Stayed here with my family, check-in was a bit delayed but that is because we arrived early and was balanced out by an hour late check-out (1pm).Staff was friendly and helpful, pool and jacuzi is ample, there were so many guests stayed there, but you can never find the pool crowded. There is no life guard at the pool, but the depth (1.2 meters) is a real peace of mind for parents. Pool towels and umbrellas are given complimentary at the reception area, the best part is that you can get as many towels as you want, not only just for the pool but you can take them to the beach as well, and not to forget the umbrellas as rain showers can arrive on a short notice.
The hotel's location is just great for families with young children especially. You can go to the most noisiest part of Patong beach in just 10 minutes, yet one can have a peaceful sleep at night after a tiring day visiting different attractions. It has all the basic choices in breakfast which is free and included in the price, wifi worked flawlessly. One can walk to the Patong beach at a leisurely pace in about 2 minutes, there's a cafe, fruit stall, and 7/11 right next to the hotel. Eateries, tour agents, and shops start when you take the left turn to the main happening "Thaviwong Road" (Patong Beach Road). Families with young children please bear in mind that if you want to try different restaurants every time you go out, the walking time could range between 2-20 minutes (one way). However, you can hire a cab or a tuk tuk easily when you just step out of the hotel.
To summarize, this should be the first choice of stay at Patong beach for families on a budget.
