“NOT ALL THESE ROOMS BELONG TO TIME SHARE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

TO SupremoEst
not all these rooms are owned by time share.
our room 213 has nothing to do with time share it is owed by hardworking west australians.
we bought the room 4 years ago and love it.
we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

Room Tip: 213 a large corner room bright and sunny

Beautiful, classy hotel, right beside Patong's party district. The staff are friendly and the restaurant is great. Can be a little noisy, though. so maybe arrange somewhere closer to the Phuket airport for your last night in Thailand.

Room Tip: If you want to experience Bang La Road from a classy perspective, go for it.

Dear Griffynn

All the staff at Absolute Bangla Suites are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your review.

It is hoped that soon, the trip to the airport will be slightly shorter with some road improvements and these will be welcome.

We hope that you will chose to stay with us once again upon your return to Patong.

We stayed here during our holiday in Phuket and we can't ask for a better place to stay. Yes, it is near to clubs and can be a little bit noisy but maybe we are ok with it. The room was luxurious!!! With jacuzzi at the balcony. There was also a rooftop pool. Very very nice. Location was a short walk to the beach. Also near to Jungceylon Mall. Many places to eat and shop.

We requested a room at the back of the hotel, away from the noise of the bangla road nightlife & were given a room right next to a new club that had recently opened. The next day we transferred to the Absolute Sea Pearl Resort, which was fabulous. The receptionist at the Bangla Suites who checked us in could barely make herself understood in English & we were delighted to check out after one sleepless, noisy night. Never again !!

Stayed here recently for a week. Rooms were very clean, tidy, well furnished. Had large 2 person private spa bath, shower and toilet, Kitchen well equipped if you wish to do any cooking - microwave, full size fridge, hotplates, pots and pans etc Serviced twice daily - fully cleaned/beds made in the morning, beds turned down and tidy up in the evening.Towels changed daily - even beach towels provided as well. Hotel colour scheme amused us somewhat - a bit porn style we thought...with the red and black, plus blue ceiling mood lighting lol
Location is great!! You are in the heart of it all...really close to everything, night life/bars, 100's of restaurant/eatery choices, mini mart, the beach, shopping - both street/market vendors and upmarket shopping malls. A great rooftop pool and spa with a nice restaurant and bar- nice views from up here -especially at night. Happy hour by the pool 4.30 -6.30pm with half price drinks each night is great. Hotel staff were fantastic -very friendly, helpful with great service.
Would quite happily stay here again - just request a room further back from the street entry side - to minimize the nightlife noise...it's only real down side.

Room Tip: As for a room away from the street entry side, so you are further away from the night club/street no...

Stayed here with my husband and 7 year old son. We stayed in a one bedroom unit that had a bed for our son in the lounge. It also had a jucuzzi. It was very flash, the furnishings were amazing. It had a full kitchen and plenty of towels, flannels, complimentary bottled water replaced every day. The roof top swimming pool was lovely, although a bit small with not many sun loungers. However, we were to stay there 4 nights but checked out a day early because the noise from the night clubs next door was so loud we couldn't sleep! It went on from the evening until about 3am each night and our room was right next door to it all. Would be ideal for those who are out partying as it is right in party central!! We tried to see if we could get a room on the other side of the hotel but there were none available. We also tried to get a room in another absolute hotel but again, nothing available. The staff were great, the rooms fantastic but the location was not good for us being a family. We preferred our stay in Surin Beach which is much better for families.

Room Tip: When you book make sure you choose a room on the opposite side of the hotel if you want to sleep at...

Dear JojoAuckland

thank you for taking the time to send in your feedback.

I was aware of your position at the time of your stay and was part of the team trying to find alternatives however unfortunately there was no other availability.

I have asked our reservations team to make it more clear that the location may not be as family friendly as our other resorts and action is currently being taken on making the soundproofing more effective.

Thank you for your review and your understanding at the time.
