Nice Hotel right on the beach
Beautiful gardens - beach front location - confortable room
Nice stay in the Lanta Sand Resort, perfectiy located on Long Beach with direct access to the sea and the beach bars and restaurants. Deluxe villas are large and confortable and located in the middle of a beautiful garden.
A bit expansive though, we found a cheaper deal for a beach front bungalow with AC which was even better and decided to spend the rest of our trip in another resort.

not worth it
big bathroom, quiet, free pick up from pier
the only good thing we can say about this hotel was the free pick up but the driver didn't even say hello to us or helped us with the luggage to get to the car. the bungalow had a terrible smell, the outside tube was not working. if you leave the curtains open everybody gets to see you, so if you want privacy you need to close the curtains - so its very dark in the room.
we can't give any information about the food there, we had a deal without breakfast.
there is no place to hang up beach towels. beach is full of shells, so its not so comfy to walk on it, but that's not the hotel's fault :-)

Relaxation in Koh Lanta
Clean, great staff, Luxury.
Wonderful all the way. Huge room, great balcony with mattress and our own little "pool". Fresh water each day and lots of it, which was great. Attentive staff from A - Z. Dvd player, but remember to take films with you if you like. However, who needs it! The beach is great, nice swimming pools and surroundings. Did not visit the spa but heard it was good. This place was just a great friend in Thailand, will visit again if possible.

lanta is lovely but i didn't love lanta sands
fruit selection for breakfast, employees very friendly, loungers around the pool and in front of the beach.
the beginning of the season in koh lanta meant that the hotel was not fully functioning. the beach bar was severely lacking and there was minimal atmosphere at the resort.
there wasn't a lot of beach for lying on as the waves washed quite high on the the sand. i spent more time outside the front of another hotel further down the beach.
the food was average, we ate only breakfast at the resort because it was included in the room price.
the villa room was much smaller than pictured on the website and the lighting was very dark. enough hot water in the sink but not for showers. water in the sink was quite dirty and left a rim of black each time it was used.
i think there are better options elsewhere.

A relaxing getaway.
close to the beach, fast and easy tour/scooter rental, friendly staff
We got a great deal on the suite and enjoyed the outdoor shower. We could relax at the quiet beach every day and venture out to different parts of the island from our central location. We could visit Time for Lime cooking school, animal shelter and local beaches easily.

Nice hotel/ wouldn't say a 4star resort though
We were given free upgrade upon arrival, quick easy moped hire,
Nice hotel, I wouldn't say it's a 4 star resort though!
No room service/ nothing in mini bar- you actually have to purchase what you want before they fill your fridge/ hot water isn't hot/ more like Luke warm showers! ( but hey it's Thailand and its hot enough without needing a hot shower) and on 1 day when running the water out of the tap it was a brown consistency!
On the up side/ pool access rooms are great! Pool areas nice and relaxing!

great beach, lovely pools, large rooms
booked several nights here on a last minute deal and really enjoyed our stay. large, clean rooms with everything you need for a comfortable stay, Big balconies with a large sun bed and outside tub (unfortunately only cold water), Loved the beach it is certainly one of the nicer beaches on the island, long sandy stretch, no rocks and clean. the hotel itself has 3 large pools which we enjoyed in the evenings. Beach and pool towels available, spa was average. We did not encounter any problems with the staff but made sure after reading other reviews to keep things locked up. From the beach you can easily access several restaurants and bars. All in all we were very pleased with our deal.
