Just completed a 4 day stay at Marriott's Phuket Beach Club. This is a large property which incorporates accommodation for both the Marriott vacation Club Asia Pacific and guests at the JW Marriott Hotel. We stayed in a two bedroom villa which was very well equipped and although some of the furnishings are starting to show some wear and tear they are very spacious, well equipped and kept very clean.
The hotel provides a large range of daily activities to keep guests of all ages occupied. Some of these are free while others incur additional costs. The complex has 3 swimming pools and a very well equipped gymnasium and sauna in the health club. The pools are probably a one minute walk to Mai Khao Beach, which is undeveloped and often deserted, but provides a great opportunity to enjoy the beach without crowds. During the time I was there, a rogue crocodile had been seen swimming in the area around Mai Khao beach so guests were advised not to enter the sea and the beach was red flagged. Even so, most people, myself included, continued to swim or play around in the sea despite the warnings.
Due to the size of the resort, and the large number of rooms and accommodation blocks it is easy to get lost when wandering around and i would advise against exploring after dark (which I did on the first night), as this will virtually guarantee you'll get lost.
This was my first time staying in the hotel (having stayed previously at Marriott Mai Khao beach) and the quality of service and accommodation is top notch and can't be faulted, but there are is a growing number of newer hotels in the Mai Khao area now and this can lead to the feeling that the accommodation, while very comfortable, is starting to show its age and look a little worn in places.
Despite this, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone wanting to get away from it all and enjoy a quality, relaxing break in Phuket.
