“Most relaxing place ever!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

Stayed in this hotel from 10 April 14 to 12 April 14.

Love this hotel as its full of greenery with plants everywhere. Its a very quiet and peaceful place. The rooms are huge and the toilets too!! Just that it may get slippery when the floor is wet so make sure you have a few floor mats.

There are 3 swimming pools you can swim into and can also visit the spa for an hour aromatherapy massage which only costs 450Baht.

The breakfast was awesome.

For halal food, you can just walk out of the hotel from the back exit and you can find a street vendor selling halal food. Either that, u can also walk out of the hotel near to the tourists area to get more choices.

As the area is quite a distance from the shopping place, its recommended that you rent an auto motorbike to move around. That only cost 200baht for one full day. Its more convenient that way..

Wifi is available everywhere in the lobby, swimming pool and restaurant so you don't really need to buy any indoor room wifi..

We arrived at the hotel at 10 am, because check in time is 2 pm we have to wait. We came back at 3 pm but our room was not ready yet, we had to wait for about 45 minutes. The room was good, clean, and comfortable but the bed was superhard. Superior room didnt have a bathtub, only shower. The hotel did not provide toothbrush and toothpaste. Dont buy from PK minimart near the hotel, the price at PK minimart is very expensive

Room Tip: Choose top floor that have nice view

La Playa in Ao Nang beach is a great hotel. From our Room 418 it was 10 min walk to centre of Ao Nang passing nice bars and restaurants and shops. It is situated in a quite side street but close enough to town. It is an ideal spot between Ao Nang beach and Noppratrat beach which is quieter. Our room was top floor so we had a great view and benefited from a nice breeze. The room was large and a nice bathroom. Pool area was good with lots of sunbeds always available.
There is a back entrance to the hotel which will get you to Noppratrat beach in 5 mins. Breakfast was served in the restaurant beside the pool and was very good. Good range of food.
Just 2 moans : No wi fi in room but in reception also rooms were locked by keys not cards so every time we went out we had to leave our key in. But this is just minor. Altogether a great hotel.
There is a bar on the way into Ao Nang on right hand side of the road called Moo2 great live music every night, Bob Marley The Eagles etc. Great atmosphere at night.
There is also a lovely restaurant on the left hand side into Ao Nang called Blue Mango good food, reasonably priced.

Room Tip: 418 is top floor corner good views. There are ground floor swim up rooms which are handy for pool a...

We had three nights at Krabi La Playa and found it a great base to explore Ao Nang and the area.

Whilst the rooms aren't five star they are clean, comfortable and have everything you need. We managed to get one on the top floor in the building furthest from reception and it worked out well. It was quiet and gave good views over the islands and sea.

I would say the location is one of the hotels strong points. Although right in the thick of things and one minute walk to bars and restaurants, it is an oasis of calm and peace. The pools are big and lovely and there was always plenty of sunbeds to go around when we were there.

Breakfast is good rather than excellent and has a good selection of hot and cold items. Wifi is an area of improvement as it's chargeable in the room. Fair enough, it's free in public areas and, even on the 4th floor, we could pick up a weak signal on our balcony.

A comfortable stay and recommended.

If I could have awarded this hotel 3 1/2 I would have. 3 is too low and 4 is too high in my opinion. The staff are very friendly and hotel is in a good location in easy walking distance to the 2 beaches in Ao Nang. Restaurants and other amenities are also close by.
The swimming pool area is a good size and we never had any issues securing a sun bed any time of the day even when returning from a days excursion. The pool is quiet and a good place to relax without a raucous crowd. The included breakfast was reasonable with a decent selection but possible the worst bacon I have ever experienced.
Room was functional if unspectacular, but had everything we needed including the all important AC. On two occasions we returned to the room after a day out to find the room had not been cleaned, this was resolved with a quick call to the front desk and cleaner promptly arrived. Bottled water (complimentary) and fresh towels were provided every day.
Overall it's a decent hotel, at a reasonable price, in a fantastic location to explore the local area and enjoy some downtime.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay in Krabi La Playa, and I'm sure this was mostly due to the super friendly and very attentive staff who made us feel so at home. On our first night we had trouble sleeping due to an overly noisy AC unit, we informed the main desk of this in the morning and by that afternoon they had sent someone in and sorted the problem, done. Room cleaning was flawless, mini-bar stocked and crisp sheets every day :) Very efficient people indeed. The food was excellent and the extensive breakfast buffet in particular was fantastic, certainly worth jumping out of bed for! The hotel is well located down a quiet street, 2 minutes walk from the main shopping street and 6 minutes walk to the beach.The hotel put on a great night of entertainment on our last evening there and we felt waited on like a king and queen. The place has a very laid back atmosphere and the staff come across as being a happy and close knit team, always having a laugh. Unlike most larger hotels you feel treated less like a room number and more like a real valued guest. Our only complaint was the spa where my wife paid 400THB for a manicure which was brief and hurried and included cheap varnish which quickly yellowed and flaked.Then I had a rather painful foot massage....but maybe we were unlucky. Anyway, would still definitely consider staying here again.

We have just returned from a few days at La Playa. This is tucked away down a side street and is away from street noise. The rooms are a great size as are the balconies. The pool is good with warm water and there is a large car park should you hire a bike.

The WI FI is only free in reception as stated and they want to charge 80B for 30 minutes in the room and this is poor and a rip off. However we were in room 408 and you can pick up the restaurant WI FI, i guess if you were lower you could better connection.

Breakfast I have to say was average, poor fruit selection, nothing there after 9.45, but the pancakes were good.

However point of warning - the tables are covered with thick cloths and one morning we were both bitten under the table by insects. These bites were 10 times more itchy than mozzies bites and at one point I was considering sawing off my leg, they were that itchy!!

Another moan would be the cost of the drinks and Ice creams round the pool, a small water is nearly 55B with taxes and these cost 7B in the shop. Big sign saying no external drinks, but ignore this and hit 7/11.

For lunch we walked back up towards main road and turned left and immediately there is a place which serves great food at a reasonable price.

I have to say the prices in Ao Nang have increased ALOT, but you still can get a motorbike taxi for two round to the other side of the bay for 50B.

In summary nice place, just dont buy any food or drink there, mind the monsters under the table and spray for mozzies when using WIFI in reception in the evenings!
