We arrived at this hotel without a reservation but with some correspondence with the hotel via email. When we arrived we asked to see the room, we saw and it was lovely. We paid for two nights, got our keys and realised we had been given another room, of much poorer location and size. We eventually got a refund and... More

Rooms are modern, spacious and with good air conditioning. Location is pretty good and great value for money. The hotel is in a very good location but is on a hill so not much good if you struggle with steep inclines. Kata beach is only a 5 minute walk and Kata Noi beach which is much quieter about a 15...

Just a short walk from the main Kata strip and beach, was recommended this place by the GM of Surf House Phuket. Rooms are comfy, clean and roomy! Aircon is nice and cold! Wifi works well. Location means it is nice and quiet with no disturbance from bars or traffic. They even upgraded me for free when I checked-in so... More

The hotel is on the hill, location is good but access to the hotel is narrow and slope. If you drive by yourself, you need to becarefully drive. Car Park is small so prefer to go to the hotel by taxi or van from the airport. Just walk 2 mins to the beach. Staffs are friendly. Good pool access from... More

I stayed at the Sugar Palm Grand Hillside about two years ago, like my previous stay there hotel was very well maintained. The staff is very attentive, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, the air conditioning works great. The hotel is in a great location right by Kata town, lots of tasty Thai restaurants, shops and walking distance to... More

I stayed in his hotel for 4 nights last year. You can expect friendly and professional English speaking staffs, above average breakfast buffet and spacious rooms. The hotel is nicer from outside, but average inside. You won't get any great view unless you book their better rooms in 5h floor or above which are high up in the hill offering... More

It is a new resort another reviewer said it was a wannabe 5 star. Not true, it knows what it is, a middle priced resort in a popular beach area of Phuket. Service is good, staff have good English and provide efficient service. The property's maitenance budget will be significant because fixtures and fittings are ageing already. Pools are a... More

Sugar Palm Grand has been such an amazing experience for me and my husband that we are fans now! The finding was accidental and we're so glad we stumbled upon this place. We visited Phuket earlier this month, got on a resort we didn't like at all as it promised a sea view in it's description but was so opposite... More

Nice hotel with good views of Kata beach and surrounding area. Since hotel is on a hillside, its quiet and peaceful. Staff generally friendly. Room beautifully furnished with quality fixtures throughout. Issues included the air conditioner having no remote control, and scooter parking not separated from staff scooters, thus having to move staff scooters to get out. During check-in, I... More
