“Ok place to stay”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

The place on the beach itself it's nice and beautiful. The room was okay, but it was although the best they had, most expensive. The room was practically on the beach. Pool was ok, but there wasn't any shadow. Girls and women in the reception vere rude most of the time. They claimed that we haven't paid for the previous night, and for the motorbikes, althought we had already paid! This happened several times. When they found out that we really had payed, they didn't even say apologize or anything. They vere rude and unfriendly most of the time. Sometimes our room was without cleaning for several days. It was pretty disgusting, because you had to leave all used toilet paper in the bin in the toilet (that's normal in many places in Thailand and Koh Lanta). There were several cockrouches in the room and about 10 cm spiders. But I guess it's normal, when you're in Thailand and near the jungle. But it was the first time for me in Thailand to see cockrouches in the room. Reception should have open at 7 AM, and the breakfast, too. One day we had to rush to the day trip very early, and there wasn't anybody from the staff in the reception and either in the restaurant at 7:15. The restaurant could have been cleaner and more comfortable, but it was okay, and the food was very good and not expensive. We have to say something good too: The service in the restaurant and in the beach bar was mostly very friendly. Especially the young boys were extremely friendly and smiled very much. We would give five stars from the service for them, but because of the reception girls/women we have to give two stars. One star would be right for the reception. Staff in the beach bar tried to charge us full price although cocktails are 20% cheaper after happy hour (to people who stay nights in this resort, there was advertisement in the room). The shower wasn't good because of the very low water pressure. And usually water was very cold or very hot, couldn't get convenient temperature.

I stayed here one night and while it wasn't terrible, I found far better at Southern Lanta Resort. For starters, the room is not that nice and the bathroom was rather dirty. The toilet got clogged, no soap was provided, and the like. The front-desk reception was a little mean at first but loosened up.

The upstairs restaurant wasn't bad but I didn't get breakfast with my room. Overall, this isn't a terrible place but you can and should find better.

Room Tip: Ask for a beach view room on the second floor and try to bargain hard, esp. in low season.

I booked a fan room and had to see 3 different rooms because they were unclean and nothing like the pictures on the website. Restaurant does good food and the bar offers a great atmosphere. the girl in reception made me feel like I was a nuisance when I went to ask questions or buy an internet card

We stayed here for 6 nights in January and it was lovely. For the first 3 nights we paid a little more and had a room which opened onto the beach, which was beautiful, quiet and clean. The family who own this hotel are very friendly and helpful. The room was cleaned every day and any requests made were promptly acted upon. I would recommend this hotel as a cheap and clean place to stay

Room Tip: The hotel will provide a pick up service from the ferry

The second time we stay at this hotel (the third time for my girlfriend). we can not but be warmly recommend this family run hotel. the staff is very nice and the hotel is in principle immediately, on the beach. Furthermore, they have a small pool that fits perfectly on the days you do not want to lie on the beach. the area's restaurant (with slightly confused with charming waiters), a bar and a mini market. the latter is somewhat more expensive than 7-11, which is located on the main road. to enter into Saladan takes about 30 minutes and keep you going is not going as there are cheap motorcycle taxis (30-60 baht / person).

We will come back here guaranteed!

Room Tip: ask for beach front room

NIce quiet place right on Klong beach. The guesthouse has a swimming pool and a restaurant plus a tourist centre that can help booking tours, motoped and whatever you need. # min walk there is a 7 Elevens tore and an ATM. The room is spacious, clean and nice. I racommand the room with the terrace. Friendly staff.

We stayed her 5 nights in june which is the low season,and that affects a few things..First of all the prices are about half of the highseason rates,,,the opening times in the reseption is also a questionmark but we where the only guests so that is to be expected.
The restaurant was of course closed but food is never a problem in klongdao.
It may be that I see ko lanta /klongdao somewhat different than most people do, becouse my wife is from ko lanta and I have been there more than 1 year all together....
I did of course reed the other reviews and I am very surpriced that quite a few had problems in this place...
finally we paid 500 bath/ night and for that rate its very good value for money...
