The resort was brilliant - lovely beach behind hotel which we went too daily where there was a little bar (cheap drinks) lovely to sit and take in the scenery! Also had a massage on beach (much cheaper than in hotel ) , also the little tiger cafe was brilliant on the beach great Thai food and so cheap !... More

We enjoyed our two-week stay - most importantly weather was perfect. A few comments: The free wifi was surprisingly good, kid enjoyed Netflix in the room at night and no issues with poolside music streaming. Two iPhones and one Macbook had no issues, while our iPad for some reason sometimes needed a reboot before bringing up the authentication page again.... More

1. Our problems started before we even got to the Hotel. This was our 4th visit and a month beforehand we asked to stay in the Terrace Wing overlooking the River pool. We also queried a room upgrade - but all we got was an offer to spend an additional AUD $100 per night for a swim-up room - which... More

In summary we don't recommend this place and wouldn't stay here again. Staying here at the moment. The hotel is dated as are the rooms and I think I'd describe it as more of a 3 to 3.5 star resort. Staff are not friendly. The beach is ok and the pools are good. Examples: Staff look miserable and unhappy and... More

We picked Thailand because of the beautiful weather and were not disappointed. The Hotel is in a beautiful bay away from Patong, which is really seedy, but somewhere to see at least once! The Hotel is clean,big, beautiful and with the most happy, kind and helpful staff. Our bedroom was of a high quality. We were on the top floor... More

Stayed there in 2003 and again in 2013 Loved the place, (thus the return in 2013). Away from the hustle of Patong, but only a short trip in. Sensational pools, great restaurants, spacious and clean rooms

My son was married here in November, wow what a wedding. Great venue overlooking the beach, outdoor ceremony and reception plus the whole undercover restaurant setup ready if the weather changed, which fortunately it didn't. The wedding planner Petchari was so efficient, she could not have done anything more, or better. She is a great asset for the hotel. The... More

We stayed here for the majority of our time in Thailand. The hotel is set back at the end of Patong beach and has it's own private beach which was perfect, we rented jet skis, kayaks and there were never more than 20 people on there at one time as the hotel has so many pools and loungers that everyone...

It is the second time we stay at this hotel. It is not a spotless hotel but it is great for a relaxing family holiday in Phuket. We have been about 10 times to Phuket, this is the best family resort. It has a lovely small private beach , great for snorkelling but not for swimming, too many corals. The... More

Definitely the best swimming pool I have ever seen, great for adults and the kids. The room was also big and comfortable for all the family. Actually we could have happily stayed in the hotel the whole time but the beach and lots of other good stuff was nearby.
