After looking at all the reviews, we decided to stay at Sayang, and we were not disappointed.
The bungalows are clean, the staff friendly (like, really friendly), the breakfast delicious, the beach spotless, the bar cool and inviting. We were greeting at the hotel with a moist toilette and a glass of juice. The restaurant served really good food, and is right on the beach.
The ambiance is family/couple, so if you're looking for a party place, there are other resorts further down the island (If you're a hardcore partier, I might suggest Ko phi phi instead of koh lanta, as the attitude is a little more chill/relax). Also, the hotel is relatively close to Saladin, where the ferry arrives, which makes getting there easier. If you want to dive, there's a good dive center right on the premises, so no need to get picked up and dropped off.
I felt that the price was a little too steep for what is was, especially seeing as we came here right after Chiang Mai. Maybe we didn't negotiate enough? If you're on a budget, you can probably get the same service at another place a little further down the beach, but if comfort and charm are your priorities, you can book safely here.
