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

My second review of Taro was long overdue, since our second stay there. Another 5 months in beautiful Phuket, this time we chose to stay in the Taro penthouse and didn't regret it for a second. A master shower that fits a football team (international football please, not American!), an open plan design that gives you space enough to ride... More

I have stayed in the Taro Hotel many times now and have just booked it again for Dec/ January. This hotel is a pure gem of a place so much so that I was reluctant to review it before now as my instinct was to keep it a secret. But I have recommended it to so many people now that... More

I stayed at the TARO last year and it was he first place I headed to for my four week stay in Kamala in March?April 2014. Cool room, nice, clean, large and equipped for cooking if that is your thing. Good terrace with table and chairs leading down to the little pool. Very friendly and helpful staff. Close enough to... More

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment at taro hotel and it was really nice to have the space. It was a clean, large and open apartment, perhaps a little too sterile, but at least you know its clean! The kitchen is nicely equipped and its very handy having a big fridge as cold water is valuable in Phuket. It... More

We found Taro while looking for a short term accommodation on Phuket, where we ended up staying for 4 months. An excellent deal taking under consideration price/services/location/accommodation itself. Not too central, but this is exactly what we were looking for...a quiet place, with modern and comfortable rooms (a great bathroom which may seem funny to mention but for those who... More
