This is our 3rd time coming to Phuket and previously we stayed at the JW Mariott Phuket Beach Club from Interval International. The room that we stayed at the West Sands is NOT a resort. We really felt cheated. It is 2 bedroom connected with a living area (room 6613 - 6614). When we rolled in a resort, we wanted everything to be perfect. On the first day, the floor in our room is dirty, the wall has scratches, the light bulbs burned out and the DVD players did not work. Oh and get this, between room 6613 and 6614, there were 2 doors but only 1 side each has a door handle. The door between the 2 rooms must be closed in order to get to the refrigerator. The rooms offered from the Interval International sucks. There was power outage later on at night and the flashlight did not work. Our 3 year old thought the airplanes are kind of cool. The villa is okay, but is not offered as part of the Interval International. The infinity pool sucks, there is no slide. We have to still pay to get into the Splash Jungle Water park (1050 Baht instead of 1495 Baht). I would not recommend this place if you are exchanging points from Interval International. You will be very-very dissapointed.
