Lovely clean hotel, very friendly/helpful staff
Great rooms with a/c, tv, wifi, fridge and pretty big bathroom. Nice little pool. Located just off the main road so it's nice and quiet.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Taro Hotel after 3 weeks of travelling around Thailand. It was the perfect place to relax. Not too far from the beach (10-15 mins approx) although the walk did get a bit tedious towards the end of the week. Great places to eat nearby and a 7-11 just down the road. The pool was nice to have a dip in to escape the heat, there was never anyone else in it when we used it which was good as it may have been a bit cramped. All of the staff were really helpful, nothing was ever a problem for them and they have is lots of help and advice. We rented a motorbike for a couple of days which they organised and gave advice on places to go around the island. There were also coin slot washing machines right next to the hotel which is great for long stays. Overall it is a lovely hotel and good value for money! Would definitely recommend.

Off location and unfriendly staff
Clean, neat
The hotel is a little hard to find and there are no signs outside reception once you get there. No staff was around when I arrived and no number to call but eventually a man from the house across the street called the owner who later came down. There was no toilet paper supplied and the toilet did not flush.

Clean rooms, nice pool.
Peaceful, but still close to amenities.
This was a really great place to stay. Nice and quiet, but still close enough to shops and nightlife. I would recommend this hotel to budget travellers, couples and family with older children.

Very nice and clean apartment!
Everything was very great, clean and fresh.
I can really recommend this hostel, it not in the big main street, in walk away. I jut stayed one night, the beed was a bit hard..that's the only negative!

good apartment just a little hard to find
good quality rooms
the rooms were good all self contained kitchen, good bathroom, large modern rooms. the only problem that i had was that the hotel was slightly hard to find. also the area is not great beach wise compared to the rest of phuket, however as it is not one of the main resort areas everything is slightly cheaper which is a bonus.

home away from home
location, more than adequate amenities, hospitable owner/manager
we have been to phuket several times and had stayed in more popular areas (i.e. patong, surin, chalong, kata), so thought we go for a more quiet and relaxing break in kamala. as this was our first time, we didn't really know what to expect but we thought it would be an adventure. we arrived late in the evening and stayed at the bungalow room, which was small but adequate and comfortable. come morning we realized that the hotel was not full, hence we requested to see the studio room and asked for a possible upgrade. terry (owner/manager) was very accommodating and charged us a minimal (almost negligible) fee for an upgrade for the next two nights -- it was awesome! now the studio room was more than we had expected. you get a full kitchen in case you prefer to cook, which works really well for longer staying guests like most of our neighbors. the beds were a bit too firm for our taste but no biggie, the room was spacious and we get our own balcony facing the waterfall pool which is very relaxing by the way.

Best Kept Secret in Phuket!
Very clean, modern, and just a short walk to the beach
So, I did a LOT of research before I booked any hotel before my arrival in Phuket and finally decided on Taro for many reasons. I was still a little nervous about my choice until I arrived. Airport transfer waiting, rooms immaculately clean with maid service 2-3 times a week, friendly and accommodating staff, and only a five minute walk to the beach! Pool was great as well. If you are hesitating about booking this place, DON'T! I ended up staying for almost 3 months :).

nice hotel , good location
location , spacious room
located not far for main road in kamala, The hotel is walking distance from everything (from 5 to ten minutes). But you better need a motorbike to have easy access to9 everything. Quiet hotel, spacious and comfortable rooms. Access to the swimming pool right from your room. Good place , good stay , good price.

Lovely room interior and good pricing
Good price and nice room
The room is better and more spacious than we expected when comparing to the price. I'd rather recommend this hotel which is worth for value. Though the hotel's facilities are not quite complete but for short stay, it reached my satisfaction. You can go to convenient store like 7/11 by walk but to the beach you may need a ride.
