Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were in La Vela for just over a week and had an amazing time. From the minute we arrived we were met with the most wonderful of staff. They were very welcoming and informative. We were there for Chinese New Year which was incredible. They had a fire display, dragon dance display and bar performance. It was a truly incredible visit. Thank you to Aya the front of house manager who went above and beyond with everything. JP was also great and couldn't do enough to help. The food was out of this world. Breakfast was top quality every day and the evening buffets are not to be missed! Thank you to the Muay Thai boxing coaches too who showed our daughter some great moves! Overall we can't recommend La Vela enough. Thank you for a magical experience.

Hotel's Favourite
Fantastic hotel, rooms spacious, spotless and ours also had a partial side sea view and a bathtub on the large balcony overlooking the jungle in the distance. Huge bed, plenty of storage space and even a large fridge in the room. The resort was quite quiet when we stayed, so never had any issues getting served or getting a sunbed, and the food we ate at both the pool bar and the breakfast buffet was great, lots of choice. The pools are huge and there are a few beds at Kokulo beach club overlooking the ocean but these tend to go quickly! The location is perfect, five minute walk down the quiet street at the side of the resort(which also had small supermarkets, massage places and a couple of restaurants), takes you past a great restaurant called Give me Five(must eat here!) & a very cool bar called the Fat Shark, where you feel like you're surrounded by jungle as it's just back from the road! A few minutes walk further takes you out to Bang Niang market, I recommend Be Bob Bar(owner very nice), Lan La bar(amazing fresh fruit daiquiris!), Mojito bar for a great cheap Mojito just across from the street food stalls which I highly recommend eating from. The beach at the hotel is stunning, clean soft sand and plenty of space, you can walk along the hotel beach to Bang Niang beach with even more choice of bars and restaurants. Kokulo beach club at the hotel was fun, they have a DJ, great cocktails, good service and beautiful views, was nice to sit here at night after a long day where we didn't want to venture out, but obviously it's a lot more expensive than the surrounding bars and restaurants, and a bit too easy to charge to the room which can result in a large bill at the end of the stay! We would definitely come back to this hotel.

This was our second visit at La Vela as we had previously stayed here in 2019. The room we were initially allocated was a bit musty and Jhane who accompanied us to our room from reception was excellent she recognised immediately that there was an issue and after speaking to management and understanding that that we were past guests arranged for a change of room and an upgrade, thank you Jhane. Our stay was excellent we had a lovely time relaxing. Our room was very spacious and comfortable although the bed could have been a bit firmer for our liking. Breakfast was superb with so much to choose from. Staff all super friendly. Location great as very easy to walk to bars, restaurants and market. Thank you to everyone at La Vela for making our stay such a memorable one.

Had a 4 night break after travelling around Thailand. I'll admit it wasn't our first choice of hotel but I certainly wasn't disappointed. It is very chic and modern yet there was a range of ages and also families staying here. Huge well appointed rooms with balcony bath and super king beds. Very clean and the bars were great value for being a high class hotel. Loved the pools and always found a quiet sunbed! Don't bother paying for higher class hotels, this one was simply perfect and only minutes away from the town centre whilst having an exclusive spot on the beach. Check out the kokulu beach bar with its excellent cocktails (around £6 for two during happy hour, made from branded spirits and fresh juices) and weekly fireworks show. You'll not be disappointed.

Good hotel . Breakfast very good. Very spacious rooms. Staff efficient and friendly. We had a pool access room - which fed into the pool the children’s section so was quite noisy. Also a lack of sun beds Gym was small but had some good equipment

Such a beautiful Hotel in a fantastic location right on the beach. Lovely breakfasts with so much choice. A special mention to Un'a, who is a trainee, and looks after us at breakfast every morning, greets us with a sunny smile and always very helpful service.

This is a very nice and relatively new hotel. It lacks a bit of the traditional Thai charm but it compensates with service and facilities ... small but nice gym, nice beds/room, fine pool and beach and brilliant restaurants ... both the buffets and breakfast.

This hotel is amazing for the price. It has a lovely open feel about it with beautiful gardens and a path leading to a quiet beach where we actually got engaged during an amazing sunset. The rooms are massive with outdoor hot tubs/baths to relax in. The hotel has great access to surrounding restaurants and they also offer a very cheap taxi service for slightly longer trips. We will be returning for sure!!
