My boyfriend and I are headed to Thailand for two weeks in late November. For about 8 days we plan to be in the Phuket/Krabi area. We have never been and feel like we should at least experience the Patong area as we enjoy nightlife but are concerned that we will miss out on much better beaches if we only stay in that area so we were thinking about going to Krabi for several days. Based on the reviews we are considering the Amari Coral for our Patong hotel but had heard that drinks are expensive at the hotel. We are looking for a place with a great pool and decent hotel but are on a budget so I was wondering if anyone had recommendations on good places that deals and a fun pool scene.
Thanks for the help,
