Just great. Other reviewers have already noted its strengths, and they're all correct. It's great at this hotel.; Only reason I'm not giving it a 5/5 is that you have to walk across the boulevard, up the street a bit, and down an alley to get to the beach. This was no problem for us, though. If you can handle local traffic (which you should, if you want to rent a scooter and explore the island, which you should), you'll do fine.

Very clean, very nice, very sanitary. Great quiet and privacy. Good breakfast, made to order.

Front desk clerk will help with everything you need. Very friendly, good English.

Restaurant next door is very good, but for my money, I loved the VR Minimart (weird name, I know) across the street next to the beach. Great food, great prices, great advice from the manager there. It was our favorite restaurant on Koh Lanta.

I loved it. Wish we had booked it for our entire stay, as the next hotel (just 50-60 meters down the boulevard) was dreadful. Recommended for all who can climb stairs, as the hotel has no elevator.

Room Tip: There's no elevator, and you don't wear shoes inside the hotel, so be ready to climb, or ask...

Everyhing was great in this hotel. Comfortable room, spotlessly clean everywhere, great breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff, good location to explore the island, close to the beach. The staff helped with everything we needed, scooter rental, trips, ferry tickets, restaurants nearby etc. Best service ever. We are definitely coming back some day.

We picked Lanta Mermaid over a more expensive resort mainly due to its excellent TripAdvisor comments. We were not disappointed.The cleanliness is the best I have witnessed in any establishment. The staff extremely friendly and the personal service from Chai was excellent. From remembering all the guests by name to asking how your day was Chai was a superb host. He was very helpful when choosing the day trips and helping us sort out car hire and our transfer when we left. The hotel is just over the road from the beach and a 100 baht tuk tuk ride will get you to pretty much any restaurant on the TripAdvisor top list.

Room Tip: We had deluxe room, 3rd floor, road/beach side. Noise wise was fine apart from one night when some d...

We loved this hotel. All of the staff were super friendly and helpful, large rooms, great breakfast and close to the beach. You won't regret booking here!! Currently staying at a resort in Khao Lak that we aren't enjoying any way near as much - should have stayed in Koh Lanta!! Would love to return to Lanta Mermaid in the future to see Chai and his team again.

We love the hospitality of Chai and his team and, for us, a visit to the Mermaid is a must!
We have just returned from our 4th visit and, as usual, the standards were exceptional! Everywhere is spotlessly clean, all rooms are spacious and comfortable and, with the added double glazing on the front facing rooms, noise is not now a problem!
I highly recommend a stay at the Mermaid if visiting Koh Lanta and cannot wait to return!

We stayed at Mermaid Boutique house in February. The house is about a five minute walk to a wonderful beach. Chai, the managing owner, as well as his staff clearly take immense pride in this establishment. While the house may not be noticed as grandiose from the outside, the minute you step in, you realize this is simply a gem of a boutique hotel. The lobby is decorated as beautifully and simply as the rooms themselves. Simple elegance throughout, with everything you need in a room. The house is spotlessly clean! But what really distinguishes this hotel is it's attention to client service. Chai and his staff go out of their way to make your stay perfect and seamless, making arrangements for scooters (a must in Lanta, I promise!), and ferry transfers. All our hotels in Thailand thus far have been lovely...Mermaid Boutique House has been remarkable! You will not be disappointed. A very strong recommendation.

When we arrived there were two things a bit strange for us
- no shoes in the hotel, means leave it outside
- during check-in we retrieved a long list of do's and don'ts and a deposit to make

As we read about this already in other reviews it wasn't a surprise, but the pointing it out was a bit strange. This could be packed a bit more nicely, only remark from my side.

Nevertheless, this couldn't create any bad feelings (other countries, other people, other rules).

So after the stay (and also in comparison with other hotels we stayed)
- perfect clean
- good internet
- good and helpful people
- good breakfast
- very nice rooms

Room we decided to take on the back-side which was a good choice, room was big and silent in the night as the hotel is located near the street.

To a very nice beach or the "center" of the village you can walk in 5 minutes and for longer excursions rent a scooter.
