This hotel is 10 mins from Lamaibeach, and close to a small convenience store. We had a large room, with a balcony and a beautiful seaview, a fridge and a hairdryer. However, the bathroom is a little cramped and poorly lit. The pool is big enough, clean, and well exposed to the sun. Breakfast acceptable. The staff is efficient but moderately smiling. Considering the price, there is nothing wrong.

Hi

I enjoyed my stay at Lamai Buri. Close to everything. Very helpful staff.It was close to local shopping. The bars and restaurants were also close by. Unfortunately, the pool bar was shut. I would of that while doing renovations the restaurant would of been utilised.

Perfect place! I had a good rest, the staff was friendly, an excellent breakfast.
Near the Thai boxing hall, where I spent 3 weeks practicing!
Son liked the pool, where he swam every day!
I recommend for families with children, a quiet and peaceful place to relax.

We were now for the fourth time in this hotel. Always for 4 - 5 weeks in suite 407. Great view, great maids. Unfortunately it was not as we know it. The mood in the hotel is bad. No eye contact with guests from the manager and the staff. Staff looks scared. Regulars are not appreciated. The new manager is unsympathetic and acts in competent. The cleanliness in the pool area left to be desired, the pool boy sitting at the bar bored rum rather than the area to clean. Guests determine the volume of techno Music from the Poolbar on their mobile phone. Guests are really bothered by the noise and no one does anything. The water in the pool was several times dirty.

The previous manager, Mr. Sitisak, ran the hotel much better and the staff looked happier. Everything was alright.

It is a pity that sometimes gets a worse price for a long-term stay than the regular price on the website. We felt crazy.

It is a pity that the hotel so negatively remembered. We will not be back

Room Tip: Corner room 407, Suite

A lovely hotel set in beautiful grounds. We had a room overlooking the pool area and it was spacious and quiet. The breakfast, buffet style, was excellent - in particular the aubergines served in a tomato sauce with cheese. The dishes changed each day and there is an egg station as well. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is in walking distance to the main strip of bars and restaurants and close to the beach, but far enough away to be quiet during the evening. The pool area was very clean with plenty of loungers. The only negatives were the WiFi wasn't great - I had to sit on the steps of the restaurants to use Skype - and we had a couple of problems with the air conditioning, but these were quickly resolved.
