Not the prettiest building from outside, the Nipa Resort was very well presented inside and offered pretty good value for money. Location is close enough to Patong beach and facilities to easily walk there. The pool is great, and the staff are friendly and helpful (some limited English, but the message gets through).
The biggest drawback is the currently unmade road at the front and with the slightest rain, it be becomes a quagmire very quickly. While this is temporary, there isn't any work going on at the moment, so I assume it will be like that for some months. Thank goodness it only rained sporadically through my week. It would have become an issue in the rainy season.
Yes, the hotel clientele is heavily Russian and, to a lesser degree, Chinese. But hey, it's international travel, so if you embrace the fact that we can all have holidays, that shouldn't pose a problem.
Don't waste your money on a superior room. For about $5 more per night, you can get a Deluxe - I ordered a superior by accident on-line and, when i saw it, immediately chose to pay over the odds for an upgrade. Deluxe pool view is the way to go - Deluxe non-view does not offer anything pleasant to see.
Breakfast is disappointing, but edible. Wifi is limited to certain areas only and I difficulty connecting at times.
