Although we didn't experience any major problems in Bangkok, it felt good to be so safe and relaxed in Koh Lanta. We really felt we could leave the door open with money on the table, and everything would still be there when we got back!
The bungalows were basic, but you really don't need any more when you're right on the beach! The TV was not working when we were there, but who needs it when you can watch the sunset everyday. Most of the time we spent on the bungalow we were sitting on the balcony enjoying the view and drinking some cold beer we bought up the road.
The breakfast was very good, and it varied during the whole time we've been there. You are requested to take of your shows when entering the breakfast room, but after a while you get used to it.
The staff is as welcoming as everyone mentions, and they were helpful when we wanted to book a day trip around the islands. We've done it with Garden hill, as the price was good even if we booked through the hotel, and you shouldn't miss the Emerald cave.
The wifi from the room was very weak, but worked perfectly from the reception.
There were small supermarkets close to the hotel, ATMs and nice restaurant. We particularly liked Star to your right when you get to the main road. The girl didn't have a menu, but we managed to understand each other and she always cooked lovely cheap meals. To your right you have Mr. Green, where we experienced very hot food!
It might be a good idea to take a flash light for when you leave in the evening - we did found it helpful!
In Saladan there are more shops and restaurans, and a tuk tuk rides costs between 40-50B per person.
The beach was very long, as expected, and we always found it clean. It was never crowded on the sand or sea, so we always had space for ourselves, and sun beds in front of the hotel. The sea was warm and quiet.
