The lodge is in a very rural location and set by the Tadlo waterfalls. Our stilt bungalow was basic but clean. The open dining room overlooked the river and we enjoyed a good evening meal and a more than acceptable breakfast there. We received good service from the staff but we were accompanied by a Laos guide who ensured everything... More

The location near waterfalls is magnificent, and at first sight the hotel looks magnificent. And the price is rather high for Lao standards. But the performance of the hotel is rather disappointing. The rooms in the huts are OK, but nothing special. The breakfast is the kind of breakfast I expect for a hotel half the price (no buffet). The... More

It is beyond me to understand why would anyone wont to go to this place... Our tour operator seriously failed here. It took about two hours by car to get there. On the way we stopped in some village inhabited by people that believe in spirits...a waste of time...it looked like any other village you pass along the road. Tadlo... More

Ok, I like my 5 star hotels and this is not my kind of a hotel/lodge. This place is located on a river and the surroundings are just amazing. That's it. The rooms are big the bathroom is very spacious but the place is basic and not clean. The staff have no idea how to run a hotel/lodge. At night... More

There is a net for mosquito though. There was only a thin Blanket. It was like sleeping outside in London, as cold as that.....except... More

We stayed in a double room which was really very basic and clean but too expensive (45 $). The surrounding is beautiful and the waterfall is very nice. The wooden platform on the river and small bridges had broken logs, quite dangerous. The staff was friendly.

My parents stayed here a short while ago. The lodge has a very nice location, close to the waterfalls (although, waterfalls make noise...). The manager is a friendly guy and after I told him that the price was too high considering the rooms, he made a phonecall to his boss to ask for a discount. Only a very small discount... More

I just reviewed this hotel on the other "Tad Lo Lodge" page on tripadvisor, only to realize that there was this page for the hotel, which has many more reviews. Both of the "Tad Lo Lodges" on tripadvisor for this region are the same hotel. In case you do not read what I posted on the other lodge, this is... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights in Jan., 2013. The setting is wonderful. The rooms are very basic but clean. My primary complaint was the staff who spoke virtually only Lao and was more interested in watching TV in a back room or dozing at the desk than in staffing a hotel. Breakfast was included and was good.... More

This bungalow hotel has a spectacular location. A river runs next to it, waterfalls nearby, sometimes more water, sometimes less, they can regulate it. You may swim or bathe there, or just walk along the water. It's a pleasure watching the elephants, you may ride on them if you like. The rooms are nice, but should be renovated now and... More
