“We recommend this hotel due to the quiet location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We recommend the hotel based upon the price and the location. Only 10 minutes walk to the fantastic Kata beach.
The room was not new renovated but ok. We had some problem with mosquitos as we stayed in base level. The room was cleaned and we received new towels every day. (also for use at the beach)
We will evaluate to return to this place later.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less mosquitos

Amazing pools, restaurant , spa and rooms. The only dampener was firstly after paying extra for a hotel transfer from the airport no such transport was arranged instead we had to sort out taxi and fare in peak traffic. Second on arrival when we noted this and showed on our booking that it had bee arranged, the reply was sorry we have no information on this. Thirdly on arrival after stressful transport we were told that breakfast was not included even though we paid extra on our booking and our booking stated 'deluxe room with breakfast' (as this was what The deal name was) under the breakfast category is said not selected as we didnt have to select it, it was included in the above package. This was not resolved until 2days into Te holiday and was only resolved mainly due to repetitive complaints and asking all possible managers.

We had a great staying at the Kata Sea Breeze. At check in, they had noticed that some other guests with the same surname as me was checking in the same date (my family), so we got rooms next to each other. Really good first impression! There were also a small car that drove us and our luggage directly yo our room. We also got rooms in the new part of the hotel, and it was fine. Just a few steps to the pool, perfect! The staff at the hotel was really nice, and we became friends with ceveral of them. Most of the guests at the hotel were russian or chinese, so we never interacted with any of them. Most of the nights we where the ONLY guests in the restaurant, so that`s perhaps why we connected so well with the staff. We also used the taylor at the hotel, and we are SO satisfied!!! Kim (the taylor) did a really good job, and much cheaper then the other taylors nearby.
The hotel is placed in a calm area, but still close to the beach and close to a lot of restaurants. Just outside the hotel is a booth where you can always get a taxi, really practical. We also checked, and in ceveral cases the taxis at the hotel was cheaper than the tuk-tuks.
The only negative thing about the hotel was the matresses. It was like sleeping on the ground. Even the sunbeds were more comfortable.

I highly recommend Kata Sea Breeze Resort as a good and quiet base in the area of Kata Beach, Phuket. It takes a 10 min. stroll through Kata Beach "business street" to get you to the wonderful beach. The sorroundings are full of excellent restaurants - both with cheap and more expensive prices. Visit for exsample the many small family restaurants, where you might find mother and her sister or mother in the kitchen while the father or brother is waiting the tables of hungry guest. For guests are what you are in Thailand. :-)

No warm welcome on check in. Not a singe staff member bothered to give a smile. Room was run down and featured a late 80s style interior. Elevator smelled of oil and grease. There was a serious ant infestation in our room. Woke up with bite marks on arms and feet. Decided to check out one day early due to the poor impression of this hotel. Breakfast buffet a big joke, with 100s of guests and a few staff members not up to their job, it was chaotic. Stay away from this hotel please.

I stayed in this hotel for a few nights in January and I have to say it has got to be the worst place I've ever stayed at. The biggest fault was how rude the staff are. One example was when we arrived there was no direction to your room it was just a matter of get on with it.

The rooms were out of date and needed a big refurbishment and the food was awful. The organisation of breakfast was just shocking.....was too many people in a small area at one time and not enough tables and simple things like milk and butter weren't replenished. When you found someone to ask for some more they didn't understand you and walked off!!

Upon checkout I have never been treated so badly and was accused of taking stuff from the mini bar which we hadn't. When we disputed this and said we wouldn't pay for the items we didn't have they wouldn't back down and we ended up arguing with them for over half an hour. Not a relaxing end to your stay!!!! The silly thing was when we settled the bill because our taxi was waiting; had we not a boat to catch we would have only paid for what we had. When we said we wouldn't pay for it they called security on us! So after all the agro we gave in and paid because we had to leave they gave us a 2 year out of date can of beer!!! So they are just out to get extra money out of guests which is totally unacceptable.

So if you want a relaxing welcoming stay and don't want hassle when you leave avoid this hotel at all costs. The diamond cottage resort and spa down the road is much better.

Thank you for your valued comment, we are pleased to listen for all advices. However, from your comment, as we just expanded our hotel to 330 rooms and some staff are new for our hotel, they are now adjusting themselves to service better. Again, we are sorry for the situation which you met.

We found the service only good if tips were involved, disorganized and hidden costs. Two rooms of our group were accused of stealing or breaking cups- and were going to be charged for them- but when escorted staff back to back to room they were clearly and obviously exactly where they should have been. Very odd. Not very friendly either which we found particularly unusual for this part of the world.
