“Good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights in Nov. Its a decent 7-10 minute walk to the beach and 20 minute walk to Bangla.

Never had breakfast so can't comment. Staff friendly and room clean. Good WiFi but seemed to slow down in the evening. Good shower also, warm water and plenty of pressure.

Would stay there again.

Stayed November 2013, traveled as a couple

The beach is very close to the hotel but it has also a nice terrace pool. The rooms are large enough, clean and comfortable. Food is good but you can also find nice restaurants around easily. Staff are very helpful, they like and care about kids. we are planning to go there again next year :)

I consider myself as one of the lovers of the natural beauty of Patong beach.

I picked this hotel first time since I had some issues during my previous stay in the hotel where I used to stay for the last 2 years, during my last trip to Phuket.

As a professional who seeks quite environment while off the job, I must state that the location of the hotel was quite satisfactory. And as a parent to a toddler, it was exactly how I wanted.

Comfortable beds, cleanliness, decent food, good quality of service were among the other things to comment.

Strongly recommended to families with toddlers.

Stayed September 2013

Stayed here for ten days. The price was excellent. Rooms are a decent size at a little over 200 square feet. The rooms have a small balcony. There is a small rooftop pool and a free computer for internet surfing in the lobby. The place is clean and the furniture in good condition. The location is in a cluster of mid-rise buildings near Nanai road in the south end of Patong. There are several other hotels in the cluster that are similar (e.g. N Marina, Garden Phuket, Citin, Patong Star) The beach is a couple of blocks away. Bangla is about a mile away. The pick-up truck to Phuket town (and the old bus station) stops nearby. I had no interaction with the staff and cannot comment on them other than to say that check-in was very fast.

The hotel has an Arabic bar under it and the noise is "VERY LOAD", the bar closes at 6am, good luck sleeping if you stay there.

Staff do not change the bed sheets, I caught them rotating the sheets, e.g. putting the dirty feet area to the head under the pillow, disgusting.

Breakfast is stale and cold, I saw the staff use dirty rags to wipe plates, cups and cutlery.

Staff do not like foreigners, I am a foreigner and understand Thai, I caught them several times talking badly about the tourists that stayed at the hotel including myself.

I was booked to go back to Phuket from the provinces in 3 weeks to meet some friends and had 4 rooms booked there, we wil NEVER return to this hotel, they even tried to cancel that booking 3 days before to give the rooms to their Russina Tour Group, we refused, let the rooms stay empty for a few days, perhaps they will learn something, but I doubt it.

Have stayed at Phuket many times before, this is by far the WORST place to stay !

Dear Angelo;

We are sorry that you had such kind of bad experiences at your stay. I believe it was mostly because of the high season rush.

I would like to inform you that Issara Resort had a management change on 15th of September 2013, there is no bar under the hotel with loud music, existing management also contains foreigners and all nations customers are important for us. Please give us a chance to show how we improved the service in Issara Resort at your next visit to Phuket.

Thank you for your understanding, we would like to see you soon.

Best Regards
