“Very good budget hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

The bedrooms are spacious with a bath and shower, bedding changed every day. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a ground floor room so easy access to have a dip in the poolwhich was great. I'll be coming back nex year.

The only negative is that the breakfast is the same every day (we stayed 6 days) but having daid that it was still good.

Stayed first 2 weeks of June. Hotel rooms were big and clean, and had a bath which lot of small hotels there do not, so have no negative comments to make. I had ground floor room so balcony was at poolside. Could not get used to the pool, it was about 6 foot wide and ran the whole length of the front of the hotel building. Strange sitting on the balcony and watch people swim pass. Negative point for me is the breakfast, same everyday and fried eggs were like bullets. Breakfast was up to 10.30, but one day they were clearing away at 9.30, and no hot food left, had to ask them to get some. I would reserve judgement on this part as it may be different in high season, and then there may be a better choice of food on offer.

Great Budget hotel, very friendly staff with large comfortable very clean rooms. Bedding and towels changed everyday, although the bedding is probably due for replacement, it was clean. The pool is big enough for swimming although not quite so when full of children and the 10/12 poolside beds were adequate for low season but I suspect a bit of a bun fight takes place in high season. Breakfast buffet was the same everyday but still more than adequate and whilst no tea/coffee provided in the room, free water and cups and hot water flask were available.

Plenty of building work still going on next door and around so be prepared for early wake up calls. That said the lovely KATA beach is only 6/7 minutes walk through the short cut. Free beach/pool towel loan available from hotel. Quite surprised by the charge for Wifi when everywhere is mainly free, but.... lots of shops, cafes, bars around. 7-11 on the corner too.

Generally, Kata is one of the nicest beaches and quieter areas so all in all recommended for a budget trip.

Room Tip: If you can get a ground floor poolside room for the same price, all well and good, but not sure it w...

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

A year has passed since our last review of this hotel. All I can say this time is that we like it better and better. We have now booked for 6 weeks next year at a very priceworthy price. We cannot wait to come back. I have read reviews from others complaining about everything from mosqitos to smell. Don't listen to them. I have a fobi for insects, so normally we stay in very expensive places, thinking that the more expensive, the less chance for insects. We have seen one mosqito in our room in all the weeks we spent there, and then we had our balcony door open in the evening. But of course, we never have food in our room except in the fridge, and never eat fruits in the room. We know from experience that the more you drop of sweet fruitjuices on the floor, the easier you can get visits from ants, so therefore we never do. And if we have roomservice, we make sure we don't drop leftovers anywhere, and always take the tray out afterwards. We stayed 4 weeks this time and never saw an ant. The only thing I don't like is the fact that you must put toiletpaper in a bin and not in the toilet, but we know from before that this is the case in also many 5 star hotels in Phuket. We have everything we need in this hotel for a reasonable price. The staff is absolutely fantastic! Beautiful people that I look forward to meet next year. It is a good sign for a hotel when they are able to keep the same staff year after year. This means that the management is good! Thank you to Honey resort for our 4 beautiful weeks.

I stayed in this hotel 10th-14th Jan 2014.
The staff were incredibly helpful and I had my room upgraded to the delux pool access room.
The room was lovely, huge king sized bed, my balcony doors opened into the pool. Lovely bathroom, great room service and the breakfast had lots of choice.
The pool was lovely and quiet and the hotel was only 5 minutes walk to the beach.

The issue I had is that I was in room 1, this was right next to the hotel which is being built next door. It was far too noisey to sit by the pool due to the constant banging and I was woken up at 8am with the building noise.

The cut through to the beach goes past a smelly beck, but its not too bad, hold your breath. The beach is lovely,much better than Patong. There is a stand which does delicious fruit shakes and lots of places to eat.

Perfect room, hotel and location but so noisey.

Room Tip: Pool access rooms are amazing!

We stayed at Honey Resort for the month we were in Kata. It was wonderful. The breakfast everyday was full of variety and we never tired of it. The location to Kata beach was excellent (less than 10 minutes) and the walk to Karon beach was easy too, if you wanted to go there--although we liked Kata better (the waves seemed calmer than the days we tried Karon beach).

The staff at Honey Resort were so helpful and friendly--from the front desk to the restaurant to the housekeeping staff. All pleasant, gracious and helpful.

The room was clean and spacious. We were given bottles of water everyday and the beach towels were great too.

We loved our time in Kata and would go back to the Honey Resort when we go back to Phuket.

Very clean and well furnished rooms. Pool is small, but who needs it if great beach is only in 10 minutes of walking. Interior is fresh. Buthroom is perfect. Best value for money. I was staying last year in Kata Palm 4 stars and price for Kata Palm was 3 times more expensive than Honey, but no difference at all. Only the pool is smaller here. Perfect wifi connection in the rooms. Better than in 5 star Hotel in Bangkok. Very quiet. Strongly recommend.
