As far as hotels are concerned this was ok. On a hill but the regular shuttle bus made it not a disadvantage. Perfectly situated walking distance for Patong but really for me Patong is a day visit at best not a resort location. Stayed at Nai Yang and Cape Panwa and think these are better locations unless you want the crazy mental nightlife of Bangalore road or hassled by every taxi driver or market stall vendor. Good pools, no one there even the restaurants were empty. If you do go there recommend turn right out of hotel and check out restaurants that way instead.
