The staff here are very relaxed. Don't expect them to run around after you like in the big hotels - but this is not a complaint. This is a family run business that goes at the pace of the island. We really enjoyed staying here. We had a week to settle in and take it easy. The food in he...

After staying at the nearby Baan Lanta Spa resort I decided to view the rooms at KBVR. The very friendly family who own the establishment were kind helpful and with a/c bungalow rooms at half the price a bargain. Rooms were clean staff very happy and helpful and the beach was 20 meters from my front door

I stayed her in Early May taking advantage of their very popular three for two deal. I booked three nights but cleared out after the second. Previous reviews indicated that the place was poorly run and the staff rude and incompetent. Being from the UK this didn’t initially put me off and i liked look of the location. As it...

I have never had to give such an awful rating to a hotel before. The staff here are not helpful. I stayed in the air con room for three nights. It was never cleaned. The majority of the staff was not friendly and rude. I have NEVER experienced this in any of my trips to Thailand or trips anywhere for...

I am glad we didn't read previous reviews or we wouldn't have come. We found it on a scooter ride and changed hotels so we could be on the beach. We had a triple room for 1600 baht.It appeared to be fairly new. ( I can see why people complain about the grass bungalows. ) It was clean and comfortable....

We have stayed at this place many times and we love it. Not the cleanest place, but good value with the bungalows almost right on the beach. The why not bar has a very friendly staff and good music.

Beautiful location, nice restaurant for a quick lunch, sadly spoilt by some of the poorest customer services we've encountered so far. We seemed to have been very lucky with our room - it was in the new buildings upstairs facing the mountians and so we missed out on the noise of the bar and had a very quiet balcony area...

The service and food is really poor. A local rock band spoils the atmosphere by playing the same songs every night.
