There are many lovely restuarants within short walking distance from the hotel, mini bars with shopping outlets. The staff are friendly and make you feel... More

Great hotel for families. We have stayed in Phuket many time but this was the best. Staff were always very helpful and friendly. Pools, Gym and restaurants excellent. The hotel is located close the 7/11, bars and restaurants. Only a small walk to the beach. Will be booking again for next year.
