We stayed at L hotel for 4 nights in July. Each floor is assigned a Butler, who checks in with you in the morning to help you plan your day. We got a great deal by purchasing our room rate online, but this didn't include the shuttle bus service to the main part of town (probably 15-20mins walk with no footpaths and a lot of traffic!). We could take the shuttle to the "L beach" which was lovely to visit for the day - but lots of waves so not really suitable for swimming. Black sand beach as well - probably the Aussie beaches look nicer, but at least the water is warm! There was a little cafe at the hotel beach, which I wished we'd had time to have a cheap lunch.
The hotel room was very small (choosing the cheapest one) and bathroom is open - so probably best for couples rather than friends! Decor and body products were beautiful, and lots of special touches of a boutique hotel (dessert for turn down treat etc).
The L spa was great, I had a pedicure and a massage. The gym was very small (2 people could use comfortably) but I made use of it every day.
The location was not perfect, being further away from the action, however there were plenty of food spots nearby and breakfast was huge and filling - you can order set menus or al a carte. We hired a scooter to get around more easily.
We got ripped off by a money changer on one day (watch out for them, my husband and I both counted the money out but he still managed to swipe $150AUD back of $400 we changed without us noticing!). We asked our butler what to do, and she escorted my husband back to the money changer, with the hotel security guard, and the money changer instantly gave all the stolen money back!
There were a few things that L hotel could do to become more environmentally friendly. We found our towels were being changed twice a day - even with the sign left out. We loved the towel animals left for us each night, but I felt bad about the amount of towels we were using! Also, larger water bottles or using glass refillable bottles, rather that guests using at least 4 small ones per day.
We had a lovely and romantic stay at L hotel, we would stay again!
