A great get away!”
We loved staying at this hotel! The cabanas were so cute and very comfortable. The beach is quiet and quite secluded. The staff was quite helpful to answer questions, book rides and scooters etc. Breakfast was ok, but the restaurant staff was a little grumpy. Overall I would recommend this place to my friends and I would stay here again.
Ladies on reception are very nice, also very helpful. Hotel is In great location, close to the nice restaurants, sunset bars, Tesco is few minutes walk away, also some authentic street food around. Rooms were very clean, I recommend to book sea view room. I gave 3 stars for facilities because of their restaurant, breakfast was very tasty but rest of the meals I did not enjoy too much. What I enjoyed most was talking mynah bird, i had so much fun talking to him! House keeping was very good, every day girls cleaned my room to spotless, please say thank you to them from me, they are very hard working.
Right on the peach.”
Spent several days here. In two different rooms. Rooms were very clean, if somewhat in need of minor repairs and updating. Decent sized, cabana styled , built in a lovely garden setting, just steps form the Andaman Sea. amazing beach with fine sand. Nice pool as well Staff were very polite and helpful We originally booked two nights in a ocean view , decided to stay longer, but had to settle for a regular room . They were pretty much exactly the same room except for the view. Would definitely recommend this property. Priced quite well .
Not good value for money ”
We stayed over Christmas when, I know, everything is more expensive but I didn't think it was good value. We stayed in one of the older bungalows and it looked tired and old fashioned. Generally I felt the whole place looked a little tired and could benefit from a fresh paint job. The beds weren't comfortable, we only had 5 hangers in the wardrobe - The staff were ok but a little grumpy. The pool looked much better in the photos - The location was nice because it was at the end of the beautiful Klong Nin beach so nice a quiet - It's a gorgeous beach - can't really swim in it at low tide, but great to walk along and go check out the other places further south. I won't stay here again but we didn't have a terrible time. If it was cheaper, it would have been fine.
If you want a quiet part of the beach this is a great property. It’s in a lovely location with its own private beach (accessed by foot bridge). It’s in easy walking distance to the beach restaurants & bars. And has all facilities on the door step (7/11, ATM, restaurants, bike hire, massage etc) Breakfast is adequate, but nothing more. Rooms simple but clean. We were glad to have a beach front room to watch the sun set each evening. Enough sun loungers & parasols. Be sure to explore the island, it is beautiful & easy. Klong Nin is an excellent choice. Beautiful beach, lovely vibe (less trashy than further south)
Very nice and quiet place to stay”
We would come back for sure!
A well run hotel.Very heplful staff.”
A good stay,but the hotel is right at the end of the beach and not the best part as quite a lot of rocks.However we walked down the beach and got deck chairs so not much of a problem. We had booked a beach front bungalow but althouth facing the beach it has a canal right in front of it and you have to cross a bridge to get to the beach.Not what we were expecting,also small and basic not deluxe.We therefore moved to a garden villa and forfeited the view for a much bigger better equipped room. Staff very helpful.Breakfast was made to order and very good.Also ate there at night and food was good.
Perfect and quiet beach front walking distance to the hustle and bustle”
Loved our 5 night stay! The room (beach front villa) was simple and perfect. Cleaned everyday by lovely friendly staff. Beautiful view and a very short walk to beach and pool. Il Mare is at the end of Klong Nin beach, perfect quiet spot to lie on the resorts beach lounges or a 5 minute walk along the beach to Klong Nin restaurants, massage, etc. (Its a great swimming beach, some rocks at low tide but easy to avoid.) Just as easy to leave the resort and walk to many resturants and shops along the main road. We rented a scooter from the resort and explored the island from there. Only cons are breakfast is very basic, but that's fine considering there are so many options around and the sand had been eroded on this end of the beach exposing some concrete structures, but that was being covered up by the end of our stay so I'd say it was only temporary. Would stay again and recommend to anyone visiting Koh Lanta!
Excellent Budget hotel. Nice garden and realky cozy. Only negative comment is that you can’t swim in the sea at liw tide in front of the hotel. Not their fault.....
Old room and not clean ”
The room was old and not clean, breakfast was normal and not enough seat available. The thing is good for this place is located near the beach
Found this hotel by chance- driving past. Photos do not do it justice. Had everything we wanted. So quiet and peaceful which was ideal to relax. Food lovely, staff very helpful, definitely recommend highly.
