        avoid Dara”

        Multiple wifi outages per day, horrible breakfast buffet, "fitness" center with no ventilation (but never mind, most equipment does not work anyway), loud noise into the late hours of the night from the tour group guests( which seem to comprise 98% of this hotel's business) and a staff that is in equal measure incompetent and apathetic. The location is convenient only to Central Plaza area unless you have a vehicle at your disposal.

        We thourghly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this Hotel to any future travellers ,The staff were excellent ,the swimming pool was superb,and the general atmosphere within the complex is a compliment to the management and staff that certainly do anything to make your stay as enjoyable as possible There are three shopping malls within an easy walk and a bus service that runs past the door for those that want to travel further afield Unfortunately the breakfasts were cold , but this was not the fault of the Hotel , as it was caused by other tourists that left the lids open that was to keep the food heated It was great value for money,well situated,with great staff and services Thank you

        Good price with small but new building.

        Its location is the best. We arrived by car and saw that this hotel located at triangular point. We did manage avoid traffic light, u-turn, and traffic jam easily. The staffs were helpful and sincered. Every room had cable TV with movies and sports including our favorite, golf channel. Breakfast was equipped with everything. Bottled water were given 4 bottles every night, more than enough. If we're going to Phuket again, it would be our first choice.

        It is just across from Central Festival Phuket shopping mall

        I have to say that the hotel does look neat. It is not that new but it is clean and cozy. Painted with pop culture colours, designs and furnitures. It is unique in the sense that there's a brackish water swimming pool. It is near to Central Festival Shopping Mall for all your dining and shopping needs in one areas.

        Convenience, clean, and secure

        This hotel is easy to access from the main highway but it is far from the city. The biggest department store nearly is Central festival. Room is clean and comfort, the room area is enough to use for work and relax. WiFi is Ok. There is also sink and crockery in room for light meal. Terrace is large enough to have some beer or whiskey in night time. Security is good. Even though the climate is very hot but the open-air dining area is feel comfort and good taste. Moreover, the Pool next to this area is beautiful too. The Con is less of parking and less of snack and beverage in room. The lobby is too small to have more 3 discussion groups. Overall summarize, the hotel is the choice for resevation to be in Phuket outbound.

        Nice location, nice staff, good breakfast”

        This hotel is located in a very nice part of the Island in the southern part. The staff are friendly and most are nice to the animals. The rooms are very spacious. There are quite a few flies around breakfast though which they need to do something about. Has the best pool on the island and it is usually private as most people stay in the private pool villas. Very reasonable priced. We have been to Samui 8 times in recent years and this is definately value for money. Whenever you go please ensure the staff are good to the animals and mention it to the Management. Food scraps are good for these poor starving animals and they are no danger to anyone. We always feed them when we go there. This hotel is not based in a shopping area. You need to travel about 15 minutes to Lamei or 30 minutes max to Cha Weng which are the best shopping places on the island.

The hotel gives complimentary juices whole day and internet access. Our complimentary breakfast is next to the pool, though small but cozy.
