This "resort" gets 3 stars because it`s an average between good food, nice location and abysmal services.
We booked a air-con room with Booking.com and when we got there they insisted that we booked a standard fan room. That, I didn`t like and as it turns out some other visitors had the same problem before us. The pictures and description on Booking.com is not really what they have available when you get there.
After 2 nights we upgraded to the air-con.
The bungallows are nice but pricey compared to other resorts in the area.
They do have a pool and that is a big plus because the tide is strong in this area so in the afternoon there`s no swimming in the sea. The coral peaks out of the water.
They have a restaurant with very good food. The downside is that the breakfast is expensive and some of the servers are plain rude.
The bar next door has the best Mojito in all Koh Lanta, and trust me, I`ve tried about two dozen different places.
My advice is : spend a bit more money on the air-con bungallows and you won`t have any problems here.
