"nothing beats this patong hotel for value for $"
In terms of value for money this hotel is unbeatable. Situated across the road from the beach and a few blocks from Bangla road it's ideal to escape when needed yet only a short walk home after a big night out. The burgers via room service are great, breakfast is fantastic (3 types of egg, fresh fruit salad and yogurt, all the bacon or ham you can […] eat), the wifi is fast and consistent so really, what more can you want. Friends said some rooms took a long time to get made up daily (fresh towels, beds made) but that's only the only gripe you could have - though we didn't have that issue. Key to a great stay I would imagine is too ensure you have a pool view room. W took that tip from someone that had stayed prior and it was well worth the marginal extra cost. I lived in London for 3 years and have travelled extensively. For the money, this hotel has to be one of the best. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Our room was dated. Tv with the big bulky back shower head sprayed in every direction. Room service tray sat outside room for 4 days with flies buzzing around it. Rooms didnt get made up til later in the day like after lunch time - annoying when out of towels and toilet paper. Pool bar, restaurant overpriced! Some good points - buffet breakfast good - […] pool clean - straight across room from beach. - great aircon! Just ask for a room further from the restaurant ours over looked the restaurant an the band plays til like 11, very noisy usually with very few people watching! Worth paying $100 extra to stay somewhere else Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Most recent stay in Patong"
Stayed in the deluxe pool access room which was great. Location was what we went for and it was perfect for the Patong area. Breakfast was ok, but have stayed in smaller resorts where it was much better. Wait staff were very friendly. Would stay there againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Stay here you will not be disappointed."
I had a superior pool view room and it was a great size room i would request the same room when i return to Thailand. the staff were always friendly reception staff lacked in a little english that would of helped when asking questions. cleaniness of the room excellent. staff at breakfast and also resturant were very good also. It was also good to have […] a band each night this was my first time to Thailand and loved it and a good hotel helps to have a good holiday i travelled with friends and they also stayed at this hotel and im sure they enjoyed themselves. the pool I really liked also although it is a shame the pool bar is around the corner and not in the middle of the decking where the childrens pool is situated as I believe pools are like a magnet for a great meeting place to enjoy other guest company at any hotel around the world. Im from australia and would recommend this hotel.very central to everything no need to get taxis hardly ever. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The location was excellent. Some of the fixtures and fittings needed some attention. The staff were always pleasant and helpful. Breakfast needed a bit more variety but was still quite substantial.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had to move rooms in the first 20 minutes of our stay as the room had mould and had a damp musty smell , and had no bathroom bench for toiletries etc. once we moved rooms that was then satisfactory.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"What a trip"
The food staff and the pool staff were incredible , but reception staff were soooooooo hard to try to communicate with, our room cleaner wasn't very good either our room only got cleaned around 2.30 to 3.00pm of a day , even though we went out every day between 8.00and 9.00am most days. Our bathroom taps were never cleaned had toothpaste. Splash on […] them the whole time . We were there for three weeks. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
a friend and i had a pool access room each at this hotel, the rooms are clean and quite big, how ever the furniture on the balconies and around the pool badly needs replacing as it looks quite old stained and worn the chrome frame are going rusty. it was a bit over priced for the pool access rooms. and when we checked we were told that if anyone else […] came to stay in our rooms that we would have to pay an extra 1000 baht approx $30 so considering we paid for two people in each room and only had one in each i was very annoyed as we have some thai friends we thought could come and stay with us for a night or two. as they did at the novotel which was ok for them to do there.

"Nice hotel with average service levels"
Stayed in baan laimai for 3 nights and overall it was a pleasant experience. Location was superb and pool was great. Rooms were pretty good for the price we paid for. Service on the other hand was rather lacking in some members of the reception as they were hostile when it came to stuff other than checking in and checking out.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Resort, Pleasant Stay, Highly Recommend!"
Had a very nice stay at this resort. Everything was organised when we arrived. Staff were nice and helpful. Pool is fantastic with plenty of room for everyone (we went early April, so I'm not sure if this is a quiet time there). Definitely seems like one of the best resorts in the area and it is in an excellent position. Restaurant out the front was […] pleasant with live music each night. Beach was just a walk across the road and plenty of stalls nearby. If I come back I will definitely stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location, right beside all the action. Perfect for small vacation but don't expect to relax at night. Beach just across street and huge pool. Nice hotel overall.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Feb holiday 2013 phuket"
We had a very pleasant holiday. Breakfast buffet good and pool area very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
we booked this hotel at the last minute the room rate was outrageous almost Aud 600.00 per night. One would expect five start hotel with five star service. No bath in the room. Just a basic room. No privacy at the pool, anyone off the street could walk in. Took five phone calls and two hours for someone to bring some tea bags/sugar to our room. They […] supply two tea bags in the room to make tea!!!, I would have accepted a lot more for the amount we paid. The hotel entrance is on a side street. No big signs mentioning that. Taxi driver tried to dump us at the back of the hotel which is the beach side. We refused to get out so he had to drive around to find the entrance. Heaps of customers were seen lugging their suitcases across the pool area to go the entrance of the hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Awesome pool at Baan Laimai."
Lovely, helpful staff, beautiful pool, great location, clean and comfortable room. Some renovations going on at present but did not cause too much concern. Check in and checkout swift and efficient. Breakfast was good but a bit more variety from day to day would improve it. Would stay here agin.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel unfortunately located"
I stayed at this hotel over New Years. I had booked the superior room for myself and boyfriend, and two other friends booked the deluxe seaview room (only difference was balcony). The superior room was simple and basic as expected. When booking the room I had requested a king bed, and in the 'special instruction' option I further specified a king-bed. […] Unfortunately when we arrived (at 10pm exhausted), we were shown to our room with two single beds as it was "the only room available" (I had booked six months ago). When I brought this to their attention, they advised housekeeping would move them together and change the sheets to make a King, though this didn't happen for two days. The air conditioning unit was faulty so sleeping was very unpleasant, making the room not worth the money we paid at all. The hotel is amazingly designed especially with the pool and restaurant, however the situation of the bar/restaurant (available to anyone on the street) was less than satisfactory. Every night there were performers on a stage until around 2am, which was probably 50m from our room as we were on the first floor, so sleep again was limited for the nights we were home early. We checked out, stayed at Phi Phi Island for a few nights and then checked back in for our last night and luckily, got an amazing new room on the fourth floor - much quieter, a working air conditioning and had its own rooftop garden and outdoor area - definitely worth the money, unfortunately only 1 night!

