Pleasant and good value, nothing negative to say, a good steady all rounder. The location is good, its a 5/10 minute walk to the beach meaning you are surrounded by the hubub of Kata/Karon. Most people will describe Kata as the quiet, peaceful part of Phuket but actually I found this place quite lively/noisy, depending on how you look at... More

Date of visit: 29 Mar - 1 Apr 2014 Pre-stay: Took the risk of staying in this hotel after reading reviews about the broken lifts and its extremely steep terrains. We arranged for hotel transfer which costed 1200 baht/way, driver was friendly and chatty. Upon reaching the resort, facilities (both lifts) were working fine and we had a friendly staff... More

What can I say about our stay in the hotel? And why did I say it needs improvement? POOL ACCESS ROOM--Our room is 4107 and we have the privacy that we need but what happened during our stay is that their ground lift broke down so we have to climb the hill every time. Which is very tiring if you... More

We got an awesome promo deal and stayed 4 nights at a pool access room in this hotel. The infinity pool was just gorgeous, had an awesome view, and really did come in handy especially during the afternoon hours when there is zero shade on the beach and for late night dips :) We strongly recommend the breakfast buffet and...

We had a room on the 5th floor, we didnt see or hear any of the building works people have mentioned in other reviews. The room was decent, bed very comfortable, pools fantastic, breakfast a bit basic but still more than adequate. The location is great for the beach and Kata Beach's attractions. The staff are fine and happy to... More

Our first room was situated on the 11th floor and very far away from the entrance, it took 2 lifts and quite a walk to get to the room (10 mins) when we got to the room it was very nice although extremely noisy due to a problem with wind hitting the patio doors and walls. Unfortunately we had 2... More

Stayed here from 9th through 18 January 2013. The rooms were clean and tidy and replenished each day with drinks and clean linen. The hotel has probably one of the best sites in Kata Beach away from the beach front which is monopolised by Kata Beach Spa Resort and Club Med. Easy 5 minute walk to the beach and although... More

The construction noise appears to have stopped (for now) and they only need to finish trimmings in some rooms. The site is steep, but the driveway is only 30m long from the road to reception. Three best aspects in my view were the location between kata noi and Kata yai, the breakfast (trying to cater to multiple tastes) and the... More

My second stay at this hotel and again was more than happy with room, breakfasts and service provided by the efficient staff at the Sugar Palm Grand Hillside. We were upgraded to a pool access room due to renovations which were being undertaken on some of the lower floors (no noise or inconvenience encountered) and I wouldn't hesitate to opt... More
