After searching numerous web sites and reviews we chose to stay at this hotel for 10 nights and it exceeded our expectations. It was great value for money with an excellent breakfast all included for less than NZ$48 per night. Clearly we are from New Zealand.
I had poached eggs and steamed bacon every morning and they were personally cooked and served to our table - magic.
The rooms were spacious, well designed and kept very clean with ocean views from the private balcony which each room has and overlooked the swimming pools. It had a great super king bed although very firm so we requested a foam layer and that made a huge difference. Our room was on the fourth floor, serviced by a lift, and we were very happy with our room No142 but the bath drain was very slow to drain and tended to build up when showereing and although we requested it to be fixed a number of times they failed to fix the problem. (Only a minor). The ground floor rooms have direct pool access but are not very private.
We checked in at midnight and the staff were very friendly and accommodating, prompt, efficient and professional in every way, our bags were taken up to our room and we were greeted with flowers saying Happy Honeymoon and two beautifully sculptured swans from towels, and we were given free internt for the duration of our stay.
The hotel staff could not do enough for us and we will miss them all.
Becuase the hotel is so small the staff get to know you well - you are not just a number like so many of the larger resorts.
The location of the hotel is perfect, far enough away from the noise of the town centre but only a short 5 min walk to the town centre and numerous restaurants and the beach.
We caught the local bus to Puket Town for 30 baht and had a marvellous time - it took an hour each way and hired a scooter for a day for 250 baht and took it up to the Big Buddah and into the huge shooping mall just outside of Phuket Town and had a lot of fun but you do have to watch the traffic very carefully as it is mad!
We stayed from the 28th October to 8th September as a couple and the weather was perfect and celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary.
A great place to stay and would highly recommend.
