Well this small hotel is next door to the harbour and ferry terminal on Koh Larn. There is a fair bit of boat traffic from the quayside - and yes they do sound the boat hooter just before they leave, so it can be noisy. But that all seems to stop about 6pm when the last of the ferries finish. it seems to start again about 7am in the morning. Its fun to watch the masses of people rushing toward the boats and if people watching is your thing this is definitely the place to stay. We were fortunate enough to stay in the Jomtien sweet (their spelling) this is a large room with a outside patio area with 2 sun loungers. absolutely perfect. I see some people have stayed in another building which is not close to the quayside so I think we were lucky. The room itself was nice, very Thai style and a little 'Rustic' in places but was perfect for us. Breakfast was nice and set us up for the day. Don't come here thinking it is up to western standards - it's not. But its very nice and relaxing and we had a great time. The staff were very attentive. we rented a motorcycle from them. Just a little tip - we found Thien beach to be the nicest and quietest on the island. We were lucky enough to visit when the Corona virus was in full flow so not to many visitors from a 'certain' country.…
They put pictures and calls hotell by the sea, infact they got different hotels inland aswell that they dont mention, so if you book wrong kind of room you are sent up far into the Island, basicly tricking People, weird more didnt mention this... also breakfast is in a share Hotel you have to walk 5-10min to get there.. patethic
We stayed in the sea view room. You literally are positioned, above the ocean. Room was basic and comfortable. It a great experience listening to the waves, while drifting off to sleep Food was delicious.
If you are planning to stay a few days in Koh Larn this is where you need to book your stay! Easy access from the pier, groceries 50m away and scooters available for rent at the resort 300 baht per day. Best options seafront room. Staff is helpful, nice and perfect English
I've lived in Pattaya for many years but this is only my second time on Koh Larn. I came with my parents and stayed overnight at the Lareena Resort. The staff was very helpful, it's very close to the port (which is convenient if you have luggage), the breakfast was pretty typical for Thai-style "American", and I loved the rooms. Good air-con, lots of natural light, beautiful view of the water and ships coming in from your porch (each room has its own), and there's a little area next to where we stayed that had lapping waves sound all night, which I found really charming. There is only breakfast served, but it's easy enough to go somewhere nearby for food. Close to 7-11 and coffee shops as well.
