Old-fashioned but comfortable

The staff here weren’t so friendly and didn't speak much English when we were here, only showing us the bungalows out the back and failing to mention they have deluxe and superior rooms in a hotel-style building above reception, even after being asked.
The bungalows behind reception have simple tiled balconies and old-fashioned rooms with large pale pink tiled floors, ancient mid-size fridge plus urn, old-fashioned Thai wooden furniture, and an old box TV. Having said that, the air-con or fan-cooled rooms are cheap and you only need to walk across the road to get to the beach. A 10-minute walk down the main street will get you right in the centre of Lamai's shopping. Lamoon Lamai is easy to miss, with only a small sign on their on-street reception (non-beach side) -- look for Aloha Resort directly opposite.
