We stayed for a few days back in 2011 at this well known hotel and our stay was pretty decent. The rooms were clean, the atmosphere was nice, the hotel itself was beautiful and the service was good--though I wouldn't say extraordinary. This hotel caters heavily to foreign tourists like many hotels in Phuket and the hotel staff (in the main lobby) speaks English and patient.
At the main lobby you can exchange currency as well as well as book tours, field trips (such as elephant rides) and taxis/transportation--and no haggling here; the staff takes care of everything and the prices for all of the activities are clearly marked.
The room was totally fine and was surprisingly large.
There is a decent sized pool and a large restaurant. I can't really comment on the restaurant since we never ate there.
The only thing I wish was better was the location. Although it's on a scenic beach location-which was nice-it felt a little too secluded from the rest of Phuket. For instance, when leaving the hotel and walking around I felt a bit limited as to where we could go and what we could do. There simply just weren't enough options in the area of things to do and shops that were walking distance. Patong Beach would probably be better as far as location goes.
Overall, the hotel was great with good service so I would easily recommend it but you might have more fun in an area like Patong Beach.