Amazing little hotel”
Drove around the island looking for a suitable place to stay. Called in to look at il mare and for us it ticked all of the boxes. Lovely clean large rooms on the beachfront. Stunning sunsets, excellent WiFi, nice clean swimming pool for a dip. Tv, tea and coffee facilities, excellent breakfast, loungers with cusions and towels provided. Nice snorkelling on rocks at side of beach. The beach is so quiet, I was alone many times on it which is just what I wanted. This is not a big chain hotel, and that’s what made it so relaxing and enjoyable for our stay. Everything was nice and easy and very relaxing. Staff are friendly and happy. Nothing was too much trouble. Amazing place to do yoga on the beach or early morning exercise. Out of the hussle and hussle of the North if the island. I travel alone with my daughter and felt safe here. Photos don’t do it justice! It’s much better! Visited many hotels that photos looked ok but the hotel was bad not like the photos! You will not be disappointed
a bit dated but very close to beach ”
There were ants in the bed on the first night. The hotel was full do we couldn't swap rooms. They cleaned the room the next day, which largely got rid of the ants, but there were more in the bed. The location is a plus, right on the beach with the hotel's own beach chairs to lie on. Breakfast was OK but nothing special compared to other places we stayed on the island. Overall the place had a bit of a 1970s feel to it. We stayed here between the Christmas and New Year period so the prices were at a premium and not worth it.
We stayed at this hotel for 18 days and had a beach front room which was very clean and each evening you get to see the most amazing sunsets. We will be staying here again. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. However. It would be an advantage to have a safe in the room. We had to deposit over valuables in the hotel safe.
We were picked up at the Saladan Pier and taken to the resort. We were greeted and welcomed to the resort, the bungalow was spacious, bright and very clean. The linen could be upgraded but ok. The food was very good they serve at the restaurant. The location is 20 Minutes drive from the pier. It's a quiet beach but that's ok cause that's what we were looking for. We only spent two nights and wish we could've stayed longer. I have nothing bad to say about this place.
We found Il Mare last minute and loved it! We were traveling as a couple and looking for a quiet relaxing place. Il Mare was perfect for that. The beach there is awesome -we loved the beach front lounge chairs. The beach right in front of the resort is a bit rocky, but just walk 2 minutes down the beach and its great swimming! We spent all day everyday in the ocean. The staff is very nice and the rooms were clean, big, and comfortable. We stayed 3 nights, went to another resort and ended up leaving the second resort to return to Il Mare! It is in a great location -walking distance to some of the best restaurants on Koh Lanta. Good breakfast as well. Would definitely return to Il Mare, it was our favorite stay on Koh Lanta. I would definitely recommend Il Mare!!! Great value for the money!
Perfect chillout location ”
We loved the location on the quiet beautiful beach.Great for swimming ,except at low tide, but not a problem as just 100 metres up the beach perfect. Set in beautiful gardens, full of lovely shrubs and trees. Only minutes walk from a good choice of nice restaurants. Bring a small torch to walk at night. Very safe feel to resort. Only small negatives. Umbrellas at sunbeds need to be upgraded/replaced and better shampoo/soap could be provided at little cost. Overall, we would definitely go back.
Perfect hotel for us!!”
We had such an amazing time in Ko Lanta! We first stayed at a beach hotel and because it was everything we wanted we wanted to extend but they were fully booked. Luckly we found a deluxe with garden view at Il mare. It is on the beach(after you cross a small bridge over a river), the rooms were big, clean and quite new. Breakfast was ok, not many choices but delicious.staff was amazing and really care for your comfort! But the best thing is the beach, long, wide , soft sand and he waves keep you entertained . The hotel has a volley net and ball if you like playing. In the evening the atmoshere was romantic, with all the bars having chairs on the beach, candles and the sound of the waves.. No noisy boats, no vendors just perfect beach holiday. Ps take a look at the night life activity on the sand when you come back from dinner, you will find many types of crab and snails. Perfect!
Beach resort with friendly staff”
Positive: - Free pickup from Saladan pier if you call them - Overall friendly, welcoming and helpful staff - Car rental in the hotel is possible - Next to the beach - Quiet in the nighttime - Sound of waves when going to bed - View of sunset in the sea from the balcony Negative: - Overall, the hotel is overpriced - Aircondition wasn't steady, so the room would either be too cool or too hot - Interior was quite basic and outdated (bed, blanket, TV) - Shower's head was rusty and needs to be replaced - There is a small stream between the actual beach and the hotel which you have to cross using one of two a small bridges from the hotel - Pool is too small considering the amount of people in the hotel (high season) - You can only really go swimming at the beach near the hotel during high tide, during low tide there's too many rocks around. Swimming during low tide required a walk of 500 m to a spot without rocks - Breakfast can only be ordered, there is no buffet. If you are very hungry the food you can order is most likely not enough. - WIFI was a bit slow at times
Good hotel- great location”
Stau was great - located on one of the best beaches on the island (Klong Nin). Room was clean, right on the bech, ac worked very well and breakfast was included. Only complaint is when the toilet is flushed it smelled.
