We were told they don't take bookings in advance so we just showed up the day we needed the room - ended up staying for 10 days because it's such a relaxing place, with a lush garden and beautiful view from the room. The place is about a 15-minute walk into "town" but closer to the caves as they're on... More

We spent four nights here and really enjoyed it. It's a nice, quiet place away from the centre. They have some really nice dogs that follow you when you go out. Next door there is a great place to eat.

Really nice place, ran by friendly and helpful owners. Nice setting just by the river, the bungalows are the best rooms available here. Good food and drink, relatively low in price. Would recommend to anyone who wants to be a bit further away from the main area of Vang Vieng... it's much more chilled and relaxed!

Planned to stay 3 nights and stayed longer with a tough decision to move on to our next stop. The honor system was used for meals and drinks and worked really well. Restaurant serves excellent Laos dishes. Great staff who were attentive and helped us book all types of tours, excursions and tickets for similar or cheaper than in town.... More

We arrived into town at 9pm on New Year's Eve. It was a horror of yellow tourist signs and drunk people everywhere.  It was dark and we had no map but eventually we found the river and crossed it with a hope for some peace.  Maylin was really lively. The hosts even opened the kitchen so we could eat.  ... More

Although the party scene in Vang Vieng has recently quietened down, Maylyn Guest House offers a peaceful haven from the town itself. My wife was feeling a bit sick so we stayed in the new rooms (80 000kip), concrete and with en suite bathrooms, not the bungalows, which are simpler and made of wood. Situated across the river and set... More

Only spent 3 days, but it was magical. the view is simply amazing and the staff is very friendly. Although i could be a bit bias since this is my aunt's resort. Hi Joe and Aunty!! My uncle Hatsadee is basically the host he speaks very little english but loves to help and answer questions. And honestly you can't beat... More
