“perfect location”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

located in the middle of Lamai beach, but quiet - the perfect location, you have all the entertainement of the busy main street, but since the compound is large, the only sound you hear at night is the sea

due to a minor electrical problem I got upgraded on my second night

biggest disadvantages:
* from a certain point in time, around 9am, the breakfast buffet is more or less empty
* the bad habit of other guests to block places at the pool with their towels in the morning for the whole day (they show up only a smaller part of that time), leaving no place for you if you come later - this could be easily avoided by the hotel by giving out towels at the pool and collecting "ownerless" towels, as other hotels in the same price range do it

Room Tip: don't take the cheapest rooms, they are in the building directly at the main street don't t...

Stayed here two nights in January. The hotel itself is nice...right on the beach...looks elegant...but the customer service is horrible and rude. I asked the front desk for help finding a vegan restaurant and they wanted to charge me 25 baht. Ridiculous.

I was recommended a cheap place to stay in Lamai by a friend and I went there on three occassions in the last two years. Weekender Bungalows is on the opposite side of the road from the resort. There are large rooms in a two storey white building alongside the photography shop, where you pick up the key from the Thai lady who owns a large white husky dog. It costs just under 600 baht per night for a large room. You also have a veranda which is handy to sit on for breakfast which you can buy from the 7 eleven around the corner. There were also much cheaper 250 baht wooden bungalows in a nice garden. Once I stayed in one of these. They are basic with only a bed, small fan and a toilet with cold water shower. However they are fine if you do not care about luxury and just want a typical beach bungalow popular with backpackers.

We stayed as a couple during new year for a week we payed £60 a night we have been in thailand for 13 weeks and this is the worst hotel yet rude staff small rooms, breakfast was terrible. Tiles missing in the pool only 22 sun loungers around the pool so need to get up at 6am to get a sunbed. The only good thing about the hotel is location. Please please please there is better than this for half the money look about. Bill resort £16 a night grand maninta £30 a night are by far better than this place take the nice looking pool away and it's a budget accommodation

We kind of just showed up to see if they had rooms after our friends said they were at the Weekender Resort (they were really at the Weekender Villas). They had rooms, and we checked in. It was beautiful and reasonably priced (about $75/night US during late November). We had one of the "Thai houses" with a pool view. Good A/C, private bath, wifi is an extra charge :(, very attentive staff, amazing infinity pool, whirlpool pool, and lap pool, all on the beach. Thai massage tent - on the beach (it was fantastic). Breakfast included and was a Thai buffet with omelet bar, on the beach. Bar on the beach. In room tea kettle. Our house had some gecko and frog visitors :). We could walk one direction onto the beach or the other direction onto the main strip in Lamai to find amazing food and taxis to anywhere.

Stayed in the Weekender for 11 nights in a deluxe room that overlooks the beach. Good sized room and well cleaned each day. Hotel staff all very friendly. The hotel is only a short walk from the local bars etc but far enough not to hear any noise. I think the rooms are a bit overpriced to be honest and charging for wi-fi is not good but I like this hotel and would stay again for sure.

Room Tip: Stay as near to the beach as you can afford.

Stayed in the Weekender for 11 nights....online it looks like a really nice place to stay, however I found the reality to be somewhat different...my room was a garden view and while this was ok the noise in the apartment block was very loud..... cleaners in the morning dragging furniture around on the tiles, guests packing up, maintenance sanding the balcony woodwork etc etc and all before 1000hrs...!!!..
The shower was just not cutting the mustard either and trying to get the right temp was a joke...easier just to have a cold one, there was also a strong smell of sewage when the shower was in use. you had to pay for WiFi ...!!
Staff were ok, Pool area was very nice, access to beach was simple but these benefits did not not outweigh the apartment block. the rooms need a makeover.....full stop.
