Krabi La Playa Resort
Ranked #17 of 109 Hotels in Ao Nang
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Krabi La Playa is a great hotel with very good location between the two beaches in Ao Nang. Set up is very spacious. Check in was quick, rooms are spacious, clean, have all amenities, bed is really king size! big and comfortable. All rooms face the two large pools 140 cm deep and the sea/beach. Wr had deluxe on 5th floor and the view is stunning. I read somewhere that the 4th and 5th floor rooms are the deluxe ones and for sure have one big bed not two separate beds (if that's important for you). Breakfast buffet is good, enough choice for european american and thai tastes. The guys serving the pool bar and the restaurant were somewhat absent minded/careless: forgot to bring us cutlery, forgot the second juice we ordered:) while we were only one of the three tables they were serving:) i wonder how they manage if they have a full house, their manager might not be very happy. But they always serve you with a smile and repeat your order and we didn't really care, not fussy. Wi fi is free at lobby/pool/bar/restaurant area and is strong enough also for skyping. Hotel staff can book tours for you and there is spa which i am going to try one of these days. I definitely recommend this hotel. Enjoy!

Hotel is in a good position set back from main road.Large rooms (we had 318 ) overlooking the nice swimming pools.
Bed a little hard but very large.Breakfast was pretty standard but good,you cook your own bacon so their can be no complaint's if it isn't done right.Staff are attentive on the whole and courteous.Just down the road from the beach.
My favourite restaurants nearby are the Luna Beach bar and Potjawan.
A good choice of hotel and value for money as food and drink in the hotel is reasonably priced.
We would definitely return.

Good location! Service is good, like the room, bed is BIG, pool is great. Breakfast - reasonable. Had dinner - Thai food - good.
The Thai massage by the pool - excellent! ($350 baht - an hour)
5 mins walk to the main road - shopping! Exit by main enterance or exit by the pool - back enterance.
10/15 mins walk to beach OR the boat station (long tail boat - 200 baht 2 ways) to Railay beach...cool place.

Better than Phuket!

Room Tip: If you want to own dipping space get the ground level room.

Since I don't know any other hotel at Krabi I can only compare it to Phi Phi and Phuket.
More value for money than Cabana Hotel in Phi Phi and Seaview Patong in Phuket. Clean like all the others. In cul de sac which is nice and walking distance from beach. Breakfast on par with others. Staff so so as Roger 10 said.
PLEASE refund us the 1000 baht you deducted from our credit card. They seems to ignore emails claiming it back.
DO NOT order ice from room service. It was so expensive, I returned it. Maybe that was the 1000baht.(for his effort).

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor with pool access looks great from above.

Room was spacious and clean.. Bed was comfortable.. Staff were ok however I was a little put off when the front desk called my room at exactly on the checkout time - literally at 12pm on the dot we received a call from the front desk reminding us that we were overdue to checkout.. Massage by the pool was amazing - more expensive than the street but totally worth it.

We stayed here for our honeymoon in a pool access room with spa jets. It was a great room with a massive nice shower and big bed. Very unique to walk straight into the pool. Only thing was you had to call reception to switch the jets on. They give you a beach bag, mat and towels. Staff were so so, mostly not friendly and with poor English (except the large lady at reception).

Location is excellent, in a quiet street yet right near the shops. I recommend the echo roof top dining restaurant on the right down towards the beach. Good food and music at reasonable price. Also the street vendors, cheap although portions can be small.

Cons:
Free wifi in reception and the restaurant but they charge in the rooms. In this day and age all hotels should have free wifi. The previous and next hotels we stayed in in Thailand were half the price with free wifi throughout. Even restaurants give free wifi, come on guys sort it out.

Restaurant and drinks prices don't include tax or service (extra 17%). Happy hour at the pool bar takes cash only, so had to Wade through the water with cash

They ripped us off on the rafting excursion we booked through them, charging 500 baht extra per person compared to other places. Our fault for not checking but just a warning to others not to use them.

It is an expensive hotel

The location of this hotel is perfect in my opinion, its quiet but still in the centre of everything. A short walk between 2 beaches and the main resort area of Ao Nang. We found the staff friendly and helpful and we paid a good price for the room on one of these secret hotel deals (we had worked out it was this hotel before we booked it!). The room was spacious, clean and well kept - good bathroom and shower, safe, haridryer etc plus beach bag complete with beach mat and towels for you to use.
The pool area is really nice and plenty of sunbeds, pool bar with abit of music but not loud.
The breakfast was as good as your going to get in Thailand - egg station, bacon etc plus crepe station and lots of different breads etc -people complain about getting bored in some reviews but seriously its breakfast - there is only so much they can offer!
No complaints at all and would definitely go back.
