Just came back from another great vacation at The Surin and had a wonderful stay.
->The staff were excellent as always (special Kudos to Lek, Tan, and Sara who made the stay that much better with their personal attention, smiles, and service!).
->Our room was great - spacious and clean - and the bed very comfortable.
->The food was excellent - love the breakfast with fresh fruits/juices, and eggs, waffles, pancakes etc made to order. Need to be sure the cappuccinos come out HOT (had a few that were barely warm).
->The beach area was fantastic as always and really one of the best beaches in all of Phuket. Wonderful white sand, emerald green water, and plenty of "water toys" for the more active and adventurous.
I think the combination of the great staff and outstanding beach make this the best bang for the buck on the planet.
My only concern: parking. We rented a car and consistently had to park far away up the hill from the entrance because the Surin's own vehicles were parked in the slots closest to the entrance. I would think the guests should have priority for the slots closer to the entrance for parking.Do hope this is addressed before our next visit.
