Clean rooms, friendly staff. Food was nice, had a great 8 nights here. Close to beach and bars or a 20 minute walk further down for more restaurants and bars. Chilled out place to stay! Would definitely stay again.
It's interesting to see a couple of recent reviews have said "not sure what all the fuss is about - why does this place get such good reviews". Of course, opinions are always subjective, so here's mine. The reason I, and many others, come back to this resort year after year and regard it as "home away from home" is quite simply because of the people we have met there. Yes, the hotel is well situated, clean, safe, and has great facilities; but more than that, the thing that makes it special, is if you take the time to talk to your fellow guests and the staff running the place. If you do join us at the bar one evening, you won't find a "clique", you'll just find a group of people from all over the world happy to have a beer and a chat and you'll get to meet some great people. If that's not what you're into, the hotel is still wonderful and worth staying in, but you won't be experiencing the "full" Lanta Pearl experience and what makes it worth coming back to time after time. I've made some great friends there, and every time I come back, it feels like "home". That's why the 5 stars apply...…
We stayed 8 nights Room A19 family chalet with one double and one single bed Lovely pool area - newly built two or three years ago Simple breakfasts - no buffet breakfast but simple choices at reasonable prices Very good and varied Thai food served all day 50 metres from Long Beach Lots of eating places in easy walking distance We would recommend this place and will most likely be back again
The Lanta Pearl is a lovely place to stay. The location is fantastic - just minutes from stunning Long beach. This is definitely a family friendly hotel. There is a beautiful swimming pool but it was often understandably full of children and parents. The staff are what stood out the most, the majority of them were so happy and friendly, it really made a big difference to our stay. The management are obviously doing a great job to have such happy staff. The air conditioning didn’t work in our room and it was unbearably hot. We reported it to reception and they called an engineer out to fix it the next day - excellent service. The food at the pool bar and the breakfasts were of a very high standard. All in all, a very good place to stay and good value for money.
I cannot rate Lanta Pearl Beach highly enough. Very nice clean bungalow with air con, tv, en suite shower and bathroom, fridge and all the protection against mozzies you can fit. onsite restaurant and bar has reasonably priced, high quality food with a well thought out list of options to fit everyone's tastes. Pool is great and a lot of fun to spend each day chilling out by with a well stocked bar. the absolute highlight of this place though is the staff. Each and everyone of the hardworking staff we came across were friendly, helpful and incredibly professional at all times, always willing to do anything they could to help make your stay better. This is without exception, from the moment you get to reception till you check out.
