This is our second stay at the Lanta Casuarina, the first being about 8 years ago.
Originally we were booked into a standard room, later I changed to a garden Villa at a reasonable rate. Since our first visit the hotel has built a beach side snack bar.
On arrival the check in was friendly and quick, even the night security guard was pleasant, Hotel reception and grounds were clean and the gardens well looked after and our Villa was OK.
Free WI Fi just ask at reception for code
The beds in the room are on the hard side but this is fine for us and the Air Con is loud.
We read that reserving sunbeds by putting towels on them late at night was happening. I found little example of this but by 7-30 am most beds had been taken by early risers. Also comments about the state of the sunbeds have been made this I agree with as many are in a poor/ dangerous condition and past the life expectancy.
The breakfast is not very inspiring, the usual eggs, toast, yoghurt etc. a basic breakfast for a 3
The hotel had many people with young families staying and at breakfast things get dropped on the floor, we were surprised to see staff walking around this rubbish sooner then pick it up, this was most noticeable in the snack bar.
The beach we found was clean and quiet with a few bars, we ate at the 3 mums a few times half way between the Casuarina and the Layana.
If you want a lively evening go out of the hotel to the main road turn right and there are many bars restaurants to choose from, the Irish embassy bar on the main road had good food and ideal for a change of pace.
For us the things that let the hotel down were the staff you come into contact with most, the restaurant staff and the room cleaners they just seem disinterested.
Having talked to a few business owners this is the same over the Island.
The wife as asked me to highlight the poor room cleaning, yes the bed linen is changed every other day but the cleaning of the bathroom and bedroom when pointed out to me was poor and she was less than impressed.
