“Enjoyable stay at club bamboo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Club bamboo

We stayed here initially for 4 nights but decided to stay on for a further 5 as we enjoyed our stay here.

The rooms here are large enough with plenty of closet space, rooms serviced daily, tea and coffee making facilities, double bed and a large terrace.

We stayed in room 203 which was directly under the reception but overlooking the pool, and the terrace captured a lot of sun during the day.

The hotel also has a small swimming pool, on site gym (both free to use) but the spa centre (only massages) were chargeable at prices you would expect from a hotel.

I know other reviewers complained about faulty gym equipment but we found everything to be working perfectly. There are also yoga mats there which we tended to use the most and were left in peace to do so. I presume not many people want to come on holiday to work out!

It was about a half hour walk to the beach but the hotel do run free shuttle services at 12pm, 4pm and 7pm with returns at 12:45pm, 4:45pm and 7:45pm if you don't fancy a walk. If you wish to stay out later then a Tuk Tuk will only cost you 200 THB back to the hotel from the centre. (Although they may ask for more if you say no, 200 they promptly agree)

The pool area is quite small and is located in such a way that only a few sun loungers (which were always occupied) capture the sun and only for a few hours but we were quite happy to sun bathe on our terrace and walk down to the pool when it got too hot.

It's worth noting that there is a massage parlour about 10 seconds walk from the hotel and they are half the price of the club bamboo.

There is also an excellent steam sauna directly across the road in "Le Jardin" hotel which anyone can use and is 150 THB per person. It also has a jacuzzi and showers and free drinking water is included. We used this almost every day as it was so refreshing!

Although it is a little out the way of Patong beach there are a lot of surrounding amenities. Family Marts/7-11's, very inexpensive Thai restaurants, laundry services and BBQ buffets, all within walking distance.

In terms of Patong in general you might get stopped by the numerous amount of scratch card people wanting to sell you time shares! Although they are seemingly not called that now! Trust me, every second card is a winner and it's always the female who wins! We went to a couple (fully aware of what the scam actually was) but went to get the free breakfast they offered and managed to get a free trip to Phi Phi Island out of it! So as long as you know how to play the game and have a couple of hours to kill you can gain from it but DO NOT sign up for anything! It is a scam!

Also I would be very wary of buying anything with so called "brand names" from the street stalls! I purchased what was apparently a beats bluetooth speaker which worked for a few days before it starting buzzing and not connecting. When I tried to return it I was told there was no exchange. When I tried to reason with the guy he pushed me several times and broke my sunglasses! Not wanting to ruin a holiday by getting in to a fight I reported the incident to the police but was basically waived away. So buy anything at your peril!

Overall club bamboo is a great little place to stay and I would recommend it. I would stay here again "if" I decided to return to Patong! Although my personal experience of the area might make me reconsider so I hope this review will give you a better perspective!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights while passing through Patong. When we got to the reception the four of us were offered to upgrade to the 'private villa' (see trip advisor cover photo), because they didn't have rooms with separate beds available in the main hotel. Because the villa is up the hill, farther away from the hotel we were also given free scooters that we could use as we pleased.

The bad
Ok, so what could possibly go wrong?

The private villa has mouldy bathrooms to the point where sleeping there at night is difficult. I don't even have allergies. There are two holes in the wall of one of the two bedrooms and I am guessing water came in through there during the rainy season.

There is a construction site for a condo right next to the villa. It is very noisy and dusty. You have no privacy when staying under the gazebo or in the pool and the pool was very murky.

The good

The staff are really great and it is easy to communicate with them.

The villa offers a great view of the neighbouring wooded hills and the sea.


I can imagine that if the house was renovated and if the adjacent condo was finished this would be a great place to stay.

I loved the stay. the room was spacious, pool is amazing, food is great and the price i paid was great. Its little bit far from the beach but its a nice 20 min walk so its not too bad. The only downside was a slight smell of mold in the room but the air con sucked out most of the smell

The paneled interior and the painted wood needs serious attention...... the toilet is very small, that doesn't bother me but for some it could be a real set back.The menu has a limited choice, limited bar and beverages. No whiskey for two consecutive nights. But, all that is made up by an appropriate mix of friendliness and efficiency, all the way from the bellboys, the manageress, the reception staff, outstanding housekeeping services and most of all, the service staff in the restaurant. Overall, an extremely family-friendly place, providing generous and extremely tasty food. It is close to Patong beach and very famous Bangla Road. It's not always what it looks like, if we get a chance to travel back to Phuket in near future we would love to put up at Club Bamboo one more time......

Cheers....

Our hotel is always clean well and presented for our visitors
We try our best to provide a large variety of beverages,however due to a great demand for a particular type of spirit i.e whisky we occasional run out because of our exciting happy hour at the bar
this is also one of our popular time of the day
the menu also has a good variety or hot and cold meals ,there is always something for every member of a family to enjoy

If you have respect for yourself then try to find another hotel: we stayed in separate bungalow with the view on "swamp" (that's assumed to be an artificial lake) with constant noise of water pumps system just right outside of our window.. Holes in ceiling and floor where some insects can come through inside your room (we got lizards). Stairs are inconvenient and very steep so it is very difficult to go upstairs with bulky luggage or with children or if you are elder person. Dirty towels in the room and you have to ask manager to change them.. Bath was old and rubbish (we checked two bungalows -they were in same condition). After staying several days in the hotel when we returned lately in our room, we found that two glasses disappeared. We informed reception -they promised to "fix the problem next day" but nothing was done.
Overall condition of the hotel and bungalows leaves bad impression. However, there are definitely positive things about this hotel: it located quite far from crowded Bangla street with all that madness and hustle&bustle activities. You also can find good open food market which located not far away from the hotel.

Dear Sir and Madam
Greeting from Club Bamboo Boutique resort and Spa
Its a shame you did not enjoy your time at our hotel
We try out best to keep all our guest happy ,relaxed and provide a good experience of Club Bamboo
unfortunately your stay was not pleasant due to construction work taking place at another hotel
This is a shame as normally our hotel is very quiet and a relaxed place to be
Club Bamboo always clean and we provide clean towels and bed sheets on daily basic
If any reason we forget to leave extra glasses or cups in the room our staff are always available to help with any issue which may a raise
