- Ongoing construction works with a lot of noise making it impossible to relax at the pool or outside the bungalow. - We were not informed about the constructions and did not get any apologies. - Bathroom is very outdated, had a lot of leaks and smelled really badly. - Breakfast was disappointing, no buffet or any other kind of...

We came out of season, and they were in the middle of construction, this wasn't informed anywhere when we booked. And i'm sure the place would have been much better to visit in "high-season", but everything was more or less closed. Only breakfast was served in the resturant. # Pros - Location - Cleaness - Beach - Swimmingpool - Service... More

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
