Reviewed 8 January 2014

I have been told about this place, but until I saw it I couldn´t believe it. I´ve been in too many hostels around the world, all of them with different prices and expectations in it, but I´ve never found a place as dirty as this, maybe in Rome in a hostel of 6 euros per day. We stayed three days there and I have only had one shower as it´s hard to have a shower in there without thinking you are getting even dirtier than before. The sheets were almost brown, and one of it, even with a blood stain. Disgusting.

We arrived here for the full moon party and I have to say also, that the location of this place is amazing. It is not in the same beach were the party takes place, but it´s just a five minutes walk away so you can enjoy the party, and then come back walking. Also, the bungalows are sitted just a few, litterally, metres from the beach. We stayed in a frontline bungalo wtihout A/C and the views from the room were amazing.

Recommendable place for those who are not worried about salubrity.

The location is lovely but the accomodation is not. The place could do with a complete makeover for the prices they are charging. There is lots of pests scurrying around and the staff are not too helpful. It is not good value for the price they charge. The water in he washroom was a bit smelly also. I wouldn't recommend this place.

I love leela beach. great location to stay for relaxing and its quite. but very old furniture and no water heaters in the bathroom and the water from the sink smells musty. I also found termites in the room furniture. The price also a little bit expensive

The problem with Leela Beach is that although it gives you the ultimate experience in waking up, opening your door onto the beach and walking into the ocean, the resort itself is a complete dump and in dire need of some major TLC. Holes in the shacks let in angry colonies of ants and cockroaches, no hot water and no cleaning done unless asked, plus the staff seem cold and unapproachable. It would make sense seeing as they charge much more than its worth to give the place a good old lick of paint and give it a good spruce up, but I'd not recommend staying here unless you couldn't find anywhere else. The food is nice though but it's all a bit scummy and taking the Mickey for what they charge.

We booked an aircon bungalow for 4 nights over fullmoon party. We checked in and checked out 30 minutes later after we found a room in another resort. The surrounding is dirty and there are cables coming out from the bottom everywhere. Our bungalow was full of holes and acutally there were workes on the roof of our bungalow - I think they tried to repair the broken roof by putting corrugated metal on the top. We paid 1300 Baht per night for this Bungalow (low season) which is a lot too much! There is a resort next to Leela Beach Bungalows (called Sarikantang) with bungalows for only 100 Baht more (1400 Baht per night - low season) and if you compare what they offer and what Leela Beach Bungalows offers it is just ridiculous.
At Leela Beach Bungalow you get for 1300 BHT per night: old Bungalow with aircon, very old furniture, dirty surrounding, no Wifi, no Breakfast included, holes in your Bungalow (roof and walls) unfriendly staff!
At Sarikantang you get for 1400 BHT per night: Very friendly - english speaking - staff, a modern and nice Bungalow with fridge and TV, Wifi, very good breakfast, very good hotel infrastructure (like spa, massage, two pools, nice restaurant), free shuttle to haad rin beach!
If you compare these services, Leela Beach Bungalow is absolutely not worth the money - an andequate price would be around 600 BHT per night but not 1300!
I would not recommend it - you get much better bungalows / rooms for this money!

The beach is ideal. These bungalows are disgusting. Do not book ahead of time when visiting thailand everything is negotiable with many choices. We paid $35 for a fan beachfront room. Which in thai standards is a small fortune. The very nice hotel next door was far nicer for $10 more a night. Avoid total rip.
