I went there with my mother, and our room was nice and clean, also the stuff was really helpful and friendly, which was super nice! But we thought that the hotel has a swimming pool, actually the pool is across the road at the Swing bar, and we did not really use it. The beach was nice and clean (compared...

But the beach is across the narrow street. Very convenient location, in a good part of the seaside village. One thing that makes it nice is it's in front of the no-swing swing-less Swing Bar (great for breakfast in the morning and drinks & entertainment at night. Free Wi-Fi and pool). The room is a little threadbare. There are holes...

We had another nice stay at this hotel. This is probably the best hotel we have found in Thailand for its value especially now that it has a swimming pool. The pool is located near the hotel's restaurant across the road, but it was clean and not too overcrowded. It is nice to enjoy a drink or food near the...

Great value rooms, clean and two free bottles of water a day. The hotel pool is shared with bar and restaurant customers giving it a great atmosphere. Take away service to the rooms available from The Swing Bar. Good quality wine. Beach fire shows on Mondays and Friday...

We have stayed at Rich Resort 4 times now and every time has been great. The rooms are excellent for the price and they have just added a new swimming pool near the beach. The manager and the girls on the front desk were really friendly and helpful with organizing our tours and transfer to and from the airport once...

Close to the beach. Reasonably clean. Friendly staff. Good breakfast. WiFi good quality. Linen although it smelled lovely and clean were torn up in so many places. Practically looked like an old rag. Complimentary water in the fridge. Close enough to all the craziness which is Lamai Market and nightlife should you wish to part take.

We spent New Years at the rich resort and swing bar and had a blast. The hotel was decently clean and in a great location on Lamai beach. They put on a fantastic fire show and New Years celebration. The hotel is a little odd now but they fixed any problems we had right way. (2 doors fell of their...

We have just returned from this hotel, we stayed last week. We were absolutely aghast at the amount of asbestos used in the construction all over the hotel, from balustrades on the staircase, to ceilings, walls, and the balcony shelf in the Swing Bar. This must surely constitute a serious health hazard. It was even being used in reparations to...

Stayed in june 2015. Hotel is cheap, clean, has a fridge/TV and a fan, which is more than enough for me. Close to the beach/swing bar which is good. Super helpful With booking ferries etc, definately recommend if youre a couple of days in Lamai.

Great hotel to stay at. Our room was spacious and the bathroom was clean! Our hallway smelled a little musty but it didn’t penetrate the room. It is right across from Swing Bar (incredible at all hours of the day/night) and the beach! Only complaint we have is the hotel reception staff is not helpful or friendly. They look like...
