“Great stay, very good value...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011

Open lobby felt like a resort so immediately had that "holiday" experience upon arrival... very friendly staff, always smiling...

Room was very spacious; breakfast was great - more than adequate and much variety; great for families too with lots of organised activities. Gym was small but well-equipped.

Kinda weird with the pool in the Burasari Wing - stayed in the Main building and can use the much nicer pool in the Burasari Wing BUT can't use the sunbeds - what's with that?!

Also had a room facing the side-street so early in the morning you can hear the tuk-tuks passing by, and even though it's forgiveable being a resort town in Asia you really can't sleep in if you have a sensitive sleep pattern. Also the fireworks at odd hours - a cultural thing to do with good luck... a waker-upper... the crowing rooster in the morning - another one but it actually puts a smile on one's face.

Resort is in a great location in Patong (assuming you know what the area is all about) with lots of restaurants and bars in walking distance, and night markets too after dinner. 10min walk to Jungceylon Mall and many spa places for both sexes all over. Beach is also adjacent...

Did a cooking class in-house and that was great too.

Room Tip: Avoid street-facing room (not always possible)...

Excellent location on the Patong Beach with easy excess to all the happening places.
Rooms are excellent with good view.Pools, ambience,interior ,hospitality put together makes it one of our favorite spot to come again and again.It is home away from home.

Tsunami of 2005 have not deter the spirit of the people.Caring , Love and affection is in the air the movement you enter the hotel.

Regards

This is my third trip to PHUKET, I visited many hotels but finally i always landed at HOLIDAY INN.
From Location to Hospitality every thing is toooo good over here.
I Enjoyed the SPA MASSAGES, Specially couple message..
Be there to get yourself PAMPERED.
BEACH is just bang opposite and market is just a lane behind.

Had a great stay at the Holiday Inn in May 2011, stayed for 10 nights in a Family Suite. The view from the balcony was not very exciting but still reasonable, the rooms were very roomy & had all the best features we could want. Kids loved the kids room. Only draw back was no flyscreen to balcony so we couldn't sit on it at night as the mozzies would invade the room. Service was excellent, checkin was very nice with personal escort to the room. Found the restaurants excellent value when you have children as they eat free. Breakfast choices are extensive & freshly cooked to your liking. The kids club is superb. Would have been nice if the main pool stayed open for as long as the pool in the Busacorn wing. We have always stayed at the Patong Merlin in Phuket in the past & while the room view and pools are far more attractive, the kids club & service at the Holiday Inn for a family with kids is simply superb

Stayed for 1 night. The hotel is divided between a new and old section. We stayed at the newer section. The room was large and comfortable. ours was facing the large pool and was quiet. The breakfast was next to the second pool across the road from the beach. The beach was nice, but you have to pay for the chairs. A good fitness center is also available for free. and although the hotel was full it did not feel overcrowded.

We went to Phuket with parents as well as my 3 children ranging from 16-5yo, we had a few hiccups at check in as our rooms were not ready and had to be changed around but Sandy was wonderful, she made sure we had drinks while we waited and kept us informed all the time on how long it might be before we can go to our rooms.

PROS:
Kids Club/Kids Pool Area: wonderful my 5yo loved it, he is still asking when he can go back to them, the kids pool area is lovely it is great for the kids to play in without being too crowded

Room Service: good value for money when you are just too tired/hot to go out

Breakfast: wonderful selection for breakfast, items can be made to order and I am sure the kids just about tried everything, well worth making sure you book your room to include it

Babysitting service: the wonderful ladies are a gem to have around and adore the kids, you feel comfortable having them look after the kids in your room while you can have some adult time

CONS:
Internet: have to pay internet access, could have been a bit cheaper

Kids Pool: need to have a few more chairs to adults that are looking after their kids while they swim

Resturants at Resort: it was a bit hit and miss one night it was lovely the next not soo good, we ended up eating out on the main stret areas the last few nights because of this.

This was my 1st trip to phuket and I have to say they made it wonderful we are looking at going back again next year and would certainly stay here again with a problem

Holiday Inn Resort in Phuket is a nice hotel on Patong beach which is not very attractive. The resort has an old building and a new one. The new building is very nice and specious with a big pool in the center. The old building has a pool closer to the beach though there are no views of the sea. The staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is just 5 minutes walk from all the restaurants and bars of Patong.
