where to start. so its supposedly "low season" didn't read or hear about this anywhere but first really noticed it when I got to Ko Lanta. at first it was real nice, pool was clean & went swimming in there to cool off. noticed that there was no one around, the beach was real dirty right in front of the resort loads of rubbish, a shame pictures looked so nice. when I inquired about tours reception didn't really have much information or brochures as the tour/holiday office had also been closed along with the restaurant and bar of the resort. I really wanted to do the 4 island tour, which was amazing and went with Lanta Garden Hill Speed Boat Island Tours, great crew! Doing this I needed to stay another night. I got a cheaper rate as I'm sure I was the only one staying there but still wasn't that great a price for no restaurant, bar, proper tour info and no wi-fi in the rooms. Then it got worse the next 24 hours; shower didn't work (thought I was just tried and might be a trick I'd have one in the morning), there was ants everywhere including in a pillow in the bed rubbish bins and in the bathroom. pushing 2 twins beds together when one is higher is just annoying. waking up to the A/C dripping water. By the morning I'd had enough went to find Joe the boss man (who the night before came by to introduce himself & tell me what was actually open around the area, which was good). No luck, by this stage I was done as I'd also got food poisoning from the "Greek Tavern" just down the road and have been in bed so sick for the last 4 days. When I informed the girl at the front desk about the room she wasn't very helpful on locating Joe, just saying I can give you another room, but i wasn't going to pay anymore I just wanted out! I've paid half the price at all the other places in Thailand and got better service/cleanliness/facilities. I went to splash out for something nice, ha that back fired!
