Looking at other reviews I think they are pretty much bang on for this place. The staff are lovely we had July from the Philippines in the restaurant who is very sweet and try's hard to help get you in to the quiet restaurant. And olesia on the front desk, who is from Russia and she is great, very efficient and prompt and very nice.
The hotel is nice, the gym yes looks like an after thought I agree but if your there a few days it does what you want, if your in to real fitness you have a mountain and scorching heats , use that.
The pool is awesome, no other way to describe it really, it's warm, catches the sun all day and it was very quiet when we were there.
The room we got 8101 was the deluxe room and was beautiful, spacious and clean. On the balcony I got a sunbed I used 1 day and a jacuzzi I used for 5 minutes, and my advice is get a room without the jacuzzi as when I filled it which took 2 hours there was plenty ants kicking about. My fault really I don't know what I expected to see in the mountains of thailand!???
The location is good as it's very quiet, we travelled all over phuket and when you just need a couple days to relax this place is great. You can get to kata beach in 5 minutes and patong in 15 if you want the hustle and bustle.
The key to this hotel is the staff they are a credit to it
