staff were very friendly but did not clean our room for our whole stay, there was only one toilet roll provided and no clean towels given. Location was good in that it was on a beach front but the tide was in the whole time and beach was dirty. I'd say avoid koh lanta in low season altogether!!

Love it here, Staying another week!”
Good budget choice. Great place to come and work, or to relax on the beach or by the pool.The mezzanine above the bar is cool and breezy.
I didn't have high hopes after reading other reviews but I was really pleasantly surprised. The rooms are basic enough, but everything you need. The family that run Moonwalk have been really great and welcoming to me.
The pool is small but so welcome to cool off during the day. The beach is loooong. At low tide, the beach looks like the surface of the moon, hence the name.
Lots of bars and restaurants to choose from, i am here during quiet season which suits me perfectly. Not a crazy party place :)
In a fan bungalow, it's hot, so upgrade to air con if you aren't used to the heat.
Rent a scooter, got to Old town on the other side of the island, definitely check out the National Park at the very bottom of the Island, one of the most perfect beaches I have ever seen. Beware of the Monkeys trying to steal things from your bag. funny experience. (220 bht entrance fee)

Dont stay here!”
Nice garden, AC and a fan.
It was not good. The staff is extremely rude and not helpful at all. The food was not good and the room standard was bad. We did not get what we paid for.

Swimming pool and location by the beach. Can't think of 3 good things.
The hotel and the swimming pool were good but the bedroom and bathroom were unclean and too small. It took a lot of effort to get the staff to change the blood stained bed sheets and pillow cases. The restaurant staff were very inattentive and hopelessly slow. But they got better towards the end of our stay. The beach was not the best on the island but it was great at low tide as all the rocks were exposed. Given the state of the rooms this place was overpriced.

They certainly tried very hard”
Sunset on Klong kong
We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, however we felt they had never left the resort as their island travel advice was quite misguided. We hired a driver to take us to lanta old town. The driver had absolutely no idea where he was going, drove straight past our destination and broke down in the middle of nowhere and left us stranded in a remote part of the island kilometers away from anywhere. The sun was baking and there was very little shade and we had to find our own way back. We learned it was much better to learn how to drive a scooter. The breakfast which was included was not appetising. We enjoyed everything else about the hotel but spent most of our time at mushrooms bar.

Good location, nice pool but smelly bungalow”
The location and the pool
The place is alright, but a bit expensive for what you get. There are better alternatives. The bungalow smelled a lot from muld and felt a bit unhealthy to sleep in. Location is good though - close to good restaurants and beach. Moonwalks restaurant is ok, but the thaifood comes without spices. Do not order the papaya salad.

mixed feelings about this budget hotel”
simple clean accomodations
Our expectations were are a bit higher than a broken toilet tank, no electric outlets no shower stall, no closet/table or surface to put anything on... but the bed and the floor. Ok if you're happy with backpack+ basics..but we left 2days into a10 day booking. OH,did anyone mention that the beach is a lunar landscape of unwalkable coral at low tide? Hence the hotel name. Yikes

A real shame”
I booked a bungalow in this hotel after seing beautiful pictures. What an awful disenchantment when it turned out that the so-called bungalow was actually more of a dark rabbit-hutch, near the staff rooms . No to mention that the room was not cleaned during my stay.
Avoid this place, there are plenty of nicer resort in Ko Lanta.

A once in a lifetime experience, hopefully”
Nice sunsets, nice cats at the premises
One ceiling light and bed side lamp did not work and were not fixed. The curtains were made of a fabric so flimsy you could look right through them. The fridge was dirty and reeked of stale beer. TV set was defective. The door fitted poorly to its frame, and there was no mosquito net. The a/c worked fine, but was so noisy that I could not sleep for it. Luckily, there was a ceiling fan. The door to the bathroom was broken. The bathroom itself was dirty and mouldy. There was warm water in the shower, but not in the fosset, which was defective. The sink was rattly, as it was not fixed proberly to the wall. During my six days stay, the bathroom was not cleaned and bed linen was not changed. Shampoo and soap were not refilled, those I had to provide myself. There was nowhere to dry clothes except on the small bench in front of the bungalow. Thai style mattress, i.e. very hard. The owner (?) speaks English very poorly, especially when the communication is problem oriented. The economics manager had a very hard time understanding the concept of a receipt. The only person who understood a little more English was a Burmese girl in the reception who fought a brave battle, but appearantly had too much to take care of - a lot slipped through her fingers. The kitchen is ok, overpriced however, compared to the many excellent small restaurants nearby which serve tasty, fresh and honest meals. The breakfast is basic, to be kind. Service at the restaurant is hesitant and incompetent. In general, orders were forgotten, confused or just botched... again, there are many good alternatives nearby. I do not go to Ko Lanta to stay in my hotel room all day. Three stars and the price charged considering, I expected something entirely different. I have stayed in "primitive" two stars resorts in Thailand, with much higher service standards than this place.

nothing - near the beach I suppose
I rarely have only negative things to say about a resort, but unfortunately this one has nothing going for it.
The staff were rude and unhelpful (except the English girl on reception, she was helpful).
When we can down for breakfast individually the main guy got very stressed with us as it was too compicated - sometimes there were three other families to serve!?
I have taken a very long time to put this report up as I wanted to do it honestly and not out of anger.
We were conned into having a compulsory New Year buffet (over 100GBP for 4 people) and got three different Thai 'dishes' and some satays.
Was not happy so they gave us a fish off the BBQ instead - most expensive fish ever! as we got no refund for the debacle that was the buffet.
The rooms were not very nice - really need a revamp. We have stayed in 'cheaper' accomodation in our 3 years in Thailand, but nothing like this!
I could go on but really probably not allowed enough characters!
Overall very dissapointing
