“Had a very good time!!!”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

I was here in January and I had a very good time! I was supposed to stay 3 days, but because of the location en the good service I decided to stay for a whole week. Koh Lanta is a very nice Island, not so party-minded as Koh Samui for example, but that was what I preffered. The Ocean View is directly situated at the beach, so every morning I went for a nice walk. There are massage facilities, the food is good and the service is excellent. The pool is quite small, but perfect for a cool down. I was traveling alone and I had a warm welcome from the owner Elle. She is very nice and took me to some yoga-courses in the neighbourhood. The interior may be a little outdated, but it's clean and everyday I've got clean towels. And after all why would you stay in your room and miss all the fun from the Island?? They also have a laundry service and a pick up from the very. The only thing that bottered me was the light in the room. There was only a big lamp on the ceiling and not a small one near my bed, so I deceided to light a candle. When I go back to Koh Lanta I definately will visit the Ocean View again!

We booked this accommodation via Agoda and arrived to our garden room which was actually located by the road. The room was huge, the bathroom was absolutely fine and the air con was very effective. We asked the staff if we could move to a bungalow with a sea view. This was available the following day. We had to pay an extra £10 per night but it was so worth it. We were initially booked for 4 nights but increased it to 7 days as the location was so fantastic. The female staff member was 'rude and unhelpful' but this was an exception. The rest of the staff were absolutely wonderful. Breakfast was great.
The small pool was great but only used it once as it was only 50 steps to the sea. Really couldn't fault this place.

Room Tip: Sea view was fab

Very nice for what it is. Rooms are clean, maids and staff are helpful and it is close to the main port and beach.

Only disappointment was the breakfast which we only had once and never again, very poor.

Would definitely come back again if on the same budget.

was disappointed with this hotel, we had a garden villa but it faced the reception building ( v2 ) the room itself was big, no hairdryer provided and no tea making facilities, the bathroom was basic, no shower curtain and shower fitting would.nt stay in fitting properly so water went everywhere but not in the bath that you stood in.on the plus side you had clean bed linen every day although some we had had patches on them and clean towels also ( only one each. no hand towels ) rooms were cleaned with sliding doors left open also the back doors so when you came back from the beach you were plagued by mosquito,s.the mirror in our room was never cleaned in the whole week that we stayed there. it was full of squashed mossies left by previous guests. you get towels for the beach when you go to reception in the morning to get your breakfast voucher, the restaurant where you have breakfast and bar on the beach is not owned by the hotel. you get four different options but somedays they run out of things, not good especially as it is owned by an English chap who should know better.young lads does there best to serve you but a little bit slow.only deckchairs on beach and no umberellas anywhere. only a few trees for shade,

We stayed in the ocean view bungalow. Hopefully they didn't have rooms for the next nights so after two nights we changed place.
My first impression was like this place is not worth that money. No beach towel and electric kettle, air condition is old but working. The walls are thick but bungalow is separated into two independent rooms, so u can hear everything through doors which is between them. We were lucky that in front of our bungalow was pool, the other houses have tree view, but hardly no ocean in front of the windows. Only two big bungalows has the ocean view. Pool is small but not so crowded. Free sun beds on the beach.
But the beach is stunning! Amazing views and turquoise water, a lot of dead coral reefs on the beach which can be annoying for some people but is great to snorkel. It's perfect to rent a kayak and snorkel on the headland nearby. People here are nicer and happier than on Phuket, you should check why ;)

We had booked from home and payed some of the amount already. However, they did not expect us at all, but luckily we had the reservation confirmation on our phone. The lady at the reception was extremely rude and shouted/spoke very loudly - guess she was stressed. They went on checking there banking accounts to see if our payment had gone through, while we were waiting with our 6 months old child.
We eventually got our bungalow, which are a bit under average, though clean and ok.
During our stay, I must say, that the attitude of the staff changed a lot to the better and was very friendly. There are a lot of good restaurants around the resort and the beach is wonderful with a beautiful sunset view. Ok value for money and if you stay for a longer period discount is possible.

Stayed in a beach fron bungalow last week for 7 nights.They didnt seem to know we were coming as there was no one at the ferry terminal and by the look of confusion when we arrived.We did however end up in the roon we had booked.The rooms are basic and you dont get any hand towels but the bed was huge, the breakfast was adequate and the location was great but no sun beds for the beach, deck chairs only.There are plenty of resaurants nearby but I dont understand the love in for the koala bar.The best resaurant by far is thr Phet restaurant which you find by walking down the beach and over the little river that goes to the sea.We ate here several times and the food was better than any other around including the Rann restaurant.
Overall the hotel is basic and as long as you go with that in mind you will enjoy your stay.
