2900 THB/night. One would imagine above avarage quality, when one hears "superior" - well let's say exaggeration has played its role in this case. The room we got was by all standards shabby - the sink in the bedroom and not in the bathroom (no place for that in the bathroom)... More

We booked 4 nights based on the very good reviews on the Internet. The room was not cheap - 2200 THB/night, so we thought this was ok for the holiday season on an island. When we arrived, they gave us a Superior room, so we thought: Great, better room for the same price. But this "Superior" room was by far... More
