“Sabai (= comfortable in Thai) but Mai Saduak (inconvenient)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

A week here gave a good indication of how things are.

Stayed in a standard unit and ***not*** a penthouse suite. Unit is spacious, comfortable (couch, bed), full size fridge, toaster, microwave. Room service is OK but the quality of the towels needs to be improved (close to threadbare some days).

Pool is small but usable.

A trip to Surin beach will require a bit of a walk, maybe 10-15 minutes (depends on how hot the day is) but there are some great bars there - e.g. Catch beach Club (highly recommended).

Not much choice for food (no breakfast at the condo) except there are 2 Thai kitchens nearby - 1 right next to the Condo's driveway on the left hand side and one almost directly across the road (both cook and serve Thai food only). Also there is a small Tesco Lotus (fresh veg, meat etc if you want to cook) and a 7-11 (TV dinners) across the road.

Unless you have your own transport (car/motorbike), would not recommend Surin in general, and certainly not Surin Sabai. It's too far from Phuket Town, Patong and pretty much anywhere else.

Wont be staying here again, mostly because of the inconvenient location.

Hello,
Thanks for the review, I just wanted to say that the apartment you have been staying in is rented by Club Tropical on a yearly basis, this is the only one in Surin Sabai. So we do not manage this apartment, Club Tropical which is a "Vacation Club" specialist, offer this room to people who have been "winning" the free 1 week holiday while scratching the magic tickets in the street. So the people, like you, who are staying in this apartment, do not pay for their stay and usually do not even know until the last minute where they will be staying in Phuket. Our customers make the choice to stay far from noisy Patong and usually do not complain about staying far from Phuket-Town, where there is not much to do.
We are sorry that you spent your free week accomodation in the wrong place, but you did not choose the location and you should complain to Club Tropical, not on our Tripadvisor page.
Best regards,
Franck

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Pros: 10 minute walk to Surin Beach, Surin Beach is beautiful, calm for kids to play in, nice restaurants along the beach, the two bedroom units are very spacious, clean, updated, nice to have the two bathrooms, full kitchen, maid service daily, quiet, nice balcony. Internet/wifi available in lobby
Cons: 10 minute walk to beach, if you stay on the frontage road (where the Double Tree or Twin Palms is), cuts out about 5 minutes of your walk if this makes a difference to you, slightly more expensive for food, massages, etc on this beach than on other nearby beaches we found, we have two small children, so when it rained several days we felt isolated without much to do, as taxi's on the island are absurdly expensive to get anywhere, no wifi in the units.
Overall, I would recommend this place for families on a budget, who are looking to stay near a great beach within walking distance, but want extra space and a kitchen!

We checked into Surin Sabai on the 19th of December 2012. Very nice place. we were lucky to get a ground floor room, just near the pool. It was great for the kids as they could just step out and jump straight in! The only problem with the pool were the sharp edges which cut both my boys' legs. There was a nice balcony at the back which led into a small lawn - private to 2 rooms.

The room was neat. Cleaned everyday. They provided us with beach towels apart from the regular bathing ones. It is close enough to the beach - just a 7-10 min walk.

This hotel is very far from the centers of Activities that are more than 10 kilometers, and provides no service not even an breakfast or laundry.

You need to turn off the air conditioning really noisy, if you want to sleep! no internet access, unless you go into a space where absurd you stand standing up with your laptop.

A fee will be charged for suplémentaire card payment,
with the obligation to pay otherwise the responsible involves the police ! ! !

pool very small even for the absurd number of dwellings.

BE CAREFUL !!!!

the owner of the premises will send you an aggressive letter was read a bad appreciation !

Cher Eric,
Vous avez réservé sur Booking.com pour une durée de 5 jours, dont les conditions de réservations sont:
"Annulation : En cas d'annulation ou de modification jusqu'à 15 jours avant la date d'arrivée, l'hôtel ne prélève pas de frais. En cas d'annulation tardive ou de non-présentation, l'hôtel prélève le montant total de la réservation."
Vous êtes arrivé 2 jours en retard sans avoir essayé de contacter Booking.com, et n'avez voulu rester qu'une seule nuit et ne pas payer la totalité de la réservation tout en cherchant plusieurs excuses pour justifier votre annulation. Sachez que notre wifi peut-être capté dans les parties communes gratuitement, ce qui comprend le coin internet avec bureau et chaises, plus un lobby de 100 m2 avec sofa et fauteuils et la zone autour de la piscine avec ses chaises longues. J'ai donc du mal à comprendre pourquoi vous avez voulu rester debout.
Nous proposons toutes les excursions possibles sur l'île de Phuket et aux alentours, au départ de la résidence.
Surin Beach est à 400 m de la résidence, avec un choix énorme de restaurants, bars, boutiques. Les clubs de plongée, d'équitation et golfs, Spas sont dans un rayon de moins de 3 km, quelle genre d'activité allez vous chercher à 10 km, peut-être celles de Bangla Road? Dans ce cas vous avez fait un mauvais choix en réservant sur Surin, qui est une plage familiale et haut de gamme.
Cordialement,
Franck Capisano
Manager
PS: Nous avons un service de blanchisserie et personne ne s'est jamais plaint du bruit de nos climatiseurs.

We have been over to Phuket a few times now and last time we stayed at Surin Sabai Condo. Only 16km from the airport and have their own taxi that can meet you. Only 400mt to beautiful Surin beach with Tesco supermarket over the road. 15 min from Patong so if you want a night out jump in the taxi. We had a room the stepped out onto a pool so was very nice to relax with beer in hand. Will definately be staying there next time.
