“Value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

The hotel could do with an upgrade in places but the swim up room we had was a good size,the shower was brilliant and the only criticism was there was not enough drawer space for two!
The breakfast was good and had a great choice of food and the staff were friendly and helpful.
There is a shuttle to the beach every hour but you can actually walk it as it takes about 15 mins,the only problem is you have to be at the beach before 10am or after 12pm or you may not get a chair! The beach sun beds are a bit tatty and the covers are pretty grotty but you get a nice thick beach towel to cover them!
The hotel is in a great location for the shops ,bars and restaurants in kata and for the money is good value.

The staff at this hotel were professional and and friendly. We stayed for 10 days. 5 days in a pool access room, 3 days in a pool view room and on the last night, an upgrade to a pool access suite. Wonderful!

My husband and I take a lot of holidays in resorts which are usually all inclusive. this place had breakfast included and it was fantastic everyday. We loved our room, we had pool access from our balcony and that was as terrific as you can imagine. really big bed( california king)we had no problem sleeping with no noise at all from any room around us and they were all occupied. A/C worked really well, shower is amazing, the only teeny tiny negative was the TV reception was terrible. but not a big deal. The staff were just wonderful at all times and really helpful. we arrived after 30 hours travel and they wanted us to wait 3 hours. I explained how exhausted I was and could they do anything. They did. we had our room in 15 minutes. how many people arrive feeling refreshed yet they listened and made it happen.
The hotel was very clean, food in restaurant was great, We were delighted and highly recommend them. I have never had a better experience in that we had no complaints even if we dig. I cannot find one. no TV is not a bad thing lol. We had 4 hours extra after checkout until we needed to leave for the airport. we paid a small extra and had our room until the last minute.

Room Tip: They only have rooms facing the pool, and we had the main level with pool access. it was incredible...

We booked a pool access room for 5 nights and was very happy considering this cost less than $60. Real value for money here. Everything was fine with one exception. The breakfast is superb. Eggs which ever way you want including poached. Great variety. The shuttle bus works well and the beach equipment was adequate considering it was included in the price.
The hotel has free beer and wine every Thursday evening for a few hours. Here you will get the opportunity to air any grievances directly with the hotel manager Gino. Not many Hotels offer this type of opportunity.
Gino is an engaging character who is only too happy to hear your thoughts on the hotel and it's staff.
My one complaint was the TV reception. It was very poor. We enjoy keeping up with the latest news and sport. Gino stated that the hotels large TV reception amplifier, which was located in the hotel basement had been broken by flooding water. As a replacement the hotel had installed a system which worked on a relay by boosting the signal as it stretched out to the extremes of the hotel. He admitted that he had been ill advised and based upon the continuing complaints he will revert back to the previous central system.

Room Tip: The donuts at breakfast are wicked

After starting a week's stay in Patong, we left after two nights, and headed to Alpina. We first visited this quiet and relaxing hotel 5 years ago. We were warmly received and check in was quite quick. As the room needed another 30 to 40 minutes of cleaning time (we arrived before the check in time), we chilled in the pagoda reading our books. We booked 3 nights at the hotel in the pool access room. It's worth a little extra to have this perk. The room was simple yet well laid out. The breakfast was quite good - not a huge variety but the menu changed slightly everyday to give some range.
The hotel has a designated area with lounge chairs in Kata Beach which was quite handy. The hourly shuttle bus to and for the beach was useful too. The area has grown since our last visit but not as thriving as Patong. The streets were quiet and no hassling message parlor nor vendors to annoy you to buy some handy crafts.
We will be back - for sure!!! Can't wait!

I booked this hotel for me and 5 friends for my birthday weekend. It looks nice in all the pictures and the reviews generally read well. Well - don't be fooled. This hotel is not worth the discounted price. On arrival, the staff were neither helpful nor polite. The room that we booked was not given to us and the room that was given smelt so bad. If you think the pool looks wonderful in the pictures, don't be fooled. The gym was terrible. I travel a lot with work and the staff in this hotel have certainly never been trained in customer service. Horrific!! I would rather spend a little more next time and avoid this hotel again at all costs!!

Room Tip: Pay more and stay in a villa - not that I saw one, but it has to be better than the standard rooms!