"Very Happy Customers"
Baan Laimai is very central, we were worried it would be noisy being close to Bangla Road, but it wasn't and we stayed here comfortably with an 8 month old baby, it was great being close to everything and walked almost everywhere, it is also across the road from the beach. They also supplied a cot. If you want a quiet room, ask for this to be located […] away from the lobby area where they have bands everynight, we could hardly hear the music from our room. Staff were very friendly. Room is much larger then the usual studio type room. We would stay here again. Breakfast buffet was lovely and they also have baby seats. We were also upgraded to a pool room view for free which was great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Top Location and Hotel"
The motel is in a very good location straight across the road from the beach, and close to all night life. Staff were friendly and helpful, and there was a good band on every night. I had a direct pool access room which was very clean and well maintained.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic stay - 5 stars!"
Stayed at the Baan Laimai for 10 days in late November this year. The resort was fantastic and such great rates. I was skeptical getting closer to our booking after reading some reviews but can now see that these people must have been staying at a different resort. The staff at reception were fantastic, we arrived at the hotel around 11pm, tired from […] travelling the person at the desk got us to our room as quickly as possible and we were even guceb a free upgrade to a deluxe pool view room. The rooms were very spacious, we had 3 people staying - 1 king bed and 1 fold out couch. The bathroom was also beautiful and big as well. The highlight of the hotel is the pool! It is spectacular, it always looked beautifully clean. The swim up pool bar was amazing - 2 for 1 cocktails, enough said. The breakfast buffet was diverse and easy enough to find what you were looking for - a large range of hot and cold foods and heaps of fruit. We ate at the restaurant a fee nights as well and the meals were delicious and very reasonably priced. The location of the hotel is also great, right across from the each and only a short walk from Bangla Road. We had a fantastic time at the resort and will definitely be back again next year!

"Baan Lamai - November review"
The hotel was fine however there were a few niggling issues that I can confirm are pain points for other guests 1. Noise: Live band plays till 12 every night - Whilst I was not directly affected by this, I can see how some may find this to be an issue. 2. A 1500 baht check in bond fee is quite unreasonable and is not something I have found at other […] Phuket hotels. 3. Customer service can sometimes be considered lazy however I personally found it to be acceptable 4. Pool bar drinks are expensive Conversely, the hotel does have some good points: 1. Close proximity to shopping and Bangla road 2. Buffet breakfast, whilst not varied, was quite good 3. Swimming pool is quite nice, however the beach water is actually warmer on most days. Based on the this review, I would recommend this hotel, if like me, you generally tend to be out past 12 AM most nights. As for value for money, its a little expensive for what it is and for a matter of $30-$40 more per night, the Graceland hotel would be my suggestion. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel, location and food... Only prob is difficulty communicating with staff. Amazing pool, would definitely consider staying there again. We stayed 17 nights :))Genuine Expedia guest review
Decent breakfast, great clean rooms. Not too far from Bangla roadGenuine Expedia guest review
Greate service,nice place to relax and enjoy,there is a band every night in a garden playing english tunes,and swim up bar in swimming poolGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location but,"
The location was great, right in the middle of Patong, but the hotel was very noisy, the band played till midnight every night so if you are in a room at the front of the hotel then it is difficult to sleep. There were small things like no clock in the room, no clothes hooks in the bathroom, leaking shower recess, leaking air conditioner, bar fridges […] not cold and no hotel directory in the room so every question we had about services was a call to reception, small issues I know but when they add up it puts a dampener on the whole experience. We have stayed in other hotels in the immediate area and been happier. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing value, we will be back!"
Great hotel, everything you need. Good breakfast, fruit, pastries, eggs cooked fresh anyway you like. 2for1 cocktails at the pool bar, yum! Room cleaned daily, fresh towels and sheets changed. Friendly staff, band plays in the lobby at night, really great performers. All in all a great place we will be back and will recommend to our friends.Genuine Expedia guest review
I was very pleased with the price of the hotel especially due to the location being right near the main road, beach and bangla entertainment area. The hotel room was located in the old part of the hotel and was looking a little sad, but the room was spacious, confortable and clean. The pool was a highlight and cocktails by the pool is a must do. The […] hotel restaurant and buffet breakfast are superb. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This is my second stay at this resort and love everything about it. Check in was quick and easy, reception staff were very helpful as were all the staff, they just couldnt do enough for you. The restaurant offers a fantastic choice all day long and the band plays every night which are amazing. Location is perfect just across the road from the beach […] and 10 minutes walk to Bangla road. We had a pool view room which also gave us ocean views. The room is a good size with small balcony. Breakfast was good offerring an excellent choice for everyone. Shops are right at your doorstep.

