“Best family hotel in Phuket”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

It was a wonderful experience for our family there. The rooms were big and we got with the view of the pool and the sea. Hotel has 2 huge pools and a large beach with all the water toy rentals. The service was good and the staff friendly.

Room Tip: Book the tours to the rain forest from the Hotel, with the company called Anda Tours. They were good...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

I was here in Nov 2012 with a group of friends and we all decided that this was definitely a hotel we'd stay at again.
The private beach is great, the pool and sports facilities are clean and well-maintained, the breakfast buffet spread has wonderful variety, and the location--10 minutes away from Patong for shopping and atmosphere--is just right.
The best part of our stay though was the wonderful service. From the concierge, to the waiters, to the staff in charge of the sports facilities, the service should be rated 6 stars! The tennis coach would have cold face towels for us after our game. The concierge would recommend the best spa deals in town (one-for-one packages). The waiters would go on their hands and knees to look for a little screw that came loose from my spectacles, and even fix the spectacles with an improvised toothpick screw!
If one really must look for a drawback, then perhaps the lack of wifi in the rooms was inconvenient. We had to go to the lobby every time we wanted the free internet access.

Dear "siham c"


Thank you for taking the time to post your comment on TripAdvisor. We are delighted to know that you enjoyed your five-night stay with us and that you were pleased with the service and facilities at the resort. I sincerely regret the unsatisfactory interaction you had with one of our associates at the breakfast venue. As a matter of food safety we dissuade guests from taking food out from the buffet. However, I do agree with you that we could have communicated this to you more appropriately. Rest assured that it was not the associate’s intention to offend you and we sincerely apologize for the incident. We certainly value your feedback and hope that we may have the pleasure of welcoming you back to the resort.


Kind regards,

I stayed with my friend on 24th Nov 2012 in Junior suit with balcony.Excellent location with beach, safe to swim on the sea. Five kilometres away from the main Patong beach. Hotel taxi is expensive. Near hotel entrance private taxi available which is reasonable and we can bargain also.

We had a fantastic time at Le Meridien. From the pick up from the airport to the return trip to the airport everything was excellent. They celebrated their 25th anniversary whilst we were there and they should be proud of their staff as they could not do enough for you. My only moan is that we were half board which involved the hotel giving you vouchers for each lunch and dinner. When you presented these to any of the excellent restaurants the a la carte menu was withdrawn and we were given a different menu which did not have everything that was on the main menu. This really annoyed me as it made us feel second class. There must be a better way of doing this and I do not mind paying if I chose something expensive every night. As it was lunch was usually a salad so the hotel were saving money on us. Apart from this we had an excellent stay and have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

Dear "Ianandmorag"

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. We are delighted to know that you enjoyed your stay and are particularly pleased with your arrival and departure experience. We are also glad to know that you appreciate our associates' usual standard of service and the facilities at the resort. I have also taken note of your comment with regards to your dining experience and would like to mention that we are offering in all venues a half board menu with the exact same items as the regular menu. The only difference is that a surcharge is indicated for premium items such as prime beef cuts, lobster, etc. We do value your feedback and this has been shared with the Food and Beverage manager to review it accordingly, however please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused. Thank you once again for your recommendation and appraisal and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

We stayed at Le Meridien in November 2012 in the ocean front grande suite. This was absolutely stunning with beautiful living and dining areas, gorgeous bedrooms and sumptuous bathrooms. Each bedroom had a private balcony as well as the enormous balcony which ran the entire length of the suite. Our little boy loved the swimming pools and spent most of his time in the little pool which has a canopy for shade. Food was excellent especially the breakfast buffet which had everything you could possibly want. The staff were superb right from our arrival when we were greeted with lychee juice, cold flannels and floral bracelets. The day we were supposed to leave I became ill and I have to thank the nurse, doctor, duty manager and reception staff for taking such good care of me. Nothing was too much trouble. Security is taken very seriously at the resort with guards on the gate and at the lifts at night and we really appreciated this. I really don't think I could have chosen any better.
