Close to the beach with friendly staff

Just a 2 min walk to the beach
Surin is a lovely beach, not too crowded, with crystal clear water. The hotel is only a hop skip to the beach (as no resort can be directly on the beach) it was a good option for the price!
Restaurant Tip: Thai food at the hotel was actually very good.

Didn't live up to the marketing - but not bad

Helpful staff, clean and comfortable but nothing special
The hotel didn't live up to the images and description found online. We were stuck in a room near the busy road which wasn't nice while the rooms nearer the beach are much more pleasant in terms of location and noise. If you're staying in Boracay I would recommend a beach front hotel located at the quieter areas of the beach. The beach is the main attraction of the island after all.

Clean, affordable hotel in great location

Location is fantastic
I was travelling with my two teenage daughters, they stayed in a twin and I in a double. The rooms are fairly basic but clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and helpful and I would not hesitate staying here again given the value it represents and its proximity to the main beach at Surin...a very special place!

Good hotel in a better area of Phuket

location, beach
Spacious nice looking rooms, close to the beach. The beach itself was packed by Swedes and Russians - but as we discovered later, it was nothing compared to Patong. Beach is nice sand, plenty of dining options on the beach - including both sitdown restaurants and small stalls. Do try to walk to neighboring beaches both north and south (short walk, really), they are prettier and better for snorkeling. The hotel restaurant is overpriced - we had most expensive dinner there during our 15 day trip to southern Thailand. Breakfast is OK - choices of asian, american or continental options. ride to Phuket town ~TBH500 on taxi, 400 on tuktuk, 30 on bus.

Nice hotel, great location

Close to the beach, nice rooms
Good enough to return to, which we did a week later. Bathrooms could be nicer and breakfast was so-so. But other than that, a nice hotel close to Surin beach.

Nice location, but averagae service

the location is ideal for pretty surin beach. the hotel is nice, but service is a bit mediocre. not at all worth the praise sung by lonely planet. roof top bar and pool are not open, so be warned. food ok, but there are a few nice restaurants near by.

Great location, but overpriced, not friendly

Surin Beach - small and cozy for Phuket - is very close
I came for a sporting event taking place at Laguna Phuket, where hotels run $300/night, so I stayed at Surin Beach so that I could afford three nights. I did not love it, partly because of the hotel and partly because everything in the area (not just the hotel) seemed overpriced: baht for a 10-minute taxi ride to the next beach up the coast, baht for an average plate of pasta. Lots of other people have commented on how friendly the staff were, but that was not my experience, at least with the reception area staff. I speak Thai so would switch back and forth in case there was some shyness about English but that wasn't it. Everyone seemed to just be doing their job and not making any effort to extend any hospitality. I do not mind that in budget lodging, but expect a bit more from a place like this.
Travel tip: To avoid the high taxi fees, you can rent a motorbike for baht/day at the mini-mart two doors down. The couple that runs the mini-mart are very good about providing some tips about the immediate area, they'll blow up your floating devise before you head down to the beach, etc.

Decent Location spartan hotel

near Surin Beach, quiet area
Premise: We come to Phuket two times a year and this was just a quick overnight stop for us as we rented a 5 star on the other side of the island for 9 nights for a really good deal. We also visited this hotel a couple years ago when we stayed next door at the Twin Palms and asked them to show us their studio. During that visit, they showed us a beautiful demo studio suite. Unfortunately they gave us a pretty mediocre suite this time. My guess is that they only have one demo suite to show people but when you book, they give you something bad. Accommodations are decent but not great for a 3 star hotel. They don't have parking so you'll have to park on the street. Paid $50 USD all inclusive (incl. tax and breakfast). I've stayed in nicer 3 star hotels in Phuket that are better value, BUT if you like Surin beach, this hotel is really cheap. The room was really spartan. Bed is hard. A/C was really powerful. The bathroom doesn't have a bathtub so your feet will get wet even when you want to just use the sink. Hotel doesn't have any elevators so you have to hike up multiple floors. Free wireless Internet is stable and overall pretty fast. Breakfast was decent, but portions were limited. Juice was orange syrup, and not real juice. Coffee was decent. Bacon and eggs are pretty much the same everywhere. Pancakes were decent but their menu lied about maple syrup. Remove the maple, and you have corn syrup. (I know what real maple syrup is as my friends have maple syrup farms in Canada)
Shopping Tip: The original Lemongrass Hut is right next door. The place is great for buying hand made soaps etc.

Nice little hotel away from sleazy Patong

Modern room, good breakfast
was pleasantly suprised by the quality of the room. the beach was fine for swimming. hat surin was a little on the quiet side for us so spent most evenings in patong. overall though a good place to spend a few nights.

Lovely hotel

The air conditioning was amazing
I would recommend Benyada to others. The rooms were sufficient and it was a minutes walk away from an amazing beach. Most of the staff were really friendly except for one guy who had a major attitude problem and is probably working in the wrong profession as at no time did I want to have to deal with him as he was such a difficult person. On the whole though, the Benyada was clean and cheap and close to most things.
