A cut above the rest
Location, friendly staff, architecture of the hotel.
Lovely resort on a quiet stretch of beach south of Phuket. Visited in high season, the beach and area around was very quiet. Idyllic. Hotel was more than I expected, a cut above other mid range hotels. Brilliant staff (all), mainly good wifi, good pool, excellent breakfast, cleanest beach in a populated area that I have ever visited, no polystyrene food containers or plastic bottles etc etc, nice beach view room with good shower, full bath, balcony, comfy bed, good TV and air con. A couple of local beach fronting restaurants next door that serve good food at a good price. The Beach Restaurant serves excellent food at street food prices. Downside is poor swimming at low tide as very rocky but there is a great pool so no bother. Taxi service is hit and miss, wouldn't take me to Patong as I was solo and two is the minimum. Similar re trip to Phuket, booked for 11.00am waited until 11.30am, no service. The hotel should provide this service rather than outsource. Obviously this issue only affects solo travellers. The cost of airport transfer one way at 900thb (42.3 kilometres = 21.33b per kilometre) is high and compares with 212thb (22.4 kilometre = 9.46b per kilometre) journey by taxi from Dom Meuang to central Bangkok. Leaves you thinking you have been exploited. A shame that this is the last transaction at the hotel and is the lasting memory. For transport reasons I will NOT revisit this hotel. I really think the hotel should run a shuttle a couple of times a day or so on a free basis or they risk return business not happening. Quiet is good but so is the opportunity to visit town. Excluding transport issues I would have rated Panwan Beach resort at 4+

Great location - but a tired hotel
Location, view and check in staff
A pretty tired hotel that could use a renovation. The hotel claims to have a fitness room but this is in fact a simple multi-workstation situated in the bar - that is not acceptable. Views from the hotel are cool and if done up it could be revitalised.

AWesome pool and location
Pool, internet and room size
Despite being the wet season, and the beach being closed, we loved the pool and missed out on non of the tropical holiday feeling.

Beach/pool, staff helpfulness and facilities
I travelled alone as a female and was originally slightly dubious about doing so, however from start to finish I was made to feel safe and taken care of. The resort is truly beautiful and the private beach is incredible! There is massage at the hotel, canoes an a cheap shuttle that travels to the main tourist points and you can even hire the driver for half a day or a whole day, for a very good price! He/she will take you wherever you want to go in 4 hours! I didn't want to leave the place and whenever I return to Thailand I will be staying at The Panwa Beach Resort!! The rooms are clean and spacious and there are regularly new complimentary toiletries placed in the bathrooms, which come in very handy!
