Reviewed 30 May 2014

Quite good hotel. Location is very good, middle of Karon and Kata beach and many restaurants. We stayed in low season and thatswhy it was very peaceful hotel, only lot of mosquitos in lobby. Pool area is very nice, we could use also sisterhotels pools.

My wife and I stayed for 2 weeks in April 2014 – overall we were really happy with our room but the hotel very noisy with building work next to pool during the day, the second pool was filthy and the hotel was at the top of a very steep hill.

Positives: Our room was very big, lovely big bathroom/wetroom and kept very clean for us.

The location of the hotel was great, right between 2 lovely beaches and loads of restaurants and bars within easy reach although getting to and from the hotel required a lot of effort in the searing heat due to it's location at the top of a very steep hill.

Negatives: There was a building site right next to the main pool with drilling and banging all day long every day so it was not possible to relax by any of the the pools.

There was a second smaller pool but this was filthy, the water was really murky and full of hair and leaves, obviously hadn’t been cleaned for a long time, really not pleasant.

The communal areas especially the reception was swarming with mosquitos which they never seemed to spray for, they had lots of pools of water standing around which seemed to attract clouds of them, especially in the evenings. We did have to ask for our room to be sprayed a few times which they did for us.

To reach the hotel you had to walk up a very, very steep hill, they did have some golf buggies to take you up and down but these were not always available.

The food at breakfast was a bit limited in range and was exactly the same every day, got very tedious after 2 weeks. We noticed towards the end of our stay that people were being given bacon but this was not on the buffet – you had to ask for it to be cooked specially.

The restaurants were generally very poor offering very limited menus and what was available was of a very low standard. There are plenty of restaurants located nearby, but it does mean that you have to go walkabouts even if you are taking a day off from the hustle and bustle and staying poolside.

Overall I would not recommend this hotel.

We had a very warm welcome, on arrival at the hotel, everything explained but we were surprised that there were only 5 or 6 other British guests. The reception staff were delightful & extremely helpful at all times, even when Russian guests shouted at them (how awful was that).

The Thomson rep had arranged to meet us next day & wisely suggested that the only excursion which might be of interest was the ‘James Bond Island’ boat trip. Booking a very similar trip with a local company was MUCH cheaper (2,800 Baht or about £55 for 2)– it was very good but involved nearly 5 hrs travel, by mini bus, to get to & from the boat.

Having booked a ‘Tour & Stay’ holiday with Thomson, we had to stay at this hotel for 6nts after our 7 day tour of northern Thailand. Thinking the hotel might be a bit remote, being between Kata & Karon beaches, we opted for HB at £12 a night! This was a big mistake as there were lots of restaurants nearby & they were MUCH cheaper than the hotel. Having paid for the hotel dinner, we felt obliged to eat there. Other guests wisely opted to eat elsewhere so we were usually almost on our own in the dining room; fortunately the food was good, although the wine was far too expensive to buy. Our only consolation was that we use our voucher for dinner at the Peach Hill hotel restaurant or Peach restaurant, on the main road – only the one on the latter had any atmosphere & other guests.

As breakfast was part of everyone’s deal, this was well attended and food was varied & good. There was always someone to cooking fresh eggs, pancakes and/or omelettes.
Our room was large & lovely with kettle, TV with many channels, fridge & balcony – the shower was in a wet room with bath at the end. Our balcony overlooked the back so not scenic, better to have a pool facing room.
The hill approaching the hotel was steep but rarely a problem as there normally a member of staff with golf buggy to get us back up the hill; going down was no problem.

There was free Wifi in reception, so that was busy on most evenings but had limited seating. The only bar was by the pool & restaurant, great by day but empty in the evenings. I feel that a bar nearer reception might have attracted more hotel customers.

Room Tip: High level overlooking the pool

We had 8 nights here in April 2014. We actually booked the villa jacuzzi at the sister property Peach Hill Resort but got upgraded to the pool villa at Peach Blossom. Absolutely amazing room, we were definitely well looked after. The hills are killers but they offer free golf buggy pick up /drop off! The breakfast is average and coffee terrible, so we often had our breakfast out in Kata. ALL the staff though were brilliant and after staying in Karon at a resort with not one pleasant staff member, this was really important to us! Location is perfect, we would definitely stay here again next trip to Phuket.

We were two grandparents, two children and one baby and three parents. We had three rooms. Excellent value for money albeit a little tired. You need to be fit as the hotel is at the top if a very steep hill. A walk of about 7 minutes but they do provide a golf buggy service which was efficient. We only had to walk, because it wasn't available, four times. Food is typically Thai with European choices. The rooms were spacious with great showers. Bath water not good because it was brown.
Pool was terrific with five bar stools in the water. The barman called Rudi was fantastic. Great service from him and his English was excellent which could not be said for most of the staff. However, this is normal in all the local restaurants and shops. The other guests were mostly Russian. We were told over 90%.

Room Tip: Chose a room facing the hilltop Buddha. Floor two ideal as that is the same level as restaurant and...
