We went for dinner here one night and it totally exceeded our expectations. The staff were so nice and the service was excellent. They wanted to get to know us and we chatted a bit through out the dinner. Deep fried icecream was really good and we even got a surprise gift at the end of the dinner. Also dinner was on the beach.

We stayed at Andaman Lanta Resort for a week in January. We had a ground floor room in the hotel section. The room had a lovely view over the garden towards the beach. Don't get a room facing or near the road because it is very noisy.
The bed and bedding were comfortable. The bathroom was ok with a leaking shower and the drain regularly blocking. The staff were friendly but spoke little English. We don't eat meat and the food choice was limited, we generally ate elsewhere. The restaurant had a lovely beach aspect and was a "missed opportunity" because with better food and more atmosphere it could have been great. The pool was really lovely and the grounds well maintained. The beach was lovely with many good little restaurants nearby (try Time for Lime). We had a great week and plan to stay there again next year, it was good value. Also, the massages were really great!

My wife and I recently returned to the Andaman Lanta Resort for an 8 night stay. We had visited previously almost 10 years ago and since we last stayed the resort has been extended and had an extensive makeover. We booked a deluxe poolview villa, which was the same accomodation that we had previously, but the accomodation was greatly improved. The villa no. 4 was located along the side boundary of the resort and has a view over the pool and gardens and is only 30 or 40 metres from the beach, which you can see from the verandah at the front of the unit. The villa was beautifully clean and well maintained and laid out with the only slight downside being the antiquated low pressure shower over the bath (the same as original, but no great problem). The staff were very friendly and helpfull, although many had little or no english. Again no great problem as I don't speak Thai either. The room rate included a daily buffet breakfast and whilst the selection was somewhat limited, if you couldn't find something to eat you would be hard to please. The omelettes were cooked while you wait and were always very tasty. If you didn't like the breakfast selection in the resort there are plenty of other restaurants along the beach within easy walking distance. The resort also now has a very nice little coffee shop opposite the reception area at the entrance where they do very nice coffee, hot chocolate etc and also serve cold drinks. The internet access is also available at modest cost at terminals located in the coffee shop. The resort has a tour desk where they can arrange anything and everything that you might want to do if laying around the resort pool or on the beach is not your scene. If a snorkelling trip is not a priority, but you want to work off some holiday kilos, try hiring a vehicle and drive down to the bottom of the island and do the short treck through the national park. It's a short walk (less than 2kms), but physically demanding because of the steep terrain and you need to take plenty of water with you as it gets very hot under the enclosed jungle canopy. We were amazed at the number of young families with young children and the resort is perfect for this type of relaxed family holiday. Many Scandinavian families obviously taking advantage of the direct flights into Krabi airport from Europe. As mentioned earlier there is a great selection of restaurants close by along the beach and one in particular called Krua Nidnoy is a stand out. Walk down the front steps onto the beach and turn left about 40 of 50 metres. The shrimp and garlic pizza was a highlight. Bamboo, along the beach to the right of the resort is also good and if you want to take a short ride into Saladan town don't miss out on going to Pa-Pa's restaurant. It's a hidden treasure and doesn't really look anything from the street, but when you go through to the rear of the restaurant which is located over the water, it's an oasis. The restaurant is run by a danish man and was recommended to us by a Finish couple we met who were staying in the next villa. This place is a must if you enjoy good food, both European and Thai and the wine and beer are also reasonably priced. One tip is that there is very good small fridge in your room and you can easily go accross the road to the Aleena Mini-Mart and purchase any snacks and drinks that you want. They have a good range both alcaholic and non alcaholic drinks and all snacks and any other small items you might need including sunscreen etc. This resort is classified 3 star, but is certainly at the upper end of the 3 star scale and it's location on the beautiful Khlong Dao beach makes it a perfect spot to stay if you want a relaxing holiday. We will be back again in the future.

Room Tip: The deluxe pool view villas are the best.

On arrival the check in was straight forward.We had a bungalow which was almost on the beach.It was clean and spacious, with tea/coffee making factilities,in room safe, flat screen tv,comfortable double bed,bath and shower,fridge and plenty of furniture where to put clothes.Clean beach towels were left in the room each day when the room was cleaned.The swimming pool was clean and surrounded by sunbeds.The breakfast when we were there was a set menu with about 4 different choices,this was problably because the hotel was not full, we were there in their green season.The hotel is on the the beach and a short stroll takes you to bars/restaurants etc but most were closed this time of year.Out the front on the main road there is plenty of places to eat and drink.You can get a tuk into Saladin about 5 minute ride. We would stay at this hotel again if we ever decide to go back to Koh Lanta

First and foremost, we are two young back-packers, so take it as you will. The place is designed for families, especially for kids. The positives is that the cheapest room we took was nice, had comfortable beds, wi-fi, good shower/bathroom, fridge and felt overall clean. If you choose to use their computers, it's more than we've paid in other cities. The free breakfast was so-so, opt for the banana pancake if you get a choice. The lunch and dinner was mediocre, a tad pricey for our budget. Ko Lanta isn't known for it's night-life and this place doesn't help, everyone turns in at 9pm. Does have free books to rent (not in english though), and is close to a 7-Eleven. Would only stay there for a couple nights, otherwise you start to get a little cabin fever.

We were about to change hotel and walked along the beach to check availability. The resort looked nice, rooms were located around a nice pool and a green area, right om the beautifull Klong Dao beach. Rooms were fresh and clean when we looked in and was quite ok. However, avoid the cheapest rooms located directly beside the road and probably can have some noise from traffic. For the price the hotel felt pretty good until we went to the restaurant for a lunch and everything went wrong...

We ordered two chicken burgers and pasta bolognese for the kids but perhaps should have ordered Thai food. When the food finally arrived after an hour the chicken was raw. We sent back the burgers and started with the pasta but did not get far before we discovered that the sauce (which we had ordered in a separate bowl) was ice cold and also it got sent back. When the sauce finally came back, the children had already eaten up all the spaghetti... After some time, we got exactly the same chicken burgers back but with new chips, they were still raw...

The lunch took more than two hours and all we got to eat was a some spaghetti without sauce... Something was obviously wrong and did not work in the kitchen, there were more customers who did not receive their food and it was generally sour and angry faces among the staff. The resort might be ok but with a restaurant that completely fails, we chose a different hotel.

I would rather go for another hotel. Although this is located on the beach. Standard rooms are of very poor quality, some facing directly to other rooms in the courtyard. The beach in front of the hotel is not the nicest Ko Lanta has to offer and the water there is extremely warm, due to its shallowness. The pool is equally warm, so only the shower offers some cooling. But the show only has one knob, so that can be tricky as well. No free internet in this hotel.
Walking down the beach, there are several nice restaurants and eateries and some massage places.
If you are not planning on taking a private villa, I would suggest to choose another hotel.
