Central location
The hotel is based on the kata / karon main strip, and could not be faulted for location, however the decor was faded. The pools, one of the main reasons for booking closed at 7PM every evening.... sad as I was looking forward to lounging there in the evenings. Breakfast was rather poor for the money.. or any money for that matter, even the fruits were unripe and generally tasteless. The spa and therapies at this resort were exorbitant, much cheaper were all the surrounding shops, resturants and massage places.

Friendly staff but poor crisis management
Friendly staff, nicely decorated rooms, good location near to many amenities
The staff were extremely friendly and spoke relatively good english. I liked the way that they offered you a seat at the lobby while they got the documents ready and they actually bothered to walk over to you with the documents to facilitate your check in. The decorations were more of the traditional style and were quite nice and I was extremely satisfied with the room. The resort is also reasonably located from the beautiful Kata beach, just a short 10 min walk away and had many restaurants near it so finding food was never an issue. What blemished the stay was the blackout that my friends and I encountered during our 2nd night at the hotel. Both our adjoining rooms had no power for the entire night till the next day. After waiting for approximately 2 hours and walking back and forth to the front desk and back to our rooms, we finally got them to open another 2 rooms for us to stay for the night as we had an early morning the next day with our day trip to phi phi islands. I was extremely disappointed with their lack of initiative in handling this as the staff on duty didn't offer us alternative rooms until we requested and that was already 1am in the morning after our long wait. What made the whole experience worse was that they didn't offer any compensation upfront and we had to confront the manager to request and negotiate for some form of compensation for the poor night that we had. Eventually they agreed to give us some minimal discount of our spa package but it was negligible as compared to the poor night's rest that we had. All in all, the stay would have been much more enjoyable if not for the blackout, for indeed the staff are friendly and helpful and spoke relatively good english. The spa was nice too. However, there are quite alot of mosquitos in the compound at night so do stay indoors. I'm divided over whether I would stay there again if I ever visit Phuket again.

Good location, noisy hotel, no cozy.
Good location, near the beach. Clean room. Good breakfast. Nice staff.
My husband and I stayed at Kata Palm Resort for the end of our holidays in Thailand. First we visit Bangkok and Chang Mai and maybe that´s why staying in Kata Palm was disappointing. First of all the hotel is massive, which makes it everything but cozy. Second, is full of families with kids playing around the pool, so when you are paying more money to have a room with a "pool view" you are actually paying more money to have more noise every morning. The decoration is too dark and old fashion, which is a shame as the rooms are quite big and comfortable. On the other hand the breakfast was quite good, the service staff very helpul and the room spacious and very clean. If you like resorts and you are a family, the place is ok. If you are a couple, looking for relax and intimacy this is definitely not the place for you.

Beautiful Thai style rooms
Easy access to pool and central to Kata town, beautiful room
Good destination hotel for Kata Town. Beach access blocked to a large extent by ClubMed so you don't feel like you are at the beach.

Pool Access Rooms - Excellent
Pool Access Rooms, Nice quiet location
2 Adults and 2 Teenagers had 2 pool access rooms. Rooms came with a huge day bed in addition to the bedding in the room. Balcony with 2 sunbeds, 3 steps into the pool, also had a swim up bar - one in each pool. Service and food were fantastic and prices were very cheap for a hotel. Breakfasts were hot and fresh. Rooms were a very good price and included breakfast. Beds were hard but in any hotel in Asia that is not uncommon.
