I would go back to this hotel for the food alone. We were doing some hotel-hopping on our last Easter trip to Phuket, and this one was by far the best of the three we tried.
First, the food. Second the food. And third the facilites. Two decent-sized pools (one for adults, one larger one for kids), excellent. Quiet surroundings. Kid's club was decent with attentive staff. Gym a bit small, but still had enough equipment to satisfy without feeling too crowded. Quiet, somewhat secluded beach.
We had dinners at the main restaurant, and everything we had was good. Try the soft-shelled crabs. I am quite partial to them, but even my kids loved them. And they don't usually eat things whose legs they can identify. Also, we ordered lasagna for our kids off the kids' menu, and I couldn't believe how rich (and tasty) they made it -- just for kids!! Had I known, I would have ordered it for myself. I found the prices at the restaurant very reasonable for the quality on offer.
The rooms were a decent size and we got a beautiful seaview room.
The only drawback to this hotel is the lobby which is somewhat dark. The front desk is actually in a small wing before the bar/lobby in an even darker area, so I understood why we were led to the area we were in. But other than that, this is a nice-sized hotel that didn't feel too big or too crowded.
