Not impressed at all. Jacuzzi room not worth the money. Rooms not cleaned until late in the day and then not up to scratch. Staff in breakfast were slovenly. Almost impossible to get served with tea or coffee then plates whipped away before you are barely finished. Reception staff totally ignore people. Needs a complete overhaul.

Great location, close to beach, many shops, restaurants, Temple Flea Market etc. but far enough away from Patong to maintain a relaxed environment. Breakfast is of mid range selection. If fruit, bread, cereal, juice, salad, eggs and pancakes are what you enjoy, then you will do just fine. With any luck, you might even score some bacon. Most staff are... More

My husband and I booked this trip through travelbag, UK. The old Phuket beach resort is a lovely hotel near to most amenities such as restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, mini supermarkets and most importantly the sandy beach is just a short walk away. Our room is located on the ' new' Serene wing overlooking the pool. The room is very... More

PROS: 1. Location! Location! Location! This place is about a 10-minute walk (or 5 if you have longer limbs. lol.) from Karon Beach. Right outside the Karon-Beach-Side gates are rows of massage places (legit/non-sleazy), restaurants, and convenience stores. It is also a 10-minute walk from Karon Plaza where you can find cheaper food than the row outside the gates. 2.... More
