Mission Hills Phuket Golf Club Resort & Spa

Reviewed 8 April 2013

Spent 3 days here. It's ok if all you're after is golf.. The golf course is just one 18-hole golf course. Pretty good golf course. Booked a promotion with 2 nights' stay and 2 golf games. But what wasn't initially apparent was the additional fees for buggy and caddy which worked out to about 1000baht more per game. So some hidden charges here and there. Breakfast was above average and fairly good. Not a wide spread but sufficient. Taste was a little too salty for my liking.

The location is very near the Airport. So travel to the Patong beach is about 45mins to an hour. So not ideal if you're looking to see the tourists spots. There's a free shuttle everyday, otherwise its about 1000baht each way. Works well if you're in a bigger group.

It was pretty quiet with very few guests. Rooms were a showing signs of wear, with my shower unable to drain water quick enough. Soon you were in a pond of shower water.

Didn't try the Spa but my other friends enjoyed it a lot.

Overall, like I said in the beginning. It's ok. But not extraordinary in anyway.

3 days here is enough to form an opinion - the pro shop staff and caddies are spot on, good knowledge and good English, they couldn't have been better.
The rest of the resort is another thing - the front office staff are only sometimes able to understand basic English requests or questions, and if they hope to attract other than Thai guests and golfers they need to improve this failure. They don't even understand the details of the Hotel Guide in the room.
The swimming pool is shabby, the pool bar hasn't been used in a long time, the "jacuzzis" don't function, and there are many loose bricks and tiles falling into the pool.
The restuarant staff are sweet but shambolic, they disappear without reason which is very frustrating, they don't inderstand the Drinks menu, and bring the totally wrong item, so why print it in English if only the customers can read it?

This looks like it has been a good place which has lost its lustre but in order to attract guests other than Thais they need to upgrade the staffmembers' English skills and attend to the basics.

Returned to the resort and golf course after two years. Whilst the experience in the hotel has always been good we felt last time that the golf course was not at its best. Well we were very pleased to see that it was on our return this time. So an all round very positive experience. We visited the spa which was very good and found the golf course and caddie's to be very good and back up to standard. So if you are one of those who have stayed away, give it another try and do partake in an after golf massage.

Room Tip: We have stayed in the past and found the rooms to be very good too.

The beautiful pool has been losing its splendor and is in need of some repairs. The pool-bar hasn't been used for a while it seems and the food is overpriced. The waitresses are sweet though and we only stayed for 1 night.
If you love to golf this is probably heaven?!

This place is 15 mins from Phuket airport and hence quite convenient after a long flight from UK. Good welcome at reception. The resort looked nice. Room was spacious and cleanish, mind you its shower only.

The breakfast was far from average, they could do with a bit of variety. Pool was great especially after a hot day on the course. The gym is very basic. The bar is ok and service could be better. Dinner is good Thai food, although we had it only once of the 7 days, as there is lots more to eat out. We found the resort "dead" in the evening and had to travel elsewhere just to see some life and taxis were charged per journey up to 1000 baht. There is a beach 10 mins by taxi nearby with couple of good places to eat but no clubs, etc. Elsewhere, nite life is very 'touristy' in Patong and Phuket town.

Golf was great. The 2nd and 5th hole has a shared island green and has a low very low stroke index. Good views although some holes were being refurbished. Bunkers need some maintenance. The caddies were good. Pro-shop is well stocked. The driving range is excellent.

Anchan and Noina were attentive to our needs and managed our stay well. 'Boy', the cab driver speaks good english and has excellent local knowledge. We had an excellent time and value for money with the golf. Hope the nite life could be better.

Room Tip: Rooms viewing the golf course are better

From the moment of our arrival to our departure the staff of this property were courteous helpful and thoroughly professional. Every detail has been thought through and all the staff seem to work in sync..much like a well coordinated ballet. The place runs like a well oiled machine- everything in its place! "A fine team " is a very big compliment and that's what I'd like to say about the people who make this happen here!

Room Tip: I would go with the rooms overlooking the golf course any day.. that's what all guests come ther...

15 mins from Phuket airport. Good welcome at reception. The resort looked nice. Room was spacious and cleanish. Wardrobes and draws were dusty and could have done with a clean. Breakfast service was average, staff had to be advised on what to do and variety of food was average. Pool was great however the pool bar was unmanned and again had to ask for service. Golf was great good views although some holes were being refurbished. Bunkers weren't raked after use and most were poorly maintained. Caddies had to be paid 400 baht which we weren't aware off at the time of booking. We found the resort "dead" in the evening and had to travel elsewhere just to see some life and taxis were charged per journey up to 1000 baht.
So all in all I would say average could have been a lot better, management need to read some of the reviews on trip advisor and improve thir golf maintainence, service and nightlife.

Room Tip: Chose pool view
