Baan Laimai Beach Resort
Ranked #14 of 331 Hotels in Patong
Reviewed 19 August 2011

We had a great stay, it was as advertised, the best location and we had pool access rooms, which made us feel special. The staff were nice, and the restaurant had a great menu, everything we had was cooked to perfection, thanks chef. Our favourite ... the buffet breakfast & egg station, which was worth getting up for, and since Aust has been short on bananas, we were greedy for them. The evening band was great, loved it, those girls sure know how to sing! Just between you & me, you could go to this hotel and not have to go past the end of the street, it's all within walking distance. But be advised they are hard working in Thailand, so if you like sleeping in, wait till the reno is finished because the jackhammers & grinders start at 8am 7days a week, and don't stop till 5.30. But if you want a quiet holiday, you wouldn't go to Patong, we liked seeing it come together, so will definately go back when it's done. (looks like they're improving wheelchair access, while adding 2 new entry's and 5 levels, plus one underneath, and a new family-size-room wing). Free mini-bar provided bottled water & enough drinks for us every day, other than the drinks in pineapples at the swim up bar.

Room Tip: if you like swimming all day, pay for pool access rooms - remember it's everyone's pool, not...

We found Baan Laimai a beautiful resort in a perfect location at Patong Beach. The rooms were clean. Just across the road from the beach and markets within easy walking.
Look out for their specials they have great deals for longer stays.

I recently stayed at the Baan Lamai after trying a hotel previously and was pleased with the choice. It is right on the beach and if you ask for the right room you will get a beautiful view of the sunset and Patong. The rooms are large with everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay including freezing aircon. The only negatives for this hotel was that there was 1 internet terminal and there is no WiFi which it states it does have. The receptionist laughed when I asked for a password as she said I can try if I want but no luck. Not really a problem as you don't go to Thailand for the internet but it would of been good for the option. Also the showers have trouble keeping either hot or cold which was strange. The staff are great and the bar has 2 for 1 cocktails all day everyday. They are currently doing some construction work on part of the hotel so quite noisy from 9am to 3pm

Room Tip: 6th floor close to beach for a good view

Our 5 day stay at the Baan Laimai Beach Resort was a wonderful one and we were both quite happy! It was a clean establishment, with friendly staff and wonderful service. Located right on Patong Beach, we were located on the main beach and minutes of walking to all shopping kiosks, massage parlours, bars and even to Bang La road. The food is delicious here, with an extensive menu which includes delicious, fresh seafood, and the breakfasts offered have a generous spread. The room was cleaned thoroughly and on a daily basis and if we needed anything (extra water, towels, etc), we could simply call the front desk and it would be delivered almost immediately. Although we didn't hang out at our hotel in the evenings, the live band playing was quite good and seemed to have the guests jamming! Staff was always warm and welcoming with smiles and very helpful. The only thing that wasn't a plus was that we didn't have a balcony, or windows to open, but I guess that can be requested upon booking. Also, the shower draining system wasn't the best and would leave a nice-sized puddle of water on the bathroom floor! Other than those 2 items, I would definitely consider staying at Baan Laimai Beach Resort again, based on our first experience! A friendly reminder: If needing a taxi to get to the airport, either have the hotel call you one in advance, OR get one on the street EARLIER! We found that it wasn't so easy to grab a taxi as in our previous city, Bangkok, where they are everywhere!

Pros
Clean
Nice huge pool
Beachfront in Patong
The hotel bar an restaurant are a nightlife spot in themselves

Cons
No wireless in rooms.
Staff is pretty bad in terms of helpfulness and politeness

Summary
Cheap, nice place to stay in Patong area. Definitely pay the $10 USD upgrade for the poolside room.

I'd recommend this property to friends.

Had pool access room ,, no shade over balcony...was up the front, no privacy everyone could see us, even the public eating in the restaurant, The room was OK but the floor boards made a loud horrible creaking noise everytime we walked around the room.Reception area was sparse and uninviting, I think a lot of this is due to the renovations that are happening because even the rooms were filled with cheap furnishings and the hardest bed I have ever slept on. At $152 au a night I wouldn't go back there unless there were some major changes. The staff were great, polite and very helpful. Thats the thai's though they are lovely people.It's a shame cause the location is perfect close to everything.

my family stayed for 5d4n.the first day we arrived, the staff already had problems with us. they were pretty rude to us while talking to us, maybe because we're malays or sth. our family had a horrible trip because of this hotel, many mosquitoes in rooms, hotel still under renovation, and the worst part was bad staff, thankfully we could sort it out with the manager, accident hapened n they DEMANDED money from us, not even asking politely. altho good location, i suggest do not choose this hotel, thr are many others along the area cuz we've never experienced such a lousy trip

Room Tip: choose anything better than superior room.
