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.
