I don't like writing less than excellent reviews which is why I often don't write a review at all but I feel in this instance it could be helpful. I have rated this as a three* but that is because we paid £100 for the room- compared with two other hotels I have stayed at in Phuket this one was overpriced. Had we paid just £50 I would have rated it as a four* maybe.
Firstly the pros: Good location on Karon beach with excellent restaurants and shopping nearby. Powerful shower, plenty of hot water and a good-sized bath. Friendly staff and clean swimming pools with oversized towels readily available. The plants around the hotels are absolutely gorgeous. Not too busy, excellent breakfast and comfortable bed with clean good-quality bedding. 6 free bottles of water left in the room every day was a good touch.
The cons: When we arrived nobody met us and we had to carry our own suitcases up the steps. The hotel is a little rundown and tired - a good refurbishment is needed. The balcony was OK but rather small. Wifi is charged at £6 per day - most hotels offer this free these days. I can't blame the hotel for this but most of the people staying were Russian - it would have been nice to see some English people. There were quite a few children staying but they were well-behaved with attentive parents.
In summary the hotel was adequate but we felt we had paid too much for the standard of the hotel.
