We've just had an awesome family holiday at Club Med Phuket.
Hotel & rooms:
Everything is kept very well maintained. The gardens are beautiful. Swimming pools are clean. Rooms are lovely and comfortable and clean. I was impressed with their maintenance team. I phoned twice (once to replace a globe, and once to retrieve a lost earring from the washbasin) and every time they arrived within minutes.
We never left our children at the kids club because we really wanted to spend time together as a family. But despite that they had a ball of a time. They cater specifically for children foodwise and drinkwise - it was very exciting for my children to be able to order at the bar "cocktails" like Spiderman etc. The staff was so friendly with them and always helping them eg if they couldnt reach something. And they loved the evening shows! I also appreciated the baby room where I could wash and sterilise the baby's bottles.
Wow! So much variety and everything is very tasteful. The fact that they cater for late breakfast and late lunch really impressed me - it means that you can plan other excursions or sleep in and still enjoy breakfast or lunch at the hotel.
The only gripe that I've had is that they switch off (on a timer) the aircons in the restaurant in the mornings half hour before breakfast closes. And then you could die in there with the heat. Not a pleasure at all to enjoy breakfast like that. I spoke to several staff members about it - including 2 managers - but they just kept telling me that it is a time switch. No one actually took it further and resolved the issue. In my mind I can't understand that they offer breakfast until 11:00 but then they switch off the aircons way before then. This was really the only thing that irritated me during our stay.
We had a great time and I can definitely recommend this holiday to others.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- In Kata Bay, the Club Med Village on the island of Phuket stretches out under palm trees caressed by the breeze. Bungalows, built in the style of the local "long-houses" and decorated with teak, silk and marble, exude a Zen spirit in this idyllic garden where you can practice yoga beneath the frangipani trees. A warm and clear sea opens up its underwater depths, filled with colorful fish and abundant flora. Adults and children alike can find tranquility and discover the Thai culture. ... more less
