Reviewed 16 October 2006

Not a bad resort although it is getting a little tired? Definite 80's decor. Also very little of the amenities that were advertised existed. This was not the fault of the resort or the staff who were as ever friendly and helpful as the resort was misrepresented by the agent and wholesaler who listed a number of services that simply did not exsist!
We were there in the off season so maybe there was a reason the pool was under repair etc.
Would I stay again probably not although I would still recomend it for the cost consious traveler so long as it is represented as what it is.

Stayed: September 2006

Reviewed 17 September 2006

If you are very allergic to dust like I am do not stay in this hotel. My perfect 3rd wedding anniversary vacation turned into a nightmare on the last week.

For the first few days I was wondering why I was waking up in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep. I was averaging 4 hours of sleep a day then it suprised me that when we got out of the room I felt better. It turns out that the housekeeping department haven't cleaned the air condition filter for months and it was covered with dust. We kept complaining about it to the front desk but because of their very limited grasp of english did not understand the concept of dust. They even explained to us how an air conditioner worked.

So on our very last day in Phuket we booked a room at the boutique hotel Kata Minta just across the street for 800 baht. We also went to Dr. Chusnak at Kata Center to buy medicines and paid 990 baht total.

Aside from the filthy room, there was construction going on in the building during breakfast hours. That was really annoying to hear all the hammering and drilling.

My sister and I stayed here for five days, early Jan 2006 (booked through a NZ travel agent). We liked it - good location (3 minutes to shops, 8 minute walk to beach) and friendly staff (perhaps not as helpful as at other resorts, but OK service-wise).

What we liked best was the pool - great for relaxing by and in - and the small balcony off our room which meant we could sit outside. There was an in-room safe (great), and although the room was not massive, it had two beds and day bed/sofa. We enjoyed the location and two pools (spent 2.5 days hanging there and doing nothing but relaxing and drinking watermelon cocktails and beers!). I would 100% recommend as a cheaper, but good quality, resort.
