My husband and I stayed here in august 2013 and I stayed here last year with my then 12 yr old son. I would certainly stay here again. I like the rooms with the best biggest king bed and the pool is always clean and cool. The breakfast is great with many choices. I always use the gym and find it clean and although simple it is good and clean with iced drinking water awaiting, I love the treadmill looking over the pool. The beach is right across the road and all the shops are nearby. It is easy to get around Patong from this central but in the thick of it location. The crepe lady at the end of the driveway is the best in Patong. There is a man who parks at the front of the banana walk with a gold colored 4wd taxi Mr Paphran, he is a great driver and speaks English very well and he does airport transfers for 800 baht. We use him for all our drives other than when using a tuk tuk. at night. the food ordered by the pool is great and very well priced. I really like the Patong Beach Hotel and will stay here again.
