We stayed during off season (July) and found Lanta Sands and Beach Resort to be nice, comfortable and value for your money resort to stay.
Our villa was quite spacious, and nicely appointed with both shower and outdoor bathtub. We especially love our memory foam mattress - it's heavenly to sleep in. The daybeds in the front porch and inside the room were a nice addition to the already modern and comfortable room.
The TV was a bit small and dated. No cable while we were there, but they told us that the storm from the previous week knocked down the Island's main attenna. BUT there was a DVD Player in the room and you can borrow DVDs from the front office.
Room was cleaned everyday. Clean, comfortable and soft bedding, linens and towels were also replaced each day.
Located on the northern part of Ban Phra Ae (Long Beach)- a nice and quiet white sandy beach with crystal clear blue water where you can sit and enjoy beautiful sunsets.
Overall we really enjoyed our stay here at the Lanta Sands and Resort and highly recommend it.
