Good view with rich environments

A lot of facilities such pool, restaurants
The hotel was very good. However, the location is far from the city and we had to pay for 300 baht every time when we wanted to go to city center at nights to enjoy. Also, the beach is not good for swimming because there are a lot of rocks. But the pool was very good. Perfect for people who want to have holiday in hotel.

Strong in all departments, but beach not great

spacious lobby, room, and restaurants; good service; great pool
The hotel is a bit distant from the Phuket city center and Patong beach so plan on a 15 min drive whenever you head into town. The beach is not a good one and no one really hangs out there. But the pool is great. Almost all the clientele is middle-aged Westerners. The hotel is not a noisy, bustling affair. The lobby is thinly populated, staid, and well-served.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: don"t miss the para-sailing in Patong Beach. It is safe and effortless even for older people or overweight people.

Good hotel but inconvenient location

Good and clean hotel with big swimming pool
The hotel is good for people who wants to have their holiday in a hotel. If you want to enjoy night life, I do not recommend you to stay here. Hotel is far from patong city center. You have to use taxi to go and come back. Each time it takes 300baht which is too much. Also, the hotel restaurants for lunch are not enough. However, the dinner has many varieties. I still recommend you to try restaurants in Patong.

Lovely hotel with appauling service

Seperate pools for Adults and young children
Check in was impersonal and certainly not the typical Thai style that one wold and shoudl expect. Room was clean, well maintained and well equipt Service from restaurants is below average at best. breakfast is nothing short of a bismal disaster. rare to have a host welcome you. Ever more rare if you have anyone offer you tea or coffee. One ends up getting it yourself, if there is any left at the waiter side station. Egg station is appauling. Chefs provide no welcome, pleasantries, personality, hospitality or basic elements of customer service. More of a "what do you want" and leave it there. You also have to wait in line for at least 10 - 20 minutes to receive your food as once chef cooking omlettes etc for the whole resort is a joke. With no scrambled eggs in teh bayne marie, I asked the egg chef who said it is in the bayne marie and was not happy when i advised that there had been none in the bayne marie for 30 minutes. He reluctantly made me fresh eggs. Several managers were walking around and more concerned about getting their breakfast then helping the local staff. i also found it strange that there is no service during breakfast shift, yet to clean up, each morning around 10am 6 0 8 other staff magically appreared to help clean up. Would have been nice if they came earlier & actually helped the restaurant staff who were trying under difficult circumstances. Food quality is average at best, except the lasagna which was quite delicious. Pizzas are pretty good as well and resonably prices. Cocktails are a big focus at teh resort, reasonably priced but quality is average at best with what seems local spirits and not the real deal. Housekeeping is probably the high light of the staff. friendly, attentive, hard working and helpful. most other staff seem very tired, unmotivated, disinterested and lack the typical Thai hospitality that i have experienced for over 16 years in thailand. Very dissapointed as it is such a lovely resor
Restaurant Tip: Hogs Breath cafe has just opened up opposite Robinsons Department Store, up on the 3rd floor. Although service is beginning, it is very friendly and food is amazing if you need a western change. Prices very reasonable and staff are very accommodating. Rib eye is AMAZING!!! Aussie owner is lovely.
