“Cheap friendly Thai style bungalows like the good ol ”
Reviewed January 9, 2014 via mobile

Just like 2o years ago , comfy cool clean with fan , thatch-rooved bungalows right by the beach with a cute dining area and close to other areas also including Relax Bay. Saturday nights beware hard core beach party at The Korner bar, but peaceful the rest of the week. Gorgeous hosts and help . Very chilled . Would come back !!

We were looking forward to stay in Lanta Marina, but were disappointed right after the arrival. First of all, when you arrive, you will see a reception which is room about 3 square meters with two, very unfriendly and suspicious looking staff.

When we arrived we were informed that the hotel was fully booked, even though we had our Agoda booking from more then 5 months ago! After heated discussion about how something like that could happen (by this time about dozen of people with the same problem cumulated) the owner said there is no problem, because they will put us into a very nice hotel just behind Marina.
We have agreed to see the other hotel if the bungalows were nice, and they were. On the way back to the Marina reception, we have asked the other hotel for price of the room that was given to us, and learned that the price is 800 baht per night. We have made our booking through agoda and payed 1800 baht per night in Marina.
After realizing this,we have confronted the Marina manager, wanting to know where the extra 1000 baht per night will go, for which he just stupidly smiled and said nothing.

We have requested to call agoda, they have cancelled our booking with 100% refund, and also they asked us to write them about this experience so they can blacklist Marina from their system.

The owner tried to lie to us that he "forgot" to close the bookings when his hotel got full, but it is more then obvious he is just trying to scam people. We have made our booking almost half a year in advance.

Unfortunately other people just agreed to switch the hotels and so the owner actually managed to scam them and make a LOT of money.

I would NEVER recommend anyone to stay there.

Also the beach is not nice at all, nothing to relax at. We have been all over Koh Lanta and if you want something really nice, still in fine price, check-out riversand resort.

If you have a limited budget and which to stay at at place close to the beach, this is a good choice. The surroundings offers all you need for your stay.

This also means that there is some noise in the area especially on Saturday nights (the DJ's plays really loud music). The friendlyness of the manager (Ae) is incredible. She fixes and arrange everything you may need. We can recommend trips to the mangrove forest and the 4 islands. Opal Travel was an excellent trip operatior, and we ordered the trips via Ae.

Relax bay is within a short walking distance (nicest beach in the area!).

Room Tip: The bungalows are equipped with what you need and the balcony with the hammocks are nice in the even...

I never stayed at the hotel but ate at the restaurant. Bad service, real bad, bad food. Badly maintained. I would not Recommended this place to anybody. There are lots of good restaurants near by. We had to wait very long just to get our menus. Then even longer to order and we actually had to remind them four times that we wanted to order. The food was very late and delivered one at a time with long delays in between. The staff acted strange.

After being let down by another hotel, we walked along the road and accidentally stumbled on this gem at the south end of Long Beach, This is a family run business and all staff are incredibly sincere and helpful. The huts are basic but are huge with large decks complete with hammocks. The grounds are well kept and have a garden like feel to them. On site is a very good restaurant / bar. There is a massage place right next door too which I would definitely suggest trying. The beach directly outside is rocky but within 5 min walk there is a really nice one to watch the sunset from. Overall we found Lanta Marina very good value for money, in a terrific location and with very warm and helpful staff.

Room Tip: We stayed in A1 and A5, as other reviewers mentioned there is a club next door on a Sat night so the...

Very delicious food, chill music, nice staff, good massage, perfect view, not overcrowded. The direct beach is really not the best, but if you walk the 'long' way of max 5min u have dreamful beach. Taste the mix fruit shake and the hot pan chicken.. wow..!

We originally booked for 2 nights but ended up staying longer, we really didn't want to leave.
The huts are basic but beautiful, you have everything you need. We loved relaxing in the hammocks, enjoying the peace and quiet.
As mentioned in other reviews, there is a nightclub next door on a Saturday, but just pop in ear plugs and you'll be fine.
You can rent motorbikes for 200thb a day and explore the island, we found some stunning beaches towards the south of Koh Lanta that were almost deserted.
The beach by the resort isn't great quite rocky and unfortunately some rubbish, but don't let that put you off.
The restaurant serves fantastic Thai food at great prices, so well worth a visit.
But the highlight of the place is Ae on reception, always smiling and happy to help, without any pushy selling.
