We stayed here for 7 nights in a standard double room. We decided not to get breakfast included as we had read many negative reviews of it on tripadvisor previously. There were a number of places very close by that do a nice breakfast for a very reasonable amount. The room was well cleaned each day.
The room was very nice. The wi-fi connection in our room was excellent and we were able to get wi-fi by the pool as well. The wi-fi was free which was appreciated.
The pool was lovely. The only issue was that there were not a huge amount of sun loungers so there was a little race to get them each day. Due to the angle of the sun in the afternoon only the six loungers closest to the bar were in the sun. This meant if you wanted to stay and sun bathe by the pool for the full day you had to get up early to get two of these six chairs. We did not go to the bar by the pool during our stay.
We wanted to go to the restaurant on our first night there at 7pm and we found it was closed. There was a sign that says the opening hours are until 10pm, so don’t trust this. The opening hours seemed random to be honest. The receptionist did not have very good English when we asked about a taxi or getting a ferry back to Surat Thani. We ended up going to one of the tour agents in the town. We would advise to get the open backed pick up vans with seats if you are getting a taxi anywhere as they are cheaper and you can negotiate the price easier with them than the taxi cars.
The resort is located to the very south of Lamai town. Lamai town itself isn’t, in our opinion, as nice as Chaweng. There is a lot less to do there. There was nice Italian restaurant at the start of the village which had a fantastic deal of all you can eat pizza on Sundays and Wednesdays, which we would recommend if you fancy some nice pizza. Also the Muay Thai training centre is very close to the resort.
