We have just returned from a 7 night stay and couldn't be more relaxed and happy. We arrived at Phuket and were greeted by Mr Nine who was such a delight! He pointed out local attractions and the like on the way to the resort and made us feel very welcome.
Our private pool villa was ready on arrival. I have read a few reviews of the check in process taking some time but we had no issue with this. Staff were very welcoming and friendly.
The private pool room we had was amazing (3102). It was only a few steps away from the main area which was great. The private pool was a great size for a couple especially for the price we paid. I did not find any comparative pool villa resorts for same price and size. The rooms are clean and very large, including the bathroom. The mosquito net over the bed was also handy and daily replenished minibar is great. There is no alcohol included but the minimart is a short walk away. If you want a lot of privacy then these rooms are great. You are able to swim alone and also in the main pool when you want a bit of an atmosphere and a drink by the pool. Might be an idea to wait for a special rate as we did though.
We stayed in monsoon season and expected a lot of insects but did not have a major problem with this, a few large bugs here and there, would definitely recommend having insect repellent though becuase you get bitten and don't even realise.
The buffet breakfast is awesome, our fave meal of the day. They had a great selection of thai and western. The western breakfast was great as you were able to get eggs made to order with fresh fruit available also and everything you would normally have at home. Boy was super helpful. After our first breakfast, he knew our room number; if we needed coffee or not etc he was such a great help and we appreciated it!
The main pool is amazing. Pool access seems like a must. The pool access rooms seem more private than the pool access villas so if privacy is what you like then get a pool access room as it is covered by the trees.
Happy hour was great so don't miss out! It's a good atmosphere and the drinks are cheap. They also let you take drinks back to your room if you don't finish them at the bar. Jacky and Golf were great to have around and were a lot of help and we appreciated their friendly attitude.
We had dinner at the restaurant and we liked it but recommend going onto the main road as it is cheaper.
I tried the spa which I found very relaxing and clean. The price is a bit more than the main road but found the main road not as relaxing as you could here others next to you talking to their masseuse. At the spa you get a private room which helps with the atmosphere and relaxation.
A big thank you to Mr Nine. He was such a wonderful driver and helped us out a lot with the language and site seeing. He definitely made us feel very welcome and we would recommend him as a driver to anyone staying at the resort. He is so great, he is emailing us original Thai recipes which we are grateful for!
We have tried to think of constructive feedback and the only thing we can come up with (which is minor) is that the bills from the pool bar take a while to come out once asked for. Our longest wait for the bill would have been approx. 15mins. It wasn't much of an issue for us but we could see others were a little annoyed about it. Room service is also great but did also find the plates sat outside for longer than necessary.
The buggy service to the main road is such a help! It is not that far to walk but in the heat can make it hard. The staff on the taxi service are so great and are always smiling, they are some what of a highlight!
Overall, we had such a very wonderful stay at the Metadee and could not recommend it enough. We will definitely be returning and could not thank everyone there more for our great experience.
