“Be aware, in harbor with off loading freightships”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 March 2014

Offloading ships with running generators making so much noise thet we could not have a normal conversation, watch radio or listen TV.
I did ask at reception when it usaly stops, they said 2300, and yes 2315 it stopped, the next day 2330. So form 1900 till 2330 we had that terrible noise that come to the noise when you are in a airplane.
The manager told me to comlaint at the booking website because he agreed with us about the noise from the ships 30 meter from our room.
HOTELS.COM did not answer our complaint. Good to know how their custumer service is.

Everything in trip advisor is not Always as it is. But the real visitors will know. But this time i was going to this resort by the good reviews of Lareena. Well in one word : disappointed !
By arriving the so called manager was not interested at all in his new guests. Just bring you to the room and NO comment at all !
The restaurant was the same. All kinds of staff where hanging around with there mobile phone and the customer,......... have to take care of them selves.
No smile, no welcome and no ambiance at all. And do not believe about opening bar / restaurant. They like to close as soon as possible, because they want to play cards. At the entrance of the resort, welcome !
While sitting and drinking around 9.30 pm they bring us the bill already. 2 nights after when we had dinner, 9 pm they start closing already.
By trying to have some information, I ask the so called manager he can smile or be a little nice to me. His answer was : NO
I am not a bad customer as you can see on my other reviews. But sometimes I have to be very honest.
This place looks so beautiful. Nice location and nice rooms. If they would give some good attention to there guests it could be realy no 1.
Now I like to say, look for other resorts'. There are so many on Koh Larn. Even more beautiful ones.

Room Tip: Ask for seaside view, they are on the best location.

The hotel and restaurant are situated right beside the Koh Larn pier so is ideal for a day trip visit.
Funky, colourful, Mediterranean decor really sets the place off well.
The food is amazing and I have to say some of the best I have eaten in the area. The manager speaks good English and recommended several dishes for us the try.
The oyster omelette was light and fluffy. Soft shelled crab curry was full of flavour. The prawn cakes were freshly made and the filleted fish with lime sauce was wonderful.
The prices are very reasonable and all the portions are large so you can easily share.
It is a great way to spend a day. Take a ferry from Pattaya, go sunbathing on one of the beaches and enjoy a wonderful lunch or evening dinner, then catch the ferry back.

There is a huge area in which to relax outside of your room, with the choice of lay out day beds, cubby hole seating and hammocks...
The beach is not on your door step but there are plenty of taxis and taxi bikes to take you for about 20-30baht!
The food was amazing, in fact some of the best we have had in Thailand yet... Really fresh, cooked to order and full of flavour!
We had our two year old with us and could not rate the staff highly enough for occupying her and playing with her :-)
We will be back soon x

We did not stay at their hotel but we had dinner in their restaurant. The hotel is next to the pier. The extensive menu was primarily Thai food with a nice selection of beverages. We ordered a carafe of red wine and 3 Thai dishes. The wine and food was delicious. We highly recommend the Lareena restaurant. There are not many decent sit-down restuarants near the pier.

We stayed at Lareena for three nights and, although the rooms are basic, we had a fabulous time... There is a huge era in which to relax outside of your room, with the choice of lay out day beds, cubby hole seating and hammocks...

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2013

I came here for a couple of days stay with friends from Pattaya. It is a complete contrast, no bars, a few restaurants but a very active 7-11.

The hotel is easy to find being right next to the ferry wharf. Whilst this does mean you can here the ferry horn, I did not find this overbearing or infact unpleasant. I quite enjoyed watching everyone busily going about their lives whilst I reclined on the very comfortable day bed on my balcony.

The room I had came with direct sea views and made a very pleasant location for evening drinks and chats.

The bed is large and very confortable, loved being able to hear the waves from my room.

No mini-bar, but a full fridge and the 7-11 just outside the hotel door.

The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere, much like the island itself and I quickly slowed into the way of life.

Breakfast is standard American cooked fresh for you and entirely adequate.

Would I come again - in a shot, great place to relax and to get out of the hustle of Pattaya.

Room Tip: The suites have 180 degrees of sea views.
