Great value for money. Firstly, this is a wonderful location. Not too busy. Not that much to do in the surrounding area if you are looking for a bit more action but everything that you need is here. Restaurants around the hotel are not too pricey (recommend restaurant Sawadee next to hotel). Also next to the hotel is the Phuket Aquarium which is not wonderful but passes a few hours if it is raining. The hotel itself is great value. Breakfast included and has everything you could want. Not luxurious but something to suit all tastes. I am gluten free but it was not all bread, there was rice, potato etc so that was good. The two pool areas are lovely and one is good for doing laps. The whirlpool could be better; at the moment there is only one jet working. Fitness room okay; air con not great so be prepared for a sweaty work out. Has all the basics that you need though. Rooms big and clean. Very big and comfy bed and powerful shower: the two things I value most in a hotel room. Overall, this hotel is not luxury ++; if you want that go to the sister hotel Cape Panwa BUT for much cheaper, you can stay at this place and use the shuttle to the Hotel Cape Panwa to make use of all their facilities inc beach area, spa etc which is all beautiful. No complaints at all and for what you pay, outstanding value.

Stayed in this hotel with my parents and godparents in February 2009. Still have very good memories from our trip.
Hotel was quite large, situated by beach road but our rooms were very quiet. Air condition worked promptly all the time. Rooms were cleaned every day and beds made perfectly. Staff was extra friendly, they had a ironing service and I took some dresses and skirts for them to iron. One of my skirts was wrinkled after they returned clothes to my wardrobe so I asked them to iron it again and they took me with them to see how they ironed the skirt again. No complaints was made of my extra requests, these lovely women were just smiling and friendly for me.
We had breakfast included in our deal and it was excellent. There was all possible hot options you can imagine, fruits, cereals, muesli, yoghurts.. just name it.
There is a big pool on the hotel roof with nice sun beds and towels for hotel visitors.
You can take a short cut through hotel garden up to the hill where is excellent restaurants, including sea food restaurant with excellent view over the sea. Also several massage shops where they are offering you divine thai massage for cheap prize.
Hotel guests may use private beach which belongs to hotel Cape Panwa. Free shuttle bus takes you over the hill to other hotel if you feel it's too hot to walk. Beach is part sand, part grass under palm trees. Wooden comfortable sun beds and again free towels for hotel customers. There is also sort of gondola taking you down to the beach from hotel since it is on quite steep hill.

Room Tip: Garden side rooms with balconies were super wonderful!

I recently stayed for a week, the first of my 3 week holiday. The hotel itself is quite old but is very clean. My room was cleaned spotlessly every morning at the same time while I was having breakfast. The service at breakfast was excellent, on the first morning I asked for some lime for my tea and from then every day after that the lime arrived as soon as I sat down.
The pool on the roof was very good for swimming and most days I was there by myself. My only concern is that I never saw any staff testing the water.
I used the gym which was ok although a little cluttered, no room for stretching.
There certainly were a number of elderly British people staying and I was reminded of the film "The exoctic Marigold hotel"!
Close to the hotel there were a number of restaurants,a money changer and many massage places. I went every day to Sabai massage which was just up the hill on the left, run by a mother and daughter.Fantastic oil massages for 300 baht.
The walk up the hill to the sister hotel only took a few minutes, it was good to get the heart pumping as it is a very steep hill. There is transport regularly for those who don't want to walk.
All up it was a relaxing week with excellent service although not sure I'd go back because I did miss taking long walks on the beach which is not possible at this location.

My partner and I stayed for 3 weeks and enjoyed every minute of it, the apartments was large and clean. As for the staff they were all very friendly and could not do enough nothing was too much for them, they even remembered my birthday which was really nice. And I am so looking forward to going back next year we also got the use of there sister hotel Cape Panwa, the restaurant nearby where all very nice indeed.

Great self catering rooms. Great hotel size and facilities (you can use the sister hotel next door which is 5*). Cape Panwa is quite far out from all the rest if Phuket. You need to use their shuttle which isn't free and the timetable isn't always ideal. Taxis are not cheap to get around. Food isn't cheap either. This is a tourist area.

Service of hotel is strange. The girls in the front reception are always saying hello but at the breakfast restaurant they tend to ignore coloured people. They spend all their efforts on the retired British pensioners who stay there for weeks (sometimes months) at a time.

Not much to do there after 5 days. Gets a bit boring.

But worth it for a week in the sun as long as you bring enough spending money!
