There were no bungalows left when we arrived but we were offered a choice of rooms in 'the sands' and settled on a third (top floor) Junior Suite in one of the main blocks. The hotel is unusual in that the two blocks at the back of the hotel each have an individual pool separate from the main pool and 'pool entry' ground floor rooms where you step from your balcony right into the water.
These two pools are great pools, big and ideal for swimmers. children have to be supervised. They are quite different from the free form main pool which is at the centre of the hotel grounds, not next to the beach. Our room was perfect, a living area and separate bedroom. It was good quality,well furnished and air conditioned at quite a reasonable price. In a sense we were pleased that we stayed in the main block, the villas were on the main pathway to the beach and a bit dark from the trees and plants for our liking.A warning however. If, however the sound of children playing puts you off then beware , the main block is populated mainly by Swedish families who sit round the pool while the children play together in the pool and the noise can be quite loud.
The hotel restaurant lacks atmosphere and like others, the quality of meals was unremarkable. Most people seem to eat at the beach restaurants anyway.
The reception staff are very helpful, the room was clean, linen and towels changed each day. No problem with this hotel.
It is very centrally situated on Ko Lanta, there is plenty of beach life and the sea is safe for swimming. I would certainly go back to this hotel, but we would find out when the Swedish school holidays are before we go!
