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.

Stayed for 2 nights in December. As we checked in very late (around 10 PM) we got probably the worst room facing the taylor so we couldn't remove the curtains at all. However, the hotel itself was quite okay- the room was clean, quite spacious, staff was friendly. Sleep quality excellent- didn't hear a sound and the bed was very... More

The front desk was rude and not helpful at all. They couldn't help us get a taxi to the airport so we had to walk down the street with our luggage to find one. They said we would of had to order one the day before but they never let us know that. The food at the restaurant was horrible... More

I stayed here with my partner in September this year. Being wet season average temperatures were a little lower than peak season. The staff are friendly and helpful, the rooms were well maintained by the cleaning staff each day. Couldn't ask for more there. The room has a decent sized balcony overlooking the pool which is sparkling clean and refreshing.... More

Kata poolside is a nice hotel, 5 min walk from kata beach. The staff are nice and the rooms are immaculate and beautifully decorated. They also give you a discount at their restaurant next door (30% off dinner and a free welcome drink) which was worth doing - very good food! Quite pricey but nice to treat yourself after weeks...

Nice hotel near the beach. Hotel has two building with the pool in between. We took the pool view rooms on the 2nd building which has balcony on the pool side. Rooms are large with basic toilet amenities. No power shower but large and comfortable beds. Very nice breakfast at the restaurant which also offers 30% discount for the guests... More
