If you want hectic and party then look at Patong if you want a nice beach but still plenty to do look at kata and karon still easy access to patong and shopping from here.
patong is better place to stay and happening wit night life.this place you can get everything you need .try to get hotel near by bangla road area .all depends about your budget ,if you want try to stay at aloha hotel just offside of bangla road and another hotel is royal paradise .food wise dont worried.... you just crost from the aloha hotel and you find thai and westrn food but the shop is not very huge but simple and nice food.
Thanks to all who replied, this has helped me a lot, now to choosing hotels etc, because it is my 25th wedding anniversary looking at a good 4 star of 5 star if good prices. Thanks again.
