    I WON'T GO BACK”

    A relic that still has a lot to offer but the staff needs to "move on". I won't tolerate unnecessary attitude and rudeness especially when it is labeled a spa and I am paying to be there. I recommend you stay in a non-gay place in Pathong. Royal Paradise is just too full of parasites and abject losers.

    THE STAFF HORRIFIC!”

    A good price for all the amenities if you can tolerate the staff. Someone needs to remind these Thai employees who pays their salary. If the white man that owns the place doesn't get paid by me, another white man, they don't get paid. Unfortunately it appears they think it rains money from the sky. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS PLACE!!

    STANDARD ROYAL PARADISE REJECTS”

    The worst attitude and service that I have ever encountered in my life!! The front desk staff is useless. Aircons in several rooms need or needed maintenance. The hotel only had a few guests but the front desk's solution was to close my bathroom door! I had to go to the front desk again and was given another room. The queen rolled his eyes at me. I mean, SERIOUSLY!!!

    The place has potential with the right owner or right staff. Don't expect anybody beautiful. Do expect your standard low frequency bottom-feeder rejects.

    Good location and free sauna”

    The room was small on the third floor. The problem is that the roof has rats moving up and down so it spoiled my sleep. As for the value as its really a good deal. The other option is connect guest house but no sauna or roof top jacuzzi. The best thing is breakfast. So get the other room with balcony. Cost only a 100 bath more. I did not know. Also try booking the airport return. Its a bit cheaper than airport 800 bath.

    Good accomodation”

    In the heart of the gay area/bars /restaurants /shops and shows. Beach +-15 min walk. Hotel is simple. Booked a room w/double bed but moved to suite which is in another building . The room booked originally was too small, no space to put suitcases. Suite was the only available option. Photos on the website are not realistic, so be sure you book a more spacious room. Other than that,staff is friendly, with the exception of one or two.

    Stayed at Aquarius from 16th to 29th August in room 306. Overall a great place to stay, room was clean and functional with a well stocked mini bar that I did not use. The hotel staff were friendly, helpful and efficient, room was always cleaned while I was having breakfast. The breakfast was good with 2 western and 2 Asian choices, fruit yogurt, juice and coffee. More than enough to start the day. Location is excellent, close to the nightlife and shopping. This hotel has a sauna with steam and dry sauna, Jacuzzi and pool which are open in the afternoon and evening. The facilities are clean and relaxing. I will definitely stay at Aquarius again next year. The only slight inconvenience is that there is no lift and if I had been any higher than the third floor going up and down several times a day would have got tiresome.

    For the price that i paid, it was actually just right. The breakfast was ok as im not a breakfast person. Yes, the rooms are old but it was clean and doesnt have any stinky smell. It was quiet at night despite the location. The facilities are ok and almost everyone was friendly, may it be guests or staff. The staff were intimidating at first because of the language barrier but so far, i would definitely come back.

    The room was in the annex, so in the opposite building on the third floor, no elevator. Room was big but simply decorated. The Bathroom suffered some missing tiles. Overall is was OK but there are much better options for this price available in this area.

    Fun, casual and very convenient”

    Awesome attention, highly serviced hotel, at a perfect price. The fact it includes the sauna makes it a perfect match for beach cruising in the daytime, sauna frolicking in the afternoon, and gay nightlife a block away. Beach is some 8 blocks away, crossing the party-central area, so if you are in Phuket for some laid back fun, this is a perfect option.

    Very Gay Friendly - staff is the star!”

    Had a little hiccup with the transfer to the hotel. The location is good (especially for LGBT), near massage parlors and gay clubs. Near Jungceylon and Bangla as well. The room is huge , bed is a bit stiff, decor is not modern. I had a scary issue with the in-room safe, it automatically locked with my passport inside without me finishing entering the passcode. However, the staff was so helpful to get my stuff out. If you are in Phuket and want to be near the gay scene, would recommend it.

    Great location, in the centre amongst shops and bars, walking distance to the beach. Bed and pillow covers have stains, but the room generally is reasonably clean. Staffs are friendly and helpful. There are good gym, and private sun deck facilities to enjoy while stay. The bar looks small, but there are a variety of drinks available, including lovely draught Chang beer.

    Bit of a mixed bag. I've been to gay hotels before however this time round I wasn't interested in going partying and was only in Patong to go to the immigration office. The room (I had a small suite) was a great size although needs updating but everything worked. Staff are extremely lovely and pleasant. The gym, which is really important to me, was a death trap. Can handle machines and equipment that have seen better days but things were falling off, running machine needed oiling. I suspect there is a (loss of a better term) seedy side to this hotel via the sauna but I didn't go in. Catered for mainly older people (I'm 34....don't consider that old though) this place is great to bring a partner to or if you want to have some big ole gay fun

    THis hotel is not what it used to be. No many gay travelers on town. If you want to "play gay" find a nicer place nearby and use your Grindr. There were more $$$$boys than tourists when I was there