"Old & smelly"
I booked 2 basic rooms, they were way under the standard of what 'basic' should be. From the moment we walked in the room, we were hit with an awful smell of a very old room. WHen we turned on the airconditioner, it was spitting out more smelly air and bits of black stuff onto the bed & pillows. We walked into the very old bathroom, with a mouldy sink, […] and realised the room had NO WINDOWS. It turned out that we were put in the old building, but there was no mention of the fact that they were renovating the premises at the time of booking. I tried to get moved into a more livable room but they said this is what you booked, the basic room. If i knew they were renovating and that the basic room was in the old building, i could have made other arrangements. All in all, very disappointing. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hip hotel"
Great location!!! breakfast was amazing. Something for EVERYONE! cereal, pastries, toast, waffles, pancakes, omelette station, bacon, sausages, fruit, curry, juice! staff at reception were so friendly!!! obviously have a slow and inefficient check-in system, but they were not rude to us. and yes we got a minor upgrade to a room with a slight view of […] the ocean, it was lovely. Pool is huge! pool bar is awesome, not enough people took advantage of it! Band does play, but they are really good and most of us just slept through it. couldnt hear any construction going on. the elevators worked perfectly Definately would stay there again :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Dreadful, dreadful hotel!!!!!!"
Don't stay here, there is much better hotels at similar or cheaper prices!!!! Rooms are dirty and badly maintained, room service is non-existent, 7 piece live band plays till midnight every night so can't sleep, construction noise starts at 8.00 am and goes all day, hot water is intermittent, dining area is depressing it is so old and shabby. Other […] reviewers talk about staff being rude and unfriendly but I just think they are constantly abused by ripped off and disgruntled guests and are unhappy. It's a shame they have to take the flak but this hotel and the service is terrible. We rang for a bottle opener 3 times over 3 hours but never received it. Without prior notice, they charge a large bond when you check in which is not returned for 2 weeks after check out. Most other hotels just keep your card number but don't actually charge your account unless you damage something. Only good points is the pool and location. Any good reviews of this place makes me think they are made by management because everyone I spoke to was disgruntled and wouldn't stay there again. Would never stay there again, the whole experience ruined our holiday. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
after staying at 4 other (4/5 star) hotels through out asia this was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in...there was no service at all,we booked a private room with balcony but kids used it as a walk through and were running around jumping off the bridge into the pool with no adult suppervision also there were adults swimming in there under wear […] which is not a good look....90% of guest are of indian and arab appearance with no social manners!! .breakfast was average with no service....the only good note is its in a good location........

"A very good experience !!"
Excellent location. Smooth check-in/check-out, very helpful and friendly service, particularly at the reception desk. Most rooms have a little balcony/sit-out with a couple of chairs & coffee table. On request, even moved us to a bigger/better sea-front room, when it became available, at no additional cost. Very considerate of the hotel to provide (in […] the rooms) basic beach slippers, cane shopping/day-trip bags and umbrellas, especially as it rained a couple of days of our stay. Just remember - even if you've pre-paid - hotel requires a refundable deposit of about US $ 100 at check-in, towards expenses/laundry, etc. On the whole, a very good experience !!

"Great location I will be back."
The hotel is located in a great area straight across the road from the beach and with walking distance to all main places in Patong, including the night club strip. I had a room with direct access to the pool, which was unreal and will be getting the same type of room again. Above all great location and service and will be returning.Genuine Expedia guest review
Only thing that kept it from being a 5 star resort, was the construction going on. I cant wait til they finish it. It will be the place to be on patong beach when its done. Loved itGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Beach Location"
We had some trouble with the shower and air conditioning at the beginning of the trip. We had to switch rooms twice. But they up graded us to a nicer room with a view, which was nice. The breakfast wasn't included but we ate there twice and it was delicious. Dinner was a bit pricey, but great food. The elevator was not in service yet, as it's a new […] building. That would have been nice to know prior, as we were on the top floor. However they did make me a delicious birthday cake on my special day, a nice personal touch.
