What can I say, this hotel was spot on for all my requirements. I was on honeymoon with my wife, and we love the beach and partying. The location of this hotel is less than 100m from the beach, and close to all the watersports activities such as Parasailing, Jetskiing, and Banana-Boat. Walk another 100m along the shoplots, and you will get to Bangla Road where all the clubs and bars are located. Right in front of Patong Beach hotel is a small mall which houses a Boots pharmacy, Sizzler, KFC, Coffee Club, and Wine Connection (which serves up really good pizzas and pastas at reasonable prices). I'd recommend sitting by the 2nd floor balcony of Wine Connection overlooking the beach road if you like to people watch.
We were greeted with cold wet towels and a welcome drink upon check-in to the hotel. During my booking with Agoda I had requested for a room on the 9th floor so I can have a good view of the sea. I was happy to find out that they actually paid heed to my request. Check-in staff at reception were friendly, including the bellboy who showed us our room and all the amenities that were available to use in our room. The bed was comfortable enough, and I think it was a nice touch to lay some artificial grass on the balcony floor. The rooms are modern looking with a centralised lighting system and airconditioning. The airconditioning is very powerful, I might add, which is just what you need during the hot dry season.
There is no free WIFI in the rooms (only in the lobby). But do get a free sim card as you arrive in Phuket airport. You will see a booth near the baggage carousels. The lady manning the booth will give you a free sim card starter pack, and all you need to do is to go to the 7-eleven or any mini-mart to purchase top-up credit and get your unlimited data package working.
Only gripe I have is with the reception staff during my checkout at 7.30am on the 7th December. The male reception staff were not friendly at all. Not even a word of "thank you" or "goodbye" from them.
For this price range and location, I would definitely recommend the Patong Beach Hotel.
However, I will definitely stay in this hotel again if I do return to Phuket!
