I will give you the good first. The staff are lovely, reception and tour woman, and guards are awesome. The rooms are clean, they have mattress toppers if you want a softer bed. Aircon is good, you have a bar fridge, bathroom huge, all rooms have balcony and are quite spacious. Some face the pool, others face the busy road and while they are noisy with the traffic as you are at a major intersection, they do have a lovely view of ocean during the day. The hotel is clean, the pool is lovely, they have a decent gym, internet room and you can get 24 hour room service or go to the restuaraunt. You have movie chanells and the beach is just over the road.
Now the bad. . The walls are paper thin, I slept with earplugs due to people partying till 3am. The pool is so noisy all day, the pumps, I am not fussy, they are noisy. the room service is pretty yuck, slow and then cold. The TV choice is very average and the net can be slow but I dont really care about that too much. The pool man was very rude to me. ( I did complain on departure). He kinda seemed to really not like people very much. The biggest thing for me was risking life and limb to cross the road every time you want to go to the shop or to the beach. Honestly, it is very very dangerous. Soooo crazy noisy. You can walk to Bang-la road and big mall but it is a good hot 15 minute walk. They do a shuttle twice a day . ( on the back of a car with seats and no seat belt). I will never return to Phuket. It is very sad to me. So much poverty, drunken idiots, noise noise noise. Rubbish.. It is my 6th trip. Please if you go, go in June ish and go to Karon or Kata beach. Unless you want to party like a twit. If you do I advise you to take care. When you get in a taxi, make sure it is safe, the driver is told not to drive like an idiot and you have a seat belt. Be careful hiring Jet skis, we saw many tourist come undone by these. Never ever hire a motorbike. For the love of god.
