“Sunset Beach Resort Is Awesome”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

Sunset beach resort is awesome; the buffet breakfast had lots of choices, more like a dinner menu. The staff/people were cool and helpful. The pool bar is awesome. Room 5203 was nice and spacious big bath and the shower had good water pressure. Room cleaned daily.
We had a balcony overlooking the pool with a cloths rack for drying swimming gear. The gym outside our room had enough equipment considering we are on holiday.

You can swim at the beach which is across the road, great to watch the ocean while you are eating. The resort food is good and cheap; you can also walk across the road in the evenings and eat local food with the locals.
In-house massage was OK; I think it was a little expensive. There are also 6 other massage places within 5 minutes walk, try them all we did. Full body oil massage cost between $450 - $500 baht.

A free taxi runs every 30 minutes between 9am - 9pm. Lots of local taxis outside the hotel for after hours. $150 - $200 baht to get to and from the night life
Great place to enjoy the sun, take a swim and have a quit beer

Room Tip: Facing the pool. not on the ground floor

Was there for a family vacation and had a great stay.Requested a sea view room and it was more then what I expected.Lovely view from the room.Breakfast was a decent spread and loved the ambience of the open bar cum restaurant at the front.There can be improvement with staff communication.

This Resort is a little out of Patong, which suited us. Although I booked one room,we were upgraded to a 2 bedroom family suite as there were 3 of us. While a little outdated, everything was clean. Great to have a kitchenette and a full sized fridge. The few times we called reception with an issue, this was always attended to promptly. So nice to have the suite cleaned daily. Shuttle bus to Patong was great and if you want to walk it only takes approx. 30 minutes (don't do this in the middle of the day!) While there are no "clothing" shops, there are a couple of 711-type supermarkets, money lenders with competitive rates, pharmacy. Several very good massage places (try the one on the main road seemingly run by a young crowd). We also found a fantastic hairdresser called Hana's in a side alley ($5 for hubby's haircut and $30 for me for foils and cut)

Room Tip: Pick a room in the back section,away from traffic noise. We didn't want a ground floor pool room...

Please, do not go to this hotel, this is my advice is better to give more money and choice an other hotel. it is very darty, insect flying, bad smell inside the room very old fachion tv and the staff are not helpful at all. when you ask them about something they answer thai language as if they don t understand english or what you are saying.
No manager on duty whom you can speak to.
We did an early check out, we left our bags in the reception because our transportation pick up at 4 30 pm. and we went out to do shopping. we bought some other things.
we arrived to the hotel we found the driver waiting for us to go to the airport from phuket to bangkok. we took airport hotel because our flight to our country will be early morning.
when we open our bags we found that all our valuable things not in our bags. it s really shock. they steal my gold ring it was in my hund bag+5 watches 3 rolex and 2 D&G, they took LV bags and Nike sport shoes. they leave for us only tshirts and our clothes all what we bought from their they took it.
We call the hotel immediatly, the receptionist said call tomorrow morning and we will check the camera. when we call the other morning the receptionist said call 1155 and he cut the ligne.
No one there to help or listen i tried to call the tourist police in phuket no one answer.

The hotel is very quiet as it is north of Patong. They offer a free shuttle service to the main strip every 30 minutes until 9 pm. The room is nice and spacious as is the bathroom. I had a balcony as well. The breakfast buffet is plentiful with both western and Thai options. The pool and surrounding area is beautiful and kept clean. You can walk across the street to the beach or even sit at the bar or dining area to get a view of the beach and ocean. It's a great little resort if you want to be away from the noisy dirty Patong area itself.

My son and I stayed at the Sunset Beach Resort from the 12 - 19 July 2014. We had a wonderful time - the room was comfortable, clean and well serviced everyday. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The swimming pool was exactly like the photo and we spent a good few hours relaxing there.

The shuttle into Patong worked like clockwork. The hotel is situated in a quite part of Patong but is close enough to town if you feel like popping across for a shop!

All in all it was a great experience.

Our 2nd visit to this resort. We had 2 rooms on 1st floor overlooking the pool which were clean, spacious and well kept by the friendly and helpful staff. Not much had changed since our last visit, still good value for money. The free transport into Bangla Road is a winner. The only issue we had was the wait for omlettes or fried eggs at breakfast, the serving area is to small with only 1 chef cooking. This needs to be looked at. On the whole a quiet Hotel 2km from the main hub of the Patong town area, close enough to walk home if you miss the last transport. Great place to stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on South side of pool are cooler.
