I stayed three nights at Lamoon Lamai in a fan bungalow. Admittedly it's good value for money for travelers on a budget, but I sometimes wondered if I should have spent that bit more - hence the 'average' review, which doesn't mean bad, it just means average!
When I checked in the staff were unfriendly and made no attempt to go out of their way, hence as it's not necessary to walk through the office to and from your room I didn't see any staff for the remainder of my stay - until I checked out.
The room was very big with a very big bed but absolutely roasting hot. Of course I'd expect this in the hot season but was disappointed to find the fan mounted on the wall, which wasn't nearly as effective at keeping the room cool as a ceiling fan. I also noted an air con unit in the room but with no remote control, so they clearly stick to delivering what you pay for - i.e. fan only, which is fair enough. Unfortunately the air con unit had a bright blinking light on it that lit up the room at night!
Lamoon Lamai is in a good location, just a minute's walk from the beach through a hotel resort opposite. It's a nice beach but I recommend making the walk up the far end (turn left on the beach), it's much quieter and with nice places to eat - it feels a lot less touristy.
If this is your budget I'm sure you could do a lot worse.
