“Always a Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed 7 October 2013

I've stayed at Laos Mar several times over the years, and have always found it to be pleasant and enjoyable as long as you don't let the "little" frustrations get to you.

The hotel sits 300 steps (I counted) from the water across Sandy Beach. The rooms on the top floors that face the water, and not all rooms do, have a nice view. It's always a relaxing experience to sit on the deck and watch the sun rise with the shrimp boats just right off shore.

The rooms are comfortable with a nice firm bed. The patios are good size and make an enjoyable place to sip your favorite beverage. The a/c was new and functioned flawlessly. The bathroom has a shower/tub combination with good water pressure and lots of hot water. The rooms have TV, phone and wifi which was spotty at best. I periodically checked the speed of the wifi and it ran from .08 mbs to almost 4 mbs downstream. Upstream ithe highest reading I got was 08mbs. Over our four day visit, I could never send a text message or email with a photo attached, although I could receive them. There was no problem with plain text messages or email. There is a coffee maker in the room, but they do not supply packet of coffee, instead, they brew coffee in the lobby starting at 7AM.

There is a bar with seating inside and out. During the week, but not on the weekend, they had a guitarist playing in the outside seating area. To me the sound was turned up too high and you could hear the music throughout the hotel.

The pool and heated spa were clean and appeared well maintained.

The staff was friendly, and helpful in quickly fixing those little glitches.

Overall, I have always enjoyed staying here, the locations is good, the rooms are comfortable and the price is reasonable.

Room Tip: One section of the hotel is three stories and the other two, I always opt for a third floor room fac...

This is a nice option if you want something clean, affordable and near the sea. Although is not right by the sea its actually pretty close to it. Friendly Staff, overall property in good condition the only thing I can suggest is taking care of the spa better, the pool was clean.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and were very pleased. Check in was quick and the staff was very pollite. I requested a room in the third floor to get better ocean view which was well worth the 3 flights of stairs (we did not see an elevator). The pool was clean and water was at a good tempature...it is nice if you have small children due to it having a shallow area for them to play in. Our room had a nice balcony with amazing views. The walk to the beach was pretty close. The inside of the room was average but for the price you can't expect much. We had 3 clean towels every day . No wash cloths but I had taken my own so that was not a problem. The room had a small hairdryer, iron and coffee maker (no coffee or filter) but we bough some in a local grocery store. Our room had carpet and tile only in bath rooms. Beds were comfy. Overall for the price this place if amazing! Other hotels in this area are twice as mouch or more. We had previously stayed in Playa Bonita which is same quality for a slightly higher price only difference would be that one is right on the beach. So if you want to save yourself 30 dollars a night and don't mind a 3 minute walk this is a great place to stay.

When our family, visited the hotel--we we're given an upgrade/suite. The architecture/interior design, was beautiful! It was a little cramped, but the balcony made up for it--being quite, spacious. The pool's floor, is exquisitely made of tiny mosaic (smooth) tiles! There is a good restaurant--attached to Laos Mar. Very convenient for breakfast! The only draw back, is one must drive, a short distance, (a few minutes) to the beach. Overall we had a great time!

Room Tip: An upgrade/suite is worthwhile--make sure to get ocean-view.
