My girlfriend and I stayed in a Time for Lime bungalow during the Koh Lanta low season, August 2011. The bungalow seemed to be recently constructed and was extremely clean and nice, with air conditioning, a queen-size bed, mosquito net, shower with hot water, spacious room. I can't imagine having a nicer bungalow.
However, because this was the low season, we were the only guests at the place. Water currents were washing trash from Koh Phi Phi over to Koh Lanta, and because of it being low season, there was no incentive for Time for Lime (or any other hotel/resort) to clean their beaches. Also, some staff seemed as if they were using low season as an excuse to just hang out but not actually do anything at work, and we felt like we were invading their fun time. To be fair, though, other staff seemed happy to help us. We stayed for only one night, although we had planned to stay for three.
I write this not to fault Time for Lime, but to let prospective guests know: If you plan to stay on Koh Lanta during the low season, write the hotel to inquire about the status of the beach. Or, don't make a reservation, because there's no need.
