I read many reviews before selecting Pacific Club (Spa) Resort and I am grateful to all who have taken the time to contribute. The hotel was exactly as we expected. There are 8 or 9 rooms on 4 different floors as well as spa, restaurant, rooftop pool and well-maintained gardens and patio areas. The bedroom was spacious - 2 large closets, small kitchen area with sink, fridge and microwave and water heater (hotel provides coffee, tea and sugar) as well as small sofa, a small patio table and 2 chairs inside the room as well as outside on the balcony. I found the bed to be very comfortable and the pillows were heavenly - I slept better here than I do most nights at home!! Hairdryers old and fixed in bathroom - need updating.
Breakfast buffet was consistent with western staples: cereal, eggs to order, toast, fruit as well as a selection of different local dishes some changing on a daily basis. We booked through the hotel's own website and so our breakfast was included in our room rate. Free wi-fi too - fast and easily accessible.
The hotel was clean and well-maintained. We rented a scooter for a day, and realized we should have just rented one for the duration of our stay because the next time we wanted one they were already reserved. The hotel rate is competitive with the many rental places in town. Take note - you will need your passport to rent a scooter outside of the hotel. We never ate dinner at the hotel preferring to sample different places in town so i cannot comment on dinners served in the restaurant.
The pool is very user friendly and was very well maintained and clean - there is a fabulous view from the roof. Pool is in scale with size of hotel. As other reviewers have pointed out the hotel is fairly dark, but i found it had a cooling effect on me becase the air outside was certainly hot! The walk to and from Karon town took about 10 minutes at a liesurely pace. There is the steep section closer to the hotel but you have to be really out of shape to struggle with it.
Hotel staff were friendly and helpful but not always attentive, so you just found someone else who would get you what you needed.
All around a very enjoyable stay - our cost was average $100 per night for 2 of us including all taxes and 2 breakfasts daily - cannot complain at that.
