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.

Room Tip: Not worth paying for a pool room, so loud. Just go to the beach and hire a beach chair for 100 Baht...

we spent two weeks in phuket island and stayed at this hotel because of recommendation from our Boss who were here last year. It was indeed a great place to stay . Samll but cosy with warm welcome and attentive staffs. Our room was located by the poolside with have an access from our balcony.It was very convenient to swim and have drink at the poolbar. Fintness centre is fully equipped with standard machines. Hotel itself located on the quiet side of Patong which was good for our liking as we are not teenager anymore and we only need some peaceful and clean place to stay and have had good food and sightseeing tour. Breakfast was enough for us even though it was not a long buffet line but it suit their purposes. full facilites provided as a four star property. Moreover, it's value for money as well. In general, this place is good for us and we fell in love with it...would recommend

Room Tip: room on the ground floor adj.to the pool

It is a VERY NICE AND QUIET HOTEL
We were outside all the day taking day tours. Although I was outside most of the time my impression is that the hotel is well kept with very large rooms and bathrooms, also there is cute oriental Niche with mattress, pillows and Candles.
The pool is great fun and the Fitness Room is fully equipped.
The location in the northern end of the two main roads ensures that everything is near
( laundry at the back of the hotel, 7/11 stores and massage places next to the hotel ) but still is a quiet Area.

I enjoyed my staying at this hotel as rooms are big and clean and some of the staff was really nice to us.

There were though a few things that spoiled my staying a bit:

1. They tried to oblige us to have the new years eve dinner at the hotel (for the price of 5.000 baht), claiming that it was an obligation stated when we booked online. It wasn't written anywhere and we really had to argue hard with the
lady at the reception in order to avoid to pay that huge amount of money
2. Breakfast is ok but really overpriced (650 baht pp, if not included in room rate). So we did it the first day and then never again.
3. Mini bar prices are crazy! Now I don't remember the exact cost, but a bottle of Evian was like 4-5 euro. Not to mention peanuts and so on.
4. The hotel is on a very busy street so make sure to get a room with pool view so it is not directly on the street.
5. Pool is almost all the times in the shadow (not that you need a pool in Thailand, but just so you know that you won't use it at all)

I don't think I would go back

Phuket is always our winter retreat but only this year we were in Patong Beach (we are normally stay in Karon Beach). Anyway, never felt sorry as this hotel located near the Beach on the quiet corner with many restaurants, convenient stores around the hotel. Hotel itself is not a big & sophisticated one but we like it. it felt relax and can be ourself with large swimming pool & hugh room with our own balcony. breakfast was included in our room price, it's a buffet style.It's not a big buffet line but enough to serve the purpose with eggs dishes made to your liking. service was great, all staffs smile to us when we meet , English was widely spoken but you have to speak a little bit slowly. They have an internet café for you to use computer, we used that as well as we forgot our gear. it was rather slow signal. At night, we strolled along the Beachside, it was great with cool breeze....Patong has more activities & action than Karon ...next time we will definitely come back to Patong and stay at this place again. Highly recommend

Room Tip: If you are not smoking, pls request non-smoking room which is located on the top floor

we were on our honeymoon during new years celebration. Our travel consultant recommended this hotel because it's suit our needs: location, price & environment. when we arrived it was early but reception was kind to allocate room for us as we were on honeymoon.This made us felt at home with warm smuile, attentive & welcome manners from porters, reception,maid included waitresses. the room we had was on 3rd floor facing the pool on the westside.It's great because we can sit back on the balcony and enjoyed the afternoon sunbath. breakfast was delicious, it 's a buffet style with eggs made to order. hot dishes change daily (we stayed for a week). Drink by the pool was rather pricy (Hotel price) but we had a wonderful tme drinking,swimming, etc. Hotel is near the Beach just across the street. opoosite the hotel, there are several restaurants, money changers, etc. very convenient to go anywhere withn all the public transportation available and hotel also provided shuttle to the biggest shopping complex in Patong called Jungceylon. we spent 2-3 hours there unnoticed. on new year eve, we were attended the Gala as we knew beforehand by our travel consultant that all hotel in Phuket arranged this Dinner as compulsory. Anyway, even though we would like to be on our own but we had chosen this peruiod so we had tom bear the consequences. But it turned out to be perfect, the food were fresh seafood with big phuket lobsters, cram, oyster,etc, Japanese dishes like sushi, sashimi with alaskan king crabs, chinese one like peking duck, suckling poig and other western delights plus many shows and draw prizes and on countdown, the whole beach were brighten full of light from firework and lighted ballon lantern. we ordered champagne for our self and enjoy until around 01.00 am. all in all, the whole week was a memorable one for us and we never regret it. Surely we will return for our anniversary

This hotel is on the end of one of the busiest streets in Patong. It is directly across the street from the Patong Beach. Once you walk inside you walk away from the crazy business on the streets. The traffic is really bad and crossing the street can be dangerous. The hotel was clean, the pool was quiet and lovely. We had room #105 and it was on the ground level with a door opening up to our small patio leading directly into the shallow pool. The reason I did not give this hotel a 5 is because it felt very much like I was being "nickel and dimed". I was "threatened" upon check in that if I lost one of the 2 keys (typical plastic card key) it would be a $30.00 charge. In addition, breakfast was a buffet which was $23.00 per person. It was difficult to find a place for breakfast (the patisserie on site does not open until later in the day - if you plan ahead you can get a croissant the night before). Lunch and dinner prices were definitely reasonable. My teenage son and I arrived on Dec. 31st and we were informed that there was a compulsory gala event taking place that night I would be charged $300. This did not include alcohol. I would return to this hotel, but would be more likely to visit a different beach altogether... like Karon.
