Friendly staff with nice location
3 minute walk from the beach!
overall a very pleasant stay with large rooms, a decent american-style breakfast, and friendly staff. the hotel is within easy walking distance of the beach, restaurants, and shopping. there are also lots of tuk tuks available nearby. the area is much quieter than many places in phuket and the hotel is right across the street from a park area. lounge chairs and jet-skiing available along the beach too!

Nice Place
Location, staff very friendly
This is a great hotel. It's clean and has everything you need if you just want somewhere to stay near a great beach. Its not a resort with a pool etc but who needs one when the beach is just across the road. Brekky is good too!

Good looking clean rooms, nice staff,
Enjoyed our 3 day stay at Benyada. Clean and nice rooms. Not to much noise and very close to Surin beach (3 minutes walk). Nice smiling staff. Free internet in the lobby.

Average Hotel across from stunning beach
Good price hotel in an expensive area, very close to beach, large breakfast
Surin beach in Phuket is a beautiful clear beach, but very much overtaken by the sunlounger crowd, if this is your thing then you'll love it! Close enough to Kamala and Patong beaches so you can escape there on a motorbike in 15-30mins or get an expensive tuk tuk. Strip of restaurants / bars along the beach in Surin are nice, lots of high end pricey options and some other mid range ones. Nothing budget really, but then where in Phuket is budget. Hotel itself was fine, good option amongst a range of other expensive hotels, good flatscreen tv, comfy room and great breakfast. Free and fast wifi was a bonus, and staff were helpful. A nice stay but left a lot to be desired.

Close to beach in Surin
Clean, and short walk to beach
Hotel was in close proximity to beach, and rooms were well sized. Breakfast was served downstairs in nice surroundings, and was very good for hotel breakfast with lots of variety.

Good location, close to a great beach.
Close to the beach, friendly staff.
it isn't a swimming pool but a kid's wading pool.. the rooms are nice but the beds are a little hard. the best feature of the hotel is it's proximity to the beach. just a 2 minute walk.

Great location & great service
Close to the beautiful Surin beach, quiet, friendly & helpful staff, good breakfast, value for money
We read a number of reviews on this lodge prior to booking & we found that the general consensus was that Benyada was clean, quiet, friendly & value for money. We found this to be the case. You can always find fault in things if you are looking for it (especially in 3 star accommodation) and Benyada was not perfect by any means. But it served our purpose well & was an excellent base in which to explore Phuket. If you are looking for a cheap, clean & well positioned place to stay then give Benyada a try.

Nice hotel in a great location
Close to beach, large comfortable rooms
Restaurant prices do not include service taxes
surin beach is a great area for couples and families though the dining is relatively expensive for thailand. the beach and water are beautiful. benyada lodge is a short walk from the beach in a nice street. the restaurant is good, though the prices do not include taxes which from my experience is unusual for thailand. the rooms are large, clean and have nice finishing touches. be aware there is no lift in the hotel so there are stairs to walk up however i didn't see this as a problem. i would happily recommend benyada lodge for its price and location.
