When I opened the door to my room, I was overwhelmed by the smell of pungent moth balls. I ask the staff for a room that did not have such a strong smell, but they did not have one. The staff was very kind and tried to be accommodating, they offered me perfumed room spray, and a menthol nose inhaler.... More

Would definitely recommend a trip here. Very clean and well priced. Ali and his staff are all wonderful and extremely friendly. If you stay here you must got o Ali's restaurant on the beach. It serves the finest pizza that i have ever tasted! Just wish we had stayed here longer! Thanks Ali

Everybody needs an Ali when they go on holiday! This man deserves a 5 star rating on his own! From the moment we arrived at Taro he has made us feel incredibly welcome and made sure that our trip ran smoothly and was always at hand to help if we had any questions.

I booked this room through hotels.com. i think i was mistaken by the pics since they were all of their upgraded rooms shown. We shuld have paid the little extra because they looked way nicer than what we got. This is a budget hotel, but i just felt like the room we were in was kinda gross and it did... More

One of the main reasons I had chosen Taro was its affordability and value for money because I had planned to stay in Phuket for two weeks. It was a good decision in that respect. I had the bungalow room which was the most basic of all the rooms they offer. The room was equipped with a king-sized bed, flat... More

my friend and I stayed here for 5 nights this month. Ali and his family who own the hotel, are an absolute delight, and will do their upmost to accommodate and help. We stayed in one of the bungalow rooms, which are modern but basic. The bed is comfortable, and the rooms are cleaned daily. Nice small pool to cool... More

At the begin we planned to stay only one night at Taro hotel but we finally stayed three nights because we really love this place! This is such an amazing place: the bungalows are clean, modern and quiet and studio apartments are so spacious: i highly recommended them! What we really appreciated was the easy contact with the owner, very... More

This hotel is not directly on the beach, its about a 10-15 minute walk down a road and across the main street. I'd recommend this hotel only if your staying in town for more then a few days as there are many places closer to the beach. HOWEVER, the hotel was quite new, and suite has a large kitchen with...

I have stayed here several times over the past 2 ½ years and thoroughly recommend it. It is not so much a hotel as a cluster of condos. There is a reception and a small pool but no other facilities you would associate with a hotel. That being said, the rooms are large, well equipped, comfortable and clean (but the... More

We have enjoyed your loyal and pleasant stay here. Thank you for your kind and poignant remarks. Our travels showed us that room rate costs included the cost of large wasted space lobbies, reception areas, and oversized pools that no one used especially after a day at the beach. So, we decided to follow the trend of value over wasted... More
