Wonderful Beach Holiday
Our holiday was the best beach holiday we have had for a long time. All the restaurants are on the beach and the lights all along the beach looked beautiful. The trips were a good price and very enjoyable. So good we have booked again.

8/10 Very good

The Good and the Bad
This is an interesting place to review. On the good side, the beach is the best. Soft white sand, deep beach that’s great for walking and running, flat slow entrance into clear turquoise water. It is so swimmable and even great for little kids because it stays shallow for 50 m or more when you walk out. Also on the good side is that there are so many beach restaurants and bars (and a few minimarts) along the beach that you never have to leave the resort or beach. The evenings are just stunning as you walk along trying to select a restaurant. This was, hands down, our favourite beach in Thailand. On the not so good side. When we checked in, our room was very small and in need of repairs (min suite). We made the decision to upgrade to the family suite and it was well worth it. Get one of the three in front of the beach pool (there’s a second pool near the back of the resort). There’s no shade on the beach, but there is shade just in front of it before the pool. You need to book a lounger easy in the morning or you’ll be in the sun. The breakfast was seriously lacking (white bread only, a few Asian options, but only eggs if you want western). They do have fresh fruit, juices, tea, coffee, croissants. If we came back to Thailand we’ll return to Klong Dao beach but probably try a different resort on the beach.

Only OK
The hotel and facilities need updating. The breakfast selection was very limited and the cleanliness of the restaurant area was poor. Wifi does not work in some of the rooms. There are however plenty of other restaurants and bars on the beautiful beach, the location on the beach is very good.

4/10 Fair

Avoid this hotel
This hotel was quite underwhelming to say the least, and I wouldn't recommend anyone staying here. Sure it is beautiful, but with so many choices to stay on Ko Lanta, make the choice not to stay here. First of all, the hotel says it offers a shuttle from the Pier. No one was there to greet us, and it took a half hour to get someone over there once we called. The driver was very nice, but the woman with whom we spoke on the phone with and upon check-in was angry and unhelpful. Secondly, the shower in our room didn't work. All we got was an inconsistent drip. They sent someone to fix it, but it didn't improv the shower at all. The room didn't have towels (we had to ask for them), and the safe didn't work. On a good note, breakfast was lovely, although I had to ask to have it set up by 8 am the second day. The hotel is on the beach, which is beautiful, but don't expect to get anything promised on the website as far as amenities go.

8/10 Very good

Friendly staff and good value
This was our third time st Dr Lanta. It is good value for the money. Nice location, friendly staff and two poolareas. The breakfast is not the best but ok and you kan see the ocean from the restaurant. The shower is not good. There is no pressure.

2/10 Poor

Generally awful. Hotel staff rude and unfriendly. Rooms basic yet clean but not facilities for food or drink on site and the onsite shop had practically nothing in stock. Yes this place is cheap but it's still not worth the money. The only saving grace is the location. It's right on a beautiful stretch of beach.
