Back the second time to Phuket would recommend the hotel to anyone (family,couple or single). We were greeted with a big warm smile even that it was 10.00pm. Staff fantastic always with a genuine smile and willing to help, they made us feel if it was our home. I could not express with word as it was beyond expectation. "CHOICES... More

This was my first destiny in Thailand. And I am so happy I had such a great welcome. I arrived during a storm, and the people from reception gave me a towel and something to drink. Check in was very fast and I was in a very Confy A/C room. The following day we enjoyed the pool with great weather... More

The resort was nice, lots of pools to choose from - including a pool bar. Got to give props to the deep pools (6 feet if I recall correctly). The surrounding area is pretty squalid, and unfortunately the traffic is pretty congested within walking distance of the hotel and the sidewalks are too narrow and sometimes non-existent. This makes walking... More

Any response from the maintenace takes age to arrive. The entrace foyer is amazing unfortunatly this doesnt follow through to the rooms. The pictures are very misleading. Phuket is seedy on a...

Rooms were nice and clean, but nothing special (although did find the bed to be super comfortable:-). Took quite a while to check in. Staff friendly enough and the breakfast was fabulous - restaurant lovely, great choice of food. Shame that the hotel is not on the beach, but beach is only a short walk away. Just outside the hotel... More

We chose to have a 10 day recovery holiday after 3 weeks of a hectic trip to UK to visit family. The staff were helpful and friendly it is fair to say but the rooms are tired and in need of a spruce up. The bathroom tiles were cracked and the shower was very basic, the toilet needed assistance on... More

We loved everything about this hotel, which is unusual as we normally find one or two points of annoyance even in the best places. This hotel was good in all categories with excellent facilities, big comfortable room and most important staff who could and were willing to really help make out stay better.
