Diamond Cliff Resort and Spa

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 July 2014

Good stay and family friendly. Choice of 3 pools. We were upgraded to two Ocean View rooms. These were spacious and parents and older kids both happy. Very steep grounds but a courtesy bus was provided. Close to shopping/food at north end of Patong. Because north of the main beach the resort was nice and quiet. Best hotel bed I think I've slept on. Bread was stale at breakfast and there were birds flying in and out of the bread.

Room Tip: higher up the hill the quieter it is I would imagine. Don't eat the bread.

All these massively spread hotels, why they don't understand without service, they cannot stand in Hospitality Industry. Its another hugely laid out hotel, with nice nature around, swimming pools and restaurants, they are good, but staff can be rude and abusive, OH YES, THAT'S WHAT HAPPEN IN THE THERE FAMOUS POOL SIDE RESTAURANT, WHERE IS WAS ALMOST THREATENED BY THE STAFF TO PAY BILL IN CASH, AS HE WAS NOT READY TO LISTEN WHERE I WANTED TO SIGN TO THE ROOM.

Front Lobby staff does try to make an impression, however the rooms are old and need to be renovated, i was staying the mountain suite, which has lot of furniture, but some serious renovation is required. The Concept of fruit basket is nice!

Room Tip: There have many room types, then make sure to inform front lobby what is your preference.

me and my partner went here on holiday for 2 week last September and it was beautiful the double room was always kept clean on a regular bases with a mini fridge which helps a lot for keeping bottles of water cool, there was an onsite fruit shop which was always handy with 2 amazing swimming pools, the only thing is be careful when eating inside the hotel its very expensive compared to the restaurants down bangla road or along the beach. if you want to eat nice proper food over there your looking to pay a bit of money But hey your on holiday treat yourself, there was a lovely restaurant over looking the sea called Joe's which was a 2 minute walk from the hotel., it was in a perfect location being a 10-15 minute walk down to the main strip (bangla road) which is a must see even if your not in to the party scene its an experience. there is taxi in the hotel lobby waiting to take you to town if needs be, because both ways can be a bit of a walk. only problem when leaving the hotel is be very careful as there is not a pavement for about 400 yards and so your walking on the road. inside the hotel they have excursion desk but do not book your excursion through them we learnt our lesson after meeting a couple over there. they charged us £120 to go elephant trekking and white water rafting the couple joined us that day but booked it the night before but down bangla road and only paid £60 ,after that we booked it in independent ones and we had taken there number a swell there completely reliable :). There is a private beach about 15 mins away which is a lovely ride and there is a shuttle bus which leaves from the hotel to take you there and back every hour (from what i can remember) the hotel also provide you with towels. i would suggest to take a rucksack with some food and drinks in (try to be subtle about it) as your not aloud to but they don't check, just the food and drinks can add up if your there all day. xx

Had the feeling that this was going to be a wonderful experience from the moment we walked up to the smiling reception staff, and we were not disappointed. Rooms spacious, well appointed & had the charm of Thailand throughout the complex. Loved being down in the seaside infinity pool , in fact we were lucky enough to have had each pool to ourselves. There is a shuttle to take you up & down the hill to your room every 5 minutes, scheduled times for taxi in the evenings to take you down to Patong central or if you want to go down earlier you can walk or pay 200BHT taxi. In & around Patong that is the going rate per taxi/tuktuk ride. Thoroughly recommend this for relaxaton & rest. Nice romantic feel about the place. Breakfast...oh yes, I would go back just for that!

The staff are very pleasant but:
We have been to the pool every day of our stay, I cannot understand when the hotel is so empty why do we have to chase up staff to serve us at the poolside? The restaurant is just a few feet away but staff cannot be seen.
Ants at the poolside beds are a problem, as they are the little ones that nip you, when I asked for a spray to clean the mattress I was told they had none and that was where the problem was left, we have moved three times I am now questioning the towels!!!!
The rooms are very tired but clean

Firstly let me summarise why I absolutely love this place for the easy viewing of prospective visitors:

1) Great 5-star service
2) 3 swimming pools that are at distinct locations with different views
3) Amazing spread of breakfast buffet
4) Good wifi
5) Food / Cocktails @ resort restaurants / room-service is reasonable and tasty
6) Early check-in, late check-out
7) GORGEOUS ROOM


Alright, now for the more detailed review which will most probably follow the timeline of my trip:

We arrived at Diamond Cliff in the morning around 9am via the free airport pick-up, the staff welcomed us with their million-watt smiles and quickly helped us settle down with the check-in procedures. It was a really hot morning without any breeze, all of us were sweating profusely and a staff came over to serve us some welcome drinks. Chilled guava juice. Sounds simple but IT TASTED AMAZING and it was exactly what our burning bodies were craving for. I feel that it is worth mentioning that I was so in love with their guava juice I was drinking it throughout my stay at Diamond Cliff.
Back to check-in, it was only 9am yet the staff allowed us to check-in immediately (without us asking). The resort compound is humongous, they have a transport to drive you from anywhere in the resort to anywhere in the resort and THE DRIVER WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND NICE. Not those standard customer service where they just smile at you but he remembers visitors, their details such as nationality and will engage in small chats.
We were brought to our room (Diamond Suite) by a staff who did not just showed us to the doorstep, but entered the room to introduce each and every corner of the room to us.
THE ROOM IS AMAZING. Sea and pool view from the balcony & the bathroom. I have to emphasise that BOTH THE SEA AND SWIMMING POOL ARE VISIBLE FROM THE BATHROOM WHICH HAS A JACUZZI BATHTUB. Shower room, bathtub and toilet are separated so there's no problem if someone is urgent while someone else is having a bath.
Gigantic (in my opinion) walk-in wardrobe, very comfortable dining area, good and strong air-condition; it's more than i've expected.
They have 3 swimming pools. A grand pool which is deep within the resort compound, an ocean view pool where the sea is viewable and the dept is 2.7m!!! (Perfect for tall people like me -I'm 174-) and a sea side pool that is located opposite the resort compound, directly at the beach. All of them are not small and the resort staff regularly cleans them.

They have free shuttle services to Phuket town and the other shopping areas, though the given timing, 4 hours was a little bit short for me (someone who likes to shop a lot).

Resort location wise, it is not exactly near to the standard Patong area where a lot of resorts and hotels are squeezed side-by-side like sardines in a can. Which is good for me, as the resort is quiet and you don't get random people walking around your front door like those located right at the Patong shopping area. However, it is walkable from Diamond Cliff to the Patong drinking street or the Jungceylon shopping mall. By tuk-tuk it's about 200THB but if you go via walking, it takes about 30 minutes and along the walk way there are a lot of stores and bars to enjoy.

I will definitely return back to Diamond Cliff the next time I head to Phuket!!
