Maya Lanta is a small hotel, 19 rooms. The rooms are huge and immaculately clean. Aircon works great. Free DVD's from reception. Choose what you want for breakfast. This hotel is right on the beach, if you sit in the pool you look directly onto the sand and sea. Nice friendly staff who couldn't do enought for you. We would definately recommend this hotel to anybody. Eat at Saladan Market and also at FAT MONKEY, Will is a great host and makes great food. Lots of nice little shops along the way. If you feel like a burger one day, go to the Flip Flop Restaurant. The Thai food on Koh Lanta is great, didn't have one bad meal. Loved it.

Was there for my honeymoon. Initially thought I got the wrong place when our driver from the airport dropped us by the road but when we reached the lobby, our worries went away. I loved how the rooms were right on the beach and the balcony gives us a great view of the sunset every evening.

The room we got was very big and spacious. Even the toilet too. The clean the rooms everyday and gives you nice fresh towels which they fold into cute little animals. The staff are friendly as well. The hotel itself is located quite near to their little town. We rented a bike and covered the whole island in one day.

The hotel restaurant was quite small but we only had dinner there once. We were too lazy to wake up for breakfast and we spent most of the time outside for dinner. The pool was also quite small and if you don't get up early enough, you won't be able to get a lounge chair for the day. Quite cramped in the pool as well when there are families with kids around staying in the hotel.

Overall, I think this is a nice place to stay at.

We stayed in the hotel for a week and in general liked it. The hotel is perfectly located on the beach and the seashore is just a few steps away. You can hear the sea even at night with your window closed. The breakfast was tasty but got boring after a week. The restaurant is overpriced, but there is a wide variety of restaurants on the beach or by the main road. 7/11 is just cross the street. The biggest disadvantage was that our room was situated on a lower floor. after reading TA's recommendation, when I was doing a reservation two months before I asked for the room upstairs but they didnt give it to us even thought I have seen free rooms upstairs (it made me angry a little bit). Rooms on a ground floor means you have to have your courtain close all the time unless you want everyone staring at you while sleeping/walking/taking rest. There is not enought beds by the pool so you have to wake very early to "make a reservation for one". The staff might pay more attention to it. During our stay there there were 5 people who made everyday a reservation for beds and did not appear all day long! As a consequence there were people who wanted to stay by the pool but had no place ;( The hotel is very quiet and offers good relax.

The Maya Lanta is a modern hotel with a nice design and nice rooms. The location on Klong Dao beach is excellent. This could've been a five star hotel if it was better looked after.

Cleaning was not excellent. A lot of dirt left in the corners. They put more effort into making funny towel animals than keeping the room really clean.

The breakfast was below average in this price range. Only a small selection of fruit, bread and yoghurt and you could order egg, bacon and omelette.

The pool area is not as nice as described. The smaller pool/jacuzzi is hidden behind some bushes and not very clean

The staff were layed back, but nice. A bit too layed back until the manager/owner visited the hotel. A bit more attentive would be nice.

Overall, this is an ok hotel for relaxation and probably one of the nicer hotels on Klong Dao. If you're travelling with kids and don't mind swedes, Klong Dao is very good. Otherwise, go to Long Beach or elsewhere in Thailand.

Read so many good reviews of the hotel - was sorely dissapointed to say the least. Booked the one of two suite rooms available expecting to be blown away and instead we were eaten alive by bed bugs on our first night. We got the staff to change sheets in the middle of the night but didnt help much. We checked out immediately after our first sleepless, torturous night at this 3 star shack. We checked into the Sheraton Krabi which for the same price - was complete and utter bliss and saved my holiday.

Hotel only refunded us for the nights we didnt stay - we were still charged for a full nite stay which is terrible.

Avoid this hotel at all costs. Staff were polite, views were ok...nothing to scream about except the nitemare of a night well forgotten.

Stayed here with my girlfriend in november 2009, great little hotel. Rooms are right on the beach.. very modern rooms very clean, nice breakfeast. Hotels on a beach that you can walk up and down where theres a great selection of bars and restaurants. Dont be put off by people saying about the walk into it... once your in off the main road paradise opens open like.
We needed to get to a doctor one morning and a staff member brought us in her own car , translated, stuck around with us and made sure we got seen too and drove us back to the hotel,, really nice staff!
Great hotel for chilling out, you can also rent a moped for really cheap off the hotel or else get a very cheap tuk tuk up the road to some other bars which were really busy.

this hotel (note not a best western anymore) is a great find, at the other end of klong dao beach, the rooms are modern, spacious and right on the beach, the staff are friendly and the food in the restuarant is brilliant.

definatly recommended for a good value stay on the beach.
