“Fantastic Family Resort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

Loved this resort. Stayed in the two bedroom villas - part of the JW Marriott resort for seven nights in April. An awesome resort for families - three pools, water slide, Ya Ya the baby elephant for visits and rides a few times per day and nice to see that a five star resort lets local set up their massage and other wares upon the beach for the real Thai experience. I can not fault anything at this resort. Even the food and beverage offerings are not too far over the norm, and if it is then it is just a short walk up the beach to local eateries with amazing local cuisine and drinks at a rock bottom price. If you want to go to Patong then the 45 min drive can be sourced for THB 700 one way, again not overly expensive. Villa was cleaned daily and clean towels and linens each day, replenished large bottles of water x 3 each day and amazing towel animals to welcome the children at the end of a busy day.
All in all a perfect resort for families who want to relax and enjoy.

Room Tip: Request north end villas for younger families and south end if you have older children or you are a...

We stayed a whole week here and loved it. We are definitely going back....

We had a wonderful 2 bedroom suite which is fully equipped with everything one needs - washing machine/dryer, full kitchen. Being a family with 3 small kids, this was wonderful.

The facilities are awesome - they have 3 large pools with a kids pool in the middle, where we spent most of the time. They have a lovely kids club where my 2 boys spent most of the time...it is very spacious with fun activities scheduled the whole day.

The hotel also has many restaurants but be ready to shell atleast US$50 for a bottle of wine! We loved the Thai and Japanese restaurant and were not impressed by the Italian or the Steak restaurant.

The Spa is great and we had a fantastic massage. You should also get the massages on the beach, much cheaper and with ok results. The Gym is great and they have fantastic classes for both adults and kids. The Yoga for adults and fishing with kids definitely recommended. For Golfers out there, Blue Canyon is a must visit. This is quite close to the hotel as well.

It is quite far from the city center or Patong but very close to the airport. We rarely left the hotel and never felt the need to!!

We had certain reservations though:
The hotel was overbooked and clearly the staff were stretched....Concierge need to be trained better to make bookings. Most of the times, the phones to the concierge were never attended!! The kids area was also chaotic and need to be staffed better.

Just coming to the end of a fantastic holiday in Phuket. Suite accomodation is perfect, spacious, luxurious and well equipped. Food amazing in every restaurant and prices OK. We have 4 year old twins, and kids club is amazing. More activities than you can do, and most of them at no additional cost. The trapeze and circus schools are world class - I have literally never seen my kids so motivated, excited and happy as when with Ron and the team. Massages on the beach for £10 an hour are fab! We had a problem at check-in but Mao, the Resort Manager sorted it quickly (reservations need to get their act together). Only other negative is shortage of beds around pools, but when everything else is this good, you can cut them a bit of slack! Overall a fabulous time with an incredibly friendly team at Marriott.

We are currently on day 2 of our 3 night stay. This place is really beautiful away from all the hustle and bustle. Staff is amazing. Didnt like the location of our room the 1st night....jst had to let them know and they did an amazing job in providing us a well located room. The kids are having a blast. One of the best kids room i hv seen in any hotel worldwide. All in all a gr8 holiday in progress.....will post further once we are done... Hats off to all the staff that takes such good care of a massive property.

it was a great satisfactory and peaceful holidays at Phuket island, Thailand. Every minutes was just wonderful; time was limited as it was only 3 nites spent there. Definitely, I will go again to spend more days and nites on my next holiday in Phuket.

Room Tip: choose bt the pool or near lobby

We have three children below 6 and it is great to just chill in this holiday resort. Although away from Phuket city, there were enough to keep us occupied and spend a good 6 days on the resort. The children love the beach and pool ... The kid's club, newly renovated was a draw for them.. We even rented bicycles for free and did a family outing to nearby budget eateries. A bonus was meeting the director of sports, Sam, who gave my son a free bicycle lesson, to add courage to learning a new skill!

Would definitely return to do more sporting activities!!

The two bedroom who lived in was very comfortable for our family, including the grandparents. Kitchen facilities were excellent when we ate in... There were other options including ordering in from a Thai restaurant ... And JW Marriot together with turtle village offered good food alternatives!

All in all, a good experience even though it is our third visit! Always something new... Including the resident baby elephant this time!

With a very close location to Phuket airport, this resort is easy to get to, plus while you can see the planes coming and going, it isn't noisy because of it. Our 2 bedroom condo was really way too big for just the 2 of us, but wow! was it ever nicely equipped. We were wanting for nothing, except maybe a better map, as it took us almost the whole week to know our way around this huge property. Baby elephant on site twice a day was adorable, but ethically I wonder? The property was actually not bad price wise, for such a high end place, which is relatively secluded by Phuket standards. There are only 3 or so resorts, all high end, in the area. There is a mini mall with stores and a market nearby, but all here was very expensive for the convenience. There are a few local restaurants a few hundred meters up the road where many go for cheap food and beers. Bring your mozzy repellant! The food and drink at the resort is pricey by comparison, but the cheeseburger in Paradise at the bistro can't be beat, and you can even order it done to your liking for those of us dinosaurs that live dangerously. My wife loved the free palates and yoga every morning! I enjoyed the sauna before bedtime, and the free DVD library. The beach is very nice , coarse tan colored sand that squeaks when you walk in it! The beach is a few k long, and hardly any development. Wifi worked everywhere here, and all the staff we encountered were super nice. Lounger hogs were here as well, even though the umbrellas all had warnings for people that loungers not used for 45 minutes could have their articles removed. I think all hotels should have these warnings, and then actually apply them! I can't say enough about how nice this place is, and is managed. This is the third Marriotts resort I have been lucky enough to stay at worldwide, and they have all been fantastico!
