“Nice place and great Clubsandwich”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

Sincere Guesthouse ist a lovley place near the ferry dock.
Rooms are small and simple but very clean. You have a beautiful terrasse with a view to the sea. The terrasse invites to read a book in the hammock, drink a pineappleshake and enjoay the Clubsandwich. The best I ever had ;-) Just try it!!! The staff is very helpful and always friendly.

We stayed a few nights in Sincere and I could have stayed there forever. The place is nice and quiet with a very nice atmosphere. It is very clean, the food is very good and they defenitely have the best coffee latte in Thailand! It's a couple managing, they are so nice, and they speak perfectly english, so you can have a nice chat and they are also very helpful giving tourist information and even booking anything you need ( flight, boat, accomodation ) for you all over Thailand. I completely recommend this guesthouse. It is 100 meters from the pier and has a terrace on the sea side, perfect to chill out, having a drink or lunch. They have wifi and a free computer connected to internet.

What could have been one of the best places we stayed during our entire trip, it was completely ruined by the staff.

We were surprised by the amount of cordiality (or the lack of it) shown to us right from the start. We'd heard of the legendary Thai hospitality and cheerful faces, but Sincere Guest House is an exception nonpareil.

Every other place we stayed, the hosts made us feel at home and even sat with us to help us with our itineraries and suggest a few things that one must do. Not here. Any question asked was met with a stare and a finger pointing towards a sheaf of pamphlets, which were supposed to answer our questions. Any question we asked regarding the property over e-mail (before we landed there) was met with a link to their website, which was in itself in language so ambiguous that it raised more questions than answered.

If that wasn't enough, when we went to our rooms, we were hit by another surprise - no water in the fridge! I was immediately reminded of 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' - Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink.

When asked, they said they don't provide complimentary water and we had to help ourselves to water (overpriced, by the way) from the fridge in the lobby (a finger pointed us to the fridge, too). With no breakfast included, the price they charge per room is definitely on the higher side.

All said and done, we did enjoy sitting and chatting on the deck late into the evenings. They have some very comfortable deck furniture and hammocks which help in unwinding after a long day.

Go to Sincere Guest House only if you have no other option.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the road.

Had great encounter with King, but Chompoo was quite mean and short with us. One of my students used their hotpot to make some water warm early before we dived, as no place was open. He used his own coffee, and cup. Just heated their water. When we got back, she tore into me for him doing that.

Then, the day i left, one of the apparently did the same thing. After we left, she sent me some really rude emails, which kind of soured me on this accomodation. It was a good value for the money, but based on her customer service (lack of) skills, i wouldn't recommend it to my friends or anyone. There are much cheaper, friendlier places to stay in Saladan.

I spent all the night awake thanks to the loud music of the restaurant and the bed bugs (THEY BITE). I spoke with the woman of the reception for the bed bugs and she was so rude telling to me that maybe I bring the bed bugs with my clothes. INCREDIBLE.
i dont recomend to anybody this place it a shame that they have that receptionist .

Being so close to the main harbour for Koh Lanta we thought we might have made a mistake with this choice!

Fortunately for us we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are well appointed for the price and the beds comfortable. There is a little noise from neighbouring properties but not much unless you are a light sleeper.

Staff very helpful once they get to know you a little. Thing they get so use to people just trying their luck as passers by. Loads of advice and the food also very good.

You are asked to pay in full when you arrive which is a little against my way of doing business but on reflection I think this is just to check that people do pay! That said as soon as we had we then ran a tab for trips and food until we left so very amenable overall.

Worth a thought if you don't want a resort hotel and want to dive, this sounds like a good place to base yourself and then dive off and around the island.

If you are after a place off the beaten track but near all the great places to eat, then try this gorgeous wooden guesthouse. It's totally surrounded by water, spotlessly clean, very chilled, good food, brilliant coffee and great hosts. It's a very short tuk tuk ride to the sea and you have all the choice of Saladan.
