2/10 Poor

Not a 5 star hotel.
No Gold VIP recognition or benefits upon checkin. Staff has no idea what it is. Poor parking. Hard to navigate hotel from lobby to beach. Had top floor ocean front room with good view. Bathtub on balcony wouldn’t drain. Pillows and mattress are dated and not 5 star. Breakfast was fine. There are better properties to stay at. Disappointed in this ‘5 star’ hotel.

Amazing hotel!
La Vela is a beautiful hotel, right on the beach with the most amazing swimming pools and friendly service. We stayed in a family room which was spacious and comfortable and had a room divider screen to allow children and parents to have their own space. Our children (ages 9 and 6) enjoyed the kids club and thought the floating obstacle course was the best thing ever! They also made a great friend in one of the lovely La Vela staff members, Fang, who was wonderful with them. The breakfast buffet was varied and extensive and the other restaurants on site were also excellent. La Vela is also really close to Bang Niang with its restaurants, shops and fab night market. It was great to be able to walk out of the hotel and find lots of local food and drink options just around the corner. Taxis and songtheaws are also easy to come by to visit other parts of Khao Lak. Coconut beach and White Sand Beach are gorgeous! The beach bar, sunsets and amazing fire show also helped to make our stay undoubtedly 5*. Thanks La Vela! In the kids’ words…“best hotel ever!”
