Pros. has nice pool and surround and the eating area is nice too. The rooms appeared to be pretty clean and the beds comfotable. Food in restaurant pretty good, coffee good when made by owner. Helpful for info on bookings etc.
Its just not worth the money at 900B without any breakfast it just doesn't add up. Could hear everything in the room next door. The area in front/around papillon is just nothing to write home about. Service could be slow until they realized you actually wanted service. Having said that, it seems all most of Lanta is like this. Compared to other thai locations the island has overpriced itself and appears lazy.., cant figure out why its a bit dirty with garbage everywhere on side of roads , beaches and a general badly maintained feeling, also a lack of creativity and smiles for thailand (ouch just my feelings). similar complaints from many other people met at other hotels/Inns
Next door at Long Beach Chalet 1100bt including breakfast with many choices and good coffee you could get a room with excellent facilities, new , clean, working TV cable, pool, great food, great service, even room service and good wifi in all rooms, but then again it was full even in off season, we can see why. However I think Long Beach Chalet is the exception on this island and they deserve all the bookings they get.
Pappilon is fine its just not worth the price they ask.
