Stayed for 3 nights and enjoyed the comfortable rooms and beds. Our room has a nice balcony overlooking the sea.
Breakfast has a good spread and service was good. Hotel wifi was decent for us throughout the hotel and throughout our stay.
Things to note:
Quite a lot of stairs and we changed 2 lifts to reach our room at block 7.
Transport at Phuket is expensive. This resort is not near to the shopping malls, so its quieter, but a taxi to the beach or shopping mall can cost you 200-300 baht one way. So we were reliant on the hotel shuttle. But the 1st shuttle service only starts at 11am.
So if there is one thing we hope could be improved, we wish the hotel shuttle service could start earlier like 930am or so. Guess that is the time we would like to leave the hotel to explore phuket.
On our last day, we were looking to save some money by hiring an airport shuttle service at 180baht per person, from the many tour agencies in the town. Unfortunately, according to 1 stall we visited, this hotel has some "Mafia" taxi drivers stationed, so the bus companies do not go there to pick up people, and so we were not able to get any airport shuttle service to pick us from this hotel to airport. Could only book a private car (taxi) to the airport with the tour agent
