“Lovely resort in Patpong by the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Patong is the absolute pits unless you're into cheap bars, sex shows, and Patpong like sporting events. La Flora is a delightful well run, happy place. Rooms spotless, staff delightful, excellent breakfast, nice pools, direct beach access without having to go outside. Unfortunately they don't own the beach, so you must rent a sun bed from another service provider. I will never return to Patong, but if I did it would be to the La Flora.

Room Tip: Ask for a room near the beach, I was not disturbed by noise at any time, but the beach side is even...

This hotel is top notch for service, staff, comfort and location. It's located conveniently in the heart of the action but removed enough that if you wanted to escape you can! Greeted with jasmine leis and cocktails when we arrived, a plate of longan fruit in our rooms and because it was Chinese New Year while we were there - they left us lucky red pockets with 8 THB (8 is a lucky number in the chinese culture) and a discount for food and drinks in the red pockets. These were all lovely and thoughtful touches that put this hotel over the edge of many other places I've stayed at. Plus you can walk out to the beach via private access, pool or you're minutes away from where it's happening! The rooftop bar is an incredible spot to watch the sunset and have a cocktail. I would definitely stay here again!!

Room Tip: request pool side room

We have absolutely loved this hotel. First of all we would like to thank the amazing Staff of this hotel for their caring demeanor, enthusiasm and attitude. They have made our holiday more special. As you can read from all other posts, the location of this hotel is unbeatable. Hotel is situated right on the beach. We had a pool view room on first floor and it was spectacular. Breakfast and the staff serving it were superb! We do not have any negative comments about this hotel. You will be delighted to stay there.

Loved the hotel and location...close to everything. service was outstanding and the concierge was super nice and helpful. the actual room was very nice and loved the direct access to the pool. the hotel is right on the beach and you have direct access to it as well. the negatives: 1) there were ants in my room and lots of mosquitoes. 2) breakfast was not good at all...plus had to wait around 20 minutes for my eggs to get cooked, and when they finally arrived, they were yukky. other than those 2 things, i would definitely recommend the hotel

Patong is Benidorm in Asia. It is brash, loud, overcrowded and hot. You will be constantly annoyed by street hawkers looking to sell you rubbish. After a while it is exhausting..

Having said that, this hotel is an oasis. It is quite and calm. The staff are friendly and helpful. They literally could not do enough for us. The rooms are newly decorated and spotless. Step outside and you are on the beach. It is overpriced for the area though.

The great thing about Patong is the ability to leave it behind. We went diving and on a boat sight seeing trip. At night it is hectic fun. The gay scene is very busy and friendly, with people from all over the world. I don't think that this is a place for families.

Room Tip: We stayed in a pool view room. These are the ones to go for in my opinion

Location is great for being in the middle of the action and craziness of patong, but once you step inside the hotel it's peaceful. No people partying. The staff are helpful and the rooms are large, with all the mod cons. Mini bar is complimentary and restocked every day. Handy for the beach, sunset on the roof top bar is a must. Will stay there again.

Room Tip: Pool view rooms offer more privacy than pool access rooms

We stayed four nights at La Flora.
There were many very good aspects to the resort. The staff were terrific, especially those at the Concierge desk and the restaurant. The location to the beach was great, although, I personally would prefer to swim in a less polluted part of the island. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. The main disadvantage for me was that our room had facing rooms across quite a narrow pool. This meant that, if we wanted any privacy, we needed to keep the curtains closed all the time as the opposite room was quite close. As a result, the room was too dark. Personally, I like a light filled room with a view and, prior to booking, I did not check carefully enough about the aspect. Most of the rooms looked as though this would be a problem except the small number facing the beach. We also had difficulties with the (to me) complex technology of the television/ DVD player -however a staff member was quick to help. I thought the breakfast was fine although there was not as much variety as in the larger resorts.
