Stayed here for Christmas and New Year, booking on Hotels.com. Klong Khong beach is quite a good choice: half way up the island, not too busy, but with a decent selection of bars and restaurants within walking distance. It has good soft sand, but (like many of the beaches on Lanta) there are rocks in the sea which you have to negotiate when swimming, especially at low tide.
The small bungalow-type room we stayed in was simple and reasonable, but no more than that (though I think they have some better, more recently renovated rooms also). They all have a fridge - important if you want to take advantage of the cheap booze available at 7-Eleven etc. The restaurant and reception area are very nicely located right on the beach. So the setting was nice. The breakfast was simple but decent, while the food we had a la carte on a couple of evenings was very nice indeed.
Now to the downsides. The swimming pool is small and pokey. And as others have noted, the service in the restaurant left a lot to be desired: at times slow to the point of being painful! That said, the main lady manning the reception desk was helpful and responsive when we approached her, and got things done.
Overall, a reasonable mid-range place. But from our research and comparison with others, you should be able to get better for a similar price.
