I will be in Phuket October 29 – Nov 3 (arriving late the night of the 29th).
I will have the day of the 30th free and then have work meetings October 31 & Nov 1.
I have extended the trip until Nov 3rd, so I will have a few days on my own.
The hotel chosen for the meetings is the Patong Resort Hotel.
My questions are as follows:
How is the Patong Resort Hotel? Reviews sound mixed.. Should I stay at a nicer hotel nearby (would need something very convenient to the Patong for those 2 days)?
What about from Nov 1 – 3rd? What is the best area of the island to stay? Should I switch hotels? I will be responsible for the accommodations myself for those days (and understand Nov 1 is start of the peak season). I’d like to stay somewhere nice, in a convenient area, and will spend up to US $150/night. I am a female in my early 30s and will be on my own for those last 3 days.
Lastly, my flight on Nov 3rd is late at night (10 pm or so), will I need to book the hotel and pay for Sat night?
Thanks for your help!
