“A decent overall value, but the location is not optimal”
Reviewed 22 March 2010

I recommend this hotel on the basis that it was clean, modern, and fairly inexpensive. It also had a nice pool, on-call massage, and a free shuttle/ tuk-tuk to Patong for part of the day. The atmosphere is very quiet and peaceful.

I do not recommend this hotel because of the location. To get to Patong in a timely fashion, you'd need to take a tuk-tuk - otherwise, it is about a 20-30 minute walk. It is also situated next to an empty lot (what is not shown behind the building on the right on the main picture on their website). Their front desk staff also has mediocre English and can be quite difficult to understand. The beds are also on the extra-extra-firm side.

Thanks to Air Asia who started the new route from Saigon to Phuket, i had my first taste of Phuket. It is beautiful yet commercial and one of the best beach destination in Asia. I had budget restrictions this time due to personal reasons and when i found a great deal on wotif.com called WOT SO LOW JUST GO, i just booked Phuvaree Resort. It was quite an economical choice and i was not expecting much from the resort. Well, on arrival i found the hotel staff to be quite courteous though English communication is still a problem. The rooms were quite nice around 36 sqm with Swimming pool view and surprisingly their swimming pool is their USP (Unique Selling Point). All the rooms had balcony and bathtub, TV with satellite channels ( Though it will be better if they can have more English channels). The breakfast was included which is a buffet and is served till 11 am which was quite good. The variety and taste was good as well. They only have one restaurant in the hotel but then in Phuket you generally always eat out. We tried some snacks though and found it be quite appealing and tasty. We had some hiccups during the stay though which was mainly due to maintenance problems. The management was quick to react and send fruit basket and also offered late check out on departure. They have a Fitness Center which is quite small and i never saw anyone using it.
Now going to the location, i was surprised that it is just a 5 minute ride by TUK-TUK to Patong Beach and Bangla Road (Party hub in Phuket). It is advisable to get a friendly TUK-TUK guy who can be there for the whole trip. Well, in our case we found a really nice chap whose vehicle is colored Yellow and it's named BAT MOBILE. You will find him on the main Patong Beach.

Overall, my impression of Phuket is that it is a place for wild partying as well as relaxing and please do not miss PhiPhi island ( Yes, the famous beach where the movie " THE BEACH" was filmed). About Phuvaree Resort, a value for money, nice resort. Would love to stay here again.

this hotel is located at the middle of no where tuk tuk or taxi driver need to ask direction to drop me and my friends to the hotel but on the overall trip there is a nice tuk tuk driver waiting in front of the hotel and they know the way back, if u get a tuk tuk from patong beach to the hotel will be a bit tough luck to get back to the hotel , not even lift in the hotel, and expect me to walk up the stairs? it is far away from patong beach, although there is shuttle services but the info of the shuttle service given by the receptionist to me is different compare to the shuttle drive, the different is 40mins???? I could have crawl all my way back to the hotel if i chilled around the pick up point earlier, the morning breakfast to me is just fine not much variety of choices but does satisfied one's hunger, the condition of the room is so poor especially the cleanliness, so sad this hotel is considered 3stars eH? waiting at the lobby was a terrible experience where is it so warm and hordes of mosquito attacking us. if u ask me....i don't really recommend this hotel

Very far from Patong beach. Only few person can speak in English. But these people can barely understand us. Very silent except the new hotel site opposite the hotel. Rooms and pool was clean. But pool was not large and deep enough. Shuttle to Patong beach is not regular! If you ask me, I don't recomend..
