“Home From Home”
Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

We spent 10 nights here at short notice in March 2014. We had originally planned to spend 14 nights in Krabi but decided after 4 nights that Krabi wasn't for us, so we reviewed our options and gave the Diamond Cliff Resort a call and booked ourselves in there for 10 nights, by doing so, we saved 1200 Bht a night from the best on line price, so well worth doing.
The Diamond Cliff is a fabulous place if you want a comfortable base at the quiet end of Patong Bay. They provide a free minibus every hour into The centre of Patong, but you do need to book up. The going rate for tuk tuks is 200 Baht one way, but it's a lovely walk along the sea front to the hotel so walk your meal off and save yourself a few quid.
We managed to get our favourite (1311) room overlooking the middle pool and the breakfast restaurant, they must have checked their records from our previous stays, which we feel is good service on their part, so kudos to them!
It's so relaxing to stay at the Diamond Cliff, and let's be honest, that's what we want from a holiday, isn't it?
The only thing I would comment is that there were occasions when there were towels laid out on the sunbeds and no one using them for hours on end, maybe the management need to look at this or it could be like the bad old days of racing down at the crack of sparrows and grabbing a sunbed, which would be a real shame.
Anyway, gripe over, the staff here are all lovely, from the receptionists, the pool boys and even our friendly shuttle driver , that drives you up to the higher rooms, remembered us from our previous visits, and they all have lovely smiles.
We were invited to a cocktail party at the lower pool which was great, chatting to the hotel chef and other staff there as we watched the sunset over the sea, complimentary nibbles and cocktails, a great evening.
It's about a 40 minute transfer from Phuket airport, which is about average for Patong Beach hotels.
The rooms come with complimentary slippers, you can keep, they also provide flip flops for use round the pools, hair dryer, free razors, toothbrushes, shampoo, conditioner, shower gel also 2 half ltrs of water a day, kettle and coffee & tea.
The fridge comes with a fully stocked minibar and chocolates.
Good size tv. With 2 movie channels and 2 sports channels. Air con very good and quiet.
All in all, choose The Diamond Cliff and you won't be disappointed.

We stayed at diamond cliff for 15 nights in feb it was our fourth stay . The hotel is still lovely but is in need of a little modernising .we stayed in diamond room which was really nice large bed ,seperate shower and bath over looking the sea .pools are really nice especially the one swim up bar nice cocktails at happy hour.we was invited to a cocktail party at the diamond hut and treated to canapés and cocktails and watched the beautiful sunset . There is a shuttle bus all day taking you to your room and I have to say the drivers were always friendly and polite .we have one grumble the female staff at the top pool were extremely rude my husband ordered food which came with a free smoothie when he asked her where it was she went into one shouting at him in thai ,and then refused to serve us.
Miserable madam .also asked a male member to help me to move a sunbed he reluctantly done it slamming it down .however there was a male member of staff name beginning with m who was really happy and smiling all the time.you don't expect rude staff at a 4star hotel.management really need to speak to some of their staff .food was good but a little pricey . You can book trips at the hotel but are cheaper down the road .its a 15 to 20 minute walk into the bangla road where the entertainment is buzzing used the tiger bar lots as we felt welcomed and a really nice atmosphere .on the whole would stay at this hotel again .

The breakfast buffet is to die for, the rooms are clean and the staff admittedly struggle with English but so what... We are in Thailand and they're lovely people, especially the resort shuttle driver named Nikom he's funny and can assist you with anything

Nice hotel in great location with excellent views of the ocean from our suite. All staff were friendly and polite (although some had problems with their English skills). Front desk, restaurant and housekeeping staff and drivers were all great - outstanding staff member Nikom the driver! Ocean view from suite was great but the room could do with some maintenance (timber floors and furniture worn, walls could do with a paint job). Paint was falling off the walls on balcony. Our room (#2610) had a balcony safety issue and would not be safe for children. Children (and adults for that matter) could walk through a 30 cm gap next to the window near spa and fall to their death. This needs fixing.

When it comes to smoking in Australia, non-smoker are spoiled compared with Thailand. Would be great if the resort could provide some areas around the pool and especially the restaurant (breakfast) where families with children and non-smokers could enjoy the holiday without breathing in deadly cigarette smoke.

Location of the resort is a nice 25 minute walk from the centre of Patong Beach. The first 200m up to the beach promenade are the worst if you are walking. No safe footpath and no traffic rules. Be careful and walk facing the mad traffic.

Overall the resort is great and we had a great holiday.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and book the Ocean View Suite. Great views.

The hotel is located up on a cliff, shuttle service up to your room is very good and always have drivers taking you up and down. The drivers are very friendly,nice hotel staff. Some hotel staff who work in resturants understand very little English which was quite frustrating. I think the staff need to be able to understand and speak some English rather than none at all. The hotel itself is nice but wouldn't stay here again as it is quite far from the main shopping centre. The room was nice but bed VERY UNCOMFORTABLE AND ROCK HARD PILLOWS. I woke up with a sore neck and back everyday. 5 days at this hotel was plenty.

This was our second stay at this hotel and the experience just keeps getting better. The only gripe my wife had was the seafood BBQ that we had by the pool. The prawns and crab was overcooked and she is Thai so I assume she would know....lol. I did feel sorry for the duo they had for entertainment that night as the poor girl sounded like someone was choking a cat.

On our second visit we took our friends from Canada and they thoroughly enjoyed the hotel as did we. I can't imagine how hard it must be to juggle all the rooms with all the assorted travel and booking companies sending people to the resort but in the hotel is a gem of a front desk Manager. I can't remember her name but she is a very pretty woman with short hair and at the time of our last visit had a problem with her left eye, poor baby.

We arrived and the room we had reserved was not available due to booking issues but this little lady took great care of us and we could not have been happier with the room in which we stayed.

The Diamond Cliff is one of the only hotels in Patong that actually lives up to its 5 star rating. The wife and I either stay at the Cliff or at the Senses, both of which we consider our second home.

The breakfast buffet is incredible and the staff very friendly as per Thai tradition so don't be afraid to book with the breakfast included in the room price.

If this will be your first trip to Thailand or Patong, seriously consider the Diamond Cliff it will not be a regrettable experience.

Room Tip: Make sure if you book and ocean view room it is on a high floor so that you can see the incredible s...

The resort is bang across the beach and the hotel room offers a great view of the majestic India ocean. The rooms are clean and nice. The staff is prompt and courteous. The pool and the spa area offers a splendid view of the mountains and have great sunlight. It can well be a couples, friends or a family hangout area.

Try to get an upgrade, it was the first time for me and they upgraded to a junior suite!! :-)

Room Tip: Try to get an upgrade.
