“Pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

It's a pool with a bar and some sun loungers - basically does exactly what you'd expect. food and drink are reasonably priced and reasonably pleasant. If you fancy a couple of days lounging it's fine.

“Average... Go only if you desperately want a pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013 via mobile

Really average food and service, pool is OK but if you want to go somewhere nice to have a dip go to the waterfalls instead

“Day at the pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Well, its a nice swimmingpool, lot´s of young people there.
There is a poolbar and music all the time. Don´t expect something in Lao Style - it´s western style!

“Average but served it's purpose”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The pool is situated close to the town centre, which is handy but was very crowded on the afternoon we visited. Imagine that this is not a unusual occurrence given the hot weather. The clientele were mainly young backpackers drinking alcohol by the pool bar and/or poolside. As we were 2 families with young children, this was not an ideal environment. The state of the pool itself was poor and the grass area surrounding the pool had more mud than grass. Drinks and snacks were moderately priced and they did have 2-for-1 drinks during happy hour.

“Great for a chill out day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Perfect if you miss the beach and just want a chilled out day relaxing by the pool. The food is good but a little expensive, as are the drinks. It gets busy and there are limited sunbeds so arrive early if you can. Wifi is ok and good for Laos. If you have a flyer, available from Dyan Sabai or on the streets of Luang Prabanag, and you arrive before midday then it is only 10k LAK entrance instead of 20k LAK. You can walk from Luang Prabang in about 20 mins which is actually quite a nice walk, or a Tuk Tuk should be around 20-30k LAK.
