We stayed for 12 nights at Long Beach Chalet in Dec2011 and prepared ourselves for disappointment, since the place sounded almost too good here in Tripadvisor. But no: we'll join everyone and say we loved our stay.
The place is very well maintained, very clean. Rooms are nice, beds very comfortable, and under the bungalow there's a kind of an out-door living-room with hammock. Used it a lot!
One of us is sensitive sleeper and felt that the soundproofing could have been better. Also the bungalows' floor shakes a bit when you walk in there, which may be a small minus. We stayed in one of the new bungalows, and figured that the bathroom wasn't finished, since the walls and floor were just plain concrete. This didn't bother us. Nice finished touch comes from small things like cotton buds and conditioner.
I have some serious food allergies so it was important for me that the restaurant "Three Mums" could prepare food meeting my special needs. One of the mums, Lynn, took extra special good care of my eatings. Prices are very reasonable, so it was easy decision to eat there a lot. Also very convenient to pay by telling your room number. The food can also be ordered to your bungalow.
Lynn and Tam kept coming to have a chat during breakfast and dinner, asking about our trips and doings, so we felt well taken care of!
Breakfast list is not very long, but everything is served for you by order, which means you always get cold things cold and hot things hot. Very good.
Lovely beach is just a short path-walk away, and there are great beach bars "Klapaklum" and "Calypso" with nice and relaxed staff. You can sit or lie on their chairs etc. and order cold drinks, shakes and food at very good price. Do try Calypsos Chicken Satay - never had better! Klapaklum served excellent Massaman Curry.
If we get back to Ko Lanta, we will absolutely go back to Long Beach Chalet.
