The bad:
We stayed in a fan room for 3 nights. The first thing that upset us was that a "fan room" was just like any other room except they stole the aircon remote. We have never seen this in all the other guesthouses we have stayed.

You are not allowed to bring in any outside food or drink, NOT EVEN WATER. So you can't hang out at the back of the restaurant and read while drinking some water, unless you bought it there. Again, I understand since they have a restaurant also, that you don't want to be bringing in outside food and eating in front of other customers. But if this is the place you are staying, and you just want to drink some water when there aren't any customers in the restaurant (there rarely were) it shouldn't be an issue. It's hot outside, and their water was overpriced, along with the rest of the menu. 60 baht for a smoothie that you can get for 30 baht next door.

We asked about transportation to Bangkok and were quoted a price 100 baht over what we eventually got just down the street. You'd think you could get a good deal if you are already staying with them. We tried to negotiate on motorbike rental price but they wouldn't budge and also required us to leave our passports even though they already had copies of them, and had all our belongings locked up in our room.

The rooms have poor ventilation and are extremely hot during the day, this means you have to spend your time outside in the restaurant, where, you guessed it, you can't drink water.

The good:
Sincere is so close to the pier you could almost jump into it from your ferry. This was good as you could just wade through the incessant taxi/tuk-tuk drivers and walk the short distance to the guesthouse. Of course, Saladan doesn't have a beach within walking distance so you are stuck there unless you get a taxi or motorbike. Most of the interesting things you will want to see are further south on the island.

The back deck (part of the restaurant) is a cool place to hang out, but if you read the bad above you'll see why it isn't that great. We did order some food and it was very good. The rooms were fairly clean and the bathroom was pretty decent. We did see some mosquitos.

We would recommend staying elsewhere to see more of the island and enjoy your stay.

My girlfriend and me stayed there for 2 nIghts. It was a randome option after arriving to Saladan pier.

Amazing place managed by King and his girlfriend (actually she is the owner). King helped us in any matter that we asked to without putting a bad face.

The food was amazing. Nothing bad to say about it.

Apart of all this, I had my first scuba diving experience with and enterprise recomended by King. Amazing too!

A high recomended place with lovely people inside ( guests and managing. Big huge for Anthony and his couple).

We stayed here for 7 nights whilst travelling around Thailand for 6 weeks................

Good points:
Great location on the water and right in the centre
Clean
Great owners


Bad points:
A bit smelly due to being over the water
Small rooms
A bit noisy as the rooms are next to the restaurant
No view (the windows all face onto the next hotel/restaurant so our blind was always down)

This guesthouse was a excellent value for money and would definitely recommend if you want a clean place to stay which is close to the centre of town but don't expect it to be faultless!

After the hub bub of Phi Phi and the overpriced accomodation, Sincere Guesthouse was a welcome break. Extremely clean, efficient air con, hot shower, clean beds and very friendly staff. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for budget accommodation with the 'extra touch'. Lovely 'chill out' area to the back of the guesthouse with hammocks and seats overlooking the sea. Beautiful for sundowners. This accomodation is for people not looking for an all inclusive beach resort destination and expecting to be waited on hand and foot. For £16 a night, for our travels in Thailand, it was the best place we stayed. King and Chompoo were extremely friendly, their coffee was good, their moped lasted a whole day without a puncture (unlike previous experiences elsewhere!) and their hospitality was second to none. Would reccomend to anyone. Dissapointed by the poor reviews. Can't imagine what the writers expectations were? We are a couple who travelled independantly through Thailand so to give this our 'top marks' hopefully says something about how good it really is. As an extra, Koh Lanta itself is a nice island to travel with a much more laid back atmosphere than other island Thailand has to offer at a more competative price. Highly recommend Sincere Guesthouse. (oh and they put your name on a 'welcome' blackboard the day you arrive - nice touch, Neil got very excited by this!!!)

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.
