This hotel is a gem. The location is perfect, right on the beach, near loads of restaurants and bars, incredible views and sunsets sat at the hotel bar every night. We ate in 5 other places on the Island throughout the trip but the food in the hotel was the best we had. They have a mix of Tex-Mex and... More

Lovely small resort at the South of Long Beach with a great bar and restaurant. There are a variety of different types of room from budget options to the large beachfront lodge. We booked one of the mid-price Tropical Daze rooms and weren't disappointed, the room was comfortable and great value, with a little outside seating area to watch the... More

we enjoyed our time here, not complaints whatsoever. I would've given it 5 stars, but a pool would be needed to get the extra star! We stayed in the front room for 6 nights at the end of our honeymoon, and it was great. Hired a scooter, went diving with their in house dive company 'Dive and Relax'. Close to... More

We stayed for five nights at this lovely resort, with a great bar, restaurant and dive shop. Specifically the beach bar staff miss Nong, Mr Bank and Dodo (aka mr 50/50) made our stay truly memorable! They made us feel like home every day after we finished diving. Ask for the magic tricks, you will not be disappointed!

We stayed in a Seabreeze bungalow for 4 nights. Room size is great for 2 people, would get cramped with anymore! We had 4 awful nights sleep here for many reasons!! 1. Pillows are enormous! Very uncomfortable and hard to sleep on! 2. AC was either too hot or too cold there never seemed to be a "just right" temperature... More

What a beautiful, chilled place to stay. The grounds and gardens are just stunning and kept pristine by the gardeners who are constantly sweeping. Ideally located, right on the beach. The bungalows are spacious, comfortable and exceptionally clean. Nit, the co-owner went out of her way to be friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was very good, breakfast,... More

Stayed in the premier bungalow at castaway which was the beachcomber. The room was very nice but the bathroom was very basic and at one point found ants on my toothbrush. The resort is fine if you are looking for budget accomo on the beach. The room was reasonably priced but was probably a little too basic for my needs... More

This was our 1st time to Koh Lanta so I was so unsure where to stay, thankfully the trip advisor reviews helped. We initially booked for 4 nights in the Beachcomber Bungalow but extended for another 4 nights moving to a sea breeze room as the bungalow had been booked. At 1st I didn't want to book too long incase... More
