We arrived early in morning and were happily surprised that there was room ready for us. We also got breakfast because our departure time would also be so early that we wouldn't have time to eat breakfast then. Room was nice and clean. Kids loved mainpool, playroom and playground. Breakfast was good. In the restaurant kids menu was nice. Food... More

Everything about this place was great! Breakfast was great, staff was nice and helpful, cleanliness overall was great and the variety of different swimmingpools to choose from was perfect. But what made our stay at the hotel just absolutely amazing was the team of Kresho, Martina, Ivana and Jeffrey from Carpe Diem Entertainment. The amount of positive energy they were... More

This was our first time in Phuket so Kata/ Karon was recommended by friends due to family suitability. The area was ok. Short distance to shops, great restaurants, massage places and the convenience shop was cheap and very handy! The resort itself was underwhelming. The slide in the pool was under maintenance for the first 3 days of our stay... More

I really wanted to love this hotel. Great location, fantastic pool and slide for the kids and our accommodation was huge. One of the few places in Phuket to offer two bedrooms and a lounge for our family of 5. Plus it had a kitchen, two full bathrooms, all the rooms were huge and opening straight up to the pool...

Nice hotel. Friendly staff. Good restaurant and bar service. Ideally located 10 minutes from 2 great beaches. Not a great start to our visit however, as on arrival we were told our agent hadn't paid for the room. The local rep didn't know what to do when we contacted her as the office in Bangkok was now closed for the... More

In middle of Kata, close to shops and restaurants. Quiet in evenings. Beach 10 mins easy walk away. Stylish open-style reception, friendly and helpful staff. Gardens and public areas are well groomed. We had room 8103, ground floor right at the back of the hotel close to the spa and adult pool - very quiet apart from the music playing... More
