I haved stayed at BYD twice; once in November last year, and recently from Songkran till Easter this year.
Stayed in 2 different delux apartments in different buildings. Different layouts but pretty much the same size and fitout. Modern furnishings, a good size, a very comfortable bed and everything that you need. Not a big coffee drinker, but appreciated the coffee machine. No problems with the rooms, and cleaning was up to scratch. Wi-fi was good. Didn't use the pool(s) a lot, but the small pool out the back of the building on my most recent stay was a pleasant place to relax and keep cool when I did not have enough time to go to the beach. Staff were always friendly and pleasant.
Only comment might be the lack of a desk or work space. Although there is a table on the balcony, there was no table space in the apartment itself other than 2 coffee tables. I understand most people on a holiday are happy to use a lap top in bed or on the sofa, however I would have appreciated the option of being able to sit at a desk.
I have stayed in several other hotels in Patong, and have to say overall BYD is the best value option. Although it is not the most central location, it is convenient to get to the beach and most other places. And it is quiet, which I sometimes appreciated.
Most recent stay was on a room only rate and I was picking up something light for breakfast on the way home at night. I am not a big breakfast person. However on prior stay I enjoyed the breakfasts which were to a high standard. I have also eaten at the Bistro for dinner on several occassions and have found the food and wine to be of good quality and excellent value. Also a thumbs up for the service.
On both occassions took adavantage of a free transfer back to the airport, which reduced the stress and was much appreciated.
One other thing I might note is that there are 2 small bottles of water supplied each day. I was staying alone so this was almost adequate (I usually brought some extra water and drinks each day from one of the nearby convenience stores), however for 2 people I think this is insufficient having regard to the fact that the tap water is not for drinking, and we are in a tropical climate. Most hotels in Thailand provide free drinking water; it really is a necessity. It would be good idea if BYD could either supply bigger bottles or perhaps an extra couple of bottles a day.
