9 years since we visited Phuket when we were based near to Patong which was then an Aussie Blackpool with girlie bars. But we preferred the beaches of Karon, Kata and Kata Noi. Kata Poolside proved to be ideal for us Kata beach being only a 4 or 5 minute walk, Kata Noi is a little further and over a... More

This resort is really good value for money. The room is quite spacious and is very conveniently located with a quick 5 minute walk to the beach. The staff here were so friendly and made you feel so welcomed. They were also very helpful in arranging transfers from the airport and to your next destination. The room was a bit... More

This hotel isn't the greatest but nothing bad considering about the price. The restaurants, convenience stores, souvenir stores...etc are around this hotel. The swim up bar at the pool was closed. There were ants in the room, and the room wasn't that clean but the staffs working there are nice.

This place is nothing fancy but convenient. The pool is just ok but I would not stay here if I want to be on the pool all day. You should go for the beach resort instead which is double the price. I like this Kata Poolside Resort because it is comfortable, affordable and convenient. The attached restaurant is the best... More

Great rooms, pleasant staff and a fab pool. Couodnt ask for more from hotel. The area of kata beach seemed very quiet after coming from near banglor road in patong but in a way it was a welcomed bit of peace and quiet

Looks like a tourist trap restaurant from the street... Don't be fooled... Their Thai food is quite delicious, especially their peanut sauce! Also shrimp with their curry... Super! Super friendly staff (one of the chefs kept popping around and checking in on us and so enjoyed that we were enjoying our meal so much) on one of our visits, my... More

My husband and I go to Phuket annually and we stay in Kata Poolside because of its position, staff the cleanliness of the rooms. Rooms are serviced daily by happy smiling staff. Pool is really nice. There is a restaurant in the front of the hotel serves good affordable food. We will keep going back.

This is a very simple hotel with very welcoming staff. The breakfast is just ok, but lunch and dinner in the restaurant are usually very good. It is just 3 min walking to the beach, convenience stores around and multiple restaurants and souvenir stores. The pool is just okay and I didn't even try it because I spend all day... More

Fantastic service & value, pool fantastic. On site tailor, underwhelming fabric selection, and he seems to stand guard & never sleeps. Warned him tonight of crocs in the ornamental pond near foyer. I was being sarcastic, he seemed to understand the humor & didn't take offense. Housekeeping staff, although short on speaking , English, comprehended and couldn't have been more... More

The location is really what saves this place. Its just a short walk to the beach, and lots of shops are closeby. The rooms themselves were ok, beds were hard and there was no wifi in the room, but they were fairly clean. Staff were friendly, even though they didnt speak much English. A bit pricey for what you get.
