Very nice place to stay with the family. We where lucky to get one of the large family bungalows at the fron of the resort so we had both sea and pool view. The staff is helpful and very kind as well as the kitchen being very good.
I would highly recommend DR Lanta to anyone going to Thailand and who want to experience the Thai culture at its best

Room Tip: Ask for bungalow F2 or F3 to secure the best for your family. These are the best bungalows at the re...

Right on the beach, close to the pier/town. Other than that not very nice. Mainly families with young kids, ie loads of shouting and screaming. Also the kind of place where guests creep out in the early morning to drape their towels on the sunbeds... Pool wasn't particularly clean. Breakfast decent, not more. Room was utterly depressing with dated, worn decor and tattered curtains. Worn linen and towels so used they were falling apart.

We made a short stop at Koh Lanta for a few days, and D.R Lanta's cheap bungalows had become our accomodation during that time. The resort is located very nicely by the beach, and our bungalows were hidden in a lush vegetation filled with beautiful flowers.

The accomodation itself, was very simple. A small room filled with beds, with a bathroom on the side. There were other more luxurious bungalows by the pool, but this was one of the cheaper ones. =)
Nice pool, and reception area - where the breakfast was also served. I would say it was average, not bad and not great either. We did never eat dinner here, so I can't say anything about their food. (Most of the time we went to Saladan village by the evenings).

The neighboring Khlong Dao beach is great, peaceful and shallow, which suites even the small children.

this place must be great during high season. nice pools, nice bungalows. we rented poolview houses, which were recently renovated. during our stay, the was a lot of renovation going on. sometimes we felt like having a holiday on a construnction site.
too bad there was no bar or restaurant on the premises. The neighbours were very friendly, so we had diner and breakfast at this nice little restaurant on the beach.
it was a good value, but the owner should have told us upfront about the renovation, or mention it on the website (booking.com)

This was our fourth stay at DR and we had a good stay. The location is everything with the beach right in front of the hotel. The resteraunt and bar are right on the beach with great sunset views. We stayed in a twin bungalow and it is spacious comfortable and always very clean with daily maid service. Rooms have hot shower en-suite plus air-con, fridge & TV.
There is a nice verranda in front surrounded by palms etc - nice for an early evening drink before going out. Resteraunt food is very good but closes early and the staff need to put on a happy face as they don't seem to know about being nice to customers. There are two swimming pools with the new second pool towards the rear of the resort. It is very nice but not well used as there are no sun umbrellas or natural shade so it is not possible to sit there all day. Overall we had a great holiday and good value for money and would return.

Cons: As listed in the title.
Pros: Nice location right on the beach, two pools, one of them looked quite new and was often unoccupied. The bungalows are spacious and fairly clean and has nice verandas however this is a basic resort that are by no means posh.

We stayed during Christmas and New Year in a 2 Person Bungalow. Firstly the service was first rate from start to finish. I initially had some questions regarding our room that I emailed to their central email address. I received an acceptable response within moments and an offer of a personal airport transfer. This made life so much easier and is something I would recommend. This level of prompt service was then maintained throughout our stay.

The hotel itself has 2 nice swimming pools and is ideally positioned right on the beach Dao Klong Beach - not too far from some of the livelier beach bars and restaurants, but far enough not to be disturbed. Our room was to a high standard, of good size and meticulously cleaned every day. Breakfast is good - a combination of fruit, toast, bacon and eggs etc... Although, I consider the evening restaurant food to be at a far higher standard.
I really do rate this hotel for someone on a budget looking for a good, clean to stay that gets all the basics right.
