After having a lovely time in Bangkok at the Royal Orchid Sheraton, we spent 3 nights at the Allamanda Laguna Phuket. We were there with our two college age daughters and had two one-bedroom suites. The rooms are quite spacious - very nice for a family - with a large living room and dining area, balcony, kitchen, bedroom and very small bathroom. The Laguna Resort area is very convenient. You can sign for meals at any of the hotels.
The Allamanda itself is tired. Frumpy furnishings, uncomfortable mattress, cramped crummy bathroom (with rancid shampoo), few amenities....there's no real bar area and you have to take a ferry to the beach (which is lovely). You cannot use the beaches in front of the other hotels, although they really all share the same beach. Each hotel has its own color of beach towel, so you'd stand out if you walked down to, say, the Sheraton or Dusit.
I would not return to this hotel.
