“Nice family friendly resort”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

Our family stayed there for 10 nights in July. Overall it was excellent experience. They have been very accommodating and flexible. The hotel has offered us a discount, when we mentioned that we are considering extending our stay and we did not have to ask.
There are several advantages for the hotel, which are unbeatable:
- very very reasonable price;
- it is very centrally located;
- the rooms are individual cabanas, hence a lot of privacy;
- standard cabana comfortably sleeps 3 - there is one queen bed and one single bed;
- the hotel was very accommodating to our kid, who basically stayed free of charge (including free breakfast);
- the breakfast is simply outstanding and included in the room rate (we did not had better breakfast for the whole 4wk stay in SE Asia;
- you get an ipad for use during your stay;
- the hotel has willingly changed our cabana to another one;
- excellent restaurant (a bit pricey, but if you want some European food on one of the nights, you hardly have another option).
There are only two noteworthy downsides:
- next to hotel there is a noisy bar/cabaret, and you can hear it at least in some of the cabanas, which can interfere with your sleep;
- in the first cabana that we got, the bathroom door was super short (~170cm) and being tall I have bumped and injured myself into the doorpost several times; the other cabana had normal size (195-200cm) door.

The L Resort has potential, with such a terrific location, to be great. It is however a bit of a let down once through the lobby. The bungalow rooms are clean and comfortable but being right next door to the local night clubs you don't get much protection from the noise. We were moved to the L Larger room which certainly helped but when we turned on the aircon, it smelt of mould, which was concerning. The pool area is in desperate need of refurbishment, with loose flooring and exposed nails. The restaurant was outstanding with a choice of local and thai meals. The staff were helpful and friendly.

The L is in the middle of Ao Nang, just across the road from the beach. So it's easy walking distance to the beaches, restaurants and shops. If you want to go on a boat trip, the boats leave from opposite the hotel, too, so it couldn't be in a more convenient place. We upgraded to a Large Room which was very spacious and comfortable with a little bar area. I was a bit disappointed that we didn't have a balcony. The hotel is close to quite a noisy part of town where there are plenty of bars, you can hear music at night but we found that once our windows were shut and the aircon was on it didn't disturb us. The breakfast buffet is quite nice, with fresh fruit, Thai food and your choice of eggs. We found the staff friendly and helpful and enjoyed our stay there.

We turned up on our honeymoon in krabi and booked into a hotel whilst at the airport, after spending a night there we decided to walk around and see what else we could find......and thank goodness we did!!!! We found "the l" and wished we had stayed here first!!! We couldn't believe it when we were shown to our room and we had our own bungalow!!! The price of the room was unbelievable for the quality we received!! The staff were all amazing, couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect!!! It was so amazing we are planning out return visit next year!!!

Book this thru Agoda and decided to book this hotel due to the pictures advertise are modern. In reality this hotel is not, it is a bungalow style where inside are quite old. This hotel have hygiene problem and I found that my room is not clean enough. Once I walked into the room, I felt that there were some sands on the floor and on the bed. The music from the pubs nearby played so loud until 2am+. Once a night I heard music still played at 3am. Not a quiet place to stay. The staff is friend. The location is good, just at the main street and a few walk away could reach to restaurants and shops.

Room Tip: Don't get fool by the pictures advertised.

We booked the hotel based on online photos that shows a ultra modern room. However, in reality, the room is in renovated basic bungalow. It fails to create the modern feel. Breakfast is served in the hotel's restaurant and have good spread. Location is quite central. We checked out the tour organised by the hotel and realised it's alot expansive compare to those offered by agents outside. The transfer from airport by the hotel's car is very good value - only 600 baht and they use a very new luxury van that can fit more than 8 person.

I had pre-planned with the resort on my husband's surprise birthday getaway! My husband only knew where he was headed to when we got on board the plane. Upon arrival at Krabi International Airport, I ordered for an airport pick-up & arranged with Michel (management from the resort) to customize the signboard stating "Welcome to Your Surprise Birthday Holiday!" which was very helpful of them. On top of that, they made it even more memorable by upgrading us to a larger room (with a gorgeous view of the sea) from what I had initially booked for. It did not just stop there. On my husband's actual birthday, they brought up to our room a birthday cake & it surprised him (which we shared with them since it was just the 2 of us). Overall, customer service & guest experience was just great!

As for the room, we got the Larger Room which was just sublime (again, especially with the view right smack in front of the sea). It's a very modern hotel where they provide every room an ipad which acts as a device for any room service - food orders, clothes press, room cleaning, info about the hotel/krabi's attractions, etc. It is of course available for guests to use for surfing.

The room had relatively high speed wifi connection except when there were thunderstorms & connection was down (as well as the cable tv).
The location of this hotel is very central - walking distance to everything. The guest relations were extremely helpful in directing us around the island & provided honest opinions about shops/restaurants. Breakfast was not bad, but I guess the spread could be better - they served both Thai & Western breakfasts.

Thankfully we had a great & comfortable room since we stayed in it most of the time - we arrived during the monsoon season & it just poured every day we were there for 4 days (thankfully, except on my husband's birthday!).

It was a very comfortable stay and we will definitely pick this hotel again the next time we head to Krabi. Thanks, L Resort!
