A true paradise location
You can hardly live closer to a beautiful beach than in Golden Bay Cottages. Beautiful and convenient location, just near a 2, maybe even 3 km beach where you can walk, run, swim, drink, eat and whatever else you want to do in your time for beach relaxation. About 400 m from the hotel is the main road of the island, where you'll find lots of shops, restaurants, massage studios, exchange shops, etc. The cottages are quite convenient, new, well maintained and a pleasure to live in. My only concern was the rather hard bed - but that's a matter of taste after all. Breakfast is not something to remember forever, but it's quite decent - especially as a free add-on to a nice low season price. Wifi is OK, even though sometimes it's quite slow - but I guess this is a matter of the island infrastructure. It's always a good idea to have a Thai SIM with lots of internet in it - at least for backup, or when you need faster speeds. And my only complaint for the whole stay, was from the first 5 minutes, then they tried to give me a deluxe bungalow instead of the twice more expensive sea view villa that I had booked. Fortunately, while still searching in my phone for the proof that this is not what I ordered, they knocked on my window and told me my villa would be ready in 10 minutes. Which doesn't mean that if I didn't argue, I wouldn't be left in the cheaper room, just paying double for that.

Great location on the beach, poor bedding.
Nice, clean, safe on a perfect location. Adequate breakfast with fresh fruits, cereals, freshly made eggs. The location is really amazing. In the middle of the best beach in ko lanta. Lots of families around but we were not really bothered, was very peaceful and relax. The only negative thing is that the room was very spartan , just an open closet for your clothes, but no drawers or cabinet . Bathroom, one shelf for all your toiletries.... obviously not enough. And another thing - the bed is sooo uncomfortable! It is just a rock. The mattress is so hard that you actually feel like you're sleeping on the floor. We were complaining about it and they added an extra mattress to soften a bit the hard original mattress. We were staying in a superior room (room13) which was literally 5 steps from the beach. Well worth the money and I would recommend booking a superior or deluxe bungalows because of their location and the way these rooms are furnished which is practically new.
