Really comfy and clean bungalow
Andaman Seaside Resort is very small property in the middle of Bang Tao town. They have few rooms in main building and several bungalows. We opted for bungalow and walked into a space that really deserves 5 stars. We booked only 2 days but decided to stay additional 3 days. Our room was spotless and very nicely decorated. Bathroom was huge and superb. Pool was small but very nice and clean. We found one mosquito the first night but after we sent it to heaven we didn't see any Mosquitos for entire 5 days. The main lobby is small and smells with cigarettes when you sit on the couch. Internet isn't strong. We were never able to connect to it not even in the lobby or breakfast area. Breakfast is simple eggs toast fruit fake juice cereal and coffe/ tea but our omelette was always fluffy and nice. The girl that works the front desk at night is super extra nice and gives that extra glow with her personality. There is not much to do on the property unless you have kids and just want to dump them into the pool while you are reading book but there are nice restaurants on the street and Surin beach - much cleaner than Bang Tao beach is only short ride away (100b one way)
There is loud bar on the other side of the creek but we got disturbed only once when some really drunk tourist started singing karaoke at 3 am and it sounded like impaled cat. Suggestion to the hotel would be to put some tall vegetation along the creek to block the sound... Otherwise if you put AC it is not bad at all.
Take bungalow- they are really nice
Surin beach is much nicer and very close

Extra Large room
Extra Large room with two beds!
the room was great! the only con about the rooms i stayed it was it took a really long time to get cold via the air conditioning, but it was 100+ degrees out side. there was very little water pressure, and the wifi never seemed to work. never worked in my room for the 6 days i stayed there... on any device.

Quiet and peaceful
Close to the beach, food shops. the bangalow is big. Good for relaxing lifestyle.
we were here for our friend's wedding at the big hotel across the road and the way to the beach is just next to that hotel. it's pretty easy for us to catch up with our friends :)
anyway, the room is nice, the pool is quite small but still good. only breakfast doesn't have much to choose.

Pretty place in a good location
the room we booked was full, so we got a free upgrade. very nice shower with little stones on the floor (original), very large bed, nice but small pool.

Nice resort, with great location and good prices
very pleasant resort, on a fairly quiet street. just 50 meters from the beach, and with a nice garden and pool area.
the room (deluxe family room) was very big, and with all the usual amenities.
breakfast buffet was perhaps not great, but perfectly adequate.

Not seaside but good location
Not seaside - no views at all.
Rooms looked clean but front wing of hotel looks very motel-like.
Bathroom had constant smell.
Surrounded by beachside resorts - go and stay there instead.

Nice cheap hotel but noisy air conditionner
close to the beach that is very long and really nice, and free wifi
at the beginning we wer in the romm 216 wich is not so good coz it has window in the side the sun rise and make the room really hot. our air conditionner fall down so they change our room to the next room 215. it's same room as the 216 but less hot. the room is really big wiht big space, fridge wiht 2 bottles of water waiting for you everyday and with 2 coffees and tea also everyday, that you can make yourself wiht the hot water system.
the badroom floor design is really special and little dangerous i found coz there is speace beeween stones they put on the floor.
the shower don't work really well, it's really hard to have water pressure and hot water too. sometimes you have to wait long time that pressure come back.
if you don't spend your time on the beach everyday there is not many things to do around so you need rent a scooter or a car or take taxi.
but if you want everyday go to beahc and take sunbath that really good location you just have to cross the little road and you are on a very long and beautifull beach that is really clean, only white sand and a warm blue water.
Only the beach that is just on the other side of the road after 1mn walking in the little path.

Great rooms and lovely service but...
Good sized rooms, free drinks in minibar, fantastic bathrooms.
The resort itself was nice and small,lovely pool and in a good location only 100m from the beach. Unfortuately Bang Tao beach was not the nicest place to stay. I would recommend this for travellers who do not want to experience the 'real Thailand' as there is a distinct absence of any authentic local cuisine or services. I suggest hiring a moto or car and travelling to some bigger towns for good food. Also, there is a Taxi Mafia who controls the prices from the government bus station in Phuket Town and also in Bang Tao itself. Good luck trying to bargain, they lie and say there are no meter taxis in Phuket and there were no tuktuks to be seen our whole stay. Dissapointing stay.
Hire a moto or car so you can get out and experience some real Thailand culture and food.

Great location, friendly staff
close to the beach, all things necessary are within walking distance
the room sizes and quality exceeded what we expected to get considering what we paid. beds are very hard, but large and clean. we will be returning for sure.
Hotel Feature Tip:
July is low season, good waves and can hire surf boards within walking distance.
