“Incredible staff, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I can't say enough about the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff at L Resort. You get an iPad upon check in to order room service, massages, and other things, but rarely use it because the staff is so nice, it is easier to talk to them in person. L Resort is located across the street from Ao Nang Beach and one of the long boat places. Long boats get you to Railay Beach for cheap. We booked multiple excursions through the front desk and they did their best to find us the best deals.

Before I started this review, I read what others had written about the L Resort and it was definitely a mixed bag. If you expect REAL luxury then the L Resort will be a huge disappointment. Don't even consider it. However, if you just need a conveniently located place to sleep (not for light sleepers though) that has a really good restaurant in-house, free wifi and a reasonably sized pool, and you don't mind the bungalows then this is for you. If you like us are looking for a hotel with a nice feel, clean and well-appointed rooms, friendly staff and calm surroundings (at night) you will leave the L Resort with mixed feelings. The bungalows are old and while an attempt has been made to make the rooms look "modern", the doors to the closet don't close, and the door to the bungalow itself can only be closed if you lock it from the inside (or outside) with a key. This meant that if one person stayed in the room and the other went out you had to either lock in the remaining person or disturb the remaining person when you returned. The bathroom is really very RUN DOWN and in desperate need of a face lift. The furniture in the room is worn and if you're a light sleeper like me, and don't want to stay out partying until 3am you'll suffer from the noise/music coming from the nearby bars until the early morning hours. I slept with ear plugs and I could still hear the boum-boum-boum! Some guests have said that the rooms in the main building are quiet, but I have a hard time believing that with the main road on one side and the bars on the other they could be what a light sleeper needs. On the other hand, for daytime activities the L Resort is very conveniently located right in the middle of the main Ao Nang shopping strip and opposite the long tails departing to Railay. As for the breakfast, I didn't think it was anything special and it's true that there were no nets to cover the food. However, the in-house restaurant "Wanna's Place" served excellent food (we ate there twice). Their Thai food is delicious and so was the beef. Staff at the resort were generally friendly with a couple of exceptions but the owners/managers didn't make any effort to speak to the guests. There is a Mac available in the lobby for guests to use (free of charge on a first come first served basis) and a good wifi connection in the lobby/bar/restaurant. However the signal was very weak to non-existent in the bungalows. The bathrooms near the lobby were very dirty most of the time (especially in the evenings). Overall, we felt that at around € 120.- per room and night the L Resort was definitely overpriced by Thai standards. You can find nicer hotels elsewhere for much less.

Grear location close to beach, boats, shopping and restaurants. Stayed in a bungalow which was ok, they have done them up ok although it needs a bit touching up at places. Biggest problem w bungalows are that you can hear the base from the nightclub further down the street. Music still thumping at 4.30am I almost lost my will to live. If you want to be out drinking late or are like my husband who can sleep through this bungalows are a good option, vslue for money. However if you are sensitive like me then don't choose a bungalow, go for the rooms in the hotel. We were only staying there for two nights and were very kindly upgraded to the suite which was amazing!! Couldn't hear the noise although facing the busy beach. Def worth paying a bit more for this kind of room, spacious and lovely!!!

L resort staff were great, so friendly and helpful. Big thanks to the manager who made our stay great! Will stay here if going back to Ao Nang.

We spend 6 nights at the L Resort. That was on Christmas 2012. This was my first trip to Krabi, and if I should return, I will definitely stay at the L resort again. The staff is extremely friendly, the rooms are beautiful and the breakfast buffet has a wide range of selection for every taste. It is a clean and modern resort.

The restaurant Wannas Place, is a must. The steak at Wannas Place is the best I had in Asia. Also the cordon bleu is really the best I had in a long time. You may wanna make a reservation if you like to enjoy the food, as it can get crowded.

The beach and long-tail boats are just across the street. The L Resort is very centrally located and walking distance to other beaches.

If you are looking for value of money, The L Resort is the place to stay.

Great location in the center of ao nang beach. Close to shoping and swiming. We stayed in the larger and these rooms were exelent.
The pool bar was terrible, and needs to be upgraded. They went out of towels and could not make coctails. But over all a very plesant stay

Room Tip: Upgrade to the larger rooms. Very nice rooms

We spent 5 days in this hotel, just got back.
The hotel staff is very accommodating and friendly. The rooms are large,clean and stylish.
The hotel restaurant has great food and is very popular, so it`s wise to make reservation if you are more than 2 persons.
The location is very good. It`s right across the street from the beach,and located amongst shops,bars and restaurants. Still we heard little to no noise in our room at nighttime.

The only thing not so great with this hotel is that the pool area is not that good. It`s a bit small,not so many sun beds, and they run out of towels midday. But still a very good choice!

Room Tip: The Larger rooms in main building are very big and nice.
