“Serenity, friendliness, honesty and charming hosts, it has it all”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2011

A place to return to at every opportunity. The rooms are modern and spotlessly clean. Friendly gestures of flower petals on beds and at the entrance every day added to the charm and welcoming. The gardens are lush and the footpaths free of mildew reported by a previous reviewer. The deep pool is well maintained and vacuumed, the water crystal clear (but no umbrellas). The owners and staff are helpful and make every effort to please For those who have different experiences we can only counsel that anywhere in Asia it is not what you ask but how you ask it. To the gentleman who lost his ipod he might first acknowledge that he lost in and then that other guests might have been less honest than the staff to whom he points his finger by implication. Jumping to conclusions of that nature is to say the least unfortunate We forever left our room unlocked with cameras, cell phones and cash exposed. On one occasion returning from Phi Phi a mislaid 100 Baht (USD 3.00) note was placed on our dressing table awaiting our return. Across the road the hotel has a spa, sauna with massage, fragrant oils and a second pool. All are in immaculate condition and we left with a sense of well being rarely experienced. All that for aro. USD 25-30 / night. We shall return to revist our newly found friends in July..

Oh yes, the bread and coffee is just great... little things mean a lot

Stayed at Floraville all of january 2011 while training at Tiger Muay Thai.

The rooms are nice and spotless clean.
Staff is really friendly and helpfull and the restaurant offers good food at decent prices.

On the minus side, the pool is not very well maintained and the room rates are rather high.
Never the less, I dont hesitate in recommending the place to others.

So, my trip starts off poorly with my iPhone going missing upon arrival at Floraville. When I inquired about it, not only did they not care, the lady said "Maybe you left it on plane"... I had it with me upon entering Floraville, and it was gone within the first day of them taking care of my bags while I went to shop.

Bed bugs. Oh yeah, Floraville has them. My first and second night sleep were terrible. The bed is hard and awful, and I kept itching... Turns out I had bed bugs... When I told them about it, they again didn't seem like they cared... One of the lady laughed as I told her, and trust me I wasn't speaking in a funny tone.

The pool isn't well maintained, the restaurant food is crap. And at the restaurant they act like they don't even want your business. A protein shake here is one of the most expensive at 100 baht and I asked for it without ice... The lady goes ahead and brings me half a glass of protein shake... Meaning, normally she would have added mostly ice and some milk... Greeat service...

Tons of other options, too bad I stupidly signed up here for a month (NO REFUNDS)... Or I'd have stayed in one of the other options...

Stay away.. seriously. I'm going to have to burn all my clothes after this trip, god damn bed bugs.

I first reviewed these villas 18 months ago. I have just returned for a repeat visit and was dismayed to find that the property has gone downhill surprisingly rapidly. Gone are the pool side umbrellas. The external paths and walls were covered in mildew. A pump was just left abandoned by the side of the pool. The gardens and lawns were untended. The towels were threadbare and smelt as soon as damp. The spa had been closed and converted to accomodation. Worst of all the restaurant food was awful!

As you drive around Phuket, you find dozens of these "villa-style" hotels. They typically advertise their rooms on a weekly or monthly basis. The price of Floraville has gone up commensurate with the decline in standard.

A few doors down the road is Cocoville. This is a similar concept, but here the pool is beautifully maintained, the gardens manicured, and the rooms fitted with imported ceramic tiles, tea and coffee making facilities. Also, the entire property is key-controlled entry at night. It has far more charm and ambience than Floraville and.... the price is similar.

If you are training at Tiger or Dragon, stay at Cocoville, not Floraville... that's my advice.

This is a great place to stay whilst you are training at Tiger Muay Thai camp, or other camps in the area. Its only 100m (about 1 min walk) from Tiger.

The bungalow are large by comparson with others nearby and have a nice lounge area with large sofa, cable TV and a nice bedroom - both bedroom and lounge have separate and modern aircon. Rooms were spotlessly clean when I arrived and are serviced every day with fresh towel daily and sheets changed 2-3 times a week.

There is a small kitchen work surface with a fridge and sink, but no appliances - they could probably do with a kettle or microwave. Good wifi internet too.

There is a great pool, not massive, but really nice after a hard days training. Nice restaurant with good food, although a few baht more expensive than others around - but not by much.

In terms of booking I'd try and book direct with them rather than through Tiger as I had a massive discount on the rate offered through Tiger although it was low season when I arrived and the place was pretty quiet - but I'm pretty sure if you pay cash and go direct you'll get a much much cheaper rate.
