We spent our honeymoon in this hotel. After an enduring flight from Melbourne we arrived there at 4:30am local time. The reception staff were quite rude and arrogant when we checked in and as it was near to new years we had this god aweful bass playing from a floating party barge. This aside we had a wonderful time. The deluxe seaview room was lovely, we were in room 1602 and this overlooked the ocean. The buffet breakfast was good but it was sometimes left overs from the previous night dinners. It was a short walk to do all of the shopping my wife could ever want and we found a wonderful gentleman by the name of "johnny" (shop 5 near the holiday inn) make sure you see him if you get the chance - don't take his first price ha ha. We caught many tuk tuks from the hotel (best one was the pink one with "my dream" on the windshield) only costing around $800THB to get to Bhudda and all around Phuket etc. Overall was a great experience and im sure when we next return which wont be far away in the future we will stay here again.
