The hotel was very close to good eateries, and extremely convenient for shopping. The staff are very friendly, excellent breakfast. The room was very clean, the bed was huge and the aircon was perfect.

We enjoyed our stay here

We did not expect too much, but still...

First the good. Room is ok and A/C is modern and works.
Brekfast was ok, but ok in thai standards (generally low level.. fruits fresh, other food is a poor)

Then the bad:
The area smells bad. Sewers are open.
Toilet didn't flus. Nothing was done when I told the cleaner. fixed it myself.
WLAN works only in the reception area.

Warning! My iPad was stolen by the taxi driver who took us to the airport. I left my iPad in a taxi and immediately noticed it and called the travel desk of this hotel.People on the travel desk were slow to get the driver back. They promised to call me but didn't. (this is usual in Thailand).
When I called back they reluctantly made the driver to meet me and it was obvious he was lying, but too ashamed to admit he stole the iPad. He had earlier acted funny when we pointed out one other passenger forgot her purse. So be careful with this hotel...

Room Tip: Maybe a suite is better and doesn't smell.

Lanta Pura Resort (Krabi All Season) consist of three different buildings. The oldest one is on otherside of the plot, and looks not the same as on the pictures on the web. This older building is not same standard as two other building so make sure you get your room on newer side (atleast if you pay full-price).

Nice and clean pool-area. The beach in front is not the best you can swim there. Poolbar was nice they had happy hours between 4 pm and 6pm. Drinks were good there!

Breakfast was ok but it is the same everyday. When you eat there two weeks in a row you could need some variations every now and then. Coffee was great!

Rooms (the floor of the room) were cleaned everyday, but not too well I would say!

Personnel was not as friendly and nice was they could be (except the small cleaner lady)! But they did their job well and that is the most important thing!

Room Tip: Building next to pool is alot better standard than the other which is on the opposite side (neighbou...

We enjoyed our stay here!
The location is very close to town, the beach is not very nice, but you can rent motorbikes for 250baht a day, so you can explore all the beautiful beaches of koh lanta.
The Tourdesk is good, they organized everything well.
Breakfast buffet with a wide variety of food, we especially liked the "egg-corner", where they cook your egg as you like it, with different additional things like tomato or ham..
it's really silent, perfect for relaxation!!

I stayed here for four days in February. I knew that it was located very near the town which is what we wanted as it was close to the ferries to the other islands and the diving companies. It was much more expensive than the places we had stayed in the North at around 50 GBP per night. We arrived and a room was ready but it was a double and not the twin we had asked for. They corrected that and after about 1/2 an hour we went to our room. Nice rooms, good amount of space and good bathroom with a good shower. We got a room at the back of the hotel on the ground floor so no view but nice and quiet which suited us. Breakfast was OK, quite a lot of choice and included in the price. Sewage smell was sometimes not good but actually not so bad that it ruined our stay. Staff were friendly. Don't waste your time wondering around the town looking for a better deal from one of the tourist shops because we found that the one in the hotel was excellent and very helpful. Definitely hire your scooter from here, no need to surrender your passport like at some others.

Room Tip: Ask for a poolside room on the first floor or higher

For first I would like to say that I have spent a lot of time looking for hotel on Lanta and in the end we chose Lanta Pura Beach Resort. Location of hotel is close to the "city" which is great, but the beach is very poor.Hotel beach is dirty and you can not swim in the sea.
The room that we got had a look at the wall and was poorly maintained. Only if you went to the balcony in the distance you could saw swimming pool and the sea. However, since we were too tired to ask for another room, we remained in that one.
Another thing of which I remain surprised is the breakfast. Choice of dishes for breakfast, was very poor, so we did not know what to eat. The only bread that you get is the toast bread!
I have to commend the tourist agency that operates within the hotel. Employees are very friendly and the prices are comparable with other, only that here you're sure that you get what you booked.
If we come back to Lanta, we will not go to this hotel again.

If you like your hotel to smell of raw sewage, then this is the place to stay.
Arrived late with smiles and friendly staff, however a transfer had to be arranged with a local dive company. The hotel replied to only one of my 4 emails and provided me with a very expensive answer to get from the airport to the hotel. Whilst there are amble ways to get there on budget.
The room was clean, secure and safe however the view was of their bins and trees.
Breakfast was poor and outside, so the smell kinda left a bad taste in your mouth. The staff were very friendly and the travel team there were very good.
I will say the location is very good.
Lots of families and loud children. Beach is not good, compared to the other beautiful beach resorts. There is a chance that your room could be in an even worst part of the resort facing the beach toilets and showers. Please don't take this risk.

Avoid!

Room Tip: Stay on left side.
