We stayed here as a last minute decision whilst moving around Phuket (as was planned).
After walking into the elaborate foyer (electrical doors and all) we were disappointed to find that we had to climb up almost a 15 minute journey to find that our door to our hotel room was not synced with the key card we were issued with. Had to walk all the way back down as the staff we encountered did not have communication devices to contact anyone downstairs and then walk all the way back up.
Staff were not very helpful when they could clearly see we were struggling with some bags.
The buffet breakfast was definitely a spread to be reckoned with! It seemed at times to be somewhat wasteful and while enjoying the food, we tried not to imagine what they did with the leftovers or if we were in fact consuming them at that moment.
The towels for the pools had some ridiculous process that to this day I cannot explain. So keep an eye out for that! WiFi was only available in the foyer which was strange for a US owned resort.
Would definitely NOT recommend room service - it arrived cling-wrapped and soggy.
The room was clean enough but the mini bars unstocked.
Overall, we left with a lot less money then we arrived, got budget style accommodation but some intense food out of the Best Western!
