Khao Lak Resort ?? seems to be my best choice.....

Have been trying to work out the best resort to stay in for a reasonable price in the low season for a week, this one has great reviews on here and seems to be a good location as we will be on foot and want nearby restauants etc, dont want to be stuck in a resort....

does anyone have any comments regarding this place before i go ahead with my decision?

the other option was the merlin hotel.......

In terms of location Khaolak Resort is a better option. It is in La On village, so there will be plenty of restaurants and shops open. Plus it is very easy to get around on foot. Merlin is located on Khao Lak Beach which has less in terms of nearby facilities. You would probably need to hire a motorbike or take a taxi and head to La On for more restaurant options.

I would agree with KhaolakYoga. See pics taken last March at http://tiny.cc/ws9a6

If you are considering a beachfront villa, I understand that work was to be undertaken on them during the Wet Season to convert the single, very large and expensive, units into two more affordable units. You may wish to check progress with the hotel through Sun, the Reservations Manager on rsvn@khaolakresort.com

Ramada Resort right on Bang Niang Beach - on their own website has a special on the Deluxe Oasis Rooms which look really nice - the resort rates very highly on TA - when you go to their rates page put in your dates to check availability and you then reach the special rates (2290 baht). This is because they are adding a few new beachfront villas but from what I've read isn't affecting people staying there at all.
