I stayed here twice in the past few months for 9 days total. It is right on the beach, has a nice lawn, convenient restaurant (some dishes hit or miss), the bungalows are simple (w hot water bathroom, fan, hammock porch and a big bed w mosquito net), cosy, clean and cheap. There is a volleyball court out front.

No beach lounge beds but none should be expected for the excellent cost and value.

There are a few markets, bars and restaurants close within 5 min walk.

Book ahead in peak season and on big weekends.

Koh Lanta is one of the few islands that is not completely overrun by crowds of packaged tourists (yet).

I would definitely come back here. The vibe is great.

For 500 Baht (in high-season!) we got a basic bungalow with fan, mosquito net and warm shower. That's insanely good value, given that the resort is located right next to the beach!
The beach (Long Beach) never feels crowded.
The food in the restaurant is very good and they also have small huts with a seaview where you can sit and enjoy your dinner. The staff was always very helpful and the atmosphere here is very relaxed.
I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed in their bungalows for two weeks, and can't say enough positive things about this place. Food is good and cheap, the service is fantastic and the bungalows are nice, cheap and on the beach. Have stayed here two times before, but this time, they had upgraded to warm water showers in most bungalows, and free WiFi.

Will definitely be coming back

Nice scenery if you get the bungalow on the beach. Food ok, tempura prawns lovely but yellow curry not much flavour and mediocre compared to others we've had. Order at the bar, staff nice enough. Chilled place to go to, no fuss.

Perfect location, right by the beach. Helpful employees. Fast and efficient service. Ate there at least once a day. Breakfast in the stalls facing the water was the perfect way to start the morning.
